Inside The August 2015 Issue:

Lesson 15:  Imaging in Pediatric Abdominal Pain –

Abdominal pain is a common complaint in pediatric patients, but children are vulnerable to a variety of serious conditions that can present as this seemingly benign complaint. In such cases, emergency physicians must possess a keen diagnostic acumen to prevent major complications and death, as well as a thorough understanding of the appropriate and efficient diagnostic imaging tools to implement, while mitigating the risks of ionizing radiation.

Lesson 16:  Procedural Sedation and Analgesia –

Procedural sedation frequently is used in the emergency department for the management of pain and anxiety – a protocol that enables patients to tolerate uncomfortable or unpleasant procedures. Emergency physicians must possess a thorough understanding of how to administer these medications, monitor
patients, and manage any complications that might arise.
