Purpose of reviewThis review will analyze and comment on selected recent literature pertaining to airway management and initial fluid resuscitation in the trauma patient. It will also review airway devices currently being used in the trauma setting. Recent findingsAlthough a recent study has questioned the efficacy of manual inline immobilization, this technique continues to be endorsed by trauma guidelines and is safely used in most trauma centers. Clinicians have also incorporated the use of… Expand
Anesthesia for Patients with Extensive Trauma.
TLDR
This article provides a review of the anesthetic management for patients with extensive trauma, focusing on physiology, pharmacology, and bedside management. Expand
Resuscitation of a polytraumatized patient with large volume crystalloid-colloid infusions--correlation between global and regional hemodynamics: case report.
TLDR
A 24-year-old man with multiple injuries resuscitated with large volume infusions and monitored by transpulmonary thermodilution technique and gastric tonometry to monitor regional hemodynamics that enables clinician to maintain the required relations between global and regional hemodynamic relations. Expand
Trauma Anesthesia
A lmost one out of every 10 deaths in the world is the result of injury. In the United States, trauma is the leading cause of death among children, adolescents, and young adults, and accounts forExpand
Treatment of haemorrhagic shock: a case report
TLDR
During extensive and long-lasting mutilating operations it is necessary to use an aggressive volume replacing approach to maintain adequate tissue oxygenation to uphold the function and structure of cells, tissue and organs. Expand
Correspondence: Use of a Venner A.P. Advance videolaryngoscope in a patient with potential cervical spine injury
TLDR
Self-assembled three-way stopcock-based ventilation devices should not be recommended as better options are available and any pressure build-up during the expiratory phase can be completely avoided, according to Difficult Airway Society guidance. Expand
Pathophysiology and management of different types of shock
TLDR
With a contemporary understanding of the disease and new evolving technology, the emergency physician can recognize shock at an earlier stage and initiate expert, timely intervention. Expand
Keeping patent airways.
TLDR
Endotracheal intubation remains the most effective measure to ensure a patent airway, but it takes experience to perform the procedure, and the bag-valve-mask device can be used, which is much more efficiently performed with two operators. Expand
Principles of Intravenous Fluids Therapy
Introduction: The hospital ED is one of the most important components of the health care system. There is an increase in numbers of hypovolemic patients visiting EDs leading to overcrowding, longExpand
Correspondence: The anaesthetist and the environment
TLDR
The APA videolaryngoscope offers users a familiar technique and in this case provided good laryngeal views and facilitated rapid but gentle intubation when performed by a practitioner new to its clinical use. Expand

Preoperative resuscitation of the trauma patient
TLDR
Owing to the growing societal threat of trauma, further research will be critical to delineate the timing and technique of infusing advantageous resuscitative fluids such as hypertonic saline and hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers as well as the use of hemostatic agents and special blood products. Expand
Transfusion Management of Trauma Patients
TLDR
MTPs are a key element of “damage control resuscitation,” which is defined as the systematic approach to major trauma that addresses the lethal triad mentioned above and using adequate volumes of plasma, and thus coagulation factors, improve patient outcome. Expand
Airway Management in Adults after Cervical Spine Trauma
TLDR
There are no outcome data that would support a recommendation for a particular practice option for airway management, but a number of options seem appropriate and acceptable. Expand
Damage control resuscitation for vascular surgery in a combat support hospital.
TLDR
Aggressive damage control resuscitation maneuvers in critically injured casualties successfully permitted prolonged, complex extremity revascularization with excellent early limb salvage and graft patency. Expand
HYPERTONIC RESUSCITATION OF HYPOVOLEMIC SHOCK AFTER BLUNT TRAUMA: A RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
TLDR
Although no significant difference in ARDS-free survival was demonstrated overall, there was benefit in the subgroup of patients requiring 10 U or more of packed red blood cells in the first 24 hours, suggesting Massive transfusion may be a better predictor of ARDS than prehospital hypotension. Expand
Fresh frozen plasma should be given earlier to patients requiring massive transfusion.
TLDR
These data indicate acidosis and hypothermia to be well managed and suggest more aggressive pre-ICU intervention to correct coagulopathy may be effective in decreasing PRBC requirement during ICU resuscitation, and could improve outcome. Expand
Early use of vasopressors after injury: caution before constriction.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that the early use of vasopressors for hemodynamic support after hemorrhagic shock may be deleterious, and should be used cautiously and not in place of aggressive crystalloid resuscitation after severe blunt injury. Expand
Prehospital hypertonic saline resuscitation of patients with hypotension and severe traumatic brain injury: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
In this study, patients with hypotension and severe TBI who received prehospital resuscitation with HTS had almost identical neurological function 6 months after injury as patients who received conventional fluid. Expand

TLDR
This document updates the “Practice Guidelines for Management of the Difficult Airway: An Updated Report by”, which provides basic recommendations that are supported by a synthesis and analysis of the current literature, expert and practitioner opinion, open-forum commentary, and clinical feasibility data.

Definitive establishment of airway control is critical for optimal outcome in lower cervical spinal cord injury.
TLDR
Data indicate that regardless of severity of low cervical SCI, immediate, thorough evaluation for respiratory failure is necessary and early intubation is mandatory for CSCI patients. Expand
