81. Mental health outcomes after major trauma in Ontario: a population-based analysis

Mental health outcomes after major trauma in Ontario: a population-based analysis Major injury continues to be a common source of morbidity and mortality; improving the functional recovery of survivors of major trauma requires a better understanding of the mental health outcomes that may occur in this population. We assessed the association between major trauma and the development of a new mental health diagnosis or death by suicide.We completed a population-based, self-controlled, longitudinal (...) cohort analysis using linked administrative data on patients treated for major trauma in Ontario between 2005 and 2010. All survivors were included and composite rates of mental health diagnoses during inpatient admissions were compared between the 5 years after injury and the 5 years before injury, using Poisson regression with generalized estimating equations. The incidence of suicide was calculated for the 5 years after injury. Risk factors for suicide were calculated using Cox proportional hazard

Novel preclinical murine model of trauma-induced elbow stiffness Peri-articular injury may result in functional deficits and pain. In particular, post-traumatic elbow stiffness is a debilitating condition, precluding patients from performing activities of daily living. As such, clinicians and basic scientists alike, aim to develop novel therapeutic interventions to prevent and treat elbow stiffness; thereby reducing patient morbidity.

88. Trauma-intrusive hallucinations and the dissociative state (PubMed)

Trauma-intrusive hallucinations and the dissociative state Research has supported a model of dissociation mediating the experience of hearing voices in traumatised individuals.To further understand this model by examining subtypes of the dissociative experience involved in trauma-intrusive hallucinations.The study involved four hospitals, 11 psychiatrists and 69 participants assessed using the Psychotic Symptoms Rating scale, the PTSD Symptoms Scale Interview and the Dissociative Subtype (...) of PTSD Score.In total, 59% (n = 41) of the participants heard voices and they were compared with the 41% (n = 28) who did not. The severity of PTSD symptoms did not predict experience of hearing voices. Regression analysis indicated that two scales of dissociation (derealisation/depersonalisation and loss of awareness) were equally good predictors of the extent of hearing voices. Adding other possible predictors (age of trauma <18, sexual violence) was relevant but did not enhance the prediction.This

Prehospital Plasma during Air Medical Transport in Trauma Patients at Risk for Hemorrhagic Shock. After a person has been injured, prehospital administration of plasma in addition to the initiation of standard resuscitation procedures in the prehospital environment may reduce the risk of downstream complications from hemorrhage and shock. Data from large clinical trials are lacking to show either the efficacy or the risks associated with plasma transfusion in the prehospital setting.To (...) randomization (log-rank chi-square test, 5.70; P=0.02). The median prothrombin-time ratio was lower in the plasma group than in the standard-care group (1.2 [interquartile range, 1.1 to 1.4] vs. 1.3 [interquartile range, 1.1 to 1.6], P<0.001) after the patients' arrival at the trauma center.

mHealth solutions for early interventions after trauma: improvements and considerations for assessment and intervention throughout the acute post-trauma period Interventions administered shortly after a traumatic event have the potential to prevent posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and related mental health conditions. A key challenge in delivering such interventions is understanding how PTSD symptoms develop in the acute post-trauma period, defined as the first 30 days after a trauma (...) . Mobile devices have the potential to transform the way symptoms are assessed and how treatment is delivered in that they can capture the dynamic and nuanced nature of symptom progression after trauma. Symptoms can be assessed through active strategies that require user input, such as self-report, or through passive strategies, such as location information. Adaptive mobile interventions can be tailored to target PTSD symptoms as they appear and ultimately prevent more chronic courses of illness
