4. Tobacco control interventions in the emergency department: a joint statement of emergency medicine organizations.
Match Strength: 8.508

Smoking is the leading cause of preventable death and illness in the United States. National practice guidelines call for all health care providers to "ask" all patients about tobacco use, and to "advise, assess, assist, arrange" when smokers want to quit smoking (the "5 As"). Emergency departments (EDs) have not been an important locus of tobacco control efforts, although ED patients typically smoke at rates exceeding that of the general population, are interested in quitting, and often have limited access to primary care. To address the role of emergency medicine in tobacco control, the ... Read More »

7. Is digital intubation an option for emergency physicians in definitive airway management?
Match Strength: 8.282

OBJECTIVES: This study was designed to determine whether digital intubation is a valid option for definitive airway control by emergency physicians. METHODS: Digital intubation was performed by 18 emergency medicine residents and 4 staff emergency medicine physicians on 6 different cadavers. Placement was confirmed by direct laryngoscopy. The total time for all attempts used, as well as the number of attempts, was recorded. Each participant attempted intubation on all 6 cadavers.

11. The role of the emergency department in the care of homeless and disadvantaged populations.
Match Strength: 7.473

This article provides an overview of the role of the emergency department (ED) in the care of homeless and disadvantaged populations. It suggests that organized emergency medicine can have a significant impact on total community health by maintaining a universal "safety net" for the delivery of integrated health and human services.

12. Methods of categorizing emergency department visit urgency: a survey of pediatric emergency medicine physicians.
Match Strength: 7.124

OBJECTIVE: Between 20% and 80% of emergency department (ED) visits are nonurgent. This variability in estimates is partially due to the multiple classification methods used, none of which has undergone validity or reliability testing. Our objectives were to determine the methods thought to be most valid and to understand expert perceptions of nonurgent ED utilization. METHODS: A survey of the Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) Special Interest Group at the 2005 Pediatric Academic Societies meeting was conducted. An education session with case-based discussion for categorizing ED visit urgency ... Read More »

13. Pay for Performance in Emergency Medicine.
Match Strength: 7.034

One of the latest market-based solutions to the rising costs and quality gaps in health care is pay for performance. Pay for performance is the use of financial incentives to promote the delivery of designated standards of care. Pay for performance represents a dramatic change in the reimbursement of providers, from fixed rates or fees, to variable compensation based on the quality of care. This article serves as an introduction to pay for performance. I discuss the goals and structure of pay for performance plans and their limitations and potential consequences in the health care arena. A ... Read More »

15. The use of intramuscular benzodiazepines and antipsychotic agents in the treatment of acute agitation or violence in the emergency department.
Match Strength: 6.262

The management of an agitated, abusive or violent patient is a common and challenging problem in Emergency Medicine. Priorities include measures to ensure the safety of the patient and the emergency staff, including provision of physical restraint of the patient and evaluation for correctable medical causes of such behavior. Medications used in the treatment of such patients include benzodiazepines and antipsychotic agents. The newer atypical antipsychotic agents seem to provide a safe and effective treatment for such patients. The atypical antipsychotic agents may have fewer short-term side ... Read More »

Match Strength: 6.017

OBJECTIVES: Children presenting with sport related injuries (SRIs) as a result of soccer, rugby and gaelic football are frequently seen in an emergency medicine (EM) setting in Ireland. A comparison of the demographics of injuries in these three sports has however not previously been performed. The purpose of this study was to provide up-to-date data on the nature of these SRIs. METHOD: Data was collected retrospectively on all children (<17 years of age), injured in these three sports, presenting to an emergency medicine department over 6 months, and was entered into a database for ... Read More »

Match Strength: 5.715

STUDY OBJECTIVE: We determine frequency and manner in which emergency physicians address smoking with their patients. METHODS: This was a descriptive secondary analysis of 871 audiotapes of physician-patient interactions collected during a trial assessing the effect of computer-based health risk assessment on emergency physician-patient communication. Consenting nonemergency female patients, ages 18 to 65 years, were enrolled from 2 socioeconomically diverse academic emergency department (EDs) for audiotaping of the ED visit. All audio files with any mention of smoking were independently coded ... Read More »

18. Prevalence of tubo-ovarian abscess in adolescents diagnosed with pelvic inflammatory disease in a pediatric emergency department.
Match Strength: 4.447

OBJECTIVES: The rate of tubo-ovarian abscess (TOA) in adolescents with pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is reported to range from 17% to 20%. However, no reports have focused specifically on the adolescent patient presenting to the emergency department (ED), regardless of whether they are treated in the inpatient or outpatient setting. Recent changes in the 2002 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Guidelines for the Treatment of Sexually Transmitted Diseases and sexually transmitted infection screening programs are likely to have impacted both the prevalence of PID and the rates ... Read More »

19. Rationale for establishing regional ST-elevation myocardial infarction receiving center (SRC) networks.
Match Strength: 4.384

Recent developments have provided a unique opportunity for the organization of regional ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) receiving center (SRC) networks. Because cumulative evidence has demonstrated that rapid primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is the most effective reperfusion strategy for acute STEMI, the development of integrated SRC networks could extend the benefits of primary PCI to a much larger segment of the US population. Factors that favor the development of regional SRC networks include results from recently published clinical trials, insight into ... Read More »

20. The Health Commons and care of New Mexico's uninsured.
Match Strength: 4.092

PURPOSE: A seamless system of social, behavioral, and medical services for the uninsured was created to address the social determinants of disease, reduce health disparities, and foster local economic development in 2 inner-city neighborhoods and 2 rural counties in New Mexico. METHODS: Our family medicine department helped urban and rural communities that had large uninsured, minority populations create Health Commons models. These models of care are characterized by health planning shared by community stakeholders; 1-stop shopping for medical, behavioral, and social services; employment of ... Read More »
