Procainamide vs. Amiodarone for Stable Ventricular Tachycardia.

Acad Emerg Med 2019 Apr 19. Epub 2019 Apr 19.

Department of Emergency Medicine, SUNY Downstate Medical Center, 450 Clarkson Ave., Box: 1228, Brooklyn, NY, 11203.

Electrical cardioversion is an effective treatment for termination of ventricular tachycardia (VT) but is typically performed with procedural sedation, and thus involves associated risk. In hemodynamically stable VT, pharmacologic cardioversion is an option. Historically, lidocaine, amiodarone, procainamide, and sotalol have been used for pharmacologic cardioversion, based mostly upon expert opinion. Read More

HOUR Prediction Rule - Letter to the Editor.

Acad Emerg Med 2019 Apr 19. Epub 2019 Apr 19.

Lehigh Valley Health Network, Department of Emergency and Hospital Medicine, Division of Medical Toxicology, Allentown, PA.

In a recent issue of Academic Emergency Medicine, we read with interest the article titled: Hospital Observation Upon Reversal (HOUR) with Naloxone: A Prospective Clinical Prediction Rule Validation Study by Clemency et al. In order to avoid over-reliance on this decision rule and possible untoward effects of early discharge, we feel that there are some key points worth considering in this regard. It is important to note that the average dose of prehospital naloxone was 3. Read More

Phillip D Levy

Acad Emerg Med 2019 Apr 4. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

Department of Emergency Medicine, Assistant Vice President for Translational Science and Clinical Research Innovation, Wayne State University.

As health care providers we all seek to do good for our patients, or at the very least, do no harm. This core principle is and always should be independent of where one is educated or trains, specialty, practice setting, payer mix, etc. However, interlaced with this is a self-protective mechanism that draws a line in the sand when it comes to action or inaction for certain aspects of patient care.

Feasibility of Emergency Department-initiated, Mobile Health Blood Pressure Intervention: An Exploratory, Randomized Clinical Trial.

Acad Emerg Med 2019 Jan 19. Epub 2019 Jan 19.

Acad Emerg Med 2019 Feb 16;26(2):129-139. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

Department of Emergency Medicine, University of California at San Francisco, San Francisco, CA.

Background: While improved access to safety net primary care providers, like federally qualified health centers (FQHCs), is often cited as a route to alleviate potentially preventable emergency department (ED) visits, no studies have longitudinally established the impact of improving access to FQHCs on ED use among Medicaid-insured and uninsured adults.

Methods: Using data from the Uniform Data System, U. Read More
