EL CAJON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--My PocketGuru™ of El Cajon, CA, a publisher of pocket quick reference guides, announced today the launch of its first pocket quick reference guide—the Emergency Pocket Reference Guide for Healthcare Providers, NPs, PAs, & other Medical Professionals, which is the first in its medical quick reference series of pocket reference guides.
Written by authors Sheila Sanning Shea, RN, MSN, ANP, CEN, and K. Sue Hoyt, PhD, RN, FNP-BC, CEN, FAEN, FAANP, FAAN, the guide is the result of two decades of the authors’ experience working as emergency nurse practitioners. It is the first medical quick reference guide developed for emergency care and is the first of its kind with the added tool of medical decision making support, which offers healthcare providers valuable insight when determining the correct diagnosis for a particular patient complaint or injury.
Originally developed for nurse practitioners and physicians’ assistants, the easy-to-use guide is the essential tool for all types of healthcare providers and medical professionals providing a comprehensive “head-to-toe” analysis of frequently encountered patient complaints and injuries arranged in a user-friendly format, which is useful in both emergency and primary care settings.

“Although we had many excellent medical reference textbooks, we identified the need for a ‘quick reference’ guide that had an easy-to-use framework for the most commonly encountered problems seen in the emergency, medical screening, fast-track, and/or primary care setting,” said authors, Shea and Hoyt.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the healthcare industry is the fastest growing industry in the U.S. employing more than 18 million workers.
“I really enjoy and use the ‘Emergency Pocket Reference Guide’ in my practice as an ER NP,” said Annie G., MSN, RN, FNP-BC, CEN. “Thank you for a truly practical, easy to read, and extremely helpful guide. The Medical Decision Making (MDM/DDx) section has been a key piece in successful treatment and documentation of my patients. Thank you so much, and it also fits in my pocket!”
