Reference range for tissue oxygen saturation in pregnancy using near-infrared spectroscopy.

Robert D Stager, Mona A Fakih, Ruth Churley-Strom, Bonita Singal, Mary-Anne Purtill,

<h4>Objective</h4>To estimate the reference range of tissue oxygen saturation (StO2) values in pregnancy. Near-infrared spectroscopy-derived StO2 is a noninvasive continuous measure used to predict hypoperfusion. Normal StO2 values have not been established in pregnant women.<h4>Study design</h4>We enrolled 154 healthy pregnant women from an obstetric and gynecology resident clinic. Three sequential ...

Tissue oxygen saturation for the risk stratification of septic patients.

Stefan W Leichtle, Christodoulos Kaoutzanis, Mary-Margaret Brandt, Kathleen B Welch, Mary-Anne Purtill,

<h4>Purpose</h4>Peripheral tissue oxygen saturation (Sto2) has shown promise as an early indicator of tissue hypoperfusion and as a risk stratification tool in various forms of shock. The purpose of this study was to determine if Sto2 would predict admission to an intensive (ICU) or progressive care unit in patients with ... Read more >>

It takes an intensivist.

Lora Z Silverman, L Marco Hoesel, Aken Desai, Patricia Posa, Mary-Anne Purtill, Mary-Margaret Brandt,

<h4>Background</h4>Our institution initiated the implementation of the Surviving Sepsis Campaign guidelines in 2006. We hypothesize that the addition of a surgical intensivist improved results more than the implementation of the guidelines alone.<h4>Methods</h4>We collected data on 273 patients who were admitted to the surgical intensive care unit for sepsis. The groups ... Read more >>

The dangling diaphragm sign: sensitivity and comparison with existing CT signs of blunt traumatic diaphragmatic rupture.

Terry S Desser, Byard Edwards, Stephen Hunt, Jarrett Rosenberg, Mary Anne Purtill, R Brooke Jeffrey,

The objectives of our study were to describe a new CT sign of diaphragmatic injury, the "dangling diaphragm" sign, and assess its comparative utility relative to other signs in the diagnosis of diaphragmatic injury resulting from blunt trauma. CT scans of 16 blunt trauma patients (12 men and four women, ... Read more >>

Outcomes and complications of open abdomen technique for managing non-trauma patients.

Kritaya Kritayakirana, Paul M Maggio, Susan Brundage, Mary-Anne Purtill, Kristan Staudenmayer, David A Spain,

<h4>Background</h4>Damage control surgery and the open abdomen technique have been widely used in trauma. These techniques are now being utilized more often in non-trauma patients but the outcomes are not clear. We hypothesized that the use of the open abdomen technique in non-trauma patients 1) is more often due to ... Read more >>

<h4>Background</h4>Efforts to determine the suitability of low-grade pancreatic injuries for nonoperative management have been hindered by the inaccuracy of older computed tomography (CT) technology for detecting pancreatic injury (PI). This retrospective, multicenter American Association for the Surgery of Trauma-sponsored trial examined the sensitivity of newer 16- and 64-multidetector CT (MDCT) ... Read more >>

Validation of a prehospital trauma triage tool: a 10-year perspective.

Mary-Anne Purtill, Kent Benedict, Tina Hernandez-Boussard, Susan I Brundage, Kritaya Kritayakirana, John P Sherck, Adella Garland, David A Spain,

<h4>Background</h4>Triage of the trauma patient in the field is a complex and challenging issue, especially deciding when to use aeromedical transport. The American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma recently defined an acceptable under-triage rate [seriously injured patient not taken to a trauma center (TC)] as 5%, whereas over-triage rates ...

A county hospital surgical practice: a model for acute care surgery.

Adella M Garland, Daniel J Riskin, Susan I Brundage, Friedrich Moritz, David A Spain, Mary-Anne Purtill, John P Sherck,

<h4>Background</h4>Trauma surgery has changed significantly over the past decade. Nonoperative evidence-based algorithms have become common and surgical trauma volume has become increasingly difficult to maintain. The acute care surgery (ACS) model, which integrates trauma, critical care, and emergency surgery, has been proposed as a future model of trauma practice.<h4>Methods</h4>Database information ...
