BACKGROUND: Patient crowding in emergency departments (ED) is a common challenge and associated with worsened outcome for the patients. Previous studies on biomarkers in the ED setting has focused on identification of high risk patients, and and the ability to use biomarkers to identify low-risk patients has only been sparsely examined. The broader aims of the TRIAGE study are to develop methods to identify low-risk patients appropriate for early ED discharge by combining information from a wide range of new inflammatory biomarkers and vital signs, the present baseline article aims to describe the formation of the TRIAGE database and characteristize the included patients...

IMPORTANCE: Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is associated with low survival, but early cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and defibrillation can improve outcomes if more widely adopted. OBJECTIVE: To examine temporal changes in bystander and first-responder resuscitation efforts before arrival of the emergency medical services (EMS) following statewide initiatives to improve bystander and first-responder efforts in North Carolina from 2010-2013 and to examine the association between bystander and first-responder resuscitation efforts and survival and neurological outcome...

We analyzed 884 moderately severe and severe casualties evacuated by the aeromedical evacuation unit of the Israel Air Force. Of these, 452 were evacuated during the "Yom Kippur" War in 1973, and 432 during 1974-76. The aeromedical teams performed 24 rescusitations and 13 emergency operations, and provided primary medical care for 37 cases; 95% of the casualties reached the next stage of evacuation without deterioration in their medical condition. These data support our concept that the participation of a flight surgeon in aeromedical evacuation is highly valuable...
