Emergency Department Critical Care PDF
2.44 MB PDF
The care of those with critical illness is best started early to avoid the cascade of adaptive and maladaptive events that can worsen outcomes. In this text, we seek to identify the presentations of selected critical illnesses in the emergency department (ED) and to guide the bedside provider. We target common categories of acute illness and describe the use of key approaches to assess illness and improve care. Each chapter is meant to stand alone and provide practical advice.
We recognize that some critical events and illnesses are not covered here, and in-depth discussion of other topics can be found in companion texts in this series. Our goal is to focus on the ED needs and to deliver pragmatic advice to guide common needs, complementing the care before and after this interval. This approach has been central here at the University of Pittsburgh based on the efforts of early thought leaders including Peter Safar and Ronald Stewart. These pioneers saw the value of early care, starting at first patient contact and merging with later efforts. We eschew a detailed analysis of all potential mechanisms and therapies and instead seek concise readability.
