Overview


Emergency Medicine Recall is an important addition to the successful RECALL series, which uses a double-column, rapid-fire, question and answer format to help medical students, residents, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other healthcare professionals to recall important information presented on wards. This information also is critical for USMLE test preparation. The text contains many patient management questions that are written in the emergency room setting, thus preparing students for questions that address EM-specific issues.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

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 handbook on emergency medicine topics is presented in a question/answer format. It is part of a "recall" series of handbooks that also cover other medical specialties.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide third and fourth year medical students and housestaff on their emergency medicine rotations with the information necessary to provide problem-focused care to the patient in the emergency department. These worthy objectives are mostly met in this book.
Audience: The book is written for students and resident physicians in emergency medicine and is meant to be carried as a handbook which can be referred to for advice regarding basic patient care and as an aid in organizing the student's presentation to faculty. The editors are emergency physicians, but are not board certified in emergency medicine.
Features: The book includes 26 chapters based upon medical or surgical emergencies. It is written in a question/answer format with a few black-and-white illustrations. No references are listed. Due to the brevity of the text, significant amounts of important information are lacking.
Assessment: This question/answer handbook will be useful primarily to the student on his/her emergency medicine clerkship. It can be used as a quick reference to assist students in organizing their thoughts for managing and presenting the patient. Other handbooks which are more comprehensive, such as Doherty's The Washington Manual of Surgery (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1997) are probably better portable guides, however. The book could also be used as a rapid review prior to in-training exams for the emergency medicine resident physician.

    Med student review

    This book is great, it just gives you the need to know stuff. And also really helps with pimp questions. Its a must have! Although they do have one in a PDA version I hear.
