Abstract
Several articles have been published during 2016 suggesting amendments in certain established practices of emergency medicine. Amongst such practices now in question are : 1) the use in mechanical cardiopulmonary resuscitation of amiodarone and lidocaine which appear not to improve survival or neurological outcome ; 2) apneic oxygenation being associated with a significant increase in first pass success intubation ; 3) an updating of the definition of sepsis and septic shock which facilitate earlier identification of susceptible patients ; 4) the use of the high sensitivity troponin 0-hour / 1-hour algorithm which differentiates earlier patients with or without acute myocardial infarction ; 5) that intramuscular non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs offer effective sustained analgesia for renal colic, and finally 6) that irrigation of an abscess cavity after incision and drainage is not beneficial.
