"Not through the book yet, but the topics we've covered so far seem obvious and critical to the line of work of anyone working in an ER or as an EMT."

excellent learning tool March 20, 2011
This book is a great textbook of emergency medicine, and I've chosen it over others simply because it's comprehensive without the useless drivel. Each section includes the necessary anatomy and pathophysiological considerations for the respective disorders. This is a very readable text that distills the essential clinical information that you will need on your EM rotation. It is well cross referenced and gives an excellent intro to the material.
