Abstract We review some of the most influential papers from 2012 in the different aspects of emergency medicine, such as prehospital medicine, resuscitation, early diagnosis and timely ED discharge and treatment. In particular, intramuscular benzodiazepines have been shown to be efficient in prehospital status epilepticus, epinephrines usefulness in cardiopulmonary resuscitation has been challenged, colloids have been shown to be deleterious in the treatment of severe sepsis and septic shock, the time window for thrombolysis in acute stroke will probably be extended, acute pyelonephritis treatment duration can be decreased, new D-dimers thresholds for older patients may prevent further diagnosis tests, and hs-Troponin may allow earlier discharge of low coronary risk patients.
