The purpose of these lectures is to update the diagnosis and management of topics of critical importance in the management of medical and pediatric emergencies. The subject of pain management in an era of narcotic abuse has been at the forefront of emergency care as well as public interest of late. The provision of pain relief is one of the sacred missions of emergency care. Yet, providers and patients are scrutinized alike in an age where narcotics kill as many patients as trauma does. How we collectively deal with painful conditions affects how we manage any painful condition.
The science of resuscitation from cardiac arrest has been evolving continuously, and has been translated into clinical practice on a regular basis. How this impacts on patient care will affect the practice of primary and emergency cardiac care, as well as intensive care, radiology, and neurology critical care. Targeted temperature management has gained acceptance, and ECMO may not be far behind.
The practice of medicine in general, and emergency care in particular, is affected by medico-legal considerations. One lecture is dedicated to an assessment and overview of how emergency care is impacted by this, with case overview and consideration for patient satisfaction and risk management. The evaluation of the patient with syncope or loss of consciousness from any cause entails resource management, as well as concern for many serious medical entities. One lecture will review guidelines set forth on an ongoing basis, with recommendations for evaluation and resource management given present evidence. Evaluation of pediatric emergencies will center of two presentations which may herald potentially lethal events: fever and trauma. Each has an extensive body of science attached to it, and these lectures will sort out science and recommendations as a clinical practice has evolved.
The field of toxicology is continually evolving. Street drugs abound which did not even exist a decade ago. Antidotes have not historically been as important as supportive care, and the role of some of these is continually being defined.
