BACKGROUND: Systemic hemodynamic characteristics of patients with suspected acute ischemic stroke are poorly described. The objective of this study was to identify baseline hemodynamic characteristics of emergency department (ED) patients with suspected acute stroke. METHODS: This was a planned analysis of the stroke cohort from a multicenter registry of hemodynamic profiling of ED patients. The registry prospectively collected non-invasive hemodynamic measurements of patients with suspicion for acute stroke within 12h of symptom onset...

BACKGROUND: Patients who return to the Emergency Department (ED) within 72h of discharge are often used for ED Quality Assurance efforts, however little is known about the yield of this kind of review and the types of errors it identifies. Our objective was to identify the prevalence, types and severity of errors in these cases. METHODS: Retrospective review of patients who presented to an urban, university affiliated ED between 10/1/2012-9/30/2015 who returned within 72 h requiring hospital admission...

OBJECTIVE: Many studies in the literature related to the investigation of the sensitivity and specificity of ultrasound examinations in lateral malleolar fractures is limited. The aim of this study is to investigate the sensitivity and specificity of ultrasound examinations performed by emergency physicians in fractures who are presented to the emergency department with blunt lateral malleolar trauma. METHOD: Patients over 18years of age who were admitted to the ED with lateral malleolar tenderness were enrolled to this study with convenience sampling...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Endothelial nitric oxide synthase gene polymorphisms play a role in some pathophysiological processes. In this study, the possible effects of endothelial nitric oxide synthase gene polymorphisms on ureteral stone disease in patients who were admitted to the emergency department with severe pain due to renal colic are examined. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study groups were designed as controls and patients. The control group was formed from the healthy volunteers who applied to the blood center next to the emergency service...

OBJECTIVE: We set out to describe the use and analyze the predictors of non-invasive ventilation failure in patients with community-acquired pneumonia who receive non-invasive ventilation as first line ventilatory therapy in the emergency department. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted among consecutive patients with community acquired pneumonia requiring ventilator support presenting to two tertiary care university-affiliated emergency departments...

Extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) followed by operating room sternotomy, rather than resuscitative thoracotomy, might be life-saving for patients with blunt cardiac rupture and cardiac arrest who do not have multiple severe traumatic injuries. A 49-year-old man was injured in a vehicle crash and transferred to the emergency department. On admission, he was hemodynamically stable, but a plain chest radiograph revealed a widened mediastinum, and echocardiography revealed hemopericardium. A computed tomography scan revealed hemopericardium and mediastinal hematoma, without other severe traumatic injuries...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is one of the most common complications of COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), but its severe form is uncommon. Various factors play an important role in the occurrence and severity of pulmonary hypertension in patients. METHODS: This cross-sectional study was performed on patients with COPD referred to an emergency department over a one-year period. The tests-including complete blood count (CBC) and arterial blood gas (ABG), pulmonary functional test (PFT) and echocardiography-were performed for all patients to measure mPAP (mean pulmonary artery pressure), ejection fraction (EF) and body mass index (BMI)...

OBJECTIVES: This study was performed to identify the risk factors for delayed intracranial hemorrhage and develop a risk stratification system for disposition of head trauma patients with negative initial brain imaging. METHODS: The data source was National Health Insurance Service-National Sample Cohort of Korea. We analyzed adult patients presenting to the ER from January 2004 to September 2012, who underwent brain imaging and discharged with or without short-term observation no longer than two days...

Diffuse axonal injury is usually caused by head trauma, and patients have significant clinical symptoms during admission to the emergency department. In our case, we present a five-year-old patient who was involved in a car accident. During admission to the emergency department, the patient had no symptoms of trauma. However, 6 h after admission to emergency service, neurological symptoms occurred, and mental status changed. Diffuse axonal injury (DAI) is characterized by diffuse nerve axon injury in the brain and brainstem...

Sudden sensorineural hearing loss is an otologic emergency. Many etiological factors can lead to this pathology. Honey bee (Apis mellifera) sting may lead to local and systemic reactions due to sensitization of the patient. In this paper we described a sudden sensorineural hearing loss occurred after honey bee sting.

Mazin Alhamdani, Christopher Kelly
Kohler's disease is rare cause of foot pain and limping in the pediatric population. The exact etiology of Kohler's disease is unknown. It usually presents as sudden and unexplained foot pain and limping. We report a case of a 5-year-old male who presented to the Pediatric Emergency Department with foot pain and inability to bear weight for two days after overactivity and acute foot injury. The patient was eventually diagnosed with Kohler's disease (avascular necrosis of the navicular bone). Although Kohler's disease is not very common, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of foot pain in the pediatric population, as it may prevent unnecessary tests and treatments...
