Grady frontline workers share experience during COVID-19

“What I’ve noticed in the last two months during this pandemic, is people are nervous,” said paramedic Tracy Arnold, who has been with Grady EMS for 21 years. “They really just want our input into what to do.”

Heart attacks, strokes, life-threatening injuries — these are common emergency calls for Grady...

“Interventional cardiologists are often consulted to assess patients with out of hospital cardiac arrest for emergent invasive evaluation,” said Amir Lotfi, MD, FSCAI, chair of the writing group and interventional cardiologist at Baystate Health Cardiology in Springfield, MA. “We created a document based on evidence-based and patient-oriented management to assess and treat patients with out of hospital cardiac arrest.”

“We emphasized that out of hospital cardiac arrest treatment is a continuum from pre-hospital, hospital, and post-hospital care which requires a multidisciplinary approach to enhance both survival and return to a good quality of life,” Lotfi continued. “With this document our goal is to increase standardized language and decrease variation in care in order to improve outcome.”

COVID 19 is manifesting as Kawasaki Disease in children. Numerous reports from the UK and now from hospitals in NY have alerted us that children exposed to COVID 19 can later develop signs and symptoms of a commonly known childhood disease called Kawasaki Disease. Symptoms are fevers for at least 5 days, rash, lymphadenopathy, red eyes, red lips and irritability. Treatment is imperative in order to prevent damage to the heart further down the line. If you see a child with this spectrum of illness please consider COVID-19 and treat them with the usual regimen for Kawasaki (aspirin and IVIG).

History Repeats Itself:
This association of a novel coronavirus with Kawasaki Disease isn’t new. In 2005 a study of children with KD between 2001-2004 showed that 72.7% of children were also positive for HCoV-NH by RT-PCR. Here is a link to the full study in the Journal of Infectious Diseases - http://ow.ly/CYDu50zxgNP

A Sweet Study!
D10 or D50....which is better? This research abstract was presented at the 2020 National Association of EMS Physicians (NAEMSP) in San Diego and reported their findings after screening 660 studies. 9 studies were included in the final data set (3 RCT and 6 Observational), and they concluded that D10 was safer and equally effective for returning consciousness and with less long-term neurological effects.

Is your EMS protocol still using D50? Let us know your thoughts.

Nice video on how NOT to do PPE.

Thank you so much to our EMS partners for making this short training video possible. Take a minute or two and watch this video. Tell us in the comments how many issues you saw. Did we miss some in the narration?

Remember that doffing PPE is the most dangerous part of the process. PLEASE take it slow and steady. We want you to go home safe to your friends and family.

Special thank you to Belchertown Fire Department staff.

COVID-19 lung injury is NOT HAPE. An erroneous theory gained media attention in the past few weeks, positing a relationship between high altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) and lung injury in COVID-19. A group of experts in high altitude medicine who are also caring for patients with COVID-19 correct this misconception; continued amplification of this message could have adverse effects on patient management so please help us spread the word. Information about why COVID-19 cannot be confused with or compared to treatment for high altitude pulmonary edema is available here: liebertpub.com/doi/10.1089/ham.2020.0055

MAEMSC is proud to welcome Dr. Gupta back to the 2020 MAEMS conference being held April 1st - 4th!!

Dr. Gupta joined Wellstar Health System in 2013 as a Neuroendovascular specialist with subspecialty training in Stroke and Neurocritical Care. He graduated from Columbia University School of Engineering with a major in Chemical Engineering in 1995. He completed his Neurology Residency at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in 2003 and went on to complete a Stroke/Neurocritical Care Fellowship at Cleveland Clinic and
a Neuroendovascular Fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He
later received a MBA from Georgia Tech in 2013.

Since graduating from fellowship, Dr. Gupta has been passionate about advancing stroke care nationally and internationally. He has published over 150 manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals, over 100 invited lectures internationally on acute stroke care and systems of care and was one of the found members of the Society of Vascular and
lnterventional Neurology. He serves as Associate Editor to the Journal of Neuroimaging,
Journal of Neurointerventional Surgery and lnterventional Neurology.

Since joining Wellstar, he has dedicated himself towards building and improving stroke care. He developed the first neurocritical care service at Kennestone Hospital to manage and care for patients with complex neurovascular disease states as well as complex neurocritical care conditions. The service has expanded from one physician to five physicians and 8 nurse practitioners with consistently the highest HCAP scores of the ICU's at Kennestone. The demand for these services have outpaced bed availability and continues to grow. Additionally, there has been a surge in the need for endovascular services resultant from the building of these services.

He has spent time working with the WRI in developing research studies to be conducted at Kennestone Hospital. Since joining Wellstar, there have been over 350 patients enrolled in an international research study. Wellstar is the leading enroller in 3 international trials and has become recognized internationally as contributing high quality research data and recognized as a stroke center of excellence. Physicians, coordinators and executives reach out frequently to learn more about the service and how it was developed given it international visibility with enrollment in trials. He is currently working on a multi-center trial in collaboration with Cedar Sinai and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center to determine the impact of hypothermia and cooling on stroke victims undergoing clot retrieval. The study has been funded with an anticipated start date in the summer of 2017

Dr. Gupta works tirelessly with EMS outreach in order to identify stroke victims in the field and rapidly triage them to hospitals with endovascular capabilities. Through a
series of lectures, hands on seminars and other educational opportunities over 500
EMS providers received educational CEU's last year. This involved over 10 counties including (Pickens. Gilmer, Raybun, Fulton, Cobb, Paulding, Douglas, Coweta, Floyd, Union, Gwinett, etc.). The results of this education have led to patients with large stroke syndromes coming to Kennestone directly from the field and being treated more expeditiously with improved outcomes. The results of this work were published in a major journal with the American Heart Association working on pathways nationally to mimic these protocols.

Or. Gupta and his colleagues have worked on internal processes to reduce door to needle times for the delivery of intravenous t-PA in stroke victims suffering from acute stroke within 4.5 hours of symptom onset. In 2013 roughly 50 patients received IV t-PA in the Kennestone ER with an average time of 63 minutes from door to needle. Since
implementation of the new CODE FAST process there were 150 patients treated with IV
t-PA in 2016 with an average door to needle time of 26 minutes. These results were published a major neurological journal with many center reaching out to Wellstar to assist in working on their processes.

Lastly, there is work being done to deliver telestroke services for all of the legacy and non-legacy Wellstar Hospitals as well as non-Wellstar Hospitals. The aim of this
program is to identify patients with acute stroke and ensure they receive IV t-PA at their local emergency room in timely and efficient manner. The anticipated roll out of this program is in the latter part of 2017. It is anticipated this work will lead to patients receiving expert care with reduced variability across the system.
