Summary A care bundle is a group of specific, non-prescriptive, evidence-based components that, when performed collectively and reliably, have been established to improve patient outcomes. Emergency medicine care bundles support healthcare professionals in providing focused management plans for common presentations. They are explicitly focused on the initial intervention and are specific to the resuscitation and management that precedes in patient care. Care bundles are fundamental to enabling a quick, well-defined response from the emergency care team, whose actions can make a vital difference to a patient's long-term outcome from the first few steps of treatment. Invaluable to both trainees and consultants, Care Bundles in Emergency Medicine uses the specific approach propagated by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement. It is concise yet highly detailed, making use of bullets, ideal for rapid, everyday reference. Each presentation lists the specific care bundle, additional information and considerations if required, and a concluding overview to reinforce key concepts
