Overview

The Companion Handbook model applied especially well to emergency medicine,where quick access and quick answers to problems are of paramount concern. This addition to the series serves as a concise yet thorough summary of the clinical portions of the fourth edition of Tintinalli's Emergency Medicine with emphasis on on-the-spot diagnosis and management. Page-referenced to the parent text for further review.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ira J. Blumen, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is the first publication of this companion handbook, which is based on the fourth edition of the American College of Emergency Physicians' Emergency Medicine Study Guide (Tintinalli, et al) . The contributors are all active in emergency medicine. Of interest, the chapters are not written by the same physicians who wrote the original corresponding chapters in the ACEP study guide.
Purpose: The purpose is to serve as a convenient pocket manual, providing on-the-spot guidelines for diagnosis and management of emergency conditions. It will assist those who practice in any emergency care setting to provide the best patient care possible.
Audience: The companion handbook is intended for emergency medicine physicians, residents, and students.
Features: The book is presented in 22 sections, lacking only four nonclinical sections found in the parent textbook. There are 177 chapters and more than 900 pages, addressing all the clinical topics found in the study guide, with several chapters now combined. The general format is very easy to use and follow. Chapters begin with clinical features, followed by diagnosis and differential, emergency department care, and a section entitled "If Standard Treatment Fails." The management sections are often presented in numerical sequence. There is good use of tables and charts. Several of the chapters include good quality black-and-white drawings reproduced from the study guide. The handbook does not include the pathophysiology material contained in the larger text. At the end of each chapter, a cross-reference is made to the corresponding chapter (number, title and author) in the text.
Assessment: This handbook presents clinical information in a well-written, easily accessible, concise manner. It is not intended to replace the larger comprehensive study guide. However, in a busy emergency department, students, residents, and attendings may reach for this handbook as their first choice to help them in the diagnosis and management of emergency conditions. This handbook is certain to be a best seller among residents and students.
