Emergency Research

By its nature, emergency department (ED) research encompasses a diverse research agenda echoing the wide variety of clinical presentations that are treated in there. Some of the research at the CHEO ED includes whether or not a child requires a head CT following minor head injury; outcomes of treating infants with bronchiolitis with epinephrine and steroids; improved efficiencies of nurse-initiation of steroids for asthma; and how to better manage common pediatric presentations in the ED (pharyngitis, asthma, croup, migraine, behavioural problems, wounds, minor extremity injuries, and prehospital care) and how to better translate this knowledge.

Check out the world's first comprehensive pediatric concussion guidelines - a nationwide research project led by Dr. Roger Zemek at CHEO.
