June 2016 EM Articles

There were so many important articles this month.  You would need to read 2982 articles to find these 41 gems.  Can "naive schoolchildren" operate a defibrillator?  Yes, you read that correctly...someone actually studied this...obviously someone who doesn't like children very much.  Could we be nearing the answer to whether to LP after CT for SAH?  Should a parapneumonic effusion alter our decision making in patients with pneumonia?  Why did the FELLOW investigators have such low first-pass success with VL compared to DL?  Since the Aussie ban on semiautomatic weapons in 1996, there have been no mass shootings.  What do you think should happen in the US?  Check out a fantastic review article in JAMA Peds on neonatal/infant fever.  Can we clear c-spine collars in intoxicated patients with negative CT?  Does a pan-scan vs. selective CT improve trauma patient outcomes?  WJEM found a shockingly high rate of posting inappropriate content on social media among faculty, residents, and nurses.  Who was the worst offender?  Find out more!  There is so much here for you this month...this is just a taste!
