Dear AENJ Colleague,

As you know, the Advanced Emergency Nursing Journal seeks to promote high quality, evidence-based care. Therefore, this year, we will be adding two new columns. In addition to Research to Practice (Dian Evans-Column Editor), Imaging (Denise Ramponi-Column Editor), Applied Pharmacology (Kyle Weant-Column Editor) and Cases of Note (Kathleen Jordan-Column Editor), we will create a Procedures Column (Jennifer Wilbeck-Column Editor) and a Dermatology Column (Nicole Martinez-Column Editor). Watch for supplemental digital content in upcoming issues, especially in these columns! We also hope to offer more continuing education contact hours (CECH) in each issue as well.

"Difficult-airway prediction tools help identify optimal airway techniques, but were derived in elective surgery patients and may not be applicable to emergency rapid sequence intubation (RSI). The HEAVEN criteria (Hypoxemia, Extremes of size, Anatomic abnormalities, Vomit/blood/fluid, Exsanguination, Neck mobility issues) may be more relevant to emergency RSI patients."
