Migraine in the Emergency Department

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Diagnostic testing is of limited value among patients with migraine who present to an emergency department. Various nonopioid, disease-specific treatments are available for patients who present to an emergency department with migraine headache and associated features. Emergency physicians should recognize that the acute migraine presentation is part of an underlying disorder; care should be geared to the underlying headache disorder in addition to the acute attack.
