Health Services and Mental Health Administration (DHEW), Rockville, MD. Div. of Emergency Health Services.; Medical Society of New Jersey, Trenton.; New Jersey State Dept. of Health, Trenton.
This program was organized in response to the rapidly increasing demands placed upon the emergency departments of general hospitals, and in recognition of the fact that the crucial ingredient in emergency department services is physician capability. The training program was implemented for hospital department physicians and other interested licensed physicians, and utilized lecturers recruited from within the State from appropriate professional associations and schools. This publication provides representative papers on the topics presented, with the intent of stimulating the formation of similar training programs in other states. The topics include: resuscitation of the severely injured patient, including restoration of airway, shock, hemorrhage, and fluid replacement; the unconscious patient; pediatric emergency medical care; treatment of burns; cardio-pulmonary resuscitation; cardiac emergencies; psychiatric emergencies; treatment of multi-system injury; and care of simple wounds.
