Attitudes towards Research and Research Nurses among the clinical team in an Emergency Department (ED) and Acute Medical Unit (AMU)
Attitudes towards Research and Research Nurses
Patients commonly present to the Emergency Department with epistaxsis (nose bleed). Standard first aid measures such as applying pressure can often stem bleeding however in more severe cases of epistaxsis further treatment is required.
Novel Use of Tranexamic Acid to Reduce the Need for Nasal Packing
1. Ambulatory Device, Rocket Pleural vent insertion
2. Standard Treatment, Aspiration +/- chest drain
Primary Outcome Measures
To assess whether use of an ambulatory device (Rocket Pleural Vent) and treatment strategy reduces hospital stay. Total length of stay in hospital up to 30 days post randomisation. Up to 30 days post randomisation.
