OBJECTIVE: Pediatric emergency departments (ED) develop strategies to decrease wait time. Yet, lowering wait times may incite patients to come back, and increase patient volume. We aim to determine if wait time in a first visit influenced the likelihood of a revisit to the same setting. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of children with a first visit to a single pediatric ED between November 1st 2016, and October 31st 2017. First visit was defined as no visit in the same ED in the previous 12 months...

Mehmet Akcimen, Cihan Bedel
INTRODUCTION: Dislocation of the shoulder joint is common and is mainly anterior. Several reduction methods have been described and the external reduction method (ERM) is one of the newest. We modified the ERM by making some additions in hopes to develop a less painful, quick and simple method. The aim of this study was to compare the new modified external rotation reduction method (MERM) with ERM in acute anterior shoulder dislocations (ASD). METHODS: A total of 62 patients with ASD were classified randomly into 2 groups...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: There remains limited evidence for the clinical importance of most imaging findings in whiplash. However, it is possible the type and number of findings on Computed Tomography (CT) may contribute to prognostic recovery models. The purpose is to interpret cervical spine pathologies in the context of known factors influencing recovery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a secondary analysis from a database of 97 acutely injured participants enrolled in a prospective inception cohort study...

BACKGROUND: Emergency department (ED) crowding is a recognized issue and it has been suggested that it can affect clinician decision-making. OBJECTIVES: Our objective was to determine whether ED census was associated with changes in triage or disposition decisions made by ED nurses and physicians. METHODS: We performed a retrospective study using one year of data obtained from a US academic center ED (65,065 patient encounters after cleaning)...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate the usefulness of coagulation biomarkers as predictors of the need for massive transfusion (MT) in patients with pelvic fractures. METHODS: Patients who were treated for pelvic fractures in our hospital were divided into 2 groups: MT and non-MT. MT was defined as the transfusion of packed red blood cells (PRBCs) ≧10 units caused by bleeding within 24 h after admission. We compared variables between two groups, including vital signs, the scoring system and blood sample test...

PURPOSE: The quick Sepsis-Related Organ Failure Assessment (qSOFA) score was designed to predict mortality among sepsis patients. However, it has never been used to identify prolonged length of hospital stay (pLOS) in geriatric patients with influenza infection. We conducted this study to clarify this issue. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective case-control study, including geriatric patients (aged ≥ 65 years) with influenza infection visiting the emergency department (ED) of a medical center between January 01, 2010 and December 31, 2015...

OBJECTIVE: Identifying communities at high risk of stroke is an important step in improving systems of stroke care. Stroke is known to show spatial clustering at the state and county levels, but it is not known if clusters are present within city boundaries. METHODS: We performed a geospatial analysis of the prevalence of stroke within 500 major cities in the United States using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 500 Cities Project. For each city, we calculated the Moran's I statistic, which looks for evidence of spatial clustering, and used Monte Carlo simulation to assess for clustering significance...

BACKGROUND: Cardiomegaly on chest radiographs (CXR) in pediatric patients leads to multiple tests. We aimed to determine the positive predictive value (PPV) of cardiomegaly on CXR in predicting subsequent heart disease and to assess the utility of obtaining a B-type Natriuretic Peptide level (BNP) and/or electrocardiogram (EKG) in such patients. We hypothesized that an echocardiogram may not be appropriate in all cases of cardiomegaly on CXR, particularly in a patient with a normal EKG and BNP level...

Ching-I Lee, Yen-Hung Wu
Pneumatosis intestinalis (PI) refers to the presence of gas within the wall of the small or large intestine. PI can be both asymptomatic and life-threatening. The patient was a 50-year-old man with previous cervical spine abscess and osteomyelitis post debridement 4 years ago, with a heroin abuse history. He presented with abdominal distension ongoing for 4 days and vomiting for 3 times with fluid content. Abdominal computed tomography revealed pneumatosis with pneumoretroperitoneum. A surgeon was contacted and antibiotic treatment was started...

INTRODUCTION: Different scoring methods exist for the Month of the Year Backward Test (MBT), which is designed to detect inattention, the core feature of delirium. When used as a part of the modified Confusion Assessment Method for the Emergency Department (mCAM-ED), each error in the MBT scores one point. Because this scoring procedure is complex, we aimed to simplify the scoring method of the MBT. METHODS: This is a secondary analysis of a single center prospective validation study of the mCAM-ED comprising a sample of Emergency Department (ED) patients aged 65 or older presenting to our ED...

Half-life of the antipsychotic vegetamin is very long, partially due to the presence of phenobarbital, and mortality due to phenobarbital poisoning is high. Here, we present the case of a 22-year-old female admitted to the emergency department with disturbed consciousness due to vegetamin overdose. Her blood phenobarbital level was elevated to 123 μg/ml. Phenobarbital undergoes enterohepatic circulation, and its retention in the intestine causes its blood levels to remain sustained. The utility of hemodialysis for drug poisoning has been previously reported; however, its efficiency is not yet established and its efficacy is low for drugs with long half-lives such as phenobarbital...

INTRODUCTION: Citalopram is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor used for treatment of depression. Metabolism is primarily through CYP3A4 and CYP2C19; activity of the latter can vary depending on genetics. Although rare after single agent exposure, large citalopram ingestions can lead to serotonin syndrome. We report a case of citalopram overdose in an intermediate CYP2C19 metabolizer complicated by severe serotonin syndrome. CASE DETAILS: A 25-year-old female presented after intentional citalopram overdose with seizures, tachycardia, persistent neuromuscular findings, and severe hyperthermia requiring aggressive sedation and cooling...

We present the rare case of a small bowel obstruction secondary to pelvic organ prolapse (POP). A 77-year-old female presented with four days of abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. She had a history of abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-opherectomy and a mildly symptomatic cystocele. She was found to have an enterocele causing small bowel obstruction. The enterocele was manually reduced and subsequently managed non-operatively with a pessary. Prior case reports of small bowel obstructions secondary to POP required emergent surgical intervention...
