I am a senior EM resident, and I have enjoyed reading this book. I love the visual prompts and the quick case presentations. The cases are comprised of both bread-and-butter Emergency Medicine and more rare conditions, and they are arranged in a seemingly-random fashion, much like patients on a shift. I like that each case discussion provides a 2-minute review of a relevant condition, and it is full of useful pearls and board-review material.

A couple of things that I would have liked to have seen done differently:

1) There are two cases per page with the answers and discussions on the next page. I find that trying to think through two cases simultaneously, although very realistic, is distracting when I am trying to learn the material.

2) The questions are very open-ended, and it can be hard to figure out what the authors were getting at with them. While I appreciate the opportunity to think through how I would manage a patient with minimal prompting, and while I think the format is very real-world, I often find that my approach to a question asked is different that that which the authors were getting at with the question. For example, "How should this patient be managed?" is so open-ended that I find myself thinking about vitals, ABCs, work-up, management, and disposition, which on the one hand is good, but on the other hand is probably a bit too expansive for a book like this which is a great compilation of rapid-fire cases. I would have loved to see some multiple-choice, board-style questions thrown in as well.

Overall, a great resource and one that I am finding very useful as I begin to review for boards.

I am a 2nd year EM resident, and I found this book well set up.

You are presented with a case vignette and a photo/xray/ECG and then simply turn the page to see the answer. A great review of 250 different cases. Lots of stuff is classic knowledge great for clinical use and the boards and there are certainly a few zebras thrown in for good measure. I think this would be an excellent, easy to read text for starting the intern year. The pictures are all high quality with very few exceptions (cases 82, 140, 206a).

I do wish that ECGs were given more real estate on the page. In the current version most images are around 4x5cm. I found these somewhat difficult to read. It would be nice to occasionally have summary tables / bullet points at the end of an important vignette, but then again, that is likely personal preference as tables are the way I learn best.

In all, I am happy with my purchase. Educational materials are only useful if you can get a resident or medical student to pick them up and read them. A book like this makes it easy. Picking it up and reading 5 cases a day is an achievable goal that anyone can accomplish. I think this book would be great for family medicine residents also.

As a second year EM resident I found this to be an excellent book to supplement other EM textbooks. Unlike the typical textbook, this book is case based and therefore much more interactive and enjoyable.

Each case is presented as an image (typically either a physical exam finding or radiology image) with relevant clinical information. On the back side of the page is the diagnosis along with a brief review of the key points in management.

The cases come from a wide variety of subject areas but tend to be highly relevant to EM. Since reading this book I have had multiple patient encounters where I remembered seeing the diagnosis in this book.

Overall this is a very easy read that contains a lot of high yield EM pearls

As an EM Residency graduate, I recently took my Emergency Medicine Written Boards and this is a combination of all my favorite study aides. It is a good review of important, clinically relevant topics that will be found on exams, at all levels. It is a current atlas with ultrasounds, EKGs and other features that are now being used on the computer exams. It is easy to read for self-study, or good for discussions in group review sessions as well. I like the Kindle version because of the portability and I can review a few pages at a time on my phone. The pictures show up well on my phone or on my computer. Highly recommended for those looking for a supplement to the larger texts.

As a senior resident in Emergency Medicine, I was looking for a review book for my final in-service exam, my EM boards, and my upcoming attending position. I downloaded this on my iPad with the Kindle app so that I could enjoy the color photos and EKG's included in the book. This is a well-written, easy to read, informative review book. It includes a wide variety of cases in random order with thorough but succinct explanations of diagnosis and treatments--all clinically relevant. Perfect for fulfilling that promise you made to yourself to read a little every day. Plus it won't make your eyes glaze over like the gigantic reference texts.

Overall, a great book for medical students, residents, NP/PA's, and attending physicians!
