Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is an outstanding example of the application of basic science to medical practice, and the book is unique in the way that it links epidemiological statistics and clinical realities."

(Critical Care Medicine, July 2013)

"The book covers most of the common diagnostic problems seen in the ED and is recommended reading for all levels from junior doctors to departmental directors. Perhaps we could even encourage some of our in-patient colleagues to read it as well!"

(Life in the FastLane, 19 June 2013)

"Evidence-Based Emergency Care provides a rational, evidence-based approach to diagnostic testing. The recommendations are balanced with substantiating evidence yet always leave room for clinical judgment. One of the things I enjoyed most about this book was being able to examine actual sensitivities, specificities, and likelihood ratios of various decision instruments and diagnostic tests that I use daily."

"I've been keeping this text in my bag during shifts to pull out during relevant clinical situations and discuss with the residents.

(Annals of Emergency Medicine, Aug 2013)

"I recommend that everyone interested in knowing how to critically read the medical literature and apply EBM read this book."

(Journal of Emergency Medicine
, January 2014)




“One of the things I enjoyed most about this book was being able to examine actual sensitivities, specificities, and likelihood ratios of various decision instruments and diagnostic tests that I use daily. It was also  enlightening to learn several diagnostic strategies and decision instruments that I previously had not used.”  (Annals of Emergency Medicine, 1 August 2013)

“This is an excellent resource for clinicians seeking to provide evidence-based care in emergency medicine. It is a comprehensive and reliable resource that helps reach a balance between overuse and underuse of diagnostic testing. The information is presented in a concise format that can be used during clinical encounters or for more exhaustive reviews of the literature surrounding a clinical question. As evidence-based emergency medicine is a rapidly changing and advancing field, this updated edition is certainly justified.”  (Doody’s, 7 June 2013)

 

From the Back Cover

The ability to differentiate patients who need emergent treatment from those who do not is a vital skill in Emergency Medicine. Solid history-taking, a thorough physical examination, appropriate use of laboratory tests and imaging, and sound clinical judgement are all keys to making these decisions.However, determining which elements of the patient history, findings on the physical exam, and laboratory and imaging results to use can be challenging for emergency physicians and other providers in acute care settings. Evidence-Based Emergency Care: Diagnostic Testing and Clinical Decision Rules will equip you with the information you need to:
  • Interpret and draw practical conclusions from published studies
  • Understand both bottom-line conclusions and limitations of the various studies on diagnostic testing and clinical decision rules
  • Learn how to make the best decision for your patient based on up-to-date evidence
Part I provides an overview of the science of diagnostic testing, reviewing the process behind
the development of clinical decision rules and exploring the increasing pressures to improve the efficiency of diagnostic test utilization faced by emergency practitioners.
Subsequent chapters focus on practical questions that have been addressed through original research studies. The authors provide a review of the current literature on a specific question, an interpretation of the clinical question in the context of the literature (focusing on the actual data behind the studies being referenced) and, finally, how the evidence can be most appropriately applied to the care of emergency patients.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Ken on January 31, 2013
Format: Paperback
There is an overall theme to modern health care; over testing, over diagnosing and therefore, over treating. This can have negative consequences. No treatments are benign and the risks are not worth it if there are no benefits.

That is why the Choose Wisely campaign was started. But how do emergency physicians choose what tests to order? This excellent resource book provides that guidance. Using the BEST evidence available they are able to direct clinicians into choosing wisely. It helps you decide on what investigations to order and how to apply these tests within a clinical decision framework.

Before any new ER resident orders their first test they should be required to read this book.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By EMed MD on January 28, 2013
Format: Paperback
I really like this book, i was a fan of the 1st edition and now I am so exited to see the 2nd edition coming out. In the era of over utilization and sucking the medical system resources, this book comes to make it very practical and easy to use EBM on your daily practice of emergency medicine. I believe that it's well written, easy to read and interpret, and its size is compact and fits everywhere. Highly recommend.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a nice second edition of a good primer of EBM in EM. Pines, Carpenter, Raja and Schuur do a nice job of editing this book. Some of the chapters are a bit sparse (influenza) and need more info, but other chapters are very, very good. This will be a good addition to your library if you are in a teaching institution. EMB is the future and I encourage those who are not familiar with EBM to look at this book as a starting point for their journey. This is not a study guide for your boards though.

Format: Paperback
As we strive to deliver care that is evidence based, improves outcomes is patient-centric and efficient, this should be required reading for all emergency medicine practitioners. The format is easy to read and quick to the chase. Residents should put it under their pillows at night.

Format: Paperback
This book fills an important gap in the body of work about evidence based medicine in the ED, and is a comprehensive and well-written primer to the topic. It is a readable, practical guide that provides clear assistance for decision-making for any clinician in the ED. The second edition is an improvement on the first, with well-chosen new research and examples. This is an excellent book and should be on the shelf of all in the emergency medicine field.
