Predictors of abnormal brain computed tomography findings in patients with acute altered mental status in the emergency department
Objective Brain computed tomography (CT) is commonly performed to diagnose acute altered mental status (AMS), a critically important symptom in many serious diseases. However, negative CT results are common, which result in unnecessary CT use. Therefore, this study aimed to dete...
Is it possible to reduce intra-hospital transport time for computed tomography evaluation in critically ill cases using the Easy Tube Arrange Device?
Objective Patients are often transported within the hospital, especially in cases of critical illness for which computed tomography (CT) is performed. Since increased transport time increases the risks of complications, reducing transport time is important for patient safety. Th...
Cervical collar makes difficult airway: a simulation study using the LEMON criteria
Objective Endotracheal intubation is extremely difficult to perform in patients wearing a cervical collar for a head and neck injury. Therefore, we analyzed actual measurements using the look externally, evaluate 3-3-2, Mallampati score, obstruction, and neck mobility (LEMON) cr...
Pre-hospital i-gel blind intubation for trauma: a simulation study
Objective This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of i-gel blind intubation (IGI) as a rescue device for definitive airway management in ground intubation for pre-hospital trauma patients. Methods A prospective randomized crossover study was conducted with 18 paramedics to ex...

Long-term changes in computed tomography and ultrasound utilization in a pediatric emergency department
Objective Many studies have proposed reducing unnecessary use of computed tomography (CT), and ongoing studies in pediatric populations are aiming to decrease radiation dosages whenever possible. We aimed to evaluate the long-term changes in the utilization patterns of CT and ul...
Incidence and characteristics of major bleeding among rivaroxaban users with renal disease and nonvalvular atrial fibrillation
Objective Patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (AF) and renal disease (RD) who receive anticoagulation therapy appear to be at greater risk of major bleeding (MB) than AF patients without RD. As observed in past studies, anticoagulants are frequently withheld from AF pa...
Quality improvement activity for improving pain management in acute extremity injuries in the emergency department
Objective The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of a quality improvement activity for pain management in patients with extremity injury in the emergency department (ED). Methods This was a retrospective interventional study. The patient group consisted of t...

Delayed massive hemothorax requiring surgery after blunt thoracic trauma over a 5-year period: complicating rib fracture with sharp edge associated with diaphragm injury
Delayed massive hemothorax requiring surgery is relatively uncommon and can potentially be life-threatening. Here, we aimed to describe the nature and cause of delayed massive hemothorax requiring immediate surgery. Over 5 years, 1,278 consecutive patients were admitted after bl...

A novel method to cease traumatic urethral bleeding
Urethral bleeding due to trauma is a well-studied and often self-limiting condition. However, existing evidence regarding effective management of massive hemorrhage is limited. Intermittent penile compression and continuous perineal pressure are methods commonly used to control ...
