Whole-Body Computed Tomography for Polytrauma Patients in the Emergency Department: Recommended or Unnecessary Radiation

Akram Bolbol, Abdulhakam Ahmed, Osman EA Suliman and Abdullah Al-mater Abduraboh

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 24, 2022

Whole-body computed tomography (WBCT) is one of the standard non-invasive tests for trauma patients, to avoid the overuse of the WBCT and unnecessary radiation to the patients, a combination of evidence-based indications, approved guidelines and the clinical decision should be used. This study was done to emphasize on limitation of unnecessary WBCT following international or local criteria along with clinical assessment and decision without compromising the patient’s safety. This study was per...

Speed Marching in Military Boots: The Walk-To-Run Transition Speed and Vertical Ground Reaction Forces

LTC Wes O. Zimmermann, MD, PhD and MAJ Eric M. Lever, MD

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 24, 2022

Speed marching is the term for moving on foot, in which service members alternate marching and running to cover a certain distance in limited time. The standard load for speed marching is 25 kilograms, this includes a backpack, a tactical vest and rifle. When increasing walking speed, a person will switch from walking to running at a certain speed, this is called walk-to-run transition. The walkto- run transition speed for marching in military boots, with or without a rifle, is unknown. Marching...

Impact of Varying Exercise Intensity on Oxygen Uptake and Cardiovascular Response during Body Weight Supported Treadmill Walking in Healthy Adults

R. Scott Van Zant, Wick R. Colchagoff, Josh Addis, Joel Daloz, Maureen Gill, Jenna Moskow and Aubrey Norris

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 21, 2022

Body Weight Supported Treadmill Training (BWSTT) is effectively used in locomotive training for patients with neurologic and musculoskeletal deficits. The impact of BWSTT on oxygen uptake (VO2) and cardiovascular (HR and BP) response in patients has been shown to be variable, possibly due to level of Body Weight Support (BWS) or exercise intensity. The purpose of this study was to compare and quantify VO2, HR, and BP response in healthy adults during BWSTT at 0% and 30% BWS for two exercise inte...

Sarcoidosis Presenting as a Case of Pulmonary Thrombotic Disease- An Unusual Presentation

Muhammad Haseeb ul Rasool, MBBS, Sara Z Khan, MD and Pervaiz Iqbal, MD, FCCP

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 24, 2022

Sarcoidosis is a chronic inflammatory disease involving multiple organ systems for which the inciting stimulus is unknown. It is characterized by elevated markers of inflammation and disseminated granuloma in the affected organs. Factor V Leiden deficiency has been long associated with an elevated risk of thrombosis, however, it has been observed in the patients having sarcoidosis, a secondary inciting stimulus is required to trigger the thromboembolic phenomenon, as to date only a few cases of ...

A Novel Approach to Confirm Endotracheal Tube Depth Using Ultrasound Color Doppler: A Cadaveric Model

Ariel Daube, MD, Leroy Phillips, MD, Erin West, MS, Lorraine Ng, MD, Lindsey T Chaudoin, MD, Arthur Smerling, MD and David Kessler, MD, MSc

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 24, 2022

Proper endotracheal tube (ETT) depth must be confirmed immediately after intubation. We developed a novel point-of-care ultrasound examination called the cuff puff (CP) and hypothesized it would accurately confirm appropriate ETT depth in a cadaveric model. CP comprises visualization of cuff inflation using color Doppler sonography. On a single fresh frozen cadaver, a well-positioned tube was defined as the tip lying between 6.5 cm below the vocal cords and 3 cm above the carina. The ETT was pla...

Is There a Relationship between Serum D-Dimer Levels and Thorax CT Severity Score in Patients with COVID-19?: A Retrospective Analysis

Belma Cevik, MD and Kayıhan Akın, MD

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: January 15, 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic began in Wuhan (Hubei, China) in December 2019 and rapidly spread around the World. Because of RT-PCR sensitivity limitations, the radiology literature has focused on detecting the probability of infection of non-contrast CT findings. However the elevated serum D-dimer levels and its relationship with poor outcomes in COVID-19 pneumonia patients have been demonstrated. D-dimer is known as a biomarker of inflammation. Therefore, we considered that serum D-dimer levels may pr...

Decision Making Surrounding Mode of Initial Enteral Feeding in Critically Ill Pediatric Patients

Arianne M Maya, BS, Kathleen R Ehresmann, MD, Moiz M Mustafa, MD, Janice A Taylor, MD, MEd, Shawn D Larson, MD, Saleem Islam, MD, MPH and Robin T Petroze, MD, MPH

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: January 21, 2022

Wide practice variation and weak guidelines exist when considering enteral feeding options and the decision to proceed with gastric or postpyloric enteral feeding in critically ill infants and children. The purpose of this pilot study is to explore provider decision making in early feeding of critically ill pediatric patients, review the indications for choice of enteral feeding access, and qualitatively explore the role of institutional culture in medical decision making. In-person structured i...

Need for Trauma Intervention and Improving Under-Triaging in Geriatric Trauma Patients: Under-Triaged or Misclassified

Gabriel Beam, MSN, RN, Kimberly Gorman, DNP, AG-ACNP-BC, CNL, CCRN, CNRN, TCRN, Siddhartha Nannapaneni, MD, Jami Zipf, BSN, RN, Thomas Simunich, MS, MBA and Russell Dumire, MD

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: January 24, 2022

Combining the Need for Trauma Intervention (NFTI) calculation with the Cribari Matrix Method (CMM) more accurately determines appropriate triage, particularly of geriatric trauma patients. These patients (>/= age 65 years) have comorbidities, increased frailty, and decreased overall functional capacity. The CMM alone does not address their increased risk of mortality secondary to inappropriate or suboptimal care; performance improvement efforts to decrease the risk of under-triage have prompted ...
