A Matter Of Degrees? Views Of Ems Online Degrees' Value And Design, Sandy Hunter 2016 Eastern Kentucky University

A Matter Of Degrees? Views Of Ems Online Degrees' Value And Design, Sandy Hunter

EKU Faculty and Staff Scholarship

EMS has continued its move from a product of training to being the result of education. A part of that process has been the proliferation of academic programs that focus upon emergency medical services related topical areas. As this trend continues, it is incumbent upon the educators who teach these curricula to determine the most desired and (therefore) effective designs for EMS degrees. This presentation will discuss the results of statewide online research of Paramedics in Kentucky, asking several questions to determine: - the current level of education among that population, - the types of EMS programs they completed, - perceived usefulness of ...


Traumatic Posterior Tibial Pseudoaneursym: A Rare Late Complication Repaired Conventionally, Farzad Amiri, MD, Zachary Sanford, Constantinous Constantinou, MD 2016 Marshall University: School of Medicine

Traumatic Posterior Tibial Pseudoaneursym: A Rare Late Complication Repaired Conventionally, Farzad Amiri, Md, Zachary Sanford, Constantinous Constantinou, Md

Marshall Journal of Medicine

Posterior tibial artery pseudoaneurysms are extremely rare. They commonly present as a late complication of trauma or iatrogenic injury. Diagnosis can be elusive. Treatment has been described in the context of open primary repair, endovascular stenting, and coil embolization. There has been increasing interest in the use of endovascular treatment options for this type of injury. If left untreated, pseudoaneurysms can rupture, partially thrombose, expand and cause adjacent local compression and compartment syndrome. The following case presented is of a young gentleman with a posterior tibial pseudoaneurysm incidentally discovered after stepping on glass and the management of his posterior tibial ...

The Frequency Of Influenza And Bacterial Co-Infection: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis., Eili Y. Klein, Bradley Monteforte, Alisha Gupta, Wendi Jiang, Larissa May, Yu-Hsiang Hsieh, Andrea Freyer Dugas 2016 George Washington University

The Frequency Of Influenza And Bacterial Co-Infection: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis., Eili Y. Klein, Bradley Monteforte, Alisha Gupta, Wendi Jiang, Larissa May, Yu-Hsiang Hsieh, Andrea Freyer Dugas

Emergency Medicine Faculty Publications

AIM: Co-infecting bacterial pathogens are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in influenza. However, there remains a paucity of literature on the magnitude of co-infection in influenza patients.

METHOD: A systematic search of MeSH, Cochrane Library, Web of Science, SCOPUS, EMBASE, and PubMed was performed. Studies of humans in which all individuals had laboratory confirmed influenza, and all individuals were tested for an array of common bacterial species, met inclusion criteria.

RESULTS: Twenty-seven studies including 3,215 participants met all inclusion criteria. Common etiologies were defined from a subset of eight articles. There was high heterogeneity in the results ...


Emergency Medicine Providers Systematically Underestimate Their Opioid Prescribing Practices, Sean S. Michael, Kavita Babu, Christopher Androskl Jr., Martin A. Reznek 2016 University of Massachusettts Medical School

Emergency Medicine Providers Systematically Underestimate Their Opioid Prescribing Practices, Sean S. Michael, Kavita Babu, Christopher Androskl Jr., Martin A. Reznek

UMass Center for Clinical and Translational Science Research Retreat

Background: Opioid misuse is a known public health problem, nationwide and in Massachusetts. The Massachusetts Hospital Association (MHA) developed recommendations to address opioid prescribing in the ED setting, and UMassMemorial Health Care recently implemented a system-wide opioid practice guideline mirroring the MHA policy. Little is known about methods to influence behavior change among ED providers related to opioid prescribing practices. Guideline implementation provided a unique opportunity for a natural experiment related to prescribing patterns, and we hypothesized that a simultaneous experimental intervention to provide clinicians with their individual prescribing data would alter their practices beyond any effect achieved solely by ...

Introduction

  • Telehealth (TH) is an innovative model of care delivery with potential to provide more patient-centered healthcare, allowing patients to receive care when and where is most convenient.
  • To date, little is known about patient perceptions of receiving care with the use of TH video visits.

Subdural Hematoma As A Consequence Of Epidural Anesthesia., Tracy M Bishop DO, Kareem S. Elsayed MS, Kathleen E. Kane MD 2016 Lehigh Valley Health Network

Subdural Hematoma As A Consequence Of Epidural Anesthesia., Tracy M Bishop Do, Kareem S. Elsayed Ms, Kathleen E. Kane Md

Kathleen E Kane MD

Regional spinal and epidural anesthesia are used commonly in operative procedures. While the most frequent complication, postdural puncture headache (PDPH), is a clinically diagnosed positional headache that is usually self-limited, subdural hemorrhage (SDH) is a potentially fatal complication that cannot be missed. We report a case of an otherwise healthy female who presented with persistent positional headache and was ultimately found to have a large subdural hematoma with midline shift requiring surgical evacuation.

Acute Cerebellar Ataxia: An Unusual Pediatric Case., Thanhnga T. Doan, Clifford P. Masom Md, Richard J. Mazzaccaro Md, Kathleen E. Kane Md

Kathleen E Kane MD

BACKGROUND: Acute cerebellar ataxia is a clinical syndrome with sudden onset of uncoordinated gait and normal mental status in young children. Although it has a benign clinical course, it often requires an exhaustive diagnostic work-up in order to rule out potentially life-threatening etiologies that present similarly. The wide differential encompasses causes from infections, brain masses, drugs, toxins, trauma, paraneoplastic syndromes, as well as hereditary or congenital disorders.

CASE REPORT: We report on a 4-year-old boy with recent hand-foot-mouth disease who presented with acute cerebellar ataxia. In addition to his marked truncal ataxia and wide-based, staggering gait, he had slowness of ...

Management of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo: A Randomized Control Trial

Regina R. Sacco, DPT, BA, BHSc, David B. Burmeister, DO, Valerie Rupp, RN, MSN, CRNP, Marna Rayl Greenberg, DO, MPH

Background: Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is a common complaint of patients who seek care in the Emergency Department (ED).

Objective: To compare the efficacy of vestibular rehabilitation (maneuver) vs. conventional therapy (medications) in ED patients with BPPV. In particular we sought to evaluate the improvement of vertigo in patients diagnosed with BPPV in the ED, assess their disposition time, and compare patient satisfaction between those patients who receive standard ...

Burmeister Do, Facep, Ted Corbin, Preeti Dalawari, Jeanne L. Jacoby Md, Judith Linden, Jonathan Purtle, Carol North, Debra E Houry

David Burmeister, DO, FACEP, CPE

Mental illness is a growing, and largely unaddressed, problem for the population and for emergency department (ED) patients in particular. Extensive literature outlines sex and gender differences in mental illness' epidemiology and risk and protective factors. Few studies, however, examined sex and gender differences in screening, diagnosis, and management of mental illness in the ED setting. Our consensus group used the nominal group technique to outline major gaps in knowledge and research priorities for these areas, including the influence of violence and other risk factors on the course of mental illness for ED patients. Our consensus group urges the pursuit ...
