Emergency Medicine is not divided into specific areas of practice. Emergency room visitors come in all shapes and sizes, at any time of day or night, with a wide range of maladies. Emergency physicians need to become experts in diverse areas of medicine and to be able to make quick and informed decisions about patient care. A cornerstone of emergency medicine training is the constant drilling and re-drilling of simulated cases and clinical scenarios. This book offers a unique yet underutilized strategy for learning: a case-based approach from real patients and actual events. Each case provides the opportunity for learning essential clinical concepts. Focused exclusively on the needs of in-training emergency physicians and nurses, the book covers more than 100 common and unusual cases in emergency medicine. The procedures have been class-tested by the Stanford/Kaiser Emergency Medicine Residency Program.

Editorial Reviews

"The greatest strength is the quality of the visuals integrated throughout the presentations. Numerous pictures, radiographs, and ECGs are presented and the quality is outstanding. The important finding of each visual is clear for the reader to see. I have never found this to be so consistently present in other texts. Often the visual aid is of such poor quality that even after the diagnosis is known, the finding cannot be seen. The presentations are strengthened by the visual content, and the best result is increased retention from the reader of the differential and correct diagnosis. In conclusion, a great case presentation book filled with useful information for students, residents, and even the most experienced clinician is finally available." --Annals of Emergency Medicine
