Critical Care Emergency Medicine has become the standard reference for all clinicians who wish to understand the overlap between emergency medicine and critical care. Much like the field of emergency medicine itself, this text is a collaborative effort involving emergency physicians as well as clinicians from trauma, critical care, infectious diseases, and pulmonary medicine.

Critical Care Emergency Medicine teaches emergency physicians everything they must know and do to better care for critically ill patients in an emergency department or to provide care in an ICU. Enhanced by numerous algorithms that speed decision making and full-color illustrations demonstrating anatomy and technique, this book is an essential practice tool.

Incorporating the wisdom of both academic and community emergency medicine experts, Critical Care Emergency Medicine, Second Edition delivers expert coverage of:

• Airway and Ventilatory Support
• Pulmonary Disorders
• Cardiovascular Disorders
• Gastrointestinal and Renal Disorders
• Neurologic and Neurosurgical Disorders
• Hematologic and Endocrine Disorders
• Infectious Disorders
• Toxicologic Conditions
• Ultrasonography in Critical Care
• Special Considerations (including nutritional support, end-of-life issues, fluid management, and more)

If you are looking for an up-to-date, evidence-based text designed to take your critical care to the next level, your search ends here.  

The airway management of unstable and critically ill patients has always been an essential skill within the emergency physician’s scope of practice. The early act of inserting an artificial airway  protects  the  lungs  from  aspiration  in  an  obtunded patient, or prevents hypoxia and carbon dioxide retention in a  patient  who  cannot  spontaneously  breathe. This  has  been shown to improve neurologic outcome when performed early during the initial phase of resuscitation, and emergency physicians are often the first clinicians to perform intubation and initiate mechanical ventilation.
While direct laryngoscopy is associated with a high rate of success with few adverse events when performed by personnel skilled in its use, there are a number of clinical scenarios and  presentations  in  which  direct  or  indirect  laryngoscopic intubation is difficult or impossible. Disruption of the normal anatomy due to body habitus, medical and surgical disease,  or  facial  and oral  trauma  can  result in  soft-tissue  and bony structure distortion. Obstruction or lack of laryngeal visualization can be caused by copious amounts of blood or vomitus,  facial  edema,  vocal  cord  swelling  from  prolonged or  multiple  intubation  attempts,  anaphylaxis,  angioedema, and burns.
