This space is a case-based study guide designed toward understanding the Emergency Medicine diagnostic and management principles of key orthopedic injuries and lesions seen in the Emergency Department.
The site can be navigated 2 ways:
1) Use the "Click Here To Search by Diagnosis" link if you know what topic you want to learn about. This is great for use during a busy shift to quickly learn about diagnosis and case management.
2) Use the body region tabs in the left margin to run through cases as a "quizzer" or study guide.
Each case starts with an image and a stimulus question. You can then link to the answer and subsequently to background, history & physical exam, diagnosis, ED management, a clinical pearl, references and additional images by using the purple task bar above the case. Each takes only a few minutes
