  • Heterogeneity in Military Trauma Casualty Care. [Journal Article]
  • MMMil Med 2019 Jun 27
  • Englert Z, Kinard J, … Hall A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Trauma teams can vary significantly in their efficiency in evaluating trauma patients. Whether this is clinically significant is currently debatable, but it highlights a possible readiness gap for deploying military personnel and the heterogeneity of military combat casualty care.
  • Gluteal, abdominal, and thoracic multiple impalement injuries: A case report on management of a complex polytrauma. [Case Reports]
  • MMedicine (Baltimore) 2019; 98(22):e15824
  • Ugoletti L, Zizzo M, … Annessi V
  • CONCLUSIONS: Impalement injury represents a rare and potentially lethal traumatic event. Unstable patients rarely reach Emergency Department alive. On the contrary, stable patients have a good chance of successful treatment, if they are quickly taken to tertiary Trauma Center. In this case, chest X-ray and Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma (FAST) represent useful diagnosing investigations, although CT scan remains gold standard. Conservative treatment is not possible, while thoracoscopy/laparoscopy/laparotomy is/are mandatory.

  • Predictors of Hypothermia upon Trauma Center Arrival in Severe Trauma Patients Transported to Hospital via EMS. [Journal Article]
  • PEPrehosp Emerg Care 2019 Apr 04; :1-8
  • Forristal C, Van Aarsen K, … Mal S
  • CONCLUSIONS: This retrospective study of hypothermia in major trauma patients found a rate of hypothermia of 5%. Factors associated with higher risk of hypothermia include pre-MTC intubation, high ISS, multiple comorbidities, low SBP, non-penetrating mechanism of injury, and being transferred directly to MTC, and colder outdoor temperature. Avoidance of hypothermia is imperative to the management of major trauma patients. Prospective studies are required to determine if prehospital warming in these high-risk patients decreases the rate of hypothermia in major trauma and improves patient outcomes.
