Congratulations on your purchase of Emergency Medicine Oral Board Review: Pearls of Wisdom. Originally designed as a study aid to improve performance on the EM Oral Board Exam, this book is full of useful information. First intended for EM specialists, we have learned that this unique format has also been useful to house officers and medical students in the ED. The primary intent of Emergency Medicine Oral Board Review is to serve as a study aid to improve performance on the EM Oral Board Exam. To achieve this goal, the text is written in three formats: a topic review, a rapid-fire question/answer format, and actual practice cases. Emphasis has been placed on distilling true trivia and key facts that are easily overlooked, are quickly forgotten, and that somehow seem to be needed on board exams. The first third of the text is presented in a straightforward format with more basic facts. The second section of the book consists of random pathophysiology, procedure, and treatment pearls with some questions selected from the Emergency Medicine Written Board Review: Pearls of Wisdom, sixth edition. The questions are grouped into small clusters by topic presented in no particular order. The Random Pearls section repeats much of the factual information contained in the Pearls Topics and builds on this foundation with greater emphasis on linking information and filling in gaps from the Pearls Topics.The final section of the text, Sample Cases, is the most important as it contains actual practice cases that should be used with your study partner to gain confidence and experience in attacking boards cases. Emergency Medicine Oral Board Review has limitations (directly proportional to those of the senior editor/authors!): We have found many conflicts among sources of information. Variation between the definition of “apneustic” breathing provided in Tintinalli vs. Stedman’s causes little consternation. Variations between half-life of paralyzing agents and of naloxone, or between rankings of stability of cervical spine fractures, provided in Tintinalli vs. Rosen are of more concern. We have tried to verify in other references the most accurate information. Some texts have internal discrepancies further confounding clarification of information. Emergency Medicine Oral Board Review risks accuracy by aggressively pruning complex concepts down to the simplest kernel—the dynamic knowledge base and clinical practice of emergency medicine is not like that! For the most part, the information taken as “correct” is that indicated in the texts Emergency Medicine, A Comprehensive Study Guide, edited by Tintinalli, Krome and Ruiz, and The Clinical Practice of Emergency Medicine, edited by Harwood-Nuss, Linden, Luten, Shepherd, and Wolfson.
