  • Preparing for a Foreign Animal Disease Outbreak Using a Novel Tabletop Exercise. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Sep 13; :1-7
  • Linskens EJ, Neu AE, … Cardona CJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Evaluation feedback suggests the SFS exercises were an effective training method to supplement preparedness efforts for an AI outbreak. The concept of using multi-faceted scenarios and multiple education strategies during a tabletop exercise may be translatable to other emergency preparedness needs.Linskens EJ, Neu AE, Walz EJ, St. Charles KM, Culhane MR, Ssematimba A, Goldsmith TJ, Halvorson DA, Cardona CJ. Preparing for a foreign animal disease outbreak using a novel tabletop exercise.
  • Prehospital Invasive Arterial Pressure: Use of a Minimized Flush System. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Aug 31; :1-5
  • Karlsson J, Linde J, … Gellerfors M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Thus, IBP with the mIBP flush system provides accurate measurement of MAP and DBP in a wide range of physiological pressures. For SBP, there was a tendency to under-estimate pressures, with larger error in lower pressures. Implementation of a simplified flush system could allow further development and potentially simplify the use of IBP for prehospital critical care teams.Karlsson J, Linde J, Svensen C, Gellerfors M. Prehospital invasive arterial pressure: use of a minimized flush system.
  • Effects of Tactical Emergency Casualty Care Training for Law Enforcement Officers. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Aug 31; :1-6
  • Rothschild HR, Mathieson K
  • CONCLUSIONS: This is the most comprehensive study of TECC use among LEOs to date that supports the importance of TECC training for all LEOs in prehospital trauma care. Results of this study showed TECC training prepared LEOs with the operational tools necessary to provide immediate, on-scene medical care to successfully stabilize victims of trauma. Continuing to train increasing numbers of LEOs in TECC is key to saving the lives of victims of trauma in the future.Rothschild HR, Mathieson K. Effects of Tactical Emergency Casualty Care training for law enforcement officers.
  • Hospital Surge Capacity during Expo 2015 in Milano, Italy. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Aug 29; :1-7
  • Faccincani R, Della Corte F, … Ingrassia P
  • CONCLUSIONS: Surge capacity is dependent on the method of measurement. Each method has its inherent deficiencies. Until more reliable methodologies are developed, there is a benefit to analyze surge capacity using several methods rather than just one. Emergency committee members should be aware of the importance of critical resources when looking to the hospital capacity to respond to an MCI, and to the possibility to effectively increase it with a good preparedness plan. Since hospital capacity during real events is not static but dynamic, largely depending on occupation of the available resources, it is important that the regional command center and the hospitals receiving casualties constantly communicate on specific agreed upon critical resources, in order for the regional command center to timely evaluate the overall regional capacity and guarantee the appropriate distribution of the patients.Faccincani R, Della Corte F, Sesana G, Stucchi R, Weinstein E, Ashkenazi I, Ingrassia P. Hospital surge capacity during Expo 2015 in Milano, Italy.
  • Barriers to Providing Prehospital Care to Ischemic Stroke Patients: Predictors and Impact on Care. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Aug 29; :1-7
  • Li T, Cushman JT, … Jones CMC
  • CONCLUSIONS: Barriers to providing prehospital care were documented for a sizable proportion of ischemic stroke patients, with the majority related to patient access and communication, and occurred more frequently among non-white and non-black patients and those living alone. Although EMS on-scene time was longer for patients with barriers to care, the proportion of patients receiving tPA in the ED did not differ.Li T, Cushman JT, Shah MN, Kelly AG, Rich DQ, Jones CMC. Barriers to providing prehospital care to ischemic stroke patients: predictors and impact on care.
  • A Comparison Between Differently Skilled Prehospital Emergency Care Providers in Major-Incident Triage in South Africa. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Aug 29; :1-6
  • Alenyo AN, Smith WP, … Van Hoving DJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Accuracy of major-incident triage across all levels of prehospital providers in South Africa is less than optimal with non-significant differences post-major-incident training. Prior major-incident training played a significant role in triage accuracy indicating that training should be an ongoing process. Although ALS providers were the quickest to complete triage, this difference was not clinically significant. The BLS and ILS providers with major-incident training can thus be utilized for primary major-incident triage allowing ALS providers to focus on more clinical roles.Alenyo AN, Smith WP, McCaul M, Van Hoving DJ. A comparison between differently skilled prehospital emergency care providers in major-incident triage in South Africa.
  • Avoid the Goose! Paramedic Identification of Esophageal Intubation by Ultrasound. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018; 33(4):406-410
  • Lema PC, O'Brien M, … Clemency B
  • CONCLUSIONS: Paramedics can accurately identify esophageal intubations with POCUS, and manipulation improves identification. Further studies of paramedic use of dynamic POCUS to identify inadvertent esophageal intubations are needed. LemaPC, O'BrienM, WilsonJ, St. JamesE, LindstromH, DeAngelisJ, CaldwellJ, MayP, ClemencyB. Avoid the goose! Paramedic identification of esophageal intubation by ultrasound. Prehosp Disaster Med. 2018;33(4):406-410.
