About this book

Developed by renowned experts, this comprehensive and easy to read title offers a state-of-the-art description of the management of endocrine, diabetic, and metabolic emergencies and brings the field fully up to date, setting a high standard for diagnosis and treatment in each category. All chapters begin with a summary that presents, in concentrated form, what the physician needs to know to begin the evaluation and emergency treatment of the known endocrine emergencies. This is followed by an extended discussion of the pathophysiology that can be read after initial treatment has begun. Covering such areas as hypoglycemia, acute adrenal insufficiency, ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, thyroid storm, and pituitary apoplexy, just to name several, Endocrine Emergencies: Recognition and Treatment is an invaluable, practical resource that will be of great interest to endocrinologists, internal medicine and emergency room physicians, fellows and residents.

About the authors

Lynn Loriaux, MD, PhD, Oregon Health Sciences University, Portland, OR, USA


“This is a thorough overview of metabolic, diabetic, and endocrine emergencies. … The book is very readable and would be appropriate for almost any medical student or practitioner. Because it covers a narrow topic, it would be most appropriate for those with a particular interest in endocrinology. … There are a number of tables, images, and drawings to illustrate key concepts.” (Michael D. Zwank, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2015)
