Sodium Bicarbonate as a Tool for Managing Head Trauma
Your aeromedical EMS crew is dispatched to Mexico for a head injury patient who's an American citizen being repatriated back home. The patient is a 47-year-old male who was found unresponsive on the side of the road in Mexico the previous day and was diagnosed with a subarachnoid hemorrhage. It's unclear what happened, but the patient may have fallen or been hit by a car. There are no signs of external trauma noted. He was brought to the local clinic where surgery was performed for a subarachnoid hemorrhage. On arrival, the crew finds an intubated male with a Glasgow coma scale (GCS) of 3 with pupils of 4 mm and n...

Claims acupuncture 'staves off dementia' are missing the point
Conclusion This review aimed to gather evidence for the safety and effectiveness of acupuncture to treat mild cognitive impairment. It found some evidence that acupuncture may have some efficacy, but there are many important cautions to this research: All trials compared acupuncture with nimodipine, which is not licensed for this use in the UK. Since there are no treatments or interventions licensed in the UK to prevent progression of MCI, it's hard to draw any comparisons or implications from such findings. There are only five relatively small studies, all of which seem to be Chinese populations. We don't know that s...
