Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Emergency Medicine Volume 30, Issue 03: High-Risk Cases.

The goal of this program is to improve the delivery of care to high-risk patients in the emergency department (ED). After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Ensure that results of laboratory tests are promptly reported to the appropriate physician and report documented and followed up with patient.
2. Distinguish unstable angina from other causes of chest pain.
3. Adhere to the legal regulations that govern the transfer and discharge of patients from the ED.
4. Distinguish between serious and benign causes of back pain.
5. Evaluate the appropriateness of spinal immobilization for patients with penetrating trauma.

The original programs were presented by Robert A. Wiebe, MD, Clinical Professor, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, and Lalit Bajaj, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Research Director, Section of Emergency Medicine, Children’s Hospital, Denver.
