Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Samantha E. Kealey, MD (Regions Hospital and Level 1 Trauma Center)
Description: This book covers the need-to-know information to prepare for the emergency medicine written board exam or in-training exam. It uses an outline format as well as pictures to provide accurate, evidence-based, and concise answers to frequently tested topics on the emergency medicine written board exam.
Purpose: The authors' aim is to provide clear, concise, and easily comprehendible answers to the most commonly tested clinical scenarios on the emergency medicine board exam. This book offers a wide breadth of information in a compressed fashion to maximize the reader's time while preparing for the written boards.
Audience: It is intended for residents and new emergency medicine physicians preparing for their board examinations. In addition, it could serve as a reference for medical students and residents during their clinical training, as it provides best practice management solutions for most clinical problems encountered in the emergency department.
Features: This book features almost all complaints from the rare, can't-miss emergencies to the common primary care type problems that frequently appear on the board exam. It pays specific attention to rapid recognition and management of these problems. The book is organized by system and then by problem in an outline format. Each problem is then divided into clinical features, diagnosis and differential, and then emergency department care and disposition. There are a few shortcomings. The first is that some of the pictures, especially the radiology pictures, are not of great quality. The second is that for several dermatologic and ophthalmic conditions, which require visual recognition, there are no images to accompany the clinical description. Finally, there are a few references to examination techniques like, "the Siedel's test," that do not explain what the test is or how to perform it.
Assessment: Overall, however, this is an excellent board review book. It is concise and manageable to tackle if one has limited time to devote to review. It can be used as a quick reference for practicing physicians, residents, and medical students in the clinical setting as well. It covers almost all of the possible scenarios routinely seen in the ED and commonly tested on the emergency medicine boards or in-service exam. The information is evidence based and provides page references to Tintinalli's Emergency Medicine, A Comprehensive Study Guide, 7th edition, Tintinalli et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2011), for more in-depth reading on a topic if required. This would certainly be a valuable addition to any emergency physician's board preparation materials.
