Editorial Reviews

Jeff Dubin
This is the second edition of a case book of ethical problems in emergency medicine. The first edition was published in 1986. The purpose is to help emergency medicine healthcare providers identify and approach ethical problems encountered in their practice. This is an important topic because critical dilemmas arise on a daily basis in emergency departments. This useful book meets the authors' objectives. This book is intended for all members of the emergency medical team, including prehospital workers and hospital administrators. All these workers will benefit from this book. Nevertheless, it is of most importance for emergency physicians, because they often are the team leaders in patient care decisions. The author is a respected expert in bioethics and emergency medicine. The 72 contributors are well regarded in their respective fields of ethics, law, medicine, philosophy, and economics. The book includes a glossary of medical, ethical, and legal terms that may be encountered in the text. The text also includes numerous ethical statements from Hippocrates to the Department of Health and Human Services that are useful to have as references. The bibliography is extensive and is organized to correspond with the ethical categories in the text. This a very good book for all emergency medicine team members, but most importantly for emergency physicians. The case discussions are too detailed to provide immediate answers to ethical problems encountered in the emergency department. However, they are useful in stimulating discussion of important ethical dilemmas in patient care and provide an excellent model for how to resolve the wide variety of ethical problems that arise. Thesecond edition is useful because it expands the case section and discusses emerging ethical problems of managed care and utilization of limited resources.
