Case-based for the most effective learning and retention, this book helps emergency physicians sharpen their analytical skills to improve patient safety. The illustrative cases educate emergency physicians in documentation, risk management, and evaluation and management of common emergency department complaints and diagnoses. Although patients in these cases were not entirely mismanaged, often important “red flags” were missed or ignored.

The cases are structured to provide high learning impact and cover: documentation of initial visits; expert commentary on evaluation and documentation from medical and risk management perspectives; final emergency department visits, diagnosis, and hospital/surgical courses; and national experts’ referenced discussions of appropriate emergency department approaches to diagnosis and management.
