Emergency Department Resuscitation of the Critically Ill, 2nd Edition

 Critical Care, Emergency  Comments Off on Emergency Department Resuscitation of the Critically Ill, 2nd Edition
Feb 012019
 

“For those of us who want to ensure that we are up to date to guarantee clinical confidence, this book fills that need.” —Stephen C. Morris, Annals of Emergency Medicine

A CRASH COURSE IN CRITICAL CARE! STABILIZE, TREAT, AND SAVE YOUR SICKEST PATIENTS IN THE ED OR THE FIELD – WITH ACEP’S ULTIMATE RESUSCITATION GUIDE. PACKED WITH SUCCINCT EVIDENCE-BASED CHAPTERS WRITTEN BY THE NATION’S FOREMOST AUTHORITIES.

With an in-depth and up-to-date description of the unique presentation, differential diagnosis, and management of specific critical illness, this second edition emphasizes on ECMO, sepsis, neuro, critical care, pulmonary hypertension, crashing obese patient, and neonatal. Readers will also see the addition of many new flow diagrams and diagnostic and treatment algorithms.

The ability to manage critically ill patients is perhaps the defining skill of emergency physicians. Whether performing rapid sequence intubation, initiating and adjusting mechanical ventilation, titrating vasoactive medications, administering intravenous fluids, or initiating extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, emergency clinicians must be at their best in these high-octane scenarios, during which lives can be saved—or lost.

Emergency Department Resuscitation of the critically Ill focuses on caring for the sickest of the sick: the unstable patient with undifferentiated shock; the crashing ventilated patient; the decompensating patient with pulmonary hypertension or septic shock; the crashing obese patient; or the hypotensive patient with a left ventricular assist device. You’ll also find imperative information about managing pediatric and neonatal resuscitation, intracerebral hemorrhage, and the difficult emergency delivery.

What physiological possibilities must you consider immediately? What steps should you take now to save the patient’s life? The country’s foremost emergency medicine experts tell you everything you need to know to deliver rapid, efficient, and appropriate critical care. Quite simply, this book will help you SAVE lives.

Trauma Operative Procedures

 Critical Care  Comments Off on Trauma Operative Procedures
Jan 222019
 

Trauma has assumed a prominent role in contemporary medicine as an event that can significantly influence clinical variables such as morbidity, functional deficits and consequential disability, and mortality. Trauma is the principal cause of death in the population below 40 years of age in industrialized coun­ tries. Therefore, there is great interest in studying traumatic events from both the clinical and epidemiological viewpoints. The importance of trauma is exem­ plified by the fact that in many countries the trauma patient is first treated in specialized “trauma centers”, in which the diagnostic and treatment processes are facilitated by the 24-hour presence of personnel having interdisciplinary competencies. Trauma in this context consists of any acute, often unexpected, condition. Many of the medical difficulties associated with trauma occur in a relatively brief period that spans from the first call for help to the initiation of first aid measures. A correct approach depends on the availability of experienced personnel. The first measures of aid must guarantee, above all, the patient’s survival. The most critical, initial phases of care to trauma patients are represented by the triad: first aid, triage, and transport. Specific morbidity indices, whether anatomical, func­ tional or mixed, are indispensable elements for monitoring a patient’s clinical evolution. The immediate availability of “essential” drugs is imperative to con­ front the clinical situations that often present in the acute post-traumatic phase.
