This is the 6th edition of the concise small text on emergency medicine, including the 2010 ALS guidelines.
Cadogan's influence on this text is obvious, as it is so logically structured, and easy to read. This book is designed to be carried, and is a must for any trainee in emergency medicine, as well as junior trainees who maybe rotating through the emergency department from other specialties.
It covers a wide range of emergency topics across the breadth and depth of the specialty, and does not lose the reader in long paragraphs of prose, rather it is succinct, practical, and easily accessible in the chaotic environment that is the emergency room. This is certainly not a "sit on your shelf at home" type of textbook, and I've been carrying it around at work over the last few days, testing it in various situations.
Extra resources are available on the excellent Life in The Fast Lane website, which is also run by Mike Cadogan.
It has been my pleasure to read, and happy to recommend this book to junior trainees in the ED.
