Understanding the Role of Empathy and Gender on EMS Clinician Occupational Stress and Mental Health Outcomes
Conclusion: EMS clinicians, much like other first responders, experience considerable occupational stress, of which is associated with mental health difficulties and burnout. Findings underscore the need for intervention programs aimed at reducing the impact of occupational stress and the promotion of resilience. Continuing to understand the full scope of EMS mental health, including the role of resilience, is imperative, particularly in light of future public emergencies.PMID:38359401 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2024.2319139 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)

A National Assessment of EMS Performance at the Response and Agency Level
CONCLUSION: There is a wide range of performance in key EMS quality measures across the United States that demonstrate a need to identify strategies to improve quality and equity of care in the prehospital environment, system performance and data collection.PMID:38347669 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2023.2283886 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)

Ambulance traffic crashes in Japan: Characteristics of casualties, and efforts to improve ambulance safety
CONCLUSION: Two-thirds of fire departments experienced at least one crash during the study period. The majority of rear cabin occupants who were injured in ambulance crashes were not wearing a seatbelt. Although efforts to ascertain seatbelt compliance were limited, Japanese fire departments have attempted a variety of methods to reduce ambulance crashes including internal emergency vehicle operation training, which was associated with fewer ambulance crashes.PMID:38345309 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2024.2315946 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)

The Female Emergency Medical Services Experience: A Mixed Methods Study
CONCLUSIONS: Findings highlight the need to improve the occupational experiences of female EMS clinicians to preserve and encourage the continuation of their participation in this workforce. Specifically tailored interventions aimed at protecting and improving their overall wellbeing are critical, particularly considering the increased occupational burden resulting from the pandemic. Future research should aim to understand specific predictors of adverse mental health outcomes among this population.PMID:38266147 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2024.2306248 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)

Prehospital Use of Waveform Capnography in Intubated Neonates
CONCLUSION: Continuous ETCO2 monitoring is underutilized in intubated neonates compared to children, adolescents, and adults in the prehospital setting in this study population. This suggests a gap in the standard of care provided to neonates. Additional studies are needed to determine if these results are consistent around the industry and if there is a higher rate of undetected tube displacement in neonates who are transported without waveform capnography.PMID:38261425 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2024.2309214 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)

Prehospital Blood Transfusion: A Cross-Sectional Study of Prehospital and Retrieval Medicine Services across Australia & amp; Aotearoa-New Zealand
CONCLUSION: Approximately two-thirds of prehospital services operating advanced teams across Australia and Aotearoa-New Zealand carried blood products and there was wide variation both in the type and number of blood products carried by each base. Multiple barriers to the carriage of blood by all bases were reported, which have implications for service equity. Transfer times are generally long in Australia and Aotearoa-New Zealand, which may impact the generalizability of overseas research performed in prehospital systems with significantly shorter transfer times to services operating in Australia and Aotearoa-New Zealand....

Rural EMS STEMI Patients - Why the Delay to PCI?
CONCLUSION: Nearly 40% of rural STEMI patients transported by EMS failed to receive FMC to PCI within 90 min. Women were less likely than men to receive reperfusion within the time goal, which represents an important health care disparity.PMID:38235978 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2024.2305967 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)

Evidence-Based Guidelines for Prehospital Airway Management: Methods and Resources Document
CONCLUSION: The EBGs for prehospital airway management were developed by leveraging validated techniques, including the GRADE methodology and a rigorous systematic approach to consensus building to identify treatment recommendations. This process allowed the mitigation of many virtual and electronic communication confounders while managing several PICO questions to be evaluated consistently. Recognizing the increased need for rigorous evidence evaluation and recommendation development, this approach allows for transparency in the development processes and may inform future guideline development.PMID:38133520 | DOI:10.1080/...

This project aimed to create evidence-based guidelines based on the systematic review recently conducted by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). A technical expert panel was assembled to review the evidence using the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development, and Evaluation (GRADE) methodology. The panel made specific recommendations on the different PICO (population, intervention, comparison, outcome) questions reviewed in the AHRQ ...
