About the Authors
  • Of all of the clinical entities within the discipline of medicine, vascular emergencies are the most time sensitive, and the patients with these conditions are amongst the most severely ill. Emergency care providers encounter these entities on a day-to-day basis in the emergency department. Vascular emergencies by their very nature are limb and life threatening, and emergency physicians and other providers have to be expert in the care and disposition of this group of patients. Vascular Emergencies focuses on the acute presentation in the emergency department. Each chapter includes a discussion on diagnosis and treatment when resources are limited, a list of critical actions, pearls and pitfalls, and definitive care. Written by emergency physicians with unique understanding of the pertinent issues in the emergency department, this book provides practical advice for all acute care providers caring for patients with vascular emergencies.

    • Focuses on the initial emergency department presentation
    • Contains practical pearls and pitfalls
    • Written by emergency physicians
