The primary intent of this book is to serve as a study aid to improve performance on the EM Oral Board Exam. To achieve this goal the text is written in three formats: a topic review, a rapid-fire question/answer format, and actual practice cases. Emphasis has been placed on distilling true trivia and key facts that are easily overlooked, are quickly forgotten, and that somehow seem to be needed on board exams. The first third of the text is presented in a straightforward format with more basic facts. The second section consists of random pathophysiology, procedure, and treatment pearls. The questions are grouped into small clusters by topic presented in no particular order. The random Pearls section repeats much of the factual information contained in the Pearls Topics and builds on this foundation with greater emphasis on linking information and filling in gaps from the Pearls Topics. The final section of the text, Oral Boards Cases, is the most important, as it contains actual practice cases that should be used with your study partner to gain confidence and experience in attacking boards cases.

The SimWars Simulation Case Book: Emergency Medicine enables novice simulation operators to quickly and effectively run simulation cases, which have been established at national SimWars events, for their respective programs and departments. The use of simulation to gain and maintain skills in healthcare has become critical to the delivery of the curricula in medical schools, nursing schools, residency programs, and hospital-based practice. Specialty boards, such as the American Board of Anesthesiology, now require simulation training as part of the Maintenance of Certification. Studies have shown that one of the main barriers to implementing simulation is the lack of trained simulation instructors and instructor time. Developed by leading emergency medicine simulation experts, this definitive collection of 46 cases includes topics intended to supplement UME and GME training, meet ACGME core competency requirements, and challenge the expert emergency physician in critical decision-making, procedural skills, ethical issues, teamwork and communication skills.

"Emergency medicine is a broad discipline. There are many books covering all topics, providing on-line assistance and reference; there are preparatory books for the boards, both written and oral. There are even a few books intended as study tools for theinservice exam. However, almost exclusively, all these books are large and cumbersome. Emergency medicine doctors generally don't utilize big offices, and are often on the move. Unless something can be stuffed into a pocket, it gets tossed into a pile and forgotten. The goal of this book is to provide a concise study guide focused on the inservice exam, and which is small enough to be carried in a pocket"--Provided by publisher.
