Introduction: Current recommendations for diagnostic imaging for moderately to severely ill patients with suspected coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) include chest radiograph (CXR). Our primary objective was to determine whether lung ultrasound (LUS) B-lines, when excluding patients with alternative etiologies for B-lines, are more sensitive for the associated diagnosis of COVID-19 than CXR.Methods: This was a retrospective cohort study of all patients who presented to a single, academic emerg...

BACKGROUND: There is limited research on loop drainage (LD) compared to incision and drainage (I&D) for treatment of cutaneous abscesses. We investigated whether LD was noninferior to I&D for abscess resolution and whether there was any difference in repeat ED visits or complication rates between these techniques. METHODS: We performed a prospective randomized controlled trial, using a convenience sample at an urban academic emergency department (ED). Subjects over 18 years who presented for fir...

Abstract Introduction Availability of anti-viral agents and need to isolate infected patients increases the need to confirm the diagnosis of influenza before determining patient disposition. Objectives We sought to determine if time-to-disposition (TTD) was shorter among patients tested for influenza using an Emergency Department (ED) Point-of-care (POC) test compared to core laboratory (lab) test and to determine difference in antibiotic use between groups. Methods We prospectively enrolled a c...

Abstract Objectives In response to crowding the use of hallway beds has become an increasingly prevalent practice in Emergency Departments (EDs). There is limited research on whether caring for patients in hallways (HP) is associated with adverse outcomes. The goal of this study was to examine the effects of HP triage on 30 day outcomes for ED return, readmission, and mortality. Methods We performed a retrospective cohort study at an urban, academic ED comparing HPs (defined as HP for ≥30 min) t...

Objectives: The objective was to examine emergency medicine (EM) residents' perceptions of gender as it intersects with resuscitation team dynamics and the experience of acquiring resuscitation leadership skills. Methods: This was an exploratory, qualitative study using grounded theory and a purposive sample of postgraduate year (PGY) 2-4 EM residents who function as resuscitation team leaders in two urban EM programs. One-on-one interviews were conducted by a single experienced researcher. Audi...

Abstract Background Emergency department observation units (EDOUs) are used frequently for low-risk chest pain evaluations. Objective The purpose of this study was to determine whether geriatric compared to non-geriatric patients evaluated in an EDOU for chest pain have differences in unscheduled 30-day re-presentation, length of stay (LOS), and use of stress testing. Methods We conducted an exploratory, retrospective, cohort study at a single academic, urban ED of all adult patients placed in a...

AbstractBackground: Mass casualty incident (MCI) triage and the use of triage tags to assign treatment priorities are not fully implemented despite emergency medical services (EMS) personnel training during drills and exercises. Objectives: To compare current field triage practices during both training and actual MCIs and identify any potential barriers to use. Methods: During training sessions from November 2015 through March 2016, an anonymous survey was distributed to personnel in 3 distinct ...

Literature exploring how and where experiential learning happens in the modern clinical learning environment is sparse. We created a novel, web-based educational tool called “Learning Moment” (LM) to foster experiential learning am...
