I personally liked the AAOS book better. The Brady book seemed to have different chapter written by different people, following different standards. For instance, the ranges for pediatric RR's and HR's differed in the Respiratory Emergency section to the Pediatric section.Emergency Care 11th edition
That's why I mentioned all have certain points they are stronger than others in and why I suggest having access to all of them. Even at times that silly Sidney sinus of AAOS can help complete a persons understanding of a subject.I can't see the Mosby book I read as being 9th or 10th grade. And certainly not at a lower level than Brady. Look through Mosby on how it explains ventilation/respiration. Compare it to Brady. With Mosby, I actually felt like I was learning physiology like a paramedic should. Brady reminded me of EMT in that section.
I still refer to my Brady all the time, but when I really want to get a topic, I break out Mosby.
That thing is nothing, you should try hoisting up my copy of "Nelson's pediatrics."Did I mention lifting the Brady Bible is a health hazard?
That thing weights a ton man ... obviously they want you to have the most realistic and relevant out there and get back blowout right?
