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)

Introduction: Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is an unusual mechanical complication of myocardial infarction (MI) in the era of reperfusion therapy, but the mortality rate of patients who present with cardiogenic shock (CS) remains extremely high. Whereas current American and European guidelines recommend urgent surgical repair regardless of hemodynamic(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Aortic injuries are rare and associated with high early mortality challenging the surgical services both from a technical as well as organisational point of view, especially in countries with low incidence of trauma. A Finnish experience in the management of aortic injuries is reported with special emphasis on outcome after early(More)
BACKGROUND Point-of-care (POC) testing is highly useful when treating critically ill patients. In case of difficult vascular access, the intraosseous (IO) route is commonly used, and blood is aspirated to confirm the correct position of the IO-needle. Thus, IO blood samples could be easily accessed for POC analyses in emergency situations. The aim of this(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM We hypothesised that the use of 50% compared to 100% oxygen maintains cerebral oxygenation and ameliorates the disturbance of cardiac mitochondrial respiration during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). METHODS Ventricular fibrillation (VF) was induced electrically in anaesthetised healthy adult pigs and left untreated for seven(More)
