  2. Emergency department skull trephination for epidural hematoma in patients who are awake but deteriorate rapidly.

    The Journal of Emergency Medicine 39(3):377 (2010) PMID 19535215

    Blunt head trauma patients who have been alert but are deteriorating (talk and deteriorate [T&D]) due to a rapidly expanding epidural hematoma (EDH) usually have poor outcome if they must wait for hospital transfer for evacuation. We therefore have continued to teach skull trephination to emerge...
  3. Prehospital ultrasound by paramedics: results of field trial.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 17(6):624 (2010) PMID 20491683

    The objective was to determine if 9-1-1 paramedics trained in ultrasound (US) could adequately perform and interpret the Focused Assessment Sonography in Trauma (FAST) and the abdominal aortic (AA) exams in the prehospital care environment. Paramedics at two emergency medical services (EMS) agen...

  5. Bispectral index monitoring in helicopter emergency medical services patients.

    Prehospital Emergency Care 13(2):193 (2009) PMID 19291556

    Background. Many critically ill patients are given sedatives and paralytics to facilitate aeromedical transport. Bispectral index (BIS) monitoring is a computer-derived electroencephalography (EEG) analog currently used to monitor the level of awareness of sedated patients. It gives a score of 1...
  6. Acute myocardial infarction with left bundle-branch block: disproportional anterior ST elevation due to right ventricular myocardial infarction in the presence of left bundle-branch block.

    The American Journal of Emergency Medicine 26(3):342 (2008) PMID 18358947

    A case of inferior and right ventricular acute myocardial infarction in the presence of left bundle-branch block is presented. The electrocardiogram manifests disproportional, discordant ST elevation in leads II, III, and aVF and in leads V(1) through V(4).

  12. Traumatic brain injury.

    Emergency Medicine Clinics of North America 25(3):655 (2007) PMID 17826211

    Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a significant source of morbidity and mortality throughout the world. This article discusses the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and clinical presentations of minor, moderate, and severe TBI. Controversial topics, such as hypertonic saline for increased intracrania...

  14. Assessment of the onset and persistence of amnesia during procedural sedation with propofol.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 12(6):491 (2005) PMID 15930398

    To assess patients' ability to repeat and recall words presented to them while undergoing procedural sedation with propofol, and correlate their recall with their level of awareness as measured by bispectral index (BIS) monitoring. This was a prospective, single-intervention study of consenting ...

  17. Randomized clinical trial of propofol versus methohexital for procedural sedation during fracture and dislocation reduction in the emergency department.

    Academic Emergency Medicine 10(9):931 (2003) PMID 12957974

    Although methohexital has been well studied for use in emergency department (ED) procedural sedation (PS), propofol has been evaluated less extensively for ED use. The authors hypothesized that there is no difference in the depth of sedation and the rate of respiratory depression (RD) between pr...

    Academic Emergency Medicine 10(6):638 (2003) PMID 12782525

    To determine whether there is a correlation between the level of sedation achieved during procedural sedation (PS) in the emergency department as determined by bispectral electroencephalographic (EEG) analysis (BIS) and the rate of respiratory depression (RD), the patient's perception of pain, r...
