The idea when we started was to collect the core Emergency Medicine
information and present it in an abbreviated, succinct manner, useful to
housestaff and medical students. As we progressed it became obvious that

came up with this. We hope you find it useful.

Many people who today choose herbal products in lieu of
prescription medications assume that because these products
are natural, they must be safe, even when the evidence for this
assertion is essentially anecdotal. Recent studies have shown
that herbals are highly variable in quality and composition,
with many marketed products containing little of the intended
ingredients and containing unintended contaminants, such as
heavy metals and prescription drugs. A few herbals are banned
outright in several countries.
