"(GI Emergencies) has a unique, conversational style that takes the
reader from the first telephone consultation through patient
evaluation, differential diagnosis, laboratory testing, and
management of common gastrointestinal emergencies. This book is
useful for entry level gastroenterology fellows during the initial
portion of their fellowship; it may be more useful for emergency
room and intensive care unit trainees of all levels."
-C. Prakash Gyawali, Washington University School of Medicine, Gastroenterology
"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."
