This clinical study aid was designed in the tradition of the First Aid series of books. It is formatted in the same way as the other books in the series; however, a stronger clinical emphasis was placed on its content. You will find that rather than simply preparing you for success on an exam, this resource will also help guide you in the clinical diagnosis and treatment of many of the problems seen by emergency physicians.
The content of the book is based on the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) and Society of Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM) recommendations for the Emergency Medicine curriculum for fourth-year medical students. It also contains information derived from the Core Curriculum, an outline developed by the Residency Review Committee, which details the information that EM residents are expected to learn and will ultimately be responsible for on their oral and written board exams. Each of the chapters contains the major topics central to the practice of EM and has been specifically designed for the medical student learning level. In addition, special chapters such as Diagnostics and Procedures have been included to emphasize the more clinical nature of EM.
The content of the text is organized in the format similar to other texts in the First Aid series. Topics are listed by bold headings, and the “meat” of the topic provides essential information. The outside margins contain mnemonics, diagrams, exam and ward tips, summary or warning statements, and other memory aids. Exam tips are marked by , ED tips by the symbol ,and typical scenarios by the symbol.
