Reviews


"One of the things I enjoyed most about this book was being able to examine actual sensitivities, specificities, and likelihood ratios of various decision instruments and diagnostic tests that I use daily. It was also  enlightening to learn several diagnostic strategies and decision instruments that I previously had not used."  (Annals of Emergency Medicine, 1 August 2013)

"This is an excellent resource for clinicians seeking to provide evidence-based care in emergency medicine. It is a comprehensive and reliable resource that helps reach a balance between overuse and underuse of diagnostic testing. The information is presented in a concise format that can be used during clinical encounters or for more exhaustive reviews of the literature surrounding a clinical question. As evidence-based emergency medicine is a rapidly changing and advancing field, this updated edition is certainly justified."  (Doody's, 7 June 2013)
