Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer:Matthew C Valente, MD(University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description:This is an excellent review of emergency medicine in easy-to-read case-based questions that provide readers with sufficient information to understand the key concepts of diagnosis and management in the emergency setting.
Purpose:The purpose is to allow medical students, housestaff, and faculty an easy reference to assess their understanding of basic concepts in emergency medicine. The book meets these objectives, but it is best suited for medical students and junior housestaff.
Audience:Although it is intended to be used by all levels of medical professionals from medical students to fully trained physicians, the book is probably best suited for 3rd and 4th year medical students as they prepare for their USMLE step 2 examination or emergency medicine rotation, and as an introduction for housestaff who are just starting their residency in emergency medicine. It would also be useful for non-emergency medicine housestaff or physicians who treat patients in an urgent care or inpatient setting.
Features:Many of the core topics in emergency medicine are covered. Most chapters are broken down by symptom or chief complaint. The book is relatively well organized, but it lacks a few core topics. Pediatrics, in particular, is not discussed.
Assessment:This book does an excellent job of allowing readers to quickly breeze through many core topics in emergency medicine in a question and answer format. The explanations of answers are easy to read, concise, and cite appropriate references for further reading. I would recommendthis book to colleagues entering emergency medicine as an appropriate self-assessment guide during medical school or early in their residency training.
