This episode in the Fracture Season of PEM Currents, the Pediatric Emergency Medicine podcast focuses on elbow fractures. Did you know that the elbow has there joints? Did you know that supracondylar fractures can happen after a fall from something other than monkey bars? Don’t forget to listen to the Forearm and Wrist Episode if you’d like to brush up on your neuromuscular assessment.
