Psychiatric Emergencies Excerpt :

"A 38-year-old married woman is brought to the emergency department by EMS. The EMTs report that she had been talking about having suicidal ideation and wanting to kill herself. She also complains of nausea and vomiting. You have been called to examine her. As you approach her stretcher, you notice that she has long, dark hair that looks matted and somewhat disheveled. She looks pale and is gripping a bowl. As you step to her side, she sits up, bends over the bowl and throws up liquid material, with a trace of bright red blood. You wait until she is done, and ask her: "Can I help you?" She looks at you for a split second and then puts her finger down her throat and induces vomiting. She then slides down on the stretcher, feet hanging off the edge and begins to moan. She does not answer, and does not look at you. You ask again: "You must feel very nauseous. Is there anything I can do to help you?" She barely looks at you, just groans, and once again puts her finger in her mouth to initiate the gag reflex. She hugs the bowl, throws up clear liquid, and continues to heave. She then turns away from you and stops responding to your offer to help"--

55th Anniversary of the German Society for Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Excerpt :

This book presents to all those who are interested in the history of Anaesthesiology historical details and information on the development of anaesthesiology in Germany and the remarkable growth of our Society. At the founding session of the German Society of Anaesthesia in Munich on 10 April 1953 42 persons had signed the founding documents. Today about 12,000 anaesthetists are members of the German Society of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine, making the DGAI the biggest national society within ESA. Well known are the pioneering contributions of German scientists and surgeons to the development of general, regional and local anaesthesia during the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries. But less known outside Germany are the reasons for the delayed evolution of anaesthesiology as a specialty of its own in German medicine, far later than in the UK, Scandinavia or the USA. In this book you will find answers to this question and detailed information on the successful evolution of anaesthesiology especially at the Faculties of Medicine at German universities.

Catastrophic Neurologic Disorders in the Emergency Department Excerpt :

This unique text takes a comprehensive approach to the care of patients with neurologic catastrophes immediately after their entry into the emergency department. Wijdicks discusses clinical evaluations, triage, and emergency procedures in detail, and covers many other topics. For this thoroughly updated second edition, he has added eight new chapters, seven of which appear in an entirely new first section on the evaluation of presenting symptoms indicating urgency. The conversational titles of these chapters echo common requests for urgent consultation (e.g. "short of breath," "can't walk or stand," "confused and febrile"). A special feature of this section is the use of algorithms and decision trees in triage - to help the physician make a very fast and yet informed decision. The remaining two sections of the book cover the evaluation and management of evolving catastrophes in the neuraxis and catastrophic neurologic disorders due to specific causes. There is a final new chapter on forensic neurology. This practical handbook will continue to be an invaluable guide for neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, emergency physicians, and their residents and fellows. The third volume in the author's trilogy on critical care neurology, it combines the images of a neuroradiology text with the practical advice of an emergency neurology manual without compromising academic rigor.
