Many types and etiologies of headache and facial pain afflict ED patients, and sorting through them can be a challenge. Craniofacial experts themselves, in fact, do not attempt to remember the subtle differences between the various conditions causing craniofacial pain, but instead refer to the third edition of the International Classification of Headache Disorders, says Larry Mellick, MD.

The initial ED management of blisters from burns is controversial, but James Roberts, MD, and Martha Roberts, ACNP, CEN, note that it likely does not matter exactly what is done. Read their blog post on hand burn management at http://bit.ly/ProceduralPause, and then watch this video as Ms. Roberts drains the blister of a large burn.

Read Dr. Butts’ article, “Comet Tails and Lung Sliding: Evaluating for Pneumothorax,” in the December 2013 issue, and then view this video that demonstrates a normal “sliding” motion of the pleura back and forth. Comet tail artifacts are also seen to appear and disappear, emanating from the pleural border. The combination of the presence of sliding and comet tail artifacts virtually excludes a pneumothorax.

Read Dr. Butts’ article, “Comet Tails and Lung Sliding: Evaluating for Pneumothorax,” in the December 2013 issue, and then view this video that demonstrates lack of lung sliding associated with a pneumothorax. A rib is seen to the right of the image as the structure casting a large shadow. Just beneath the rib, the pleura is seen as a hyperechoic horizontal line. Careful observation reveals that the pleura is not sliding nor are comet tails visible.

Cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome isn’t life- or limb-threatening, but it remains diagnostically elusive for many EPs. Dr. Larry Mellick says the next time you see a patient with severe cyclic nausea and vomiting that is relieved by hot showers, ask about marijuana use.

Dr. Mellick’s suspicions smoldered for years; he even thought the problem resided with his technique. But one patient made him realize that the textbooks were just wrong: Wire cutters were not going to release a zipper from penile skin.

Read Dr. Butts’ article, “Think SUPRAclavicular for Subclavian Lines,” in the July 2013 issue, and then view this video that shows the technique to assess the venous anatomy of the neck and to identify the subclavian vein (SCV). The high-frequency transducer should be placed in the transverse orientation just lateral to the trachea. Once the internal jugular (IJ) is identified, it can be followed inferiorly until it is seen to join the SCV. Angling the transducer anteriorly will help to visualize this junction.

Read Dr. Butts’ article, “Think SUPRAclavicular for Subclavian Lines,” in the July 2013 issue, and then view this video that shows assessment of the venous anatomy as seen under ultrasound. The internal jugular (IJ) vein is seen as the triangular vessel that appears to fluctuate slightly with respiration. As the view progresses inferiorly, the IJ can be seen to join the SCV, which appears tubular in this orientation.

Read Dr. Butts’ article, “Think SUPRAclavicular for Subclavian Lines,” in the July 2013 issue, and then view this video that shows an “in-plane” approach to a vessel (using a simulator). As the needle is inserted from the end of the transducer, rather than at its mid-point, it traverses the path of the transducer. This enables the entire needle, including the tip, to be visible throughout the procedure, minimizing complications such as arterial puncture or pneumothorax.

Chest tube placement borders on the barbaric, says Dr. Mellick. The use of large-bore chest drainage devices is not supported by most guidelines, and he explains in this month’s EduBlog that needle aspiration is just as effective, with a small-bore chest drain working if needle aspiration fails.

Patients don’t come to the ED for headache unless the severity and duration are intolerable or the headache is frighteningly different. Emergency physicians need as many therapeutic arrows in their quiver as possible to treat those headaches. The bilateral paraspinous cervical injection with small amounts of bupivacaine in the lower neck is an excellent option for managing tough headache cases.
