One of the most challenging clinical settings any psychiatrist faces is in the area of psychiatric emergency services. Clinical Manual of Emergency Psychiatry is designed to help medical students, residents, and clinical faculty chart the appropriate course of treatment in a setting where an incorrect assessment can have life-and-death implications. Written collaboratively by faculty, residents, and students from various departments of psychiatry in the United States and Canada, Clinical Manual of Emergency Psychiatry covers those topics that are generally the most important and practical in any busy psychiatric emergency department. Equally important, the chapters are arranged by chief complaint rather than by psychiatric diagnosis, and each contains an important summary that can provide clarity quickly when seconds count. This format gives the trainee the ability to quickly find key points for managing the clinical situation. In addition, this text serves as a backup guide to faculty and combines the approach of accomplished psychiatry trainees with the views of senior practitioners in the field.

Emergency Triage (Paperback)

By (author): ALSG

The Manchester Triage System (MTS) is the most widely used triage system in the UK, Europe and Australia, with tens of millions of patients being processed through hospital emergency departments. It is also used in hospitals throughout Brazil.

Emergency Triage is the core text for the MTS, which utilises a risk averse system of prioritisation for patients in all unscheduled care settings.  As such, it is an essential text for all emergency department staff using the MTS, in particular triage nurses. The book is both a training tool and a reference for daily use in the Emergency Department and prehospital settings. 

This edition features revised protocols that reflect new approaches to prioritisation, with accompanying revised flowcharts -  the core part of the book.
