Standards of Care in Emergency Medicine stands apart from other references for its detailed approach to the medical circumstances that account for the bulk of emergency medical malpractice claims. You’ll know exactly what standards of care apply in more than 41 of the most commonly litigated emergency situations, from heart attack to stroke, from trauma to adverse drug reaction.

For each case, the authors provide an authoritative account of the medical procedures involved, the diagnostic and treatment options, and decision-making path—even an hour-by-hour timeline of sample cases. The legal side is equally well explained, with case law citations, research tools, and sophisticated analysis, to help you make strategic decisions with confidence.

Standards of Care in Emergency Medicine will help you learn and apply:

  • Fundamental legal principles of malpractice law
  • Basics of emergency medical evaluation and treatment
  • Details of treatment for common medical emergencies
  • Case-specific trial strategy
  • Probable outcome analysis
