    I'm currently doing an ER rotation and am wondering what books would be useful for the rotation during family medicine residency and MS IV year. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! :)

    Taking an Away team....
    " minor emergencies:splinters to fractures" - buttaravoli

    "emergency medicine secrets"

    if you are really interested in em and want to shell out 175 bucks or so the standard text is :
    "emergency medicine, a comprehensive study guide" tintinalli et al

    there is a pocket guide version of the above text for around 50 bucks called
    "the emergency medicine manual" by o.john ma et al

    I own both but carry the manual and leave the big one at home.....

    if you are really on the unlimited budget plan I highly recommend
    " the radiology of emergency medicine" by harris. also around 150 bucks. shows all acute fxs, dislocations, normal variations in peds and adults, etc that you will see in the e.d.
