Emergency Management Of Blunt Chest Trauma In Children: An Evidence-Based Approach (Trauma CME)
Nov 2013
This review examines the effects of blunt trauma to the pediatric chest, as well as its relevant etiologies and associated mortality. Diagnostic and treatment options for commonly encountered injuries such as pulmonary contusions, rib fractures, and pneumothoraces are examined.

Evaluation And Management Of Bradydysrhythmias In The Emergency Department
Sep 2013
This review presents the electrocardiographic findings seen in common bradydysrhythmias and emphasizes prompt recognition of these patterns.

Evidence regarding the management of bradydysrhythmias in the emergency department is limited; however, there are data to guide the approach to the unstable bradycardic patient. When decreased end-organ perfusion is present, the use of atropine, beta agonists, and transcutaneous or transvenous pacing may be required.
