N Golob, D Grenc, M Brvar
Background: Carbon monoxide is the leading cause of mortality from unintentional poisoning in Slovenia. It has been shown that carbon monoxide levels can rise in wood pellet storerooms because of chemical degradation of pellets, even at room temperature. We present a case of lethal carbon monoxide poisoning with first responder carbon monoxide exposure. Aims: To highlight the dangers rescuers face during interventions in pellet storerooms and the need for preventive precautions...

The role of oxidative stress has been well documented in the development of sepsis-induced acute lung injury (ALI). Protein interaction with C-kinase 1 (PICK1) participates in oxidative stress-related neuronal diseases. However, its function in lung infections and inflammatory diseases is not known. We therefore sought to investigate whether PICK1 is involved in sepsis-induced ALI. Cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) was performed in anesthetized wild type (WT) and PICK1 knock out (KO, PICK1-/- ) mice with C57BL/6 background...

Hemorrhagic shock (HS) is associated with low blood pressure due to excessive loss of circulating blood and causes both macrocirculatory and microcirculatory dysfunction. Fluid resuscitation after HS is used in the clinic to restore tissue perfusion. The persistent microcirculatory damage caused by HS and/or resuscitation can result in multiple organ damage, with the kidney being one of the involved organs. The kidney microvasculature consists of different segments that possess a remarkable heterogeneity in functional properties...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Hemorrhage remains the primary cause of preventable death on the battlefield and in civilian trauma. Hemorrhage control is multifactorial and starts with point-of-injury care. Surgical hemorrhage control and time from injury to surgery is paramount; however, interventions in the prehospital environment and perioperative period affect outcomes. The purpose of this review is to understand concepts and strategies for successful management of the bleeding military patient...

BACKGROUND: Patients in cardiac arrest must receive algorithm-based management such as basic life support and advanced (cardiac) life support. International guidelines dictate diagnosing and treating any factor that may have caused the arrest or may be complicating the resuscitation. Ultrasound may be of potential value in this process and can be used in a prehospital setting. The objective is to evaluate the use of prehospital ultrasound during traumatic and non-traumatic CPR and determine its impact on prehospital treatment decisions in a Dutch helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS)...

BACKGROUND: The early detection of clinical deterioration and the prompt escalation of care is important but may be limited in the general ward, especially at night. Identifying variations among working shifts in the number of unscheduled in-hospital intensive care unit (ICU) transfers and emergent transfers with life-threatening conditions may help implement targeted interventions to reduce delayed transfers and improve patient safety and outcomes. METHODS: All unscheduled ICU transfers in a tertiary children's hospital, from January 2013 to December 2016, were reviewed retrospectively...

Hypotension, cardiac depression, and elevated microvascular permeability are known problems that complicate resuscitation of patients following traumatic injury, particularly those who are also intoxicated from alcohol consumption. A conscious rat model of combined alcohol intoxication and hemorrhagic shock has been used to study the hemodynamic mechanisms involved. Here, we describe using this model to study microvascular leakage and cardiac electrical activity.

Vascular hyperpermeability is one of the known detrimental effects of hemorrhagic shock, which we continually try to understand, minimize, and reverse. Here, we describe induction of hemorrhagic shock in a rat and studying of its effects on vascular permeability, using intravital microscopy. In this protocol, hemorrhagic shock will be induced by withdrawing blood to reduce the mean arterial pressure (MAP) to 40 mmHg for 60 min followed by resuscitation for 60 min. To study the changes in vascular permeability following hemorrhagic shock, the rats will be given FITC-albumin, a fluorescent tracer, intravenously...

The majority of resuscitated patients present with underlying cardiac disease, and out of these myocardial infarction is most common. Immediate interventional treatment is recommended and routinely requires dual antiplatelet therapy including aspirin and a P2Y12-inhibitor. Therapeutic hypothermia or target temperature management is also recommended in these patients. Cardiogenic shock as well as reduced body temperature impacts platelet reactivity and its medical inhibition. The study aims to quantify aspirin- and P2Y12-mediated platelet inhibition in patients presenting with myocardial infarction and cardiopulmonary resuscitation...

BACKGROUND: In critical patients, left ventricular ejection fraction and fractional shortening are used to reflect left ventricular systolic function. An emerging technique, two-dimensional-strain echocardiography, allows assessment of the left ventricle systolic longitudinal deformation (global longitudinal strain) and the speed at which this deformation occurs (systolic strain rate). This technique is of increasing use in critical patients in intensive care units and in the peri-operative period where preload constantly varies...

Previous studies have demonstrated that cholecystokinin octapeptide (CCK8) induces hypothermia and inhibits the systemic inflammatory response in septic shock in rat and murine models. The present study aimed to ascertain whether CCK8 induced hypothermia and improved the neurological outcomes in a porcine model of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Ventricular fibrillation was induced and left untreated for 10 min in 12 male Bama miniature pigs. Defibrillation was attempted after 5 min of CPR. At 5 min following resuscitation, the pigs were randomized and equally assigned into the CCK8 or the control group...

Fluid resuscitation was used on aged patients with traumatic shock in their early postoperative recovery. The present study aimed to assess whether different fluid resuscitation strategies had an influence on aged patients with traumatic shock.A total of 219 patients with traumatic shock were recruited retrospectively. Lactated Ringer and hydroxyethyl starch solution were transfused for fluid resuscitation before definite hemorrhagic surgery. Subjects were divided into 3 groups: group A: 72 patients were given aggressive fluid infusion at 20 to 30 mL/min to restore normal mean arterial pressure (MAP) of 65 to 75 mm Hg...

The intensive care service (ICS) saves lives and rescues the neurological function of stroke patients. We wondered the different utilization of ICS for patients with ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, especially those who died within 30 days after stroke.Sixty-seven patients died during 2011 to 2015 due to acute stroke (42 due to intracranial hemorrhage [ICH]; 25 due to cerebral infarct [CI]). The durations of hospital stay (hospital staying days [HSDs]) and ICS staying days (ISDs) and codes of the do-not-resuscitate (DNR) were surveyed among these medical records...

Gamification involves the application of game design elements to traditionally non-game contexts. It is increasingly being used as an adjunct to traditional teaching strategies in medical education to engage the millennial learner and enhance adult learning. The extant literature has focused on determining whether the implementation of gamification results in better learning outcomes, leading to a dearth of research examining its theoretical underpinnings within the medical education context. The authors define gamification, explore how gamification works within the medical education context using self-determination theory as an explanatory mechanism for enhanced engagement and motivation, and discuss common roadblocks and challenges to implementing gamification...
