Ditch Medicine : Advanced Field Procedures for Emergencies


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Hugh L Coffee

Whether it is a war zone or a civil disaster site, in today’s dangerous world, traumatic injuries are likely to occur in remote, often unsanitary locations. However, as a rule, modern emergency medicine-including mobile hospitals and rapid evacuation to established trauma centers-fails to reach injured patients in the field. It is in just such a scenario-where physicians are not found, patients transport is measured in days instead of minutes, resources are limited, and the environment is hostile-that the Pre-Hospital Care Provider (PHCP) is in his or her element.
Ditch Medicine covers advanced medical procedures in a field setting. Should the PHCP find himself on an isolated battlefield or in the middle of some form of civil disaster, his ability to employ the procedures covered in this book in a timely and competent manner can mean the difference between life and death. Through graphic photographs, professionally rendered illustrations, and case studies drawn from Central America, Southeast Asia, and Africa, Hugh L Coffee provides real-world lessons and step-by-step instructions for small would repair, care for the infected would, decompression and drainage of the chest, intravenous therapy, emergency airway procedures, treatment for anaphylactic shock, pain control, amputation, treatment of burns, and nutrition and emotional support.
Ditch medicine is a must for the well-prepared EMT, disaster-relief professional, medical worker, or anyone with an interest in practical field applications.

Doing Research in Emergency and Acute Care: Making Order Out of Chaos


By (author): Michael P. Wilson, Kama Z. Guluma, Stephen R. Hayden

A practical guide to understanding and navigating the unique challenges faced by physicians and other professionals who wish to undertake research in the ED or other acute care setting.

 Focusing on the hyper-acute and acute care environment and fulfilling two closely-related needs:

1) the need for even seasoned researchers to understand the specific logistics and issues of doing research in the ED; and 2) the need to educate clinically active physicians in research methodology.

This new text is not designed to be a complex, encyclopedic resource, but instead a concise, easy-to-read resource designed to convey key “need-to-know” information within a comprehensive framework. Aimed at the busy brain, either as a sit-down read or as a selectively-read reference guide to fill in knowledge gaps, chapters are short, compartmentalized, and are used strategically throughout the text in order to introduce and frame concepts. This format makes it easy – and even entertaining – for the research novice to integrate and absorb completely new (and typically dry) material. 

The textbook addresses aspects of feasibility, efficiency, ethics, statistics, safety, logistics, and collaboration in acute research. Overall, it grants access for the seasoned researcher seeking to learn about acute research to empathically integrate learning points into his or her knowledge base.

As the ED is the primary setting for hyper-acute and acute care, and therefore a prime site for related clinical trial recruitment and interventions, the book presents specific logistical research challenges that researchers from any discipline, including physicians, research nurse coordinators, study monitors, or industry partners, need to understand in order to succeed.

Emergency Triage: Telephone Triage and Advice (Advanced Life Support Group)


By (author): Advanced Life Support Group

Emergency Triage: Telephone Triage and Advice complements the highly successful Emergency Triage. The algorithms are rooted in the Manchester Triage System (MTS), which is used in hospitals around the world and which is acknowledged as an effective means of clinical prioritisation.

This telephone iteration of a triage system which prioritises millions of patients each year provides a robust, safe, evidence-based system for managing the clinical risk in patients who are at a distance from health care providers. The basic principles that drive the MTS remain, but this book addresses the specific difficulties of assessment by telephone. The possible triage outcomes are “face-to-face now”, “face-to-face soon” and “face-to-face later” together with a self-care option. Information and advice is suggested at every level. The advice ranges from life-saving interventions, which can be carried out until health care arrives, to self-care instructions.

Emergency Triage: Telephone Triage and Advice provides all the necessary information that telephone triage staff must have to hand as well as including examples of questions to be asked. It will be a valuable resource for staff working in emergency departments, health centres and telephone triage organisations. Furthermore hospitals that are already using Emergency Triage will benefit from being linked with a telephone triage system that follows the same protocols.

Optimizing Emergency Department Throughput: Operations Management Solutions for Health Care Decision Makers


By (author): John M. Shiver, David Eitel

Across the country ambulances are turned away from emergency departments (EDs) and patients are waiting hours and sometimes days to be admitted to a hospital room. Hospitals are finding it hard to get specialist physicians to come to treat emergency patients. Our EDs demand a new way of thinking. They are not at a tipping point; they are at a breaking point. Under current loads and trends they are going to begin to break and these breakdowns will be painful and ultimately dangerous to society.

Recognizing that the ideal in health care is presently beyond our immediate grasp, this book instead focuses on providing health care leaders with the tools they can employ to optimize the performance of EDs and thereby improve service to patients, employees, and communities.

Written by 20 of the most progressive and successful health care reformers in the country, the approaches described can be utilized to quantify improvements, enhance predictability of workflow, and improve staff scheduling. The data derived using these techniques can serve as powerful evidence in support of change. While a common discussion among ED professionals is the perception that many patients are not really emergency patients and could be treated in another setting at another time, that argument is not germane until we as a nation elect to reform the way we chose to deliver healthcare to the underserviced.

In the meantime this book provides invalauable information to help individual hospitals to retool their ED’s. It offers new approaches that think outside of the box for all stakeholders. It also provides the statistical evidence that administrators need to make their cases for changes and added resources. It will help you forecast the demand for services and give your center an approach that will allow the ED to become a source of income rather than one that continues to hemorrhage needed limited health care funding.

MEDICAL SCHOOL FOR EVERYONE EMERGENCY MEDICINEYou’re a doctor 11 hours into your shift, and you’ve just walked into a waiting area packed with patients. There’s an elderly man complaining of mild chest pain, a teenage girl whose arms are swollen with bee stings, and an ambulance that is bringing in two unresponsive kids from a car crash. What do you do next?

Welcome to a typical day on the job for doctors in emergency departments: the most intense department in any hospital, and home to the kind of split-second decision making, high-stress troubleshooting, and rapid medical detective work that can make the difference between a patient’s life and death.

Unlike scheduled doctor appointments, no one actually plans to end up in an emergency room. Few of us think about the nature of emergency medicine: the grueling training medical students endure; the insights into ailments, injuries, and illnesses doctors must always keep in the back of their minds; the preternatural skills required to ferret out clues a patient might have overlooked (or might not want to share).

By following emergency doctors as they deal with patients and make accurate diagnoses, you can:

Get the same on-the-ground, case-by-case learning experience that medical students get when going through their emergency department rotations.
Learn how medical emergencies ranging from allergic reactions to concussions to heart attacks are diagnosed and treated.
Be better able to communicate with doctors and nurses in the unfortunate event that you, or a family member or friend, ends up in the emergency department.
Learn basic preventive health measures that could keep you out of an emergency room yourself.

With Medical School for Everyone: Emergency Medicine, The Great Courses gives you the chance to experience for yourself the high-stakes drama, scientific detective work, and medical insights of life in an everyday emergency department. Presented by board-certified physician and popular educator Dr. Roy Benaroch of Emory University’s School of Medicine, these 24 lectures are a thrilling introduction to emergency medicine and the emergency department educational experiences of medical students around the world. As you shadow Dr. Benaroch on his shifts, and sometimes even venture off-site, you’ll encounter patients coming in with a variety of symptoms and complaints—some of which are easily diagnosed and treated, and some of which are more life-threatening than they first appear. By the end of this 24-lecture rotation, you’ll have a stronger knowledge of, and greater respect for, emergency medicine and the brave doctors who practice it.

Discover How Emergency Doctors Work

Every lecture of Medical School for Everyone: Emergency Medicine keeps you on your toes and brings you up close and personal with the common and uncommon medical emergencies that emergency doctors encounter throughout their careers. At the heart of each emergency case are powerful examples of:

how emergency doctors think on their feet;
how emergency doctors determine what’s really wrong with a patient;
how emergency doctors rule in, or out, certain diagnoses; and
how emergency doctors counsel patients and families on improving health.

Emergency medicine, according to Dr. Benaroch, is about helping patients and making difficult decisions with information that is often insufficient or equivocal. These lectures invite you to peer over his shoulder as he meets with patients:

A schoolteacher named Claire has recurring bouts of abdominal pain that reveal how emergency doctors use the “OLD CAAAR” mnemonic device to remember the specific questions that need to be asked every time they evaluate someone complaining of generalized pain.
Individuals of various ages illustrate symptoms of different chest pain complaints, including myocardial infarctions (the medical term for a heart attack), myocarditis (a disease of the heart muscle), and pneumothorax (when air appears between the lung and the chest wall).
A three-week-old child helps you understand how emergency doctors risk-stratify fevers in newborns, where every fever (even a brief one) could be the sign of a serious infection that a newborn cannot easily fight off.
Mrs. Donahue, an elderly woman with dementia, whose mysterious case highlights a maxim that Dr. Benaroch lives by: If you still don’t know what’s going on with a patient after taking their history, investigate the medications (many of which often have adverse side effects or negative interactions).

Experience Everyday Life in an Emergency Department

Dr. Benaroch’s lectures are filled with fascinating insights into the experiences of emergency department doctors. These insights will broaden your understanding of what it takes to save a human life, break down preconceived notions about how emergency medicine works, and strengthen your appreciation for what it takes to perform one of the most stressful jobs on the planet.

Some of the fascinating revelations that are uncovered include:

You don’t want to be someone who’s rushed through an emergency department without having to wait. The only way to get to the “front of the line” during triage is to be the sickest patient in the department—and to make sure no one sicker than you shows up while you’re being evaluated. Been waiting for hours to see a doctor? It’s a great sign you’re not in mortal danger.
Any time an emergency doctor encounters an unresponsive patient, the first thing he or she does is perform a rapid scan of the “ABCs”: assess the patient’s airway (and open it up if it’s closed), assess the patient’s breathing (and give rescue breaths if there’s no breathing), and check the patient’s blood circulation (and give chest compressions if there’s no heartbeat).
Snake bites, contrary to popular belief, should not be treated with the “cut and suck” method. By cutting up the wound and trying to suck out the poison, you’ll only increase tissue damage and further contaminate the wound. A better form of treatment is rinsing the snake bite under running water for several minutes.

Displaying masterful storytelling prowess, detailed medical knowledge, and personal experiences as a practicing physician, Dr. Benaroch makes these lectures a unique way for you to experience life in an emergency department—without having to visit one yourself. You’ll feel like you’ve donned the white coat and stepped into the well-worn shoes of an emergency doctor at the top of his or her game.

Whether he’s discussing how doctors treat patients with highly infectious diseases, how they determine when patients are suffering from a hidden trauma (like an eating disorder), or how they inform family members in the event of a patient’s death, Dr. Benaroch treats these and many other real-world scenarios with candor. Medical School for Everyone: Emergency Medicine reveals the everyday adventure, mystery, and fascination of emergency medicine, showing you why it’s one of the most exciting and rewarding branches of medicine to work in.
