BTS/ICS guideline for the ventilatory management of acute hypercapnic respiratory failure in adults
TLDR
Oxygen enrichment should be adjusted to achieve SaO2 88–92% in all causes of acute hypercapnic respiratory failure (AHRF) treated by NIV, and oxygen should be entrained as close to the patient as possible. Expand
Emergency treatment of anaphylactic reactions--guidelines for healthcare providers.
TLDR
Patients who have an anaphylactic reaction have life-threatening airway and breathing problems usually associated with skin or mucosal changes and should be treated using the Airway, Breathing, Circulation, Disability, Exposure (ABCDE) approach. Expand
Systemic responses to trauma.
  • B. Foëx
  • Medicine
  • British medical bulletin
  • 1999
TLDR
The systemic responses to trauma can be divided into cardiovascular, immunological, and metabolic responses, which are seen immediately after a traumatic insult and need to be taken into account during the recovery from treatment and during the rehabilitation of the patient. Expand
British Thoracic Society/Intensive Care Society Guideline for the ventilatory management of acute hypercapnic respiratory failure in adults
TLDR
The British Thoracic Society published the guideline ‘The use of non-invasive ventilation in acute respiratory failure’ in 2002 based on evidence that, when NIV was used in the less severely unwell patient, it also limited progression to more severe respiratory failure. Expand
Feasibility and impact of a structured, exercise-based rehabilitation programme for intensive care survivors
TLDR
Outpatient, physiotherapy-lead rehabilitation appears to improve both exercise capacity and anxiety and depression scores in a cohort of intensive care survivors, and should be tested in a randomised controlled trial. Expand
Injury (nociceptive afferent nerve stimulation) modifies the hemodynamic and metabolic responses to hemorrhage in immature swine
TLDR
When hemorrhage occurs in the presence of nerve stimulation (injury), the relative protection of the gut circulation is attenuated and this effect persists after the end of hemorrhage and reinfusion, however, there was no evidence that injury increased the hemorrhage/surgery-induced cytokine and endotoxin responses.

The problem of informed consent in emergency medicine research

  • Medicine
  • Emergency medicine journal : EMJ
  • 1 May 2001
TLDR
In this review the issue of consent in human experimentation is presented with a special emphasis on the problems faced in emergency medicine research, and the way these have been tackled. Expand
Modification of the cardiovascular response to hemorrhage by somatic afferent nerve stimulation with special reference to gut and skeletal muscle blood flow.
TLDR
The sparing of the gut circulation after hemorrhage was abolished in the presence of "injury," consistent with injury eliciting the defense reaction and may help explain the deleterious effects of injury on resistance to hypovolemia. Expand
Early cytokine response to multiple injury.
TLDR
It would seem that measurement of IL-6 and TNF alpha is not of value in directing therapeutic decisions or as a predictor of outcome. Expand
The cytokine response to critical illness.
The aims of this review are to provide a basic introduction to the biology of cytokines and to summarise the results of studies, both laboratory and clinical, relating to the cytokine response toExpand
