Emergency Medicine: Self Assessment and Review / Edition 4

A review and self-assessment tool for those who work in emergency medicine, EMERGENCY MEDICINE: SELF-ASSESSMENT AND REVIEW covers the core material essential to the practice of emergency medicine. Designed as an aide to those studying for the Emergency Medicine board exams, it accompanies the leading emergency reference by Rosen, EMERGENCY MEDICINE: CONCEPTS AND CLINICAL PRACTICE, 4/e. Roughly two-thirds of the approximately 1,790 questions simulate the board exam, and the remaining one-third of the questions cover clinical situations. It provides a thorough review of emergency medicine and also serves as a preparatory course for the American Board of Emergency Medicine certification exams.

* Provides more than 1700 multiple choice type questions with four to five answers from which to choose, simulating the approach used on the EM boards. * Provides referencing directly to chapters in Rosen: Emergency Medicine, ed. 4, with correct answers referenced to the appropriate pages in Rosen for an in-depth explanation; Rosen is the only comprehensive emergency text that has a self-assessment and review text linked to it. * Encompasses a broad core of material essential to understanding the pathophysiology and management of patients in the emergency department: General Concepts, Trauma, Environmental Disorders, Selected Pediatric Problems, Toxicologic Problems, Systemic Disorders, Behavioral and Societal Problems. * Can be used as a study guide and self-assessment tool for those who work in emergency medicine as well as a board preparation tool. * Reflects the current practice in emergency medicine and offers a more complete study guide for the emergency medicine boards.
