  • Information


This book is designed to consolidate the relevant literature as well as the thoughts of professionals currently working in the field into a practical and accessible reference for the emergency medical technician, student, nurse, resident, and attending emergency physician.

Each chapter is divided into four sections: case presentation, discussion, review of the current literature, and recommendations.

Designed to serve simultaneously as a learning and reference tool, each chapter begins with a real case that was encountered in an ED setting.

The case presentation is followed by a short discussion of the case, as if at a morbidity and mortality conference, by a panel of experienced attending physicians explaining how they would approach the ethical dilemmas associated with the case, and a review of the existing literature.
