Abstract
2020 has seen the birth of several relevant studies in emergency medicine of which the following is a selection : 1) conservative treatment for primary spontaneous pneumothorax may be offered ; 2) tranexamic acid does not provide benefit in gastrointestinal bleeding ; 3) the Canadian Syncope Risk Score is validated for the risk stratification of syncopal patients ; 4) early administration of tranexamic acid does not have a significant effect on the neurological prognosis of patients with moderate to severe trauma brain injury ; 5) the notion of frailty seems to be predictive of mortality in the event of intra-hospital cardiac arrest in elderly patients ; 6) a pharmacological cardioversion strategy followed by electrical cardioversion is as effective as initial electrical cardioversion for atrial fibrillation in the emergency room.
