BACKGROUND: Security services in most settings are an essential part of emergency department (ED) care, but their role remains poorly understood. We sought to:(1) identify the frequency of security services involvement in ED care;(2) characterise the events security services are called for; and (3) identify temporal trends in use. METHODS: We used a hospital-wide security database at a tertiary care ED in downtown Toronto, Ontario. Data from January 2017 to June 2021 related to the ED, patient or visitor related safety calls were included...

INTRODUCTION: As part of the COVID-19 pandemic response, the Ontario Ministry of Health funded a virtual care pilot program intended to support emergency department (ED) diversion of patients with low acuity complaints and reduce the need for face-to-face contact. The objective was to describe the demographic characteristics, outcomes and experience of patients using the provincial pilot program. METHODS: This was a prospective cohort study of patients using virtual care services provided by 14 ED-led pilot sites from December 2020 to September 2021...

PURPOSE: A large vertical incision is recommended when performing front-of-neck access in patients with impalpable neck landmarks during a cannot intubate-cannot oxygenate (CICO) scenario. We investigated the impact of ultrasonography on vertical incision size of a front-of-neck access on an ultrasound-compatible impalpable porcine larynx model. METHODS: Emergency medicine and anesthesia trainees were randomized to the Ultrasound (US, n = 21) and Non-Ultrasound (NUS, n = 21) groups...

OBJECTIVES: Pain is the most common reason for prehospital transport. As emergency wait times increase, timely pain management is essential. In children, there is abundant evidence that prehospital pharmacologic analgesia is suboptimal, but little is known about non-pharmacologic therapies. We sought to characterize documentation by paramedics of non-pharmacologic (immobilization and ice) and pharmacologic analgesia in children with musculoskeletal injuries. METHODS: We reviewed all ambulance call reports for children 0-17 years transported to Southwestern Ontario regional hospitals from January 1, 2017, to December 31, 2019, with a musculoskeletal injury (Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care problem codes 66 and 67)...

OBJECTIVES: Patient safety events (PSEs) are unwanted or unexpected events that occur during medical care. High cognitive loads and frequent interruptions make emergency departments (EDs) uniquely error prone environments. Yet, frontline clinicians rarely report PSEs using incident reporting systems. The incidence, severity, and preventability of PSEs thus remain poorly understood, and contributing factors are understudied. We sought to understand ED staff beliefs and perceptions about their PSE reporting system and what features they believe are important in such a system...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Point-of-care focused vascular ultrasound (FOVUS), an assessment of carotid artery plaque, predicts coronary artery disease in outpatients referred for coronary angiography. Our primary objective was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of sonographer-performed FOVUS to predict major adverse cardiac events (MACE) within 30 days among patients with suspected cardiac ischemia in the emergency department (ED). METHODS: We conducted a prospective cohort study of patients with chest pain presenting to a tertiary care ED who had an electrocardiogram and cardiac troponin testing...

OBJECTIVES: Patients leaving against medical advice (AMA) can be distressing for emergency physicians trying to navigate the medical, social, psychological, and legal ramifications of the situation in a fast-paced and chaotic environment. To guide physicians in fulfilling their obligation of care, we aimed to synthesize the best approaches to patients leaving AMA. METHODS: We conducted a scoping review across various fields of work, research context and methodology to synthesize the most relevant strategies for emergency physicians attending patients leaving AMA...

OBJECTIVES: Electric scooters (e-scooters) have contributed to a rise in injury burden and emergency department (ED) utilization since their local introduction 3 years ago. This study is a novel collaboration between the City of Calgary's Department of Transportation and emergency medicine researchers to better understand the nature and frequencies of e-scooter injuries. It quantifies the incidence and characteristics of e-scooter related injuries treated in Calgary EDs/urgent care centres (UCCs)...
