CORE EM: Pharmacology of Insulins - emdocs

Insulin was first licensed for human use in 1922. Since then, numerous formulations with various similar names have been produced and marketed. Because the names of the different drugs are often very similar (novolin vs novalog) it can difficult for emergency providers to keep all of the agents straight. In this post, we discuss the categories of insulins, the nomenclature and the pharmacokinetics of the most commonly used agents.

EM Cases: Hand Emergencies - emdocs

Dr. Andrew Arcand & Dr. Laura Tate discuss the key clinical pearls and pitfalls in the recognition and management of many apparently benign hand emergencies that have serious morbidity, including high pressure injection injury, flexor tenosynovitis, gamekeeper’s thumb (or skier’s thumb), fight bites, hook of the hammate fractures and many more important hand emergencies. Dr. Tate & Arcand answer such questions as: which lacerations require prophylactic antibiotics? Which hand lacerations do not require sutures? How is rotational deformity best tested for metacarpal fractures? What are the pearls of tendon repair? How do you test for instability when you suspect a Gamekeeper’s thumb? How is compartment syndrome of the hand different to compartment syndrome in the leg? What are Kanavel’s signs of tenosynovitis? How should felons be managed in the ED? What are the most common errors that plastic surgeons see ED docs make?
