Sonography and hypotension: a change to critical problem solving in undergraduate medical education. Advances in medical education and practice, 7, 7-13.More infoMultiple curricula have been designed to teach medical students the basics of ultrasound; however, few focus on critical problem-solving. The objective of this study is to determine whether a theme-based ultrasound teaching session, dedicated to the use of ultrasound in the management of the hypotensive patient, can impact medical students' ultrasound education and provide critical problem-solving exercises.

Statewide regionalization of postarrest care for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: association with survival and neurologic outcome. Annals of emergency medicine, 64(5), 496-506.e1.More infoFor out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, authoritative, evidence-based recommendations have been made for regionalization of postarrest care. However, system-wide implementation of these guidelines has not been evaluated. Our hypothesis is that statewide regionalization of postarrest interventions, combined with emergency medical services (EMS) triage bypass, is associated with improved survival and neurologic outcome.

Assessment of alcohol withdrawal in native American patients utilizing the Clinical Institute Withdrawal Assessment of Alcohol Revised scale. Journal of Addiction Medicine, 7(3), 196-199.More infoPMID: 23579238;Abstract: Background: The Clinical Institute Withdrawal Assessment of Alcohol Revised (CIWA-Ar) is a commonly used scale for assessing the severity of alcohol withdrawal syndrome in the acute setting. Despite validation of this scale in the general population, the effect of ethnicity on CIWA-Ar scoring does not appear in the literature. The purpose of our study was to investigate the validity of the CIWA-Ar scale among Native American patients evaluated for acute alcohol detoxification. Methods: A case series of all patients seen for alcohol withdrawal at an Acute Drug and Alcohol Detoxification facility was conducted from June 1, 2011, until April 1, 2012. The CIWA-Ar scores were recorded by trained nursing staff on presentation to Triage Department and every 2 hours thereafter. At our institution, a score of 10 or greater indicates the need for inpatient hospital admission and treatment. Ethnicity was self-reported. Age, sex, blood alcohol concentration, blood pressure, and pulse were recorded on presentation and vital signs repeated every 2 hours. Patients were excluded from the study if other drug use was noted by history or initial urine drug screen. A multivariate logistic regression model was utilized to identify statistically significant variables associated with admission to the inpatient unit and treatment. The relationship of CIWA-Ar scores and ethnicity was compared using analysis of variance. Results: A total of 115 whites, 45 Hispanics, and 47 Native Americans were included in the analysis. Native Americans had consistently lower CIWA-Ar scores at 0, 2, 4, and 6 hours than the other 2 ethnic groups (P = 0.002). In addition, Native Americans were admitted to the hospital less often than the other 2 groups for withdrawal (P < 0.001). Conclusions: The CIWA-Ar scale may underestimate the severity of alcohol withdrawal syndrome in certain ethnic group such as Native Americans. Further prospective studies should be undertaken to determine the validity of the CIWA-Ar scale in assessing alcohol withdrawal across different ethnic populations.
