Adolescents frequently present to the emergency department or to primary
care physicians for acute health concerns that range from minor to life-threatening.
This issue of AM:STARs focuses on many of the more urgent and
emergent health problems and concerns that bring adolescents to clinics, private
offices, and emergency department settings.
Topics include:
  • Female adolescent gynecology emergencies
  • Male adolescent genitourinary emergencies
  • Sports-related head injuries and concussions
  • Approach to the adolescent with chest pain
  • Mental health/psychiatric emergencies
  • Substance use and abuse/overdose
  • Approach to the adolescent with syncope
  • Emergency care of youth with social and environmental vulnerabilities
