Department of Emergency Medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA.

Study Objective: To characterize the emergency medicine resident physician workforce and the residency programs training them.

Methods: We identified emergency medicine residents in the 2020 American Medical Association (AMA) Physician Masterfile, analyzed demographic information, mapped both county-level population-adjusted and hospital referral region densities, and compared 2020 versus 2008 resident physician densities. We also analyzed all Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited emergency medicine residency programs from 2013 to 2020, mapped state-level population-adjusted densities, and identified temporal trends in program location and state-level program densities.

Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine, Department of Emergency Medicine, Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, Camden, NJ; Department of Pediatric Emergency Medicine, St. Christopher's Hospital for Children, Philadelphia, PA.

Study Objective: During the delta surge of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021, we sought to identify characteristics and beliefs associated with COVID-19 vaccination acceptance in parents of pediatric emergency department (ED) patients.

Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional survey-based study of the parents of children aged 3 to 16 years presenting to 1 of 9 pediatric EDs from June to August 2021 to assess the parental acceptance of COVID-19 vaccines. Using multiple variable regression, we ascertained which factors were associated with parental and pediatric COVID-19 vaccination acceptance. Read More

Study Objective: Large doses of intramuscular (IM) naloxone are commonly used in out-of-hospital settings to reverse opioid toxicity; however, they are used less commonly in hospitals because of concerns about opioid withdrawal, particularly agitation. We aimed to determine the frequency of severe agitation following a single 1.6 mg IM naloxone dose. Read More

The Aerosol-Generating Effect Among Noninvasive Positive Pressure Ventilation, High-Flow Nasal Cannula, Nonrebreather Mask, Nasal Cannula, and Ventilator-Assisted Preoxygenation.

Ann Emerg Med 2022 Apr 22. Epub 2022 Apr 22.

Department of Energy and Refrigerating Air-conditioning Engineering, National Taipei University of Technology, Taipei, Taiwan.

Study Objective: To evaluate aerosol dispersion and exposure risk during oxygenation therapy among health care personnel.

Methods: This study compared the aerosol dispersion effect produced through continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), bilevel positive airway pressure (BiPAP), BiPAP with face coverings, a high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) with face coverings, nasal cannula oxygenation (NCO) at 15 L/min with face coverings, nonrebreather mask (NRM), and ventilator-assisted preoxygenation (VAPOX) during oxygenation therapy at a minute ventilation of 10 L/min and 20 L/min. The length and width of aerosol dispersion were recorded, and aerosol concentrations were then detected at a mannequin's head, trunk, and feet. Read More
