School Nurses on the Front Lines of Medicine: Emergencies Associated With Sport and Physical Activities: Part 1.

NASN Sch Nurse 2019 Feb 9:1942602X18819223. Epub 2019 Feb 9.

Professor, Departments of Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics, Penn State College of Medicine.

Illness and injury associated with sport and physical activities may occur in the school setting. Although most sport-related illness and injury in students are considered minor emergencies, life- and limb-threatening illnesses or injuries may occur, such as sudden cardiac arrest, heat stroke, status asthmaticus, catastrophic brain or cervical spine injuries, hypoglycemia, blunt chest/abdominal injuries, or extremity fractures requiring surgery. It is important for the school nurse to recognize potential life- and limb-threatening emergencies associated with sport and physical activity, to initiate stabilization of the student with life- and limb-threatening symptoms, and to triage these students to an appropriate level of care (back to the classroom, home with their guardian with follow up at their primary healthcare provider's office, or directly to the closest emergency department via emergency medical services).

Co-initiation of continuous renal replacement therapy, peritoneal dialysis, and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in neonatal life-threatening hyaline membrane disease: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Jan;98(4):e14194

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery.

Rationale: Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a well-known technique to provide cardio-pulmonary support. Although continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) is frequently indicated, the need for faster fluid removal as the primary indication for ECMO is uncommon. Experiences on concomitant applications of ECMO, peritoneal dialysis (PD) and CRRT in neonates are relatively limited. Read More

Effects of obesity on burn resuscitation.

Burns 2018 Dec 31;44(8):1947-1953. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Department of Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX, USA.

The effects of obesity on resuscitation after severe burn are not well understood. Formulas to calculate 24-h resuscitation volumes incorporate body weight, which in obese patients often leads to excessive fluid administration and potential complications such as pulmonary edema, extremity or abdominal compartment syndrome, and longer mechanical ventilation. We evaluated the impact of obesity on 24-h fluid resuscitation after severe burn using a cohort of 145 adults admitted to the burn ICU from January 2014 to March 2017 with >20% total body surface area burns.

Department of General Surgery, General Surgery Unit, New Sant'Agostino Hospital, Via Pietro Giardini, 1355, 41126, Modena, Italy.

To date, there is no shared consensus on a definition of a complex abdominal wall in elective surgery and in the emergency, on indications, technical details, complications, and follow-up. The purpose of the conference was to lay the foundations for a homogeneous approach to the complex abdominal wall with the primary intent being to attain the following objectives: (1) to develop evidence-based recommendations to define "complex abdominal wall"; (2) indications in emergency and in elective cases; (3) management of "complex abdominal wall"; (4) techniques for temporary abdominal closure. The decompressive laparostomy should be considered in a case of abdominal compartment syndrome in patients with critical conditions or after the failure of a medical treatment or less invasive methods.

Diffuse infantile hepatic haemangioma-how to manage an incidental but potentially lethal finding.

Oxf Med Case Reports 2018 Aug 21;2018(8):omy054. Epub 2018 Aug 21.

Paediatrics Department, Hospital Dr. Nélio Mendonça, Funchal, Portugal.

Infantile hepatic haemangioma (IHH) is a rare vascular tumour that is potentially lethal due to its associated complications, including heart failure, hepatic failure, hypothyroidism and abdominal compartment syndrome. The authors report a case of an asymptomatic diffuse IHH in a newborn male, which was presented as an incidental finding at the time that the patient was diagnosed with pyloric stenosis. The patient was treated with increasing doses of propranolol that were well tolerated. Read More

Effect of decompressive laparotomy on organ function in patients with abdominal compartment syndrome: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Crit Care 2018 07 25;22(1):179. Epub 2018 Jul 25.

Department of Critical Care Medicine, Ghent University Hospital, C. Heymanslaan 10, 9000, Ghent, Belgium.

Background: Decompressive laparotomy has been advised as potential treatment for abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) when medical management fails; yet, the effect on parameters of organ function differs markedly in the published literature. In this study, we sought to investigate the effect of decompressive laparotomy on intra-abdominal pressure and organ function in critically ill adult and pediatric patients with ACS, specifically focusing on hemodynamic, respiratory, and kidney function and outcome.

Methods: A systematic review and meta-analysis of the literature was performed. Read More
