This resource combines video and digital components to review the evaluation and management of stroke in the setting of life-threatening headaches and dizziness, as well as stroke in pediatric patients.

  • Life-threatening secondary headache can be due to vascular disorders or trauma, and they can present with sudden, severe onset. This course presents the red flag signs for the most dangerous causes, with recommendations on swift imaging and treatment. In addition, it covers special considerations for patients presenting with headache in the COVID-19 era.
  • Although dizziness is common in the ED, there is incomplete understanding of the fundamentals of physical examination findings in dizzy patients. By using this new “timing-and-triggers” approach instead of the old “what do you mean, ‘dizzy?’” approach, you can more confidently make the correct diagnosis and ensure that patients with central causes of dizziness receive appropriate care quickly.
  • This resource also reviews the most common causes of pediatric stroke, provides guidance for distinguishing stroke from stroke mimics, discusses the indications for diagnostic studies, and offers evidence-based recommendations for treatment in the emergency department.
  • It includes 14.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Included as part of the 14.5 credits, this CME activity is eligible for 11.5 Stroke CME credits and 1.25 Pharmacology CME credits. CME expires on 12/01/2022.

Included in this program:

  1. Three evidence-based courses delivered in online and PDF formats, reviewing stroke in the setting of life-threatening headaches and dizziness, as well as stroke in pediatric patients.
  2. An episode of the EMplify podcast for an audio summary of the life-threatening headaches course
  3. Two on-demand webinar courses taking a deeper dive into the topics of life-threatening headaches and dizziness
  4. 14.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, including 11.5 Stroke CME credits and 1.25 Pharmacology CME credits

Modules

Course 1: Evaluation and Management of Life-Threatening Headaches in the Emergency Department + EMplify podcast audio summary

Though patients often present to the ED seeking relief from headaches that cause significant pain and suffering, 90% of them can be considered “benign.” It is essential to identify the 10% of headache patients who are in danger of having a life-threatening disorder presenting with a sudden and severe headache to ensure that they are treated quickly and effectively. Life-threatening secondary headache can be due to vascular disorders or trauma, and they can present with sudden, severe onset. This course presents the red flag signs for the most dangerous causes, with recommendations on swift imaging and treatment. In addition, it covers special considerations for patients presenting with headache in the COVID-19 era. This course also includes an episode of the EMplify podcast for audio review.

Course 2: The Timing-and-Triggers Approach to the Patient With Acute Dizziness

Although dizziness is common in the ED, there is incomplete understanding of the fundamentals of physical examination findings in dizzy patients. This course presents a new “timing-and-triggers” approach instead of the old “what do you mean, ‘dizzy?’” approach, allowing you to more confidently make the correct diagnosis and ensure that patients with central causes of dizziness receive appropriate care quickly.

CME Credits: 4 (includes 2 Stroke credits)

Video 2: The Timing-and-Triggers Approach to the Patient With Acute Dizziness

In this video presentation, Dr. Edward Sloan, of the Dominican University in Illinois and UIC Emergency Medicine, takes the learner step by step through the Timing and Triggers approach, and gives tips for immediately applying this to practice.

Course 3: Pediatric Stroke: Diagnosis and Management in the Emergency Department - Stroke EXTRA Supplement

Stroke is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in children. The etiologies, risk factors, and presentation of stroke differ from those of adults, and the diagnosis of stroke is often delayed in children. The management of pediatric stroke can be challenging because there are few data to support the efficacy of interventions. This course reviews the most common causes of pediatric stroke, provides guidance for distinguishing stroke from stroke mimics, discusses the indications for diagnostic studies, and offers evidence-based recommendations for treatment in the emergency department.

CME Credits: 4 (includes 4 Stroke and 0.25 Pharmacology credits)
