    friends,

    I'm about to start my psych residency and my first rotation is in the medical ER. If you could recommend one book for me that (a) I can easily carry with me, (b) consult and reference frequently, and (c) use to read up on stuff when I'm not working ... what would you recommend?

    thanks

    Emergency Medicine Secrets to carry with you and if you read
    Emergency medicine Case files before you start or maybe early on I think you will get all you need for your intern ED month.

    If you have a computer at work, I would just "emedicine" whatever you are seeing. I find it is quick, easy to read, and very pertinent.

    I like UTD, but I often find it a bit verbose for my immediate needs. I'm an emedicine fan as well.

    Take care,
    Jeff
