I am an attending in a busy level 1 trauma center; This book is exactly what I was looking for. It is chock full of pearls and tidbits along with sound common sense advice. What was previously considered dogma is not necessarily so now. I look forward to reading a portion every day; this from an attending of 30 years who stopped any kind of regimented reading schedule after I recertified for the third time. This book is awesome and truly one of a kind. LT

q As my attention defect kicks in and I look at Tintinellil as a slow death and Rosen as a quick and merciful death, "avoiding common airs" has become my
study book of choice. Great topics, very short chapters, 100% clinical information, and a generous scattering of wisdom and insults that may serve in my arsenal the next shift I am playing games with less adaptive departments. These chapters are short, scary, and loaded with real world wisdom. There are plenty of snide remarks to reward the reader. I have recommended this book to Barns and Nobel for their E reader. I think the short chapters in this book lead themselves to the format of an e readers. I love this book and plan to read it many many times. Thank you to the authors for making it so readable and making the conclusions clear.

I appreciate the format of this book, with each chapter titled with the emergency medicine problem that has been the frequent cause of bad outcomes. Dense book, tons of info, yet to the point. I'm a FNP working in urgent care. In this setting there exists a temptation to clear pts without the appropriate work up. I am a huge fan of emergency bounce backs, and like that book, this one assists me in maintaining a high index of suspicion for the big baddies.

Despite its length, this is not a review book. What this is: a concise book full of tips to help you keep up-to-date with your practice. The chapters are concise and deal with individual, important topics. For instance, there is no detailed road map for handling septic shock, but rather how and why to choose specific pressors. Recommendations are evidence-based, well-referenced.
This book really challenges a lot of what we do by rote in the ED and a lot of old dogma.

Excellent book. Easily digested material on a broad variety of topics which can readily be applied on your next shift. I am currently a PGY III resident and have recommended this text to many colleagues.

This is the first time I have used one of the books in the Avoiding Common Errors series. Most of the topics discussed are relevant to the clinical emergency medicine. The questions that lead into each topic are very specific for example "post cholecystectomy pain". In general the topics were covered in sufficient detail to give a reader a decent amount of knowledge about a topic

It has a lot of great information of things to watch out for. I highly recommend it. But, I telling you this from a point of view of a nurse practitioner. A physician might see things differently-but I doubt it.
