The emergent care of the acutely ill psychiatric patient continues to grow in importance, as reports of incidences of suicide, suicidal ideation and violent behavior amongst this patient population unfortunately continues to increase. A great deal has also occurred in the area of psychopharmacology for the treatment of these conditions, with advances in the development of new ere classes of more effective, non-sedating antipsychotic and mood altering drugs. Issue related to emergent care in the training and education of psychiatrists also plays an important role. Those matriculating through residency programs in psychiatry are faced with managing emergency situations on a daily basis in every year of their training and clinical rotation. The ability to utilize this experience in the preparation and taking of boards has a significant impact toward successfully becoming accredited as well, as nearly 30% of the questions on the exam are related to the management of emergency situations.
Hillard's "Emergency Psychiatry" comprehensively covers all of the clinical management strategies that potentially need to be employed to successfully diagnose and treat patients who either are of danger to themselves or others. The full spectrum of disorders is covered in detail, including debilitating stages of depression, anxiety and anger that potentially leads to violent behavior. A diagnostic and treatment algoritm is included for each disorder and tables of salient diagnostic features and differential diagnoses are prominent throughout.
