New algorithms 2013!

New thrilling emergency situations brought to real by our interactive algorithms - let´s try to fight for your patient´s life!

We would like to introduce you new algorithms created by medical students during their school year 2012/2013. The topics are Childbirth in field, Acute abdomen, Advanced Life Support in Adults, Amniotic fluid embolis, Meningococcal sepsis, Peripartal bleeding, Methanol intoxication... you can easily find them here.

Heart arrest is one of the common life-threatening situation which can face all of us during normal life especially then medical stuff in hospitals. Our algorithm describes briefly and exatly basic life supporting actions in case of heart arrest and advanced life support provided by emergency team.

Acute abdomen is one of the classic cases of acute medicine. Due to the threat of serious complications it is necessary to recognize it early and treat appropriately. In the case of surgical intervention, the patient is at high risk of aspiration of gastric contents during induction of general anesthesia. Our algorithm focuses on the topic from the perspective of anesthesiologist, especially on the correct rapid induction of anesthesia (Rapid Sequence Induction-RSI, flash introduction, crush introduction).

Peripartal life-threatening haemorrhage is defined as sudden and uncontrolled blood loss, which is clinically estimated at 1500 ml and more, and which is associated with the onset of clinical and/or laboratory signs of tissue hypoperfusion.

Meningococcal sepsis, meningococcal meningitis and sepsis combinated with menigitis are caused by gram negative diplococcus Neisseria meningitidis and are understood under exression invasive meningococcal disease. Appreciable part of population are healthy carriers of this microbe. On the other hand it can cause fulminant and often fatal disease. Algorithm shows a typical case of IMD and the most important principles of its treatment.

Childbirth in the field is situation which can confront every one of us. For this case an algorithm was created, where you find yourself in the position of emergency doctor called to assist the progressing childbirth. Here is your chance to get familiar with the proper medical guidance of the childbirth in the field.

Methanol intoxication has become a very actual topic within last year. The great danger of accidental poisoning lies in inability to recognize methanol while drinking it and distinguish it from ethanol and so avoid drinking greater amount of it. This algorithm takes us through the situation from ensuring the patient in prehospital care until professional treatment and therapy in the hospital.

Amniotic fluid embolism is a rare but very serious and dramatic complication in pregnancy. It is one of the most common causes of maternal death worldwide, with mortality approaching 80%. Diagnosis is based only on clinical signs, it is used the elimination procedure - "diagnosis per exclusionem". This algorithm describes from the perspective of an anesthesiologist this emergent situation and subsequent diagnosis.

Eclampsia is life-threatening pregnancy complication that is characteristic by tonic-clonic seizures. The patient is usually warned by obvious symptoms, but sometimes the eclampsia appears unexpected. It requires immediate intervention of seizure suppression, high blood pressure decrease and quick delivery. Due to the seriousness, an unexpected beginning and the progress, the main protection is prevention and diagnosis of preeclampsia that is easily treatable.
