Comparison of blood product use and costs with use of 3-factor versus 4-factor prothrombin complex concentrate for off-label indications. American journal of health-system pharmacy : AJHP : official journal of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, 75(15), 1103-1109.More infoResults of a comparison of blood product use and cost outcomes with use of 3-factor versus 4-factor prothrombin complex concentrate (PCC) for indications other than warfarin reversal are presented.

Comparison of 3-Factor Versus 4-Factor Prothrombin Complex Concentrate With Regard to Warfarin Reversal, Blood Product Use, and Costs. American journal of therapeutics, 25(3), e326-e332.More infoProthrombin complex concentrates (PCCs) are drug products containing varying amounts of vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors II, VII, IX, and X. The evidence comparing 3-factor PCC (3-PCC) versus 4-factor PCC (4-PCC) for warfarin reversal is conflicting. It has been hypothesized that 3-PCC may be less effective than 4-PCC because of relatively lower factor VII content.

The American journal of emergency medicine, 36(7), 1129-1133.More infoThe use of etomidate and rocuronium for rapid sequence intubation (RSI) results in a duration of paralysis that exceeds the duration of sedation. The primary objective of this study was to compare the number of analgosedative (AGS) interventions early versus late post-RSI, with this drug combination. The secondary objective was to descriptively assess time to first AGS intervention.

Comparison of lower-dose versus higher-dose intravenous naloxone on time to recurrence of opioid toxicity in the emergency department. Clinical toxicology (Philadelphia, Pa.), 1-6.More infoThe initial dose of naloxone administered to patients who present to the emergency department (ED) with opioid overdose is highly variable. The objective of this study was to determine if the initial dose of intravenous (IV) naloxone given to these patients was associated with the time to recurrence of opioid toxicity.
