The book Tintinalli’s Emergency Medicine is written by Judith Tintinalli, O. John Ma, Donald Yealy, Garth Meckler, J. Stapczynski, David Cline, and Stephen Thomas. This marks the 41st year of the publication of our textbook, which began as a compendium of “answers” to a massive set of questions developed by members of the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) and the American Board of Emergency Medicine. (ABEM) for the Board of Emergency Medicine Certification Exam. The first edition of ACEP was developed in 1978 as “The Study Guide”, and in 1985 it matured into the first of 34 years of McGraw-Hill editions. This ninth edition continues to expand in scope and depth we could not predict 41 years ago. We continue to provide clinically focused information for all emergency medicine students and professionals, from students and residents to emergency medicine physicians, advanced practice providers, emergency medical technicians, and paramedics. We believe that each subsequent edition demonstrates the vital contemporary role of emergency medical care for individual patients, as well as for the health of the public.
This is much more than an emergency medicine content book. It is the result of contributions over the years of more than 2,000 authors committed to the education and practice of emergency medicine. Special thanks to Howard Werman, MD, Professor of Emergency Medicine at The Ohio State University, James Niemann, MD, Professor of Emergency Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine, and Joseph Stephen Stapczynski, MD, Professor of Emergency Medicine at the University of Arizona – Phoenix, for being the only authors to have contributed to every issue of McGraw-Hill during its 41-year history!
