EM Basic

Today's episode of EM Basic will review vaginal bleeding in patients who are not pregnant.  This is a much different workup from pregnant patients with vaginal bleeding so we have to know how to effectively manage this chief complaint.

This episode was written and recorded by Dr. Adaira Landry, an EM senior resident at NYU/Bellevue and Joe Kennedy, a 4th year medical student at Mayo who matched into EM just after this episode was recorded.  They'll review what vital signs to look out for, the important parts of this history and physical, what labs and imaging to order (if any), and the proper disposition of patients with this chief complaint.
