Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kerryann Broderick, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is a case-based book that is intended to teach common problems and principles in emergency medicine.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to be a supplement to the "House Officer Series." The authors have tried to include common and uncommon problems seen in the emergency department setting. "
Audience: The audience is house officers and medical students. This book would be very useful to this audience as well as the more junior emergency medicine residents.
Features: This book contains no color photographs, and the radiographs are small and of fair to poor quality. The electrocardiograph strips are very small and difficult to interpret. The reference section at the end of each case appears to be adequate. The pearls and pitfalls section at the end of each case are interesting, helpful, and unusual.
Assessment: This attractive book is a helpful addendum to Emergency Medicine for the House Officer. It stimulates learning through a case-based method through patient scenarios, thoughtful questions regarding the differential diagnosis, treatment, and principles of the case. Case-based learning can be very enjoyable and an effective method of education. The authors do a good job of reaching their intended audience and goals.
