NCT ID: NCT03327688 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Deep Vein Thrombosis

Point-of-care Ultrasound in Finland

Start date: October 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study has two aims. 1. Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is a common suspected medical condition. If it cannot be excluded clinically and using D-dimer, ultrasound examination is required. An option for traditional radiologist-performed ultrasound is a 2-point compression ultrasound (2-CUS). The safety of this technique is proven. However there does not exist any data on costs comparing traditional and 2-CUS pathways in primary health care. This study will evaluate the total cost of both pathways by conducting a cost-minimization analysis. It will also study the effect of a simple ultrasound education on the referrals to hospital due to suspected DVT. Hypothesis 1: Short education in ultrasound will reduce significantly referrals to hospital and save resources. 2. Length of stay (LOS) in emergency department (ED) is related to increased mortality, morbidity, prolonged hospital stay and probably patient satisfaction. LOS of patients with a point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) performed by an emergency physician (EP) will be compared to those that have a radiology performed ultrasound examination. Further examination and accuracy of POCUS will be noted. Hypothesis 2: POCUS can shorten LOS significantly in selected clinical conditions

NCT ID: NCT01834092 Recruiting - Surgery Clinical Trials

Study of the Glycocalyx in Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

Start date: April 2013
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The investigators want to measure the degradation of the endothelial glycocalyx before and after clamping the aorta, in patients operated for a abdominal aortic aneurism.
