By the end of this TBL session, learners should be able to: 1) Identify red flag symptoms that should prompt referral for urgent intervention by GI or surgical specialists; 2) recognize how chronicity of the vomiting can alter the differential diagnosis; 3) describe the varying pathways that can cause nausea and vomiting; 4) determine the necessity of imaging tests to confirm and possibly treat various causes of vomiting; 5) interpret imaging studies associated with specific causes of vomiting.
By the end of this educational session, the learner will: 1) list the characteristics of a simple febrile seizure; 2) discuss the management of a child with a simple vs. complex febrile seizure; 3) discuss the risk factors that correlate with an increased risk of a subsequent febrile seizure; 4) determine when a lumbar puncture should be considered in a febrile child with a seizure; 5) identify when to give anti-epileptics and construct an algorithm for their use; 6) discuss with parents, provide education and return precautions.
By the end of this simulation, learners will be able to: 1) Identify potential impairment in the form of alcohol intoxication in a physician colleague; 2) demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively with the colleague and remove them from the patient care environment; 3) discuss the appropriate next steps in identifying long-term wellness resources for the impaired colleague; and 4) demonstrate understanding of the need to continue to provide care for the patients by moving the case forward.
ABSTRACT: Audience: Our target audience includes emergency medicine residents/physicians. Introduction: Treating cardiac arrest is a common theme during simulated emergency medicine training; however, less time is focused on treating refractory cases of cardiac arrest. There are varying definitions of refractory cardiac arrest, but it is most commonly defined as the inability to obtain return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) after 10-30
At the conclusion of the simulation session, learners will be able to: 1) Obtain a relevant focused history and physical examination on the agitated psychiatric patient. 2) Develop a differential for the agitated psychiatric patient, including primary psychiatric conditions and other organic pathologies. 3) Discuss the management of the agitated psychiatric patient, including the different options available for chemical sedation. 4) Prioritize safety of self and staff when caring for an agitated psychiatric patient.
By the end of this simulation session, the learner will be able to: (1) describe a diagnostic differential for dizziness (2) describe the pathophysiology of cardiac tamponade (3) describe the acute management of cardiac tamponade, including fluid bolus and pericardiocentesis (4) describe the electrocardiogram (ECG) findings of pericardial effusion (5) describe the ultrasound findings of cardiac tamponade (6) describe the indications for emergent bedside pericardiocentesis versus medical stabilization and delayed pericardiocentesis for cardiac tamponade (7) describe the procedural steps for pericardiocentesis, and (8) describe your state’s laws regarding disclosure for sentinel events.

ABSTRACT: Audience: The following two cases were designed to address learning objectives specific to interns, junior residents, and senior residents in emergency medicine, as well as trauma-certified emergency nurses. Introduction: Traumatic and unintentional injuries account for 5.8 million deaths across the globe each year, with a high proportion of those deaths occurring within the initial hour from the time of
By the end of this exercise, learners should be able to (1) recite the basic START patient categories (2) discuss the physical exam signs associated with each START category, (3) assign roles to medical providers in a mass casualty scenario, (4) accurately categorize patients into triage categories: green, yellow, red, and black, and (5) manage limited resources when demand exceeds availability.
At the end of this practice oral boards case, the learner will: 1) assess a patient with altered mental status in an oral boards format; 2) review appropriate laboratory testing and diagnostic imaging; 3) identify signs and symptoms of thyroid storm and 4) review appropriate pharmacologic therapies with the proper sequence and timing.
Computer tomography (CT) imaging of soft tissues of the neck and of the chest/abdomen/pelvis revealed extensive swelling and subcutaneous air (see red arrows) on the left side of the face and neck extending to the left shoulder, as well as parapharyngeal/retropharyngeal spaces and posterior/superior mediastinum.
