Sight for Sore Eyes
The majority of red eye presentations are easily managed in the acute setting; however, clinicians must be adept at distinguishing between relatively benign, self-limited processes and vision-threatening pathologies requiring emergent ophthalmological evaluation. More than 2 million patients visit US emergency departments every year for eye-related complaints; chief among these are preseptal cellulitis, orbital cellulitis, and conjunctivitis.

Gut Reaction
Trauma to the torso is the second most frequent cause of death in children. More than 80% of these cases can be attributed to blunt abdominal trauma, which is the most common unrecognized fatal injury in pediatric patients. The prompt recognition and initial management of intraabdominal injuries, particularly following motor vehicle collisions and falls, is of utmost importance to reduce the significant risk of morbidity and mor
tality.
