5 Medical Myths in EM

SGEM XTRA - By admin - Feb 20, 2021
This is an SGEM Xtra episode. I had the honour of presenting at the Lehigh Valley Health Network Grand Rounds on February 4th, 2021. The title of the talk “Dogmalysis: Five Medical Myths in Emergency Medicine”. The presentation is available to listen to on iTunes and GooglePlay and all the slides can be downloaded using this LINK.

FIVE MEDICAL MYTHS IN EMERGENCY MEDICINE
  • Myth #1: The use of non-selective NSAIDs will cause a nonunion in long bone fractures
  • Myth #2: Topical anesthetics will cause blindness if used in simple corneal abrasions for less than 48 hours
  • Myth #3: Mild paediatric gastroenteritis is best treated with expensive oral electrolyte solutions
  • Myth #4: Tranexamic acid (TXA) has been proven to saves lives and results in good neurologic function in patients with isolated traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Myth #5: Epinephrine in adult out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA) results in better patient-oriented outcomes (POOs)”
