Book description

Now with updated ACLS algorithms An Introduction to Clinical Emergency Medicine is a much-needed resource for individuals practicing in this challenging field. It takes a novel approach, describing in detail the best and most current methods including initial patient evaluation, generation of differential diagnoses, problem-solving and management of challenging conditions based on presenting symptoms. Unlike other textbooks, in which the diagnosis is known, this textbook approaches clinical problems as clinicians approach patients - without full knowledge of the final diagnosis. It provides an understanding of how to approach patients with undifferentiated conditions, ask the right questions, gather historical data, utilize physical examination skills and order and interpret laboratory and radiographic tests. It provides current management and disposition strategies with controversies presented, including pearls and summary points for each topic covered. The book is multi-author, each contributor chosen because of a track record in teaching as well as being internationally recognised experts in the specialty.

Reviews

‘An Introduction to Clinical Emergency Medicine has something for everyone, at all levels, from student to senior. … The principal ‘added value‘ of the book is the symptoms-based, rather than diagnosis-based, approach. Patients are managed according to the severity of their presentation, often when the clinical ‘picture‘ is incomplete, so the focus is on clinical decision-making.‘

‘I rather liked this book. In particular the way the various topics were laid out giving advice on how to approach the patient. … This is a book that all Accident and Emergency trainees will be very pleased to own. I wish it had been available many years ago when I was a trainee working in the Accident and Emergency Department.‘

'It was direct, gave good advice and led the reader to pass on a well examined, well diagnosed and well treated patient to the next layer of the complex medical tree that is today's modern general hospital. This is a book that all Accident and Emergency trainees will be very pleased to own.'

'I have found this work an excellent introduction to emergency medicine, and [it] should be first reading for any new student interested in emergency medicine. Dr Mahadevan and Dr Garmel should be applauded for this work.'
