Essential EM Spanish: Sample Materials

 On this page I’ll show you some samples of the learning tools you’ll use in Essential Emergency Medicine Spanish, including a video demo of the mobile app.

Hopefully this will give you a better idea of the look and feel of the course.  If you still have questions afterwards, feel free to check out the FAQ page or send me a message.

Video Lessons

In the video lessons, I walk you through the vocab for each chief complaint.  This sample video goes over review of systems for abdominal pain.  

As you’ll see, I say the phrases in both English and Spanish, giving you plenty of time to repeat the words out loud so you can practice.

There are over 80 videos similar to this one, which you can work through at your leisure.  

(If you’d rather NOT watch videos, you can learn the same vocab from audio lessons, cheat sheets, or the mobile app — see below.)

Audio Lessons

If you like listening to podcasts, the audio lessons may be right up your alley.  You can listen in your car, at the gym, or anywhere else

If you’d like to review (or preview) the vocab in the audio lessons, you can use the cheat sheets, course manual, or mobile app.  

This sample clip goes over anatomy terms related to chest pain.

The Mobile App

With the mobile app, you’ll have constant and convenient access to all the core vocab in Essential EM Spanish.  You can hear the pronunciation on demand, review at your leisure, or even use it at the bedside with a patient.

(Technically the “app” is a mobile-friendly website, but it looks and feels just like an app, so I usually call it an app.)

In this demo video you can see how the app works on a smartphone, tablet, or computer.  

Mobile App Demo:

In case you don’t have time to watch the demo video right now, here are a couple of screenshots from the mobile app.

(Keep in mind these screenshots are just a starting point, you could also scroll down to see additional categories or phrases.)

Cheat Sheets

You’ll also get “cheat sheets” for each chief complaint, where you can see the English and Spanish phrases side-by-side.  

Each cheat sheet is a single page (front and back).  It has all the vocab you need to go through a basic H&P in Spanish for the given chief complaint, and also explain your plan for testing and treatment.

The cheat sheets work well as a quick reference for review, or at the bedside with the patient.

(The sample below is just the front page.  The back side has the other history sections, physical exam, and testing/treatment.  And there’s a separate cheat sheet for disposition.)

Table of Contents (From the Course Manual)

If you’d like to know what else is in the Course Manual, here’s a screenshot of the Table of Contents.

(Almost every section listed there has an accompanying video and/or audio lesson, so you can use the learning method of your choice.)
