The accreditation process for emergency medicine in the United States is considered one of the most difficult among all medical specialties, with residents required to pass both a written and oral examination to gain certification. This book allows the reader to apply a case-based interactive approach to studying for the oral board examination, while also providing an excellent introduction to the field. Featuring more than 100 cases derived from the Model of Clinical Practice of Emergency Medicine, with an emphasis on EKGs, CT scans, x-rays, and ultrasounds, this book is a model resource for the practicing emergency medicine resident. The reader can easily practice cases alone or with a partner and can follow up with key points of critical actions, clinical pearls, and references. The appendix is loaded with high-yield information on subjects emphasized in the oral board examination, such as pediatric, cardiovascular, traumatic, and toxicologic disorders. This book truly allows the reader to feel actively immersed in the case. Reviews: 'I believe that nothing will better familiarize the future examinee with this format than simulation and simulating this format as often as possible. In this regard, Okuda and Nelson's Emergency Medicine Oral Board Review Illustrated shines, by providing more than 100 cases for review. … The number and scope of cases is excellent.… When compared to Carol Rivers' Preparing for the Oral Board Exam in Emergency Medicine, perhaps the most popular review book in this field, Okuda and Nelson's book provides many more cases: 109 versus 18. In preparation for the oral board exam by simulation is you goal, I would definitely suggest this book; I know that I will be using it.'
