Introduction: Current guidelines recommend patients with first trimester bleeding without previously documented intrauterine pregnancy undergo urgent transvaginal ultrasound (TVUS) to exclude ectopic pregnancy. However, in Canadian practice to receive urgent TVUS, particularly out of daytime hours is difficult, if not impossible. Thus, when TVUS is not available to exclude ectopic pregnancy, providers use point of care ultrasound (POCUS) or their best clinical judgment to determine if the patient can be safely discharged home while awaiting outpatient follow-up. The objective of this study was to determine what proportion of first trimester patients presenting to a community hospital emergency department (ED) with vaginal bleeding undergo either TVUS or POCUS to exclude ectopic pregnancy. Methods: This is an ongoing retrospective chart review of pregnant women gestational age (GA) less than 20 weeks presenting to a community hospital ED (103,000 visits/year) with a discharge diagnosis of vaginal bleed, first trimester bleed, threatened abortion, spontaneous abortion, missed abortion, rule out ectopic pregnancy, and ectopic pregnancy from January 2016 - January 2017. Patients are excluded if they are diagnosed with a ruptured ectopic pregnancy during their index ED visit. To date, 98 patient charts have been reviewed. Results: Of the 98 included patients, 13 (13.3%) had a viable pregnancy, 37 (37.8%) had a spontaneous or missed abortion, 4 (4.1%) had an ectopic pregnancy, and 45 (45.9%) had unknown outcomes. Of included patients, 4 (4.1%) only had POCUS, 66 (67.4%) only had a radiologist-interpreted TVUS, and 3 (3.1%) had both POCUS and radiologist-interpreted TVUS during their ED index visits. Thus, 73 (74.5%) had either a radiologist-interpreted TVUS or ED provider-performed POCUS during their index ED visit. After their index ED visits, 2 (2.0%) patients returned with ruptured ectopic pregnancies, 1 of whom had not undergone initial US investigations. Conclusion: Although TVUS is standard of care to exclude ectopic pregnancy in patients presenting with first trimester bleeding or abdominal pain, our preliminary results show some patients are not receiving this diagnostic modality nor POCUS during their index ED visit. Particularly in a setting, such as this ED, without rapid access to an early pregnancy clinic, patients should be counselled about their risk of ectopic pregnancy at the time of ED discharge.
