A Day-by-Day Chronicle of the 2013-2016 Ebola Outbreak

 Emergency  Comments Off on A Day-by-Day Chronicle of the 2013-2016 Ebola Outbreak
Apr 152018
 

This powerful history describes the daily progression of the Ebola outbreak that swept across West Africa and struck Europe and America from December 2013 to June 2016. A case study on a massive scale, it follows the narratives of numerous patients as well as the journey of physicians and scientists from discovery to action and from tracking to containment. The unfolding story reveals ever-shifting complexities such as the varied paths the infection took from country to country, the multiple responses of community members, and the occurrence of flare-ups when the outbreak was seemingly over.
The book’s finely-documented present-tense reporting records key facts, events, and observations, including:

Routes of Ebola transmission, incubation, symptoms, short- and long-term effects on survivors
Early attempts to understand and contain the virus and curb practices contributing to its spread
Medical, governmental, and public responses, from local education programs to global efforts
Communication and conflict between healthcare workers and communities
Social and economic outcomes of Ebola in the affected nations
Ebola remains incurable, although a vaccine is now available. For members of the medical community, public health officials, medical historians, scholarly professionals, and interested laypeople, A Day-by-Day Chronicle of the 2013-2016 Ebola Outbreak makes starkly clear what we can learn from these events not only for future outbreaks of Ebola, but also for the emergence of as-yet unknown diseases.

Evidence-Based Emergency Imaging: Optimizing Diagnostic Imaging of Patients in the Emergency Care Setting

 Emergency, Radiology  Comments Off on Evidence-Based Emergency Imaging: Optimizing Diagnostic Imaging of Patients in the Emergency Care Setting
Mar 302018
 

This book presents evidence-based criteria to systematically assess the appropriate use of medical imaging in the emergency department and other acute care settings. ​Over the last decade, there have been profound changes in the diagnostic testing and work-up of patients presenting to the emergency department with emergent symptoms. One of the most far-reaching changes has been the increased availability, speed, and accuracy of imaging due, in part, to technical improvements in imaging modalities such as CT, MR, and PET. Although the use of high-end imaging has plateaued in general, increased utilization continues in the ED.
These patients are more acutely ill and there is additional pressure to make an accurate diagnosis as quickly as possible to facilitate prompt disposition or treatment. There is also strong evidence for the beneficial use of imaging in the emergency setting that results in improved patient outcomes. This book answers that need by providing protocols and guidelines for neuroradiological, cardiothoracic, abdominal and pelvic, musculoskeletal, and pediatric imaging are reviewed in terms of the available imaging modalities, diagnostic criteria, and treatment options. Distinguished by its unique focus on evidence-based emergency imaging in adults, children, and special populations, this book is a unique resource for radiologists, emergency medicine physicians, and physicians in other specialties who need to be informed about the most appropriate uses of diagnostic imaging in the emergency care setting.
