Point of Care Tool to help guide management in the ED.
Those that work in the emergency department are not always aware of the existing NHLBI and ASH guidelines to manage acute complications of sickle cell disease. People living with sickle cell disease report ongoing variability of care when they present to the emergency department. This point of care tool was designed to distill evidence-based recommendations into a format that allows for easy access that can guide care real time. This tool is freely available on the web, free for download as an app for members of the American College of Emergency Physicians. Click here to view the tool.
