Module 16.3: Evidence-Based Management Of Skin And Soft-Tissue Infections In The Emergency Department

August 2016

Module 16.3 Video Excerpt

 

Abstract

Skin and soft-tissue infections are among the most common conditions seen in the emergency department (ED). ED visits for these infections more than doubled between 1993 and 2005, and they currently account for approximately 2% of all ED visits in the United States. This rapid increase in patient visits can be attributed largely to the pervasiveness of community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. The emergence of this disease entity has created a great deal of controversy regarding treatment regimens for skin and soft-tissue infections. This issue focuses on the management of patients with skin and soft-tissue infections, based on the current literature.
