Featuring over 400 full-color photographs, this atlas is a visual guide to the diagnosis and management of pediatric emergencies and acute conditions. It’s an indispensable reference in the emergency department, or in the pediatric clinic where rapid diagnosis depends on accurate physical observations.
Sections organized by body region/system cover acute medical problems, medical and surgical emergencies, and trauma, including child abuse. Each chapter begins with a brief overview of the type of emergency, presenting signs and symptoms, and differential diagnosis. Photographs showing specific emergencies comprise the bulk of each chapter and are accompanied by discussions of patient presentation, diagnostic studies, and management.
Essential Emergency Trauma is a concise, reader-friendly, and portable reference on the care of trauma patients in the emergency department. Geared to practicing emergency physicians, residents, and medical students, the book focuses sharply on the key details needed to stabilize and treat trauma patients with a wide variety of injuries.
Major sections cover trauma of each anatomic region. Each section opens with a chapter 'The First 15 Minutes, Algorithm, and Decision Making'. Subsequent chapters focus on specific injury patterns, emphasizing pathophysiology, diagnosis, evaluation, and management. The information is presented in bullet points with numerous tables and images. Each chapter ends with an up-to-date review of the 'Best Evidence'.
With the increased emphasis on reducing medical errors in an emergency setting, this book will focus on patient safety within the emergency department, where preventable medical errors often occur.

Special sections discuss ED design, medication safety, and awareness of the 'culture of safety.'
