Advanced airway management in hoist and longline operations in mountain HEMS - considerations in austere environments: a narrative review This review is endorsed by the International Commission for Mountain Emergency Medicine (ICAR MEDCOM)
BACKGROUND: Providing sufficient oxygenation and ventilation is of paramount importance for the survival of emergency patients. Therefore, advanced airway management is one of the core tasks for every rescue team. ...
Evaluation of an MR-conditional “cardio stepper” for cardiopulmonary exercise testing
Background: Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) represents the gold standard for routine examination of cardiac function and structure evaluation at rest and during exercise as well. Conventional stress CMR ...
Oxidative stress response to acute hypobaric hypoxia and its association with indirect measurement of increased intracranial pressure: a field study
High altitude is the most intriguing natural laboratory to study human physiological response to hypoxic conditions. In this study, we investigated changes in reactive oxygen species (ROS) and oxidative stress biomarkers ...
Influence of low ambient temperature on epitympanic temperature measurement: a prospective randomized clinical study
BACKGROUND: Epitympanic temperature (Tty) measured with thermistor probes correlates with core body temperature (Tcore), but the reliability of measurements at low ambient temperature is unknown. The aim of this study was ...
Accidental hypothermia-an update: The content of this review is endorsed by the International Commission for Mountain Emergency Medicine (ICAR MEDCOM)
BACKGROUND: This paper provides an up-to-date review of the management and outcome of accidental hypothermia patients with and without cardiac arrest. METHODS: The authors reviewed the relevant literature in their ...
Extreme Terrestrial Environments: Life in Thermal Stress and Hypoxia. A Narrative Review
Living, working and exercising in extreme terrestrial environments are challenging tasks even for healthy humans of the modern new age. The issue is not just survival in remote environments but rather the achievement of ...
The effect of thermal insulation pads on heat flux, physical effort and perceived exertion during endurance exercise in cool environments
To determine the effects of thermal insulation pads on clothing surface temperature, physical effort and perceived exertion during endurance exercise in cool environments two different pants (PCOOL, PINSUL) were designed: ...
