Abstract
Now in its fully revised and expanded second edition, this volume is the definitive resource on long-distance air transport of injured patients in both peacetime and wartime. It discusses the history of aeromedical evacuation, triage and staging of the injured patient, evacuation from site of injury to medical facility, air-frame capabilities, medical capabilities in- flight, response to in-flight emergencies, and mass emergency evacuation. Specific medical conditions are addressed in detail in the second half of the book, including general surgical casualties such as abdominal wounds and soft tissue injuries, vascular injuries, maxillofacial injuries, head and spinal cord injuries, ophthalmologic casualties, orthopedic casualties, burns, pediatric casualties, obstetric-gynecologic casualties, and more. For each medical condition, important topics are addressed such as conditions needed to be met before transportation, special concerns, supplies and needs of the specific patients and possible in-flight emergencies and their appropriated treatment. Containing several new chapters and featuring extensively updated contributions from experts in the field, Aeromedical Evacuation: Management of the Acute and Stabilized Patient, Second Edition is a must-have reference for a whole new generation of military flight surgeons and flight nurses responsible for aeromedical evacuation of casualties as well as civilian physicians and nurses involved in air transport of ill and post-operative patients.

Abstract
The term "dermatologic emergency" is rarely used, and a dermatologist is typically not the first physician called when a patient presents to the emergency department. However, largely under-recognized dermatoses can be life-threatening if not diagnosed and treated in a timely fashion.Buka's Emergencies in Dermatology addresses the need for a concise, portable reference that can be used by emergency personnel, dermatologists and resident-physicians.T his text, heavily illustrated with color images, proves to be especially critical if a community-based hospital does not have a dermatology department and the responsibility for initial diagnosis falls to the emergency room or critical care physician. While the vast majority of cutaneous outbreaks are not life-threatening, those that are can go unrecognized with devastating consequences. Buka's Emergencies in Dermatology addresses this concern and focuses on the most critical issues in cutaneous emergencies, from neonatal and pediatric emergencies, to infectious emergencies and drug eruptions.

Abstract
This comprehensive book provides practical guidance on the care of the critical patient in the emergency department. It focuses on the ED physician or provider working in a community hospital where, absent the consulting specialists found in a large academic center, the provider must evaluate and stabilize critically ill and injured patients alone. Structured in an easily accessible format, chapters present fundamental information in tables, bullet points, and flow diagrams. Emergency medicine scenarios covered across 38 chapters include acute respiratory failure, spinal cord Injuries, seizures and status epilepticus, care of the newborn, and end-of-life care. Written by experts in the field, Emergency Department Critical Care is an essential resource for practicing emergency physicians and trainees, internists and family physicians, advance practice nurses, and physician’s assistants who provide care in emergency departments and urgent care centers.

Abstract
This book provides an up-to-date, systematic review of all facets of emergency radiology in patients with chest trauma or pain with the aim of equipping the reader with a detailed knowledge of the various radiological patterns, which is essential in order to make a prompt diagnosis under circumstances when time is of critical importance. To this end, the indications, value, and results of the various emergency imaging modalities, including sonography and interventional radiology, are described and illustrated in the full range of blunt chest injuries and nontraumatic chest emergencies. Technological aspects, protocols tailored to the mechanism of injury, and post-processing techniques are also extensively covered. Emergency Radiology of the Chest and Cardiovascular System will be of value to general and interventional radiologists, radiology residents, radiology technicians, and all physicians and surgeons who work in emergency care.

Abstract
This book presents evidence-based criteria to systematically assess the appropriate use of medical imaging in the emergency department and other acute care settings. Over the last decade, there have been profound changes in the diagnostic testing and work-up of patients presenting to the emergency department with emergent symptoms. One of the most far-reaching changes has been the increased availability, speed, and accuracy of imaging due, in part, to technical improvements in imaging modalities such as CT, MR, and PET. Although the use of high-end imaging has plateaued in general, increased utilization continues in the ED. These patients are more acutely ill and there is additional pressure to make an accurate diagnosis as quickly as possible to facilitate prompt disposition or treatment. There is also strong evidence for the beneficial use of imaging in the emergency setting that results in improved patient outcomes. This book answers that need by providing protocols and guidelines for neuroradiological, cardiothoracic, abdominal and pelvic, musculoskeletal, and pediatric imaging are reviewed in terms of the available imaging modalities, diagnostic criteria, and treatment options. Distinguished by its unique focus on evidence-based emergency imaging in adults, children, and special populations, this book is a unique resource for radiologists, emergency medicine physicians, and physicians in other specialties who need to be informed about the most appropriate uses of diagnostic imaging in the emergency care setting.
