7. Chest ultrasonography versus supine chest radiography for diagnosis of pneumothorax in trauma patients in the emergency department. (Abstract)

Chest ultrasonography versus supine chest radiography for diagnosis of pneumothorax in trauma patients in the emergency department. Chest X-ray (CXR) is a longstanding method for the diagnosis of pneumothorax but chest ultrasonography (CUS) may be a safer, more rapid, and more accurate modality in trauma patients at the bedside that does not expose the patient to ionizing radiation. This may lead to improved and expedited management of traumatic pneumothorax and improved patient safety (...) and clinical outcomes.To compare the diagnostic accuracy of chest ultrasonography (CUS) by frontline non-radiologist physicians versus chest X-ray (CXR) for diagnosis of pneumothorax in trauma patients in the emergency department (ED). To investigate the effects of potential sources of heterogeneity such as type of CUS operator (frontline non-radiologist physicians), type of trauma (blunt vs penetrating), and type of US probe on test accuracy.We conducted a comprehensive search of the following electronic

Selective episiotomy versus no episiotomy for severe perineal trauma: a systematic review with meta-analysis. We hypothesized whether a non-episiotomy protocol or administration of selective episiotomy as an intrapartum intervention would modify the incidence of obstetric anal sphincter injuries (OASIS).We registered this systematic review with the PROSPERO database (CRD42018111018). Prospective randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were included from databases until February 2019. The primary (...) outcome was OASIS, and the secondary outcomes were any perineal trauma, duration of the second stage of labor, instrumental delivery, and post-partum hemorrhage. The risk of bias (Cochrane Handbook) and the Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development and Evaluations (GRADE) criteria were used to assess the RCTs.A total of 1,833 results (PubMed 650, SCOPUS 1,144, Cochrane Library 33, LILACS 6) were obtained.

Perioperative cardiac arrest and mortality in trauma patients: A systematic review of observational studies. Factors that influence the occurrence of perioperative cardiac arrest (CA) and its outcomes in trauma patients are not well known. The novelty of our study lies in the performance of a systematic review conducted worldwide on the occurrence of perioperative CA and/or mortality in trauma patients.A systematic review was performed to identify observational studies that reported (...) the occurrence of CA and/or mortality due to trauma and CA and/or mortality rates in trauma patients up to 24 h postoperatively. We searched the MEDLINE, EMBASE, LILACS and SciELO databases through January 29, 2020.Perioperative period.The primary outcomes evaluated were data on the epidemiology of perioperative CA and/or mortality in trauma patients.Nine studies were selected, with the first study being published in 1994 and the most recent being published in 2019.

A Systematic Review of Trauma Interventions in Native Communities. American Indian/Alaska Native and First Nations communities suffer from health disparities associated with multiple forms of trauma exposure. Culturally appropriate interventions are needed to heal current and historical trauma wounds. Although there are evidence-based trauma interventions for other populations, few have been implemented or evaluated with Native communities. Understanding the extant research on trauma (...) interventions in Native communities is crucial for advancing science and filling gaps in the evidence base, and for meeting the needs of underserved people. In this systematic review of the literature on trauma interventions in Native communities in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, we identified 15 studies representing 10 interventions for historical and/or current trauma. These studies involved the community to some extent in developing or culturally adapting the interventions

Pediatric Trauma Triage: A Pediatric Trauma Society Research Committee Systematic Review. Significant variability exists in the triage of injured children with most systems using mechanism of injury and/or physiologic criteria. It is not well-established if existing triage criteria predict the need for intervention or impact morbidity and mortality. This study evaluated existing evidence for pediatric trauma triage. Questions defined a priori were: 1) Do prehospital trauma triage criteria (...) reduce mortality? 2) Do prehospital trauma scoring systems predict outcomes? 3) Do trauma center activation criteria predict outcomes? 4) Do trauma center activation criteria predict need for procedural or operative interventions? 5) Do trauma bay pediatric trauma scoring systems predict outcomes. 6) What secondary triage criteria for transfer of children exist?A structured, systematic review was conducted, and multiple databases were queried using search terms related to pediatric trauma triage
