-Completely revised and rewritten by many new authors, as well as returning authors who bring a fresh perspective to new subjects.
-New key points at the end of each chapter present must-know information in an easy-access, bulleted format.
-Ideal for emergency medicine physicians, residents, and attendings; emergency nurse practitioners, PAs who practice in the ED, and primary care physicians in urgent care centers.
