AIM Supraglottic devices are thought to allow efficient ventilation and continuous chest compressions during cardiac arrest. Therefore, the use of supraglottic devices could increase the chest compression fraction (CCF), a critical determinant of patient survival. The aim of this study was to assess the CCF in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients(More)
Interest in high-dose baclofen treatment for alcohol dependence has increased over the past few years. In the meantime, the rate of acute baclofen poisoning has increased and life-threatening cases have been reported. Thus, severity of acute poisoning could lessen the benefit of baclofen treatment. Our aim was to evaluate the severity of acute baclofen(More)
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is independently linked to cardiometabolic morbidity and mortality. Low-grade inflammation, oxidative stress and ectopic fat, common features of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), might contribute to the development of NAFLD.We aimed to investigate the prevalence of NAFLD and to evaluate the relationship(More)
BACKGROUND Ultrasonography - assisted lumbar puncture helps physicians identify traditional anatomical landmarks. However, it could help to overcome the anatomical dogmas and thus identify the best interspinous space under the medullary cone. METHODS Traditional anatomical landmarks were reported on a tracing paper in patients with an indication for(More)
BACKGROUND Variations in the activity of emergency dispatch centers are an obstacle to the rationalization of resource allocation. Many explanatory factors are well known, available in advance and could predict the volume of emergency cases. Our objective was to develop and evaluate the performance of a predictive model of daily call center activity. (More)
AIM Evaluation of team performances during medical simulation must rely on validated and reproducible tools. Our aim was to build and validate a French version of the Team Emergency Assessment Measure (TEAM) score, which was developed for the assessment of team performance and non-technical skills during resuscitation. METHODS A forward and backward(More)
BACKGROUND Blood potassium is the main prognostic biomarker used for triage in hypothermic cardiac arrest. The aim of this review was to assess the impact of hypothermia on blood potassium levels and compare the underlying pathophysiological theories. METHODS The Medline electronic database was searched via PubMed for articles published from January 1970(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE We study the performance of capnometry in the detection of early complications after deliberate drug poisoning. METHODS This was a prospective cohort study of self-poisoned adult patients who presented at an emergency department (ED) between April 20, 2012, and May 6, 2014. Patients who ingested at least 1 neurologic or respiratory(More)
AIM Intense physical activity, cold and altitude make mountain sports a cause of increased risk of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). The difficulties of pre-hospital management related to this challenging environment could be mitigated by the presence of ski-patrollers in ski areas and use of helicopters for medical rescue. We assess whether this(More)
