Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Laura Joy Hurst, MD (University of Chicago)
Description: This is a book containing cases that you would see in emergency medicine. The case is followed by pertinent questions, a description of the disease, the treatment, as well as clinical pearls.
Purpose: The book is targeted toward students in emergency medicine. It is designed to simulate a patient encounter while bringing out important points in the differential diagnosis, disease process, or treatment. The objectives are consistently met.
Audience: According to both the author and my opinion, the book is written for students. It is basic in its approach. Furthermore, the cases presented cover some of the most frequently encountered complaints in emergency medicine.
Features: Forty-seven cases in emergency medicine are covered, with each case having questions with targeted answers, analysis of the case, approach to the disease process, comprehension questions, and clinical pearls. The organization was consistent allowing the student to approach the case with questions and treatment choices as they might in a real patient setting. The comprehension questions at the end reinforced the pertinent points of the case and the explanations of the answers were thorough.
Assessment: I think any student doing a rotation in emergency medicine would benefit from these case scenarios. It provides a practical approach to a disease while highlighting the points that are often tested on USMLE.
