Emergency department census rates and manpower gaps have continued to rise over the past decade, creating a demand for well-prepared emergency nurse practitioners (ENPs). The implementation of the consensus model for advanced practice nurses has brought acknowledgment by leading health care, physician, and nursing organizations of the ENP specialty as critical to building a high-quality emergency care workforce. Recognition of the ENP's unique skill set, and therefore need of specialty certification, has led to a growing interest in the expansion of nurse practitioner curricula in emergency care...

Therapeutic hypothermia (TH) postresuscitation has been recommended by the American Heart Association (AHA) since 2005. Early initiation of TH and fast achievement of goal temperatures have been associated with better neurological outcomes. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a specific TH protocol for the emergency department (ED) in increasing ED use of TH and decreasing the time from return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) to initiation of cooling measures. An ED protocol for TH as recommended by the AHA was implemented...

Health care practitioners serve an important role in identification and assistance of human trafficking victims. Advanced practice registered nurses, including certified nurse midwives, clinical nurse specialists, and nurse practitioners, are in a unique position to interact with persons trafficked and seen in the clinical setting, yet they require knowledge to identify the signs of human trafficking. Lack of training and education has been identified as a barrier for health care professionals to recognize human trafficking victims and implement needed health care services (; )...

Martin R Hevesy
Many Type 2 diabetic patients take metformin for its safety profile and lack of hypoglycemia. Although this drug is safe in those without renal dysfunction, lactic acidosis may rarely occur. Metformin-associated lactic acidosis is a potentially fatal yet rare diagnosis. Prompt recognition of even subtle symptoms can reduce mortality and preserve homeostasis.

Approximately 1.6% of all emergency department (ED) visits in the United States are for vaginal bleeding in early pregnancy, translating to around 500,000 ED visits per year. A potentially life-threatening condition, ectopic pregnancy occurs in 1.5%-2% of pregnancies. Many patients will require either surgical or pharmacological intervention following a positive diagnosis. With regard to pharmacological options, methotrexate, largely known for its use in the oncology arena, has emerged as the most effective nonsurgical option and the pharmacological agent of choice...

Chest pain is a common presenting symptom in the pediatric population, and in contrast to adults, the etiology is rarely cardiac or life-threatening. The majority of chest pain complaints in children and adolescents are benign and can be managed with reassurance and follow-up. The emergency care provider must obtain a comprehensive history and physical examination, as the differential diagnosis of pediatric chest pain is extensive and serious underlying organic pathology may be present. This article describes the case of an adolescent male with an unusual case of chest pain with a serious underlying medical condition...

Acute bronchitis is a predominantly viral illness and, according to clinical practice guidelines, should not be treated with antibiotics. Despite clear guidelines, acute bronchitis continues to be the most common acute respiratory illness for which antibiotics are incorrectly prescribed. Although the national benchmark for antibiotic prescribing for adults with acute bronchitis is 0%, a preliminary record review before implementing the intervention at the project setting showed that 96% (N = 30) of adults with acute bronchitis in this setting were prescribed an antibiotic...

Persistently elevated blood pressure ([BP]; hypertension [HTN]) occurs at higher rates in the emergency department ([ED]; 44%) than in the general population (27%) and disproportionately affects black patients and older adults. The American College of Emergency Physicians recommends referral to primary care for HTN confirmation and management when patients are asymptomatic and their BP is persistently elevated (). However, adherence to this clinical policy is suboptimal. The purpose of this study was to examine the prevalence of asymptomatic HTN, rates of BP reassessment and referral, and factors associated with it among adult patients who visit the ED and who were discharged a decade after this policy was disseminated...

Interruptions contribute to catastrophic errors in health care. Interruptions are breaks in the performance of a human activity initiated by a source internal or external to the recipient. Errors during the initial triage assessment can lead to errors in estimating the acuity of a patient and resources required for appropriate care. To advance the science, a valid and reliable instrument to measure this phenomenon is required. The purpose of this mixed-methods/exploratory sequential study was to develop an instrument sensitive to the uniqueness of the triage assessment that would categorize and measure the number and causes of triage interruptions...

The purpose of this study is to identify the unique educational needs of emergency nurse practitioners (ENPs). A survey from 167 nurse practitioners (NPs) practicing in the emergency department (ED) settings was analyzed. A variety of certified NPs practice in EDs: family NPs (30%), adult NPs (18%), acute care NPs (40%), and some with 2 or more certifications (12%). NPs come with a variety of basic educational preparations. The top educational needs specific to ENP preparation identified were managing critically ill patients, pharmacology, interpretation of laboratory tests, electrocardiograms, radiographs, and computed tomographic scans, suturing superficial lacerations, and mentoring by MDs and NPs...

REVIEW
Melanie Ann Kroger-Jarvis, Gordon Lee Gillespie
Testicular torsion is a urological emergency affecting 3.8 per 100,000 males younger than 18 years. Differential diagnosis of the acutely painful scrotum is crucial for the advance practice nurse to understand. Advanced practice nurses should consider the differential diagnosis of testicular torsion for any patient with testicular pain despite the patient's age, history, or physical examination findings. The standard of care for a patient with testicular pain to rule out testicular torsion is a Doppler ultrasound scan and an emergent urology consult...

It is not uncommon for providers in the emergency department to take care of patients who are taking anticoagulant therapy in the outpatient setting. However, the bigger challenge is caring for these patients when they present with bleeding that could be secondary to 1 or more of these medications. In recent years, this class of medications has expanded from warfarin to include direct thrombin inhibitors and Factor Xa inhibitors. As this class of medications has evolved, so has the approach to the reversal of these agents...

Review of recent evidence with translation to practice for the advanced practice nurse (APN) role is presented using a case study module for "Persistent Pain Among Older Adults Discharged Home From the Emergency Department After Motor Vehicle Crash: A Prospective Cohort Study." This longitudinal inquiry enrolled 161 patients 65 years or older seeking care in an emergency department (ED) following a motor vehicle crash. Interviews were conducted at the initial ED visit and at 6 weeks, 6 months, and 1 year. Variables of interest were persistent pain, depressive symptoms, and interference with activities of daily living, with an end goal of impact on functionality...
