BACKGROUND: Deterioration of the endothelial glycocalyx (eGC), a protective carbohydrate-rich layer lining the luminal surface of the endothelium, plays a key role in vascular barrier dysfunction and eventually organ-failure in systemic inflammatory response syndrome and sepsis. Early detection of glycocalyx damage could thus become an important goal in critical care. This study was designed to determine the feasibility and reproducibility of quantitative, real-time glycocalyx measurements performed at bedside in the emergency room (ER) and intensive care unit (ICU)...

A Trauma Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists Team (TCT) was created and trained to provide trauma-focused anesthesia and resuscitation. The purpose of this study was to examine patient outcomes after implementation of TCT. We conducted retrospective analyses of trauma patients managed with surgical intervention from March to December 2015. During the first five months, patients managed before the development of TCT were grouped No-TCT, patients managed after were grouped TCT. To assess outcomes, we used hospital and intensive care unit length of stay, ventilator days, and a validated 10-point intraoperative Apgar score (IOAS)...

BACKGROUND: Early bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for cardiac arrest is crucial in the chain of survival. Cardiac arrest in infants is rare but CPR is also performed in severe bradycardia. The European Resuscitation Council (ERC) and American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines recommend starting CPR and continuing it until the heart muscle is sufficiently oxygenated and regains sufficient contractility and function. Among the techniques of CPR that can be applied in newborns, the most common and therefore recommended by the ERC and AHA are the two-finger technique and two-thumb technique...

Mask ventilation and coughing during oro-tracheal suctioning produce aerosols that enhance nosocomial transmission of respiratory infections. We examined the extent of exhaled air dispersion from a human-patient-simulator during mask ventilation by different groups of healthcare workers and coughing bouts. The simulator was programmed to mimic varying severity of lung injury. Exhaled airflow was marked with tiny smoke particles, and highlighted by laser light-sheet. We determined the normalized exhaled air concentration in the leakage jet plume from the light scattered by smoke particles...
