Improving Emergency Transport

For some emergency patients, transport on a backboard may compromise survival.





Trauma Pre-Hospital Research

Dr. Haut recently published the results of an Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma (EAST) Multi-Institutional Trial:  “The Role of Pre-Hospital Care on Outcomes of Urban Gunshot Wound (GSW) Patients”



Pioneering Prevention Strategies for the ICU



Is venous thromboembolism a significant problem in critically ill patients?

Venous thromboembolism (VTE), the combined term for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), is one of the most common complications for patients in the intensive care unit (ICU). VTE causes approximately 200,000 deaths per year in the United States (more than AIDS and breast cancer combined).  Read More -
Venous Thromboembolism: Are Regulatory Requirements Reasonable?




Shooting and stabbing victims immobilized to protect their spines might be twice as likely to die because of the delay in transporting them to the hospital, Johns Hopkins researchers conclude in a new study that could trigger a review of treatment protocols used by Maryland paramedics.

Immobilization is standard procedure for paramedics in Maryland and many communities across the country, and the study could have particular significance in Baltimore, where 218 people were fatally shot or stabbed last year.

Immobilization "shouldn't be applied to every single patient who is shot or stabbed because it uses up precious time and doesn't necessarily benefit the patient," said Dr. Elliott R. Haut, lead author of the study published today in the Journal of Trauma.

Frequent collaborator Michael Streiff, M.D., of Johns Hopkins Medicine, joins Dr. Haut to comment on a ruling by the CMS (US Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services).  Read more:  The CMS Ruling on Venous Thromboembolism After Total Knee and Hip Arthroplasty - Weighing the Risks and Benefits.

Does Screening Variability Make DVT an Unreliable Quality Measure of Trauma Care?

DVT is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in trauma patients, yet may be completely asymptomatic until the clot embolizes and causes sudden death from massive pulmonary embolism.  Dr. Haut is working on correlating hospital-level DVT rates with the presence/absence of a screening protocol using the National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB). A multi-level analysis is being performed which looks at DVT predictors on an individual level.

This is a Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Award for Dr. Haut (see proposal summary).  It builds upon the candidate's strengths and prior research skills, while utilizing the unique opportunities of The Johns Hopkins University.  The mentorship of Dr. Peter Pronovost (left) and formal advanced degree coursework in the Graduate Training Program in Clinical Investigation (GTPCI), give Dr. Haut the tools and training to advance to the level of a fully independent health services researcher.



This pocket book succinctly describes 318 errors commonly made by attendings, residents, interns, nurses, and nurse-anesthetists in the intensive care unit, and gives practical, easy-to-remember tips for avoiding these errors. The book can easily be read immediately before the start of a rotation or used for quick reference on call.

Each error is described in a short, clinically relevant vignette, followed by a list of things that should always or never be done in that context and tips on how to avoid or ameliorate problems. Coverage includes all areas of ICU practice except the pediatric intensive care unit.  Avoiding Common ICU Errors

Dr. Haut is Associate Professor of Surgery and Anesthesiology & Critical Care Medicine at Johns Hopkins. He a member of the Department of Surgery's Division of Acute Care Surgery and is the Director of the Trauma/Acute Care Surgery Fellowship at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

His clinical interests are in the treatment of traumatic injuries, acute care general surgery, and the management of critically ill patients in the intensive care unit.

He is an active clinical researcher in the fields of trauma outcomes and systems of care. His main trauma research interests relate to trauma systems, trauma education, and trauma care delivery models. He also has a strong research focus on prevention of venous thromboembolism (VTE), including deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE).
