Damage control resuscitation: the new face of damage control.
This research highlights the need to understand more fully the role of emotion in the development of learning and the importance of positive emotions in the preparation of students for exams.
An Evidence-based Prehospital Guideline for External Hemorrhage Control: American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma
The development of an evidence-based guideline for external hemorrhage control in the prehospital setting is described and a clinical care guideline is proposed for adoption by EMS systems.
Review of current blood transfusions strategies in a mature level I trauma center: were we wrong for the last 60 years?
An FFP to PRBC ratio close to 1:1 confers a survival advantage in patients requiring massive transfusion, and univariate and multivariate analysis were used to assess the relationship between outcome and predictors.
Damage control resuscitation in combination with damage control laparotomy: a survival advantage.
DCL and DCR were associated with a survival advantage and shorter trauma intensive care unit length of stay in patients with severe hemorrhage when compared with DCL and CRE.
Guidelines for withholding or termination of resuscitation in prehospital traumatic cardiopulmonary arrest: joint position statement of the National Association of EMS Physicians and the American…
Increased platelet:RBC ratios are associated with improved survival after massive transfusion.
Transfusion of platelet:RBC ratios of 1:1 was associated with improved early and late survival, decreased hemorrhagic death and a concomitant increase in multiple organ failure-related mortality.
Risk factors for cervical spine injury.
Hemostatic resuscitation during surgery improves survival in patients with traumatic-induced coagulopathy.
Early hemostatic resuscitation during first hours after injury improves survival with shorter TICU LOS in patients with TIC, and the impact of the early FFP:PRBC ratio on mortality is evaluated.
A multi-institutional analysis of prehospital tourniquet use
This study is the largest evaluation of prehospital tourniquet use in a civilian population to date and found that tournique was applied safely and effectively in the civilian population.
