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 textbook describes what nurses need to know about pediatric disaster nursing, including public policy, and addresses preparedness for all types of disasters (natural and man-made) and strategies for hospital, school and community preparedness. The book opens with a brief history of disaster nursing and explains the key differences between pediatric and adult disaster nursing. Recent years have been marked by numerous man-made and natural disasters, which have led nurses to seek new resources to be better prepared, in their role as nurses, for all types of disasters. Responding to this lack of resources, the book focuses on the unique needs of babies and children. It is the first and only textbook on pediatric disaster preparedness to include both the physical and psychological effects of disaster. Key aspects covered include: the psychosocial differences in and how to approach children; family reunification; medications, supplies and equipment; and decontamination. Given its breadth of coverage, the book is well suited as a textbook for nursing classes, while also offering a valuable resource for nurses working in the field.
