Overview

Roberts and Hedges’ Clinical Procedures in Emergency Medicine continues its long tradition of being the most well-known and trusted procedures manual in emergency medicine. The newly revised 6th edition of this classic medical reference has been thoroughly updated with step-by-step Review, Procedure, and Ultrasound Boxes covering the latest equipment, devices, drug therapies, and techniques you need to know for effective practice of emergency medicine. You'll access complete and detailed guidance on exactly when, how, and why to perform all of today’s common and uncommon procedures and get the best results.


  • Understand the ins and outs of every procedure you're likely to consider, such as how, why, when to, and when not to perform them, in addition to other emergency procedures that may be an option.
  • Rapidly review the entire contents online, including brand-new videos of common and complex procedures, at Expert Consult.
  • See entire procedures at a glance with the addition of new Procedure Boxes, which offer step-by-step visual instruction on over 250 emergency techniques. Ideal for point-of-care reference, these Procedure Boxes also serve as a comprehensive mini atlas and are especially useful for less-encountered procedures or those that require complex equipment.
  • Easily apply the latest emergency ultrasound techniques through new Ultrasound Boxes, all of which are expertly written and richly illustrated with photographs of the technique as well as screen captures of the US images.
  • Master today's hottest new procedures including ultrasound for diagnosis of pneumothorax; loop abscess drainage; pediatric fluid resuscitation; and video-assisted intubation.
  • Clearly and efficiently visualize all emergency procedures with a complete overhaul of figures, now nearly all in full color; new diagnostic images representing multiple modalities; and online-only procedural videos demonstrating key techniques.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Michael D. Zwank, MD, RDMS, FACEP (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: "This review was cowriiten by Marc Ellingson, MD (Regions Hospital)
This edition of a book on a broad range of common and uncommon procedures encountered in the emergency department setting expands on previous editions by including figures, color photographs, and online access to video content that will greatly enhance readers' ability to learn and accurately perform procedures in the ED. The previous edition was published in 2010."
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a thorough, yet easily accessible reference on the broad range of procedures that are performed by emergency providers. This is an important objective due to the extensive depth of knowledge and skills that are needed in the emergency department. This edition continues to fulfill the role of a standard reference in emergency medicine.
Audience: This book is intended for emergency providers, primarily physicians and advanced care practitioners. However, it also would be useful for other caregivers such as medical students and first responders.
Features: The topic of emergency procedures is vast and this book covers an exhaustive list of them, from bread-and-butter emergency medicine to the less commonly performed techniques. The procedures are organized by organ system in a logical and easy to follow fashion. Each procedure is covered extensively with a thorough description, yet has easy to follow graphs and figures for a clear and concise review. Procedure boxes and an online video atlas have been added to this edition and full access to the content is available online using a unique activation code.
Assessment: Roberts & Hedges, as it is known to all ER physicians, has been considered the gold standard for emergency procedures for decades, and the sixth edition does not disappoint. This book truly covers an exhaustive list of emergency procedures with great attention to detail. The graphs and figures accurately demonstrate many of the procedures, making this an invaluable resource for quick review at the bedside.

From the Publisher

"If I am asked 'what is the best text on how to do procedures?' There is only one answer, Roberts and Hedges...I highly recommend that everyone involved in Emergency Medicine, whether clinical, teaching, pre-hospital care, or research, have access to this book."

- Journal of Emergency Medicine

"Required reading for any medical student or intern about to perform their first anything: laceration repair, incision and drainage, or central line. Even the more seasoned practitioner can find alternative techniques to reduce a stubborn shoulder or brush up on the anatomy for superficial nerve blocks...With its easily readable style, far-reaching subject matter, and versatility, Clinical Procedures in Emergency Medicine is an essential in every ED." - Annals of Emergency Medicine
