Handbook of Emergency Room Protocols

by S Arulrhaj, T Neelambujan, Archana Ambujan, Aarathy Kannan

This book provides a systemic approach to the diagnosis and management of medical emergencies. Emergency care is defined by “time in medical emergencies” and the emergency department (ED) is the most diverse melting pot of acute conditions in the hospital. This book is divided into 16 sections that focus on cardiovascular system, critical care, respiratory system, gastrointestinal tract, central nervous system, renal medicine, endocrine disorders, electrolytes and acid-base disturbances, poisoning, obstetrics and gynecology, trauma, general surgery, pediatrics, psychiatry, dermatology, and anesthesia. Each topic begins with ‘key points’ before guiding the reader step by step through clinical presentation, history taking, physical examination, diagnostic methods, medical decision-making, and treatment plans. Diagnostic algorithms are a unique feature that attempt to simplify the problem and point the clinician in the right direction. This book will enhance the emergency medicine experience of all our professionals, colleagues, which will definitely transform the care offered to our patients on ER toward positive outcomes.
