Negative predictive value of acetaminophen concentrations within four hours of ingestion.
We do not recommend reliance on concentrations obtained between 1 and 4 hours to exclude toxicity, because of a potential false-negative rate of 6.5%. © 2013 by the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine....
Comparison of intravenous lipid emulsion, bicarbonate, and tailored liposomes in rabbit clomipramine toxicity.
Liposome (LIP)-like lipid dispersions have emerged as useful detoxification vehicles in vitro. The authors compare resuscitation with tailored LIPs, 20% intravenous lipid emulsion (ILE), and sodium bicarbonate (BIC), in a rabbit model of clomipramine toxicity. Sedated, instrumented New Zealand white...
Traumatic intracranial injury in intoxicated patients with minor head trauma.
Studies focusing on minor head injury in intoxicated patients report disparate prevalences of intracranial injury. It is unclear if the typical factors associated with intracranial injury in published clinical decision rules for computerized tomography (CT) acquisition are helpful in differentiating...
Provision of out-of-hospital analgesia to older fallers with suspected fractures: above par, but opportunities for improvement exist.
Paramedics frequently attend older patients who have fallen and sustained suspected fractures, a population of patients who may be at risk of inadequate analgesic care. This prospective study aimed to describe the rate and effectiveness of analgesia administered by paramedics to older patients with...
Global Emergency Medicine: a review of the literature from 2012.
The Global Emergency Medicine Literature Review (GEMLR) conducts an annual search of peer-reviewed and grey literature relevant to global emergency medicine (EM) to identify, review, and disseminate the most important new research in this field to a worldwide audience of academics and clinical pract...
Qualitative factors in patients who die shortly after emergency department discharge.
Early death after emergency department (ED) discharge may signal opportunities to improve care. Prior studies are limited by incomplete mortality ascertainment and lack of clinically important information in administrative data. The goal in this hypothesis-generating study was to identify patient an...
An ethical framework for the management of pain in the emergency department.
Pain is a ubiquitous problem, affecting more than 100 million individuals in the United States chronically and many more in the acute setting. Up to three-quarters of patients presenting to the emergency department (ED) report pain as a key component of their reasons for requiring acute care. While...
Emergency ultrasound-assisted examination of skin and soft tissue infections in the pediatric emergency department.
The objective was to evaluate the test characteristics of clinical examination (CE) with the addition of bedside emergency ultrasound (CE+EUS) compared to CE alone in determining skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) that require drainage in pediatric patients. This was a prospective study of CE+E...
