Thoracic trauma severity contributes to differences in intensive care therapy and mortality of severely injured patients: analysis based on the TraumaRegister DGU®

Thoracic trauma is a relevant source of comorbidity throughout multiply-injured patient care. We aim to determine a measurable influence of chest trauma’s severity on early resuscitation, intensive care therapy, and mortality in severely injured patients. Patients documented between 2002 and 2012 in the TraumaRegister DGU®, aged ≥ 16 years, injury severity score (ISS) ≥ 16 are ...

Possibly preventable cardiac arrest in a morbidly obese patient - a comment on the 2015 ERC guidelines

Background The incidence of overweight and obesity has been steadily on the rise and has reached epidemic proportions in various countries and this represents a well-known major health problem.

Emergency radiological examination of the externally stabilized pelvis – there is a catch to it: lessons learned from two cases with symphyseal disruption despite initial inconspicuous computed tomography

Background Preclinical and early clinical external pelvic stabilization using commercially available devices has become common in trauma patient care. Thus, in the emergency department an increasing number of patients will undergo radiographic evaluation of the externally stabilized pelvis to exclude injuries. While reports exist where injuries to the pelvis were elusive to ...

Survival and neurologic outcome after traumatic out-of-hospital cardiopulmonary arrest in a pediatric and adult population: a systematic review

Data were analyzed for adults/pediatric patients and for blunt/penetrating trauma. Methods A systematic review was performed using the data available in Ovid Medline. 476 articles from 1/1964 - 5/2011 were identified by ...
