Overview

Improve your skills in visual diagnosis Speed and accuracy of diagnosis is the key to saving lives in emergency and critical care medicine. Careful visual inspection of the patient, the data (radiography, electrocardiogram), and related clues can often help providers choose the right diagnosis and ultimately the best treatment — but this knowledge comes with experience. This book provides 110 randomly presented visual diagnosis cases for self-testing, imitating real-life situations found in the emergency department setting. Written by distinguished emergency and critical care physicians, and thoroughly revised and updated throughout, this second edition includes 25% new cases and is an ideal aid for trainees preparing for Board examinations as well as an invaluable 'refresher' for qualified emergency and critical care providers.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Image quality, a critical aspect of a work of this type, and succinct but clear presentations, make this book successful.”  (Doody’s, 27 April 2012)

"These discrepancies detract only slightly from the overall quality of the book, however, and it can be recommended for purchase by any ED library." (Emergency Nurse, 1 December 2011)

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is the second edition of a book featuring imaging and clinical photographs of common conditions and complications seen in the emergency department.
Purpose: Cases, images, and therapeutic information are combined in a package intended to simulate a clinical encounter.
Audience: Teachers and students of acute inpatient and outpatient medicine are an appropriate audience for this work featuring emergency department practitioners located throughout the United States.
Features: The book details 110 cases reflecting emergency department, outpatient clinic, or inpatient emergent problems. Each case begins with a brief clinical presentation of one or more paragraphs, diagnostic imaging, either radiographic or photographic, and a clinical question related to diagnosis or therapy. Neurologic, traumatic, infectious, and metabolic problems are covered. Particular emphasis is placed on identification of skin conditions. The cases with imaging and questions are presented in the first half of the book, while the second half provides follow-up images, if appropriate, and a summary of diagnostic considerations and clinical therapy answering the question, along with one to five key references. Most references come from primary literature and date to within 10 years of publication. Good quality plain radiographs, CT scans, and photographs are appropriately selected to complement the clinical vignettes. The table of contents is organized by the presenting complaint of the patient rather than specific topics. A brief subject index of four pages provides good access to content.
Assessment: The focus of this book is largely on problems seen in the clinic and the emergency department. Case presentations are effective, but their organization is difficult to understand given the layout of the table of contents. This could be improved if the presentations were organized by topic both in the table of contents and in the book. Image quality, a critical aspect of a work of this type, and succinct but clear presentations, make this book successful.
