Biography:

Tim Collins has 20 years of experience in Critical Care. He holds the position of Consultant Nurse, Lead Nurse, Charge Nurse, ICU Educator and Senior Lecturer. He is currently a British Association of Critical Care Nurses (BACCN) elected national board member and Editorial Board Member of Nursing in Critical Care Journal (Wiley). He has given a number of presentations at European & international conferences and has published a number of papers in peer reviewed journals and book chapters. He completed his Doctorate Degree and MSc in Critical Care. He is an Instructor in both Adult and Pediatric Advanced Life Support. His interests include Sepsis, Clinical Shock, Vascular Access, Resuscitation, Organ Donation and Hemodynamic monitoring. 

Abstract:

Overview: This presentation will use an interactive case study approach to discuss the use of delivering evidence based sepsis interventions through intraosseous (IO) access.  The presentation will evaluate the evidence behind the use of achieving fluid resuscitation, antibiotic administration and IO sampling in a hypotensive difficult vascular access critically ill sepsis patient. Published literature will be innovatively evaluated and woven into the clinical case study.  This will refer to the recently published 2016 revised International sepsis guidelines that recommend the use of IO in providing an alternative route for administering antibiotics and fluids that achieves comparable antibiotic plasma concentrations compared to IV.

Originality: Originality will focus on the use of achieving sepsis management through the IO route where conference papers nearly exclusively concentrates upon IV or central venous approaches in sepsis management. IO vascular access is traditionally viewed as an intervention reserved for cardiac arrest however this presentation will challenge this concept in providing novel approaches to delivering time critical sepsis treatment through the IO route.

Applicability to Critical & Emergency Care: Sepsis is one of the most frequent causes of clinical deterioration that often requires critical care intervention and admission.  All critical care & emergency providers need to have the knowledge and skills to effectively treat sepsis patients.  Sepsis patients require early vascular access and treatment and this presentation will share with practitioners that the IO route is an effective alternative to IV use in the critically ill patient with sepsis

Impact for improving patient care: Globally Sepsis is one of the major avoidable deaths. The evidence shows that delays in antibiotic administration & fluid therapy increases mortality.  In difficult vascular access situations, the IO route can provide a timely alternative to IV access to ensure that antibiotic and fluid resuscitation is commenced early that will provide direct improvements to patient mortality and morbidity from sepsis. The presentation will challenge practitioner’s perceptions that IO can provide an effective alternative to IV access in the critically ill.

Biography:

Alessandra Falco has completed her PhD in Social and Personality Psychology from Padua University. She is now Researcher and Adjunct Professor of Work and Organizational Psychology at Padua University. Her research areas are: (a) work-related stress risk assessment, with particular reference to the development of “integrated” tools, based on subjective, objective, and physiological indicators; (b) the role of specific individual and behavioral dimensions (workaholism, negative affectivity, mindfulness, PsyCap resources, perfectionism, presenteeism) in the etiology of organizational well-being/disease; (c) social marketing, communication and change, with particular reference to traffic psychology.               

 

Abstract:

Statement of the Problem:

Workplace bullying (WB) is a potential source of psychological trauma [1], and is considered as a serious problem in the healthcare sector [2]. Additionally, WB may have detrimental consequences for both the workers (e.g., clinical depression/anxiety, cardiovascular disease) and the organization (e.g., poor quality of care, sickness absences) [2-4]. Therefore, given the relevance of workplace bullying, the purpose of this study is to investigate the association between WB and serum levels of a possible biomarker of stress, namely Interleukin 17 (IL-17), a pro-inflammatory cytokine that may contribute to chronic inflammation [5]. Indeed, according to the Allostatic Load Model, inflammation may play a role in the stress process, since the exposure to chronic or repeated stressful situations (such as WB) may lead to the sustained activation of primary mediators, including pro/anti-inflammatory cytokines. This, in turn, may lead to secondary mediators (e.g., C-reactive Protein) and, in the long run, to physical (e.g., cardiovascular disease) or psychological (e.g., depression) diseases [6-7].

Methodology: The study was conducted in an Italian healthcare organization. Nurses and doctors (N = 98) completed a self-report questionnaire (Cronbach's alpha = .84) aimed at determining WB. Moreover, participants underwent a clinical interview, followed by a blood sample withdrawal.

Findings: Multiple regression analysis showed that WB was positively associated with IL-17 (β = .24, p < .05), controlling for the effect of possible confounders, namely gender, age, and BMI.

Conclusion & Significance: This study provide initial support for the hypothesis that WB is positively associated with IL-17, a possible biomarker of stress. Therefore, given its negative consequences, organizations and practitioners should implement interventions aimed at preventing WB, providing workers at risk with resources to cope with WB, and reducing the negative impact of WB on the health of the worker (i.e., primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention).ental Medicine 60:779-783.

Abstract:

Trauma resuscitation has remained a hot topic of research as well as debate and damage control resuscitation has gained popularity over the last decade. Damage control resuscitation focuses on stopping hemorrhage, replacing fluids lost and correcting the lethal triad of coagulopathy, acidosis and hypothermia. Despite improvements in our knowledge in trauma resuscitation, optimal management of hypotensive trauma patients are still in grey area and under investigations. Even method of fluid delivery & the type of fluid, blood products used are still not clear. The present teaching-learning session is aimed to discuss these issues with current and recent knowledge in pre-hospital and emergency department resuscitation of poly-trauma patients along with our experience in managing trauma patients in a remote hilly area of India.

Keynote: Airway lesions in children: How to deal with these emergency medical situations?

Time : 12:20-13:00

OMICS International Trauma 2017 International Conference Keynote Speaker Andreas Fette photo
Biography:

Andreas Fette is an active Clinical Consultant Pediatric Surgeon. He has been working for many years in abroad in the field of Pediatric Emergency Surgery in developing countries. He has published more than 80 original papers, contributed to 18 book chapters and has been serving as an Editorial Board Member of medical journals. Investigations on the traumatized pediatric airway have been a main topic of his master’s thesis for his professorship in Pediatric Surgery.

Abstract:

Lesions of the pediatric airway are considered to be rare but always serious and challenging injuries. In many cases, they are nearly invisible or hidden behind other more sinister and more obvious trauma conditions. In other cases, the child seems to be pretty stable, before it suddenly shows rapid, unexpected and sometimes even fatal deterioration. Sometimes the trauma (and its sequelae) to the airway is clearly visible, but in due course the resulting impact is less problematic and the recovery is unspectacular. Regardless if seen first by a junior or senior doctor, the trauma to the airway is overlooked on scene in a number of cases and the child therefore is not transferred directly to the (urgently needed) specialist care. There are extremely various mechanisms of accident and etiologies of airway trauma making recognition of the leading clinical signs and key symptoms especially in children nearly impossible. But significant compromise of the child`s airway has to be considered anytime and our resulting emergency management is of key importance either to save the patient`s life or at least to prevent life-long sequelae. In this communication, we would like to share our experience and management strategies out of our case series to stimulate a discussion about how to deal with these rare but complex emergency medical situations.
