Essential Emergency Procedural Sedation and Pain Management (Essential Emergency Medicine Series)


Procedural sedation is commonly utilized in the emergency department (ED) for patients undergoing painful procedures.  It is a critical interprofessional skill set required to allow the delivery of painful procedures such as fracture reduction or electrical cardioversion. Essential Emergency Procedural Sedation and Pain Management is a unique interprofessional handbook designed for staff physicians, residents, nurses, professionals, and allied health workers. Although procedural sedation is commonly employed and recognized as a required skill set for emergency physicians, there are barriers to its effective implementation in the ED.  The biggest hurdles are the lack of appropriate education in the area, a paucity of interprofessional educational programs, and a lack of proper education from professional training bodies. This handbook is designed for the health care team and encompasses the philosophy of interprofessional education.  The developing faculty members of the course are from medical, nursing, pharmacy, and educational backgrounds. This is critical in the development of any educational endeavor as it provides a means for all members to participate and understand the process effectively and in a complementary fashion.

Essential Emergency Imaging (Essential Emergency Medicine)


By (author): Dr. Resa E. Lewiss M.D., Dr. Turandot Saul M.D., Kaushal H. Shah M.D. FACEP

Part of the Essential Emergency Medicine Series, this book offers emergency department staff a one-stop shop for information about all aspects of imaging.  With the demand for cost-effective treatment, and the plethora of imaging options, the emergency physician needs to know which test will provide the best information with the least impact on the patient.  The authors present information in a systematic, user-friendly approach.  Beginning with the suspected diagnosis, the clinician reviews a brief overview of the condition, usual findings, and possible lab tests. “Bedside Pearls” reflect usual findings; classic images with more pearls about the specific technique follow.  Each chapter ends with the advantages and disadvantages of the various imaging modalities.

The Stress Response of Critical Illness: Metabolic and Hormonal Aspects


This book demonstrates how the latest insights into the physiopathology of the stress response can be integrated into clinical practice. The topic is particularly relevant since the metabolic changes triggered by acute stress, including adaptive responses such as resistance to anabolic signals, have recently been more precisely delineated. The underlying mechanisms of these changes are also now better understood. The authors analyse how these advances could result in better management and more effective prevention of the long-term clinical consequences of the alterations occurring during the acute phase. An international panel of respected experts discusses these topics and describes the management of some common clinical conditions.
