Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Lisa N Rapoport, MD, MS (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This broad overview of common clinical problems encountered in an emergency department is divided into four sections that cover special aspects of emergency medicine, management of common life-threatening problems, and trauma and nontrauma emergencies. The previous edition was published in 1992.
Purpose: Because of the expansive nature of the goal of providing an overview, the authors intentionally opted to forgo pathophysiology of disease in favor of diagnosis and treatment, which results in a quick reference for an on-the-go review. To this extent, the book is very successful in meeting its objectives.
Audience: The authors intend the book for all practitioners of emergency medicine, ranging from medical students to residents, attendings, and physician extenders. Although it is perhaps less appropriate for attendings than it is for residents and students, it does provide an efficient review of some larger topics that attendings may find useful.
Features: The book starts with a succinct guide to ACLS drugs in its inside sleeves. It includes a thorough discussion of essentials of emergency medicine, such as shock, respiratory distress, ACLS protocols, and cardiac arrhythmias. One of the strongest visual chapters is on procedures, which contains helpful diagrams and is a great review. A topic that could have used more coverage is pain control and anesthesia in the emergency department, such as nerve blocks and conscious sedation.
Assessment: Overall, this is a very useful book and a fabulous review of emergency medicine topics. Admittedly, it doesn't cover pathophysiology and thus shouldn't be compared with Tintinalli's Emergency Medicine: A Comprehensive Study Guide, 6th edition (McGraw-Hill, 2004) or Rosen's Emergency Medicine: Concepts and Clinical Practice, 6th edition (Elsevier, 2006). I could see using this as a quick reference either on the job or after coming home from a shift for a quick read. The sections on seizures and syncope justify the new edition.
