OBJECTIVE: Sex disparities in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) care processes have been reported. This study aimed to investigate the association between sex and prehospital advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) interventions provided by emergency medical services in Japan. METHODS: We analyzed data from January 1, 2013, to December 31, 2020, from the All-Japan Utstein Registry of patients with OHCA aged ≥18 years who were resuscitated by bystanders. The primary outcomes were prehospital ACLS interventions, including advanced airway management (AAM) and epinephrine administration...

Junctional hemorrhage remains a difficult source of bleeding to control with the groin being the most common location. FemoStop devices are a well established tool for achieving hemostasis in post cardiac catheterization femoral access site hemorrhage. Massive hemorrhage is a traumatic presentation well known to emergency physicians and trauma surgeons alike. We describe a case of traumatic proximal femoral artery injury with expanding hematoma and hemorrhage control with a FemoStop device applied in the emergency department...

INTRODUCTION: The modified accelerated diagnostic protocol (ADP) to assess patients with chest pain symptoms using troponin as the only biomarker (mADAPT), the History, ECG, Age, Risk factors, and Troponin (HEART) pathway, and the Emergency Department Assessment of Chest Pain Rule (EDACS)-ADP, are the three most well-known ADPs for patients with chest pain. These ADPs define major adverse cardiac event (MACE) as components of acute myocardial infarction, revascularization, and death; unstable angina is not included as an endpoint...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of early intravenous (IV) calcium on systolic blood pressure (SBP) when administered with IV diltiazem in subjects with atrial fibrillation (AF) or flutter (AFL) with rapid ventricular response (RVR) in the Emergency Department (ED). METHODS: This was a multicenter, retrospective cohort study that evaluated adults admitted to the ED with documented AF or AFL, heart rate (HR) > 120 bpm, SBP 90 to 140 mmHg, and received treatment with IV diltiazem for rate control...

BACKGROUND: Refractory ventricular fibrillation (VF) and pulseless ventricular tachycardia (pVT) cardiac arrest describes a subset of patients who do not respond to standard Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) interventions and are associated with poor outcomes. Esmolol administration and vector change defibrillation have shown promise in improving outcomes in these patients, however evidence is limited. OBJECTIVES: This study compares clinical outcomes between patients with prehospital refractory VF/pVT who received an Emergency Medical Service (EMS) bundle, comprised of esmolol administration, vector change defibrillation, and dose-capped epinephrine at 3 mg, to patients who received standard ACLS interventions...

BACKGROUND: The cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) compression to ventilation strategy remains controversial. We conducted a meta-analysis to compare the outcomes between continuous chest compressions CPR with asynchronous ventilation (CCC-CPR) and interrupted chest compressions CPR with synchronous ventilation (ICC-CPR) in cardiac arrest. METHODS: PubMed, Web of Science, Embase, MEDLINE (Ovid/LWW) and the Cochrane Libraries were searched up from inception to July 31, 2022...

INTRODUCTION: The iodinated contrast material (ICM) shortage of 2022 has affected healthcare systems worldwide, forcing institutions to adapt by implementing interventions to conserve ICM without compromising patient care. We aim to present the practices proven to be effective in reducing ICM consumption to improve resource allocation in trauma patients. METHODS: A literature search of PubMed, Google Scholar, and Cochrane was conducted. Studies investigating the utility of ICM in the management of trauma & emergency surgery patients, as well as institutional interventions that were implicated as a response to the ICM shortage of 2022 were included for review...

BACKGROUND: Ischemic heart disease is the leading cause of mortality worldwide, and its prevalence is rising. OBJECTIVE: The goal of this study was to evaluate the HEART and T-MACS scores for predicting major cardiac events (MACE) in patients presenting to the emergency department with chest pain. METHOD: This study was single center and prospectively conducted. The demographic information, T-MACS and HEART scores of the participants were recorded and calculated...

INTRODUCTION: Emergency departments (EDs) play an integral role in a community's response to disaster. Terrorist attacks targeting EDs have the potential to disrupt the emergency response apparatus. Understanding prior attacks against EDs can yield important lessons to mitigate the impact of future violence. METHODS: In this review, the authors used the Global Terrorism Database to conduct a search on terrorist attacks targeting EDs between 1970 and 2018. Using the search terms "doctor," "nurses," "hospital," "healthcare," "clinic," "vaccinators," and "vaccinations," a total of 2322 healthcare-specific incidents were isolated...

INTRODUCTION: People who experience human trafficking (HT) visit emergency departments (ED). The International Classification of Diseases, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM) introduced codes to document HT in June 2018. The aim of this study is to identify characteristics of ED patients who experienced forced labor or sexual exploitation as a documented external cause of morbidity in US visits. METHODS: Nationally representative surveillance based on patient visits to 989 hospital-owned EDs in the Nationwide Emergency Department Sample in 2019 became available in 2021...

REVIEW

Therapeutic hypothermia was recommended as the only neuroprotective treatment in comatose patients after return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). With new evidence suggesting a similar neuroprotective effect of 36 °C and 33 °C, the term "therapeutic hypothermia" was substituted by "targeted temperature management" in 2011, which in turn was replaced by the term "temperature control" in 2022 because of new evidence of the similar effects of target normothermia and 33 °C. However, there is no clear consensus on the efficacy of therapeutic hypothermia...

REVIEW

BACKGROUND: Spurred by the Coronavirus infectious disease 2019 pandemic, aerosol containment devices (ACDs) were developed to capture infectious respiratory aerosols generated by patients at their source. Prior reviews indicated that such devices had low evidence of effectiveness, but did not address how ACDs should be evaluated, how well they should perform, nor have clearly defined performance standards. Towards developing design criteria for ACDs, two questions were posed: 1) What characteristics have guided the design of ACDs? 2) How have these characteristics been evaluated? METHODS: A scoping review was performed consistent with PRISMA guidelines...

INTRODUCTION: There is limited evidence regarding the effects of a pre-existing heart failure (HF) on the diagnostic yield of pulmonary embolism (PE) evaluation in the Emergency Department (ED). METHODS: Electronic medical record of consecutive adults who underwent a computed tomography pulmonary angiogram (CTPA) in the ED at Loma Linda University Medical Center between June 1, 2019 and March 25, 2022 were reviewed. Repeat studies for the same patient and patients with unspecified HF diagnoses or isolated right ventricular HF were excluded...
