  • Adherence to Pediatric Cardiac Arrest Guidelines Across a Spectrum of Fifty Emergency Departments: A Prospective, In Situ, Simulation-based Study. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrated variable adherence to pediatric cardiac arrest guidelines across a spectrum of EDs. Overall adherence was not associated with ED pediatric volume. Medium-high-volume EDs demonstrated the highest levels of adherence for BLS and PEA. Lower-volume EDs were noted to have lower adherence to BLS guidelines. Improved adherence was not directly associated with higher PRS score provider experience, simulation teamwork performance, or more providers with PALS training. This study demonstrates that current approaches optimizing the care of children in cardiac arrest in the ED (provider training, teamwork training, environmental preparation) are insufficient.

  • Digoxin use in systemic light-chain (AL) amyloidosis: contra-indicated or cautious use? [Journal Article]
  • AAmyloid 2018; 25(2):86-92
  • Muchtar E, Gertz MA, … Grogan M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Digoxin may be cautiously utilized in AL amyloidosis patients. We suggest its use in lower doses and frequent drug concentration monitoring along with close monitoring of electrolytes and renal function. Nonetheless, toxicity at low serum concentration cannot be excluded due to potential for toxic concentration at the tissue level and should be taken under consideration when prescribing digoxin for these patients. Studies with higher-level evidence are needed to confirm these findings.
  • The dead and the dying - a difficult part of EMS transport: A Swiss cross-sectional study. [Journal Article]
  • PlosPLoS One 2018; 13(2):e0191879
  • Hasler RM, Stucky S, … Neff F
  • CONCLUSIONS: The low ED mortality rate of 0.9% shows that only a few dying patients are transported to hospital. However, transport to hospital has to be carefully evaluated, especially for elderly patients with asystole or PEA due to medical conditions. The low CPR rate from bystanders demonstrates that public CPR training should be promoted further. The use of Lucas™2 did not reduce the operating time on site. For further investigations, comparison with survivors would be needed.
