Stroke Update 2007: Better Early Stroke Treatment (BEST)
Aug 2007
Since the article on stroke published in Emergency Medicine Practice in 1999, several new trials and studies have been conducted. There has also been an increased awareness of the critical role played by emergency medicine in improving outcomes, and there has been increased experience in diagnostic imaging and therapeutic interventions.

Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: What To Do When There Is Nothing (Obviously) Wrong
Aug 2005
This issue of Emergency Medicine Practice focuses on the challenge of evaluating and managing the patient with "mild" head trauma using the best available evidence from the literature. While excellent published guidelines do exist to help the clinician navigate these murky waters, it is the appropriate application of such guidelines that constitutes the art of emergency medicine. Particularly useful in this arena is ACEP's practice guideline for mild TBI.4 A summary is presented in Table 1.

Transient Ischemic Attacks: Transient Trouble Or Action-Warranted Attacks?
Oct 2003
Atransient ischemic attack (TIA) is a neurologic deficit caused by ischemia to the brain that, by classic definition, completely resolves within 24 hours. Although there is complete resolution of signs and symptoms, the incident is understandably alarming for the patient and his or her family, raising numerous questions and sometimes panicked responses. In contrast, because patients are usually asymptomatic by the time they present to the ED, many physicians are "underwhelmed" by the situation and do not react with appropriate immediacy.
Weakness: A Systematic Approach To Acute, Non-traumatic, Neurologic And Neuromuscular Causes
Dec 2002
Weakness possibly represents the quintessential nonspecific ED complaint. Simply elucidating what a patient means by "weakness" can be challenging. Perhaps the only more vexing complaint than weakness is the combination of weakness and its equally frustrating companion - "dizziness." (See also the March 2001 issue of Emergency Medicine Practice, "The Dizzy Patient: An Evidence-Based Diagnosis And Treatment Strategy.") Having a systematic approach greatly reduces the angst associated with this common ED complaint.
