Every gathering of people has potential for disaster. Whether it is a traumatic event like a mass shooting, or a more pedestrian practical problem like icy walkways; proper planning can help protect you from liability as well as ensure the success of your event. Crowd control is a security concern that directly affects your ability to provide emergency medical services. <br /><br />Emergency Medical Planning for Large Venues is a practical guide to being prepared. This book, written in a readable, casual style, is geared towards event planners, law enforcement, private security, property owners/managers and medical service providers alike. <br /><br />With easy to follow charts and the no-nonsense, experienced attitude of someone who has been involved in events that have been done properly and improperly, Di Giorgio teaches you what to do and what not to do and, most importantly, what questions you should be asking yourself. <br /><br />He takes some of the more (in)famous cases like the Pulse Nightclub Shooting and the Las Vegas, Madalay Bay shooting, and extracts the lessons to be learned from those disasters. He also analyses lesser known real-life examples and uses them as teachable moments. <br /><br />Di Giorgio’s previous book, “Legal Considerations for Tactical Medical Responders” has been lauded as a “must read” that fills in the gaps of other first responder training. This book, written in the same vein, is an absolute necessity for any individual or agency wishing to ensure the safety and comfort of attendees of large venues and crowds to avoid unnecessary liability. <br /><br />

Product Description
Customer Reviews
<DIV>On average, a physician will interrupt a patient describing her symptoms within eighteen seconds. In that short time, many doctors decide on the likely diagnosis and best treatment. Often, decisions made this way are correct, but at crucial moments they can also be wrong -- with catastrophic consequences. In this myth-shattering book, Jerome Groopman pinpoints the forces and thought processes behind the decisions doctors make. Groopman explores why doctors err and shows when and how they can -- with our help -- avoid snap judgments, embrace uncertainty, communicate effectively, and deploy other skills that can profoundly impact our health. This book is the first to describe in detail the warning signs of erroneous medical thinking and reveal how new technologies may actually hinder accurate diagnoses. How Doctors Think offers direct, intelligent questions patients can ask their doctors to help them get back on track.<br /><br />Groopman draws on a wealth of research, extensive interviews with some of the country’s best doctors, and his own experiences as a doctor and as a patient. He has learned many of the lessons in this book the hard way, from his own mistakes and from errors his doctors made in treating his own debilitating medical problems.<br /><br />How Doctors Think reveals a profound new view of twenty-first-century medical practice, giving doctors and patients the vital information they need to make better judgments together.</div>

The Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) has become the preferred interview format at many health professions programs and medical schools. Applicants seeking admission to these schools face considerable anxiety preparing for these interviews because of a lack of resources available for guidance. Our detailed advice, based on evidence from research in the field and perspectives of admissions faculty, will provide you with the insiders' perspective. Inside-<br /><br />How can you best prepare for the MMI? What is required to deliver a winning interview performance? <br />The MMI was developed to measure specific non-cognitive qualities that schools have deemed important. What are these qualities, and how can students emphasize them during interviews?<br />Which behaviors, attitudes, and answers are prized by interviewers? <br />In one study, 10% of interviewees rated the MMI as worse than the traditional interview. What were their concerns?<br />At one school, 12% of interviewed candidates received a "Do Not Recommend" rating each year. What are the behaviors and attitudes that lead schools to reject applicants?<br />What is "assessor fatigue," and how can it affect your MMI score?<br />Your interview score will depend heavily on your communication skills. What are the common communication problems encountered during the MMI?<br />How can you use the limited time that you have at each station to deliver memorable and impressive responses that stand out?<br />Includes sample answers to MMI questions and advice to help you avoid common mistakes<br /><br />Utilizing a unique combination of evidence-based advice and an insiders' perspective, this book will help you achieve your ultimate goal.

<i>This is an electronically scanned version of a preserved 1883 edition of this title.</i><br /><br />"The spondylolisthetic pelvis is that deformity which results from disease in the lumbar vertebrae or spine bones at the small of the back. The spine bones become softened, and then slip forward into the pelvis, see fig. 7. The spine bones marked 4 and 5 are the fourth and fifth lumbar spine bones. The dotted line shows the measurement of the new conjugate diameter resulting from the dropping into the pelvis of the fourth and fifth lumbar vertebra. This distortion is extremely rare."
