Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Covers a huge range of clinical conditions and is well illustrated with clinical photographs, x-ray films, diagrams and clinical pathways. What is particularly good about this textbook is the practical nature of its clinical information. The language is straightforward and the clinical decision pathways are clear. I am struggling to find any areas to improve on in this text which has already become my standard reference work in the ED." - review of the previous edition by Dr. Steven Bush, Unividas,

"This is an excellent resource for emergency physicians. It provides comprehensive coverage of all key topics and core content areas. With the breadth of information this book covers, a well-organized format makes for a succinct reference for study or review. The information is up to date with algorithms and treatment guidelines that are also useful as a reference for practicing physicians. The electronic access makes this resource valuable as a tool that can be used in the clinical setting when quick retrieval of information is needed. As the specialty of emergency medicine is rapidly evolving, this second edition is justified as it provides new and updated material."- Jason Vanvalkenburg, MD (Regions Hospital and Level 1 Trauma Center) Doody review!

    The Best

    Having read portions of all of the major texts in Emergency Medicine, this is far and away the best one out there. I would keep a Roberts and Hedges on the shelf to consult for procedures, though - the only area in which Tintinalli is somewhat better.
