ABSTRACT: INTRODUCTION: : Functional time-varying cardiac elastances (FTVE) contain a rich amount of information about the specific cardiac state of a patient. However, a FTVE waveform is very invasive to directly measure, and is thus currently not used in clinical practice. This paper presents a method for the estimation of a patient specific FTVE, using only metrics that are currently available in a clinical setting. METHOD: : Correlations are defined between invasively measured FTVE waveforms and the aortic and pulmonary artery pressures from 2 cohorts of porcine subjects, 1 induced with pulmonary embolism, the other with septic shock. These correlations are then used to estimate the FTVE waveform based on the individual aortic and pulmonary artery pressure waveforms, using the "other" dysfunction's correlations as a cross validation. RESULTS: : The cross validation resulted in 1.26% and 2.51% median errors for the left and right FTVE respectively on pulmonary embolism, while the septic shock cohort had 2.54% and 2.90% median errors. CONCLUSIONS: : The presented method accurately and reliably estimated a patient specific FTVE, with no added risk to the patient. The cross validation shows that the method is not dependent on dysfunction and thus has the potential for generalisation beyond pulmonary embolism and septic shock. [less ▲]

Introduction: Cardiac elastances are highly invasive to measure directly, but are clinically useful due tothe amount of information embedded in them. Information about the cardiac elastance, which can be used toestimate it, can be found in the downstream pressure waveforms of aortic pressure (Pao) and the pulmonaryartery (Ppa). However these pressure waveforms are typically noisy and biased, and require processing in orderto locate the specific information required for the cardiac elastance estimation. This paper presents the methodto algorithmically process the pressure waveforms. Methods: A shear transform is developed in order to helplocate information in the pressure waveforms. This transform turns difficult to locate corners into easy to locatemaximum or minimum points as well as providing error correction. Results: The method located all points 87out of 88 waveforms for Ppa to within the sampling frequency. For Pao, out of 616 total points, 605 were foundwithin 1%, 5 within 5%, 4 within 10% and 2 within 20%. Conclusions: The presented method provides arobust, accurate and dysfunction independent way to locate points on the aortic and pulmonary artery pressurewaveforms, allowing the non-invasive estimation of the left and right cardiac elastance.

AIM: To improve the communication during shift handover in an emergency department. METHODS: We observed the handover process and analysed the discourse between physicians at shift change first, and then we created two cognitive tools and tested their clinical impact on the field. We used different measures to evaluate this impact on the health care process including the frequency and type of information content communicated between physicians, duration of the handoff, physician self-evaluation of the quality of the handoff and a posthandover study of patient handling. RESULTS: Our results showed that the patient's medical history, significant test results, recommendations (treatment plan) and patient follow-up were communicated to a greater extent when the tools are used. We also found that physicians spent more time at the bedside and less time consulting medical records using these tools. CONCLUSION: The present study showed how in-depth observations and analyses of real work processes can be used to better support the quality of patient care. [less ▲]

Les services d’urgence sont régulièrement confrontés au problème d’encombrement à l’admission par une demande qui dépasse l’offre de soins. Il est essentiel de réguler le flux d’entrée par la mise en place d’un dispositif de tri. Ce mécanisme s’affine depuis une quinzaine d’années. Nous proposons un algorithme de tri (ELISA ou Echelle Liégeoise de l’Indice de Sévérité à l’Admission) qui vise à définir l’état d’urgence selon 5 niveaux depuis la catégorie U1 (urgence absolue) à U5 (urgence relative). Ces niveaux sont associés à un délai de contact médical (immédiat à 120 minutes) et à un trajet de soin correspondant (salle de déchoquage, secteur B ou brancard, secteur A ou ambulatoire, salle d’attente) réunissant ainsi des impératifs de temps et de lieu de prise en charge optimaux. Notre algorithme de tri montre une excellente fiabilité par la comparaison du niveau initial de la catégorisation au devenir du patient (soins intensifs, hospitalisation, et sortie du service).
