Preface

Rosen and Barkin's 5-Minute Emergency Medicine Consult continues to reflect the evolving nature of our clinical emergency medicine practices. Emergency medicine provides unique challenges to the clinician; the remarkable breadth of clinical conditions encountered, the time constraints of an acute illness, environmental considerations, and the logistical demands of busy emergency departments. Time is of the essence, and this book is truly designed to meet the needs of clinicians working in settings providing urgent and emergent care. To look for a diagnosis, one must think of it, and the very nature of the emergency department (ED) makes prolonged deliberation difficult. Nevertheless, it must become instinctive to think about the statistically rare, but clinically serious entity, rather than to just reach for the statistically probable but nonlife-threatening diagnosis.

Rosen and Barkin's 5-Minute Emergency Medicine Consult provides concise formatted information allowing the busy clinician to respond to each patient appropriately. It is meant to be readily available in the ED, and frequently used in the trenches. Written and edited by practicing clinicians for their colleagues, the book is designed to synthesize a mountain of information into tightly formatted chapters that stimulate analysis and subsequent assessment.

We have attempted to integrate our authors' expertise, experience, and knowledge base onto the pages of this book. The chapters are not meant to be a diagnostic engine, but rather a place to confirm a diagnosis supported by clinical judgment and the subjective and objective evidence of a patient's presentation. Our authors attempt to provide a precise and clinically relevant summary useful in caring for the patient while also equipping students and residents with the structure needed to approach individual disease processes. We are indebted to our contributors for their commitment to this task.

The book is intended to be accurate, focused, and readily integrated into practice, rather than being definitive and all encompassing. As in the past, this new edition incorporates new information and approaches to management, while allowing us to modify topics that reflect some of the new challenges we face.

Our goal is to make Rosen and Barkin's 5-Minute Emergency Medicine Consult useful to both novices in emergency medicine and experienced clinicians. The information and organization is designed to be easily used within the “chaos” that surrounds our clinical settings.

Clinical acumen, judgement, and experience are the foundations for our clinical practice. It is our hope that this book will serve students, nurses, emergency medical personnel, residents, and practicing emergency physicians as a readily used resource in excellent patient care and knowledge acquisition.

Acknowledgments

The dedication of our authors and the input of our readers is appreciated and forms the foundation for this book. Ashley Fischer of Lippincott Williams & Wilkins held our hands throughout the production.

To my wife Anna and sons Jacob and Isaac‖thank you for your continued support and inspiration. Thanks to the Cook County Emergency Medicine Attendings and Residents for their contributions to the book and to enhancing my knowledge and understanding of our unique field.

J.J.S.

I am most appreciative for my family's support. Suzanne Barkin, MD is an exemplary clinician and has been a remarkable role model and teacher for the residents she has trained. Adam, Jill, Jacob, Eli, Michael, and Rachael remind us daily of the importance of our roles as clinicians and reaffirm our commitment to excellence.

It is also important to acknowledge and thank our colleagues nationally and internationally who continue to teach each of us on an ongoing basis and will hopefully find this book useful in their practices.

R.M.B.

To my wife Marina, and my children Connor, Maia, and Kenny; without your support and understanding, my involvement in academic emergency medicine and this book would be not possible. To my current residents and past graduates; I hope the information in this book helps guide your clinical decisions and prompts you to always maintain your intellectual curiosity.

S.R.H.

To my wife Alice whose unflagging support, patience, and humor provide the support for these efforts. To the faculty members at BIDMC who share the vision and high standards that this book strives to achieve. To Peter who has been a lifelong mentor and a role model.

R.E.W.

To Jill, Jacob, and Eli who provide so much joy, support, laughter, and love.

A.Z.B.

To my wife Helen for her unending patience, support, guidance, and understanding for her support in allowing me the freedom to work on this book. And to my sons Dylan and David for keeping me grounded to what really matters.

P.S.
