CAM-ICU may not be the optimal screening tool for early delirium screening in older emergency department patients: a prospective cohort study.

Eur J Emerg Med 2018 Dec 20. Epub 2018 Dec 20.

Departments of Gerontology and Geriatrics.

Objectives: Delirium is a frequent problem among older patients in the emergency department (ED) and early detection is important to prevent its associated adverse outcomes. Several screening tools for delirium have been proposed for the ED, such as the 6-Item Cognitive Impairment Test (6-CIT) and the Confusion Assessment Method-ICU (CAM-ICU). Previous validation of the CAM-ICU for use in the ED showed varying results, possibly because it was administered at different or unknown time points. Read More

Enhanced triage for patients with suspected cardiac chest pain: the History and Electrocardiogram-only Manchester Acute Coronary Syndromes (HE-MACS) decision aid.

Eur J Emerg Med 2018 Oct 4. Epub 2018 Oct 4.

Cardioavascular Science Research Group, Division of Cardiovascular Sciences The University of Manchester.

Objectives: Several decision aids can 'rule in' and 'rule out' acute coronary syndromes (ACS) in the Emergency Department (ED) but all require measurement of blood biomarkers. A decision aid that does not require biomarker measurement could enhance risk stratification at triage and could be used in the prehospital environment.

Ventricular fibrillation recorded and analysed within an area the size of a mobile phone: could it enable cardiac arrest recognition?

Eur J Emerg Med 2018 Dec;25(6):394-399

Centre for Prehospital Emergency Care.

Background: Recognition of out-of-hospital-cardiac arrests (OHCAs) at emergency medical communication centres is based on questions of OHCA symptoms, resulting in 50-80% accuracy rates. However, OHCAs might be recognized more promptly using 'rhythm-based' recognition, whereby a victim's cardiac rhythm is recorded with mobile phone technology that analyses and transmits recordings to emergency medical communication centres for further interpretation.

Objective: To examine whether the quality of normal cardiac rhythm and the rhythm with the best prognosis in OHCA, ventricular fibrillation (VF), is sufficient for 'rhythm-based' OHCA recognition when recorded within a mobile phone-sized device. Read More

Optimising emergency weight estimation in underweight and obese children: the accuracy of estimations of total body weight and ideal body weight.

Eur J Emerg Med 2018 Jul 23. Epub 2018 Jul 23.

Division of Emergency Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Objective: During medical emergencies, underweight and obese children are at a higher risk of weight-estimation errors than 'average' children, which may lead to poorer outcomes. In obese children, optimum drug dosing requires a measure of both total body weight (TBW) and ideal body weight (IBW) for appropriate scaling. We evaluated the ability of the Broselow tape, the Mercy method and the PAWPER XL tape to estimate TBW and IBW in obese and underweight children. Read More

Early variation of quick sequential organ failure assessment score to predict in-hospital mortality in emergency department patients with suspected infection.

Eur J Emerg Med 2018 Nov 28. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Sorbonne Université, GRC 14 BIOSFAST and UMR INSERM 1166, IHU ICAN.

Background: The quick sequential organ failure assessment (qSOFA) score showed good prognostic performance in patients with suspicion of infection in the emergency department (ED). However, previous studies only assessed the performance of individual values of qSOFA during the ED stay. As this score may vary over short timeframes, the optimal time of measurement, and the prognostic value of its variation are unclear. Read More
