Despite the expanding use of electronic media in current medical education, The Atlas of Emergency Medicine remains an essential textbook for any clinician’s library. What makes The Atlas of Emergency Medicine so invaluable is its ability to comprehensively capture all of emergency medicine in a timeless way with high-quality figures, artwork, and videos.
Anyone who evaluates patients or who needs to see what a disease or clinical finding looks like will find the complete teacher in this atlas. Medical students, residents in training, educators, and clinicians will all greatly benefit from using this book. Although its primary audience are those of us in emergency medicine, the depth and breadth of the atlas will also be of significant value to residents and practicing physicians in other specialties, along with those in nursing, emergency medical services, and allied health. Anyone who wants to review the classic findings of a disease that might present to the emergency department or see subtle differences between two related entities will find them here.
This newest edition expands on its long-standing reputation as the definitive atlas in emergency care by adding chapters on mental health conditions and rheumatologic disorders and by expanding its presentation of microscopic findings and the analysis of body fluids, along with significantly increasing the number of high-quality videos, figures, and photographs. The Atlas of Emergency Medicine continues its long history of being the single most authoritative collection of clinical images, illustrations, ultrasounds, radiographs, and electrocardiograms encountered in the emergency department.
I view this book as indispensable in learning and practicing emergency medicine.
