Description - Principles of Inpatient Psychiatry by Fred Ovsiew

Principles of Inpatient Psychiatry is geared to psychiatrists working in inpatient settings: residents (psychiatrists who occasionally provide inpatient care) and psychiatric "hospitalists" who specialize in the inpatient arena. Inpatient settings contain the sickest psychiatric patients such as those with a high risk of suicide agitation requiring emergency management or treatment-resistant psychosis and depression all topics discussed in the book. Co-morbid general-medical illness is common and the book focuses attention (supported by case examples) on medical and neuropsychiatric as well as general-psychiatric evaluation and management. Chapters address special clinical problems including first-episode psychosis substance abuse eating disorders and legal issues on the inpatient service. The editors bring expertise to bear on a wide range of treatments including psychopharmacologic psychodynamic and milieu approaches.
