Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ira J. Blumen, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This unique textbook provides the practicing emergency medicine physician with a practical approach to the use of emergency ultrasound.
Purpose: This book will provide the fundamental information and the necessary framework that will be essential to every emergency physician who will perform emergency bedside ultrasounds.
Audience: Practicing emergency physicians and residents in training are the intended audience.
Features: The book begins with an introduction to the basics of clinical ultrasound. It then addresses six major ultrasound uses that are important in the practice of emergency medicine: four acute life-threatening conditions (abdominal aortic aneurysm, traumatic hemoperitoneum, ectopic pregnancy, pericardial tamponade); and two other frequent and significant uses (acute gallbladder disease and obstructive uropathy).
Assessment: The clinical conditions that would benefit from emergency ultrasound are well presented and fairly easy to understand in this book. The chapters are well written, and the ultrasound reproductions are excellent. However, physicians inexperienced in this technique may find some of the pictures difficult to interpret. Many of the pictures have adequate labels and very good legends. Unfortunately, some ultrasound reproductions may be difficult to interpret and would benefit from more detailed explanations. Additional black-and-white illustrations would also be helpful. This book will be helpful to emergency medicine faculty and residents who will incorporate the use of ultrasound into their clinical practice. It will be useful in explaining the skill to do emergency ultrasounds and as a quick clinical guide to answer questions that may arise. However, hands-on experience will be essential to get full benefit of this text as a teaching/learning tool. This ultrasound book would be a beneficial reference in an emergency medicine library for anyone who will be exposed to the use of ultrasound in the emergency setting.
