Fully up to date with recent research and practice, including the most recent AHA guidelines, this model resource for the practising emergency medicine resident allows for a case-based interactive approach to studying for the oral boards examination, while also providing an excellent introduction to the field. Featuring 126 cases derived from the Model of Clinical Practice of Emergency Medicine, with an emphasis on EKGs, CT scans, x-rays and ultrasounds, it now includes diagnoses such as nursemaid?s elbow, multiple sepsis cases, the suicidal patient, and Cushing?s syndrome, as well as a chapter on the scoring of Oral Boards. Practising alone or with a partner, the reader can review critical actions and key clinical pearls for each case. The appendices contain high-yield information on subjects emphasised in the oral board examination, such as pediatric, cardiovascular, traumatic, and toxicological disorders. This book truly allows the reader to feel actively immersed in the case.
