The result is a reference that provides the clinical acumen of a trained gastroenterologist in an easy-to-use format for physicians to approach GI emergencies efficiently and thoroughly. The dual-perspectives blend perfectly together to create a practical, evidence-based read for the learning physician.
In GI Emergencies: A Quick Reference Guide, Dr. Robert C. Lowe and Dr. Francis A. Farraye, along with 20 contributors, help physicians deal with problems as they occur in a "real-time" format.
Some Topics Include:
- Evaluation and management of acute liver failure
- Caustic ingestions, foreign bodies, and food impaction
- Nonvariceal upper GI hemorrhage
- Acute pancreatitis
- Complications of endoscopy
The case-based format is less formal than that of a typical textbook, making it enjoyable without losing the educational value and evidence-based recommendations needed to provide excellent patient care.
With succinct key teaching points, GI Emergencies: A Quick Reference Guide assists physicians who are training interns, residents, and medical students in training, making it an all-around reference for those in the gastroenterology field.

"GI Emergencies: A Quick Reference Guide is ideally suited for gastroenterology fellows but is also valuable for residents, students, and staff who may care for patients in the midst of a GI emergency and need efficient access to clinical guidance, such as members of an inpatient primary or consult service as well as those in the emergency department. It is organized to be a quick and reasonably complete reference to the management of GI emergencies. It is a perfectly suited, in size and in content, to fit into the pocket of your coat to aid and educate as you help your patient. For this reason, I highly recommend it."
-Dennis P. Collins, MD, University of Florida, Practical Gastroenterology
