If you feel uncomfortable with this, just search for the book directly at the book store of your choice. Forget Paper, download a kindle! I think this book is quite readable and probably the most authoritative of the texts. While it offers a historical perspective, it is actually not as comprehensive as Tintinalli on certain topics for instance compare the sickle cell anemia sections. Tintinalli's Emergency Medicine -Billed as a review book for the boards, this book is actually one of the more complete textbooks.

Critical Care Medicine: By John J. Marini, M. Wheeler, M. The practice of critical care medicine requires an understanding of the complex physiologic principles at the foundation of this practice and mastery of an ever-increasing body of basic and clinical science studies. The authors of Critical Care Medicine: Whenever possible, they base their discussion on the underlying pathophysiology—a practice that is increasingly rare in evidence-based medical texts. The text is the product of a two-author collaboration.
This approach contributes to uniformity in writing style and topic discussions. The current state of medical knowledge in the field of critical care is well-represented and landmark studies are incorporated into the text. The authors themselves are both international leaders in critical care and possess a deep insight into state-of-the-art practices.
The book is organized into two sections. The discussion covers the entire range of physiology and pathophysiology of the cardiovascular, pulmonary, and hematologic systems as well as acid-base and fluid and electrolyte disorders. The Essentials is already in its fourth edition. What are the essentials? The essentials are a mixture of sound physiology and ground knowledge on diseases and established therapies. Why should we read The Essentials?
All patients do not behave the same, therefore physicians have to decide patient management using clinical judgment based on clinical signs, on core physiology and on patient response to disease and interventions.
Most of the attractiveness of this book comes from the fact that it is written by clinicians for clinicians. It describes a lot of clinical signs, patho physiological patterns, X-ray aspects, and other small tricks that guide the physician to rapidly diagnose at the bedside what the patient may present or to better set up ventilatory support. This book is separated into two parts: The separation is sometimes artifactual, as mechanical ventilation has to be discussed as a technique but also for the management of ventilatory failure.
Nevertheless, this separation does not impede reading because there is no overlap and because this book is not a handbook.
Chapters have to be read cautiously, taking time to understand the details of physiological principles or the interaction between disease processes and interventions. We have copies in the ED at both sites. This textbook is the book you want to read through before your peds ED rotations.
It describes in exhaustive detail almost every procedure you will need to know in your career in EM. This might be one to actually download with your CME money. It is also available free through mdconsult, but lacking some of the photos. Just remember, it does not inspire all that much confidence when your moribund patient sees you reading the how to intubate chapter.
Diagrams instead of photos are a far more effective teaching tools.
Absolutely complete. So expensive, but so good; this is my recommended procedure text. Get through this one during your orientation month. You'll want to know the basics of intubation before your first ed shift.
It is one of the few procedures we do where you can't really take your time. The Airway Cam Guide to Intubation and Practical Emergency Airway Management -While Wall's text teaches the skills of airway management, this book teaches laryngoscopy and the skills of placing plastic between the cords.
