  1. Differential survival for men and women from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest varies by age: results from the OPALS study.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 21(12):1503 (2014) PMID 25491713

    The effect of sex on survival in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is controversial. Some studies report more favorable outcomes in women, while others suggest the opposite, citing disparities in care. Whether sex predicts differential age-specific survival is still uncertain. The objective was...
  2. Ten Signs That You Are an Emergency Medicine Parent

    Academic Emergency Medicine 16(12):1388 (2009) PMID 19912130

  3. Effect of intubation for gamma-hydroxybutyric acid overdose on emergency department length of stay and hospital admission.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 21(11):1226 (2014) PMID 25377399

    The objective was to examine the effect of endotracheal intubation on emergency department (ED) length of stay (LOS) and admission rates for patients with gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB) overdose. A 3-year retrospective electronic and paper audit of recreational drug presentations was carried out at two...
  4. National Institutes of Health support for individual mentored career development grants in emergency medicine.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 21(11):1269 (2014) PMID 25377405

    Individual mentored career (K) awards made by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are an important way for medical researchers to develop their research skills. This study determined the number of individual mentored (K) awards awarded to emergency medicine (EM) faculty over a 6-year period and...
  5. Are discharge prescriptions of opioids from the emergency department truly rising?

    Academic Emergency Medicine 21(8):946 (2014) PMID 25156157

  6. Measuring numeracy and health literacy in the emergency department.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 21(8):944 (2014) PMID 25156278

  7. Interprofessional education and collaboration: a call to action for emergency medicine.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 21(7):833 (2014) PMID 25125274

  8. Rapid response team activations within 24 hours of admission from the emergency department: an innovative approach for performance improveme...

    Academic Emergency Medicine 21(6):667 (2014) PMID 25039551

    Performance improvement programs in emergency medicine (EM) have evolved beyond peer reviews of referred cases and now encompass a large set of quality metrics that are measured proactively. However, peer review of cases continues to be an important element of performance improvement, and selection...
  9. Role of autophagy and apoptosis in wound tissue of deep second-degree burn in rats.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 21(4):383 (2014) PMID 24730400 PMCID PMC4114170

    The pathogenesis of burn wound progression is poorly understood. Contributing factors include continuous loss of blood perfusion, excessive inflammation, and elevated apoptosis levels in wound tissue. Macroautophagy (here referred to simply as "autophagy") is associated with many chronic diseases. T...
  10. The association between pretest probability of coronary artery disease and stress test utilization and outcomes in a chest pain observation ...

    Academic Emergency Medicine 21(4):401 (2014) PMID 24730402

    I consistent with consensus guidelines. A true-positive stress test was defined by evidence of reversible ischemia and subsequent angiographic evidence of critical stenosis or a discharge diagnosis of ACS. An estimated 3,500 patients would be necessary to have 1% precision around a potential 0.3% ev...
