Ultimate Emergency Medicine Pocket Reference
An amazing amount of information in a compact format. This handbook
condenses the gold standard emergency medicine text (Tintinalli's

All the conditions you will encounter in the emergency room are
included. Pathophysiology, diagnosis, key points, clinical protocols
and management issues are covered such as:
Resuscitative Problems and Techniques
Analgesia, Anesthesia and Sedation
Emergency Wound Management
Renal and Genitourinary Disorders
Gynecology and Obstetrics
Hematologic and Oncologic Emergencies
Eye, Ear, Nose, Throat and Oral Emergencies
Disorders of the Skin
Fractures and Dislocations
Muscular, Ligamentous and Rheumatic Disorders
Abuse and Assault
...and that's just the main sections. This portable wealth of knowledge
not only will help one prepare for exams on emergency medicine it
serves as an excellent, comprehensive reference on the job.

not come close. Yes, the price is worth the information, you get what
you pay for and if you are doing emergency medicine, you've got to have
If you are going to carry a reference, why not carry the standard in the field?
