Knowledge, Attitude, and Practice of Emergency Medical Services Staff in Bleeding Control of Trauma Patients; a Cross sectional Study.

Conclusion: The knowledge, attitude, and practice of EMS staff regarding bleeding control were moderate, positive and appropriate, and incomplete, respectively. Since bleeding is a life threatening status and EMS staff skills are critical in this issue, it seems that we need to provide continuous education in this regard.

CONCLUSION: Nonrandomized comparison of different surgical approaches is challenging. In our experience, 3D-VATS was safe and effective and offered excellent operative perception and sensitivity, enabling safer dissection of hilar structures. The 3D-VATS system helped skilled surgeons beyond the boundaries of more oncologically aggressive surgery. PMID: 32458749 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We reported 10 ASA I –II patients admitted for elective primary THA, receiving LIA during (5) and at the end of surgery (5). For the PENG block we used a single injection of 40 ml levobupivacaine 0.25% and dexamethasone 4 mg. For LIA, a mixture of 0.25% levobupivacaine, ketorolac, epinephrine, and morphine was injec ted into periarticular tissues. The pain intensity was evaluated with a numeric rating scale. All patients were fully satisfied and improvement in pain relief, symptoms, and functional activity was remarkable. Intraoperative blood losses ranged 100–600 ml. No intraoperative complicati...

Acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is associated with high in-hospital morbidity and mortality, both via cardiorespiratory decompensation and the bleeding complications of treatment. Thrombolytic therapy can be life-saving in those with high-risk PE, but requires careful patient selection. Patients with PE and systemic arterial hypotension ( “massive PE”) should receive thrombolytic therapy unless severe contraindications are present. Patients with PE and right ventricular dysfunction/injury, but without hypotension (“submassive PE”), should be considered for thrombolysis on a case-by-case basis, conside...

Patients with hemophilia are at a high risk of developing arthropathy and so are more likely to require surgery during their lifetime; in particular, major orthopedic surgery [1]. The management of patients with hemophilia undergoing surgery has additional considerations, as they are more likely to experience excessive or prolonged bleeding and associated complications, compared with patients without hemophilia [2].

Classification of the X-linked recessive bleeding disorder Hemophilia A (HA) is based on residual Factor VIII activity level (FVIII:C) that largely correlates with bleeding severity. Understanding the underlying basis for bleeding phenotypes differing from those predicted by FVIII:C should refine classification of patients, clarify genotype-phenotype correlations, and improve clinical management of persons with HA.

Hemophilia A is a bleeding disorder due to the deficiency of coagulation factor VIII (FVIII). According to resident FVIII activity, the disease was divided into mild type (FVIII:c  > 5 IU/dL), moderate type (FVIII:c 1–5 IU/dL) and severe type (FVIII:c

Carlo Zambonin The absence of vitamin E from the diet can lead to cardiovascular disease, cancer, cataracts, and premature aging. Vitamin K deficiency can lead to bleeding disorders. These fat-soluble vitamins are important nutritional factors that can be determined in different methods in vegetables. In this work, the simultaneous determination of α-tocopherol, α-tocopheryl acetate, phylloquinone, and menaquinone-4 by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS) has been optimized using both direct injection and solid phase microextraction (SPME). Three different sample pre-t...
