  • Psychiatrists and diverse other mental health and broader healthcare professionals are faced with many challenges in effectively evaluating and treating persons with psychiatric illnesses and substance use disorders. Resources are often stretched thin, especially for those with the most serious and disabling conditions, and many people who would benefit from treatment are untreated, undertreated, or treated only after extended delays for complex reasons. Clinicians clearly have difficulties and barriers in their efforts to provide comprehensive, efficacious, and timely treatment.

  • Intravascular catheters are an integral part of the daily practice of medicine in the intensive care unit. As such, management of these catheters poses significant challenges to the practitioner. Vascular access is necessary in the intensive care setting, yet the devices themselves put patients at significant risk for infection. As hospital infection rates are increasingly used as a surrogate marker for measuring patient safety and quality healthcare, preventing catheter-related infection takes on added import...

  • The physician treating the acutely ill febrile patient must be able to recognize infections that require emergent attention. If such infections are not adequately evaluated and treated at initial presentation, the opportunity to alter an adverse outcome may be lost. In this chapter, the clinical presentations of and approach to patients with relatively common infectious disease emergencies are discussed. These infectious processes and their treatments are discussed in detail in other chapters. ...

  • 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 the text.

  • The successful epidemiologic evaluation of any particular disease or condition has several prerequisites. Two of the most important prerequisites are that the condition should be accurately defi ned and that there should be measurable outcomes of interest. Another requirement is that there must be some systematic way of data collection or surveillance that will allow the measurement of the outcomes of interest and associated risk factors. The epidemiologic evaluation of critical illness associated with pregnancy has met with mixed success on all of these counts....

  • Children are frightening. Frightening? In nearly all contexts this statement would be indefensible. In medicine, however, children are often frightening. For one thing, clinical evaluation in young children can be more difficult than with adults. In addition, in the acutely ill or injured child, reserve can be limited and appropriate assessment, including imaging evaluation, and subsequent care are critically important in improving outcome. Many care providers are not pediatric specialists by practice, and evaluation and treatment of children is less familiar than with adults....

  • 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.

  • The ICU Manual was developed as a bedside reference for house officers, fellows, and attendings who care for patients in ICUs. The book is organized in organ-specific chapters. This was done to increase the utility of and simplify the use of this manual. The organ specific approach parallels the way patients in the ICU are cared for. This approach enables the clinician to organize the diagnosis and management of complicated critically ill patients.

  • 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....

  • Since this book was first published in 1993, the Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS) concept and courses have gone a great way towards their aim of bringing simple guidelines for the management of ill and injured children to front-line doctors and nurses. Over the years an increasing number of experts have contributed to the work and we extend our thanks both to them and also to our instructors who unceasingly provide helpful feedback.The Advanced Paediatric Life Support Course is now well established in several countries outside the United Kingdom.

  • Hemodynamic monitoring is one of the major diagnostic tools available in the acute care setting to diagnose cardiovascular insufficiency and monitor changes over time in response to interventions. However, in recent years, the rationale and efficacy of hemodynamic monitoring to affect outcome has come into question. We now have increasing evidence that outcome from critical illness can be improved by focused resuscitation based on existing hemodynamic monitoring, whereas non-specific aggressive resuscitation impairs survival.

  • Vitamins and trace minerals are required constituents of the human diet since they are either inadequately synthesized or not synthesized in the human body. Only small amounts of these substances are needed for carrying out essential biochemical reactions (e.g., acting as coenzymes or prosthetic groups). Overt vitamin or trace mineral deficiencies are rare in Western countries due to a plentiful, varied, and inexpensive food supply; however, multiple nutrient deficiencies may appear together in persons who are chronically ill or alcoholic.

  • Botulism is a paralytic disease caused by potent protein neurotoxins elaborated by Clostridium botulinum. Illness begins with cranial nerve involvement and proceeds caudally to involve the extremities. Cases may be classified as (1) food-borne botulism, from ingestion of preformed toxin in food contaminated with C. botulinum; (2) wound botulism, from toxin produced in wounds contaminated with the organism; and (3) intestinal botulism, from ingestion of spores and production of toxin in the intestine of infants (infant botulism) or adults.

  • An English translation oi VEchographie Generale en Reanimation was necessary, after two French versions in 1992 and 2002. Ultrasound has, it is true, gained a more important place in emergency and intensive care medicine. Technological evolution alone does not explain this popularity. Technology develops extremely quickly, but we have always suggested - and continue to do so - that before rushing to the most modern ultrasound units, we should already make optimal use of so-called obsolete devices.

  • Coma may be anticipated as an integral component of the terminal event of all fatal human illnesses. However, coma, which represents failure of the brain’s alerting system, may be completely reversible. The earlier the process inciting the comatose state is treated, the greater the likelihood of a more rapid complete recovery. The differential diagnoses of the causes of coma are numerous and varied.
