Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: amy logan marr, BS, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This board review style book concisely organizes pertinent facts from throughout the scope of emergency medicine, allowing the reader to use study time efficiently.
Purpose: The review is designed to optimize study time by narrowing the field emergency medicine into pertinent categories. The author accomplishes his objectives through organization of patient presentations, pertinent pathology, key history and necessary treatment and disposition.
Audience: The book is written for an audience preparing for Emergency Medicine board exams or those desiring to gain focused information about their specialty and patient presentations. It accomplishes this task and is also very well geared for residents throughout their Emergency Medicine training. While it lacks the depth gained from more textbook discussions, the time saved appeals to a resident time schedule. The author is a credible authority with both practical and academic experience in the field of Emergency Medicine.
Features: The book covers a broad scope of patient presentations encountered in the field of Emergency Medicine, their various common clinical presentations, associated history and pathology, as well as both acute and chronic treatment recommendations and patient disposition. While the text is very concise, some amount of illustration may make the book more helpful and actually cut down on the amount of text necessary to communicate certain ideas and theories.
Assessment: In my practice as a resident in Emergency Medicine, I have found this review immensely helpful when I am short on time yet desire a focused study session. The organization and topics are presented in a useful manner and the text is straightforward and understandable.
