Emergency Medicine Practice

 An Evidence-Based Approach To Managing Asymptomatic Elevated Blood Pressure In The Emergency Department 

United States emergency departments report > 900,000 annual visits for hypertension-related complaints. These patients are at risk for long-term morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular, ocular, and neurological consequences, but you can reduce these risks by differentiating hypertensive emergency from poorly controlled chronic hypertension, choosing the appropriate pharmacologic treatment, and implementing the best disposition and follow-up.

Pediatric EM Practice

Evidence-Based Management Of Skin And Soft-Tissue Infections In Pediatric Patients In The Emergency Department 

Skin and soft-tissue infections are among the most common conditions seen in children in the emergency department. The emergence of community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus has created controversy regarding treatment regimens for these infections. This issue of Pediatric Emergency Medicine Practice focuses on effective treatment based on the latest evidence and guidelines.

"Excellent reviews in both pediatric and adult EM situations. It provides an excellent update/review of the EM practice and provides significant CME hours without leaving home. I have retained every copy I have received for the past 5 or so years. The reviews are always up-to-date and accurate and readily applicable to my daily practice. The flow charts are used in my ED every day." -- Stephen Shy, DO, MBA, Huntington, WV
