Description

Written by authors who are hospitalists and clinician-educators, Cases in Hospital Medicine uses practical case studies and current medical evidence to guide you expertly through the types of cases seen most often by practicing hospital-based clinicians.

This engaging handbook covers the wide range of both broad and specific knowledge required in the hospital environment, while focusing on highly relevant questions and today’s best practices. You’ll find real-world guidance on essential topics, including commentary on research studies and clinical guidelines.

Key Features:

  • Provides an evidence-based approach to clinical cases most often encountered by hospitalists, including the key questions in these situations, such as:
    • What sort of diuretic regimen—bolus or continuous infusion—should I use to remove fluid from a 73-year-old man with acute congestive heart failure?
    • How soon should a 49-year-old woman with gallstone pancreatitis undergo prophylactic cholecystectomy?
    • What are the risks and benefits of continuing aspirin therapy perioperatively in patients undergoing noncardiac surgery?
    • What is the optimal anti-inflammatory agent for a 60-year-old man with acute gouty arthritis?
  • Maintains a clinical focus throughout, discussing the most practice-relevant questions for hospital-based clinicians and providing answers to specific clinical dilemmas.
  • Covers a wide variety of frequently-seen situations such as skin and soft tissue infection, pneumonia, alcohol withdrawal, sepsis, COPD exacerbation, syncope, atrial fibrillation, pancreatitis, acute kidney injury, end-of-life care, and much more.
