Sense of coherence mediates the effect of trauma on the social and emotional functioning of Palestinian health providers.
Authors: Veronese G, Pepe A Abstract Palestinian health providers are widely recognized to be at risk of developing trauma. Research has examined the role of sense of coherence (SOC) as a determinant or component of psychological distress in emergency workers. In the current study, we expected that SOC would mediate the relationship between individual health providers' primary responses to the traumatic environment (as assessed using intrusion and avoidance measures) and the secondary effects suffered in terms of general psychological distress as reflected in levels of anxiety, social dysfunction, and loss of confi...

Use of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)-covered stent in treatment of RCA aneurysm
A 55-year-old man presented to the emergency room with acute severe retrosternal chest pain radiating to his left arm. His past medical history includes coronary artery disease (CAD) with multiple percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). The patient was asymptomatic before this episode. He was haemodynamically stable, and physical exam was unremarkable. EKG showed sinus bradycardia without ischaemic changes. Cardiac biomarkers were normal. He underwent cardiac catheterisation, which showed a 10 mm right coronary artery (RCA) aneurysm at the site of a previously placed drug eluting stent (figure 1 and online suppleme...

Keeping Our Patients Safe When Mother Nature Rules
I, Holly Hatfield have always been involved with Disaster Preparedness and Medicine working with Search dogs, and American Red Cross Disaster Services, and Louisville Metro Medical Reserve Corps and have taken this to the PACU where I work. It started out with me wanting my coworkers to be prepared so if something happened they could continue to work on our patients, knowing their family was safe. This led to many flyers from FEMA that everyone could pick up to help them be prepared. It grew with the tornado that hit Joplin and destroyed one of their hospitals to encompass more than just our employees and families but our ...

Contact Precautions for Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus: Are They Still Valuable?
Abstract Guidelines from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Healthcare Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee recommend the use of contact precautions to prevent the transmission of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in acute-care facilities. The merits of these recommendations are debated because it is not clear that contact precautions are essential for the control of this drug-resistant bacterium. Also, contact precautions are resource-intensive and may be detrimental to patient well-being. Recent studies have demonstrated that horizontal measures, such as improved hand h...

To breathe or not to breathe: a review of artificial airway placement and related complications
Abstract Artificial airway devices are commonly used to provide adequate ventilation and/or oxygenation in multiple clinical settings, both emergent and nonemergent. These frequently used devices include laryngeal mask airway, esophageal–tracheal combitube, endotracheal tube, and tracheostomy tube and are associated with various acute and late complications. Clinically, this may vary from mild discomfort to a potentially life-threatening situation. Radiologically, these devices and their acute and late complications have characteristic imaging findings which can be detected primarily on radiographs and computed ...

ClearGuide ONE Easy to Use Needle Guidance System FDA Cleared (VIDEO)
Clear Guide Medical, a Johns Hopkins spinoff firm we reported on last year, received FDA clearance for its Clear Guide ONE needle guidance system that works with any ultrasound system out there. Previous needle guidance devices, which help make central line placement, needle biopsies, and regional anesthesia easier to perform, use magnetic or mechanical tracking, markers, and require pre-procedure calibration and setup. The Clear Guide ONE simply snaps onto an ultrasound probe and it’s ready to go. The system uses a camera to watch the orientation of the needle above the skin and a computer interpolates where the tip...

Is treatment under general anaesthesia associated with dental neglect and dental disability among caries active preschool children?
Conclusions Children treated under general anaesthesia were significantly more often diagnosed with both dental neglect and dental disability. Dental disability was the only factor significantly related to dental neglect. There is a need for improved documentation in the dental records to better identify dental neglect and dental disability, and also a continued training of dentists regarding child protection.

Must-listen podcast: anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis
  < As part of its “Best Case Ever” series, the Emergency Medicine Cases podcast has a superb discussion by Dr. David Carr of anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis, a relatively new but important diagnosis that is generally under-recognized and often missed. To listen to it, click here. The reason this diagnosis is of interest to toxicologists is that during the early psychotic stage of the disease patients may be treated with a neuroleptic agent. During later stages when movement disorders and autonomic instability supervene, it is easy to misdiagnose the condition as neuroleptic malignant syndrome. The tele...

Tox on the web: narcotic noodles, intranasal narcan, and much more!
The Antidote: A long piece in the  The New Yorker by Ian Frazier describes the epidemic of overdoses from both prescription opiate analgesics and heroin, how that epidemic affects the New York City borough of Staten Island, and the potential role of intranasal naloxone in reducing the number of deaths. A little superficial regarding the origins of the epidemic and the medical use of naloxone, but well worth reading nevertheless. It is superb at portraying the human dimension of what Frazier justifiably calls an “iatrogenic disaster.” By the way, the versatile Frazier is the author of one of the funniest parodi...

The Effects of Expanding Public Insurance to Rural Low‐Income Childless Adults
ConclusionsPublic insurance expansions to childless adults have the potential to impact the use of health care.

Don’t miss the diagnosis of sepsis!
The early detection and treatment of sepsis are the most important factors in improving the outcome of patients with this condition. However, many patients admitted to hospital experience a long delay in the diagnosis of sepsis. Furthermore, it is not uncommon for febrile patients to be sent home from the Emergency Department or the physician’s office with the diagnosis of ‘flu’ only to return hours or days later in overt septic shock. The early diagnosis of sepsis may be challenging as many of the signs and symptoms are non-specific. Clinical studies suggest that early diagnosis of sepsis requires a high index of su...

Brief Report: Emergency Department Utilization by Individuals with Autism.
Abstract To identify medical problems most commonly presenting to emergency departments among individuals with autism as compared to non-autistic persons across age groups. Data was obtained from the 2010 National Emergency Department database and was analyzed by age categories: 3-5, 6-11, 12-15, 16-18 and 19 years and older. Epilepsy emerged as the leading presenting diagnosis among those with Autism spectrum disorder (ASD), ages 16-19 years and 19 over. Psychiatric conditions were primary among ASD individuals aged 12-15 years, accounting for more than 11 % of all visits. In this sample, age-related differenc...

The management of the surgical complications of HELLP syndrome.
CONCLUSIONS: We have presented a large series of patients with surgical complications resulting from HELLP syndrome managed without maternal mortality. This review has confirmed that haemodynamically stable patients with HELLP syndrome associated hepatic rupture can be conservatively treated successfully. However, in unstable patients, perihepatic packing and transfer to a specialist liver unit is recommended.

Abstract We aimed to describe the characteristics and disposition of youth referred from schools to the emergency department (ED) for psychiatric evaluations. Consecutive 12-month records of ED psychiatric consultations at a large urban hospital from 07.01.2009 to 06.30.2010 were retrospectively analyzed. School-initiated referrals were deemed inappropriate if youth were discharged from the ED without any recommended mental health follow-up. Of the 551 psychiatric ED evaluations, 243 (44.1 %) were initiated by schools. Of all school referrals, only 19 (7.8 %) children were psychiatrically hospitalized, 108 (44.4...
