This month in the mailbag new ACEP stroke guidelines, neurosurgeons, and "shops"
I don't use the term "shop" but this was never a purposeful choice and I don't think it's a particularly offensive term. However, the there is a pervasive depreciation of the ED throughout medicine. For example, the exclusion of emergency physicians in the recent Consensus for Sepsis and Septic Shock despite the fact that 80% of septic patients are admitted through the ED. Not to mention, that the most valuable interventions in sepsis occur early on... often in the ED. When it comes to ED burnout, I often wonder if part of EM fatigue is related to the way allied physician specialties take EM for granted. Musings aside, lovely wrap up as always!
