Product Description

Contains 1,500+ illustrations

A complete and trusted visual compendium of emergency medicine—extensively updated with 1500 full-color illustrations. Ideally suited to the bedside practice of emergency medicine, The Atlas of Emergency Medicine is the ultimate visual guide to the diagnosis and treatment of common and uncommon conditions encountered in the ER. Filled with 1500 crisp, clear full-color images, this essential clinical companion is logically organized by organ system and then by problem, making it a practical quick reference for medical students, residents in training, new graduates preparing for their certification exam, the practicing physician, and instructors. The third edition of The Atlas of Emergency Medicine features a more streamlined presentation with clear, concise text and an unmatched collection of diagnoses-speeding images. These images form the core of the book and are accompanied by brief, high-yield descriptions of clinical problems.
