Overview

Organized for easy reference, this comprehensive, concise, and clinically focused text covers all aspects of emergency medicine. Chapters follow a consistent, structured format—clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, evaluation, management, and disposition with highlighted critical interventions and common pitfalls.

In this edition, the Pain and Pain Management section is now at the front of the book, since a large percentage of emergency department patients present with pain-related complaints. The Trauma section now follows the High-Risk Chief Complaint section. A new two-color design will help readers find critical elements of each chapter easily.

A companion Website will include the fully searchable text, more than 400 self-assessment questions with answers, and additional images and tables.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Peder Todd Lindberg, MD, PhD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is an update of an authoritative reference for the rapidly-progressing field of emergency medicine.
Purpose: It is intended as a comprehensive textbook and a practical clinical guide for the field.
Audience: The book is appropriate for highly-motivated residents or for more experienced practitioners. It is likely above the level of the novice or student.
Features: This is an excellent comprehensive review of emergency medicine. Each section does a superb job of capturing the questions that continually arise in practice. When available, the most up-to-date evidence is cited, supported by clinical opinion from practitioners of distinction. The opening sections, which provide a brief, concentrated discussion of high risk ("true emergency") cases, are an outstanding landmark that sets this book apart. Although the pictures are excellent, many suffer from the lack of color.
Assessment: In the company of an excellent collection of similar resources, this book stands strong and offers an important voice and perspective at a level appropriate for many practitioners. It artfully avoids the risks of irrelevance and wordiness. Its strength lies in the relevance of each comment. Though extensive, it is still concise, an outstanding balance.
