    Department of Emergency Medicine, Stony Brook University Hospital, Stony Brook, NY 11794, USA
    Pediatr Emerg Care 29:17-20. 2013
    ..We hypothesized that the WBS would correlate with a psychometrically different pain severity scale (the visual analog scale [VAS]) and not correlate with a fear measure, the Child Medical Fear Scale (CMFS)...
  2. doi request reprint Pretreatment of patients requiring oral contrast abdominal computed tomography with antiemetics: a randomized controlled trial of efficacy
    Gregory Garra
    Department of Emergency Medicine, Stony Brook University Medical Center, Stony Brook, NY 11784 8350, USA
    Ann Emerg Med 53:528-33. 2009
    ..Ingestion of diatrizoate meglumine before abdominal computed tomography (CT) is time consuming. We hypothesized that pretreatment with metoclopramide or ondansetron would result in faster ingestion of diatrizoate meglumine than placebo...
  3. ncbi request reprint Heat or cold packs for neck and back strain: a randomized controlled trial of efficacy
    Gregory Garra
    Department of Emergency Medicine, Stony Brook University Medical Center, Stony Brook, NY, USA
    Acad Emerg Med 17:484-9. 2010
    ..The objective of this study was to compare the analgesic efficacy of heat and cold in relieving pain from back and neck strains. The authors hypothesized that pain relief would not differ between hot and cold packs...
  4. doi request reprint Synchronous collection of multisource feedback evaluations does not increase inter-rater reliability
    Gregory Garra
    Emergency Medicine, Stony Brook University Medical Center, Stony Brook, NY, USA
    Acad Emerg Med 18:S65-70. 2011
    ..We sought to determine if within- and between-rater group reliability is increased when evaluations are gathered synchronously and relate to a specific patient interaction...
  5. doi request reprint Validation of the Wong-Baker FACES Pain Rating Scale in pediatric emergency department patients
    Gregory Garra
    Department of Emergency Medicine, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY, USA
    Acad Emerg Med 17:50-4. 2010
    ..The hypothesis was that the pain severity ratings on the WBS would be highly correlated (Spearman's rho > 0.80) with those on a VAS...

    Department of Emergency Medicine, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY 1794 8350, USA
    Ann Emerg Med 52:689-95. 2008
    ..We determine how often patients in pain desire and receive analgesics in the emergency department (ED). We hypothesize that many ED patients in pain do not desire analgesics and that most who want them receive them...
  8. doi request reprint Patients overwhelmingly prefer inpatient boarding to emergency department boarding
    Peter Viccellio
    Department of Emergency Medicine, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, New York
    J Emerg Med 45:942-6. 2013

    ..Reliance upon patient assessment in excluding pregnancy is questionable. Physicians are encouraged to obtain pregnancy tests in all women of childbearing age. We affirmed the accuracy of women and their physicians in predicting pregnancy...
