TL;DR: This paper profiles natural disasters, transportation incidents, emerging infectious diseases, complex disasters and terrorism for their historical and future potential impact on Australasia.
Abstract: Disaster epidemiology reveals epidemic increases in incidence of disasters. Rare disasters with catastrophic consequences also threaten modern populations. This paper profiles natural disasters, transportation incidents, emerging infectious diseases, complex disasters and terrorism for their historical and future potential impact on Australasia. Emergency physicians are in a position to assume leadership roles within the disaster management community in Australasia. The Australasian College for Emergency Medicine is in a position to lead medical specialty advances in disaster medicine in Australasia. To optimize its impact in disaster medicine, the specialty and its College have opportunities for advances in key areas of College administration, intra and interinstitutional representation, disaster preparedness and planning, disaster relief operations, education and training programs, applied clinical research, and faculty development.
TL;DR: A successful TAVR is described for a patient with severe AR that was unsuitable for SAVR due to her high surgical risk.
Abstract: Severe aortic regurgitation (AR), when intervention is required, is best managed by surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR). Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) for aortic stenosis has recently shown non-inferiority to SAVR and superiority to medical management. Here we describe a successful TAVR for a patient with severe AR that was unsuitable for SAVR due to her high surgical risk.
TL;DR: A case initially referred for lung transplantation is presented, where sequential left upper lobe BLVR and 7 years later right upper lobe SLVR are presented, providing enduring physiological and functional improvement.
Abstract: Bronchoscopic Lung Volume Reduction (BLVR) and Surgical Lung Volume Reduction (SLVR) and are two different approaches used to remodel severely emphysematous lungs to improve lung function and quality-of-life. We present a case initially referred for lung transplantation, where sequential left upper lobe BLVR and 7 years later right upper lobe SLVR, providing enduring physiological and functional improvement. The potential for sustained benefit via sequential unilateral lung volume reduction is under-appreciated.
