This is less than reported for either the BPS or the CPOT because the feasibility and impact of its use once implemented in clinical practice remain to be investigated. By the time this implementation research is complete, it may be of use in countries/languages where neither the BPS nor CPOT has been validated ( ).

No statistical measure of agreement between nurse and ICU patient scores was reported. Finally, compared with seriously ill patients’ self-reports, surrogates correctly identified pain presence 74% of the time and pain severity 53% of the time, with a tendency to overestimate pain intensity ( ).

65. Multidisciplinary guidelines for the management of paediatric tracheostomy emergencies

differences in paediatric management. Early versions were discussed among the Working Party and our multidisciplinary colleagues, and were tested using high‐fidelity medical simulation at local bespoke meetings using faculty and volunteers. Key steps were designed to address contributing factors to poorly managed emergencies, which include lack of access to information or emergency algorithms, loss of situational awareness and poor communication , . We recognised the role that simulation could play (...) in further refining the algorithm key steps and have previously described testing versions of the algorithm in over 450 volunteer healthcare professional encounters at national and international meetings, where the algorithm was also formally presented . We were able to demonstrate significant improvements in performance metrics when multidisciplinary responders followed the algorithm in similar scenarios. Scenarios were completed more quickly, the simulated children were less hypoxic and more candidates

examined the role of beta-blockers in patients with heart failure, 95% of whom had a reduced ejection fraction. This investigation showed that the survival benefit for beta-blockers is associated with the magnitude of the reduction in heart rate but not the drug dosage [10].

treatment for AIS patients re- ceiving NOACs must balance the anticoagulant effect of these agents and the ICH risk associated with reperfusion strategies. As has been mentioned previously, routinely performed blood coagulation studies do not reliably ex- clude a significant plasma concentration of the NOACs. Another difficulty in a time-sensitive setting is that the more sensitive blood tests are either not routinely avail- able or have an unacceptably long delay to results. In experimental studies (...) study 76 comprised 78 NOAC-treated patients undergoing intravenous throm- bolysis or intra-arterial therapy a median of 13 hours after the last NOAC dose compared with 441 warfarin- treated patients and 8938 on no anticoagulants.

80. Childhood and Adolescent Adversity and Cardiometabolic Outcomes: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association

adversity may increase the risk of cardiometabolic (and other) diseases: behavioral, mental health, and biological. Behavioral Factors Evidence suggests that childhood adversity is associated with adverse health behaviors that increase the risk of cardiometabolic disease, including smoking, overeating, consumption of energy-dense foods, and inactivity. , , The association of childhood adversity with these behaviors was first tested by Felitti et al. In their retrospective ACE study, Felitti et al (...) childbirth would also capture intergenerational adversity and perinatal programming. Limited Identification of Mechanisms As discussed, childhood adversity may provoke unhealthy behaviors and poor mental health or produce neurobiological alterations that initiate relevant pathophysiological processes. Few studies have explicitly tested the mechanisms linking childhood adversity and cardiometabolic disease with comprehensive mediation models. Moreover, no study of which we are aware has tested a range
