AIM OF THE STUDY Many hospitals have basic life support (BLS) training programmes, but the effects on the quality of chest compressions are unclear. This study aimed to evaluate the no-flow fraction (NFF) during BLS provided by standard care nursing teams over a five-year observation period during which annual participation in the BLS training was(More)
BACKGROUND Basic life support (BLS) guidelines focus on chest compressions with a minimal no-flow fraction (NFF), early defibrillation, and a short perishock pause. By using an automated external defibrillator (AED) lay persons are guided through the process of attaching electrodes and initiating defibrillation. It is unclear, however, to what extent the(More)
Bilateral renal cell carcinoma is detected at an incidence rate of 1.6-6% of all renal tumors. The management, histopathological results and the long-term follow-up of 66 patients with bilateral renal cell carcinoma (29 synchronous, 37 asynchronous tumors) are presented in this issue. The incidence rate of bilateral renal cell carcinoma (RCC) at our(More)
About 10 years ago, the first human patient simulators were introduced to intensive care units (ICUs). Since then, there has been a rapid development of both technical and non-technical aspects in medical education. The aim of this review is to elaborate how simulation training is already used in the intensive care setting, the role of different types of(More)
Bilaterale Nierentumoren werden mit einer Inzidenz von 1,6–6,0% aller Nierentumoren nachgewiesen. In der vorliegenden Arbeit sollen Vorgehensweise, histologische Ergebnisse und Langzeitverläufe bei 66 Patienten mit bilateralen Nierentumoren (29 synchrone, 37 asynchrone Tumoren) dargestellt werden. Die Inzidenz der bilateralen Tumoren lag an der(More)
