    Prehosptial Stroke Triage Research Corner

    Prehosptial Stroke Triage Research Corner

    Over the past 5 years, there has been a dramatic expansion of the treatment strategies used to treat patients with acute ischemic stoke. As some of these treatments involve specific resources only available at certain institutions, appropriate triage of patients in the prehospital environment is becoming ever important. On one hand a patient who would best benefit from endovascular treatment triaged to a center without that capability will undoubtedly suffer a delay in care. On the other hand, over-triaging stroke patients to a comprehensive stroke center could overwhelm the resources of that center, potentially impacting the care of patients at that center. In the podcast below, we talk with Dr. Jason McMullan of the UC EM Division of EMS and Dr. James Li, PGY-3 who both have recent publications focusing on this phase of patient care.

    Controversies in Kidney Stones

    Controversies in Kidney Stones

    Flank pain and pain due to ureterolithiasis are common ED presentations. There exist, however, a number of controversies when you dive into the literature addressing the diagnosis and treatment of nephrology/ureterolithiasis. Is IV lidocaine effective at treating pain in these patients? Is there a way to avoid CT scans? What about tamsulosin? Is it only good for big stones/small stones? Is there a benefit at all. For our most recent Journal Club, we tackled several of these controversies.
