Emergency Medical Services
The EMS "virtual issue" features key articles from Academic Emergency Medicine, covering topics such as disaster, trauma, out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, refusal-of-care, and many others.
Statistics and Research Methodology
These articles were compiled based on recommendations from Academic Emergency Medicine and Annals of Emergency Medicine statistical/methods reviewers, recognition as “landmark” statistical publications and frequently cited methodology articles. Papers from emergency medicine journals (Academic Emergency Medicine, Annals of Emergency Medicine and Prehospital Emergency Care) are featured. However, additional references are provided for each topic from non-emergency medicine journals (many of which are written by emergency physicians) as potentially helpful references.
The injury prevention “virtual issue” is a collection of key articles from Academic Emergency Medicine which focuses on the different types of injury that the emergency physician might encounter, including both intentional (domestic violence, assault, suicide, weapons) and unintentional (drugs/alcohol, poisoning, sports). The epidemiology of injury is also covered.
The toxicology “virtual issue” is a collection of key articles from Academic Emergency Medicine on the effects of toxins on the human body, recognizing and treating these effects, and developing the basic science of toxicology. The issue covers abused substances as well as other toxins perhaps less commonly seen by the emergency physician.

This collection of papers focuses on the situations and conditions that the emergency physician may need to employ ultrasound in, as well as covering education and training. .
The geriatrics “virtual issue” is a collection of key articles from Academic Emergency Medicine on the emergency management of the older patient.
