The lead article is an AAST presentation by Dr. Fred Pieracci and colleagues from Denver Health/University of Colorado who report a prospective, controlled clinical study of rib fracture stabilization. Another timely AAST presentation was by Dr. Jennifer Hubbard et al from Fresno Community/University of California who report a retrospective review of the use of endotracheal tubes with subglottic secretion drainage. Dr. Daisy Chou and associates from Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles analyze the impact of field intubation in patients with hemorrhagic shock. Finally, I would like to highlight the systematic review of REBOA in the management of hemorrhagic shock written by Dr. Jonathan Morrison from the Glasgow Royal Infirmary and colleagues from around the world.
