EUROpE-RSI (EURopean Online Evaluation RSI Study)

2016-04-26 19:53:21 | BioPortfolio


The investigators want to identify and show differences in standards and procedures of in-hospital rapid sequence induction by collecting data with an online survey for anaesthetist in Europe.


The study is designed as a web-based online survey for anaesthetist in Europe. They will be invited via mail, as members of the European Society of Anaesthesiology (ESA), the participation is voluntary.

The survey contains 30 items about the standards and procedures of in-hospital rapid sequence induction (RSI). There will be a selection of possible answers, only a few items contains free-text answers.

The study collects only personal data to age, country, gender and level of training.

The collected data should identify differences in the procedures of RSI.

Rapid Sequence Induction.

A Rapid Sequence Induction and Intubation (RSI oder RSII) is a standard technique for emergency airway management and anaesthesia. The aim of an RSI is to prevent aspiration by fast endotracheal intub...

A multicentre prospective cohort study of the accuracy of conventional landmark technique for cricoid localisation using ultrasound scanning.

Cricoid pressure is employed during rapid sequence induction to reduce the risk of pulmonary aspiration. Correct application of cricoid pressure depends on knowledge of neck anatomy and precise identi...

Comparison of etomidate and sodium thiopental for induction during rapid sequence intubation in convulsive status epilepticus: A retrospective single-center study.

Few outcome data are available about morbidity associated with endotracheal intubation modalities in critically ill patients with convulsive status epilepticus. We compared etomidate versus sodium thi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Ultrashort-acting anesthetics that are used for induction. Loss of consciousness is rapid and induction is pleasant, but there is no muscle relaxation and reflexes frequently are not reduced adequately. Repeated administration results in accumulation and prolongs the recovery time. Since these agents have little if any analgesic activity, they are seldom used alone except in brief minor procedures. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p174)

An intravenous anesthetic that has been used for rapid induction of anesthesia and for maintenance of anesthesia of short duration. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p918)

A nonflammable, halogenated, hydrocarbon anesthetic that provides relatively rapid induction with little or no excitement. Analgesia may not be adequate. NITROUS OXIDE is often given concomitantly. Because halothane may not produce sufficient muscle relaxation, supplemental neuromuscular blocking agents may be required. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p178)

Techniques for the artifical induction of ovulation, the rupture of the follicle and release of the ovum.

The artificial induction of GENE SILENCING by the use of RNA INTERFERENCE to reduce the expression of a specific gene. It includes the use of DOUBLE-STRANDED RNA, such as SMALL INTERFERING RNA and RNA containing HAIRPIN LOOP SEQUENCE, and ANTI-SENSE OLIGONUCLEOTIDES.
