Overview

Featuring more than 1,100 full-color illustrations, this atlas is a visual guide to the diagnosis and management of medical and surgical emergencies. Emergency medicine depends on fast, accurate interpretation of visual cues, making this atlas an invaluable tool.

The book is divided into sections on prehospital management and resuscitation, organ system emergencies, and multisystem emergencies. For each specific emergency, the authors present both clinical photographs and illustrations of significant diagnostic test findings such as specimens, radiographs, endoscopic images, and ECGs. The succinct text accompanying the illustrations covers patient presentation, diagnosis, and clinical management.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Laura Joy Hurst, MD (University of Chicago)
Description: This is a collection of visual images, predominantly photographs and tables, covering a wide variety of clinical conditions encountered in emergency medicine. Each image is accompanied by text, briefly commenting on clinical presentation, pathophysiology, diagnosis, management, and clinical complications if relevant.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide visual images of a wide variety of topics in emergency medicine. Much of our specialty relies on visual diagnosis. While it is impossible to encounter all of these situations in a clinical practice, this book provides a much needed supplement. This is a thorough review of those diseases — the photographs are high quality and the text provides a concise yet superficial review of the relevant corresponding information. The author has done a superb job of collecting high quality images supported by a concise, high-yield review of the topic written by an expert in the field.
Audience: This book is written for emergency medicine practitioners by emergency medicine practitioners. Anyone involved in patient care from the most junior student to the experienced clinician, would find some useful teaching point or diagnostic tool in this resource.
Features: This book covers, at least briefly, just about every topic in emergency medicine, including prehospital care, weapons of mass destruction, and toxicology as well as the expected cardiology, dermatology, pediatric illness, surgical emergencies, etc. The best features are the high quality images and the vast number of topics. The book is a great reference to turn to with a particular question in mind, but also an interesting resource to just pick up and flip through. It's very readable. In some respects, I think the inclusion criteria may have been a bit too broad. I'm not sure we need to see pictures of roll-over accidents or prolonged extrications or if I really need to be able to visually recognize a papillary muscle rupture.
Assessment: This book will be a valuable asset to my collection. It's the most thorough atlas of emergency medicine that I've read, although in comparison to others, the text information is a bit sparse, leaving me feeling that I should look up the topic elsewhere to have a thorough understanding of management.
