The goal of this observational study is to investigate the occurrence of hypoxemia (an abnormally low concentration of oxygen in the blood) in trauma patients within the first 24 hours of hospital admission following arrival to a trauma center. The main questions the study aims to answer are: - Do trauma patients experience hypoxemia during the initial 24 hours of hospital admission following trauma? - What is the daily distribution of potential hypoxemic episodes? The investigators expect that hypoxemic episodes will be more frequent during the night (20.00-07.59) than during the day (08.00-19.59) An additional pulse oximeter will be attached to the participants, which measures oxygen saturation in the blood during the first 24 hours of hospital admission after trauma.
The proposed PROACT study will test the effectiveness of a mental health intervention (psychotherapy) for multiple common mental health conditions (depressive, anxiety and trauma symptoms) among adolescents and youth with HIV in Kenya. The study will also evaluate key factors for successful intervention implementation and conduct an economic evaluation to inform future intervention scale-up.
The aim of the study is to compare emergency orthopedic trauma admissions between the pre-pandemic period and the pandemic period and to detect changes in orthopedic trauma epidemiology.
The proposed study is a prospective, observational, investigator and patient blinded study comparing the results of blood volume measurement using the FDA-cleared Daxor BVA-100 device to the Daxor BVA-200 device. Data from this study may be pooled with data from studies with similar design conducted at other sites, for the purposes of an FDA medical device submission.
Type: retrospective observational multicenter trial. Population of interest: adult patients suffering from thoraco-abdominal trauma undergoing both non-operative and operative management. Hypothesis: Adrenal gland injury is a rare finding after blunt thoracoabdominal trauma. Short-term outcomes of blunt adrenal gland injury (BAGI) described in literature are contradictory. Reports on the outcomes related to this injury are variable and consider heterogeneous populations of trauma patients Aim: This study aims to explore the burden related to BAGI in an homogeneous population of patients sustaining blunt thoraco-abdominal trauma treated in different institution
The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of a universal, digital, single-session intervention for youth mental health, functioning, and well-being, when implemented with Ukrainian children and adolescents. The intervention teaches well-established procedures that research has shown to be effective in helping American children calm themselves and regulate emotions, including slowed breathing and peaceful mental imagery. The intervention has not been tested previously with Ukrainian students. Participants will be provided access to this brief online program as part of the school curriculum. Students will be randomly assigned to receive the digital program either immediately or after 2 months. This 2-month lag will allow for evaluating the effectiveness of Project Calm in improving students' mental health, well-being, and self-calming skills. This will also allow for evaluating the effectiveness of such an intervention for war-exposed youths for whom these interventions may be especially helpful given the gap between these children's needs for mental health services and the very limited availability of clinicians
The goal of this combination Type 1 hybrid and observational study is to evaluate the impact of a peer delivered intervention of acceptance and comittment therapy(ACT) + exercise + social support to address the substance (ab)use, violence, and AIDS/HIV (SAVA) to improve medication adherence for women living with HIV (WLWH). This intervention will be implemented by community based organizations that focus on WLWH across four counties. The main question it aims to answer are: - Will peer provision of ACT, exercise, and social support improve medication adherence for WLWH? - Will community based organizations be able to sustain the intervention after research is completed, and what changes will need to be made to sustain th eintervention.
Childbirth is a critical moment in this perinatal period, with high unpredictability and risks of medical complications for the mother and child. It can be experienced as a traumatic experience for the woman. The consequences of a traumatic childbirth are numerous: psychiatric consequences for the mother: with increased risk of post-traumatic stress syndrome of postpartum depression decompensation of an old psychiatric illness, suicide , addictive disorders ; consequences on interactions: early mother-baby interactions are of poorer quality if the women have a negative experience of their birth. Very few studies have focused on the early detection of traumatic childbirth, on the day of it. These evaluations only take into account the women's experience of their childbirth. The systematization of a screening questionnaire for all deliveries would help to detect obvious traumatic deliveries but also to detect traumatic experiences when objectively the delivery occurs without obstetric complications. This is why the objective of our study is to evaluate the perception of traumatic births by midwives.
The PRESERVE & CONNECT project is a multi-site randomized control trial of the Breakthrough Parenting Curriculum: Navigating Trauma Across Generations (BPC) in rural and racially and ethnically diverse communities in Vermont and Connecticut.
The early use of blood products as a part of Massive Transfusion Protocol (MTP) during trauma resuscitation has been increasingly supported by providers and backed by the literature. However, the incidence of hypocalcemia during MTP has also been recorded and continues to be studied as an exacerbating factor in coagulopathy during trauma.
