Emergency Medicine

Emergency medicine pharmacists are an integral part of the health care team in the emergency department. Emergency medicine pharmacists recommend and monitor appropriate emergency medication therapy, recognize and evaluate disease state specific pharmacotherapy in all ages, and implement patient specific medication changes. These individuals are intimately involved in anticoagulation management, sedation, and empiric antibiotic decision making. These pharmacists also perform bedside oversight of the medication use process during resuscitations and trauma responses.
