  • Rural Community Disaster Preparedness and Risk Perception in Trujillo, Peru. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2017 Apr 11; :1-6
  • Stewart M, Grahmann B, … Benson LS
  • CONCLUSIONS: Natural and man-made disasters will remain a threat to the safety and health of communities in all parts of the world, especially within vulnerable communities in LMICs; however, little research has been done to identify disaster perception, vulnerability, and preparedness in LMIC communities. The current study established that selected communities near Trujillo, Peru recognize a high disaster impact from earthquakes and infection, but are not adequately prepared for potential future disasters. By identifying high-risk demographics, targeted public health interventions are needed to prepare vulnerable communities in the following areas: emergency food supplies, emergency water plan, medical supplies at home, and establishing evacuation plans.

  • Self-Perception of Medical Students' Knowledge and Interest in Disaster Medicine: Nine Years After the Approval of the Curriculum in German Universities. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2017 Apr 05; :1-8
  • Wunderlich R, Ragazzoni L, … Domres B
  • CONCLUSIONS: German students are still largely not well educated regarding disaster medicine, despite their high motivation. The curriculum of 2006 was not implemented as originally planned and the number of trained students still remains low as the self-perception of knowledge. Currently, there is no clear and standardized training concept in place. A renewal in the agreement of implementation of the curriculum at medical schools should be targeted in order to follow the recommendation of WADEM. Wunderlich R Ragazzoni L Ingrassia PL Della Corte F Grundgeiger J Bickelmayer JW Domres B . Self-perception of medical students' knowledge and interest in disaster medicine: nine years after the approval of the curriculum in German universities. Prehosp Disaster Med. 2017;32(4):1-8.
  • Near-Infrared Spectroscopy: A Promising Prehospital Tool for Management of Traumatic Brain Injury. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2017 Mar 29; :1-5
  • Peters J, Van Wageningen B, … Tan E
  • CONCLUSIONS: Promising results were obtained using the InfraScan NIRS device in prehospital screening for intracranial hematomas in TBI patients. High sensitivity and good specificity were found. Further research is necessary to determine the beneficial effects of enhanced prehospital screening on triage, survival, and quality of life in TBI patients.

  • Use of a Novel, Portable, LED-Based Capillary Refill Time Simulator within a Disaster Triage Context. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2017 Mar 27; :1-6
  • Chang TP, Santillanes G, … Bir C
  • CONCLUSIONS: A simple, LED-based CRT simulator was well received in both settings. Prior to widespread use for disaster triage training, validation on participants' ability to accurately triage disaster victims using CRT simulators and video-based CRT simulations should be performed. Chang TP , Santillanes G , Claudius I , Pham PK , Koved J , Cheyne J , Gausche-Hill M , Kaji AH , Srinivasan S , Donofrio JJ , Bir C . Use of a novel, portable, LED-based capillary refill time simulator within a disaster triage context. Prehosp Disaster Med. 2017;32(4):1-6.
  • Toward a Better Nutritional Aiding in Disasters: Relying on Lessons Learned during the Bam Earthquake. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2017 Mar 27; :1-5
  • Nekouie Moghadam M, Amiresmaieli M, … Khosravi S
  • CONCLUSIONS: The major problems in nutritional aiding include lack of prediction and development of a specific program of suitable nutritional pattern and nutritional assessment of the victims in critical conditions. Forming specialized teams, educating team members about nutrition, and making use of experts' knowledge are the most important steps to resolve these problems in the critical conditions; these measures are the duties of the relevant authorities.
