(BQ) Emergency Care in Athletic Training is a specialized textbook that addresses the specific educational needs of athletic training students and certified athletic trainers who are preparing to handle emergency medical situations in all areas of athletics.
(BQ) Prepare athletic trainers to provide emergency treatment for acute sports-related injuries and illnesses in children, adolescents, and adults—on and off the field. Noted practitioners and educators address all aspects of the evaluation and management of the full-range of medical problems that may be encountered. From emergency evaluation and airway management through the major categories of injury, this timely text meets a critical need in the classroom and in practice
This book is designed to fit into a handbag or shirt pocket. It
contains material which is usually required in a hurry when
treating a critically ill or injured infant or child. In addition to
information relevant to emergency care, there are what we
hope will be useful pages of data on subjects which without a
photographic memory would normally require reference to a
paediatric text book. Examples include a weight for height
chart, normal values for common biochemical tests, normal
developmental profiles and normal ECG measurements....
In the Preface to the first edition of the Handbook of Veterinary Procedures and Emergency
Treatment, published in 1969, Dr. Kirk and Dr. Bistner described the format of that book
as being divided into six sections, “each emphasizing a facet of early examination, clinical
methods, or emergency care.”
Today, 37 years later, those original objectives remain unchanged. What has changed,
however, are the numerous advances in clinical diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities in
companion animal medicine.

Emergency Planning is a critical component of every facility’s mission to provide a safe
environment for its residents, staff, patrons and visitors. The key to successful emergency
response lies in the details of preparedness. Generic (one-size fits all) guidelines for emergency
response are insufficient. Our safety in an emergency depends on the careful, detailed planning
and training that goes on well before an emergency occurs and that is specific to each facility.
In the 4th edition we have distilled the text to a set of fl ow diagrams with
linked tables. Our aim is to provide the doctor caring for an acutely ill patient
with rapid access to key information, including a balanced interpretation of
current national and international guidelines.
We have substantially broadened the scope of the book to cover all problems
in general medicine likely to be encountered in the emergency department.
Integration of the use of echocardiography, which we believe is as
important in acute medicine as ECG interpretation, is a particular feature of
This book has been written to enable health care workers to understand the principles of
managing an acute medical emergency safely and effectively.To achieve this aim it provides
a structured approach to medical emergencies, describing relevant pathophysiology
that will also help to explain physical signs and the rationale behind treatment.The first
edition of this manual (written by Terry Wardle) has undergone significant modification
directed by the working group and also, in particular, candidates from the first
Emergencies in medicine are difficult on two fronts: they may challenge both the
health of the patient and the skills of the doctor in charge. If the latter, the former
may deteriorate rapidly. Thus, the definition of an emergency indeed depends on
who is facing it. As we mature along our clinical pathways of education, training, and
experience, the risk of going through a personal professional emergency is continuously
reduced. Nevertheless, throughout our medical career, accurate self-assessment
and subsequent control of our actions remain our most important qualities.
Emergency Vascular Surgery – A Practical Guide provides a concise guide to
managing patients with all kinds of emergent vascular problems. It is not intended
to be a “classic” textbook, so the background information given is very
concise. The focus is instead on management and treatment, especially open
The text is written for newcomers to the vascular surgical field, for surgical
trainees, and for all doctors who treat emergent vascular surgical patients in
the emergency department....
In a crunch, when interviewing an eyewitness, Dragnet’s Sgt. Joe Friday
would implore, ‘‘Just the facts, ma’am, just the facts.’’ Our textbook, Just
the Facts in Emergency Medicine, aims to provide just that for emergency
physicians who are studying for either the written board (re)certification
examination in emergency medicine or the in-training written examination
The patient admitted to the hospital is already an individual who is at risk because
of an underlying pathology that requires inpatient care. When patients decline,
they have evidence of clinical deterioration (hypoxia, hypotension, tachypnoea,
tachycardia, altered level of consciousness) that is often documented in the medical
record 8 to 48 hours prior to a crisis being detected
Cardiovascular emergencies account for 30–40% of an acute
medical workload that has grown inexorably over the last two
decades. The same period has also witnessed unprecedented
changes in the classification, investigation and treatment of
acute cardiac problems, driven by advances in basic sciences,
pharmacology and technology, but above all by a proliferating
body of evidence from controlled trials.
Procedural sedation and analgesia represents one of the great advances in the maturation
of emergencymedicine as a discrete specialtywithinmedicine.Once the exclusive domain
of the anesthesiologist, sedation and painmanagement procedures are nowa routine part
of all emergency department practices.
Emergency Sedation and Pain Management is a comprehensive medical text
addressing emergency sedation and analgesia with specific emphasis on treatment of
the emergency department patient.
Acute-care clinicians are well aware of the alphabetical
“ABC” (airway, breathing, circulation)
directive of resuscitation. This term has been
widely disseminated through programs such as
Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) and Advanced
Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). In fact,
both courses have contributed significantly to
improving awareness of resuscitation priorities
required in managing patients rendered critically
ill from trauma or cardiac events.
This book is aimed at Foundation Programme trainees and for trainees in
medicine, surgery, anaesthesia and emergency medicine – people who deal
with acutely ill adults. Foundation Programme trainers, final year medical
students and nursing staff working in critical care areas will also find this
book extremely useful.
There are many books on the management of patients who are acutely ill,
but all have a traditional ‘recipe’ format. One looks up a diagnosis, and the
management is summarised.
Cardiovascular emergencies account for at least 30% of all medical emergencies. The impact of cardiovascular disease is felt in every hospital and every community. Whether you are drawn to critical care practice or not, you are bound to be confronted by acute cardiac events. Responding appropriately to cardiac emergencies requires a basic familiarity with cardiac anatomy and physiology, the ability to mobilize an advanced life support team, and the skills to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)....
