  • Spinal Epidural Abscess

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose of Review The goal of this review is to summarize the importance of identifying and treating a spinal epidural abscess. This review also delves into the intricacies of imaging modalities and the controversies regarding management options. Recent Findings Although magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a valuable diagnostic tool for evaluating SEA, focused attention to T2 imaging to the exclusion of other sequences can result in diagnostic errors and overlooking critical epidural abscesses. Summary Spinal epidural abscess is a rare disease; however, it has high morbidity and mortality if left untreated. Although rare, there is a slow progressive increase in the incidence of SEA. Imaging should be considered for any patient with red flags in their history or physical examination. MRI is the imaging test of choice to assure early diagnosis and treatment. Reliance on T2 imaging can result in an underappreciation of SEA. The characteristic space-occupying process, the essential comparison of T1 and T2 imaging, and the use of contrast characteristics are key ingredients for an accurate diagnosis.

  • Short-Term Mechanical Circulatory Support Devices: Uses and Outcomes

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose of Review In this review, we discuss common acute mechanical circulatory support (AMCS) devices summarizing their uses, hemodynamic effects, and outcomes as well as indications for their use in the treatment of various etiologies for cardiogenic shock (CS). Recent Findings AMCS devices have demonstrated a survival benefit when used as a bridge to therapy or surgery in the setting of acute myocardial infarction (MI) and postcardiotomy cardiogenic shock (PCCS), but do not seem to improve mortality rates among COVID-19 patients. While limited data support their use in heart transplant candidates awaiting surgery, their detrimental effects when used for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) patients are well-documented. Despite being the most commonly used device, the intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) is being gradually replaced in recent years by devices such as extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), Tandem Heart®, and Impella®, which offer greater hemodynamic support. Summary Acute MCS devices are an important consideration for the treatment of various etiologies of cardiac dysfunction, starting in the emergency department. Despite their implementation, mortality rates for CS remain high. As healthcare providers continue to weigh the benefits and costs of AMCS use, further research is needed on which combination of factors best reduce mortality.

  • Wernicke’s Encephalopathy in the Absence of Alcohol Use

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose of Review This review summarizes the clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and treatment of Wernicke’s encephalopathy (WE) in the absence of alcohol use. Emergency physicians are well-acquainted with the disorder when associated with alcohol, but this reversible disease should be considered as part of the differential in numerous other patient populations. Recent Findings Treatment for WE has not changed significantly, and standard of care continues to be high-dose thiamine, although dosing and duration vary between different society guidelines. Radiographic evidence of disease continues to evolve. More recent literature focuses on at-risk groups more so than advances in treatment and includes numerous case reports of patients with non-alcoholic WE with etiologies such as gastric surgery, cancer, and HIV/AIDS. Summary Timely identification of WE in the emergency department leads to more rapid treatment with high-dose thiamine and reduced morbidity. Because there is evidence that WE may be under-diagnosed and treatment is both low risk and cost-effective, wider consideration of at-risk individuals and more research into treatment specifically among those with non-alcoholic WE are warranted.

  • Utilizing Virtual Reality for Distraction in Emergency Care

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose of Review This paper will review the published literature involving virtual reality as a tool for distraction during emergency department waiting periods and minor procedures, with a special emphasis on virtual reality’s analgesic and anxiolytic potential. Recent Findings With virtual reality becoming increasingly accessible and affordable, clinicians have started utilizing virtual reality as an intervention in the emergency department for pediatric and adult patients. These interventions have been implemented during waiting periods and minor procedures, showing promise for anxiolysis, analgesia, and distress management. Summary This paper summarizes the evolution of virtual reality use in patient interventions, with a focus on emergency department applications, logistical considerations, and future directions. Virtual reality is not discussed as a replacement for pharmaceuticals; rather, it is compared against inconsistent standard-of-care distractions (e.g., televisions, tablets) as a more immersive option. Positive findings with this technology are tempered by the limitations of current research, but VR still holds great potential.

  • Competitive Diving Injuries: An Epidemiologic Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose of Review This publication summarizes the published epidemiologic data with respect to injuries sustained in competitive diving to provide insight into the associated risk factors, patterns, and impact of injury. Recent Findings Several recent publications have presented injury surveillance data from competitive diving at the high school, collegiate, and international levels. These have not, to our knowledge, been summarized and analyzed together in the literature. Summary Competitive diving poses unique risks for both traumatic and overuse injuries in practice and competition. Head, cervical spine, shoulder, and lumbar spine injuries among others are not uncommon, though rates vary significantly in the literature. Existing data suggest that as the level of competition elevates, traumatic injuries (including head injury) become relatively less common, while overuse injuries predominate. There remains a need for further injury surveillance, with increased participation in data collection at every level of competition, and distinction of competitive diving injuries from those of swimming.

  • Humans vs. Machines: Mechanical Compression Devices and Their Appropriate
           Application in the Management of Cardiac Arrest

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose of Review This paper reviews the published literature on mechanical compression devices compared to manual compressions to provide clinicians with an overview of the implementation and efficacy. Recent Findings The 2020 American Heart Association guidelines now recommend mechanical compression devices under certain circumstances, prompting further discussion of the benefits and risks. Pre-clinical studies have shown marked advantages in organ perfusion and cerebral blood flow with external chest compression provided by mechanical devices when compared to manual compression. However, clinical reports have provided conflicting evidence of benefit, with some studies suggesting harm to those patients receiving mechanical compressions. Summary The use of mechanical chest compression devices appears to offer some clinical benefit to victims of cardiac arrest under certain conditions, including prolonged emergency medical services transport, difficult patient extrication, interventional procedures, and organ requisition. Harms include increased rates of solid organ and great vessel injury, thoracic cage fractures, and delays in time to defibrillation. Additional research is needed to evaluate newer devices and their potential integration into modern cardiac arrest care algorithms.

  • Kawasaki Disease: Recent Diagnostics, Treatment, and Predictors for
           Treatment Failure and Coronary Artery Involvement

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose of Review Kawasaki disease (KD) is a medium vessel vasculitis in pediatric patients with a predilection for coronary artery involvement. The disease can be complete or incomplete but generally consists of a fever longer than 5 days, bilateral conjunctivitis, rash, edema, cervical adenopathy, and mucosal involvement. Mainstay of therapy includes IV immunoglobulin and aspirin. The goal of this article is to identify recent research that focuses on the newest diagnostic tools, predictive factors for coronary involvement, and treatment failure, as well as the most recent literature on treatment. Recent Findings New diagnostic tools have been described that help separate febrile children with KD by only using lab parameters rather than subjective, clinical findings. We explore recent publications on several factors that can predict coronary artery involvement in Kawasaki disease as well as IV immunoglobulin (IVIG) failure including biomarkers such as C-reactive protein (CRP), genetic variants, male sex, and myocardial strain imaging. Summary Early suspicion and recognition of Kawasaki disease are essential for timely treatment so that devastating cardiovascular complications can be prevented. Further research is needed to develop and validate predictive models that can be used clinically to diagnose our pediatric population, identify patients at higher risk for coronary involvement, and identify those at risk for treatment failure.

      Abstract: Purpose of Review This review aims to provide a comprehensive overview of emergency department management of central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO). It examines common presentations, etiologies, workup, and various treatment options with their evidence. Recent Findings There is limited research on CRAO. Most treatment methods and guidelines are based on observational literature, case series, retrospective studies, and expert opinion. Many of the treatments available to the emergency provider have limited success. More advanced treatments with hyperbaric therapy or thrombolytics are becoming more established. Summary Workup for CRAO should focus on establishing the etiology of the event. There are many treatment options available to the emergency provider, including emergent hyperbaric oxygen therapy and thrombolytics. Emergency department care should occur in conjunction with ophthalmology and neurology. Much of the treatment is guided towards preventing future cardiovascular events.

  • Long-Covid and Pain: Pathophysiology and Management

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose of Review Since its origin on December 12, 2019, SARS-CoV-2 has shaken the globe, and while pandemic restrictions have lifted, many individuals who survived the acute viral infection continue to suffer chronically from complications for months and even years. Recent Findings The physiologic, multi-organ complications related to this viral infection can be severe. The ongoing symptoms of SAR-CoV-2 extending beyond 4 weeks are referred to as Long-Covid, with the most common complaints being related to pain. As the pathophysiology continues to be investigated, the current hypothesis is that the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptor plays a major role in the spread of the virus throughout multiple organ systems leading to pain, inflammation, fibrosis, and vasoconstriction. Currently, there is limited research regarding the pathophysiology of Long-Covid and why there is such variability amongst patients in regard to severity, duration, and organ system involvement. Summary This review attempts to outline the current understanding of Long-Covid pathophysiology and summarizes management strategies, particularly pain control, for those currently affected by its symptoms and their treating providers.

  • Coccidioidomycosis Update and Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose of Review Coccidioidomycosis is a nationally notifiable fungal infection with mandatory reporting in 26 states and the District of Colombia. Identifying patients at risk for coccidioidomycosis infection, ordering appropriate testing, and understanding criteria for pharmacologic treatment are important to management of the disease. Recent Findings Cases of coccidioidomycosis are increasing. Surveillance studies show significant diagnostic delay and frequent mistreatment with antibiotics in both endemic areas, and especially when travel acquired cases present in non-endemic states. Studies of physician practice demonstrate that most providers infrequently test for coccidioidomycosis and are uncomfortable with their ability to diagnose or treat the disease. Recent modeling demonstrates that climate change is likely to expand the endemic area of Coccidioides species resulting in further increase in disease burden. Summary Patients infected with coccidioidomycosis often present to the emergency department during their disease course, and many patients go undiagnosed until hospital admission. The goal of this review is to keep health care practitioners up to date on current information and recommendations to improve diagnosis, treatment, and epidemiologic data for coccidioidomycosis.

  • Devices Used in the Treatment of Tension Pneumothorax

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose of Review This review will describe pathophysiology, current emergency department (ED) treatment strategies, and novel devices used in the management of acute tension pneumothorax. Recent Findings Traditional decompression success rates for the treatment of acute tension pneumothorax utilizing a standard 5-cm angiocatheter are inadequate in many cases. Novel devices and anatomical approaches have recently been developed to improve upon the rate of successful decompression and treatment. Summary Recent studies have shown greater success in emergent decompression of acute tension pneumothorax at the 4th or 5th intercostal space along the anterior axillary line, when compared to the traditional decompression site at the 2nd or 3rd intercostal space at the mid clavicular line. The standard 5-cm catheter used for decompression may not be long enough in many patients to reach the intrapleural space at the 2nd intercostal space along the mid clavicular line. The use of an 8-cm angiocatheter may be required at the 4th or 5th intercostal insertion site at the anterior axillary line. Novel decompression devices have been studied in animal models with improved success rates and quicker time to restoration of normal physiology. Devices described in this review include the modified Veress needle and the Reactor™ device. Human clinical trials are needed to confirm the safety and efficacy of these devices for clinical use.

           Treatment

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose of Review Adults 65 years and older represent a rapidly growing population in the USA and worldwide. Today, 16.8% of the US population is over 65, with an estimate that 20% of Americans will be over 65 by 2030. This review analyzes the complexities involved with preventing and managing geriatric injury. Recent Findings Geriatric injury represents nearly 50% of all traumas, with ground-level falls and motor vehicle crashes being the most common mechanisms, resulting in predictable injury patterns. Conscientious medical and surgical management from the emergency department to discharge and beyond is paramount, as is enhancing geriatric injury prevention strategies.

  • Mpox in the Emergency Department

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose of Review This paper provides a comprehensive review of mpox for emergency medicine providers. Despite the disease existing in endemic regions for decades, substantial knowledge gaps remain. This review covers the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mpox. Recent Findings Since the 2022 outbreak began, there have been more than 80,000 cases of mpox. The disease manifests as a rash in most cases. Diagnosis is challenging due to the great variability in rash presentation and similarity with other cutaneous diseases, however, PCR testing can confirm mpox. Antiviral therapies are available under a compassionate use protocol for severe cases. Vaccines are available for those with exposure or at high risk for exposure. Summary Limited preliminary data suggest effectiveness of some antiviral therapies and vaccines. Ongoing studies will determine their safety and efficacy. Emergency medicine providers must remain up to date regarding these studies to provide appropriate treatment and prevent the spread of mpox.

  • The Role of Albumin in the Resuscitation of Hypotensive Patients

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose of Review Albumin is a colloid used in fluid resuscitation, with intrinsic physiologic properties that make it ideal to use for certain hypotensive patients. Despite this, its indications for use in this context are the source of much debate. This review aims to provide an overview of the history of albumin, explain its rise and fall in popularity, and identify situations where use of albumin may be beneficial over other forms of fluid resuscitation. Recent Findings The use of albumin dropped significantly in 1998 after a review article was published suggesting that it was harmful to use in critically ill patients. It was not until 2004 and 2014 when the first large-scale randomized control trials were performed demonstrating that albumin administration in certain hypotensive critically ill patients was associated with decreased morbidity and mortality. Summary Compared to other fluids, albumin appears to be safe for most patient populations. Choice of resuscitation fluid is partly provider dependent; however, there is an increasing body of evidence supporting albumin use associated with improved patient outcomes.

  • Hypertonic Saline in the Critically Ill: A Review of Indications, Routes,
           and Dosing

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose of Review In this article, we review the use of hypertonic saline (HTS) for FDA-approved indications, namely treatment of hyponatremia and elevated intracranial pressure (ICP), as well as the routes of administration appropriate for infusion. Recent Findings Though society guidelines for treating hyponatremia have not recently changed, new data is emerging that supports the use of bolus-based HTS treatment regimens. HTS is at least as effective as mannitol for lowering elevated ICP from cerebral edema and is also now the preferred hyperosmolar treatment in patients with intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Central venous catheter (CVC) has been recommended in the past for HTS infusions, but emerging data suggest infusion via peripheral intravenous catheters (IV) is likely safe and may be worth avoiding the time intensive and potentially harmful process of placing a CVC. Summary HTS infusion via peripheral IV appears to be safe, effective, and more time efficient than infusion via CVC in treating acute hyponatremia and increased ICP.
