  Title Life-threatening conditions that walk: A clinician's review
Journal JACA Online. 2013 Sep-Oct;50(5):Online access only p 8-17
Peer Review No
Publication Type Article
Chiropractors are hybrid physicians with a broad skill set. DCs need the diagnostic acumen of orthopedists and neurologists, a fine manual therapist’s hands, a psychologist’s insights, and the capacity to instantly respond to the unexpected. As front-line health care professionals, we may find ourselves serving as ER physicians. When a previously undiagnosed life-threatening condition shows up, we must recognize the problem and triage the patient appropriately. This article will review the six most common undiagnosed life-threatening conditions encountered by chiropractors. 
[The 6 conditions described are: 1. Cancer; 2. Abdominal aortic aneurysm; 3. Venous thromboembolism; 4. Stroke; 5. Myocardial infarction; 6. Subdural hematoma.]
