Challenging and Emerging Conditions in Emergency Medicine
By Arvind Venkat, M.D., FACEP
With growing numbers of chronically ill patients surviving longer and receiving novel medical and surgical treatments, EDs are increasingly the venue for associated acute presentations. How can emergency physicians respond to these challenging and emerging conditions?
This book focuses on the unusual and complex disease presentations not covered in detail in the standard textbooks, helping you manage patients with conditions such as congenital heart disease, cystic fibrosis, morbid obesity, intellectual disability, and intestinal failure.
The book provide guidance on evaluation and diagnosis, as well as practical issues of acute management and continuing referral. The chapters are written by high-profile emergency physicians, in conjunction with appropriate specialists, and include authoritative evidence to back up the clinical information.
