OBJECTIVE: Ketamine use in emergency departments (EDs) for procedural sedation and analgesia is becoming increasingly common. However, few studies have examined patient factors related to adverse events associated with ketamine. This study investigated factors for consideration when using ketamine to sedate pediatric ED patients. METHODS: The study included pediatric patients receiving ketamine for laceration repair in the ED. Before sedation, information was collected about upper respiratory tract infection symptoms, allergy history, and fasting time...

Four tungsten oxide (TO)-based catalysts, (1) TO (without any organic moiety), (2) TO-TMA, (3) TO-TPA, and (4) TO-TBA (TMA: tetramethylammonium, TPA: tetrapropylammonium, and TBA: tetrabutylammonium cations) were straightforwardly prepared via a mild hydrothermal approach, based on oxidative dissolution of tungsten bare powder, followed by a facile encapsulation of the tetraalkylammonium cations (NR4+). The significant impact of the NR4+ cations on crystallization of the amorphous and metastable peroxotungstic species, formed during the synthesis, has been discussed through different characterization techniques including XRD, FTIR, TGA and DTG, TEM, EDS, N2 adsorption/desorption isotherms, zeta potential measurement, and elemental analysis...

OBJECTIVES: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is commonly seen in the emergency department (ED). Approximately 85%-90% of TBIs are mild (mTBI). Some cause symptoms such as headache, dizziness, anxiety, blurred vision, insomnia and concentration difficulties, collectively known as postconcussion syndrome (PCS). Some studies suggest that recovery from mTBI is complete. Others find that symptoms persist for months, even years. The aim of this study was to describe the use of general practice, before and after mTBI, as a proxy for symptoms in a large cohort...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: While development is under way of accurate, point-of-care molecular tests for influenza infection, the optimal specimen type for molecular tests remains unclear. Compared with standard nasopharyngeal swab specimens, less invasive nasal swab and midturbinate swab specimens may cause less patient discomfort and be more suitable for routine emergency department (ED) testing, although possibly at the expense of diagnostic accuracy. We compare both the accuracy of a polymerase chain reaction molecular influenza test and discomfort between these 3 intranasal specimen types...

Gunshot residues (GSR) are important physical evidence in firearm-related crimes. Recently developed non-toxic ammunition, however, requires a new methodology for its characterization. To overcome this drawback, the introduction of noncommercial luminescent markers in ammunition was proposed. These markers, synthesized and added to the gunpowder, presented as a versatile tool for GSR analysis, since they require UV radiation alone to visualize the luminescent GSR (LGSR). This has opened up new perspectives for understanding GSR behavior at a crime scene...
