Geriatric Burn Injuries Presenting to the Emergency Department of a Major Burn Center: Clinical Characteristics and Outcomes
Burn injuries in geriatric patients are common and may have significant associated morbidity and mortality. Most research has focused on the care of hospitalized patients after admission to burn units. Little is known about the clinical characteristics of geriatric burn victims who present to the emergency department (ED) and their ED assessment and management.

Hyperoxemia is associated with poor neurological outcomes in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest rescued by extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation: Insight from the nationwide multicenter observational JAAM-OHCA (Japan Association for Acute Medicine) registry
Previous studies have shown an association between hyperoxemia and mortality in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients after cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR); however, evidence is lacking in extracorporeal CPR (ECPR) setting. (Source: The Journal of Emergency Medicine)

Pain and Acute Vision Loss Secondary to Microbial Keratitis: A Contact Lens-Related Complication
Approximately 45 million individuals in the United States (US) wear contact lenses to correct refractive error, maintain ocular health, or for cosmetic reasons (1). There has been an increasing trend in the number of contact lens users and microbial corneal infections (keratitis). Contact lens wear represents 30% to 50% of all microbial keratitis cases, costing the US health care system $ 175 million annually (2,3). Corneal infections are an ophthalmic emergency as they can either cause ulceration and perforation of the cornea and/or disseminate to the intraocular tissues, leading to irreversible blindness.

The Use of a Suprascapular Nerve Block to Facilitate the Reduction of an Anterior Shoulder Dislocation: An Alternative for Elderly Patients?
: Anterior shoulder dislocation is a common presentation to the emergency department (ED). The dislocations are spontaneous or traumatic. Generally, a reduction is performed under procedural sedation and analgesia (PSA). Other approaches include the use of intraarticular lidocaine, or in rare instances, nerve blocks. Here we discuss the case of a 66-year-old female patient who presented with left shoulder pain and limited range of motion after a fall. After discussing potential treatment options to reduce the dislocation, the patient agreed to a nerve block. (Source: The Journal of Emergency Medicine)

Intravenous thrombolysis improves the prognosis of patients with acute ischemic stroke and chronic kidney disease
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with a higher mortality rate and a poor prognosis among patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) who receive intravenous thrombolysis (IVT); however, it is still unclear whether IVT improves the prognosis of AIS patients with CKD.
