Allergy And Anaphylaxis: Principles Of Acute Emergency Management

The emergency clinician must confidently identify anaphylaxis and allergic reactions and implement definitive and rapid interventions.

Endotracheal Intubation In Pediatric Patients Using Video Laryngoscopy: An Evidence-Based Review

Video laryngoscopy involves the utilization of optical and video technology to facilitate indirect visualization of laryngeal structures during intubation. This technology can be advantageous when intubating patients with normal or difficult airways, and it is increasingly being used in the care of patients in the ED. A summary of the existing data on video laryngoscopy use in routine and difficult airways is included, and practical instruction on the use of 3 specific devices approved for use in pediatric patients is provided.

Sepsis In The Hospitalized Patient: Improving Outcomes With Early Identification And Targeted Treatment

With an annual incidence of 650,000 to 750,000 cases of sepsis per year and annual patient expenditures up to $26 billion per year and rising, sepsis is a significant challenge for hospital physicians. Resuscitation and stabilization of the patient are the primary goals of hospital care, and initial management focuses on prompt and appropriate treatment of infection. This issue reviews the latest evidence in risk stratification, treatment, quality measures, and effective coding and charting of sepsis conditions.
