One Comment on EMRAP and AIR ITE Prep and EMA (Jan 2021)

  • 1.
    a) I did not realize that cranial burr hole counted as an ED procedure and now that I listened to that segment and have watched the video I am at least aware of how it is done. Don’t know if I could do it, but am aware
    b) I was not aware of the use of noninvasive ventilation as something to reach for in hypoxic respiratory failure iso pneumonia. Makes sense that by adding PEEP you can improve oxygenation. Mental status is obviously key in whether or not to reach for this.
    c) I was aware of the Canadian syncope risk score, but not that a validation study has been done. Now that it has been validated I plan to incorporate it into my practice. Was not aware of the FAINT score, but will keep an eye on it as further validation occurs.

    2) Having done both normal I&D with packing as well as Loop drainage I prefer doing Loop drainage and the study and segment here validates that preference. From now on, for abscesses that I would otherwise have packed I will opt to do loop drainage.

    3) I enjoyed the piece on the large bore dialysis catheters, but I have never had any training with these, nor do I believe have our ED nurses. With this being the case I would not feel comfortable accessing one to give meds or take blood in the department. I guess if the patient was really acutely dying with no other access maybe I would have no choice.
