Shock Index as a Predictor of Mortality and Hospital Admission in Prehospital Gastrointestinal Bleeding: A Retrospective Cohort Study
Conclusion: The SI is a valuable predictive tool for mortality among prehospital patients with GI bleeding. Its application may improve the triage process, potentially influencing transport decisions and initial hospital care. Despite its predictive capability for mortality, the SI should be supplemented with other clinical assessments to make comprehensive prehospital care decisions. Further research into SI as part of a comprehensive assessment which includes end-title CO2, mentation, and heaviness of bleeding.PMID:38498777 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2024.2331739 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)

Factors Impacting the Implementation of Mobile Integrated Health Programs for the Acute Care of Older Adults
Conclusions: Common themes impacting the implementation of MIH programs were identified across vested partner groups. Multilevel strategies are needed to address patient adoption, clinical partners' workflow, and legislative policies to ensure the success of MIH programs.PMID:38498782 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2024.2333034 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)

Methodology for Evidence Evaluation and Reporting of the NAEMSP Trauma Compendium Position Statements
Conclusion: We report a standardized methodology for literature review and development of recommendations as part of a compendium of trauma-related position statements from NAEMSP and partner organizations. This methodology can serve as a template for future position statements with ongoing refinement.PMID:38484123 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2024.2329217 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)

Characteristics and outcomes of patients referred to a general practitioner by Victorian paramedics
Conclusions: Despite increasing low and medium-acuity casework in this EMS system, paramedic referral to a GP is not common practice. Referring a patient to a GP did not reduce the likelihood of patients experiencing a high acuity outcome or recalling an ambulance within 48 hours, suggesting opportunity exists to refine paramedic to GP referral practices.PMID:38451214 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2024.2326601 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)

The Public Health and Economic Impact of Drug Overdose Out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrest in the United States
CONCLUSIONS: The DALY due to DO-OHCA has increased over time with expansion of the CARES dataset, but its relative contribution to total OHCA DALY (all non-traumatic etiologies) remained fairly stable. The DO-OHCAs represent approximately 6% of all adult non-traumatic EMS-treated OHCA events but has a disproportionately greater economic impact. Continued efforts to reduce DO-OHCA through public health initiatives are warranted to lessen the societal impact of OHCA in the U.S.PMID:38451237 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2024.2327526 (Source: Prehospital Emergency Care)
