More About This Textbook


Pocket Emergency Medicine contains the essential information that residents and medical students in the emergency department need to have at their fingertips. Major sections cover symptoms and diseases of each organ system as well as infectious diseases, environmental exposures, hematology and oncology, pediatric emergencies, the psychiatric patient, toxicology, airway management, and trauma.

Information is presented in concise, rapid-access format, with easy-to-scan bulleted lists and tables. Chapters follow a standard structure—differential diagnosis, history, classic findings, critical studies, ED interventions, pearls, and references. The six-ring binder can accommodate the student's or resident's own notes.

New topics covered in this edition include bioterrorism, distraction injuries, and indications for bedside emergency ultrasound. A special considerations section has been added to each chapter. Other new features include an acronym table, an introductory differential diagnosis table boxed for quick access, and an updated appendix with ACLS/PALS protocols, ICU medications, antibiotics, and formulas.

Please be advised of a correction to the Index. The listing for “Pulmonary Embolism and Deep Vein Thrombosis” currently lists 11-13, but it should be listed as 1-11, indicating the section number not the page number range.

    Not worth the money

    I had been extremely impressed by the Pocket Notebook for Internal Medicine, and was hoping for the same quality when getting this pocketbook. Not so. Though it is comprehensive, has little detail within each bullet point. I would not recommend it.
