A qualitative study on conveyance decision-making during emergency call outs to people with dementia: The HOMEWARD project (2020)
Journal Article
Voss, S., Brandling, J., Pollard, K., Taylor, H., Black, S., Buswell, M., …Benger, J. (2020). A qualitative study on conveyance decision-making during emergency call outs to people with dementia: The HOMEWARD project. BMC Emergency Medicine, 20(1), https://doi.org/10.1186/s12873-020-0306-6

Background Paramedics are increasingly required to make complex decisions as to whether they should convey a patient to hospital or manage their condition at the scene. Dementia can be a significant barrier to the assessment process. However, to our...

Taxonomy of the form and function of primary care services in or alongside emergency departments: Concepts paper (2019)
Journal Article
Cooper, A., Edwards, M., Brandling, J., Carson-Stevens, A., Cooke, M., Davies, F., …Edwards, A. (2019). Taxonomy of the form and function of primary care services in or alongside emergency departments: Concepts paper. Emergency Medicine Journal, 36(10), 625-630. https://doi.org/10.1136/emermed-2018-208305

Primary care services in or alongside emergency departments look and function differently and are described using inconsistent terminology. Research to determine effectiveness of these models is hampered by outdated classification systems, limiting t...

Cluster randomised comparison of the effectiveness of 100% oxygen versus titrated oxygen in patients with a sustained return of spontaneous circulation following out of hospital cardiac arrest: A feasibility study. PROXY: Post ROSC OXYgenation study (2019)
Journal Article
Thomas, M., Voss, S., Benger, J., Kirby, K., & Nolan, J. P. (2019).

Background: Hyperoxia following out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is associated with a poor outcome. Animal data suggest the first hour post resuscitation may be the most important. In the UK the first hour usually occurs in the prehospital envir...

Background: Evidence to support device choice in intraosseous access is lacking in UK paramedic practice. Being unable to access the sternum with devices may result in under-treatment because of the inability to gain timely vascular access. This repr...
