Brief Compression-Only Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Training Video And Simulation With Homemade Mannequin Improves Cpr Skills., Gregory K Wanner, Arayel Osborne, Charlotte H. Greene Phd

PCOM Scholarly Papers

BACKGROUND: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training has traditionally involved classroom-based courses or, more recently, home-based video self-instruction. These methods typically require preparation and purchase fee; which can dissuade many potential bystanders from receiving training. This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of teaching compression-only CPR to previously untrained individuals using our 6-min online CPR training video and skills practice on a homemade mannequin, reproduced by viewers with commonly available items (towel, toilet paper roll, t-shirt).

METHODS: Participants viewed the training video and practiced with the homemade mannequin. This was a parallel-design study with pre and post training evaluations of CPR skills ...

Can Bedside Ultrasound Inferior Vena Cava Measurements Accurately Diagnose Congestive Heart Failure In The Emergency Department? A Clin-Iq, Miranda Gaskamp, Mark Blubaugh, Laine H. Mccarthy, Dewey C. Scheid

Journal of Patient-Centered Research and Reviews

Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Early diagnosis of CHF in patients presenting to the emergency department with undifferentiated dyspnea would allow clinicians to begin appropriate treatment more promptly. Current guidelines recommend B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels for more accurate diagnosis of CHF in dyspneic patients. Although BNP levels are relatively inexpensive, the test is not usually performed at bedside and results may take up to an hour or more. BNP also may have a “gray zone” in which the values can neither confirm nor rule out CHF. BNP has a reported sensitivity of ...

Traumatic Posterior Tibial Pseudoaneursym: A Rare Late Complication Repaired Conventionally, Farzad Amiri, Md, Zachary Sanford, Constantinous Constantinou, Md

Constantinous Constantinou

Posterior tibial artery pseudoaneurysms are extremely rare. They commonly present as a late complication of trauma or iatrogenic injury. Diagnosis can be elusive. Treatment has been described in the context of open primary repair, endovascular stenting, and coil embolization. There has been increasing interest in the use of endovascular treatment options for this type of injury. If left untreated, pseudoaneurysms can rupture, partially thrombose, expand and cause adjacent local compression and compartment syndrome. The following case presented is of a young gentleman with a posterior tibial pseudoaneurysm incidentally discovered after stepping on glass and the management of his posterior tibial ...


Academic Medicine Responds To The Opioid Crisis, John Prescott 2016 Association of American Medical Colleges

Academic Medicine Responds To The Opioid Crisis, John Prescott

Marshall Journal of Medicine

Opioid dependence has devastated communities across the nation particularly in rural states and academic medicine has responded in a variety of ways. Through its tripartite mission of education, research, and clinical care, creative solutions are being implanted. Medical schools and teaching hospitals are partnering with public health and law enforcement agencies, as well as local healthcare providers to address the clinical, social, and rehabilitative challenges. Academic medicine continues to adapt to the needs of the nation and teach, train, and prepare the next generation of physicians to be at their best when things are at their worst.

Emergency Medical Communications For Public Safety Communicators, Natalie (Tally) Wade, Alice Macpherson

All Faculty Scholarship

Emergency Medical Communications for Public Safety Communicators introduces the protocols and techniques for incident processing and dispatching in emergency medical situations. The section on emergency medical call assessment and radio dispatching can be used to create lab simulations in a team environment in training, and to simulate emergency medical telephone instruction. Medical terminology, physiology and other terms are explained in the context of emergency medical communication. Interagency coordination and mass casualty incidents are explained with examples given. This Canadian textbook is part of the Public Safety Communications program at Kwantlen Polytechnic University.

Department of Emergency Medicine Faculty Papers

INTRODUCTION: Scholarship is an essential part of academic success. Junior faculty members are often unfamiliar with the grounding literature that defines educational scholarship. In this article, the authors aim to summarize five key papers which outline education scholarship in the setting of academic contributions for emerging clinician educators.

METHODS: The authors conducted a consensus-building process to generate a list of key papers that describe the importance and significance of academic scholarship, informed by social media sources. They then used a three-round voting methodology, akin to a Delphi study, to determine the most useful papers.

RESULTS: A summary of the five ...

Emergency Medicine Faculty Publications

Introduction: By critically appraising open access, educational blogs and podcasts in emergency medicine (EM) using an objective scoring instrument, this installment of the ALiEM (Academic Life in Emergency Medicine) Blog and Podcast Watch series curated and scored relevant posts in the specific areas of pediatric EM.

Methods: The Approved Instructional Resources - Professional (AIR-Pro) series is a continuously building curriculum covering a new subject area every two months. For each area, six EM chief residents identify 3-5 advanced clinical questions. Using FOAMsearch.net to search blogs and podcasts, relevant posts are scored by eight reviewers from the AIR-Pro Board, which is ...

Uchunguzi (Journal Watch/Montre De Journal) September 2016, Benjamin Wachira

Emergency Medicine, East Africa

Most states in the USA have ‘Good Samaritan’ laws that oblige doctors to stop and render emergency treatment under certain circumstances, without incurring legal liability even if they are negligent. Whether doctors are legally obliged to stop and render assistance at road accidents in most countries across the world remains controversial. In 1978, the South African Medical and Dental Council ruled that ‘in cases of emergency a practitioner is obliged to render assistance in all circumstances’. It has therefore been said that ‘where persons are in a situation where their life or health will be seriously endangered unless they receive ...


A Matter Of Degrees? Views Of Ems Online Degrees' Value And Design, Sandy L. Hunter 2016 Eastern Kentucky University

A Matter Of Degrees? Views Of Ems Online Degrees' Value And Design, Sandy L. Hunter

EKU Faculty and Staff Scholarship

EMS has continued its move from a product of training to being the result of education. A part of that process has been the proliferation of academic programs that focus upon emergency medical services related topical areas. As this trend continues, it is incumbent upon the educators who teach these curricula to determine the most desired and (therefore) effective designs for EMS degrees. This presentation will discuss the results of statewide online research of Paramedics in Kentucky, asking several questions to determine: - the current level of education among that population, - the types of EMS programs they completed, - perceived usefulness of ...
