    Is there a conveneint book of algorithms/flow charts regarding the workup/treatment of different scenarios you see in the ED?

    Flow charts are the best way to learn in my opinion and they def helped more than some of the dense crap Ive had to read lately. thanks people. :D

    Rosen's has a few chapters dedicated to this. (i.e., AMS, fever, etc.)

    5min consult, although not organized in chart format and a little superficial.

    Lange's Current Emergency Medicine Diagnosis & Management by Stone.

    I'm a little biased since he's my chair but its a very concise text that outlines what your workup should entail and has a section on dispo with each topic.

    Take care,
    Jeff

    I've got the most recent edition of the Lange ER Current and I've found it pretty useful. It's well organized and having the section on dispo is handy.

    By the way: erpocketbooks.com has a "quick essentials" book. It's more or less a bare bones outline but it has good information and is portable. Costs quite a bit less than PDA programs.
