Written by emergency medicine doctors who passed the exam, First Aid for the Emergency Medicine Boards provides proven study tactics for boosting your test score. Ideal for both initial and last-minute review, it's a concise yet comprehensive resource for time-strapped residents and practitioners. This complete review of all topics covered on the exam uses sample questions based on recently administered in-service and board exams to help you prepare thoroughly and efficiently. Subjects include major trauma, dermatologic emergencies, pediatrics, infectious emergencies, ethics, and many more. First Aid for the Emergency Medicine Boards includes nearly 125 clinical images and algorithms you'll need to be familiar with, along with important advice on scheduling study time, registering for the exam, and what to expect on the big day. In addition, you'll find mnemonics and visual aids to both reinforce the facts when studying and use as tools when you're taking the exam.
