Aortic Emergencies Part II: Abdominal Aneurysms And Aortic Trauma
Mar 2006
This month's issue of Emergency Medicine Practice is the second in a 2-part review of aortic emergencies. The first part focused on the thoracic aorta and emphasized the pivotal role the emergency physician plays in diagnosing and directing care for these patients. This month's issue reviews abdominal aortic aneurysms and aortic trauma. While aortic emergencies are relatively unusual in the total scope of emergency practice, their associated morbidity and mortality is high, making recognition and management a mandatory competency for the emergency physician.

Tachyarrhythmias In The ED: Best Evidence
Feb 2003
Cardiac tachyarrhythmias, like no other malady seen in the ED, can impart a sense of doom to patients and physicians alike. While proper therapy can be lifesaving, inappropriate interventions can be deadly. The American Heart Association's 2000 ACLS guidelines provide a framework for the acute management of tachyarrhythmias and, unlike previous iterations of the ACLS guidelines, were derived by international consensus and based on critical analysis of the literature. While these guidelines are a vast improvement over the relatively unsubstantiated guidelines of the past, the U.S. physician must recognize that some recommended agents are either unavailable or are not FDA-approved in the United States. This edition of Emergency Medicine Practice reviews the diagnosis of tachyarrhythmias and uses an evidence-based approach to current management.
