Emergency Medicine Oral Board Review Illustrated

Emergency Medicine Oral Board Review Illustrated

All right, this is only indirectly ultrasound – but Haru Okuda and Bret Nelson have published this great new book:
Emergency Medicine Oral Board Review Illustrated (Cambridge Clinical Guides)

The book features more than 100 cases derived from the Model of Clinical Practice of Emergency Medicine, with an emphasis on EKGs, CT scans, x-rays, and ultrasounds. Almost 300 illustrations complement the cases and highlight visual stimuli commonly encountered on the boards

There are chapters on approaching the oral board examination, pediatric pearls and pitfalls, common ED presentations and their management, procedure guidance, and hundreds of images to review.


“If preparation for the oral board exam by simulation is your goal, I would definitely suggest this book; I know that I will be using it.”
