Overview

Dr. Meckler has a strong interest in the prehospital emergency care of children and has chaired the Oregon EMS for Children Committee on Prehospital Education and developed a simulation-based education program for rural providers throughout the state. His research interests range from bedside clinical questions such as the management of pediatric headache, to medical education and patient safety, and he is currently involved in a large NIH grant to describe the epidemiology of prehospital safety events in the EMS care of children. Dr. Meckler has recently joined the Pediatric Emergency Research Canada network since arriving in Vancouver.

Current projects
Sheridan DC, Spiro DM, Koch TK, and Meckler GD: Use of Propofol for the Treatment of Pediatric Migraine Headache. Pediatric Emergency Care. Pediatric Emergency Care. Dec 2012, 28(12): 1293-96.

This is the first description of a novel therapeutic treatment for pediatric migraine in the emergency department in more than 10 years. The results of this case-control study have lead to the implementation of a prospective randomized controlled trial that is currently approved and will begin recruitment in October, 2012. Based on this work, my mentee has received a national research award from the American Academy of Pediatrics. We have subsequently submitted (under review) a paper describing the national variability in pediatric headache treatment across the US using a nationally representative sample of pediatric ED patients, and have received ethics approval for a prospective randomized controlled clinical trial of low-dose propofol vs. standard migraine therapy for pediatric migraine in the ED.

Small Victims, Big Challenges: Refining Pediatric Disaster Triage Education and Assessing Triage Algorithms in the Prehospital Setting. This multi-center study out of Yale in the US is designed to compare the accuracy of three separate pediatric mass-casualty triage systems utilizing simulation-based video assessment and capitalizing on a natural experiment wherein three adjacent states utilize three distinct triage systems in their pre-hospital EMS systems.

The Epidemiology of Preventable Safety Events in Pre-hospital EMS for Children. This large 5 year NIH funded grant utilizes an innovative mixed-method approach to explore, describe, understand, and test critical elements related to preventable safety events in the pre-hospital care of pediatric patients. Qualitative, quantitative and simulation-based observational data as well as the largest Delphi Survey conducted are being analyzed to understand potentially modifiable contributors to safety risk in this setting.
