abstract
"The Practitioner's understanding of emergency medicine principles and practice, directly benefiting patient care in a variety of emergency settings An Introduction to Clinical Emergency Medicine, Second Edition is a much-needed resource for individuals practicing this challenging field. This textbook is novel in its approach to emergency medicine topics. It describes in detail the best and most current methods to care for patients in the emergency department, including initial evaluation, generation of differential diagnoses, problem solving, and management of challenging conditions based on presenting symptoms. Unlike other textbooks, in which the diagnosis is known, this textbook approaches clinical problems as clinicians manage patients - without full knowledge of the final diagnosis. It provides an understanding for how to approach patients with undifferentiated conditions, ask the right questions, gather historical data, utilize physical examination skills, and order and interpret appropriate laboratory and radiographic tests. This textbook also provides current management and disposition strategies with controversies presented, including pearls, pitfalls, and myths for topics covered. Chapters are written by nationally- and internationally respected clinicians, educators, and researchers in the field of emergency medicine. Second Edition of An Introduction to Clinical Emergency Medicine offers just the right combination of text, clinical images, and practical information for students, residents, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and experienced physicians in all medical disciplines"--

Reviews
Review Quotes
Review of the first edition: 'An Introduction to Clinical Emergency Medicine has something for everyone, at all levels, from student to senior. ... The principal 'added value' of the book is the symptoms-based, rather than diagnosis-based, approach. Patients are managed according to the severity of their presentation, often when the clinical 'picture' is incomplete, so the focus is on clinical decision-making.' Clinical Medicine
Review of the first edition: 'As a clinical practitioner, I find this is one of the most useful general texts I have seen in some time.' Accident and Emergency Nursing Journal
Review of the first edition: 'I have found this work an excellent introduction to emergency medicine, and [it] should be first reading for any new student interested in emergency medicine. Dr Mahadevan and Dr Garmel should be applauded for this work.' Biowww.net
Review of the first edition: 'I rather liked this book. In particular the way the various topics were laid out giving advice on how to approach the patient. ... This is a book that all Accident and Emergency trainees will be very pleased to own. I wish it had been available many years ago when I was a trainee working in the Accident and Emergency Department.' Anaesthesia
Review of the first edition: 'It was direct, gave good advice and led the reader to pass on a well examined, well diagnosed and well treated patient to the next layer of the complex medical tree that is today's modern general hospital. This is a book that all Accident and Emergency trainees will be very pleased to own.' British Journal of Anaesthesia
