1. A new clinical score for cranial computed tomography in emergency department non-trauma patients: Definition and first validation

A new clinical score for cranial computed tomography in emergency department non-trauma patients: Definition and first validation Well recognized guidelines are available for the use of cranial computed tomography (CCT) in traumatic patients, while no definitely accepted standards exists to for CCT in patients without history of head injury. The aim of this study is to propose an easy clinical score to stratify the need of CCT in emergency department (ED) patients with suspect non-traumatic

Hypertonic saline as effective as normal saline for trauma patients Hypertonic saline as effective as normal saline for trauma patients Discover Portal Discover Portal Hypertonic saline as effective as normal saline for trauma patients Published on 13 March 2018 doi: Solutions more concentrated than normal, such as hypertonic saline, are as good as those more usually given to trauma patients with severe blood loss. Survival to hospital discharge was the same in patients treated before arrival (...) at the hospital with either type of fluid. There are around 20,000 cases of major trauma per year in England. Outcomes for patients have improved in the UK over the last 25 years, but as there is still room for improvement this review sought to find evidence that supported or challenged the convention that normal saline is always best. Hypertonic solutions are given to patients in a lower volume, and so can be carried in more compact packaging. They could be preferred for transportation by emergency services

6. Drugs that stimulate bone marrow might save lives in critically ill trauma patients

Drugs that stimulate bone marrow might save lives in critically ill trauma patients Drugs that stimulate bone marrow might save lives in critically ill trauma patients Discover Portal Discover Portal Drugs that stimulate bone marrow might save lives in critically ill trauma patients Published on 23 August 2016 doi: Erythropoiesis stimulating agents (ESAs) might improve survival of critically ill patients after trauma. These drugs are synthetic versions of erythropoietin, a natural hormone (...) produced by the kidneys. They boost production of red blood cells from the bone marrow; however the survival effect seems to be independent of the effect on red cell production. ESA’s are already commonly used to treat anaemia associated with chronic kidney disease. This systematic review of trials in critical trauma patients found the survival benefit occurred without an increase in adverse effects, such as blood clots in the leg veins. ESA’s had no effect on the chance of making a good recovery after

Although such X-rays have a low individual cost, they carry a high systems-level cost due to the volume of tests ordered. As such, a good clinical decision rule with high sensitivity to rule out C-spine injuries was much needed. Prior to the development of the CCR, the NEXUS criteria

10. Evaluation and comparison of different prehospital triage scores of trauma patients on in-hospital mortality

Evaluation and comparison of different prehospital triage scores of trauma patients on in-hospital mortality Several prehospital major trauma patient triage scores have been developed, the triage revised trauma score (T-RTS), Vittel criteria, Mechanism/Glasgow Coma Scale/Age/Systolic blood pressure score (MGAP) and the new trauma score (NTS). These scoring schema allow a rapid and accurate prognostic assessment of the severity of potential lesions. The aim of our study was to compare (...) these scores with in-hospital mortality predictions in a cohort of consecutive trauma patients admitted in a Level 1 trauma center.Between 2013 and 2016, 1,112 patients were admitted to the "major trauma" spinneret of a Level 1 trauma center in the south of France. All prehospital data needed to calculate the T-RTS, Vittel criteria, the MGAP score and the NTS were collected. The main evaluation criterion was in-hospital mortality at 30 days for all causes. The predictive performances of these scores were
