Organized for easy reference, this comprehensive, concise, and clinically focused text covers all aspects of emergency medicine. Chapters follow a consistent, structured format—clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, evaluation, management, and disposition with highlighted critical interventions and common pitfalls.

In this edition, the Pain and Pain Management section is now at the front of the book, since a large percentage of emergency department patients present with pain-related complaints. The Trauma section now follows the High-Risk Chief Complaint section. A new two-color design will help readers find critical elements of each chapter easily.

A companion Website will include the fully searchable text, more than 400 self-assessment questions with answers, and additional images and tables.
