About this item
Mahadevan and Garmel (surgery and emergency medicine, Stanford U.) present medical students and residents, practicing emergency physicians, faculty, and other healthcare providers with an approach to patient evaluation, management, and problem solving in the emergency department based on the patient's chief complaint, rather than known diagnoses. Contributed by emergency and other physicians, educators, and researchers from the US and Australia, the 51 chapters also cover principles of emergency medicine, including shock, airway management, traumatic injuries, emergency medical services, and pain management, and unique issues such as child abuse, elder abuse, and intimate partner violence; environmental emergencies; ethical, legal, and end-of-life issues; patient safety; and occupational exposures. This edition has been revised and updated to include current advanced life support guidelines and new chapters on sepsis, bleeding, burns, patient safety, and alcohol-related and dental emergencies. It adds sections on clinical decision rules and focused emergency ultrasound, updates sections on common emergency procedures and interpretation of emergency laboratory studies, and adds a section on red flag warning signs for concerning diagnoses in each chapter.
