In situ simulation training in helicopter emergency medical services: feasible for on-call crews? | Advances in Simulation | Full Text

Simulation-based training of emergency teams offers a safe learning environment in which training in the management of the critically ill patient can be planned and practiced without harming the patient. We developed a concept for in situ simulation that can be carried out during on-call time. The aim of this study is to investigate theContinue reading “In situ simulation training in helicopter emergency medical services: feasible for on-call crews? | Advances in Simulation | Full Text”

Ketamine in acute phase of severe traumatic brain injury “an old drug for new uses?” | Critical Care | Full Text

Maintaining an adequate level of sedation and analgesia plays a key role in the management of traumatic brain injury (TBI). To date, it is unclear which drug or combination of drugs is most effective in achieving these goals. Ketamine is an agent with attractive pharmacological and pharmacokinetics characteristics. Current evidence shows that ketamine does notContinue reading “Ketamine in acute phase of severe traumatic brain injury “an old drug for new uses?” | Critical Care | Full Text”
