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.

Emergencies in Critical Care (Flexibound)

By (author): Martin Beed, Richard Sherman, Ravi Mahajan

This essential handbook provides a practical, accessible guide to all emergency situations encountered in the critical care setting. Emergencies are very common in the critical care setting and this book helps critical care staff identify patients at risk, how to manage them, and be prepared. To help the reader find advice quickly, most chapters begin with a generic description of how to manage emergencies affecting that system, or patient group. This is followed by details of specific diagnoses and how they should be managed. The author team, where possible, follow the 'ABC' approach, which is not only the standard approach to emergency management, but also a widely-used scheme for documenting daily reviews on ICU, and for documenting trauma management.

This second edition covers new areas of importance, including sections on how to deal with adverse events and critical incidents involving critically ill patients, patient-safety and improved patient rescue packages, and on the practicalities of infection control procedures. Normal values have been combined in to one short chapter for easy reference.

Easy to use and evidence-based, this book will help all critical care staff involved with the management of emergencies, from the new junior doctor to the experienced consultant in a portable and easily-readable format.
