Emergency surgery: Avoid the peek & shriek

Surgical emergencies represent a stressful aspect of daily practice for many of us. These often occur outside normal working hours when less support and assistance are available and patients are often critical, which adds to the stress. Appropriate decision-making and effective action must take place without delay for a successful outcome.
