Anne Winkler, David True
Giant cell arteritis is the most common large vessel vasculitis. Classic symptoms include headaches, scalp tenderness, visual loss and muscle stiffness and pain. First line treatment is with high dose steroids but methotrexate may be of some help in decreasing steroid use. Tocilizumab has been shown to significantly decrease relapse rate and lower steroid cumulative dose.

Heather de Anda, Taylor Dibble, Charles Schlaepfer, Randi Foraker, Kristen Mueller
This is a single-center cross-sectional study of consecutive patients who presented to an urban emergency department (ED) with firearm injuries between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2016. The objective of this study was to describe the characteristics of patients in this cohort and identify those at risk of firearm re-injury to inform future interventions. Patients in this cohort with both initial and recidivistic firearm injures were found to be predominately young, African American men. Objective: To describe the characteristics of patients who present to the emergency department (ED) with firearm injuries and identify those at risk of firearm re-injury...

A mass casualty incident (MCI) by definition can overwhelm local and regional resources. Preparation and training is required by any health system to minimize the loss of life and maximize patient recovery. This update will review lessons learned from recent events and discuss current research that healthcare providers should be familiar with when managing MCI's.

Jacob A Quick
Trauma care is the classic high-acuity event for which simulation training has the potential to greatly improve outcomes. While not a new concept, the variability and availability of training modalities in trauma continues to rapidly multiply. Spanning the continuum of fidelity, simulation extends from simple trauma scenario discussion, to advanced virtual reality experiences. The choice of simulation is largely dependent upon the desired outcome, which is broadly divided into either task-oriented or non-technical skill acquisition...

Jeffrey S Litt
Advances in the management of burn patients have contributed to significant improvements in morbidity and mortality over the last century. The physiologic insult from this injury pattern, however, still requires extensive surgical intervention, resuscitation and multidisciplinary care. This paper will review the standard of care of these patients in the context of a recent case study from our institution.

Dane C Paneitz, Salman Ahmad
Trauma is the leading cause of mortality in children, accounting for over 11,000 deaths and more than 8 million nonfatal injuries in 2015 for ages 1-19 years.1 Current issues garnering particular attention and research efforts include traumatic brain injury (TBI), blunt solid organ injuries, imaging guidelines and trauma-induced coagulopathy. This article reviews the evaluation and management of the pediatric trauma patient while focusing on recent updates.

Thirty-three percent of early traumatic deaths are secondary to hemorrhage. In addition to timing to source control, the literature has seen a surge of research on adjuncts in hemorrhage control. This review focuses on three of the latest interventions in the management of the bleeding patient; an endovascular aortic occlusive balloon, tranexamic acid (TXA), and updates to the massive transfusion protocol.

Jeffrey Coughenour
This update is a conversation with our trauma medical director about the initial evaluation and management of the injured patient. After a brief historical perspective, we discuss the immediate treatment of life-threatening injuries at local hospitals within the context of definitive care at a level 1 trauma center. Our journey is colored by recent cases we have treated at our institution with the hope that we save more Missourian lives.

We review recent findings on medical aspects of marijuana use in order to identify those who are at greatest risk of marijuana-related medical problems. We analyze the impact of medical marijuana laws on health, in particular the disproportionate effects on adolescents and children. Chronic marijuana use predominantly affects certain areas of the brain that overlap the default mode network, linked hubs in the brain that play a supervisory role in critical thought processes such as attention, memory, and social interactions...
