Abstract
This book presents a vast collection of radiologic images of cases seen in a very busy emergency room. It encompasses common and very unusual pathology and every imaging modality. The book is divided into four parts on pathology of the vascular system, the chest, the abdomen and pelvis, and the reproductive organs. At the beginning of the presentation of each condition, the diagnosis and expected imaging features are set out. Images obtained with the modalities that best depict that particular abnormality are then presented, with marking of the salient pathology for easy understanding. Brief captions cite the clinical indication, explain the marked abnormal imaging features, and identify the modality and its characteristics. Whenever possible, differential diagnosis is covered using further images so the reader can see the spectrum of imaging features that distinguish pathologies despite similar clinical presentation. In addition, guidance is provided on selection of further modalities to confirm the diagnosis. The book will be of value to a wide audience: It will help residents to analyze different diseases and relate pathophysiology to imaging and assist students in appreciating what is normal and what is abnormal. It will serve as a useful guide to the busy practicing radiologist, especially when encountering an unusual case. Finally, it will aid clinicians in understanding the complexity of these acute clinical problems and in delivering better focused treatment.

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.

Emergency medicine is a specialty where time and knowledge are critical factors in deciding appropriate management which could otherwise result in loss of life or limb. The challenge often is to have lucid management plans, whilst standing at the bedside of the patient. In order to address this challenge, a manuscript is needed which aims to enhance the clinical skills of the emergency physician. The objective of this book is to compile a road map for practitioners of emergency medicine, which would guide them through algorithm-based pathways.

Abstract
Core Topics in General and Emergency Surgery meets the needs of surgeons in higher training and practising consultants for a contemporary and evidence-based account of general surgery in both elective and emergency situations. It is a practical reference source incorporating the most current information on recent developments, management issues and operative procedures. The text is thoroughly referenced and supported by evidence-based recommendations wherever possible, distinguishing between strong evidence to support a conclusion, and evidence suggesting that a recommendation can be reached on the balance of probabilities.

Abstract
This book offers a practical tool for handling neuromuscular emergencies, and is divided by the main neuromuscular diseases on the basis of their anatomical and clinical location: diseases affecting the anterior horn of the spinal cord (tetanus), those that affect the nerve roots and nerves (SGB, multiple mononeuritis, porphyria), the neuromuscular junction (MG and botulism) and, lastly, muscle pathologies (rhabdomyolysis, malignant hyperthermia, periodic paralysis). It provides updated diagnostic/therapeutic protocols and decision-making algorithms for each pathology, and examines a range of scenarios on the basis of clinical cases. Emergencies in Neuromuscular Disease will be of interests for a wide variety of specialists including neurologist, neurophysiologists and anesthesiologists.

Abstract
Obstetrical emergencies can be among the most stressful events an emergency physician will face in their entire career. The purpose of this book is to provide an evidence-based, practical approach to the wide spectrum of obstetric complications an emergency physician must be prepared to manage throughout all trimesters pregnancy as well as postpartum, including complications of assisted reproductive technology, bleeding, precipitous delivery and preterm labor. Clinical pearls and pitfalls are highlighted throughout. The approach to the pregnant patient with trauma, non-pregnancy-related abdominal pain, or in cardiac arrest is discussed. Updates in the classification and management of the hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are presented. Recent controversies surrounding the use of anti-emetics for first trimester nausea and vomiting and the use of a beta-hCG discriminatory zone for the evaluation of pregnancy of unknown location are also addressed. Obstetrical support services vary widely between different facilities, and Emergency Department Management of Obstetric Complications is written for emergency clinicians in all practice settings. This book provides useful information for daily practice as well as preparation for rarely encountered and potentially life-threatening events.
