The early pregnancy assessment project: the effect of cooperative care in the emergency department for management of early pregnancy complications.

Aust N Z J Obstet Gynaecol 2009 Feb;49(1):110-4

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, The Canberra Hospital, Woden, Australian Capital Territory, Australia.

Background: Early pregnancy assessment clinics (EPAC) have been introduced and accepted as the gold standard for management of early pregnancy problems (EPP). However, EPAC are not universally available and management of EPP within the emergency department (ED) can result in prolonged waiting times, inappropriate use of resources and no clear treatment or follow-up plan being implemented.

Aim: To assess the effect of an early pregnancy assessment protocol (EPAP) in the ED, designed to create a cultural change among doctors in relation to EPP in order to minimise use of resources, improve treatment times for patients and establish a clear management plan where dedicated EPAC services are not available.

Transvaginal ultrasonography by emergency physicians decreases patient time in the emergency department.

Acad Emerg Med 1998 Aug;5(8):802-7

Emergency Medicine Department, Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, VA 23708, USA.

Objectives: An important argument for emergency physician use of ultrasonography is that it results in more rapid patient disposition, but there are few articles to support this position. This study sought to demonstrate a significant decrease in the time spent in the ED when emergency physicians performed transvaginal ultrasonography (TVUS), as compared with when TVUS was performed by consultants, in the evaluation of first-trimester pelvic pain or vaginal bleeding.

Methods: A retrospective analysis was conducted of the time spent in the ED (time placed in gynecologic examination room to time released from ED) by patients with first-trimester pelvic pain or vaginal bleeding necessitating further evaluation with TVUS. Read More
