Ed Smith, Sunil Dasan
Activity levels within emergency medicine, and the pressures experienced by individual clinicians working within the specialty, continue to increase year on year. In 2016-17 there were 18 691 546 attendances at UK emergency departments. Attendance numbers continue to increase annually, patients are becoming older and more unwell, departments are more crowded and as a result, emergency care standard performance figures are deteriorating. This article describes the impact of this pressure on the staff working within the emergency department and begins to explore the potential for the development of sustainability within the existing and future workforce...

The use of ambulatory emergency care services in the NHS has been shown to reduce the emergency inpatient burden and enhance the overall patient experience, while demonstrating a cost saving to the NHS. At the James Paget University Hospital point-of-care testing was used as an enabler within an evidence-based lean service redesign to successfully set up a novel unit. A 3-month pilot period, with limited operational times, showed a dramatic improvement in patient flow through the acute medicine pathway, with an equivalent of 59 bed days saved during the pilot period...

Developing a consistent and skilled workforce is critical to the sustainability of any clinical service. Nurses and paramedics have formed part of the emergency care workforce for many years and the extended role of these staff groups has supported patient care as the demand has risen and outstripped the capacity of the medical staff. In many hospitals and health-care systems, these extended roles have developed in response to local demand and case mix, resulting in inconsistent role descriptions and lack of transportable qualifications...

Ian Higginson, Adrian Boyle
Our emergency departments have never been under so much pressure. Crowding in these departments is both a cause and symptom of this pressure. Crowding kills patients and harms staff. It is the most important problem affecting emergency departments in the UK. The causes are described and include factors relating to input, throughput and output. Interventions aimed at these causes may confer benefit, but the most important problem remains unsolved. This is exit block caused by lack of beds, and flow through those beds, exacerbated by downgrading of capacity in unscheduled care in the evenings, weekends and during holiday periods...

Hosam E Matar, Paula Stritch, Nicholas Emms
Infection following total knee replacement surgery is a challenging and devastating complication. Clinical assessment including history, examination, radiographs, blood tests and knee aspirations helps to establish the diagnosis. Revision surgery is typically required to eradicate infection and restore function. This has traditionally been performed through two-stage revision surgery, although single-stage revision surgery is gaining popularity with comparable results in carefully selected patients. This article reviews the clinical assessment and principles of surgical management of infected total knee replacements...

Alexandra Hughes, Dan Boden, Maya Naravi
One of the key challenges faced in emergency medicine is to provide effective training so that clinicians feel valued and supported in the roles they undertake. While there are numerous areas of exemplar practice nationally this article details two areas of particular focus for the Royal College of Emergency Medicine: supporting trainees' return to formal training programmes and developing specialty and associate specialist doctors in emergency medicine.

Daniel J Kim
Medical reversal is common, with rates of reversal of practices that were considered standard of care as high as 40%. Unfortunately, many standards of care are never tested, but instead are often promoted based on pathophysiological explanations or simply being long-established practices. Much of medical practice is based on dogma: a set of principles laid down by authority as incontrovertibly true. This article evaluates four commonly taught dogmatic practices in emergency medicine to determine if they are supported by the medical literature or are instead myths and misconceptions: (1) topical anaesthetics inhibit corneal healing, (2) treatment of myocardial infarction is MONA (morphine, oxygen, nitrates, aspirin), (3) children do not get sprains because their ligaments are stronger than bone, and (4) vagal manoeuvres for supraventricular tachycardia never work in adults...
