CXR - perforated viscus

This image shows the cardinal sign of a perforated abdominal viscus. There is air under the diaphragm indicating air within the peritoneal cavity which can occur from a perforated abdominal viscus, following a laparoscopic abdominal procedure (where air is pumped into the peritoneal cavity to improve the views) and after more obscure events such as vigorous waterskiing in a female. When this appearance is seen it should be treated as a surgical emergency until proved otherwise.

Six Life-Threatening Obstetrical Emergencies

Topics Today I’ll review the obstetrical symptoms of vaginal bleeding, decreased fetal movement, contractions, fluid loss, headache, and that ominous catch-all, “I just don’t feel very well. What these all have in common, is that they are common, usually innocent, and occasionally life-threatening. The other thing they all have in common is that they are a [...]

Femoral Nerve Block – A Guide for Medial Students and Junior Doctors.

I completed this article in collaboration with a senor registrar whilst studying as an undergraduate medical student in Dundee. This article outlines the proposed introduction of a technique that employs ultrasound to visualise the femoral nerve whilst performing a femoral nerve block. This procedure is performed on patients in both the emergency dept and surgical theatres. Traditionally this procedure has been performed using a 'blind technique' which has an increased association with side effects including inadvertent damage to local structures and systemic toxicity related to local anaesthetic. In the article we give a brief outline of both the the traditional and ultrasound guided techniques and allow readers to understand the benefits of using the proposed technique. We believe that this article will be of great interest to senior medical student and junior doctors who are interested in careers in emergency medicine and anaesthesia. This
