The Respiratory Tract in Pediatric Critical Illness and Injury
Published: 2008-12-12 | ISBN: 1848009240 | 268 pages
The field of critical care medicine is in the midst of a dramatic change. Technological and scientific advances during the last decade have resulted in a fundamental change in the way we view disease processes, such as sepsis, shock, acute lung injury, and traumatic brain injury. Pediatric intensivists have been both witness to and active participants in bringing about these changes and it is imperative that all physicians caring for critically ill children in this new era have a thorough understanding of the applicability of these modern developments to the care of patients at the bedside and to keep up with the rapidly evolving field of critical care medicine. The respiratory system is unique in that it is constantly exposed to a barrage of foreign substances from both the internal and external environment. Many diseases affect the pediatric respiratory system, a large number of whom are not associated with acute respiratory failure. Nevertheless, these constitute a major portion of the practice of pediatric critical care medicine and can account for significant morbidity and mortality. The Respiratory Tract in Pediatric Critical Illness and Injury has been written by an international panel of experts to provide an in-depth review of respiratory disease in the critically ill or injured child. This book is therefore an ideal reference for all involved in the management of the pediatric critically ill patient, from physicians, residents and fellows in critical care, pulmonology, and cardiology, and pediatricians to specialist nurses and support personnel on the pediatric intensive care unit and all medical professionals who are involved in the management of these patients.

Clinical Anesthesia: Near Misses and Lessons Learned

John G. Brock-Utne
Publisher: Springer (October 18, 2007) | ISBN: 0387725199 | Pages: 180

Although near-miss situations are fortunately rare in anesthesiology, it is essential to know how to respond if these situations arise. This collection of actual cases, compiled fr om the author’s thirty-five plus years of practice in major metropolitan hospitals in the United States, Norway, and South Africa, is an excellent review of potential problems and solutions all anesthesiologists should be familiar with. Succinct case presentations describe a problem and the solution, with each write-up concluded by a retrospective analysis examining whether the solution used was actually the best (or only) choice. Other solutions and equally satisfactory outcomes are explored, and tips to help avoid problems altogether are presented wh ere possible. This book may therefore serve as either an excellent review for the American Board of Anesthesiology’s oral exam or as an easy and practical way for the reader to gain familiarity with unexpected problems in clinical anesthesia.

Practical Teaching in Emergency Medicine

Robert L. Rogers, Amal Mattu, Michael Winters and Joseph Martinez
English | 2009 | ISBN: 1405176229 | 259 pages

Inherent to the teaching and practice of emergency medicine are specific challenges not found in other specialties - the unknowns of the emergency department, the need to identify life- and limb-threatening conditions, the pressure to solve problems and find solutions quickly, and the orchestration of clinical specialists and ancillary services.

Because of these unique demands, books written by clinicians from other disciplines, that extrapolate their information from other specialties, aren’t always suitable references for teachers of emergency medicine. This book is different – it shows how to incorporate effective teaching strategies into the unique teaching atmosphere of the emergency department, how to effectively lecture, lead small groups, give feedback, foster life-long faculty development skills, and much more – it is written by emergency medicine physicians for emergency medicine physicians.

Practical Teaching in Emergency Medicine gets to the essential core of how to best teach the art of practicing emergency medicine – and provides the blueprint to become a better teacher, providing guidance on how to accomplish skilful teaching in busy emergency departments. It provides emergency physicians and trainees with the necessary tools to effectively and efficiently transmit information to learners in the often times chaotic emergency department environment.

"Conflict and Catastrophe Medicine: A Practical Guide"
Springer | 2009-04-01 | ISBN: 184800351X | 644 pages

This 2nd updated edition is an entry-level text covering all aspects of deployment, not just medical or health-related, for use by health professionals in a resource-constrained environment brought about by local conflict or natural disasters. Since the 1st edition (2002), there have been seismic changes following the terrorist assault on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. The Middle East, the Far East and parts of Africa are convulsed by conflict, verging on civil war. Colossal natural disasters have since occurred – Tsunamis (SE Asia), Earthquakes (Iran, Turkey, and Pakistan), a Hurricane (Gulf of Mexico). The working environment for the prospective humanitarian volunteer has changed forever.

The book covers preparation, organisation, logistics, treatment of major trauma and medical emergencies, and the problems of delivering medicine in hostile/remote environments. It bridges the fields of medicine, nursing, international relations, history, politics and economics and also touches on nutrition, infection, trauma, psychiatry, and psychological medicine, and training.

"Visual Diagnosis in Emergency and Critical Care Medicine"
W/ey-B,...ell | ISBN: 1405134917 | 2006 | 176 pages

Diagnoses in acute care medicine practice are commonly made using observations from the physical examination, lab results, and radiographs. Often, the clinician-focused exam looks for specific entities to rule out life- or limb-threatening illness or predictors of poor outcomes. Because of the breadth of practice in the acute care setting, clinicians may not have seen many entities that are pathognomonic of specific illness, such as Ludwigrsquo;s angina (rapidly spreading dental infection) or septal hematoma by the end of residency training.
These are important to recognize both for patient care and, specifically in emergency medicine, because board examinations across specialties rely heavily on visual recognition of clinical entities (approximately 15% of the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) certification examination presents questions). Patients typically present with a ldquo;chief complaint,rdquo; and clinicians must use deductive reasoning to narrow a differential diagnosis. Many medical books organize topics based upon disease categories. We propose organizing this book randomly, as patientrsquo;s actually present in acute care settings.
The visual findings with a brief history will be presented on the first page, followed by a discussion (which may also include a differential diagnosis), and specific topic references on the next page. We propose to create a book of common visual diagnoses that are either pathognomonic or suggestive of specific illnesses. The target audience for this book will be all physicians who see patients in acute care settings: emergency physicians, intensivists, internists, family practioners, pediatricians, residents, medical students, and nurses.
The book will be composed of approximately 250 cases from the sections outlined below and presented in a random fashion, such as they would be in a natural clinical setting. The first page will have the case presentation, one or more pictures (physical exam finding, radiograph, or electrocardiogram), and a ldquo;board typerdquo; question. The second page will have the answer to the question, the diagnosis, discussion and references. Page two will have the same picture with an arrow pointing out the abnormality or an additional picture (in the case of additional leads required to diagnose posterior AMI) that provides information
NOTE: This will be in a similar format to ECGs for the Emergency Physician (Amal and Brady) and should sell alongside it. Sales for the ECG book are approximately 1000 since September 2003.
REVIEWS 1 Feedback from juniors was very positive about the visual diagnosis book. I personally would purchase such a book also. Pasted below are just a few of the comments I received when I elicited feedback about the proposal. Hope this helps. Amal I would be very interested in such a book. I have a particular interest in "Visual Diagnosis" stuff - I think it is easier to learn (it doesn't feel like you are really studying), it is more interesting, it is retained longer, and it is clinically very important. I have always liked Rob's visual diagnosis lecture, and I stole his idea and gave such a lecture to the medicine department last year. I'm definitely a sucker for books like this, but I do think the are an important part of medical education. ---Joe (junior level attending) Yes, I would purchase a book like this. There are few books out that do a good job of reviewing visual diagnosis for the written boards. The best that I know of are put out by Ohio ACEP and are similar to what is described here, except that they are arranged by category and do not use the device of a "board type" question. I also happen to like picture books. I typically find them a pleasant way to review. If this book has an index, it would double also as a source of photos for presentations. The sample case seems to balance nicely the need for photos
