Human factors influencing out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survival.

Emerg Med Australas 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Faculty of Health, University of Technology Sydney, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Objective: Programmes that reduce the time to defibrillation are likely to improve overall survival rates from out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCAs). This research sought to identify human factors common among community responders taking an automated external defibrillator (AED) to a victim of an OHCA that are either barriers or enablers of desired behaviour.

Methods: A qualitative methodology was used. Read More

Integrating trauma registry data into real-time patient care.

Emerg Med Australas 2019 02 19;31(1):138-140. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

National Trauma Research Institute, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Trauma and other disease registries have been used to improve patient care and outcomes at the system level. Paradoxically, registries have had little role in informing the care of any individual patient while that care is being determined and delivered. The lack of timeliness of useful data is a major barrier to the value of registries in improving individual patient care real-time. Read More

Review article: A primer for clinical researchers in the emergency department: Part VII. Considering a research higher degree in emergency medicine: How does it work, where to start, what to consider.

Emerg Med Australas 2019 02 11;31(1):4-10. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Paediatric Research in Emergency Departments International Collaborative (PREDICT), Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

In this series we address important topics for clinicians who participate in research or are considering research as part of their career path in emergency medicine. While much emergency research is successfully done by clinicians without a research higher degree (RHD), undertaking a master's degree or doctorate allows a research topic to be pursued in greater depth. It also provides a solid basis for a future research career in terms of research quality, advanced skills, academic progression and track record, as well as eligibility for grants and RHD supervision.

Position of the abdominal seat belt sign and its predictive utility for abdominal trauma.

Emerg Med Australas 2019 02 16;31(1):112-116. Epub 2018 Oct 16.

Sydney Nursing School, The University of Sydney, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Objective: In a motor vehicle crash, compressive forces from the lap component of the seat belt may produce an abdominal abrasion/contusion known as the 'seat belt sign', and is associated with abdominal and lumbar injuries. Previous research has not taken into account the position of this sign in relation to the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS). Our aim was to demonstrate an association between the seat belt sign position in relation to ASIS and the presence of abdominal/lumbar injury. Read More
