BACKGROUND To assess, whether arterial blood gas measurements during trauma patient's pre-hospital shock resuscitation yield useful information on haemodynamic response to fluid resuscitation by comparing haemodynamic and blood gas variables in patients undergoing two different fluid resuscitation regimens. METHODS In a prospective randomised study of 37(More)

METHODS Ventricular fibrillation (VF) was induced electrically in anaesthetised healthy adult pigs and left untreated for seven(More)
A1 Measuring the effectiveness of a novel CPRcard feedback device during simulated chest compressions by non-healthcare workers Background We aimed to see if a novel credit card size cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) feedback device helped to improve the quality of chest compressions by lay participants compared to compressions done without feedback.(More)
