English | 2007-09-01 | ISBN: 078177490X | CHM | 416 pages | 35 MB
This portable quick-reference handbook gives residents, medical students, and practitioners a bedside refresher on the key components of 86 procedures used in emergency medicine. Procedures are grouped by organ system, with additional sections on nerve blocks and pediatric procedures.
Unique to this handbook is a section on limited, goal-directed bedside ultrasonography and echocardiography--procedures that are an integral part of emergency medicine care and trauma assessment and are not described in detail in any other handbook. Each procedure is presented in a similar format: indications, contraindications, risks/consent issues, anatomic landmarks, technique, precautions, and pearls. More than 300 illustrations complement the text.
