Written by residents and interns at Washington University, this small pocket book contains all the essentials that every intern needs to know from day 1 on the wards. It presents practical, must-have information, from the front lines of the wards, in an easy-to-use, quick-reference format. The book brings together, in one condensed source, all the most important pearls from other manuals--including ACLS algorithms, useful formulas, patient notes, top ten workups, common calls/complaints, and key points on the most common problems. Content includes vital pointers on what not to miss, when to refer/call for help, triage, cross-covering, and tricks of the trade.
