Near-drowning: new perspectives for human hypoxic acute kidney injury.

Nephrol Dial Transplant 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Medicine D, Rambam Health Care Campus and Ruth & Bruce Rappaport Faculty of Medicine, Technion-IIT, Haifa, Israel.

Concepts regarding hypoxic acute kidney injury (AKI) are derived from widely used warm ischemia-reflow (WIR) models, characterized by extensive proximal tubular injury and associated with profound inflammation. However, there is ample clinical and experimental data indicating that hypoxic AKI may develop without total cessation of renal blood flow, with a different injury pattern that principally affects medullary thick limbs in the outer medulla. This injury pattern likely reflects an imbalance between blood and oxygen supply and oxygen expenditure, principally for tubular transport. Read More

Extracorporeal life support in the emergency department: A narrative review for the emergency physician.

Resuscitation 2018 Dec 15;133:108-117. Epub 2018 Oct 15.

Department of Emergency Medicine, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, 1501 Kings Highway, Shreveport, LA 71103, USA.

Background: Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) describes the use of blood perfusion devices to provide advanced cardiac or respiratory support. Advances in percutaneous vascular cannula insertion, centrifugal pump technologies, and the miniaturization of extracorporeal devices have simplified ECLS. The intention of this discussion is to review the role of ECLS as a potential rescue method for emergency department (ED) clinicians in critical clinical scenarios and to focus on the prerequisites for managing an ECLS program in an ED setting.

Cerebral infections usually occur in lung transplant recipients as well as in immunocompetent patients in the context of near drowning. Voriconazole is the first-line treatment. The diffusion of voriconazole through the blood-brain barrier in the context of cerebral infection and cyclosporine administration is crucial and remains a matter of debate. Read More

A growing body of evidence has confirmed that, after severe brain injury in adults, motoric and task-dependent factors that are essential for reliable communication, frequently interfere with an accurate assessment of cognitive status. In the current study, resting state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in children who have sustained an anoxic brain injury following a near drowning incident suggests a similar pattern; preserved cognition amidst severe motoric impairment that effectively precludes accurate clinical diagnosis at the bedside.

Impact of glacial/interglacial sea level change on the ocean nitrogen cycle.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2017 08 31;114(33):E6759-E6766. Epub 2017 Jul 31.

The continental shelves are the most biologically dynamic regions of the ocean, and they are extensive worldwide, especially in the western North Pacific. Their area has varied dramatically over the glacial/interglacial cycles of the last million years, but the effects of this variation on ocean biological and chemical processes remain poorly understood. Conversion of nitrate to N by denitrification in sediments accounts for half or more of the removal of biologically available nitrogen ("fixed N") from the ocean. Read More

Therapeutic hypothermia brings favorable neurologic outcomes in children with near drowning.

Ci Ji Yi Xue Za Zhi 2016 Oct-Dec;28(4):180-182. Epub 2016 Sep 15.

Department of Pediatrics, Buddhist Tzu Chi General Hospital, Hualien, Taiwan.

A 1-year-10-month-old boy was admitted to our pediatric intensive care unit due to near drowning with pulmonary edema. A conventional ventilator with 100% oxygen supplementation was used initially, but was shifted to high frequency oscillatory ventilation as his oxygen saturation was around 84-88%. Therapeutic hypothermia was applied due to hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy with severe acidosis. Read More

The use of non-uniform drowning terminology: a follow-up study.

Scand J Trauma Resusc Emerg Med 2017 Jul 17;25(1):72. Epub 2017 Jul 17.

Tulane University School of Medicine, Tulane University, 1430 Tulane Ave, 70112, New Orleans, LA, USA.

Background: In 2002, the World Congress on Drowning developed a uniform definition for drowning. The aim of this study is to determine the prevalence of "non-uniform drowning terminology" (NUDT) and "non-uniform drowning definitions" (NUDD) in peer-reviewed scientific literature from 2010 to 2016, and compare these findings with those from our unpublished study performing a similar analysis on literature from 2003 to 2010.

Methods: A systematic review was performed using drowning-specific search terms in Pubmed and Web of Science. Read More

A document analysis of drowning prevention education resources in the United States.

Int J Inj Contr Saf Promot 2018 Mar 13;25(1):78-84. Epub 2017 Jul 13.

a Coaching and Teaching Studies, West Virginia University , Morgantown , WV , USA.

There have been long-standing calls to better educate the public at large on risks of drowning; yet limited evaluation has taken place on current resources in circulation. The purpose of this qualitative research is to develop an understanding of the content in currently circulated drowning prevention resources in the United States. Data points (n = 451) consisting of specific content within 25 different drowning prevention educational resources were analyzed using document analysis methods; a grounded theory approach was employed to allow for categorical development and indexing of the data.

Purpose: The aim of this study is to compare the effectiveness of active recovery in form of running or foam rolling on clearing blood lactate compared to remain sitting after a water rescue.

Method: A quasi experimental cross-over design was used to test the effectiveness of two active recovery methods: foam rolling (FR) and running (RR), compared with passive recovery (PR) on the blood lactate clearance after performing a water rescue. Twelve lifeguards from Marín (Pontevedra) completed the study. Read More
