In an era of increasing reliance on practice guidelines, protocols, committee opinion pieces, clinical decision rules, and meta-analyses, it is refreshing to read a thoughtful review of a topic that teases out the details of the evidence behind specific recommendations. Furthermore, when I write or edit a detailed review like the ones presented in this volume, I’m frequently amazed by what wonderful little articles there are in the medical literature that for whatever reason never quite get the attention that they may deserve. Alternatively, I’m similarly stunned by the far-reaching impact that other articles (some of which have actually been misinterpreted) have on everyday clinical practice. These reviews should help put all of these factors into perspective.
The articles selected for this volume focus on topics that impact the daily practice of emergency physicians.Being adept at handling neonatal problems, fever, abdominal pain, and critical illness or coma in young children is essential to making it through a week of shifts in most EDs. In this volume, the major controversies for each of these common topics are brought forward, discussed, and critically reviewed. – Lance Brown, MD, MPH, FACEP
