Procedural sedation EM department

Siobhán McCoy, Mark D Lyttle, Stuart Hartshorn, Philip Larkin, Maria Brenner, Ronan O'Sullivan
INTRODUCTION: There is extensive literature on paediatric procedural sedation (PPS) and its clinical applications in emergency departments (EDs). While numerous guidance and policy documents exist from international bodies, there remains a lack of uniformity and consistency of PPS practices within EDs. PPS is now gaining traction in the UK and Ireland and this study aimed to describe existing PPS practices and identify any challenges to training and provision of ED-based PPS. METHODS: A qualitative approach was employed to capture data through a focus group interview...

PURPOSE: To determine the agents used by emergency medicine (EM) physicians in pediatric procedural sedation and the associated adverse events (AEs) and to provide recommendations for optimizing drug therapy in pediatric patients. METHODS: We conducted a prospective study at Stanford Hospital's pediatric emergency department (ED) from April 2007 to April 2008 to determine the medications most frequently used in pediatric procedural sedation as well as their effectiveness and AEs...

INTRODUCTION: Several agents can be administered during procedural sedation and analgesia (PSA) in the emergency department (ED). The purpose of this study was to determine the PSA agents commonly used by physicians working in nontertiary EDs, and to assess the physicians' comfort level administering the agents as well as their knowledge of adverse effects of the agents. METHODS: We distributed a confidential electronic survey to physicians working in nontertiary EDs in southwestern Ontario...

OBJECTIVES: An estimated 14% to 25% of all scientific studies in peer-reviewed emergency medicine (EM) journals are medical records reviews. The majority of the chart reviews in these studies are performed manually, a process that is both time-consuming and error-prone. Computer-based text search engines have the potential to enhance chart reviews of electronic emergency department (ED) medical records. The authors compared the efficiency and accuracy of a computer-facilitated medical record review of ED clinical records of geriatric patients with a traditional manual review of the same data and describe the process by which this computer-facilitated review was completed...

OBJECTIVE: Prosthetic hip dislocation is common. This study compares prosthetic hip relocations attempted within the ED by emergency doctors and those under orthopaedic care in the ED or operating theatre (OT). METHODS: Retrospective cohort study of patients presenting to Auckland City Hospital Adult Emergency Department with prosthetic hip dislocations between 1 January 2003 and 14 April 2008. Primary outcomes were proportion of successful relocation attempts and length of hospital stay...

INTRODUCTION: Strategies for increasing the numbers of American Board of Emergency Medicine certified/emergency medicine (EM) residency trained physicians practicing in rural emergency departments (EDs) include providing rural EM experiences during residency training. However, no studies to date describe the clinical work of EM residents rotating in a rural ED. The objective of the study was to compare the clinical experience of EM residents participating in a rural ED rotation with that on an urban university-based ED rotation...

Procedural sedation and analgesia are core skills in emergency medicine. Various specialty societies have developed guidelines for procedural sedation, each reflecting the perspective of the specialty group. Emergency practitioners are most likely to embrace guidelines developed by people who understand emergency department (ED) skills, procedures, conditions, and case mix. Recognizing this, the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians (CAEP) determined the need to establish guidelines for procedural sedation in the ED...
