5-0 out of 5 stars i don't work a shift without this in arms length
I'm an er doc. I do not work a shift without this at my computer. It gets right to the point and doesn't beat around the bush and so works well for the ed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Reference
I am a Emergency Room Physician Assistant and I find that I use this book almost every day for reference. It has been well worth the money.Altho it is one of the less expensive texts I have run across. It is small and easy to carry around.Make sure to put your name on it or it will definitely grow legs and be adopted by someone else.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Book!
I used this book along with Peer 7.It was great for the AOBEM.The questions are a bit specific but the answers are what to really focus on.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for prepping for inservice exam
This book is definitely not sufficient for board preparation in emergency medicine, but it deserves five stars no matter what.Even though the title mentions the EM boards, I think EM residents or med students doing Emed rotations would gain the most by starting these problems WAY early in their training.It's a more entertaining way to learn material than reading through a textbook, and the authors do a *really nice* job explaining the answers to each question.

I've found several answer explanations to be quite high yield, b/c they usually have some discussion of why the wrong questions are wrong.Not only that, they sometimes will throw in extra "pearls" regarding the wrong answer.Example: A question about the correct treatment for otitis media explained the right answer of course.Then, even though antivirals is a wrong answer, the answer key discusses succinctly how herpes zoster presents clinically and that you would use antivirals for a herpes infection of the ear.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Review book
I think this is a perfect review book. The questions are challenging and a great study guide. There is nothing else like this to review EM literature. This book is fabulous!

3-0 out of 5 stars Decent
I did pass my boards, but not because of this book.I used the NEMBR online course. This book was decent, but I wouldn't rely in it 100% or even 50% to help you pass your boards.

4-0 out of 5 stars Thorough review, excellent practice for the boards
I used this book as a supplement along with the Carol Rivers series. There are plenty of questions that cover most of the components of the EM Model that are tested on the exam. Some of the questions are almost too specific or trivial at times, but the explanations provided for the answers offer the necessary review of the topics they are addressing. This book is not organized in a manner to allow it to be used as the sole study resource for the exam, but I would definitely recommend this as a question book to use in-between direct study of the topics covered on the boards. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Decent for Emergency Medicine 4th year medical school rotation
I used this book for my 4th year medical school ER rotation. I was looking for a book that could fit into my pocket, similar to "pocket medicine" for IM but had a broad amount of material covered that was easy to review. Those that liked pocket medicine will like this book too!

-Book has subjects listed as complaints with common findings, important history information, Physical exam findings, Lab findings and Management. Includes trauma and some critical care aspects.
-Topics can be reviewed very quickly after seeing a patient.
-It is better than pocket medicine, which is more for extensive work up of disease rather than ER management.
-Covers pediatrics
-includes a very extensive reference section for easy topic look up.

-Print is very small, around font size 6-8. It may strain the eyes for some.
-It is all black and white, with no pictures or figures, but does include various tables
-It does not cover common ER procedures like I&D, suturing ect...
-For what is is worth it is expensive being ~$50 new.
-The mini binder the book comes in does not have the book title printed on it. The image seen is a piece of paper that accompanies the book (you tape it on?). It just makes the book look like a date planner.

Overall I thought the book was good and a worth purchasing. Some other students used the tintinalli mini book, but it was much larger and cumbersome to place in your pocket. I think this book is great probably for medical student and intern/2nd year ER residents.

5-0 out of 5 stars on point
Im a PA and during my PA school I did a rotation in Trauma and Emergency Med at Mass Gen, where a lot of the writers of this book practice. I found that the information in this book was pretty much on point and provided a quick and general reference to a lot of the things you see in the ER. I studied this book and got all my pimp questions right!

5-0 out of 5 stars Organized by Chief Complaint
I purchased this book, and the ED loaned us the Tintinalli Manual.This book is great for quick references to help come up withthe best differential based on chief complaint.It is good for studying so you can focus on the most important issues with each major presentation.The Tintinalli is nice for reading to learn the info, but cannot be referenced as well while seeing patients.

4-0 out of 5 stars The best pocket reference for Emergency Medicine
This book gets it right! The chapters are arranged based on chief complaint, which is how problems present in the ER. Within each chapter, a list of disorders that are potentially fatal and serious are offered, as well as the investigations required and management for each one. Unlike the Sabatine internal medicine book, this one is not cluttered nor ugly. The layout is crisp and organized, and everything is easy to find - given that it is an ER book, it should be since time is of the essence!

However, this book is not perfect. The font is extremely small, like its internal medicine counterpart book. Furthermore, it does not have a great section on fractures and dislocations, particularly on their management.

Overall, I recommend this book to anyone who practices in the ER. From students to seasoned veterans, this book will be useful for just about anyone.

5-0 out of 5 stars Detailed, Advanced First Aid
I have recently read a few books on first responder type medical aid for wilderness scenarios ... and this is BY FAR the best.If you are looking for a book that goes well beyond even advanced first aid, and presents the material in a pratical way using common languge ... this book is it.There is a balance with books like this on either being too elementary (i.e. "dumbed-down") or being too academic (i.e. filled with technical jargon that goes over the head of most people), but this book is a great balance between the two.The author has a gift of explaining things in a very straight-forward fashion.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best guideout there. Period.
As a Wilderness EMT and wilderness medicine instructor, I often find myself asking myself questions or being asked questions that I wouldhave otherwise never conjured up. Needless to say, I wouldn't carry this "bible of the backcountry" with me everywhere I go while out enjoying mother nature's splendor, but it certainly has its own spot in my emergency medicine library collection! Well written, easy to follow and understand, and the graphics are clear and concise. A great resource for any Wilderness First Aider, WFR or even WEMT!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good how - to - book!
This book covers anything and everything that could happen. Very detailed. I would highly recommend this book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding advice for hikers and other outdoor adventurers
This new edition is a standard handbook for anyone participating in outdoor activities or eco-tourism. Dr. Auerbach is an emergency surgeon and authority in wilderness medicine. He maintains a superb website called "Outdoor Health" (link in the first Comment).

Dr. Auerbach offers advice on both minor and major injuries, from shark and snake bites to lightning strikes, wound care, blister management and procedures for a being stranded by a snowstorm in your car.

His prose is clear and careful, and he is a great believer in prevention as well as a great resource for emergency treatment of patients far from professional medical care. An example of his writing:

"One gives up very little (nothing, really) and gains everything by wearing a helmet in the appropriate circumstances. Freedom of choice is a selfish concept when one considers that the head-injured victim forces loved ones or society to provide care and the financial resources to manage the injury and rehabilitation, and sadly, support for the disabled person, who might have avoided most of the injury by wearing a helmet.

"There is no excuse for not wearing a helmet approved for high risk (for head injury) situations. It is no different than wearing a seat belt in a car or washing your hands before you eat. Prevention is the name of the game. Having cared for many people with devastating head injuries, most of which would have been trivial or absent if a helmet had been worn, I can only hope that we do what it takes to mandate helmet use in every reasonable situation for which they would be of benefit. That is a necessary and appropriate use of the law."

If you are only a weekend hiker like me, or take on more challenging pursuits, get to know Dr. Auerbach, either on his blog or better yet on this excellent guide.

"This is an excellent study aid, especially for visual learners....This atlas is perhaps the most comprehensive source of high quality emergency medicine images available....This book is outstanding.

3-0 out of 5 stars ok review
This review book was ok for reviewing some of the basics of the boards quickly and probably has most of what you need for the written boards.

However, there are quite a few tables missing information from the Kindle version that I bought to read on my ipod touch such as toxicology tables. Given the price charged for the e-version, this is not acceptable. Unless it is fixed, would not recommend buying the electronic version.

3-0 out of 5 stars I had high hopes...
This book is ok. At 900 pages, it is too big and superficial to fit any niche on the bookshelf for really useful books. I've gone back to reading the new Rosen's, EB Medicine articles and lots of practice questions. After finding some mistakes and important topics covered too lightly, it hasn't left my bottom shelf.

3-0 out of 5 stars Eh...not great
The other reviewer who mentioned this book simply regurgitating all of the common things you have already read about common emergency medicine problems was correct.It seems to rely more on "what everyone says" rather than pulling in any of the latest literature.This would perhaps be a good book for a medical student doing an emergency medicine clerkship as a quick reference about various topics.As an emergency medicine resident I find it too elementary, and reading the sections leaves me wanting more information even though I understand this is by its nature supposed to be a review book.I find that I rarely pull this off the shelf.

4-0 out of 5 stars Quick & Dirty Review for ABEM recert exam
For emergency physicians who desire a single, quick review for the ABEM board certification exam.930 pages of text - which take approximately 20 to 30 hours to review.

Extremely terse, well organized and easy to digest.A clinical vignette Q&A begins most sections.Decent images / radiographs.High yield pearls are highlighted in the margins.Surprisingly up to date - the classic answers are provided with newer evidence-based info in parenthesis.

Not for those who require a more in depth review, but for practicing EPs who only need a brush up on Leptospirosis, Foxglove, and the like, First Aid for the EM Boards is a reasonable approach.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not up to the level
I was super excited to get this book i even got it as a preorder
the book is fairly huge = almost 1000 pages , n of the biggest First aids in my library, however; the content is not high yield at all, just regurgitation of what you find on First Aid for Internal Med boards with snap shots from other first aids making a huge but useless ER Review

What is unique about the First Aid series is or I'd better say WAS concise rapid review with HY tips, now this is lost in their renewed editions.

for this book:
the content is fair with only the cardiovascular, environmental chapters and the legal issues chapter being above average
OBGYN ER, Pedia, Trauma and infectious = Below average , seriously

Overall acceptable but would not recommend it, since its a crossover between review and concise text but lacking the in depth of a text :)

It was delivered on time, as promised, and was a great new copy with fantastic packing materials and was brand new.The book is what it is, a freaking huge reference ER book.All in all a good buy.Thanks!

2-0 out of 5 stars A Distant Third...
If textbooks were judged by their weight, this one would be worth every penny of its purchase price.For better or worse, textbooks are judged by content and this one is lacking.The book itself is really a collection of articles on ER related topics from a variety of authors.The articles are repetitious, contain a lot of extraneous irrelevant information, and often conflict with one another.The antibiotic recommendations are hopelessly out of date.In general, a poorly written, poorly edited work which is a distant in the world of EM texts.Save your money.

I am very appreciative of all of the work that went into this book.It is superb in many ways.I owned the 4th edition and I see many, many improvements, not just that the book is being updated, but expanded and made better.HOWEVER, I have one relatively big complaint.There may be some who, at appropriate times, will read through this book cover to cover, or chapter by chapter - however, for many, many of us, the book is used as a reference source.HENCE the INDEX is a key component of the book.And here, the book loses a full star (or maybe two) - the index is simply not comprehensive.Two examples - "Ciguatera poisioning" - I looked under "ciguatera" under "fish" under "toxin" and under "food poisoning" - could not find it.I know it is in the book - there is a table that includes it as one of the sources of vomiting, but where is it?[I found the information I needed on the CDC website!!]Another example - "cecal volvulus" - looked under "volvulus" nothing.Under "cecum" - nothing."Bowel obstruction" - nope."Obstruction" nothing."Small bowel obstruction" - finally found a reference in the index, but ultimately cannot find anything on cecal volvulus.I suspect that there MUST be something about volvulus in the Pediatric section on GI emergencies, but it should not be this hard, and I am not looking for a reference solely to children anyway.These are just two examples - I could offer many more.So, my humble suggestion - please work on the Index!!Isn't there a program that can do this relatively automatically - and painlessly?Information is great - quick ready access to that information is even better!Maybe I should just Google it? ;) Also, I have noticed some really lame illustrations - they look like mimeographed copies of copies - really hard to believe, especially since most of the illustrations are very high quality.In general I would like to see more illustrations within the text, particularly radiographic findings.The Color Atlas is kind of a joke, but there are many other sources for this kind of material.

Excellent reference work, recognised in NZ as the standard. Found in every ED in this country. Very worthwhile purchasing my own copy, to have to refer to when I want.

For such a short book, this is surprisingly full of imformation. One of the best emergency medicine books I have ever seen. I would consider this a must have for any practicing EM specialist. This book covers a majority of the very high risk cases that we see. The best part is continual coverage of hazards in over reliance on so called "classic symptoms." Just the other day, I had a neurologist ask me why a did a CT angio of a guys chest to rule out dissection because clearly the patient did not have a Horner's syndrome on exam which he states is seen in "almost all" cases: I think I should order him a copy of this book.:)My group is going to order multiple copies to have for students and mid-levels as well. ...

Product Description
The accreditation process for emergency medicine in the United States is considered one of the most difficult among all medical specialties, with residents required to pass both a written and oral examination to gain certification. This book allows the reader to apply a case-based interactive approach to studying for the oral board examination, while also providing an excellent introduction to the field. Featuring more than 100 cases derived from the Model of Clinical Practice of Emergency Medicine, with an emphasis on EKGs, CT scans, x-rays, and ultrasounds, this book is a model resource for the practicing emergency medicine resident. The reader can easily practice cases alone or with a partner and can follow up with key points of critical actions, clinical pearls, and references. The appendix is loaded with high-yield information on subjects emphasized in the oral board examination, such as pediatric, cardiovascular, traumatic, and toxicologic disorders. This book truly allows the reader to feel actively immersed in the case. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Emergency Medicine Oral Board Review
Great book with a lot of cases, a great way to get experience and practice for the Oral Boards

5-0 out of 5 stars Recommended for oral board review
I would unequivocably recommend this book based on the number and strength of cases.

Well-organized and with 109 cases.(The cases are harder than those presented in a review course.)I appreciated the citing of "pearls" and critical actions.Interesting appendices, as well.

I did buy it via Kindle and was vaguely annoyed by picture quality and inability to quickly "flip" back and forth.

5-0 out of 5 stars extremely helpful test preparation
Just took the oral boards and found this book extremely helpful in my preparation. Studying with this book works great when you're together with fellow EM trainees, but it's also fine with non-EM folks or even for reviewing by yourself. Each case has an area where the critical actions are well defined, but also a nice summary of emergency disease management little pearls about each topic. If you go through this book, you'll be extremely prepared and a lot more comfortable about the real exam.

4-0 out of 5 stars Better than the other leading EM board review book
I studied with friends for the EM boards using both this book and another leading EM boards book, Emergency Medicine Oral Board Review: Pearls of Wisdom, and I felt that this book was far superior to the other, which advocates outdated information and has far fewer cases.(As an FYI, it seems that there are rumors that ABEM wants you to do non-evidence based things on the boards.Not true.)The other book supports that notion (ie -- you must hyperventilate all head trauma.Ugh.How 1992!).This one does not, and the authors actually reference the evidence for their conclusions at times.

This book has the most cases by far (> 100), but there are no triples.That is easily solved by, well, just having a friend give you three cases together.It is not a big deal at all.The cases are all classic EM, the kind of cases you should be practicing for the boards.No zebras, no off-the-wall scenarios, which is just like the real boards.

There is a small appendix of high yield information on peds, trauma, tox, procedures, and ACLS.Very useful.The appendix is smaller than in the other book, but it appeared to me to be more high-yield.

There are quite a few typos and a few factual medical errors, but they are mostly minor and/or obvious.Fairly typical for a first edition.

Good luck!

5-0 out of 5 stars Emergency Physician
Drs. Okuda and Nelson have done an excellent job in compiling this oral board review. This text is a unique one, in that it addresses key issues in preparing for the Emergency Medicine Oral Board Exam. It helps to organize your thought process, by going through > 100 classic cases. It also allows you to practice for the exam by going through cases with a colleague.

Having just taken the ABEM oral boards, I highly recommend this book. ... Read more

i love the format! its just-enough, in-depth-enough, quick-look, quick review, its just that its not really portable, and also will need a revised edition soon - and i'm the first to get one!

5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest ER Medicine book for the price
On a dollar for dollar basis this is the best ER text for practical use IN THE DEPARTMENT during a busy ER shift.The layout of the book, 1 diagnosis per 2 pages (every diagnosis fits nicely on the left and right hand pages of the opened text).It quickly highlights the presentation of illness with signs and symptoms, the necessary workup (labs, x-rays, additional studies) and recommended dispositions (admit vs discharge).It WILL NOT give you an in depth discussion of the disease process, you must make the diagnosis,but it rapidly allows you to get your essential workup started.

4-0 out of 5 stars good quick reference.
good quick reference book.layout is open and easy to read but lacking the details.needs to read up more like uptodate or emedicine.if you have a PDA, getting the pda version would be nicer than the book version as it is too big & heavy.

Must have for everyone family physician (ER docs probably don't need it) who starts working in an urgent care.

5-0 out of 5 stars A+
Great book for family med or urgent care. When I did some moonlighting for urgent care clinics, the long-term urgent care docs were amazed with this book. Well written. Would def buy again.

5-0 out of 5 stars urgent care resources
I'm just starting in urgent care and this has proven to be a great resource. It has many helpful tips not found in other sources. I highly recommend it--it's very practical!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Urgent Care/Family Med Reference!
Fantastic review with great illustrations & step by step management.I'm a family practice resident interested in urgent care as well and this book is fairly conclusive for both of those topics in terms of "walk-through-the-door" complaints.
Fantastic do's & don'ts for each syndrome/injury with Pt. instructions and background info on each in case you've forgotten anything from med school.
The only thing missing, I would say, is a template procedural consent form and some web links related to each topic that may be useful.However, I'm really stretching for something wrong.
Great book for any physician dealing with minor procedures!

5-0 out of 5 stars A must have for the ER/Urgent Care Provider
This book is a true gem! Buttaravoli has clearly presented his distillation of experience and research into the diagnosis and treatment of the most common minor emergencies encountered by primary care providers. I work as a PA in an Urgent Care/Occupational Medicine setting and find that I frequently refer to this book. I read it cover to cover, and it was a joy to read, being clearly written and very wellillustrated in short, problem-oriented chapters. It makes a great quick reference, as the organization is simple and to the point. For each problem there is a brief introduction describing the typical patient presentation, followed by a "What To Do" section, as well as a "What Not To Do" section. Further elaboration on pathophysiology and the basic science is offered at the end of each chapter for those who wish to explore further. It is very well indexed and includes helpful appendices on such topics as performing digital and oral nerve blocks, procedural sedation and analgesia, and rabies prophylaxis. I carry this book in my bag from clinic to clinic. Thank you Dr. Buttaravoli, your book is Highly Recommended! ... Read more

This book is a great guide for medical students who want to go into emergency medicine, it is short enough to read in a month but long enough to cover a lot.I recommend reading it before or during your fourth year emergency rotation and again between the end of fourth year and the beginning of your intern year.Carry it with you as a reference.

This book is well layed out and organized by disease process and symptoms, good to have on hand for quick reference (but don't leave it lying around the ER, it will disapear fast).
Easy read.I would recomend for med students/residents or ER nurses.

4-0 out of 5 stars very usefull, and nice to read
When I started work in an emergency department this book gave me many tips to solve some difficult cases. It is written in a way you can read it for few minutes in between patient visits in your night shift. The readability is high and you never get bored because it fixes every question in few lines (maximum 20 but mostly less than 10).
Obviously it is not really comprehensive, due to the small dimension and the question-response format; but it is sufficient also to study on it for examinations. It requires at least a basic understandig of medicine and it is not interesting for a lay person in many chapters. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent review
One of the few ED review books I've liked. I found the right amount of detail that suited me. Took me a fortnight to go through.
I reckon it would be a great review for non- ED docs during their ED rotations . Overall, Five Stars!

2-0 out of 5 stars Very useful, but...
I want to post a preliminary review - not because I don't have opinions about this book, but because I don't have the time to write an in depth one.I think it is great that this book exists as a means to prepare for EM exams.But it suffers GREATLY from a lack of editing and coherent organization.There are many, many, many errors (using Tintanelli #6 as reference).For example:

"Patients older than 40 years are unlikely to have rotator cuff tears."

I am not so sure about this, it doesn't make sense really.

Searching in the big T book, I find "Patients with rotator cuff tears are almost always older than 40 years of age: rotator cuff tears in the young are rare."!!!!!!

This can get very time consuming and confusing.Some chapters are written and organized quite well, others are nothing but a mess, with very poor organization - going back and forth arbitrarily between disease entities, adding something about the pregnant patient, back to the first disease, then to the second one, etc. etc.One example (not the worst) is the way HUS and HSP are presented.The chapter on stroke is organized very poorly, without a clear hierarchical (anatomic?) structure.I just don't find this a good way to put the picture together in my mind of a particular disease, gathering the relevant data and moving on.Also many diseases are spread throughout the book, piecemeal, with sometimes conflicting information.I think it would be much, much better to write conclusively about a disease entity in one place and one place only.I don't find it so helpful to have bits of Lyme disease spread around in infectious disease, neurology and non-traumatic musculoskeletal disorder chapters!Maybe that is just me.There are many, many simple mistakes ("peroneal" nerve, not "perineal") that make it seem like this book simply was not edited by someone who understood the material.Some of the chapters are excellent, as I mentioned, but many are very poorly organized with lots of filler, not particularly helpful or clear explanations and a lot left out.The two column, bulleted design, does not always work well, or, more often, is used poorly.There are other books that fill this niche - I would recommend looking at them before settling on this book simply because it has the standard color scheme on its cover. ;)

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for ConCert in EM
I used this review book to study for my recert exam (ConCert) on Nov 3'07.I went back to the book immediately after the exam and found ~95% or more of the answers to the questions that were on the exam.If you are worried about detail - use tintinalli (and take a year to prepare!)This review book does not get into great detail, but neither did the exam! Most info is upto date (except recommend cipro for GC and no mention of MRSA).If you give yourself 2 months, you can easily cover the 600+ pages.there are no questions and no pics/stimulus type items.I would highly recommend this review book for the recertifying exam, and have so to the other attendings in my ED.i don't think i would recommend this to residents.

5-0 out of 5 stars Emergency Medicine
Great book. Not just for emergency medicine but for medicine in general. I highly recommend this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Basic Clinical Knowledge.A great review
This read is not only sufficient for students and professionals alike, but remains as a solid material for review for any exam.It provides one with the basic clinical knowledge that is required of one who practices in an ED, or similar type of setting.The only pitfall is that there is limited detail regarding syndromes and illnesses.Still a great read and review.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best EM text for completeness
    This book is a great read compared to any other text out there for EM. It is long but the time invested in learning and reading it worth-while.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece in Emergency Medicine
    Here as before, the authors have brought Emergency Medicine to a new height.This book, like the last two editions, revamps the subject in a form that is readable, and to the point without the superfluous "fluff" seen in other books.

    It comes in two volumes (instead of the three like prior editions).On-line access is a definite plus when I am at work and can't haul around a big fat textbook.I can search for things on my computer.

    I totally recommend it.It is one of my 'must haves' in my armamentarium of EM.

    5-0 out of 5 stars down to 2 volumes..
    No complaints. I purchased the book not the CD.Pleased with online access, as internet is available everywhere. This is far better than Harwood and Nuss for completeness of content. So many of the chapters there have leave information out.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good and concise Emergency Medicine book
    Good book with all the basics, but a little bit smaller than I expected. The advanced cardiac life support pharmacotherapy summary information on the inside of the front and back covers is really useful.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Emergency medicine guidelines
    Wonderful reference to have on your desk if you work in the ER/Urgent care setting. Offers ideas on tests to order and treatment plans. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the most important texts in your office
    I am an attending physician in Emergency Medicine, and through residency and even today, I have used this reference more than any other.It is a must have for anyone in the field.It would be extremely helpful for anyone in primary care as well

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great resource for learning procedures
    This is an excellent book.As an ER resident, I have found this book to be invaluable in helping me to understand the procedures that I am trying to learn.This text also does more than just explain how to do the procedures; it also gives plenty of background on the underlying disease processes, the indications for the procedure, etc.
    I would also mention that, even though this text is geared toward ER...I think any physician who performs a wide variety of procedures from suturing to intubating to IV access to chest tubes may find this book to be quite useful.Would definitely recommend this book and refer to it quite often myself.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not only for the ED
    I've purchased every edition of this invaluable resource.I do work in a busy, high-acuity ED, but also consider this if you're a family doc in a rural area where you might be called upon to perform a life saving procedure that you haven't seen since residency. Now if they'd just publish a pocket PC edition.......

    4-0 out of 5 stars Complete but somewhat dated
    As an ER PA I find this large text full of many procedures useful in emergency medicine. However, by todays standards the B&W pictures and drawings are very dated. An alternative worth considering; with better pictures and detailed descriptions would be: Emergency Medicine Procedures by Eric Reichman and Robert Simon.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An amazing reference guide.
    This book lays out everything you need to know in a concise, easy to follow format.If only it wasnt so friggin gigantic. So whether you need to run to the office to brush up on a procedure you havent attempted since your second year of residency or you need something heavy to bash the hell out of a Ganglion cyst (please dont actually do that), this is a great tool. ...
