About the Authors
  • Building on the strengths of its award-winning predecessor, this new edition of An Introduction to Clinical Emergency Medicine is a must-have resource for individuals training and practising in this challenging specialty. Guided by the patient's chief complaint, this text presents a concise, methodical approach to patient evaluation, management and problem solving in the Emergency Department. Unlike other textbooks, which elaborate on known diagnoses, this extraordinary book approaches clinical problems as clinicians approach patients – without full knowledge of the final diagnosis. Fully revised and updated, the second edition includes new chapters on sepsis, bleeding, burns, neonatal, alcohol-related, and dental emergencies. Stunning full-color chapters include clinical images (photographs, ECGs and radiologic studies), detailed illustrations and practical tables. Written and edited by experienced educators, researchers, and practitioners in Emergency Medicine, this text is core reading for students and residents, and an important resource for practising emergency physicians, faculty, and other healthcare providers.

    • Chapters are arranged by presenting complaints, which helps readers methodically evaluate and manage patients
    • Includes detailed, practical tables and extensive DDXs for each presenting complaint, highlighting life-threatening conditions
    • Recommended by numerous student, resident, paramedic, physician assistant and nursing organizations
    • First edition won the prestigious American Medical Writers Association's Book Award (Physician category, 1st place) in 2006

    Reviews & endorsements

    Review of the first edition: 'An Introduction to Clinical Emergency Medicine has something for everyone, at all levels, from student to senior. … The principal 'added value' of the book is the symptoms-based, rather than diagnosis-based, approach. Patients are managed according to the severity of their presentation, often when the clinical 'picture' is incomplete, so the focus is on clinical decision-making.' Clinical Medicine

    Review of the first edition: 'I rather liked this book. In particular the way the various topics were laid out giving advice on how to approach the patient. … This is a book that all Accident and Emergency trainees will be very pleased to own. I wish it had been available many years ago when I was a trainee working in the Accident and Emergency Department.' Anaesthesia

    Review of the first edition: 'As a clinical practitioner, I find this is one of the most useful general texts I have seen in some time.' Accident and Emergency Nursing Journal

    Review of the first edition: 'It was direct, gave good advice and led the reader to pass on a well examined, well diagnosed and well treated patient to the next layer of the complex medical tree that is today's modern general hospital. This is a book that all Accident and Emergency trainees will be very pleased to own.' British Journal of Anaesthesia

    Review of the first edition: 'I have found this work an excellent introduction to emergency medicine, and [it] should be first reading for any new student interested in emergency medicine. Dr Mahadevan and Dr Garmel should be applauded for this work.' Biowww.net
