OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the place in therapy of fresh frozen plasma (FFP), C1 esterase concentrate (C1-INH), ecallantide, and icatibant in the management of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor-induced angioedema (ACEI-IA). DATA SOURCES: A literature search was performed using PubMed (1946 through August 2015) and Embase (<1966 through August 2015). References from identified articles were reviewed. STUDY SELECTION AND DATA EXTRACTION: Consensus papers, practice guidelines, case reports/series, clinical trials, and meeting abstracts published in English and involving humans were included...

BACKGROUND: Intracerebral hemorrhage is a well-recognized complication of anticoagulation therapy. However, there are only a few reports that address the management of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) in anticoagulated patients. OBJECTIVE: We report on our experiences with the use of prothrombin complex concentrate (PCC) for rapid anticoagulation reversal in aSAH. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed our institutional database of consecutive patients who received PCC between February 2006 and August 2014 (n > 1000)...

OBJECTIVES: Endotracheal intubation of trauma patients is a vital and high-risk procedure in the emergency department (ED). The hypothesis was that implementation of a standardized, preprocedural checklist would improve the safety of this procedure. METHODS: A preprocedural intubation checklist was developed and then implemented in a prospective pre-/postinterventional study in an academic trauma center ED. The proportions of trauma patients older than 16 years who experienced intubation-related complications during the 6 months before checklist implementation and 6 months after implementation were compared...

OBJECTIVES: This randomized clinical trial compares the efficacy and safety of oral oxycodone (an oral opioid) with naproxen (a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) in acute pain control in patients with soft tissue injury. It also evaluates the need for additional doses of analgesics in the first 24 hours of discharge from emergency department (ED). METHODS: Adult (>18 years old) patients with soft tissue injuries were enrolled in a teaching urban ED. Subjects were randomly allocated to receive a single dose of oral oxycodone (5 mg) or oral naproxen (250 mg)...

A patient, with known left ventricular failure presented with severe pulmonary edema, an ejection fraction of 10% to 15%, knee mottling, and lactates of 7 mM L⁻¹. He was treated with unusually high-dose nitroglycerin (NTG) intravenously (IV; NTG ≈ 70 mg for 1 hour). To suppress dyspnea, systolic blood pressure had to be lowered from ≈ 150-160 to ≈ 100-120 mm Hg. To lower NTG requirement, an α-2 agonist, clonidine, was administered (300 μg IV for 2 hours). Dyspnea, tachypnea, and tachycardia subsided for 1 to 2 hours, allowing to reduce NTG infusion to 2 to 4 mg h⁻¹...

OBJECTIVES: Four-factor prothrombin complex concentrates (4FPCCs) are emerging as the standard of care for emergent warfarin reversal due to their ability to rapidly and effectively achieve hemostasis. The ideal dose of this medication is not known. Recently, our hospital instituted a protocol where all doses of 4FPCC were a fixed dose of 1500 IU. This protocol provides 4FPCC rapidly and precludes delay waiting for international normalized ratio (INR) values. The purpose of this study was to evaluate our experience with this fixed dose protocol...

BACKGROUND: Our aim was to compare the efficacy and safety of intravenous (IV) titrated morphine with nebulized morphine given at 2 different doses in severe traumatic pain. METHODS: In a prospective, randomized, controlled double-blind study, we included 300 patients with severe traumatic pain. They were assigned to 3 groups: Neb10 group received 1 nebulization of 10-mg morphine; Neb20 group received 1 nebulization of 20-mg morphine, repeated every 10 minutes with a maximum of 3 nebulizations; and the IV morphine group received 2-mg IV morphine repeated every 5 minutes until pain relief...

OBJECTIVES: Delirium is frequently missed in older emergency department (ED) patients. Brief (<2 minutes) delirium assessments have been validated for the ED, but some ED health care providers may consider them to be cumbersome. The Richmond Agitation Sedation Scale (RASS) is an observational scale that quantifies level of consciousness and takes less than 10 seconds to perform. The authors sought to explore the diagnostic accuracy of the RASS for delirium in older ED patients. METHODS: This was a preplanned analysis of a prospective observational study designed to validate brief delirium assessments for the ED...

BACKGROUND: Biomarkers such as serum lactate, anion gap (AG), and base excess (BE) have been shown to be of use in determining shock in patients with seemingly normal vital signs. We seek to determine if these biomarkers can be used interchangeably in patients with trauma in the emergency setting based on their test characteristics and correlation to each other. METHODS: A prospective observational cohort study was undertaken at an urban level 1 trauma center. Baseline vital signs, point-of-care BE, AG, and serum lactate were recorded in all patients who presented for trauma...

OBJECTIVE: To compare time from medication administration to disposition from the Emergency Department (ED) between women treated for nausea and vomiting of pregnancy with different antiemetic agents. DESIGN: We performed a retrospective cohort study of women 13 weeks gestation or less treated in our Women and Infants Hospital ED for nausea and vomiting of pregnancy between 2009 and 2011. Data was collected on patient demographics, antiemetics used, and time to disposition...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: We assess and compare the analgesic efficacy and safety of subdissociative intravenous-dose ketamine with morphine in emergency department (ED) patients. METHODS: This was a prospective, randomized, double-blind trial evaluating ED patients aged 18 to 55 years and experiencing moderate to severe acute abdominal, flank, or musculoskeletal pain, defined as a numeric rating scale score greater than or equal to 5. Patients were randomized to receive ketamine at 0...
