Pharmacokinetics of tranexamic acid (TXA) delivered by expeditious routes in a swine model of polytrauma and hemorrhagic shock
CONCLUSIONS: In austere prehospital environments, an alternative to intravenous infusion of a life-saving medication is desired. Administration of TXA via all three methods reached the level needed to cause substantial inhibition of fibrinolysis within 10 minutes. The IV push method showed similar pharmacokinetics to IV infusion of TXA but can be delivered quickly without sacrificing an access site for 10 minutes.PMID:38634701 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2024.2342025 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)

Dispatch Categories as Indicators of Out-of-Hospital Time Critical Interventions and Associated Emergency Department Outcomes
CONCLUSIONS: In general, Determinant levels aligned with time-critical responses; however, a notable minority of lower acuity Determinant level Protocols met criteria for unsafe to hold. This suggests a more nuanced approach to dispatch prioritization, considering both Protocol and Determinant level factors.PMID:38626286 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2024.2342015 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)

Safety and adverse events during primary care paramedic interfacility transfer of stable STEMI patients
CONCLUSIONS: We found PCP-interfacility transport of initially stable STEMI patients was safe and associated with a moderate proportion of adverse events, the majority of which did not require an advanced care intervention. These findings may help decision-making to avoid delays transferring stable patients to PCI-capable centers.PMID:38619868 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2024.2342569 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)

Emergency Medical Service Attendances for Adults with Repeat Falls in Western Australia: A State-Wide Retrospective Cohort Study
CONCLUSION: Nearly 30% of all patients attended by EMS for a fall, sustained repeat falls, which collectively accounted for nearly 60% of all EMS-attendances to fall-related incidents. Further exploration of the role EMS clinicians play in identifying and referring patients who sustain repeat falls into alternative pathways is needed.PMID:38588441 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2024.2338915 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)
