Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joshua J Peltier, MD (Regions Hospital and Level 1 Trauma Center)
Description: This set of flashcards features clinical photographs and imaging of common conditions and complications seen in the emergency department, providing a concise, high-yield review of material in The Atlas of Emergency Medicine, 3rd edition, by the same authors (McGraw-Hill, 2010).
Purpose: According to the authors, the purpose is to condense key visual information on emergent conditions for rapid review and learning. This is a worthwhile feat as visual cues often aid in the recall of previously learned information and condensed formats can be reviewed in a more time-efficient manner. These flashcards allow for the quick, concise review of many high-yield emergency medicine topics.
Audience: These flashcards are intended for a wide variety of practitioners, including attending physicians, resident physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, medical students, and anyone else who evaluates patients in an urgent or emergent setting.
Features: The 264 flashcards detail the most common and acute clinical presentations encountered in the emergency department. Each card has a high quality, full-color image on one side, with a brief, high-yield description of the clinical problem on the other side. The majority of images are photographs of patients taken in the acute, clinical setting, but plain radiographs, ultrasound images, CT scans, and electrocardiographs are also included. Each problem is broken down into diagnosis, clinical findings, and treatment. Treatment is focused on acute management, but no primary references are provided to support the recommendations. Topics are limited by the ability to visually represent the clinical problem and include trauma, ophthalmology, ENT, dermatology, infectious disease, orthopedics, and toxicology. Also included are several electrocardiographs reviewing common cardiac problems and the expected ECG finding and clinical implications. Flashcards are organized by organ system, but the lack of a table of contents or index makes finding specific problems difficult.
Assessment: Quality full-color images provide a great tool for visual learners and improve visual diagnosis skills. References for the acute management of clinical problems would further enhance the content of these flashcards. Though it is not an exhaustive review of all emergent topics, the concise format allows for quick review and makes this a successful study aid.
