Atlas of Emergency Medicine
The Atlas of Emergency Medicine is an excellent reference for paramedics and EMTs. Full of color photos identifying femur fractures, lymphangitis, digital clubbing, and scarlet fever, the book is divided between "Regional Anatomy" (covering facial trauma, chest and abdominal conditions, extremity trauma, and the like) and "Specialty Areas" (with pediatric and environmental conditions, child abuse, and microscopic findings). With glistening photos of conditions such as sublingual ranula and suppurative parotidsialoadenitis plus pictures distinguishing between dry, wet, and gas gangrene, the atlas is an emergency room necessity that has addictive appeal for nonprofessionals with strong stomachs.
