Weighted Numerical Score: 98 - 5 Stars!
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 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.
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 paragraphs and figures for a clear and concise review. Procedures boxes and online video atlas have been added to this edition and full access to the content is available online using a unique activation code.
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."
