Clinical Characteristics of Patients Undergoing Needle Thoracostomy in a Canadian Helicopter Emergency Medical Service
This study's objective was to identify the characteristics of patients treated with NT in a Canadian HEMS setting and the factors that may influence outcomes following NT use.METHODS: This was a retrospective chart review of prehospital records from a Canadian HEMS service. Patients aged 18 years and older who underwent at least one NT attempt using a 14-gauge 8.3 cm needle from 2012 to 2018 were identified. Charts were reviewed to collect demographic data, NT procedural characteristics, vital signs, and clinical response metrics. Descriptive statistics were used to characterize the study sample and overall event character...

SARS-CoV-2 IgG Seropositivity and Acute Asymptomatic Infection Rate Among Firefighter First Responders in an Early Outbreak County in California
Conclusion: In a county with one of the earliest outbreaks in the United States, the seroprevalence among firefighter first responders was lower than that reported by other studies of frontline health care workers, while the cumulative incidence remained higher than that seen in the surrounding community.PMID:33819128 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2021.1912227 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)

The EMS Modified Early Warning Score (EMEWS): A simple count of vital signs as a predictor of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests
ConclusionsEMEWS showed a similar ability to predict EMS-witnessed cardiac arrest compared to MEWS-T, despite being significantly simpler to compute. Further study is needed to evaluate whether the implementation of EMEWS can aid EMS clinicians in anticipating and preventing OHCA.PMID:33794729 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2021.1908464 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)

Community Variations in Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Care and Outcomes in Texas
ConclusionWhile overall OHCA care and outcomes were similar in Texas compared to national averages, bystander CPR, bystander AED use, and survival varied widely across communities in Texas. These variations signal opportunities to improve OHCA care and outcomes in Texas.PMID:33779479 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2021.1907007 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)

Assessment of cardiometabolic health, diet and physical activity in helicopter rescue paramedics
Conclusions: For ICFPs included in this study, HRQoL, cardiometabolic and physical activity outcomes are representative of good health. Although shift work influences the amount of physical activity, ICFPs exceeded minimum recommendations even when rostered to duty. Despite lengthy careers in EMS, ICFPs demonstrate an excellent health profile that is likely due to high physical activity levels and healthy BMI. This information may be useful in guiding health interventions in the wider EMS workforce.PMID:33760682 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2021.1907492 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)

An analysis of 13 years of prehospital combat casualty care - implications for maintaining a ready medical force
Conclusions: Within our dataset, the deployed U.S. military medical system provided prehospital medical care to at least 28950 combat casualties consisting mostly of U.S. military personnel and host nation civilian care.

Conclusion: Prehospital administration of the C-STAT was feasible, using a model of minimal paramedic training and real-time telephone guidance.

Prehosp Emerg Care. 2021 Mar 9:1-7. doi: 10.1080/10903127.2021.1900474. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of a Mobile Integrated Hospice Healthcare (MIHH) program including hospice education and expansion of paramedic scope of practice to use hospice medication kits. Primary outcome was the effect on hospice patient transport to the Emergency Department. Secondary outcomes included reasons for patient transport and review of MIHH kit utilization.METHODS: In 2015, the project was implemented in Ventura County, California in collaboration with county emergency medical services (EMS) agency, firs...

Prospective Evaluation of a Two-Scale Protocol for Prehospital Large Vessel Occlusion Detection
Conclusion: Prehospital administration of the C-STAT was feasible, using a model of minimal paramedic training and real-time telephone guidance. A protocol based on both a CPSS 3/3 and a positive C-STAT would decrease CSC redirected patient volume by one-third but would miss one-quarter of LVO strokes when compared to a CPSS-based protocol.PMID:33689555 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2021.1901164 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)
