  1. Interobserver agreement in assessment of clinical variables in children with blunt head trauma.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 15(9):812 (2008) PMID 19244631

    To be useful in development of clinical decision rules, clinical variables must demonstrate acceptable agreement when assessed by different observers. The objective was to determine the interobserver agreement in the assessment of historical and physical examination findings of children undergoi...
  2. Echocardiographic evaluation of a TASER-X26 application in the ideal human cardiac axis.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 15(9):838 (2008) PMID 19244634

    TASER electronic control devices (ECDs) are used by law enforcement to subdue aggressive persons. Some deaths temporally proximate to their use have occurred. There is speculation that these devices can cause dangerous cardiac rhythms. Swine research supports this hypothesis and has reported sig...

  6. Direct comparison of the diagnostic accuracy of fifty protein biological markers of pulmonary embolism for use in the emergency department.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 15(9):795 (2008) PMID 19244629

    Pulmonary embolism (PE) is associated with abnormal concentrations of many proteins involved in inflammation, hemostasis, and vascular injury. The authors quantified the diagnostic accuracy of a battery of protein biological markers for the detection of PE in emergency department (ED) patients. ...
  7. Pediatric emergency department overcrowding and impact on patient flow outcomes.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 15(9):832 (2008) PMID 18821860

    Understanding the impact of overcrowding in pediatric emergency departments (PEDs) on quality of care is a growing concern. Boarding admitted patients in the PED and increasing emergency department (ED) visits are two potentially significant factors affecting quality of care. The objective was t...
  8. The effect of emergency department crowding on patient satisfaction for admitted patients.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 15(9):825 (2008) PMID 19244633

    The objective was to study the association between factors related to emergency department (ED) crowding and patient satisfaction. The authors performed a retrospective cohort study of all patients admitted through the ED who completed Press-Ganey patient satisfaction surveys over a 2-year perio...
  9. What is in your coat pocket? Are academic emergency medicine faculty for sale?

    Academic Emergency Medicine 15(9):853 (2008) PMID 19244636

  10. Olanzapine versus droperidol for the treatment of primary headache in the emergency department.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 15(9):806 (2008) PMID 19244630

    The objective was to determine if there is a difference in pain relief or frequency and severity of side effects in emergency department (ED) patients with primary headache treated with either intramuscular (IM) olanzapine or IM droperidol. This was a prospective, randomized nonblinded clinical ...
  11. Mechanical ventilation was associated with acidemia in a case series of salicylate-poisoned patients.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 15(9):866 (2008) PMID 18821862

    Despite little empiric evidence, mechanical ventilation (MV) in the setting of salicylate poisoning is considered by many to be harmful. When salicylate-poisoned patients are ventilated at conventional settings, the respiratory alkalosis is abolished, more salicylate is able to pass into the cen...
  12. Eight hours of hypotensive versus normotensive resuscitation in a porcine model of controlled hemorrhagic shock.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 15(9):845 (2008) PMID 19244635

    The aim of this study was to compare hypotensive and normotensive resuscitation in a porcine model of hemorrhagic shock. This was a prospective, comparative, randomized survival study of controlled hemorrhagic shock using 28 male Yorkshire-Landrace pigs (15 to 25 kg). In 24 splenectomized pigs, ...
  13. International emergency medicine: a review of the literature from 2007.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 15(9):860 (2008) PMID 18821861

    The subspecialty of international emergency medicine (IEM) continues to grow within the United States, just as the specialty of emergency medicine (EM) continues to spread to both developed and developing countries around the world. One of the greatest obstacles, however, faced by IEM researcher...
  14. Tandem measurement of D-dimer and myeloperoxidase or C-reactive protein to effectively screen for pulmonary embolism in the emergency department.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 15(9):800 (2008) PMID 18821859

    The hypothesis was that the tandem measurement of D-dimer and myeloperoxidase (MPO) or C-reactive protein (CRP) could significantly decrease unnecessary pulmonary vascular imaging in emergency department (ED) patients evaluated for pulmonary embolism (PE) compared to D-dimer alone. The authors m...
  15. Academic emergency medicine faculty and industry relationships.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 15(9):819 (2008) PMID 19244632

    The authors surveyed the membership of the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM) about their associations with industry and predictors of those associations. A national Web-based survey inviting faculty from the active member list of SAEM was conducted. Follow-up requests for participat...
