Eating Disorders in the ER: Treating the Physical and Emotional Crises

WHAT:  “Eating Disorders in the ER: Treating the Physical and Emotional Crises” discusses how patients with anorexia and bulimia nervosa present to the Emergency Department with a multitude of vague complaints. It is crucial for Emergency Department physicians to recognize that such complaints stem from an underlying eating disorder to understand the pathophysiology behind such complaints. This in turn will lead to appropriate management of patient symptoms, which can often be complex for the provider and stressful for the patient.
