Pause for thought… Saying “I don’t know”

By Lynfa Stroud  “True wisdom is knowing what you don’t know.” – Confucius I ended my last post saying I was going to follow-up with residents’ perceptions of score versus comments on ITERs, but I’m taking the blogger’s prerogative and putting that on the back burner until next time.

"Dry drowning" the summer medical oxymoron

Undoubtedly you will see a child with a “near drowning” if you work in the ED during the summer. Most children are fine, even those that received some back blows, mouth to mouth or some semblance of bystander rescue maneuvers. Asymptomatic children (no respiratory symptoms) can be safely discharged home. Those that are having difficulty breathing or other symptoms should receive appropriate respiratory support and be followed closely clinically and with chest x-rays when the situation changes. All symptomatic children should be admitted to the hospital.

procedural-sedation-propofol-or-ketofol

It’s Caturday night and you have a young, healthy male in your ED who dislocates his shoulder for the first time just 30 minutes prior to arrival. He seems like the purrfect candidate to perform a reduction without sedation, and you are paws-itive you can get the joint back in its place. You give some morphine and go for it right meow. Unfortunately, no luck. He states there is too much pain. Ultrasound guru Phil Andrus is your attending so you inject lidocaine into his shoulder joint via an ultrasound-guided spinal needle. Still no success. You think to yourself: you have got to be kitten me!
