OBJECTIVE In 1996 Sgarbossa reviewed 17 ventricular-paced electrocardiograms (ECGs) in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) for signs of ischemia. Several characteristics of the paced ECG were predictive of AMI. We sought to evaluate the criteria in ventricular-paced ECGs in an emergency department (ED) cohort. METHODS Ventricular-paced ECGs in patients with(More)
Since antigen-persistence plays a role for induction of immunity, we investigated the in vivo pharmacokinetic of a naked DNA vaccine at the site of its action, i.e., in the lymph node. After direct intralymphatic injection, naked DNA vaccine degraded within a few hours. In correlation with the short persistence of the DNA vaccine we found that the frequency(More)
INTRODUCTION Several prior studies have examined the impact of learners (medical students or residents) on overall emergency department (ED) flow as well as the impact of resident training level on the number of patients seen by residents per hour. No study to date has specifically examined the impact of learners on emergency medicine (EM) attending(More)
BACKGROUND There is growing pressure to measure and reduce unnecessary imaging in the emergency department. OBJECTIVE We study provider and hospital variation in utilization and diagnostic yield for advanced radiography in diagnosis of pulmonary embolism (PE) and to assess patient- and provider-level factors associated with diagnostic yield. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND The ability to accurately assess the level of immunosuppression in HIV+ patients in the emergency department (ED) is often limited and can affect management of these patients. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the relationship between the absolute lymphocyte count (ALC) and CD4 count in HIV patients admitted through the ED with pneumonia and how(More)
