"Minor Emergencies follows a simple format in the form of a brief introduction to a topic, bulleted points on things the physician should do (and things the physician should not do), and a concluding evidence-based discussion. Most chapters are brief and heavily illustrated with helpful figures. One of the best features of this book is the associated videos that can be accessed using a Quick Response scanner from a mobile device. A list at the beginning of the book contains all the video Quick Response codes in order, and a quick mobile device scan brings up a 2-3 minute video of specific techniques or procedures. These can be easily accessed on a clinical shift just before starting a procedure.
There are multiple techniques, photographs, and videos in each chapter to ensure that the practitioner will find something that works. I particularly enjoyed the chapter on removal of fishhooks because it contains several videos to illustrate the appropriate techniques.
Overall, Minor Emergencies makes a fantastic companion for any emergency department shift. It will offer something for even the most experienced physician and is a great resource for medical students or residents just starting their career in emergency medicine."
-Peter Moffett, MD, Annals of Emergency Medicine, July 2013
"Distills literally decades of experience by the author into concisely written guides to almost two hundred minor complaints." ― Journal of Emergency Medicine, review of the first edition
"This is an excellent resource to have in an office, urgent care setting, or emergency department. There are few other books that simplify the approach to these minor emergencies and provide short, to-the-point instructional guidance. Shortening the title to Minor Emergencies also conveys better what the book covers. Overall, it will help readers remember the steps to take with the plethora of minor emergencies they see on a regular basis and refresh their memory about treatment of minor emergencies they don't often see."- Russell Stroud, MSN, BSN, ACNP-BC (University of Arkansas) 3 star Doody rating!
