Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Leslie Zun, MD (Mt. Sinai Hospital Medical Center)
Description: The book is a handbook for students who rotate through the emergency department. The textbook contains general information on emergency medicine, common procedures, typical chief complaints and selected topics.
Purpose: The purpose of this book was to provide medical students with the essential information that is needed for an emergency medicine rotation at a reasonable cost. The authors did well at providing a brief overview of the essential topics that students need to know.
Audience: The book is written for medical students primarily during their emergency medicine rotation.
Features: There are four sections to the book: general information about emergency medicine, common procedures performed in the emergency department, chief complaint descriptions, and topics. The book provides the orientation that students will need to know when they rotate in the emergency department.
Assessment: There have been a few new books on the market to address the same introduction to emergency medicine. Although the book is well written, it has little additional information to add to the many texts that have already been published.
