A new book titled ‘Emergencies in Medical Practice’ was launched on Sunday, 26th February 2023. The book aims to provide medical professionals with the knowledge and skills to handle common medical emergencies that they may encounter in their daily clinical practice. The launch event was held at a five-star hotel and was attended by several dignitaries, including Swami Satyeshananda Ji Maharaj of Ramkrishna Mission, Belur Math, and Dr. Debasis Bhattacharyya, Director of Medical Education at the Department of Health & Family Welfare, Government of West Bengal. Dr. Om Tantia, Dr. Aruna Tantia, Dr. Ghanshyam Goyal, and Dr. Prof Tamonas Chaudhuri were also present at the book release event.
The book, dedicated to the memory of medical professionals who lost their lives during the recent Covid-19 pandemic, was edited by Dr. Om Tantia and Dr. Ghanshyam Goyal under the guidance of Prof. Sukumar Mukherjee. The book is a collaborative effort of 65 renowned faculties from various disciplines and departments, and each of the 43 chapters has been scrutinized by a 12-member editorial board.
“The book comprises 43 chapters focusing on various emergencies and emphasizing the initial management of the patient before a specialist arrives on the scene. The Editorial team and contributors are hopeful that ‘Emergencies in Medical Practice’ will be a handy manual for medical professionals of all disciplines,” said Dr. Om Tantia, MS, FRCS (Eng), FICS, FACS, FAIS, FMAS, Consultant Bariatric & Metabolic Surgeon, ILS Hospitals.
“The highlight of the book is that each author is an authority in their respective field. The fountainhead for it was the all-encompassing idea that while medical professionals are only too familiar with their area of specialization, many of them feel challenged when called upon to deal with an emergency outside their domain. This book would be a great help to all of them.” said Dr Ghanshyam Goyal, MBBS, MD (Medicine) Head-Department of Diabetology ILS Hospitals, Specialist in Diabetic Foot Management.
