Make Critical Decisions the cornerstone of your lifelong learning plan!

In EVERY monthly issue you'll find the following features, developed for your practice needs:

  • Two case-based clinical lessons focused on topics chosen from the "EM Model"—to keep you abreast of changing technology, emerging disease trends, new pharmaceuticals, and the myriad other facets of emergency medicine practice.
  • "The LLSA Literature Review." Synopses of the articles from ABEM's yearly LLSA reading lists. Each summary features bulleted highlights of the articles to help you focus your continuous learning efforts.
  • "The Critical ECG." An ECG illustrating a challenging condition is presented along with a discussion of the subtleties of its interpretation.
  • "The Critical Image." An image (CT, radiograph, etc.) is provided along with a discussion of the visual clues leading to the correct diagnosis.
  • "The Drug Box." A concise review of indications, dosage, and contraindication for commonly used medications.
  • Online testing and the opportunity to earn 5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ per issue, 5 ACEP Category I credits, and 5 AOA Category 2-B credits. (That's 60 credits per 1-year subscription—at no extra charge!)
