Much has changed in emergency medicine over the years (eg, procedures, technology, regulations, etc.) but the focus and dedication of the emergency physicians and other health professionals who provide emergency care have never wavered.
Two emergency physician photographers, Elsburgh Clarke, MD, and Benjamin Thomas, MD have captured moments of intensity and compassion in the ED over the years. Here are some of those moments.
TAKE THE HISTORY HOME
Working in an ED, you see miracles and extraordinary experiences every day. The history of emergency medicine is a miracle and extraordinary experience of its own, and now you can own a piece of that history with two books: Bring ‘em All: Chaos. Care. Stories from Medicine’s Front Line and Anyone, Anything, Anytime –A History of Emergency Medicine (2nd Edition).
Through 50 breathtaking photo essays, award-winning photojournalist Eugene Richards, of The Knife and Gun Club fame, gets an up-and-close look into emergency medicine in Bring ‘Em All. His photos capture emergency physicians in the many locations they work: urban and suburban emergency departments, battlefields, and remote wilderness areas.
If you’re a history buff, Brian J. Zink, MD, delves into the evolution of emergency medicine from its early days following World War II through the turbulent 1960s and 1970s, to the modern day in Anyone, Anything, Anytime. This second edition includes full-color photos and more in-depth interviews with those who played an integral role in shaping the specialty.
