Introduction The aim of endovascular treatment (EVT) for acute ischaemic stroke is to relieve the cerebral tissue hypoxia in the area supplied by the occluded artery. Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) monitoring is developed to assess regional cerebral tissue oxygen haemoglobin saturation (rSO 2 ). We aimed to investigate whether NIRS can detect in...

This prospective study evaluates haemodynamic and electroencephalographic effects observed when administering four combinations of effect-site concentrations of propofol (CePROP) and remifentanil (CeREMI), all yielding a single predicted probability of tolerance of laryngoscopy of 90% (PTOL = 90%) according to the Bouillon interaction model. We aim...

Introduction: Crewmembers of the “Royal Netherlands Sea Rescue Institution” (KNRM) lifeboats must wear heavy survival suits with integrated lifejackets. This and the challenging environment onboard (boat movements, limited space) might influence Basic Life Support (BLS) performance. The primary objective of this study was to assess the impact of th...

Objective The effect of anesthetic management (general anesthesia [GA], conscious sedation, or local anesthesia) on functional outcome and the role of blood pressure management during endovascular treatment (EVT) for acute ischemic stroke is under debate. We aimed to determine whether hypotension during EVT under GA is associated with functional ou...

Background Drowning is a significant public health issue with more than 320,000 deaths globally every year. These numbers are greatly underestimated, however, due to factors such as inadequate data collection, inconsistent categorization and failure to report in certain regions and cultures. The objective of this study was to develop a standardised...
Article
Stroke is a major global health issue, contributing to an age-standardised global death rate for cerebrovascular diseases of 86.5 per 100 000. For many years intravenous thrombolytic agents were the main treatment option for acute ischaemic strokes. In recent years, strong evidence has emerged that the use of intra-arterial thrombectomy in addition...

Background: The Utstein style for drowning (USFD) was published in 2003 with the aim of improving drowning research. To support a revision of the USFD, the current study aimed to generate an inventory of the use of the USFD parameters and compare the findings of the publications that have used the USFD. Methods: A search in Pubmed, Embase, the C...

We read with great interest the recent case report by Galbiati et al. on a 15-year-old drowning victim with favourable outcome despite a long period of submersion.(1) We applaud the authors for raising awareness of drowning and its treatment, but were surprised the manuscript included the term 'nearly drowned'. In 2003 this journal co-published an...

Background: Utstein-style guidelines use an established consensus process, endorsed by the international resuscitation community, to facilitate and structure resuscitation research and publication. The first "Guidelines for Uniform Reporting of Data From Drowning" were published over a decade ago. During the intervening years, resuscitation scienc...

Article
Bystanders make a critical difference in the survival of drowning victims. Little information on their role before arrival of the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is available in the scientific literature. In a descriptive study, this role is investigated. We studied 289 rescue reports (1999-2004) available from the Dutch Maatschappij tot Redding v...

... In general anesthesia, hypnosis and analgesia are always required. Propofol and remifentanil administration must be properly balanced in order to achieve a patient state suitable for surgery, by considering that these drugs show a synergistic effect [1] . Paralysis can be required only to facilitate endotracheal intubation and to improve the surgical conditions in * Corresponding author. ...
... 1-8 Commonly used sedative and hypnotic agents administered during CS and GA are known to disrupt cerebral hemodynamics and cerebral perfusion. 9 However, the potential deleterious clinical impact of CS or GA during EVT on the collateral circulation remains uncertain, particularly in the extended time window (>6 hours from stroke onset). 10 11 We hypothesized that, due to a larger proportion of 'slow progressors' in the extended time window, 12 the tenacious collateral supply in these subjects would offset the potential deleterious impact of CS or GA. ...
... Also, data on non-fatal drowning victims recorded by aquatic rescue organisations and patients admitted to emergency departments and intensive care units will enhance the perspective on the issue [3,46,[129][130][131]. Although categorisation systems for clinical studies are available which report fatal and non-fatal drowning data in a standardised way, these systems are not suitable for demographic or epidemiological studies [4,127,132,133]. ...
... Furthermore, using an accepted template will ensure important details like established risk factors for water-related injuries are included. Although designed for resuscitation cases, the Utstein-style Recommend Guidelines for Uniform Reporting of Data from Drowning-Related Resuscitation could act as an initial guide to ensure data collectors and coroners are documenting drowning relevant details. 64 Another potential template is the DAN Incident Reporting System. 65 Although the public can submit these reports, recreational tourists may not be aware of the tool. ...
... Drowning incidents are analyzed mainly according to different categories, such as age group, the incident of location, and activity information with some natural factors (RLS 2020). Drowning (Idris et al. 2003) and revised recently (Idris et al. 2017). ...
... Franklin, 2012). The issue of aquatic rescue undertaken by bystanders is significant, as the initial response and action of a bystander can make a critical difference in preventing loss of life, both through rescuing someone from the water and early intervention after the rescue, such as application of CPR (Attard et al., 2015;Moran & Stanley, 2013;Venema et al., 2010). However, little is known about how informed members of the public (bystanders) are to recognize a victim who is drowning and whether they are equipped to engage in an aquatic rescue. ...
