Emergency Medicine is not divided into specific areas of practice. Emergency room visitors come in all shapes and sizes, at any time of day or night, with a wide range of maladies. Emergency physicians need to become experts in diverse areas of medicine and to be able to make quick and informed decisions about patient care. A cornerstone of emergency medicine training is the constant drilling and re-drilling of simulated cases and clinical scenarios. This book offers a unique yet underutilized strategy for learning: a case-based approach from real patients and actual events. Each case provides the opportunity for learning essential clinical concepts. Focused exclusively on the needs of in-training emergency physicians and nurses, the book covers more than 100 common and unusual cases in emergency medicine. The procedures have been class-tested by the Stanford/Kaiser Emergency Medicine Residency Program.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'[The] Clinical Emergency Medicine Casebook offers a unique strategy for learning a case-based approach. ... The cases are complemented by stunning color photographs, beautiful radiology and electrocardiology images and detailed illustrations.' Stanford Lane Library Online
'... in recent years, traditional teachings have been challenged, and medical education is slowly evolving from a shell of spoon-fed information to an open buffet of problem-based learning. As this new method of instruction is adopted, the format of textbooks is changing. This could not be more beautifully illustrated than in Levis and Garmel's Clinical Emergency Medicine Casebook. ... [It] is an ideal text for students of emergency medicine both young and old.' Journal of the American Medical Association
'Well written, thought-provoking and educational.' Biowww.net
'This book will be an excellent adjunct for medical students on an emergency medicine rotation, and a great review for residents and practising clinicians. It will also be interesting to physicians in other specialties who would like to experience the analysis and treatment of acute presentations and management, which they may not see commonly in their practices except as consultants.' Permanente Journal
'... a pleasure to read ... would [recommend] it to anyone who is looking for a different approach from the usual didactic medical books ...' lifeinthefastlane.com
'The amount of information included in this relatively short volume is astonishing. ... the included images are a significant enhancement to the cases, and the overall quality of the book is outstanding. ... a high-quality learning tool. ... While the cases may be most appropriate for medical students or resident physicians training or rotating in EM, the wealth of clinical information and excellent discussions make this a good reference for practising emergency physicians, as well as any other students or practitioners caring for emergency or urgent care patients. Given the relative paucity of true case-based learning references geared specifically for emergency physicians, this book truly fills an important void in the EM literature. It has all of the key ingredients for successful integration in any learning or study program and should be a sought-after reference for years to come.' Academic Emergency Medicine
'The cases are taken from clinical practice ... The patients seem real and the presentations are easy to read ... The text provides a very enjoyable exercise of attempting to diagnose each case correctly ... the variety is unlike that of other case presentation textbooks that so often focus of only unique pathology ... the greatest strength is the quality of the visuals integrated throughout the presentations ... I have never found this to be so consistently present in other texts ... In conclusion, a great case presentation book filled with useful information for students, residents, and even the most experienced clinician is finally available.' Annals of Emergency Medicine
