I'm not exactly the target audience (ED) but if I am doing a procedure I allow the family to stay if (1) they are reasonable, (2) they are SEATED and stay seated, and (3) if a trainee is involved, they are experienced and are okay with that plan.

One great from yesterday's resident didactics is that the recommendations for use of in have been liberalized. The most recent update emphasizes that doxy can be given for short durations (</= 21 days) regardless of age. 1/2

Obviously in that scenario would need to address reason for non-adherence to medication and address that if possible (e.g., consider switching to DOAC if cannot go to INR checks, etc.). If adherent, low Wells -> D-dimer.

Depends. If INR low 2/2 non-adherence to anticoagulation, would re-bridge to warfarin or use DOAC. A new PE on CT if outpatient treatment candidate would not change management since not failure of anticoagulation, is failure to take anticoagulation.

My recommended approach to residents: difficult airway? Do whatever your own best first pass modality is for the situation. Easy airway? Do something you’re less comfortable with. That way you can balance learning and experience while minimizing harms.

If you are a med student considering where you next wish to train, I'd suggest a tough, inner-city, low-income hospital. You will see much more, and do much more, than if you choose some swank, country-club like place.

ACGME regulations would be applicable to residents and fellows, but all residency-affiliated sites would be covered, so hopefully having the facilities available is a step in the right direction for everyone!

The ACGME common program requirements now include a requirement for “clean and private facilities for lactation that have refrigeration capabilities, with proximity appropriate for safe patient care” and citations can start 7/2019 for violations. Not sure about EM-specific!
