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-hospital management of penetrating neck injuries: a scoping review of current evidence and guidance | Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine | Full Text

Penetrating injuries to the neck pose a unique challenge to clinicians due to the proximity of multiple significant anatomical structures with little protective soft tissue coverage. Injuries to this area, whilst low in incidence, are potentially devastating. Respiratory, vascular, gastro-oesophageal and neurological structures may all be involved, either in isolation or combination. These injuries areContinue reading “Pre-hospital management of penetrating neck injuries: a scoping review of current evidence and guidance | Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine | Full Text”
