  • Incidence and Outcomes after Out-of-Hospital Medical Emergencies in Gambia: A Case for the Integration of Prehospital Care and Emergency Medical Services in Primary Health Care. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Nov 15; :1-8
  • Touray S, Sanyang B, … Touray I
  • CONCLUSIONS: There is a high incidence of acute medical emergencies among adults in The Gambia which are associated with adverse outcomes due to a combination of poor health literacy, high out-of-pocket expenditures on medications, and poor access to timely prehospital emergency care. There is an urgent need to develop prehospital acute care and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) in the primary health sector as part of a strategy to reduce mortality and morbidity in the country.Touray S, Sanyang B, Zandrow G, Touray I. Incidence and outcomes after out-of-hospital medical emergencies in Gambia: a case for the integration of prehospital care and Emergency Medical Services in primary health care.
  • Needs Assessment for Simulation Training for Prehospital Providers in Botswana. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Nov 13; :1-6
  • Glomb NW, Kosoko AA, … Laba B
  • CONCLUSIONS: Trauma, respiratory distress, gastrointestinal complaints, and puerperal/perinatal emergencies were common conditions for all age groups. Other age-specific conditions were also identified as educational needs based on epidemiologic data and provider feedback. This needs assessment may be useful when designing locally relevant EMS curricula in other low-income and middle-income countries.Glomb NW, Kosoko AA, Doughty CB, Rus MC, Shah MI, Cox M, Galapi C, Parkes PS, Kumar S, Laba B. Needs assessment for simulation training for prehospital providers in Botswana.
  • Improvement of General Disaster Preparedness Belief Scale Based on Health Belief Model. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Nov 12; :1-10
  • Inal E, Dogan N
  • CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that the scale with 45 items shows improvement in the scale with 31 items. This study indicates that the GDPB scale with 45 items based on HBM has acceptable validity and reliability. This tool can be used in disaster preparedness surveys.Inal E, Dogan N. Improvement of General Disaster Preparedness Belief scale based on Health Belief Model.
  • Field Expedient Vasopressors During Aeromedical Evacuation: A Case Series from the Puerto Rico Disaster Response. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Nov 09; :1-5
  • Hardwick JM, Murnan SD, … Devlin JJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Field expedient vasopressors were safely and effectively employed in an austere field environment during a disaster response. This case series contributes to the growing body of literature of safe bolus-dose vasopressor use by emergency physicians to temporize hypotensive patients in resource-constrained situations.Hardwick JM, Murnan SD, Morrison-Ponce DP, Devlin JJ. Field expedient vasopressors during aeromedical evacuation: a case series from the Puerto Rico disaster response.
  • Health-Seeking Behavior of Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome and Their Family Caregivers. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Nov 05; :1-7
  • Kumboyono K, Refialdinata J, … Aziz AN
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results showed that in the prehospital setting when experiencing ACS symptoms, the patients try to overcome the symptoms independently. However, as the symptoms get worse, they utilize health facilities in different ways. At the time of obtaining health services, patients are satisfied with health professionals who show caring attitudes, explain the results of the examination, and provide health education on health care efforts. Thus, to prevent mortality and morbidity, it is important for a health professional to educate the public about ACS, including topics about ACS healthy lifestyles and potential threats if it is too late to get treatment. Furthermore, it is also important for the government to implement prehospital emergency services nation-wide.Kumboyono K, Refialdinata J, Wihastuti TA, Rachmawati SD, Aziz AN. Health-seeking behavior of patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome and their family caregivers.
  • Building Local Capacity in Hand-Rub Solution Production during the 2014-2016 Ebola Outbreak Disaster: The Case of Liberia and Guinea. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2018 Nov 05; :1-8
  • Jacquerioz Bausch FA, Heller O, … Hagon O
  • CONCLUSIONS: The project demonstrated that it was feasible to build local capacity in ABHRS production during an emergency and in limited-resource settings when materials and training are provided. Future programs in similar contexts should identify and address the factors of sustainability during the implementation phase and provide regular, long-term technical support.Jacquerioz Bausch FA, Heller O, Bengaly L,Matthey-Khouity B, Bonnabry P, Touré Y, Kervillain GJ, Bah EI, Chappuis F, Hagon O. Building local capacity in hand-rub solution production during the 2014-2016 Ebola outbreak disaster: the case of Liberia and Guinea.
