the neurological outcome were examined. Additionally, data concerning hypotension, hypoxia, length of stay (hospital and intensive care unit) and the number of required early neurosurgical interventions were taken into account.The overall mortality was decreased in three of the fourteen included studies after the implementation of a physician in the prehospital setting. One study found also a decrease in mortality only for patients with a Glasgow Coma Scale of 6-8. Strikingly, two other studies reported higher

542. Missed foot fractures in multiple trauma patients. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Missed foot fractures in multiple trauma patients. Missed or underestimated injuries are one of the central problems in trauma care. Foot injuries can easily be missed because they lay beyond the regularly screened field of a trauma computer tomography scan (CT scan). During primary and secondary survey a careful examination of the extremities often becomes of secondary interest in the severely injured patient.Thirty-four thousand ninety-one multiple trauma patients of the TraumaRegister DGU® (...) diagnosed foot injuries and 144 patients had initially missed foot injuries. Missed foot injuries were especially found in patients with car accidents or fall from ≥3 m. Patients with higher Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) or lower Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) were not significantly more affected by missed foot injuries. Missing foot injuries was also not caused by injury severity or higher age.Our data highlights the need of careful evaluation of the feet during primary and secondary survey particularly

543. Role of automated pupillometry in critically ill patients. (Abstract)

Role of automated pupillometry in critically ill patients. Pupillary examination has fundamental diagnostic and prognostic values in clinical practice. However, pupillary assessment was relied until present on manual, qualitative, examination, using manual flash penlights or lamps. Quantitative examination with the use of automated infrared video-pupillometers allows an objective assessment of several pupillary parameters and may be superior to manual subjective examination. The potential (...) for quantitative pupillometry is multiple in the setting of critical care, for the monitoring and detection of secondary cerebral insults and to assess brainstem dysfunction and early coma outcome prognostication, and in the intra-operative anesthesiology setting, to assess analgesia and opioid requirement. Here, we describe the pupillometry technique and review recent critical care and anesthesiology studies that demonstrate the value and potential clinical utility of quantitative pupillometry

544. Zones matter: Hemodynamic effects of zone 1 vs zone 3 resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta placement in trauma patients. (Abstract)

Zones matter: Hemodynamic effects of zone 1 vs zone 3 resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta placement in trauma patients. Resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) has emerged as a therapy for hemorrhagic shock to limit ongoing bleeding and support proximal arterial pressures. Current REBOA algorithms recommend zone selection based on suspected anatomic location of injury rather than severity of shock. We examined the effects of Zone 1 versus Zone 3 (...) the study period. Of these, 245 underwent REBOA and 99 patients met inclusion criteria. The initial balloon position was Zone 1 in 55 patients, Zone 3 in 36 patients, and unknown or Zone 2 in 8 patients. The change in proximal SBP was greater after REBOA in the Zone 1 group compared to the Zone 3 group (58 ± 4 mmHg vs 41 ± 4 mmHg, P = 0.008). The zone of occlusion was significantly associated with the change in proximal SBP in a linear regression analysis which included initial SBP, Glasgow Coma Scale

545. Early risk stratification of in hospital mortality following a ground level fall in geriatric patients with normal physiological parameters. (Abstract)

Early risk stratification of in hospital mortality following a ground level fall in geriatric patients with normal physiological parameters. The purpose of this study was to identify risk factors of mortality for geriatric patients who fell from ground level at home and had a normal physiological examination at the scene.Patients aged 65 and above, who sustained a ground level fall (GLF) with normal scene Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score 15, systolic blood pressure (SBP) > 90 and <160 mmHg, heart (...) rate ≥ 60 and ≤100 beats per minute) from the 2012-2014 National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB) data sets were included in the study. Patients' characteristics, existing comorbidities [history of smoking, chronic kidney disease (CKD), cerebrovascular accident (CVA), diabetes mellitus (DM), and hypertension (HTN) requiring medication], injury severity scores (ISS), American College of Surgeons' (ACS) trauma center designation level, and outcomes were examined for each case.

in this study. They were divided into development (n = 92) and validation (n = 35) dataset according to their admission time. Mini-mental State Examination (MMSE) was conducted between the third and the sixth month after the onset of stroke. MMSE ≤ 24 was considered as cognitive impairment. Univariate and multivariate logistic regression was used to screen for independent risk factors which correlate with cognitive impairment on the development dataset. A nomogram was built based on Akaike Information (...) Criterion (AIC). Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve and calibration curve on development and validation dataset was drawn with each area under the curves (AUC) calculated. The decision curve analysis was also conducted with the development dataset.The bleeding volume, Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS), and intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) are the most significant risk factors which may cause cognitive impairment both in the univariate and multivariate analysis. The finial model performed good

Acute diffuse edematous-hemorrhagic Epstein-Barr virus meningoencephalitis: A case report. In this study, we presented a rare case of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) meningoencephalitis presented with meningoencephalitis-like symptoms and diffuse edematous hemorrhage.A 77-year-old male patient was admitted to our hospital with fever, headache, confusion, and unconsciousness for 7 days. Physical examination revealed unconsciousness and stiffness of the neck.The final diagnosis was EBV (...) meningoencephalitis.Ganciclovir (two times 350 mg/day, 21 days), methylprednisolone sodium succinate (120 mg, 5 days), and IV immunoglobulins (IV Ig) (0.4 g/kg, 5 days) were given to this patient.But the patient's clinical symptoms did not improve, and he was still in a coma. His family refused to be further diagnosed and discharged. After discharge for 2 months, the patient was in a coma.

and potential risk factors for intracranial haemorrhage.We identified inpatient falls in acute medical wards at Monash Health, a large hospital network in the southeast region of Melbourne in Australia, from the incident reporting system during a 32 month period. We examined the post-fall medical assessment form, neurological observation chart and the diagnostic imaging system for details of the fall and brain CT findings. We used survival analysis to evaluate the timeliness of brain imaging and determined (...) was 0.9%. The factors associated with intracranial haemorrhage were head strike, anticoagulation, loss of consciousness or amnesia, drop in Glasgow Coma Scale and advanced chronic kidney disease.The incidence of intracranial haemorrhage was low as most inpatient falls were at low risk for head injury. Research is needed to determine if guidelines specific for hospital inpatients may reduce unnecessary scans without compromising case detection, and improve timeliness of urgent scans.
