Primary Aim: To determine the feasibility and safety of hypotensive resuscitation for the early treatment of patients with traumatic shock compared to standard fluid resuscitation. Primary Hypotheses: The null hypothesis regarding feasibility is that hypotensive resuscitation will result in the same volume of early crystalloid (normal saline) fluid administration compared to standard crystalloid resuscitation. The null hypothesis regarding safety is that ... Read More

Vigorous fluid resuscitation is currently believed to play a key role in reducing complications associated with acute pancreatitis. However, aggressive fluid replacement can be associated with complications such as pulmonary fluid sequestration. The purpose of this study is to evaluate alternative approaches to early fluid resuscitation for patients with acute pancreatitis. Read More

Cardiac arrest is handled by cardiopulmonary resuscitation which is a time critical emergency situation. The actions during resuscitation are lead by international guidelines. Traditionally, the main focus of the training has been on medical knowledge and technical skills (TS). Nowadays non-technical skills (NTS), such as communication, teamwork behaviour, and leadership, are considered at least equally important. The aim of this study is to evaluate both ... Read More

The aim of the study was to compare time and success rates of four intubation devices in a cardiopulmonary scenario with and without chest compressions with a standardized pediatric manikin model. Read More

Medical education was transformed from mainly didactic class before 19th century to the clerkship and internship training based on the concept of "learning by doing" in 20th century. There are new challenges for medical education in the 21th century, including knowledge explosion, the importance of communication and teamwork in clinical care, and lack of comprehensive and systemic experiential learning. Therefore, another paradigm shift of medical education ... Read More

Prospective, randomized controlled trial to be performed at one center, of term and late preterm infants requiring resuscitation. Prenatal consent will be obtained. At randomization, babies will be resuscitated following Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) guidelines and ventilated using the T-piece resuscitator with either a Face Mask (FM) or Non-inflating supraglottic airway. Video will be collected during resuscitation as well as written documentation. ... Read More

Approximately 50,000 patients are victims of out of hospital cardiac arrest every year in France. Despite cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and many studies on the topic resuscitation survival after cardiac arrest remains low (1-8%) and has not changed significantly over the past five decades.It has recently been shown that the combination of different non-invasive therapies, cardiopulmonary resuscitation with mechanical CPR with automated compression / ...

The investigators will retrospectively examine the connection between resuscitation decisions of admitted patients at the ED of the University Hospital of Basel and several demographic and health related measures. Additionally there will be an examination, which patient characterestics may have lead to patients not having been asked about resuscitation decisions. Read More

The purpose of this study is to determine which of two commonly used methods of manual pediatric fluid resuscitation (The "Push-Pull Technique" vs. the "Disconnect-Reconnect Technique") allows for the most rapid administration of normal saline when this is urgently required. Read More

Whether teaching leadership with a short debriefing has a positive influence on the performance of cardiopulmonary resuscitation remains largely unknown. The investigators will assess the sustained efficacy of a short leadership debriefing compared to a technical debriefing in a high fidelity simulated cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Read More

Trauma patients, who are transfused with multiple blood products to treat shock due to blood loss, frequently develop inappropriately low vasopressin levels. Vasopressin is a hormone necessary to maintain an adequate blood pressure and low levels have been associated with the need for increased transfusions, vasopressors and additional morbidity. Vasopressin is routinely used in the ICU to treat septic shock and other disease processes resulting in decreased ... Read More

Management of cardiac arrest is complicated by the lack of a readily available tool identifying individuals who are likely to be successfully resuscitated. S100 beta is a protein that originates in the astroglial cells of the brain, and NSE (Neuron Specific Enolase) is another protein that originates in the neurons themselves. In the laboratory, the concentration of these proteins correlate with evidence of brain damage after head trauma, stroke and exposure ... Read More

More than 300,000 Americans experience out-of-hospital cardiac arrest annually, with overall survival rates averaging less than 5%. Low survival rates persist, in part, because manual chest compressions and ventilation, termed standard cardiopulmonary resuscitation (S-CPR), is an inherently inefficient process, providing less than 25% of normal blood flow to the heart and the brain. Hemodynamics are often compromised further by poor S-CPR techniques, ... Read More

The almost evidences of the optimal hand position during compression had been based on chest computed tomography (CT) or chest plain films of patients for investigating the effective location for compressing the left ventricle of the heart during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). However every study was conducted at full inspired state of respiration. A prospective cohort study to evaluate the proper hand position during CPR based on expired respiratory ... Read More

The quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has been identified as an important determinants for patient survival, yet many studies revealed poor CPR guidelines compliance in real-life practice for both health care providers and lay persons. Common shortcomings identified include an insufficient number of chest compression, too rapid lung inflations, and too much hands-off time. The poor quality of CPR is associated with lower survival rate. Besides, ... Read More
