Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jon C. Olsen, M.D., F.A.C.E.P.(University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This pocket sized manual is the companion handbook to Emergency Medicine: A Comprehensive Study Guide, 6th edition, by Tintinalli et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2004). The previous edition was released in 2000.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a portable, pocket-sized reference on the clinical features, differential diagnosis, care and disposition of patients presenting to the emergency department. These important objectives are met and exceeded in this excellent book.
Audience: The intended audience is healthcare workers who are engaged in the practice of clinical emergency medicine. The primary audience are resident and attending physicians, but RNs, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants are also targeted. The authors are a very credible group of practicing, mostly academic emergency medicine attending physicians.
Features: The book includes a comprehensive, succinct review of the medical and traumatic conditions that patients present with at the emergency department. The book contains a remarkable amount of information is a relatively small size and focuses on the key facts and not on the pathophysiology or esoteric information. The book is primarily text with a limited number of colored plates and diagrams. Although meant as a pocket-sized reference, you would need a large pocket and strong shoulder to carry the book on a regular basis.
Assessment: This book is outstanding. It is packed with information and amazingly comprehensive for its size. It uses a "just the facts" approach. If one is looking for a condensed version of an emergency medicine textbook, this is the book. It is the best in its class. This latest edition includes helpful color plates of dermatologic conditions and contemporary information on bioterrorism, SARS, West Nile virus and toxicology.

    I Also Recommend:

    Incredibly Useful

    An overall great resource and in a manageable size (as opposed to the giant version). It has just enough information for the ER physician/physician assistant, but isn't necessarily the comprehensive story. Highly recommend as a first go-to book - it's really exceptionally useful. One of the favorite "carry around" medical reference books I own. Completely not useful if you are not in an urgent care setting as you would want more in depth information in other primary care arenas.

    Good book for residency

    Pocket sized guide you should always keep in your back pocket for residency. Contains clinical features and differential diagnoses that can help in situations and to review information that is a little hazy. Recommend it for anyone and everyone who is planning to go under residency or is already in.

    Resident / Medical Student Must Have

    If you're interested in EM or doing a rotation this is a must have book that will fit in you pocket. I read all of the last edition and bought the new edition without hesitation when I started my EM rotation.
