Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer:Adrianne N Haggins, MD(University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description:This is a concisely written yet comprehensive review of clinical cases frequently seen in emergency medicine. It highlights often tested clinical pearls and incorporates related basic physiology concepts. Although organized primarily in a question and answer format, it also includes clinical vignettes, charts, and mnemonics.
Purpose:The stated purpose is to provide medical students with an efficient way to review the critical concepts frequently tested on the emergency medicine clerkship exam and USMLE Step 2. It provides a thorough review in a concise format that is easily digestible in a short amount of time.
Audience:According to the author, this review is intended for medical students in a emergency medicine clerkship or preparing for the emergency medicine related concepts on the USMLE Step 2. This is most appropriate for medical students, as it provides just enough information to link key terms with concepts to insure rapid recall during an exam. The author is a resident physician in emergency medicine and he collaborated with students who recently excelled at Step 2.
Features:The book is organized based on biological systems and specialties, i.e., gastrointestinal, neurological, endocrine, obstetrics/gynecology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, etc. It even manages to incorporate some historical aspects of emergency medicine related to EMS development. The book is entirely black and white, with some charts, but it lacks images, illustrations, and diagrams. The index reflects the broad range of topics, and it isdetailed enough to find topics easily.
Assessment:This book meets its objectives, providing medical students with a quick read that broadly covers an array of key topics in emergency medicine. It emphasizes key concepts solely and provides limited rationale for clinical management, therefore it is ideal for students who have used another book for thorough study, and just need a quick refresher just prior to the exam.

    Excellent EM clerkship book

    Reviewer: Fourth medical student going into emergency medicine Overview: Deja Review EM is a question/answer book much like the very popular First aid series or Recall series. It is similar to the First aid series except this particular one has sections of brief, but high yield clinical vignettes that I thought were particular useful and some nice charts. Positive: 1. It was packed with very high-yield questions, all bread-n-butter EM topics that attendings I worked with asked me. 2. Charts: It contained very useful charts I used a lot such as a tox antidote chart, toxidrome chart, and NIH stroke scale that was easy to refer to. 3. Clinical Vignettes: Short brief basic scenarios that one would normally see in the ED with brief diagnosis that was also very good to read. 4. Short and to the point: Much as I wanted to read Rosen¡¯s or Tin, I had little time to do that type of reading. I really needed a book that had sort of ¡°just the facts¡± information for quick reference and something I can read in bursts like when I am in the bathroom. 5. Pretty small compare to other review books and would carry it with me on the wards. 6. Very well-organized by systems which I am use to. Negatives: 1. I think the thing that makes the book so useful on the EM clerkship can be a negative. Since it is just Q/A format, it does not have pathophysio that may be important to know, but if I needed to know that I would just use a major text. 2. I think the organ-based system is great, but I know some books out there use more of a complaint-based approach much in the way you would see a patient is. Some people prefer this method of learning which is totally fine, if that is the case, the system-approach of this book may not be the best for you. Overall: I honestly thought this book was a great read that was fast to read and very high-yield. I do really felt it helped me immensely on my EM clerkship as I could quickly look via it after I saw a patient. My clerkship was a good experience and my attendings actually encouraged me to look things up after I saw a patient. I know not all clerkships work this way. I also choice this book since it seems to be really new, I think it came out a week before my rotation. I also used Recall, which I thought was good, but a little too dense. Anyways, I highly recommend this book to anyone doing an EM clerkship.
