A Doody's Core Title ESSENTIAL PURCHASE for 2011!

"Collectively, they have once again produced an excellent text that manages to cover the broad scope of emergency medicine while remaining an easily readable and practical resource....Last, for the inevitable comparison of this current edition of Tintinalli's Emergency Medicine with other available emergency medicine textbooks available: in my opinion, Tintinalli’s still comes out on top. It is more concise and easier to read than some, yet it covers the breadth of emergency medicine practice more comprehensively than others. The bottom line is that I like this book. Just as previous editions did, the seventh presents all of the most pertinent and up-to-date information in a well-organized format that is comprehensive yet easy to read. That and many of the attractive new features in this current edition will ensure its place on my bookshelf for years to come."--JAMA

With 418 contributors representing over 120 medical centers around the world, Tintinalli’s Emergency Medicine is the most practical and clinically rigorous reference of its kind. It covers everything from prehospital care, disaster preparedness, and basic resuscitative techniques, to all the major diseases requiring emergency treatment, such as pulmonary emergencies, renal and GU disorders, and hemophilia. This authoritative, in-depth coverage makes this classic text indispensible not only in emergency departments, but also for residents and practitioners when studying or preparing for any exam they may face.

While continuing to provide the most current information for acute conditions, the Seventh Edition of Tintinalli’s Emergency Medicine has been substantially revised and updated to cover all of the conditions for which patients seek emergency department care in a concise and easy-to-read-manner.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle edition needs working index August 12, 2011
By aglass
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tintinalli's was a "go to" emergency medicine reference during my training years over a decade ago...

I purchased the 7th edition in it's Kindle form a month ago; and am happy with its content.

It is a formidable reference, over 2000 pages in its printed form. Such a vast reference really needs an index, especially if it is to be used at the point of care by an overworked clinician.

In electronic form, the index exists without hyperlinks or page location markers, making this reference unsearchable by this method.

I would give 5 stars if its index was hyperlinked, but for now I can't give it more than 3.

2.0 out of 5 stars Impossible to navigate February 14, 2013
By Brett
Format:Kindle Edition
The content is fantastic. This is a review about the Kindle version.

This ebook is impossible to navigate. At a reasonable text size on my iPad, the Table of Contents is spaced over 35 pages. There are spaces between each chapter heading and the authors' names for each chapter are listed in the Table of Contents. It takes a very long time to flick through the Table of Contents to find what you're looking for.

There is no indication of which section or chapter of the book you are in at the top of each page. It just has the authors' names and the title of the book. Not helpful.

A tight, concise Table of Contents and some references to whereabouts in the book a page is, would be fantastic. At the moment, an enormous amount of time is wasted trying to work out where you are.

3.0 out of 5 stars need a more functional TOF July 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a textbook and I usually need to quickly find out some of the contents. Thus,I need "search only in TOC" or a "shrinkable TOC". Besides, the tables in this Kindle edition come in low resolution.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poorly done eBook September 28, 2013
By B. Bahl
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The kindle eBook version of Tintinalli's is very very poorly setup and very difficult to use. Do NOT buy it for the following reasons.

1. Diagrams and tables are often far away from text. There is no way to click on the link to quickly view them and get back to the text.
2. Finding content is slow and tedious. If you want to read about hyperkalemia, be prepared to scroll through a large table of contents or worse do a search and wait for 5-6 minutes as it tries to find every iteration of hyperkalemia in the textbook. Basically, the search function is not intelligent.
3. Tables and figures are often small and become blurry when you click on them.
4. Content presentation is poor. They treat a medical textbook like they treat a fiction book. We read textbooks VERY differently than a fiction book. It is not a linear story line, there is a lot of going back and forth. The kindle is just not designed to handle that.
5. Highlights and notes are often not synced across devices.
6. Syncing to the furthest page read is an annoying feature. Instead of realizing that in a textbook you will read separate chapters at different times, it assumes a linear format and always asks if you want to sync to the further page read, this is an annoying feature and goes back to point #4.

Basically, do NOT buy eBooks on kindle in general, and especially NOT THIS ONE!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Reference May 1, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am a newly graduated Physician Assistant, currently in my first year of working in the Emergency room and have found this to be a great tool for reference and to continue learning.

I've found the information comprehensive enough, yet still concise so that I am able to get a basic understanding of conditions and how to treat them in the ED. I highly recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tintinalli's Emergency Medicine September 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The text itself if excellent, the definitive text on ED practice. However, there are some drawbacks to the etext. There are some tables and figures that are mislabeled. There is no link to the figures from the mention of them in the text. There are no page numbers and no indication of subtitles either in the Table of Contents or in the chapter headings.
