  • Head-Up CPR

    Head-Up CPR

    You may have heard of Head-Up CPR as a new approach to patient positioning during CPR. It may not be totally prime-time yet(although it is being used right now), but it is, thinking outside the box and concentrating on the most important part of what cardiac resuscitation is about…. saving the brain. If we go...

    Phlegmasia Cerulean Dolens

    CASE A 35 yo woman presents with a painful blue swollen leg, that occurred rapidly, the evening before. There is little relevant past history and the patient is on the oral contraceptive pill. Examination reveals a dusky, blue left leg, that is swollen in comparison to the other side. Pulses are present and the patient in neurologically...

  • Resuscitation:The Outer limits

    Resuscitation:The Outer limits

    Resuscitation is reaching new limits, with new techniques and technologies giving results that we never thought possible. In Lazarus-like fashion, patients that a few years ago, would have been pronounced deceased, are now leaving hospital to resume their lives, with their families and their work and with very little, if any, deficit. About 8 years ago I...

  • The ‘Lightbulb Sign’ doesn’t always mean a posterior dislocation

    A 35 yo woman presents to the emergency department with a complaint of shoulder dislocation. There is a previous history of multiple dislocations, including two posterior dislocations. There has been no trauma, or seizure or other major force, as might be expected to cause a posterior dislocation, although posterior dislocation can occur in the absence...

    The unstable patient with massive PV bleed

    The Case It was a quiet Sunday afternoon in a small ED (sounds like the start to a bad story, doesn’t it?) I picked up the next chart…30-year-old, 13/40, light PV bleeding History – otherwise healthy 30 year old, no medications, G2P1, 13/40, light bleeding since yesterday, some cramping low abdominal pain, USS at 10/40...

  • Will Paramedic-2 change my practice?

    Will Paramedic-2 change my practice?

    If you haven’t caught the newly published Paramedic-2  trial, here’s a brief rant that tells you everything you need to know. The ostensible reason for the publication has been the ongoing debate about the role of adrenaline in cardiac arrest. In fact the very first line of the paper reads “concerns about the use of...

  • The Patient with Diplopia

    The Patient with Diplopia

    A 58 yo male presents to the emergency department with an 8 hour history of diplopia. He has no past medical history, has no allergies and is on no medications. He denies any recent illness or trauma. Recently a great journal article was brought to my attention and I thought everyone should hear about it....

ECG of The Week

How long do we have, to pick up that an ECG is abnormal? Usually it’s about 20 seconds. I developed ‘The ECG in 20 Seconds Approach‘, a simple method, to help you read ECG’s.

Peter Kas's Message to You

Clinical Pearl

Head Thrust Test

In a patient with rotational vertigo and nystagmus, where we suspect, or wish to prove a peripheral lesion, this test is of assistance. It relies on the vestibulo-occular reflex, which is responsible for bringing the eyes back to the centre.

In unilateral nystagmus and rotational vertigo, the peripheral lesion is opposite to the direction of the fast nystagmus. When the head is turned towards the lesion, the eyes move with the head, for a brief moment and the vestibular-occular reflex then returns them to the centre. If this occurs it is a positive test indicating a peripheral cause.
