Call for Papers: Revolutionizing Emergency Care with AI: Opportunities and Challenges

New Content ItemThe International Journal of Emergency Medicine is seeking papers on the use of AI and digital health to transform emergency medicine. AI algorithms and chatbots could help with patient triage, decision support, and monitoring. AI-powered communication tools can assist patients in navigating emergency care and post-discharge processes. However, there are also risks, including the introduction of bias, problems with replicability, and the need for explainability. Open to submissions until 15 February 2024.

Call for Papers: Gamification in Emergency Medicine Education

New Content ItemWe warmly welcome submissions to our Guest Edited Collection, Gamification in Emergency Medicine Education, Guest Edited by Shayne Gue. Educational gamification is a growing field within both undergraduate and graduate medical education settings to motivate learners and provide an interactive, experiential, and social learning environment. Through this collection, we seek to share experiences from around the world to develop best practices in educational gamification within emergency medicine. Open to submissions until 1 November 2023. 


The current  COVID-19 pandemic has exposed existing weaknesses in public health infrastructure globally as well as the lack of preparedness and suboptimal response for such pandemic disasters, including for psychological aspects.  Both the economic hardship and the continuous media coverage of alarming news have exacerbated this effect which also includes increased domestic violence.
M.  Sheek-Hussein et al. discuss how addressing psychological effects may improve the disaster management of infectious pandemics.


This systematic review by Neha Potla & Latha Ganti  compares the efficacy of tenecteplase vs. alteplase with regard to three outcomes: rate of symptomatic hemorrhage, functional outcome at 90 days, and reperfusion grade after thrombectomy to compare the efficacy of both thrombolytics in AIS.  The available evidence suggests that tenecteplase appears to be a better thrombolytic agent for acute ischemic stroke when compared to alteplase.
