On an incredibly busy shift last month, my colleague, Scott Campbell, came up with the best analogy for the stressors of working in an emergency department. “We're like the high-functioning child of an alcoholic: trying to please everyone, make everyone happy, keep the family from falling apart with a completely unreliable, broken system that we're supposed to be relying on,” he said.

For emergency medicine clinicians who learned to defer to patients' privacy on sexual orientation and gender identification, asking questions is a major culture change.
As HHS moves toward advancing healthcare equality, patients are generally comfortable with emergency department physicians and nurses asking about sexual orientation and gender identity (SO/GI).
If you're planning on setting off your own Fourth of July fireworks show, be sure you're taking the right safety precautions.
Looking at data from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's National Electronic Injury Surveillance System, there's a noticeable spike around Independence Day. In 2015, an estimated 8,000 people were treated for firework-related injuries between June 19 and July 19, of which 42 percent were younger than 20.
Emergency room visits could decrease under the Affordable Care Act despite the findings of a 2013 study linking Medicaid expansion to an increase in trips to the ER in Oregon, according to a new paper by Yale University health economist Amanda Kowalski.
Kowalski, associate professor of economics at Yale and faculty research fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research, concludes that the cost of expanding Medicaid — the federal program that provides healthcare for the poor and disabled — could be lower than what the Oregon findings have led experts and policymakers to assume.
Dr. Brian Boggs was on break from college where he was studying math and physics when he heard a head-on collision in front of his parent’s home in Kingsport, Tennessee, an event that would forever change his life and career path.
“I heard the crash and went out there and I was the first one on the scene. It was a family going to a birthday party for their grandmother. They were all wearing seatbelts and ended up ok,” he said.

Faced with a national opioid epidemic, researchers have found that wearable biosensors hold great promise for detecting episodes of drug use in real time with the potential for keeping opioid users on track with substance abuse treatment programs by triggering interventions in the event of a relapse.

A visit to the emergency room is, by definition, stressful.
But new technology is making communication between the patient and hospital staff easier and time spent in the emergency department a little less tense. Dr. Dave Feldman, medical director of the emergency department at Good Samaritan Hospital in San Jose, California, said his staff is always looking for ways to engage with emerging technologies, and that patients and their families can benefit from new communication tools before and during their visit.
