Acute critical medical situations are termed “emergencies,” or “complications” (Atlee 2007; Gravenstein and Kirby 1995; Taylor and Major 1987), or “crises” (Gaba et al. 1994). The major emphasis of this perspective lies on the clinical picture of an emergency and on the knowledge and skills necessary to manage it. , Kohn et al. 1999; Rosenthal and Sutcliffe 2002; Vincent 2002).
