Reviewer: Michael D. Zwank, MD, RDMS, FACEP (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description:

This review was cowritten by Brian Roach, MD (Regions Hospital)

This is a detailed, concise, and thorough review of common orthopedic injuries seen in the emergency department as well as the outpatient clinic. It provides written descriptions and multiple illustrations to demonstrate vital principles in management of patients with these injuries.


Purpose: The purpose is to give medical students, junior residents, and those less familiar with common orthopedic procedures an understanding of the relevant anatomy, descriptions of the procedures, and relevant tips and considerations. This book fills a need in an area where emergency clinicians can often be inundated with information on a wide variety of practice styles.
Audience: The target audience includes medical students, junior residents, and those less familiar with common orthopedic injuries. The book accurately targets this group.
Features: The book is organized by body system — the shoulder, elbow, forearm, wrist, hand, pelvis, hips, thigh, knee, ankle, and foot. Each topic includes indications for a procedure, how the procedure is performed, the ultimate goal of the procedure with tolerances listed in most situations. Each topic also discusses how pain control can best be addressed, as well as appropriate splint and immobilization techniques. This book is unique in the number of pictures and images, all of which help readers understand the procedure.
Assessment: This is an excellent, concise reference for dealing with common orthopedic problems in the emergency setting. It provides much needed information regarding tolerances and acceptable reductions for the nonorthopedist.
