Patient self-perception, and presentations of headache: June 2024 Primary Survey

How well do patients in the emergency department judge the severity of their situation? Some may fear the worst for any hospital visit, and others not realise that their lives are in danger.

Then there's a trio of publications on the challenges of pain in various forms. Starting with a study on the links between red flags in headache assessment, and serious secondary headaches. Next there is a letter, questioning how well pain management is done in the ED. To finish, a new scale has been developed to assess ultrasound-guided fascia iliaca block.
