Study on the effect of a cold environment on the quality of three video laryngoscopes: McGrath MAC, GlideScope Ranger, and Pentax Airway Scope

Park JW, Choi HJ

  • Clin Exp Emerg Med.
  • 2019 Dec;6(4):351-355.
  • doi: 10.15441/ceem.18.063
OBJECTIVE: Several environmental factors influence the prehospital use of video laryngoscopes (VLs). For example, fogging of the VL lens can occur in cold environments, and the low temperature can cause...
Predictors of poor prognosis in patients with heat stroke

Chun JK, Choi S, Kim HH, Yang HW, Kim CS

  • Clin Exp Emerg Med.
  • 2019 Dec;6(4):345-350.
  • doi: 10.15441/ceem.18.081
OBJECTIVE: The predictors of poor prognosis in heat stroke (HS) remain unknown. This study investigated the predictive factors of poor prognosis in patients with HS. METHODS: Data were obtained and analyzed...
Parental presence during pediatric emergency procedures: finding answers in an Asian context

Wong PC, Tripathi M, Warier A, Lim ZY, Chong SL

  • Clin Exp Emerg Med.
  • 2019 Dec;6(4):340-344.
  • doi: 10.15441/ceem.18.075
OBJECTIVE: The practice of allowing parental presence during invasive procedures in children varies depending on setting and individual provider preference. We aim to understand the attitudes, preferences, and practices of...
Higher enhanced computed tomography attenuation value of the aorta is a predictor of massive transfusion in blunt trauma patients

Yumoto T, Ihoriya H, Tanabe R, Naito H, Nakao A

  • Clin Exp Emerg Med.
  • 2019 Dec;6(4):330-339.
  • doi: 10.15441/ceem.18.090
OBJECTIVE: Several scoring systems have been developed to identify patients who require massive transfusion (MT) after major trauma to improve survival. The primary goal of this study was to investigate...

  • 2019 Dec;6(4):314-320.
  • doi: 10.15441/ceem.18.070
OBJECTIVE: The quick sequential organ failure assessment (qSOFA) score, which includes mentation, systolic blood pressure, and respiratory rate, was developed to identify serious sepsis in out-of-hospital or emergency department (ED)...
Determination of the theoretical personalized optimum chest compression point using anteroposterior chest radiography

Kim S, Chon SB, Oh WS, Cho S

  • Clin Exp Emerg Med.
  • 2019 Dec;6(4):303-313.
  • doi: 10.15441/ceem.19.016
OBJECTIVE: There is a traditional assumption that to maximize stroke volume, the point beneath which the left ventricle (LV) is at its maximum diameter (P_max.LV) should be compressed. Thus, we...
