A great resource as a medical student and now as I begin my Emergency Medicine residency. Just enough information to be useful without being overwhelming when you're extremely busy...Just enough information to remind you of other critical diagnoses for the chief complaint of the patient. This book is written by EM physicians and you'll learn to think like one when you read this text.
