CECS often goes undiagnosed – have you missed it? Also, in this episode, Drs. Khoujah and Chang discuss which patients presenting with AF, VTE, and CHF will succeed in the EDOU, and which can potentially go home. We'd love to hear from you!

 CDEM - Episode 7 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:28:24

In this edition of Critical Decisions in Emergency Medicine, Dr. Danya Khoujah and Dr. Wendy Chang discuss the limping child and the elderly patient with adverse drug reactions. First, knowing that the young child’s bones are more flexible, how do you go about diagnosing the limping child? What is normal on a physical exam? Should you x-ray? What about the febrile vs. non-febrile patient? Also, learn about adverse drug events in the geriatric patient. The elderly body metabolizes drugs differently. The geriatric patient is also more likely to take more than one medication. Patients may be confused about what they are taking, may have difficulties reading small prescription labels, and may forget when they take their medications. Are you missing something with these patients? Find out in this episode of Critical Decisions in Emergency Medicine.
