Auckland HEMS Checklist Reference Manual

Originally posted on Auckland HEMS:

Dear colleagues,

In June of this year our Canadian HEMS Fellow Dr. Robert Gooch shared one of our emergency checklists with the Prehospital and Retrieval Medicine (PHARM) community. Thank you to those of you who provided feedback on this initiative. We continue to draw inspiration from the work of Dr. Atul Gawande. http://atulgawande.com/

Now, in the spirit of Free Open Access Medicine, we are keen to share our complete Auckland HEMS Checklist Reference Manual with the PHARM community. At the start of September we made this manual operational within our service.

Innovation is one element of success; implementation is another core element.  http://www.sjtrem.com/content/19/1/53/abstract This article emphasizes the importance of end-users ‘the sharp end’ being involved throughout the checklist development process.

Why the VideoLarygoscopy don’t gonna kill the DirectLaryngoscopy (at least in the near future)

Originally posted on MEDEST:

A novel publication goes to enrich the long-living debate on direct laryngoscopy (DL) vs video laryngoscopy (VL) efficacy in emergency intubation.

The recent article, pubblished on JEMS and titled  “Deploying the Video Laryngoscope into a Ground EMS System” ,compares the success rate beetwen DL vs VL in a ground EMS Service. The device used was the King Vision with channeled blade. The partecipants had a prior training on the divide, consisting in didactic orientation and practical skills on manikins.

The result of the study shown that “Within the first 100 days of the study, the video laryngoscope utilizing the channeled blade has shown to be at least as effective as DL in relation to first-attempt success” and considering that “the mean experience in our group with DL is nine years, yet the success rate remains unacceptable” “It’s time to consider transition from a skill that’s difficult to obtain and maintain…
