Forearm and Wrist Fractures

This summer, in honor of the 7th anniversary of PEMBlog and PEM Currents I will be releasing a mini-season of fracture focused podcasts.

This episode focuses on radius and ulna fractures, including buckle, greenstick, physis and more! learn about the neurovascular assessment of the upper extremity and general management pearls for some of the most common injuries that you will see in the Pediatric Emergency Department.

I am now proud to offer CME through Cincinnati Children’s. To claim CME & ABP MOC Part 2, visit Cincinnati Children’s Online Courses and search ‘PEM Currents’.
