"Vascular emergencies are common in the practice of emergency medicine, and emergency care providers will no doubt encounter these entities on a day-to-day basis in the emergency department. Of all of the clinical entities in the house of medicine, vascular emergencies typically are the most time sensitive, and the patients with these conditions tend to be the sickest. Vascular emergencies by their very nature are limb and life threatening, and emergency physicians and other acute care providers should be expert in the care and disposition of this group of patients in order to ensure an optimal outcome. This book, developed by emergency physicians, vascular surgeons, and trauma surgeons who know what it is like to see patients day in and day out, will focus on the acute presentation of vascular emergencies in the emergency department. The overall aim of the book is to provide practical, useful information that will allow for the delivery of excellent medical care"--Provided by publisher.
