The leading textbook in Emergency Medicine now has expanded coverage with 308 chapters, new contributors and new editors. As an American College of Emergency Physicians/Mcgraw-Hill publication, the Study Guide is the defining source for clinical EM management and for those preparing for board or recertification exams. New 2-color figures have been added along with additional tables and algorithms. A new compact at last delivers stunning EM pictures in full color. Many sections have been completely revised including Toxicology (Herbals and Vitamins) and Pediatrics (Respiratory Distress) as well as brand new sections such as Nontraumatic Musculo-skeletal Disorders and Special Patients. Emergency Medicine is changing, but "Tintinalli" remains the authoritative diagnosis and management tool for all emergency conditions.
