"Emergency medicine is a broad discipline. There are many books covering all topics, providing on-line assistance and reference; there are preparatory books for the boards, both written and oral. There are even a few books intended as study tools for theinservice exam. However, almost exclusively, all these books are large and cumbersome. Emergency medicine doctors generally don't utilize big offices, and are often on the move. Unless something can be stuffed into a pocket, it gets tossed into a pile and forgotten. The goal of this book is to provide a concise study guide focused on the inservice exam, and which is small enough to be carried in a pocket"--Provided by publisher.
