Box 64 Suggested emergency antiepileptic drug regimen for status in newly presenting adult patients

The earlier treatment is given the better. Early treatment by paramedics with intravenous diazepam or intravenous lorazepam has for instance been shown to prevent the evolution to or continuation of status epilepticus.33 In this study, although not statistically significant, lorazepam had a more impressive effect than diazepam. Furthermore, diazepam and lorazepam resulted in less respiratory depression than placebo, suggesting that continued seizure activity carries a not insubstantial risk of respiratory depression that may offset the risk of benzodiazepine administration.33 If the patient is at home, antiepileptic drugs should be administered before transfer to hospital, or in the casualty department before transfer to the ward. The acute administration of either diazepam or midazolam will cause drowsiness or sleep, and occasionally cardiorespiratory collapse, and should be carefully supervised.

Bloodborne Pathogens In the Workplace Debra L Hunt Jerry J Tulis MD

National surveillance data about AIDS in healthcare workers demonstrate that there is no high risk for working in the healthcare or laboratory setting. As of 1998, approximately 20,769 (5.1 ) of reported AIDS cases whose work history was known had related a history of working in a healthcare or laboratory setting since 1978 (4). This percentage is comparable to the proportion of the U.S. population working in the healthcare area (56). The occupations of those healthcare workers with AIDS are as follows 22 nurses, 21 health aides, 13 technicians, 8 physicians, 5 therapists, 2 dental workers, and 2 paramedics (4). Overall, 75 of the cases of AIDS in healthcare workers have died. Additionally, 133 other cases of HIV infection or AIDS have been reported among healthcare workers who were found to have no other social risk factors for HIV infection, but who experienced nondocumented occupational exposures to blood, body fluids, or laboratory levels of HIV. These include 33 nurses, 18...

Class Ib drugs lidocaine mexiletine

Lidocaine remains the first-line treatment for ventricular arrhythmias despite lack of clinical evidence for its efficacy. It is most appropriately used to treat ventricular arrhythmias in the post-myocardial infarction setting where acute ischemia is thought to be important in the pathogenesis of ventricular arrhythmias. It can no longer be advocated for primary prophylaxis of ventricular fibrillation. The definitive study of paramedic-administered lidocaine showed a statistically significant reduction in

The Case of Mickey Antisocial Personality Disorder

The ambulance attendants were no strangers to this bar. They were called to it fairly regularly, especially late into weekend nights. They were used to responding to near comatose patrons, and to those who were surly and belligerent. They knew how to talk them down while applying pressure to a wound and starting an IV line. They were not, however, familiar with Mickey. While a regular at the bar, he was not one of the emergency medical technicians' (EMTs) regulars. Mickey was known to throw a good punch and then walk away. He could stay and fight if he had to, but he seldom had to. He was savvy about who he took on. He took care of the cuts and bruises

Cholesterol And Heart Disease

There is a cause-and-effect relationship. Cause-and-effect means there is an association, but an association alone does not assure cause-and-effect. Just because the police consistently show up at the scene of a crime doesn't mean that you can later conclude that the police committed the crime. But if we were to use the same statistical reasoning in this police example as modern science uses in the cholesterol-heart disease relationship, we could proceed directly to this ridiculous conclusion without any further thought. If a factor is actually protecting against an unhealthy (and usually unperceived) force, and that factor reliably emerges when that force is present, that factor and not the unhealthy, hidden force will typically get blamed for the damage. This is especially so when the unhealthy force has never really been discovered or recognized. Just like the police at the crime scene, you simply cannot conclude that the paramedics must have initially hurt the victims they are...

Information and Communications

There are circumstances that make management of trauma patients unlike any other medical emergency. When treating trauma patients, the physicians and nurses often have very little information and no medical history for the patients. In the story, Jennifer Kung received only a few pieces of information about John Doe when she spoke to the paramedic in the field. Ben was unaware that no intravenous access had been obtained because John Doe was a drug abuser. Stuart had no idea that John Doe was in critical condition from the information he saw on the posting board. The first notification of an impending patient admission occurs via a call on the radio connection between paramedics located at the injury scene and the on-call trauma surgeon in the trauma center. In the story, the trauma surgeon was occupied in the operating room, so the call was taken by a trauma nurse, Jennifer Kung. The summary information from this communication from the field paramedics is written on a board (Fig....

Shock Trauma Center Medical Student Ben Johnson

Ben Johnson was a final-year medical student. He was very excited at the prospect of working in the trauma center because this would be the first time he would function like a real doctor. It was his first night on call. Everyone was busy in the operating room so he was relieved that there had been no new patients admitted. At 10 15 p.m. there was a loud ring on the emergency phone. Ben's heart raced. Jennifer Kung, a trauma nurse, answered the phone and was getting a report from the paramedics at the injury scene. Jennifer wrote several abbreviated items of summary information on a board where incoming cases are posted for all to see. Ben noticed on the board that the incoming patient was a pedestrian struck by a car. Expected time of arrival was 5 minutes. Jennifer did not know the patient's name. Magically to Ben, nurses, physicians, and technicians appeared from the operating room area, from the group of previously laughing and joking nurses around the coffeemaker, and from the...

Immediate treatment

Whoever sees the patient first, whether it be emergency room staff, the general practitioner, or paramedic, needs to relieve pain, generally with nitrates and an opiate (plus an antiemetic), give oxygen (since arterial desaturation is usual), and give half to one tablet of oral aspirin to be chewed for a rapid antiplatelet effect (since platelets are hyperaggregable in acute myocardial infarction). An ECG can be recorded while this is being instituted in order to make a decision about reperfusion therapy in the initial 15 to 30 min after arrival at the hospital. Telephone or radio transmission of the results of an ECG obtained outside hospital or in transit to the coronary care unit or emergency room can save valuable time.

Jeanne V Linden

Sam Cohen loved his job as a paramedic. It offered the opportunity to truly help people in time of need and posed diverse challenges every day. It also posed a contrast to his stable personal life. He had dated his wife, Donna, when they were in high school, and they had married a few years later. Their sons, Brian, age 6, and Jeremy, age 4, were the joy of their life. Raising children in an urban setting was a challenge, but Sam always made it a point to take them to the park on his one weekend day off. In the emergency department of Liberty Hospital, emergency medicine physician George Johnson had just come on duty. With the good weather, he hoped it would be a quiet day. He was going to get a cup of coffee when paramedics wheeled in a man who looked to be about 30, dressed in jogging shorts and a T-shirt, covered with blood. After examination, George determined that the patient had open fractures of one arm and both legs and also had free blood

Transport categories

Primary mission teams may be called to scenes such as explosions and major road accidents, where they may be working with prehospital support personnel (ambulance officers, paramedics, police). Entrapped patients may require on-site blood and other infusion, anesthesia (local and general), intubation, controlled ventilation, pleural drainage, or limb amputation. The environment may limit access to patients and minimum intervention compatible with safe extrication should be performed, particularly if transit time is under 20 min.
