RDT to Showcase New Approach to Monitoring Defibrillation at Arab Health

RDT, a leading provider of pre-hospital care solutions, will be previewing its Tempus ALS monitor defibrillator at Arab Health 2017. Visitors to Stand Z1A59 will be able to see this innovative solution – which offers the benefits of a fully ERC-compliant defibrillator and an advanced monitor in a small and lightweight package – ahead of its official launch later in the year. Tempus ALS delivers a new, cutting-edge approach to monitoring defibrillation. Its market-leading robustness, small size, low weight and flexible configuration provide unparalleled choices on how pre-hospital equipment is deployed and operated. The advanced monitor provides a full set of vitals – including 12-Lead ECG, configurable STEMI reporting and capnography – with over 10 hours of battery life. It also gives access to advanced features such as video laryngoscopy, point of injury ultrasound and real-time telemedicine. The defibrillator is lighter and smaller than most AEDs, but with manual defibrillation, AED, cardioversion, pacing, CPR feedback and a 4-Lead ECG. Its small battery is capable of delivering 300 shocks, so users can stop worrying about battery life. Because it is small and light enough to always be carried to scene, it also means code review is always available for every incident. Additionally, Tempus ALS provides market-leading collection of all vitals data, defibrillation and CPR therapies, event and pictures via its automatically populated Summary Record of Ca...

AbstractIntroductionTranscutaneous laryngeal ultrasound (TLUSG) is an innovative, non-invasive tool in detecting post-thyroidectomy vocal cord palsy (VCP). However, TLUSG failed to detect about 6 –15% laryngoscopic examination (LE)-confirmed VCP. It is unclear whether the outcome of patients with VCP missed by TLUSG [false negative (FN)] is different from those with VCP diagnosed by TLUSG [true positive (TP)]. Therefore, this study aimed to compare the clinical outcome and prognosis betwee n patients with FN results and TP results.MethodsOver 46  months, all consecutive patients undergoing thyroidectomy or endoc...

ConclusionAlthough direct laryngoscopy remains the standard of care in evaluation of laryngo-hypopharyngeal lesions, this pilot study has shown that ultrasound-guided transcutaneous fine needle aspiration cytology was feasible as an out-patient procedure, employing safe and sensitive technique enabling rapid diagnosis and avoiding the need for direct laryngoscopy under GA for tissue diagnosis.ResumoIntroduçãoAs lesões laríngeas são geralmente avaliadas por microlaringoscopia/laringoscopia direta sob anestesia para mapeamento da doença e diagnóstico tecidual. No entanto, em p...

Authors: Penović S, Roje Ž, Brdar D, Gračan S, Bubić A, Vela J, Punda A Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between globus pharyngeus and laryngopharyngeal reflux, as well as between globus and thyroid volume. A two-year prospective study included 56 patients aged 18-75 with globus symptom. Anthropometric, clinical and laboratory data were collected. All patients filled-out the Glasgow Edinburgh Throat Scale (GETS) and then underwent thyroid ultrasound. Morphological changes of the larynx were detected by direct laryngoscopy and classified by the Reflux Finding Score (RFS). If RFS...
