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. Expand
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
Criteria for withholding resuscitation efforts in victims of penetrating or blunt trauma with injuries obviously incompatible with life, such as decapitation or hemicorporectomy are presented. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Risk factors for cervical spine injury.
Pelvic fracture and fall and pelvic fracture and head injury, had a greater than multiplicative interaction and high risk for cervical spine injury, warranting increased vigilance in the evaluation of patients with this combination of injuries. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Tactical combat casualty care 2007: evolving concepts and battlefield experience.
The Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) project begun by the Naval Special Warfare Command and continued by the U.S. Special Operations Command developed a set of tactically appropriate battlefieldExpand
