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

 Emergency  Comments Off on Doing Research in Emergency and Acute Care : Making Order Out of Chaos
Feb 192020
 

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 emphatically 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.

Operative Techniques and Recent Advances in Acute Care and Emergency Surgery

 Emergency, Surgery  Comments Off on Operative Techniques and Recent Advances in Acute Care and Emergency Surgery
Jan 262020
 

The aim of this book is to identify and shed new light on the main surgical practices involved in acute care and trauma surgery. Adopting an evidence-based approach, a multidisciplinary team of surgeons and intensivists illustrate basic and advanced operative techniques, accompanied by a comprehensive and updated reference collection. Emerging surgical procedures in Acute Care Surgery are also explored step by step with the help of ample illustrations. Further, the book offers an overview of treatment options for acute organ failure, with a focus on peculiar clinical situations that call for special treatment, including: extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), circulatory support and urgent liver transplantation. In order to identify the key determinants in decision-making and therapeutic support that can help avoid critical errors, authors not only define and discuss specific surgical techniques, but also present major issues and controversies related to it. In essence, the book can be considered a “What to do guide” that offers easy access to both basic and advanced lifesaving surgical procedures, due in part to text boxes highlighting “Tips, Tricks and Pitfalls” as well as advice on “Complications Management”. Many chapters are enriched by providing clinical case scenarios, an important educational resource including self-assessment questionnaires.

The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology (2nd edition)

 Critical Care, Emergency, Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology (2nd edition)
Jan 092020
 

Fully updated and revised, the second edition of The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology puts a more modern approach on the practice of emergency neurological care. When most texts within the field focus on the theoretical aspects, this book concentrates on the management of neurologic conditions, recognition of deterioration of neurologic functions, neurosurgical procedures, and immediate interventions. This text also presents hard data to explain why we do what we do.

Dr. Wijdicks condenses essential information into several sections comprising of the principles in recognizing critically ill neurologic patients in the emergency department, the evaluation of symptoms indicating critical emergency, general principles of managing critically ill patients, monitoring devices and diagnostic tests, complete management of specific disorders in the neurosciences intensive care unit, postoperative neurosurgical and neurointerventional complications, management of medical complications, and end of life care.

Key Features of the New Edition include

1. Additional chapters on critical consults in surgical and medical ICUs, critical care management, and comprehensive monitoring and biomarkers to reflect new research;
2. Rich illustrations using color photos of patients and drawings of important basic concepts of mechanism of acute neurologic disease;
3. Fully updated and comprehensive reference list;
4. A pocket book of selected tables and figures covering all essential points for quick reference and as a survival guide for house staff.

This is the go-to guide for every physician, staff neurologist, neurointensivist, resident, and fellow in training with managing acutely ill neurologic patients.

Review

“Dr. Wijdicks has written and updated what is a wonderful text for anyone that touches the practice of critical care neurology. The chapters are well organized and thoughtful. The sections on paralysis and coma complement other sections such as the ones on communication and daily practice. This is a book that teaches about science and practice. The writing style is one that facilitates a deep understanding of the field for anyone at any stage of their career and practice.” –Kevin N. Sheth, MD, Chief, Division of Neurocritical Care and Emergency Neurology, Chief, Clinical Research, Department of Neurology; Director, Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit, Yale School of Medicine & Yale New Haven Hospital

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION
“While the book is authoritative and well referenced, the reading experience is more akin to a curbside consult with the expert than a dry recitation of facts and figures. Content is arranged in a manner reflective of the course of clinical care, beginning with evaluation of presenting signs and symptoms (e.g., terrible headache, comatose), progressing to commonly encountered critical care management issues and discussions of specific disorders. Illustrative figures and tables supplement the text, many now in color…This new edition belongs on the office shelf of anyone who treats patients with neurologic urgencies, where it is sure to become a well-thumbed resource.” —Doody’s Health Sciences Book Review
“The name Eelco Wijdicks is synonymous with the development of the specialty of neurocritical care and with the publication of The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology he has produced a comprehensive account of the specialty. He achieves this by combining the latest science with his wealth of personal experience and the result is a work which will appeal to neurologists, anesthesiologists, intensivists, neurosurgeons, emergency room physicians and all allied specialties working with acutely ill neurological patients.” —Neurology, American Academy of Neruology
“Practical and comprehensive are probably the best words to summarize Eelco F M Wijdicks’ The Practice of Emergency and Critical Care Neurology. Wijdicks’ textbook comprehensively covers the specialty of emergency and critical care neurology including differential diagnoses, the meaning of technical monitoring, and differential pharmacological and procedural therapy. At the same time, this book can be used as a practical quick reference. This is as much a reference book for the neurointensivist as it is a teaching book for the young emergency doctor. Compared with the many other books on neurointensive care, the read is refreshingly smooth, which might be because this is a single-author book.” —Thorsten Steiner, The Lancet
