Originally a privately-published book intended to serve the needs of a single hospital, the Detroit Receiving Hospital Emergency Medicine Handbook has been an overwhelming success. The book's first edition appeared in 1990 and sold almost entirely through word of mouth. The 5th Edition of the Detroit Receiving Hospital Emergency Medicine Handbook is thoroughly revised and updated, containing the latest treatment protocols, drug dosing guidelines, diagnostic aids, and more.
