Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This small manual introduces the physiology and applications of ultrasound for emergency physicians, trauma surgeons, and multidisciplinary intensivists.
Purpose: This concise introduction covers a wide spectrum of diseases and applications.
Audience: Practitioners new to ultrasound and trainees are an appropriate audience for this work, which originates from three authors who are directors of emergency ultrasound programs in major institutions in the United States.
Features: After an introductory review of the physics of ultrasound and available technology, the book details diagnostic approaches with an emphasis on trauma, pregnancy, abdominal aneurysm, and chest disease. A shorter, second group of chapters discusses the use of ultrasound for vascular access, drainage of fluid collections, and joint evaluation. Chapters are clearly written with high quality multicolored line drawings and ultrasound images. Where appropriate, tables highlight key papers and data. Each chapter includes a citation list reflecting primary work dating to within one year of publication. The table of contents not only groups chapters, but also provides subheadings that allow readers rapid access to sample images or to a quick answer to a specific question. A concluding subject index provides adequate access to content.
Assessment: This manual is a quick introduction to an important modality for practitioners. It may also be useful for teaching presentations as it provides key data.
From the Publisher
"As more departments now have access to ultrasound, it is important for physicians to be comfortable with the use of ultrasound in the emergency department (ED) and other critical care settings. Manual of Emergency and Critical Care Ultrasound is a practical and concise introduction to bedside ultrasound. It is small enough to fit in your pocket but contains adequate information to make it useful in the ED."
--Annals of Emergency Medicine

"A concise, clearly-written text....What distinguishes this text is the inclusion of chapters on newer applications such as chest sonography for the presence of lung water, ocular scanning for retinal/lens detachment and intracranial pressure assessment, and bone ultrasound for fracture and dislocation....A timely and eminently readable for the trainee and practitioner of emergency and critical care medicine."
--Critical Care Medicine
