Does anyone have any references to this being a suggested or required procedure for Emergency medicine?

Jess Mason -

It's a really rare procedure that only falls into the realm of emergency medicine when a neurosurgeon is not available to perform it in the timeline that is needed. In that very rare event it has classically been taught as an emergency medicine procedure. It is in Clinical Procedures in Emergency Medicine (Roberts and Hedges) and other EM texts.
