An immediate reference for when unexpected gastrointestinal emergencies occur This book provides invaluable guidance for the physician or surgeon when they encounter a patient with a gastrointestinal emergency - either during a procedure or when a patient has been stabilised by the emergency team and then admitted to the care of the gastroenterology team. It provides a practical, up-to-date guide and immediate reference for the physician or surgeon in the management of commonly presenting GI emergencies. This edition comprises three sections using the symptom based approach, which gives a quick overview of the initial presenting complaint before reading detailed sections on specific problems. It covers procedures for avoiding and managing specific conditions, particularly difficulties after endoscopy procedures - including the latest techniques. It also offers clear and succinct advice relevant to all those working on general medical and surgical units and predominantly those in specialist gastroenterology areas.
