One of the profound implications of the terrorist attacks of 9/11 is that considerably greater public policy attention was needed to protect the homeland and provide a focused governmental response to emergency situations that arise due to natural disasters, terrorism, or even criminal activities. The most notable government reaction to 9/11 was the creation of the Department of Homeland Security through the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (Homeland Security, 2011). This new cabinet-level agency was created through the integration of all or part of 22 different federal departments and agencies (Homeland Security, 2011).
This book is written for physicians who work within an emergency department or urgent care setting to provide them with a treatment plan for those patients who are deemed not to have an emergency medical situation and can be safely treated as an outpatient. Emergency physicians (EPs) see a wide variety of patients and ostensibly for emergency reasons. However, many patients present to the emergency department for primary care-related reasons due to multiple factors or are diagnosed with potentially chronic problems that require a primary care intervention.

Considering the success of the first edition of this book, I wondered what important elements could or should be added to the second edition to make it even better.

So, what could be added to make the book even better? Well, to make sure the book addresses the needs of physician–educators from all over the world, chapters on lecturing to an international audience, using simulation as a teaching tool, how to make journal club work for you, and many other topics were added to the book.

This essential handbook provides a practical, accessible guide to all emergency situations encountered in the critical care setting. Emergencies are very common in the critical care setting and this book helps critical care staff identify patients at risk, how to manage them, and be prepared. To help the reader find advice quickly, most chapters begin with a generic description of how to manage emergencies affecting that system, or patient group. This is followed by details of specific diagnoses and how they should be managed. The author team, where possible, follow the ‘ABC’ approach, which is not only the standard approach to emergency management,
