I would like to respond to the article entitled "A Practical Approach to the Assessment and Management of Psychiatric Emergencies" (Jefferson Journal of Psychiatry, Vol. 7:8 I-9 1, 1989). The authors are to be congratulated for their concise distillation of the major clinical problems encountered in emergency psychiatry. However, there are several aspects of this review which require further amplification and clarification.
