  • Adult Epiglottitis: A Case Series. The Permanente journal Lindquist, B., Zachariah, S., Kulkarni, A. 2017; 21

    Abstract

    Emergency Departments are inundated by patients with respiratory illness during the winter months. Emergency physicians are required to quickly identify critically ill patients among the large volume of patients with mild upper respiratory illness. Among these life-threatening conditions is acute epiglottitis.We report a rare series of four adult patients who presented to our Emergency Department during a period of only one week in April 2015 and were ultimately diagnosed with acute epiglottitis. Three of the patients improved with conservative measures and were observed in the intensive care unit. One patient required an emergent tracheostomy.This series of patients is unique in that all four patients presented to a single Emergency Department within a few days of each other and, despite a myriad of presenting chief complaints, the patients were eventually found to have the same potentially life-threatening diagnosis.These cases reinforce the variability of presenting symptoms and physical examination findings that can occur in patients with epiglottitis. They also highlight clinical findings and adjunctive testing that can help identify patients who would most benefit from intervention.

  • Barriers to Real-Time Medical Direction via Cellular Communication for Prehospital Emergency Care Providers in Gujarat, India. Cure¯us Lindquist, B., Strehlow, M. C., Rao, G. V., Newberry, J. A. 2016; 8 (7)

    Abstract

    Many low- and middle-income countries depend on emergency medical technicians (EMTs), nurses, midwives, and layperson community health workers with limited training to provide a majority of emergency medical, trauma, and obstetric care in the prehospital setting. To improve timely patient care and expand provider scope of practice, nations leverage cellular phones and call centers for real-time online medical direction. However, there exist several barriers to adequate communication that impact the provision of emergency care. We sought to identify obstacles in the cellular communication process among GVK Emergency Management and Research Institute (GVK EMRI) EMTs in Gujarat, India.A convenience sample of practicing EMTs in Gujarat, India were surveyed regarding the barriers to call initiation and completion.108 EMTs completed the survey. Overall, ninety-seven (89.8%) EMTs responded that the most common reason they did not initiate a call with the call center physician was insufficient time. Forty-six (42%) EMTs reported that they were unable to call the physician one or more times during a typical workweek (approximately 5-6 twelve-hour shifts/week) due to their hands being occupied performing direct patient care. Fifty-eight (54%) EMTs reported that they were unable to reach the call center physician, despite attempts, at least once a week.This study identified multiple barriers to communication, including insufficient time to call for advice and inability to reach call center physicians. Identification of simple interventions and best practices may improve communication and ensure timely and appropriate prehospital care.
