  • Enneagram in EM

    • Authors: Cifuni; Megan , Pfennig, Cami , Astemborski, Caroline
      Abstract: Audience: This is a lecture paired with facilitated small group sessions and is targeted towards emergency medicine residents and physicians.Background:The enneagram is a well-established and popular personality theory that asserts that there are nine basic personality types, and that each enneagram type, 1-9, operates from a basic fear and a basic desire that produces predictable behavioral patterns and preferences.1-2 The enneagram has long been used as a tool to enhance self-awareness and to better understand internal defenses and reactions,3-5and as such, it has been increasingly utilized to enhance self-growth and development in the fields of education, parenting, and business.6-7 While some studies have used the enneagram as a tool to predict natural empathy or stress levels of those in the medical field, particularly in nursing and medical school students,8-9 little has been published on the use of the enneagram as a tool to enhance...

  • Inhalational Injury Secondary to House Fire

    • Authors: O'Neill; Ryan , Ostro, Benjamin M , Yee, Jennifer
      Abstract: Audience:This scenario was developed to educate emergency medicine residents on the diagnosis and management of patients with an inhalational airway injury secondary to a house fire. Background: Burn injuries are a common occurrence encountered by the emergency physician. According to the National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey, around 371,000 patients were treated in emergency departments for fire or burn injuries across the United States in 2020. This represents around 1% of emergency department visits related to injury, poisoning, or adverse effects.1 One of the most dangerous and time critical aspects of managing severely burned patients is inhalation injury. Inhalation injury is a relatively vague term which may refer to pulmonary exposure to a wide range of chemicals in various forms. In the context of burn patients, this is most often smoke exposure. It is critical that the emergency medicine provider rapidly identifies the...

  • Sonographic Retrobulbar Spot Sign in Diagnosis of Central Retinal Artery
           Occlusion: A Case Report

    • Authors: Usheva; Emiliya , Williams, Dustin , Musgrave, Haley , Zhou, Scott
      Abstract: Central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) is a rare emergency department presentation with high morbidity and potential for long-term vision loss. Additionally, this finding requires an expeditious embolic workup for possible systemic pathology (i.e., stroke). The gold standard for diagnosis is visualization of a pale retina with a “cherry-red spot” on the fovea seen under dilated fundoscopic examination. However, performing a dilated fundoscopic exam is often not practical and technically challenging in the emergency room setting. Alternatively, point of care ultrasound is an inexpensive, non-invasive tool that is already highly utilized in the emergency department and can aid in diagnosis. In the case described in this report, a 66-year-old female presented to the emergency department with painless, monocular vision loss. Ultrasound showed a hyperechoic density on the distal aspect of the optic nerve (“retrobulbar spot sign”) and dilated fundoscopic exam showed right eye pale...

  • Point-Of-Care Ultrasound Use for Detection of Multiple Metallic Foreign
           Body Ingestion in the Pediatric Emergency Department: A Case Report

    • Authors: Bella; Sarah , Heiney, Joseph , Patwa, Amy
      Abstract: Foreign body ingestions are common complaints in the pediatric emergency department that can be difficult to diagnose in patients with vague symptoms. Magnetic foreign body ingestion can cause significant morbidity and mortality in children. Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is an imaging modality that can be used to readily diagnose emergent abdominal pathology in a timely matter at the patient’s bedside. In the case described in the report below, a 6-year-old male swallowed multiple round magnets, causing severe abdominal pain. This was detected on POCUS.  An abdominal radiograph also confirmed the POCUS findings of multiple hyperechoic round foreign bodies. Key clinical features and sonographic findings are discussed that may help clinicians using POCUS to identify ingested foreign bodies in Pediatric Emergency Departments.Topics: Point-of-care ultrasound, pediatric emergency medicine, foreign body ingestion.

  • Ventricular Tachycardia

    • Authors: Menon; Rohit , Emerson, Geremiha , Yee, Jennifer
      Abstract: Audience: This scenario was developed to educate emergency medicine residents on the diagnosis and management of ventricular tachycardia (VT) that is refractory to single dose anti-arrhythmic management.Background:Electrical storm, defined as three or more episodes of sustained VT, ventricular fibrillation, or appropriate shocks from an implantable cardioverter defibrillator within 24 hours,1 has a mortality rate up to 14% in the first 48 hours.2 Ventricular tachycardia may present in a heterogenous fashion, not only with stable versus unstable clinical presentations, but also with different electrocardiographic morphologies and etiologies.1 Understanding how to rapidly diagnose, treat, and utilize second or third-line treatments is vital in the setting of refractory ventricular tachycardia rather than relying on the success of first-line agents. Appreciation for what medications are readily available in your crash cart and medication...

  • Adolescent with Diabetic Ketoacidosis, Hypothermia and Pneumomediastinum

    • Authors: Millner; Steven , Devlin, Courtney
      Abstract: Audience: The target audience of this simulation is emergency medicine residents and medical students.  The simulation is based on a real case of a 12-year-old male who presented obtunded with shortness of breath and hypothermia who was ultimately diagnosed with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and pneumomediastinum.  This case highlights the diagnosis and management of an adolescent with new onset diabetic ketoacidosis and pneumomediastinum with deterioration of status, as well as important ventilator settings if intubation is required in the setting of diabetic ketoacidosis.Background:Type 1 diabetes is a common disease in the pediatric population with the prevalence being approximately 2.15 per 1000 youths and diabetic ketoacidosis being the presenting status in 30-40% of the patients.1 Physicians who evaluate a child with altered mental status must have diabetic ketoacidosis in their differential. In the setting of mechanical...

  • Low-Cost Fishhook Removal Simulation

    • Authors: Baskin; David Mitchell , Davis, Christopher Ashby
      Abstract: Audience: The target audiences for this hands-on innovation are health care providers including medical students and emergency medicine residents. This simulation is also appropriate for small group sessions teaching the layperson.Background:While generally not life-threating fishhook injuries are commonplace. They can end a day of recreation or an outdoor trip and possibly result in a visit to an emergency department or urgent care. Hands-on education on fishhook removal techniques that minimize tissue damage is rarely provided in wilderness first aid or traditional medical education. To the best of our knowledge, to date there are only two studies on fishhook removal simulations in medical and wilderness first aid education.1,2 The previously described simulation models are limited by accessibility of materials, realism, and cost.Educational Objectives:The goal of this small group session is to fill the gap...

  • Infant Botulism

    • Authors: Garispe; DO, Ashley , Cherry, MD, Steven
      Abstract: ABSTRACT:Audience: This oral board case is appropriate for emergency medicine residents and medical students (with senior resident assistance) on emergency medicine rotation.Introduction: Although a somewhat rare disease, infant botulism is a true pediatric emergency that carried a 90% rate of mortality prior to the development of an antitoxin.1 While botulism infections can be iatrogenic, foodborne, or involve infected wounds, infant botulism remains the most common presentation of this disease and accounts for approximately 70% of new cases annually.2 Caused by Clostridium botulinum, the inactive spores are ingested by the infant and germinate in the large intestine.3,4 The resulting neurotoxin prevents the release of acetylcholine at the presynaptic membrane which results in flaccid paralysis. Classically, the bulbar musculature is affected before somatic muscular, which results in the typical presentation of “descending paralysis.”2,5 While confirmatory testing is...

  • Headache Over Heels: CT Negative Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    • Authors: Hogan; MD, Sarah , Dimeo, MD, MEHP, Sara , Astemborski, MD, MEHP, Caroline
      Abstract: ABSTRACT:Audience: This simulation is intended for MS4 or PGY-1 learners.Introduction: Both headache and syncope are common chief complaints in the emergency department (ED); however, subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is uncommon (accounting for 1-3% of all patients presenting to the ED with headache), with near 50% mortality.1-3 It is important to recognize the signs and symptoms that point to this specific diagnosis. Once subarachnoid hemorrhage is suspected, it is critical to understand the appropriate workup to diagnose SAH, depending on the timing of presentation. Once SAH is diagnosed, appropriately managing the patient’s glucose, blood pressure, and pain is important.Educational Objectives: By the end of this case, the participant will be able to: 1) construct a broad differential diagnosis for a patient presenting with syncope, 2) name the history and physical exam findings consistent with SAH, 3) identify SAH on computer tomography (CT) imaging, 4) identify...

  • Alcohol Withdrawal with Delirium Tremens

    • Authors: Schwebach; MD, Courtney , Vempati, MD, Amrita
      Abstract: ABSTRACT:Audience: Emergency medicine (EM) residents (1st year and 2nd year levels), 4th year medical students and advanced practice providersIntroduction:Alcohol use has played a major role in causing significant morbidity and mortality for patients. In 2016, it was the 7th leading risk factor for deaths and disability-adjusted life years globally.1 Among heavy alcohol users admitted for hospital management, the incidence of alcohol withdrawal syndrome is estimated to be 1.9 to 6.7%.1 Alcohol withdrawal (AW) in the ED has been associated with increased use of critical care resources, and frequent ED visits for alcohol-related presentations have been associated with mortality rates that are about 1-4% when withdrawal progresses to delirium tremens (DTs).1 Patients with alcohol withdrawal can present in many different ways to the ED including anxiety, tachycardia, delirium tremens (DTs), seizures and severe autonomic dysfunction leading...

  • A Patient with Generalized Weakness – A Case Report

    • Authors: Graham; MS, Darby , Kaur, MD, Manparbodh , Costumbrado, MD, John , Ghassemzadeh, MD, Sassan
      Abstract: ABSTRACT:Emphysematous pyelonephritis (EPN) is a rare and life-threatening sequalae of a urinary tract infection marked by a gas-producing necrotizing infection of the renal parenchyma requiring prompt treatment. It has been found to be correlated with uncontrolled diabetes mellitus and is more common in females due to their increased susceptibility to urinary tract infections. Early recognition and treatment of EPN are essential to improve the patient's prognosis and prevent further complications. In this case we highlight a progressive case of pyelonephritis complicated by emphysematous abscess formation requiring surgical management. A 49-year-old female with a history of diabetes, hypertension, asthma, and lupus who presented to the emergency department (ED) for evaluation of generalized weakness. Lactate was elevated and urinalysis was suggestive of infection. A computed tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen and pelvis revealed a large subcapsular fluid collection with multiple...

  • Everyday Water-Related Emergencies: A Didactic Course Expanding Wilderness
           Medicine Education

    • Authors: Comp; DO, Geoffrey , Burmood, DO, Erica , Enenbach, DO, Molly , Seigneur, DO, Savannah
      Abstract: ABSTRACT:Audience: This small group session is appropriate for any level of emergency medicine resident physicians.Introduction: Drowning is defined as the process of experiencing respiratory impairment from submersion or immersion in liquid. It is the third leading cause of unintentional injury-related deaths worldwide, accounting for 7% of all injury-related deaths.1 Our group sought to improve resident education regarding the basics of water safety and rescues as an event developed by our wilderness medicine (WM) interest group. With the growing number of WM Fellowships, specialty tracks, interest clubs and the regular inclusion of WM topics in residency didactics, exposure to WM topics has increased greatly.2 There is a large overlap between wilderness medicine and the field of emergency medicine. Both require stabilization, improvisation, and the treatment of environmental/exposure illnesses. It is imperative that emergency medicine physicians understand the complex...

  • A Homemade, Cost-Effective, Realistic Pelvic Exam Model

    • Authors: Godsey; MD, Jessie , Kott, MD, Ilya rkott@hs.uci.edu , Payden, Adrienne , Ward, Patricia
      Abstract: ABSTRACT:Audience: This innovation is intended to instruct medical students, residents of all levels, and mid-level practitioners.Background: Pelvic examinations are essential components to clinical practice but are challenging to teach, learn, and practice on live patients secondary to patient comfort because this is an invasive procedure.1 Resident physicians and medical students traditionally learn these methods through observation while actively working in their department or clinics.2 Simulation models can improve a provider’s competency and confidence performing pelvic examinations which improve patient comfort and exam accuracy.3 One barrier to simulation training is the cost of the pelvic simulator models. A basic pelvic exam simulator costs $365.4 The cost is high, therefore limiting the availability of a simulation model accessible to residency programs across the country. This barrier to pelvic models was overcome by developing a homemade alternative for cervical...

           Newly-Diagnosed Diabetic Patient

    • Authors: Davis; BS, Konnor , Almog, MD, Roy , Peleg, MD, MBA, Yuval , Spiegelman, MD, MBA, Lindsey
      Abstract: ABSTRACT:This is a case report of a 46-year-old female with undiagnosed diabetes, COVID-19, and mucormycosis. Mucormycosis is a rare, rapidly progressive disease process characterized by an insidious onset of vague symptoms and is associated with a high mortality rate. The patient initially presented at two outside ophthalmology clinics due to right eye pain and was prescribed steroids. Upon presentation to our institution’s Emergency Department, the patient’s pain had significantly increased along with new symptoms of ptosis and failure to adduct the right eye. Laboratory results demonstrated leukocytosis, hyperglycemia, and a positive SARS-CoV-2 test. Magnetic resonance imaging confirmed a diagnosis of mucormycosis and the patient underwent surgery and began intravenous antifungal therapy. This discussion addresses the presenting features of mucormycosis in the emergency department while highlighting the need for immediate investigation due to the fungi’s rapidly progressive...

  • Acute Pulmonary Edema and NSTEMI

    • Authors: Pilgrim; MD, Ashley
      Abstract: ABSTRACT:Audience: Emergency medicine residents and medical students on emergency medicine rotation.Introduction: Acute pulmonary edema is a common and potentially fatal presentation in the emergency department. More than 1 million patients are admitted annually with a diagnosis of pulmonary edema secondary to cardiac causes.1 Pulmonary edema is broadly split into two main categories: cardiogenic and noncardiogenic. Cardiogenic pulmonary edema is characterized by acute dyspnea caused by the accumulation of fluid within the lung’s interstitial and/or alveolar spaces, which is the result of acutely elevated cardiac filling pressures.2 Noncardiogenic pulmonary edema is characterized by fluid accumulation within the alveolar space in the absence of elevated pulmonary capillary wedge pressure.2 These patients often present critically ill, and rapid identification and aggressive management is paramount in caring for patients with pulmonary edema. Dyspnea is the most common...

  • Trauma by Couch: A Case Report of a Massive Traumatic Retroperitoneal
           Hematoma

    • Authors: Smith; BSN, Cassandra , Stephenson, MD, Graham , Wray, MD, MAEd, Alisa , Hatter, BS, Matthew
      Abstract: ABSTRACT:The authors present the case of a 42-year-old male who was evaluated in a community hospital emergency department (ED) with right upper quadrant and flank pain after falling onto his couch. His evaluation included computed tomography (CT) of his abdomen with intravenous contrast that identified a large right retroperitoneal hematoma measuring an impressive 17 centimeters (cm) in length. The patient was transferred to a receiving trauma center. Upon arrival a focused assessment with sonography in trauma (FAST) ultrasound was obtained. The interpretation of the findings was complicated by distortion of his anatomy by the hematoma. The patient remained hemodynamically stable and was admitted for continued observation. He was ultimately discharged home in stable condition. This case report provides a concise overview of the approach to evaluating blunt abdominal trauma, imaging considerations, and a brief review of the management of retroperitoneal hematomas.Topics:...
