ACEP recently added two new point-of-care (POC) tools to its growing library. BUPE is a quick and easy tool to assess patients for opioid withdrawal and the use of buprenorphine. It provides indications, side effects, and expected responses to buprenorphine. Eric Ketcham, MD, FACEP, presented the new buprenorphine tool at the Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit in Atlanta this April.
The AFIB tool helps determine the best way to control rapid atrial fibrillation and assists with identifying patients who can be converted to sinus rhythm in the emergency department. Find both of these resources in our library of bedside tools.
