Product Title
An Evidence-Based Approach To Diagnosis And Management Of Subarachnoid Hemorrhage In The Emergency Department (Stroke CME)
Oct 2014
This review evaluates the literature and current evidence, including controversies and recent American Heart Association guidelines, to support a best-practice approach to the diagnosis and treatment of patients with spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage.
Managing Pacemaker-Related Complications And Malfunctions In The Emergency Department (Cardiovascular CME)
Sep 2014
This review summarizes current indications for permanent pacing, reviews epidemiologic data relevant to implant complications, and describes a clinical approach to the patient with potential pacing malfunction.
Syncope: Risk Stratification And Clinical Decision Making
Apr 2014
This issue reviews the most relevant evidence for managing and risk stratifying the syncope patient, beginning with a focused history, physical examination, electrocardiogram, and tailored diagnostic testing.
Emergency Department Management Of Calcium-Channel Blocker, Beta Blocker, And Digoxin Toxicity
Feb 2014
This review provides an evidence- based overview of the emergency department management of calcium-channel blocker overdose, beta blocker overdose, and digoxin toxicity.
An Evidence-Based Approach To Acute Aortic Syndromes
Dec 2013
This issue of Emergency Medicine Practice will discuss nontraumat- ic aortic dissection and its anatomic variants, intra- mural hematoma and penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer. A review of the pathophysiology, risk factors, and appropriate imaging for aortic dissection will be discussed. Treatment options, both surgical and nonsurgical, will also be reviewed, including new noninvasive management techniques.
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. Additionally, this review discusses rarely encountered-yet highly lethal-chest wall injuries such as blunt cardiac injuries, commotio cordis, nonaccidental trauma, and aortic injuries.
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. Underlying etiologies that may accompany these conduction abnormalities are discussed, including bradydysrhythmias that are reflex mediated (including trauma induced) and those with metabolic, environmental, infectious, and toxicologic causes. 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.
An Evidence-Based Approach To Electrical Injuries In Children (Trauma CME)
Sep 2013
This month's issue of Pediatric Emergency Medicine Practice will address the management of electrical injuries in the pediatric patient.
Atrial Fibrillation: Management Strategies In The Emergency Department
Feb 2013
This review examines the recent literature on the diagnosis and management of atrial fibrillation.
Transient Ischemic Attack: An Evidence-Based Update (Stroke CME)
Jan 2013
Since the 2008 issue of Emergency Medicine Practice on TIA was published, there have been numerous studies focusing on improving risk stratification and early management strategies in TIA. This update will provide the best available evidence on diagnosing and managing TIAs.
The Emergency Medicine Approach To The Evaluation And Treatment Of Pulmonary Embolism
Dec 2012
This issue presents a review of the current evidence guiding the emergency medicine approach to the diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary embolism.
Traumatic Hemorrhagic Shock: Advances In Fluid Management (Trauma CME)
Nov 2011
This issue of Emergency Medicine Practice focuses on advances in knowledge that should fundamentally change how we treat trauma patients in hemorrhagic shock. The best available evidence from the literature suggests that we must shift away from the paradigms that have guided emergency clinicians in the past.
Evidence-Based Management Of Sickle Cell Disease In The Emergency Department
Aug 2011
This issue of Emergency Medicine Practice presents a synopsis of the latest evidence regarding the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of emergent complications of SCD.
Current Evidence In Therapeutic Hypothermia For Postcardiac Arrest Care
Apr 2011
Cardiac arrest is one of the most intense clinical scenarios faced by the emergency clinician. The challenges are twofold: restarting spontaneous circulation and simultaneously attempting to find;and then reverse;the cause of the cardiac arrest.
An Evidence-Based Approach To Emergency Ultrasound
Mar 2011
This issue of Emergency Medicine Practice expands on this review and summarizes the existing and best available literature concerning these EUS applications.
Evaluation And Management Of Non-ST-Segment Elevation Acute Coronary Syndromes In The Emergency Department
Jan 2010
This issue of Emergency Medicine Practice will focus on the initial evaluation and treatment of patients with NSTE-ACS in the ED and on the most recent literature pertaining to the acute care of these patients.
The Diagnosis And Treatment Of STEMI In The Emergency Department
Jun 2009
This issue of Emergency Medicine Practice focuses on the management of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in the ED setting using evidence-based practice as well as using a methodological approach to patients with chest pain who are at high risk of infarction.
An Evidence-Based Approach To Supraventricular Tachydysrhythmias
Apr 2008
This issue of Emergency Medicine Practice will provide a review of SVTs with a focus on the ECG analysis and the evidence behind the most recent ACLS guidelines.
Pediatric And Adolescent Chest Pain
Aug 2007
The skilled emergency clinician will not dismiss the complaint of chest pain because of the impression that it is rarely serious. While it is true that most children complaining of chest pain do not have a life-threatening condition, there are notable exceptions. The mandate of the emergency physician is to identify the child with a life-threatening condition in a sea of benignity. The purpose of this article, therefore, is to present an overview of the many causes of chest pain in children which should be considered, even if most can be excluded through a careful history and physical exam.
The Evaluation And Management of Pediatric Cardiac Tachyarrhythmias: An Evidenced-Based Approach
Jun 2006
In this issue of Pediatric Emergency Medicine PRACTICE, we will review an evidence-based approach to the evaluation and management of children with tachyarrhythmias.
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.
Pediatric Out-of-Hospital Cardiopulmonary Arrest And Public Access Defibrillation Programs For Children
Sep 2005
