PCRF Journal Club: Comparing Direct vs. Video Laryngoscopy

PCRF Journal Club: Comparing Direct vs. Video Laryngoscopy

Article Jul 03, 2017

Register now for the May 8 PCRF Journal Club podcast, which features special guest Dr. Seth A. Brown who, with his co-authors, recently published a qualitative study examining ways to improve pediatric EMS education.

"Improving Pediatric Education for Emergency Medical Services Providers: A Qualitative Study" is one of the rare, qualitative EMS research studies available in the current literature. Many of the results are thought-provoking, some are intuitive and all are interesting. This is a fantastic opportunity to review novel research methods that were utilized to improve our field.

The current body of research suggests EMS practitioners may have knowledge gaps regarding care for the pediatric patient. Kudos to Brown et. al. for conducting a qualitative study to assess perceived training deficits in pediatric emergency care. This research also identifies interventions to improve pediatric education for EMS practitioners.

Airway Management in Disaster Response: A Manikin Study Comparing Direct and Video Laryngoscopy for Endotracheal Intubation by Prehospital Providers in Level C Personal Protective Equipment.
By Yousif S, Machan JT, Alaska Y, Suner S

This month is dedicated to EMS disas­ter response research and follow-up to our January-February podcasts on airways, and the use of video laryngoscopy. We will examine per­formance in airway management when using two types of video laryngos­copy devices and direct laryngoscopy using a Macintosh blade.

Please join members of the Prehospital Care Research Forum and others in discussing this topic.

2017 International Scientific EMS Symposium​, October 19, Las Vegas, NV

PCRF is hosting a new event at EMS World Expo, the International Scientific EMS Symposium. This scientific program aims to highlight the most important EMS research of the year from across the globe, as well as provide a new venue in which EMS providers at all levels and from diverse nations can present original peer-reviewed posters and oral abstract sessions. This symposium brings a new level of academic rigor and evidence-based practice to EMS World Expo and the prehospital care profession.

From novices to experts, participants will leave the International Scientific EMS Symposium with cutting-edge knowledge and a new appreciation of how research can inform and improve the best-available evidence in EMS at the street level. Abstracts are being accepted for consideration for the Symposium through August 31. See https://www.cpc.mednet.ucla.edu/pcrf/
