One of the most challenging clinical settings any psychiatrist faces is in the area of psychiatric emergency services. Clinical Manual of Emergency Psychiatry is designed to help medical students, residents, and clinical faculty chart the appropriate course of treatment in a setting where an incorrect assessment can have life and death implications. Written collaboratively by residents, students, and faculty from various departments of psychiatry in the United States and Canada, Clinical Manual of Emergency Psychiatry covers those topics that are generally the most important and practical in any busy psychiatric emergency department. Equally important, the chapters are arranged by chief complaint rather than by psychiatric diagnosis, and each contains an important summary that can provide clarity quickly when seconds count. This format gives the trainee the ability to quickly find key points for treating the clinical situation. In addition, this text serves as a backup to faculty, and combines the approach of accomplished psychiatry trainees with the views of senior practitioners in the field. Trainees working in the high-stress psychiatric emergency setting often only have backup supervision by phone rather than in-person oversight. Evaluation of patients in busy psychiatry emergency departments, where first- and second-year residents are quickly trying to address complicated clinical situations with patients who are very ill, is a challenging and difficult process. In response to the specific demands of the psychiatric emergency setting, the authors, under the editorship of Drs. Michelle B. Riba and Divy Ravindranath, made this manual easy to read and clearly focused on presenting complaints. In Clinical Manual of Emergency Psychiatry, trainees and faculty will find: Case vignettes of applicable clinical scenarios. A reflection of widespread practices in various academic centers. Chapters arranged by chief complaint rather than psychiatric diagnosis. Key point summaries at the end of each chapter. An integrated perspective from trainees and experienced psychiatrists. In addition, many of the chapters in this book underscore the potential for "medical mimics" to cause the presenting complaints, including anxiety, depression, psychosis, catatonia, and cognitive impairment. The recognition that comorbid conditions are often present is critical to the complete assessment of patients in a psychiatric emergency setting. This book is a must-have for any psychiatric trainee or faculty who works in the often tense and high-stakes psychiatric emergency setting. Patients and families are anxious and fearful, and available clinical information may be sparse or unavailable. The guidelines and approaches outlined in this handbook will be useful to psychiatric students and teachers alike as they work to provide excellent care in the difficult clinical psychiatric emergency situations they encounter.

Mental health clinicians who lack internal medicine experience or who do not feel comfortable addressing medical conditions in their patients will find Handbook of Medicine in Psychiatry an indispensable resource. The first evidence-based medical handbook for psychiatrists in training or practice, the book takes the reader through a series of common medical conditions, offering practical information on diagnosis and treatment of life-threatening conditions, as well as management of less serious health issues. For the second edition, the text has been thoroughly updated and restructured. The book is designed to guide clinicians to focus quickly and effectively on managing medical problems in the psychiatric setting. The Handbook offers invaluable content and many helpful features: Coverage of medical emergency management in psychiatric hospitals takes the limitations of the facility into account. For example, the chapters on caring for patients in cardiac arrest or patients in respiratory failure include practical strategies for adapting to the limited resources available in self-standing psychiatric hospitals. The material on life-threatening adverse reactions to psychotropic drugs is completely up-to-date and thorough and includes guidelines for the recognition, prevention, and management of agranulocytosis, ventricular arrhythmias, pancreatitis, neuroleptic malignant syndrome, serotonin syndrome, hyperglycemic emergencies, and airway obstruction. Medical deterioration in psychiatric settings is both common and critical, and the book offers cutting-edge knowledge on assessment procedures and instruments for prediction of acute medical deterioration of psychiatric inpatients. Structured for easy reading and comprehension, the book's topics are grouped into seven parts that address the essential features of clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, stratification of the risk of major complications or death, and the evidence-based approach to management, as applicable in the psychiatric setting. The numerous tables, figures, and flowcharts effectively illustrate important procedures and protocols. Completely updated and streamlined, Handbook of Medicine in Psychiatry stands alone in its completeness, its rigor, and its understanding of the environmental challenges that face the clinician delivering care to patients with serious medical and psychiatric comorbidities.
