Inside The September  2014 Issue:

Lesson 17      Skin and Soft Tissue Infections—Cellulitis and Abscesses

Skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) present with varying degrees of severity. Potential complications arise from misdiagnosis, overtreatment, or undertreatment. This lesson reviews the appropriate evaluation of and intervention for commonly occurring SSTIs and recommendations on treatment, disposition, and prevention of recurrent SSTIs.

Lesson 18     Treatment of Acute Heart Failure

Of the one million heart failure patients admitted to hospitals annually, 80% initially present to an emergency department. Emergency physicians have a critical role in diagnosis, risk stratification, immediate treatment, prognosis, and downstream outcomes for these patients, necessitating an understanding of the latest research and consensus opinion for optimal management.
