EM Basic is back with a brand new episode. Today’s episode was done by Dylan Norton and David Murphy, both 4th year medical students at the University of Colorado Medical School. We see epistaxis a lot in the ED and while most of it is mild and self limiting, there are frequently cases that take a lot of skill to manage. They’ll talk about the basics of the history and physical with epistaxis, how to order the necessary lab tests, how to manage any case of epistaxis in a step-wise manner, and some newer areas of research.
