  • Paramedics' Perspectives on Factors Impacting On-Scene Times for Trauma Calls. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 May 06; :1-6
  • Levitan M, Law MP, … Bachelor of Clinical Practice
  • CONCLUSIONS: These findings demonstrate the complexity of the prehospital environment and bring into question the feasibility of the 10-minute OST standard. LevitanM, LawMP, FerronR, Lutz-GraulK. Paramedics' perspectives on factors impacting on-scene times for trauma calls.
  • Weekly Checks Improve Real-Time Prehospital ECG Transmission in Suspected STEMI. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Apr 30; :1-5
  • D'Arcy NT, Bosson N, … Niemann JT
  • CONCLUSIONS: Implementation of weekly test ECG transmissions was associated with improvement in successful real-time transmissions from field to hospital, which provided a median advanced notification time of 16 minutes, but no decrease in FMC2B or D2B times. D'ArcyNT, BossonN, KajiAH, BuiQT, FrenchWJ, ThomasJL, ElizarrarazY, GonzalezN, GarciaJ, NiemannJT. Weekly checks improve real-time prehospital ECG transmission in suspected STEMI.
  • Skills and Core Competencies of Pharmacists in Humanitarian Assistance. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Apr 27; :1-7
  • Vardanyan H, Mosegui GBG, Miranda ES
  • CONCLUSIONS: Self-management in a pressured and changing environment, the ability to adapt to changing situations, and planning, prioritizing, and performing tasks well under pressure are the skills required for pharmacists and for any other humanitarian health worker. The results highlight great efforts being dedicated to pharmaceutical product supply and management by pharmacists working in HA. VardanyanH, MoseguiGBG, MirandaES. Skills and core competencies of pharmacists in humanitarian assistance.
  • Dispatcher CPR Instructions Across the Age Continuum. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Apr 26; :1-4
  • Weinmeister KL, Lerner EB, … Pirrallo RG
  • CONCLUSIONS: The rate of EMS-documented bystander CPR was low, even though these municipalities provided dispatcher-assisted CPR instructions. The highest rates of bystander CPR were observed in children (0-12 years). Future investigations should determine why this occurs and if there are opportunities to modify dispatcher coaching based on patient age so that bystander CPR rates improve.

  • Orthopedic Knowledge and Need in the Provincial Philippines: Pilot Study of a Population-Based Survey. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Apr 23; :1-6
  • Courtney CS, Kirsch TD
  • CONCLUSIONS: The survey describes perceived barriers to care and gaps in knowledge for acute orthopedic injuries. With some modification, this survey tool could be expanded and utilized on a regional or national level to assess gaps in knowledge and barriers to acute orthopedic care. CourtneyCS, KirschTD. Orthopedic knowledge and need in the Provincial Philippines: pilot study of a population-based survey.
  • Comparison of Thermal Manikin Modeling and Human Subjects' Response During Use of Cooling Devices Under Personal Protective Ensembles in the Heat. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Apr 19; :1-9
  • Quinn T, Kim JH, … Coca A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Personal cooling device use in conjunction with impermeable PPE may be advantageous in mitigating physiological and perceptual burdens of heat stress. Evaluation of PCDs worn under PPE can be done effectively via human or manikin testing; however, Tsk may be over-estimated and weight loss may be under-estimated. Thermal manikin testing of PCDs may provide fast and accurate information to persons recommending or using PCDs with PPE. QuinnT, KimJH, SeoY, CocaA. Comparison of thermal manikin modeling and human subjects' response during use of cooling devices under personal protective ensembles in the heat.
  • Prehospital Blood Product Administration Opportunities in Ground Transport ALS EMS - A Descriptive Study. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Apr 19; :1-7
  • Mix FM, Zielinski MD, … Sztajnkrycer MD
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this study population, HD parameters alone did not predict need for ED blood product administration. Despite longer transport times, only one-third of HEMS patients meeting HD criteria for blood administration received prehospital transfusion. While one-third of ground Advanced Life Support (ALS) transport patients manifesting HD compromise received blood products in the ED, this represented 0.2% of total trauma transports over the study period. Given complex logistical issues involved in prehospital blood product administration, opportunities for ground administration appear limited within the described system.

  • Needle Thoracostomy: Does Changing Needle Length and Location Change Patient Outcome? [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Apr 19; :1-8
  • Weichenthal LA, Owen S, … Ramos J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Changing the timing, length of needle, and location of placement did not change mortality in patients requiring NT. Needle thoracostomy was used more frequently after the change in policy, and the MAL cohort was less injured. No increase in reported complications was noted. WeichenthalLA, OwenS, StrohG, RamosJ. Needle thoracostomy: does changing needle length and location change patient outcome?
