Editors' Remarks


Dear Colleague,

The Advanced Emergency Nursing Journal (AENJ) has a newly enhanced online presence! This creates new possibilities for connecting, networking, and discovering information about advanced practice emergency nursing.   In addition to Current Edition Highlights previously provided, we have added the following sections:

·       Guidelines and Scientific Statements

·       Upcoming Conferences

·       Quick Poll

You can even follow us on Twitter via a link on the page J.

We would like to take this opportunity to introduce Tom Trimble, our Online Editor.  Tom was an internet pioneer in emergency nursing having established "Emergency Nursing World !" [http://ENW.org] on July 4, 1996 and the very first emergency nursing discussion list (Em-Nsg-L: The Emergency Nursing List).  He is helping us establish and expand our cyber-presence and we are fortunate to have him on our team.

Now, we would like to hear from you. Do you have suggestions for things you would find useful online? Please let us know and send us any new resources or helpful links you would like added to this site.

Sue and Jean

Online Editor's Suggestions
Online Editor's Suggestions

 "The Trauma Professional's Blog" (RegionsTrauma Pro) is an interesting and useful blog on Tumblr and posts announcements on Twitter [#TraumaPro].

"The Two-Sheet Trauma Trick" is something that I should have put in "Clinical Tips" as I've used it for many years; don't forget to add socks (feet often stick out) and the warm blanket head and neck wrap.

Rapid Noninvasive Rewarming Using a Hubbard Tank provides tips for severe hypothermia.

Their article, New Technology: 3-% Printed Casts For Fractures shows some future potential.

If you are working in Military Medicine; Tactical Combat Casualty Care; your local SWAT team; Urban Search and Rescue; Trauma Care in austere environments or community disasters, or wish to better prepare and understand those possibilities, The Journal of Special Operations Medicine newsletter gives insight. Be sure to check the links and videos at https://www.jsomonline.org/TCCC.html.

             Sincerely,                  Tom Trimble, RN CEN

**     “The Sceptic’s Guide to Emergency Medicine”, a blog reviewing evidence in EM, reports the work of Dr. Manrique Umaña from Costa Rica regarding “hands-on defibrillation.” 

In short, tests indicate higher leakage currents (testing four types of gloves) to the CPR person than thought, and may be potentially dangerous. 

**    Need rapid securement of your central line? Consider wound glue or staples. (Check policies, product info, and with surgical colleagues to be sure it’s OK.)
