Is Coding of Penetrating & Blunt Trauma Arrest Patients Warranted?

first_imgThe Eagles group agreed that a position paper should be developed in a careful and deliberate manner, noting that crews have to consider many variables before the termination of CPR, including initial findings and age of the patient. Slovis is a professor of emergency medicine and medicine and chairman of the department of emergency medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. Slovis serves as the medical director of the Nashville Fire Department, the NFD Paramedic/EMS Bureau and the Nashville International Airport. Corey Slovis, MD, FACP, FACEP, FAAEM, reported results of a recent survey 32 of his Eagle colleagues participated in regarding their coding/resuscitation of traumatic cardiac arrests and told the Eagles at the Eagles conference that he feels a position paper is warranted to reduce or stop the unnecessary resuscitation of selected, severely traumatized patients. An article in Resuscitation recommended that field crew confronted with traumatic cardiac arrest should: “¢ Try to control hemorrhage; “¢ Splint the pelvis/fractures; and “¢ Manage airway and oxygenate. Slovis reported that research has shown that, even though a small number of patients in traumatic cardiac survive, 75% of them have significant neurological deficits and reduced quality of life. Eagles leader Paul Pepe, MD, pointed out that there are circulatory traumatic cardiac arrests and patients who survive the trauma but succumb to cardiac-related arrest. He pointed out that at least one article in a noted emergency medicine journal recommended that crews perform up to 15 minutes of CPR before code pronouncement. His question was: Why are we doing resuscitation on patients who have no blood circulating in their systems? He also noted that research has showed little benefit of epinephrine in medical cases, let alone a traumatic cardiac arrest. The results of Slovis’ Eagle survey showed that 1/3 of the respondents’ systems still coded blunt and penetrating trauma codes with limited resuscitative success.last_img read more

It was trial by fire for both of you in different ways. Tell us what happened. Kristine: Well, I was doing Carol for a very brief time, it seems like now.Julie: Did you ever get out of the rehearsal room?Kristine: I did do a tech. I did do some blood—not to give anything away with your wonderful blood stuff—but I did get to do the speech. Nathan always tortures her by saying, “There was a big laugh here!” We never had any audience. I don’t know who that big laugh was!Julie: I think it’s easier for me because I’d never seen Krissy do it. I got to come into it completely clean. Whereas you had been rehearsing for six weeks—and prior to that, some sort of a workshop kind of situation.Kristine: That was just around the table.Julie: She had to get Carol out of her ear, and get Andrea out of her ear in order to find her own way into Janice.Kristine: We just jumped on top of Nathan, and he carried us over the finish line. I give him so much credit for that.Julie: He is amazing.Kristine: The tea-party scene, when we’re all together, was the hardest for me was to learn. To not listen to Julie, but always listen to Julie.Julie: Oh, that must have been so freaky. I mean, ultimately, we can’t remember [the rehearsal process]. I just remember that one time in your dressing room when we were both crying.Kristine: I was like, “It can’t be seen!” This can’t be seen.Julie: [sobbing] We can’t do it!Kristine: I’ll never work again! You know, that kind of feeling. Kristine: Yeah, she’s a bit of a scaredy cat, which we all are.Julie: Yeah—and in a panic!Is it challenging to find the energy to be in a panic?Kristine: The play invites 110 percent from the top.Julie: There’s a sense of overwhelm for the audience the minute the curtain goes up.Kristine: There is the time pressure, you know? There is an inauguration happening. This war is cyclical. It’s constantly happening. Who’s in, who’s on first? You just kind of tap-dance your way to solving things—getting all these bodies sorted.Julie: [Director George C. Wolfe] also did a brilliant thing where he added a cue: When we leave the stage, you hear the sound of like a door opening and what’s going on outside. It’s just screaming.Kristine: Chaos.Julie: We’re functioning in this place, but the raging tragedy goes on all around us.Do you get desensitized to the tragedy of it?Kristine: There are times when you laugh at them, and there are times when they are profoundly sad. The bodies remind you of the cost.Julie: When I see them for the first time every night, they are very horrifying to me. I’m always just crying as soon as he takes the sheet off of the women and children. We always say, like on the knife’s edge, it’s crazy, it’s silly, and then it’s also just all the guts. All the guts are there. After a whirlwind process of getting Taylor Mac’s new play Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus on its feet, Tony-nominated stars Kristine Nielsen and Julie White are basking in the 2019 awards season. When Andrea Martin was injured and had to withdraw from the production, Nielsen took on her role as beleaguered maid Janice, while White stepped into Nielsen’s previous role as hysterical midwife Carol. Broadway.com sat down with the acclaimed actresses (this is Nielsen’s second Tony nom and White’s third; she won in 2007 for The Little Dog Laughed) to chat about the dark comedy’s chaos, carnage and (ahem!) cocks.What is it like going to work every day surrounded by corpses and penises?Kristine: It’s heaven. [Laughs.]Julie: We love our set. We love our set designer Santo Laquasto. Our set is filled with terrifying—and yet kind of funny-looking—dead bodies, all of them with their dicks out. So, it’s pretty nutty.Kristine: They are like dolls. We’ve named some of them. Isn’t it Mr. Peep? What’s his name? It’s the one that hits Nathan so graciously every night in the face? Mr. Peepers or something. There is one that looks like Abraham Lincoln.Julie: There’s one on the ground that looks so much like Bernie Sanders. She’s cleaning up after them, so she’s real matter of fact with them, but my character is freaked out by them, so I do a lot of screaming.Kristine: You like the soldiers.Julie: I like the handsome ones.What were your first impressions of this play when you first took a look at it?Kristine: My first impression of this play was that it was a lot of words.Julie: Kristine did a workshop of it over two years ago, and it was double the play. Did it have an act break?Kristine: No. It was just long, long, long.Julie: But [playwright] Taylor [Mac] was coming off a play that lasted 24 hours, so he doesn’t think about time in the same way. Kristine: I just love doing this because I think it’s about the world, without being literally about specific things in the world. It’s the currents that are everywhere. People in England could see this. People in Venezuela could see it. People in Spain. I mean, all the chaos that is out there that is just the time.Julie: So true. I feel so enormously proud to be in it.Kristine: We’re showing the world. I had someone who came and said, “You know what this play actually showed me the most? Hope.” We’re going to survive it—all this chaos that’s out there! We’re going to get past it because it’s cyclical. We’re going to be OK. There’ll be a Janice and a Gary and a Carol who will make a difference. They’ll make that one little step. Kristine: I think you’re right there. Ultimately, it sort of pared itself out. But that was the first impression. It was like, “This is a very smart play. I’m not smart enough, maybe.” I always [feel that way about] Taylor. I sit with a dictionary—I think I know what a word means, and then I have to look it up again to make sure I really know what it means. Sometimes you think you know something, and you don’t. He’s so clever.Julie: The language is incredible. Do you have an actual dictionary? Because you know you can just do that on your phone.Kristine: I actually have a dictionary.Let’s not scare the audience—you don’t actually need to know any big words or even anything about Shakespeare to see Gary.Julie: No, because it’s also just a bunch of clowning. It’s all in there: the humor, the highbrow and the low.Kristine: Laugh, cry, laugh, cry.Julie: And, you know, fart jokes.Kristine: Lots of those.Julie: It’s all in there. It’s like the parables in the Bible—you could take them at their face value, or the longer you thought about it, there was something else in there. I find it like that. And because I had a very short rehearsal period, I just had to make choices and go. But as it’s settling into me, I’m like, “I get this!” Oh, man. I love that.Kristine: I like to say, it never settles in, Julie. Can I just say that? Every night it’s like working with an animal. It’s a new, wonderful experience. Star Files Julie White in Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus (Photo: Julieta Cervantes) Show Closed This production ended its run on June 16, 2019 Julie White And now you both have Tony nominations.Kristine: I know! Cut to— What happened?!Julie: That’s right. We don’t need more than five days’ rehearsal.Kristine: That’s it! Any more and you won’t get that Tony!Julie: Way to go, nominators! The only place they kind of screwed up was that they didn’t they nominate Nathan. But he already won it in my mind. Come see the play. It’s an extraordinary performance.Let’s talk about these characters. What would Janice, for example, be like in a different work environment?Kristine: Well, I think she’s a little anal retentive. She’d have to be cleaning. Wherever she is would be neat; everything set perfectly.Julie: She’s a boss.Kristine: If she were in a modern thing, she’d be one of those people who clean up murder scenes. What a dreary, horrible job—but she’d do it efficiently. It would be spotless, and she would be proud of that afterward. She can sort of compartmentalize all the ugly, and not deal with it. She could also be one of those mean nurses who’d be like, “Stop crying! Suck it up!” Or maybe the home aide from hell.Julie: I think Janice should run the world, frankly. By the end of the play, she’s going to go off and run the world.What about Carol? Julie: I have a tendency to make all my characters be some aspect of me. Very early on, I thought about myself riding in the bus to the Women’s March, and how depressed I was. I was thinking, “This seems stupid.” But then somebody gave me a hand-knit hat, and I put it on, and I started walking. And everybody had these hilarious and touching and amazing homemade signs, and there were little kids in a bunch of different versions of this knitted cap—all that pink. There were so many of us, you couldn’t march anywhere. We finally just yelled, “Let’s march! Let’s march!” But we were basically stuck over by the Porta-Potties. I feel that Carol wants to do the right thing, but she doesn’t know how.

He lets us know.LEXINGTON, Ky. — Three keys and a prediction for Kentucky’s game against Florida:Defensive coordinator/linebackers coach D.J. Eliot gave instruction during Kentucky football practice in Lexington, Ky. Aug. 24, 2013Defensive coordinator/linebackers coach D.J. Eliot gave instruction during Kentucky football practice in Lexington, Ky. Aug. 24, 20131) Establish the run: Kentucky almost pulled off the upset of Florida in 2014 on the arm of quarterback Patrick Towles, who threw for 369 yards and three touchdowns in the three-overtime loss, but it’s the UK run game that bears watch early Saturday. For Towles and the Kentucky receivers to have success, Stanley “Boom” Williams and the rest of the Wildcat running backs have to keep Florida’s defense honest.The task won’t be easy either. Through two games, Florida leads the Southeastern Conference in rushing defense (25.5 yards per game). The Gators held East Carolina to minus-13 rushing yards last week. “It’s a stout group,” Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops said of Florida’s run defense. It’s week to week, right? We know what we are going to get in this league. It’s always a challenge, but that’s why we’re working hard to have some balance.”Kentucky Football | Mikel Horton gains confidence, gives Cats powerful backfield option2) Third-quarter blues: Through two games Kentucky’s offense has looked dangerous enough to score on anyone in the first half, but in the majority of the second half of both games the Wildcats struggled to even earn first downs, let alone points. Kentucky outscored Louisiana-Lafayette and South Carolina by a combined 48-14 margin in the first half but was outscored 41-18 in the second half of those games.To end a 28-game losing streak to Florida, Kentucky’s offense will likely need to put a complete four-quarter performance together. Offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson thinks his unit is close to filling that potential after reviewing the South Carolina game film. “Ultimately we’re going to press this week to play all four quarters obviously,” Dawson said. “That’s the goal. But I think if you sit there and keep stressing it to the point to where you make a problem out of it, you’re going to have a problem.”3) QB run game: Kentucky’s defense has struggled to stop the run in any form through two games – the Wildcats rank last in the SEC in rushing defense (221 yards per game) – but D.J. Eliot’s squad will need to pay particular attention to the quarterback run game this week. Florida quarterbacks Will Grier and Treon Harris combined for 108 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown in the first two games. Kentucky surrendered 93 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns to quarterbacks in its first two games.Kentucky Football | Garrett Johnson, Jojo Kemp and Co. relish shot at home-state UF GatorsHarris, who will likely come off the bench Saturday, is considered the more dangerous runner of the Florida quarterback duo, but both he and Grier have averaged more than six yards per carry this season. For the third consecutive week Kentucky will likely face multiple quarterbacks in the same game. How the Wildcats deal with that rotation will go a long way to determining the likelihood of an upset.PREDICTION: Kentucky 38, Florida 35.If Kentucky is ever going to beat Florida, 2015 might be the year. The Gators are still learning under a new staff while Kentucky has plenty of momentum entering the matchup. In the event of a win Saturday, Kentucky fans rushing the Commonwealth Stadium field will find themselves in the thick of the SEC East race.Email Jon Hale at [email protected] Follow him on Twitter @JonHale_CJ.

LIVE TV First Published: 31st May, 2020 16:16 IST Read: BCCI Nominates Rohit Sharma For Khel Ratna; Ishant, Shikhar & Deepti For Arjuna Award”I have questioned and demanded clarification on the inflated and extravagant bills of air travel and why should Indian Olympic Association will bear the extravagant bills and cost of the air travel. This office-bearer misbehaved with me in front of President – Indian Olympic Association and Chairman – Finance Committee on raising the issue of extravagant bills of International air travel.This personal rancour and antipathy towards me by this office bearer of Indian Olympic Association has left with no option but to resign from the post of Member – Finance Committee to maintain my self-respect.” He further said: “It was further learnt that this office bearer then paid the bills on his own and not through IOA which meant that the questions and queries raised by me is of right nature.

DOT drops proposal to force airlines to disclose bag fees

first_img FILE- In this Jan. 30, 2017, file photo, luggage sits on a baggage claim carousel at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Atlanta. The Transportation Department is dropping an Obama administration proposal that would have required airlines to disclose checked and carry-on bag fees at the start of a ticket purchase rather than later. (AP Photo/David Goldman, File) WASHINGTON | An Obama administration proposal that would have required airlines disclose checked and carry-on bag fees at the start of a ticket purchase rather than later is being dropped by the Department of Transportation.The department said in a notice posted online Thursday that it is withdrawing the proposed rule, along with a second, early-stage rulemaking to force airlines to disclose more information about their revenue from fees charged for extra services, because the rules would have been “of limited public benefit.” It also said airlines would incur “significant costs” if required to report their revenue from fees for services like early boarding or extra legroom.Work on the proposals was frozen shortly after President Donald Trump took office. Airlines are already required to disclose bag fees, but critics say the information is often hidden until after consumers have taken several steps toward purchasing a ticket and isn’t always clear. Travel agents and websites that sell tickets also complain that airlines sometimes withhold information on fees, preventing third-party sellers from providing consumers with the full cost of the airfare.Airlines for America, an airline industry trade association, praised the administration and Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao for “recognizing that airlines, like all other businesses, need the freedom to determine which third-parties they do business with and how best to market, display and sell their products.”Congressional Democrats and consumer groups decried the withdrawals, saying they would have protected airline passengers by providing greater transparency of airfares and fees.Since 2008, when airlines began introducing new and higher “ancillary” fees for services such as checking baggage and making changes to reservations, the true cost of flying has become more opaque, the Consumers Union said in a statement. Shoppers are being denied the basic ability to compare costs as they are shopping, as some airlines withhold critical pricing on fares and fees, both from their own websites and from third-party ticket sellers such as online travel agency sites, the group said.“The administration is turning its back on airline passengers just before families are about to head home for the holidays,” said Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida, the senior Democrat on the Senate committee that oversees the airline industry.Charles Leocha, chairman of Travelers United, said passengers have no one to protect them from unfair airline practices except the Transportation Department, since no other federal or state agency regulates air carriers.“It is a dereliction of duty for the DOT to stop its review of unfair and deceptive pricing of ancillary fees, which make it impossible for consumers to comparison shop for the best costs of airfare,” he said.Besides scuttling the fee transparency proposals, the Transportation Department has also failed to issue regulations mandated by Congress last year to require airlines to refund fees charged for checked bags that are delayed and to ensure families with young children can sit together on planes, Nelson said.last_img read more

Damp courses rule the day

first_imgPSC Golf from Siam Country Resort PattayaTuesday, Nov. 10, Crystal Bay – StablefordTuesday we went with 3 groups to Crystal Bay and played the A and C courses.  The condition of the course was not too bad but around the greens the soil was very soft and the greens themselves were not very good and slow.  Besides that, the speed of the putting surfaces on the A-course was completely different from the C-course.  Nevertheless we still had a good day.  Neil Harvey (H/cap 16) was the winner on the day with 36 stableford points.  Jonathan Pratt (10) and Willem Lasonder (20) played a strong front nine, but fell back on the back nine and came in second and third with 35 and 34 points respectively.The near pins went to Jonathan Pratt (2), George Gamble and Willem Lasonder.Thursday, Nov. 12, Plutaluang – Stableford We went to Plutaluang on Thursday where it had been a long time since we last visited and we found the condition of the course to be disappointing.  The layout was wet and there is a lot of maintenance ongoing at the moment.  The weather was hot and dry and we managed to finish just before the rain started.Willem Lasonder, Martin Hayes and Neil Harvey.The winner on the day was Willem Lasonder with 37 points.  Martin Hayes (18) came in second with 35, beating Willie Hogg (28) on the count back.The near pins were claimed by Neil Harvey, Richard Schuttenhelm and Willie Hogg.Note: Siam Country Resort Pattaya, Restaurant & Bar plays on Tuesday & Thursday.  As a PSC affiliated venue we welcome ALL golfers, including ladies & seniors (>60s) who have opted for the “Silver” tee option.  Call 089 2535440 (Willem Lasonder) for scheduling or enquiries.last_img read more

It’s strange that we are playing them after so long. We should have played them more often. I’m very excited because they are a quality opponent and they have always been a respected side in Asia. To face them at their home is going to be a tough challenge but this is a challenge that we should face now. Our form away from home hasn’t been particularly very good. This is a great opportunity for us to take a good account of ourselves,” the Bengaluru FC captain said.Advertisement India will take on China tomorrow in the picturesque Suzhou Olympic Sports Centre at 5:05 p.m. IST.

STEPHEN KENNY SIGNS FOR GALWAY UNITED

first_imgGalway United are delighted to announce the signing of Stephen Kenny.The 24-year-old midfielder moves to Eamonn Deacy Park after spending two seasons on Shannonside with Limerick FC, making a total of 55 appearances for the Markets Field outfit, scoring 6 goals.The winger also counts Cork City, Waterford United and Cobh Ramblers among his former clubs.Kenny will rejoin former teammate Robbie Williams at Eamonn Deacy Park, the pair were mainstays in Limerick’s First Division winning squad in 2016 under Martin Russell.Shane Keegan was impressed by Kenny’s performances in a Limerick jersey last season and he believes the skilful midfielder will add further quality to United’s squad.“When Stephen played against us last season, he caused us awful problems. He was excellent against us on the night that Limerick knocked us out of the FAI Cup and had a really good game against us at the Markets Field towards the end of the season.“He was a standout name for me. He’s very adaptable and could probably play in three or four positions, right across from the wing to the middle of the park. I think his delivery is superb.“There were no issues with coming back to First Division level, Stephen wants to come here and do everything he can to go and win another First Division title. He has real hunger to do so.“He’s a really creative, technically excellent player. When Stephen gets his head up, he just seems to be able to put a ball where he wants to and is another quality addition to our squad.”Kenny has set his sights on winning another First Division title in 2018.He told www.galwayunitedfc.ie: “It’s similar to when I joined Limerick from Cobh, my ambition is to win the league, just like I did that year with Limerick and try and play in every game.“From listening to Shane throughout the off-season, his ambitions were quite similar to Martin Russell’s when he was trying to entice me to join Limerick, so that was one of the main reasons I decided to join Galway United.“I played a lot of football over the last two years, I got a lot of assists and scored a few goals, so I’m just looking to bring that to Galway this year and hopefully we can get the job done.” print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email —last_img read more
