  • [Current status of fibreoptic bronchoscopy in intensive care medicine]. [Journal Article]
    Med Intensiva 2012; 36(9):644-9Martin-Loeches I, Artigas A, … Cuñat J
  • Flexible bronchoscopy (FB) has been of great help in the management of critically ill patients. Its safety and usefulness in the hands of experienced professionals, with the required measures of caution, has resulted in the increasingly widespread use of the technique even in unstable critical patients subjected to mechanical ventilation and with high oxygen demands. The Spanish Society of Intens…
  • Distance learning and the internet in respiratory therapy education. [Journal Article]
    Respir Care 2011; 56(11):1808-11Varekojis SM, Sergakis GG, … Clutter J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our results indicate that, while distance education plays an important supportive role in RT education, there is still a preference for face-to-face instruction and Internet-facilitated courses among program directors. Program directors continue to view the laboratory and clinical settings as hands-on environments that require instructor supervision in order for students to demonstrate proficiency and critical thinking skills. When used appropriately, distance learning may be an efficient and effective approach to address the many barriers to education faced by the health workforce in general, including budget constraints, overloaded schedules, the need for on-the-job learning opportunities, and lack of access.
  • Medical care delivery at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. [Journal Article]
    World J Emerg Med 2011; 2(4):267-71Zhang JJ, Wang LD, … Dai JP
  • CONCLUSIONS: Preparations of the medical service for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games were made for 7 years, and the service provided has been praised worldwide. This study provides valuable information that may be useful for planning medical services for upcoming Olympic Games, including the London 2012 Olympic Games and other mass gatherings.
  • How I manage the adult potential organ donor: donation after cardiac death (part 2). [Case Reports]
    Neurocrit Care 2010; 12(1):111-6Frontera JA
  • To address the gap between organs available for transplant and the number of patients on the transplant waiting list, the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, Institute of Medicine, United Network for Organ Sharing and the federal government have recommended the increased used of donation after cardiac death (DCD) (JCAHOnline…
  • A comparison of problem-based learning and traditional curricula in baccalaureate respiratory therapy education. [Journal Article]
    Respir Care 2007; 52(11):1497-506Beachey WD
  • CONCLUSIONS: Respiratory-therapy graduates from the 2 PBL programs were more satisfied with their program's overall quality than were the graduates of the 2 traditional-curricula programs. Moreover, the PBL teaching and learning method did not place graduates at a disadvantage on standardized, objective tests of knowledge (the licensing and credentialing examinations). These findings are consistent with similar published studies on PBL approaches in medical and health care professional education.
  • Respiratory care manpower issues. [Journal Article]
    Crit Care Med 2006; 34(3 Suppl):S32-45Mathews P, Drumheller L, … Council on Accreditation of Respiratory Care
  • CONCLUSIONS: This article provides a short history of the development of respiratory care and its historical relationship with critical care. We have, perhaps for the first time, provided a unified data set of key demographic information from the three professional bodies guiding the development of the respiratory therapy profession. This data set provides time-linked data on admissions and graduations from the CoARC, membership numbers for the AARC, and the numbers of active credentialed RCP from the NBRC. By two focused surveys, we were able to show that while mandatory overtime is a common practice in respiratory care departments, it was not overwhelming utilized. We also learned that in most hospitals, regardless of bed size, there is a perceived need for 1.3 RCPs more than the actual staff and that it appears that the critical staffing level between actual to preferred RCP to beds is between 9 and 11 beds.
  • Are you ready for an influx of SARS patients? [Journal Article]
    ED Manag 2004; 16(11):suppl(2) 1-3
  • Under a new accreditation standard, EDs and all departments must be prepared to handle an influx, or the risk of an influx, of infectious patients. Collaborate with your infection control committee, disaster management committee, local board of health, and other providers to develop protocols and policies. Hold disaster drills in which you must handle infectious patients. ED staff, particularly t…
  • Clinical practice guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of respiratory tract infections. [Review]
    Am J Manag Care 2001; 7(6 Suppl):S183-91McCracken GH
  • Clinical practice guidelines can be indispensable tools for managed care organizations (MCOs) in providing cost-effective treatment of common conditions. Guidelines for acute respiratory tract infections, such as acute otitis media (AOM) and acute sinusitis, can assist clinicians in accurately diagnosing these conditions, in providing treatment rationales, and in reducing the costs associated wit…
