REBEL Core Cast – Basics of EM – Mega Summary – Part 1

Take Home Points

  • Emergency medicine revolves around the differential diagnosis
  • History and physical exam should significantly narrow your differential diagnosis
  • Have an idea of what specific diagnoses are being ruled out when ordering diagnostic tests
  • Always consider the most life-threatening and most common disease processes first – we are a rule out specialty
  • “Red flags” are key historical or physical exam findings that put one at a higher risk for certain conditions
  • You have a finite number of shifts as a learner.  Challenge yourself to learn something new every day!
