Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Jon C. Olsen, M.D., F.A.C.E.P.(University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive reference textbook of emergency medicine. The previous edition was published in 1998.
Purpose: The editors' purpose is to provide a book that will serve as the educational corpus that will contribute to the competency of emergency medicine specialists. The purpose is more than adequately met.
Audience: The book is written primarily for practicing emergency medicine attending and resident physicians. The authors are almost entirely emergency physicians from academic centers and include most of the leaders in the specialty. Previous editions included authors from other medical specialties.
Features: This is a comprehensive review of the specialty of emergency medicine. The illustrations are black and white, numerous, and generally of high quality. This latest edition includes numerous algorithms and the ultrasound information is incorporated into the relevant chapters rather than presented in a separate chapter. There is comprehensive coverage of pathophysiology and epidemiology in addition to numerous tables. The index is comprehensive but difficult to read due to a very small print. The overall appearance of the book is clean, but it is cumbersome as a three volume set with 2,766 pages.
Assessment: This edition is a much needed update for the emergency medicine community. Emergency departments and medical libraries should have this book on their shelves. Due to the length of the book, its use as a review for board exams is limited and it should be used primarily as a reference by practicing physicians. Other textbooks of emergency medicine such as Tintinalli et al.'s Emergency Medicine: A Comprehensive Study Guide, 5th edition (McGraw-Hill, 2000), or Harwood-Nuss et al.'s Clinical Practice of Emergency Medicine, 3rd edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins 2001), are more focused and better resources for emergency medicine residents in training or as reviews for board exams.
From The Critics
The 4th edition (1998) is suggested both for initial purchase and for a minimal core collection in Brandon-Hill. This latest edition contains 27 more chapters (which now makes 201 total), and includes a new section on special populations and one on cardinal presentations, which offers brief, complaint-based chapters for common signs and symptom. The remaining sections address fundamental clinical concepts such as resuscitation, shock, and mechanical ventilation; trauma, with chapters on systemic, orthopedic, and soft tissue injuries and violence and abuse; medicine and surgery, with chapters arranged system by system; environment and toxicology, covering injuries such as frostbite, poison, drugs, and lightning injuries; emergency medical services, including a chapter on disaster preparedness; and clinical practice and administration and philosophical issues. Editors John Marx (U. of North Carolina School of Medicine), Robert Hockberger (UCLA School of Medicine), and Ron Walls (Harvard Medical School) have been involved with this textbook for more than two decades.

    Emergency Medicine: Reorganized

    The fifth edition of Rosen's Emergency Medicine has been substantially reorganized from the previous 4th edition. An attempt is made on presenting the subject matter in a more clinically relevant format with a focus on Evidence Based Medicine. The 3 volume set begins with Critical Management and Principles - subjects that are essential core material particular to emergency medicine. Next is a section on Cardinal Presentations, e.g. chest pain, fever, syncope and back pain. This section is extremely valuable; though Tintinnalli had a similar section in her 4th edition, it was omitted in her latest 5th edition and is not present in Rosen's previous edition. Contrary to what one would expect, the 5th edition is about the same overall size as the last. It accommodates 27 new chapters without adding additional pages. Hence the material has been significantly pared down. In many ways this is good. Subjects are covered more concisely than the verbose style of the past. However some things I had found helpful in the previous edition, (diagrams of neuroanatomy in the chapter on stroke) is now gone. The brevity of the subjects treated almost require a prior working knowledge of the material. There is much less reference made to the literature. For these reasons, I give the 5th edition 4 stars instead of 5. I plan on keeping my 4th edition as a back-up. Though very useful and more easily readable, I look forward to a future edition that can combine conciseness and an efficiency of words with more complete explanations.
