1101. Profiles in patient safety: confirmation bias in emergency medicine. (PubMed)

Profiles in patient safety: confirmation bias in emergency medicine. Confirmation bias is a pitfall in emergency care and may lead to inaccurate diagnoses and inappropriate treatments and care plans. Because of the increasing severity and volume of emergency care, emergency physicians often must rely on heuristics, such as rule-out protocols, as a guide to diagnosing and treating patients. The use of heuristics or protocols can be potentially misleading if the initial diagnostic impression (...) is incorrect. To minimize cognitive dissonance, clinicians may accentuate confirmatory data and ignore nonconfirmatory data. Clinicians should recognize confirmation bias as a potential pitfall in medical decision making in the emergency department. Reliance on the scientific method, Bayesian reasoning, metacognition, and cognitive forcing strategies may serve to improve diagnostic accuracy and improve patient care.

1102. Mentoring medical students in academic emergency medicine. (PubMed)

Mentoring medical students in academic emergency medicine. Mentoring is an important aspect of career development for medical students, residents, and junior faculty. It is vital to the professional growth and maturation of individuals early in each phase of their careers. Additionally, mentoring has a critical role throughout all career stages, because the mentor-mentee relationship provides mutual benefit to both participants. This article will describe the role of the mentor, suggest ways (...) to increase the likelihood of successful mentoring, and identify pitfalls in the mentoring process predominantly related to medical students. In contrast to role models, mentors play an active part in the development of a young physician's career. This difference will be discussed. Finally, this article will describe the responsibilities of career guidance and recommendation letter authorship that mentors assume for medical students.

1105. Pretest probability estimates: a pitfall to the clinical utility of evidence-based medicine? (PubMed)

Pretest probability estimates: a pitfall to the clinical utility of evidence-based medicine? The Bayesian application of likelihood ratios has become incorporated into evidence-based medicine (EBM). This approach uses clinicians' pretest estimates of disease along with the results of diagnostic tests to generate individualized posttest disease probabilities for a given patient. To date, there is minimum scientific validation for the clinical application of this approach. This study is designed (...) to evaluate variability in the initial step of this process, clinicians' estimates of pretest probability of disease, to assess whether this approach can be expected to yield consistent posttest disease estimates.This cross-sectional cohort study was conducted at an urban county teaching hospital by using a sample of emergency and internal medicine residents and faculty, as well as emergency department (ED) midlevel practitioners. Participants read clinical vignettes designed to raise consideration

1106. Osmotic myelinolysis syndrome after treatment of severe deamino arginine vasopressin-associated hyponatraemia: pitfalls in emergency medicine. (PubMed)

Osmotic myelinolysis syndrome after treatment of severe deamino arginine vasopressin-associated hyponatraemia: pitfalls in emergency medicine. Hyponatraemia is among the more common electrolyte abnormalities encountered in the ED. Both the primary disturbance and its correction can result in life-threatening neurological sequelae. Osmotic myelinolysis syndrome is one such complication and is associated with the rapid correction of hyponatraemia. The present case report describes the mechanism (...) of severe hyponatraemia in a patient taking deamino arginine vasopressin, and the subsequent development of both central pontine and extrapontine myelinolysis after rapid correction of sodium levels. Implications for the emergency management of such patients are discussed.
