UNLABELLED STUDY OBJECTIVE AND BACKGROUND: Arterial puncture for blood gas analysis is a frequent procedure and could be difficult in the emergency setting. The aim of the study was to compare ultrasonographically guided arterial radial puncture vs conventional sampling. MATERIALS AND METHODS This is a prospective, randomized study. The inclusion criteria(More)
Importance An international task force recently redefined the concept of sepsis. This task force recommended the use of the quick Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (qSOFA) score instead of systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) criteria to identify patients at high risk of mortality. However, these new criteria have not been prospectively(More)
This report describes the case of an 18-year-old woman who was found in the sea suffering from cardiac arrest and hypothermia, 90 minutes after she entered the water to swim. The rescue team used an automated external defibrillator to record prehospital management. This recording showed an isoelectric electrocardiogram followed by a ventricular(More)
We read with interest the article by Martin‐Loeches et al. entitled “Determinants of time to death in hospital in critically ill patients around the world” [1]. In this article, the authors aimed to investigate which factors influence time to death in hospital in critically ill patients worldwide. They found that time to death in hospital is longer in older(More)
BACKGROUND Peripheral venous (PV) cannulation, one of the most common technical procedures in Emergency Medicine, may prove challenging, even to experienced Emergency Department (ED) staff. Morbid obesity (body mass index [BMI] ≥ 40) has been reported as a risk factor for PV access failure in the operating room. OBJECTIVES We investigated PV access(More)
The role of cardiac biomarkers in risk stratification of syncope is unclear. We undertook a systematic review to assess their predictive value for short-term major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE). We conducted a systematic review using MEDLINE, EMBASE, DARE and Cochrane databases from inception to July 2014. We included studies involving adult syncope(More)
BACKGROUND The RAD-57 pulse CO-oximeter is a lightweight device allowing noninvasive measurement of blood carboxyhemoglobin (S(pCO)). We assessed the diagnostic value of pulse CO-oximetry, comparing S(pCO) values from the RAD-57 to standard laboratory blood carboxyhemoglobin (COHb) measurement in emergency department patients with suspected carbon monoxide(More)
BACKGROUND When medical wards become saturated, the common practice is to resort to outlying patients in another ward until a bed becomes free. OBJECTIVES Compare the quality of care provided for inpatients who are outlying (O) in inappropriate wards because of lack of vacant beds in appropriate specialty wards to the care given to non outlying (NO)(More)
INTRODUCTION The use of focused cardiac ultrasound (FoCUS) in a prehospital setting is recommended. Pocket ultrasound devices (PUDs) appear to be well suited to prehospital FoCUS. The main aim of our study was to evaluate the interpretability of echocardiography performed in a prehospital setting using a PUD based on the experience of the emergency(More)
