Emergency Medicine is a specialty which closely reflects societal challenges and consequences of public policy decisions. The emergency department specifically deals with social injustice, health and economic disparities, violence, substance abuse, and disaster preparedness and response. This journal focuses on how emergency care affects the health of the community and population, and conversely, how these societal challenges affect the composition of the patient population who seek care in the emergency department. The development of better systems to provide emergency care, including technology solutions, is critical to enhancing population health. ...

A hospitals capacity and preparedness is one of the important parts of disaster planning. Hospital-related incidents, a new phenomenon in Swedish healthcare, may lead to ambulance diversions, increased waiting time at emergency departments and treatment delay along with deterioration of disaster management and surge capacity. We aimed to identify the causes and impacts of hospital-related incidents in Region Västra Götaland (western region of Sweden). The regional registry at the Prehospital and Disaster Medicine Center was reviewed (2006-2008). The number of hospital-related incidents and its causes were analyzed. There were an increasing number of hospital-related incidents mainly caused by emergency departments overcrowdings, the lack of beds at ordinary wards and/or intensive care units and technical problems at the radiology departments. These incidents resulted in ambulance diversions and reduced the prehospital capacity as well as endangering the patient safety. Besides emergency department
Similar to other branches of medicine, disaster medicine must possess a scientific basis. To date, there is no evidence-based literature that clearly defines the best medical response principles, concepts, structure and processes in the disaster setting7191197. The DMR is only as good as the assumptions on which it is based. Many of these assumptions are incorrect and/or are not based on systematically collected evidence102103198. Much of what is currently known about DMR results from descriptive studies and expert opinion7102. These insights are important, but lack the impact and the extrapolation power of conclusions drawn from objective data. It is not always easy to draw general conclusions based on single-centre studies, as different outcomes have been used, inclusion criteria vary, and structural, organizational and cultural differences among medical response systems may further hinder this process199. However, there is an increasing awareness among the speciality for the need to collect ...

The second resolution introduced by Mr. Brooks and Robbie Tester, LifeForce Pre-Hospital Care, Event and Disaster Medicine and Regional Operations Center administrator, was the proposal to consolidate operations of the LifeForce Communication Center, Chattanooga MedComm, (Ground EMS transport service communications operation) and the Erlanger Patient Logistics operations (transfer and bed placement) into one location. Currently the Patient Logistics center, which houses Erlangers transfer center and bed placement operations, is located on the first floor of the central wing. The LifeForce flight operations and Chattanooga MedComm Center are on the fourth floor of the main parking garage. Mr. Teeter said the project "will create a state-of-the-art consolidated operations center fully focused on patient acceptance, transport, transfers, capacity and throughput." He added that this consolidation would enable Erlanger to become a true "one call" center for patients, and the regions "only choice" ...
AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO THINKS THAT THIS YEARS FLU IS THE WORST EVER?!?…. Apparently not, because everybody around me says so. I am usually immune to any colds/flus; but this year I already got sick TWICE!! Once in January, the second one just recently in March. The recent one was so bad that I had to take a couple days off work! Apparently the initial few days following infection, your "breathing" can infect anyone around you because you generate "infectious aerosols" that remain suspended in the air for a very long time. Cant expose my clients to that!! But the truth of the matter is the flu virus is "one of the most changeable viruses we know and its subtly different every year" (quote by Dr. Paul Biddinger, director of the center for Disaster Medicine.) Vaccines need to be changed every year to try and match the strains that the experts are guessing that will be dominant. Its kind of like forecasting the next fashion trend, isnt it?... Why do we often get colds during the winter?… ...

International Family Medicine physicians are family physicians that specialize in working with under-served populations in resource-poor environments, often in developing nations. These physicians face the challenge of diagnosing patients without advanced laboratory or imaging techniques. Because of limited access to medications and specialists, International Family Medicine physicians must have flexible treatment strategies and a broad scope of practice. Peter Parker, MD was one of the earliest full time American medical missionaries in 1834. He opened an ophthalmology hospital in China. Many physicians have worked in developing nations over the years. Surgeons and primary care physicians alike have donated their time or their entire lives to needy populations in the world. Modern Organizations such as Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières) organize physicians from around the world to provide disaster medicine and relief work during times of extreme need or natural disasters. ...

Biodosimetry is a method for measuring the dose of radiation to individuals using biological markers such as chromosome damage. Following mass casualty events, it is important to provide this information rapidly in order to assist with the medical management of potentially exposed casualties. Currently, the gold standard for biodosimetry is the dicentric chromosome assay, which accurately estimates the dose from the number of dicentric chromosomes in lymphocytes. To increase throughput of analysis following a largescale mass casualty event, this assay has been adapted for use on the imaging flow cytometer. This chapter describes the methods for the identification and quantification of mono-and multicentric chromosomes using the imaging flow cytometer.. ...
This is a nationally recognized program designed to teach non-medical people, the everyday members of the community, the importance of stopping hemorrhage.. The multiple public tragedies that have occurred in the past few years throughout the U.S. have motivated the Hartford Consensus to bring together leaders from law enforcement, the federal government, and the medical community to improve survival rates from manmade or natural mass casualty events. This inspired us to take part in the cause. "Stop the Bleed" is a nationally recognized program designed to teach non-medical people, the everyday members of the community, the importance of stopping hemorrhage. In addition, it teaches the skills necessary to control and if possible, stop bleeding in people with traumatic injuries.. The goal of this training is to provide an immediate response to bleeding when trained responders or a first aid kit is not available. There are numerous reasons why everyone at any organization should make a priority ...

The student-run Wake Forest Emergency Medical Services (EMS) team will participate in a mass casualty drill to provide invaluable hand-on scenario training in the event of a serious accident or on-campus emergency.
Discussion. Burns , 20% TBSA are considered "severe" in the setting of a mass casualty incident, and seven patients admitted to VABS as a result of the bushfires had what is defined as a severe burn injury. To put this in context, an average of 35 patients a year in the state of Victoria received burns of , 20% TBSA in the years 2000-2006.15. The requirement for ICU beds when treating burn patients is frequently the limiting factor in the acute response to mass casualty incidents,16 as patients with airway injury or extensive burns necessitating large doses of opiates for analgesia require intubation and ventilation. The acute creation of 10 additional ICU ventilator beds at The Alfred has been documented elsewhere.1. Disaster plans focus on the triage and distribution of casualties to hospitals. While it has been increasingly recognised in recent years that burns patients require large amounts of resources - human, infrastructural and consumable - what this actually means in terms of capacity ...

Healthcare workers who have received disaster preparedness education are more likely to report a greater understanding of disaster preparedness. However, research indicates that current nursing curricula do not adequately prepare nurses to respond to disasters. This is the first study to assess Asia-Pacific nurses perceptions about their level of disaster knowledge, skills, and preparedness. A cross-sectional survey was conducted with 757 hospital and community nurses in seven Asia-Pacific countries. Data were collected using the modified Disaster Preparedness Evaluation Tool. Participants were found to have overall low-to-moderate levels of disaster knowledge, skills and preparedness, wherein important gaps were identified. A majority of the variance in disaster preparedness scores was located at the level of the individual respondent, not linked to countries or institutions. Multilevel random effects modelling identified disaster experience and education as significant factors of positive ...

However, these skills are difficult to learn and maintain. We tested the hypothesis that novice endoscopists (medical students) could rapidly learn intubation skills, and achieve success in routine as well as difficult intubations using an indirect video laryngoscope. Following the success of the students, we believe that indirect laryngoscopy could become a valuable technique in disaster medicine and personnel hampered by chem.-bio suits..

From a global perspective, the universality of gender-related societal issues is particularly significant. Although gender inequality is considered a sociological problem, the large number of female victims in disasters warrants an assessment of disaster management sciences. In this article, related concepts are discussed based on their relevance sociologically and in disaster management to develop a common terminology and examine this complex topic, which is rooted in different social profiles and anthropological heterogeneity throughout the world. A brief history is discussed, and significant examples are provided from different disasters in Turkey to illustrate why a woman-oriented approach should be adopted when evaluating concepts of gender inequality. Observations of disasters have shown that it is important to apply international standards (humanitarian charter and minimum disaster response standards), especially during periods of response and rehabilitation. Relevant factors related to gender
Every health system faces variable demand on its resources. In addition to a long-term increase in patient volume, there may be short-term increases in demand for emergency healthcare services, or "surge."1 When the primary healthcare and outpatient systems are not functioning effectively, the EDs become the destination for patients who have no other access to primary healthcare.2. A number of actions can be taken to manage a catastrophic surge. These include discharging stable ED and inpatients, cancelling elective surgeries, opening alternate care areas, and calling in standby or off-duty staff. For such a system to work effectively, a clear plan must define who has authority to initiate such a cascade. In addition, the trigger points that activate these costly measures should be specified. The activation of a local or regional disaster plan may have residual health service delivery implications for days or longer. These measures, however, have not been rigorously investigated or consistently ...
Its heart-wrenching to watch all that people go through as natural disasters play out on our television screens. Tucked away, along with sympathy for those in the midst of a hurricane, earthquake, flood or other catastrophic events, is the very understandable thought, "Im so glad thats not happening to me!". The truth is, however, that we are all susceptible to major life-changing events, and they can happen with very little notice. Those with a chronic medical condition, like diabetes, are especially vulnerable and should take seriously the advice to be prepared. Even if you dont live on the coast or near a river that is prone to flooding, everyone is susceptible to a life-threatening event - tornado, blizzard, wildfire, earthquake, chemical explosion and the list goes on. For those with diabetes, it is extremely important to have a diabetic-specific disaster preparedness kit ready to go in an instant, which may be all the time you have. Make sure that it is insulated and waterproof. Some ...

In 2009, the European Commission adopted a Communication on a Community approach on the prevention of natural and man-made disasters setting out an overall disaster prevention framework and proposing measures to minimize the impacts of disasters. The Communication advocated the development of EU and national policies supporting the disaster management cycle: prevention - preparedness - response - recovery. This document (EU Guidelines) was developed in response, to assist countries to further develop national approaches and procedures to risk management, taking into account the future impact of climate change. The focus of these guidelines is on the processes and methods of national risk assessments and mapping in the prevention, preparedness and planning stages, as carried out within the broader framework of disaster risk management. The guidelines are based on a multi-hazard and multi-risk approach. These guidelines build on experience in the practical implementations of national risk ...
In artificial intelligence, knowledge-based agents draw on a pool of logical sentences to infer conclusions about the world. At the knowledge level, we only need to specify what the agent knows and what its goals are; a logical abstraction separate from details of implementation. This notion of knowledge level was first introduced by Allen Newell in the 1980s, to have a way to rationalize an agents behavior. The agent takes actions based on knowledge it possesses, in an attempt to reach specific goals. It chooses actions according to the principle of rationality. Beneath the knowledge level resides the symbol level. Whereas the knowledge level is world oriented, namely that it concerns the environment in which the agent operates, the symbol level is system oriented, in that it includes the mechanisms the agent has available to operate. The knowledge level rationalizes the agents behavior, while the symbol level mechanizes the agents behavior. For example, in a computer program, the knowledge ...
