ENW suggests that you direct the browser of your new Christmas computer to the web page of Randy Trinkle, BScPharm, BA, of the Pharmacy Department at Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Those who are active in EMED-L, PED-EM-L, etc., will recognize him as a knowledgeable and noted contributor. The links from his page are a worthwhile starting point. And, he points out the value of going outside one's own specialty or occupation to find useful data.

ENW thanks Dr. Alan Clark of Emergency Minded for his nomination of:

Ed's Pathology Notes
http://worldmall.com/erf/lectures.htm

This comprehensive pathology site with personality and opinion is the creation of Dr. Ed Friedlander at the University of Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine, Kansas City, MO. It is accessible and good for those quick brush-ups on many disease states and injuries, even for pleasurable browsing to put back some of the science in what we do. You can read up on the obscure or bizzare, the Kennedy Assasination, clarify concepts on manners of death as to whether natural vs. accidental, suicidal, homicidal, or therapeutic misadventure. Review a portion or system at a time and enjoy.

Week of April 13, 1997

ENW selects an unusual resource for this week's COOL Web-Find: The Department of Anaesthesia of The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Ontario, Canada makes its "Green Book" for Anaesthesia Residents available on the web. Of particular value to emergency nurses is the reference of

sign_obsolete.gif (975 bytes)flag-Canada-vsmall.gifAnaesthetic Implications of Children's Syndromes [from Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children]HSC-Icon.gifsign_obsolete.gif (975 bytes)
http://anaes.sickkids.on.ca/AnaesWeb/Green_Book/syndromes

This allows you to quickly look up online many developmental problems or other syndromes (often eponymous) that a child may have for a thumbnail description and outline of anaesthetic/resuscitative considerations. Since most are seen infrequently in an ED, such data may not be in the forefront of our memory. "Syndromes" (their title; ---the above is for bookmark clarity) is a very useful reference to the ED's computer bookmark list.

April 6, 1997

ENW presents an especially well-merited COOL Web-Find to Cynthia Bissell, RN, whose web-creation, as both a nurse and mother of children with special needs, has provided a comprehensive web-resource for home care of tracheostomies and an insight into lives affected by artificial airways and other special needs.

Wheeless' Textbook of Orthopedics
http://www.medmedia.com/Welcome.html

is a hyper-text comprehensive textbook with many useful files and references. Cruise through it ahead of time so that you can use its structure quickly when you must. (The quickest is to click the bone on the skeleton image-map or to use the list of fractures.)

February 23, 1997

This week, ENW recognizes the inter-relationship of mind and body. "Mens sana in corpore sano." Many patients who present for emergency care have some element of emotional distress or even frank psychiatric disease. The hospital emergency department, whether seen as sanctuary by the troubled or the community's buffer zone for its ills by the authorities, often must interact with those whose problem is "supra-tentorial." The following resources are too comprehensive to describe here and can find whatever information you need.

When sudden injury or illness strikes at vision, often the ED is the most appropriate resource, and usually the only one "after-hours." Whether conjunctivitis, foreign-body sensation, or emergencies such as chemical burns, acute glaucoma, or central retinal artery thrombosis, care that is really beneficial, and a chance to help the patient learn important information occurs when we deal with eye problems.

American Academy of Ophthalmology 
http://www.eyenet.org/

This specialist organization has a well-organized variety of fascinating information for both the public and for professionals.

Eyeville
http://www.eyeville.com/

Billed as "The Gathering Place for Visionaries in Eye Care - The Web's Most Comprehensive Site for Ophthalmology Content & Links", this mock town is a comprehensive site including those all-important downloadable patient brochures, resources, a number of optho-photo sources, CME, meetings announcements, etc.

Eye Workshop
http://www.healthpartners.com/sprmc/em/educatn/ophth.htm

This is an excellent teaching quiz with photos and diagrams and a good general introduction to eye problems seen in an ED. It comes to you from the folks at St. Paul-Ramsey Medical Center. Don't pass it up!

Internet Ophthalmology [from SUNY Buffalo]
http://wings.buffalo.edu/medicine/oph/

From the Dept. of Opthalmology at SUNY-Buffalo comes a complete course on Cytomegalovirus Retinitis, a LISTSERV mailing list, reviews of current articles, a "web-book" on strabismus and other pedi-optho problems.

Week of February 9, 1997

Among the most common and frequent reasons for which patients come to an emergency department are afflictions of the skin. The skin is the largest of bodily organs and is complex and essential in its functioning. Whether rash, drug or allergic reaction, "bug-bite," exanthem, cutaneous manifestation of internal disease, infestation, or "whaddya think this is?", we often need useful resources in Dermatology.

Electronic Textbook of Dermatology
http://telemedicine.org/stamfor1.htm

Some portions of this are still in outline form, but the scope is broad and the arrangement good, many photographs sampled during review were external links. As this site grows to fulfill its outline, it should become even more useful.

The COOL Web-Find! is awarded to The Virtual Hospital™  [http://vh.radiology.uiowa.edu/]   Presented by the Electric Differential Multimedia Laboratory, Department of Radiology, University of Iowa College of Medicine, Iowa City, Iowa. This well-known and critically acclaimed tour de'force of health and medical web publishing is a fine example of the capacity of the web to teach and inform whether to professionals or to the public. Its materials comprise much of the spectrum of medicine. The family practice handbook alone is worth a web-trip and is but one example of many.

For presentation of its first award, ENW has chosen to make a dual award to the same institution: Vanderbilt University's excellent nine-part Emergency Airway Management Guide from its Department of Anesthesiology faculty. It is comprehensive, well-organized, thorough, referenced, and has excellent views of direct laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation. It deals with the difficult and complex as well as the common.

The Department of Emergency Medicine at Vanderbilt has excellent teaching files of medical photos, x-rays, ekg's, and mnemonics. This is a clear and exceptional offering.

Other schools, departments, and divisions at VUMC have commendable pages which run above average. Other resources may be found, curriculum objectives, and interesting monographs. The entire web presence of VUMC is attractively and cohesively organized. The product of much work and thought is evident.

Visit these web offerings, absorb the knowledge, "tour" the rest of Vanderbilt University's Medical Center, and send of a note of thanks to the Webmaster to share with the authors in the Department of Anesthesiology and the Department of Emergency Medicine.
