A Delphi study of rescue and clinical subject matter experts on the extrication of patients following a motor vehicle collision | Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine | Full Text

Approximately 1.3 million people die each year globally as a direct result of motor vehicle collisions (MVCs). Following an MVC some patients will remain trapped in their vehicle; these patients have worse outcomes and may require extrication. Following new evidence, updated multidisciplinary guidance for extrication is needed. This Delphi study has been developed, conducted andContinue reading “A Delphi study of rescue and clinical subject matter experts on the extrication of patients following a motor vehicle collision | Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine | Full Text”

Advanced interventions in the pre-hospital resuscitation of patients with non-compressible haemorrhage after penetrating injuries | Critical Care | Full Text

Early haemorrhage control and minimizing the time to definitive care have long been the cornerstones of therapy for patients exsanguinating from non-compressible haemorrhage (NCH) after penetrating injuries, as only basic treatment could be provided on scene. However, more recently, advanced on-scene treatments such as the transfusion of blood products, resuscitative thoracotomy (RT) and resuscitative endovascularContinue reading “Advanced interventions in the pre-hospital resuscitation of patients with non-compressible haemorrhage after penetrating injuries | Critical Care | Full Text”

Pre- and apnoeic high-flow oxygenation for rapid sequence intubation in the emergency department (the Pre-AeRATE trial): A multicentre randomised controlled trial – Annals Singapore

Critically ill patients in the emergency department (ED) have shorter safe apnoea times due to physiological distress from decreased cardiac output, increased shunting and reduced pulmonary reserves.1 Hypoxia is a commonly encountered adverse event during rapid sequence intubation (RSI)2 and is associated with cardiac arrest, neurological injury and death.3 Therefore, there is significant interest inContinue reading “Pre- and apnoeic high-flow oxygenation for rapid sequence intubation in the emergency department (the Pre-AeRATE trial): A multicentre randomised controlled trial – Annals Singapore”
