There are more than 100 million ER visits every year in this country. Whether that visit is made due to illness or injury, the experience can be unnerving, frightening, and often frustrating. Who are all those people rushing about, and what can we expect from them…and the system? Dr. Ron Clark, an attending emergency physician, delivers important information and keen insight in Surviving the Emergency Room. This is a comprehensive resource designed to answer questions from past ER visits, and to prepare us for future experiences. Dr. Clark explains procedures, suggests questions and requests that can be posed while in the ER, and reminds us that seeking treatment with this knowledge in hand will maximize the experience and even assist in our treatment. From understanding skill levels to being aware of the variety of medical and surgical specialists, from accepting treatment from total strangers to being realistic about what is available, this is the guide that speaks to us all of us.
