Summary : The doctors who tried to save President John F. Kennedy at Parkland Hospital in November of 1963 agreed-either out of respect or fear-not to publish what they had seen, heard, and felt. Then in 1990, one of the Dallas surgeons who worked on JFK in Trauma Room One, Dr. Charles Crenshaw, decided after much deliberation that the American people ought to know the truth. "The wounds to Kennedy's head and throat that I examined were caused by bullets that struck him from the front, not the back, as the public has been led to believe," says Crenshaw. When the first edition of this book was published in 1992, under the title JFK: Conspiracy of Silence, Crenshaw revealed what he never had to opportunity to tell the Warren Commission. In the aftermath, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) called Crenshaw's book "a fabrication." But JAMA's claim did not hold up in court and Crenshaw subsequently prevailed in a defamation suit against JAMA. In the process, a number of new medical disclosures and discoveries have emerged on the startling medical cover-up of the JFK assassination. CHARLES A. CRENSHAW, M.D. (1933-2001), a Texas native, was Chairman Emeritus of the Department of Surgery and a member of the Board of Directors of the Tarrant County Hospital District in Fort Worth. He received his BS from Southern Methodist University and his MS from East Texas State University. He worked on his Ph.D. at Baylor University Graduate Research Institute in 1957 and, in 1960, he earned his M.D. from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. He interned at Veteran's Administration Hospital and completed his residency at Dallas's Parkland Memorial Hospital, where he worked for five years. He taught at many institutions, including the UT Southwestern Medical School. He was honored with inclusions in numerous medical and professional societies and was published extensively.

Summary : Pneumonia is the most common pulmonary complication seen in trauma patients. Studies of late onset pneumonia (LOP), which occurs more than four days after hospital admission, have been conducted in trauma patients but few studies have focused on risk factors for early onset pneumonia (EOP) which occurs within the first four days of hospital admission. This study sought to identify unique risk factors for EOP in adult trauma patients. A matched case-control study was conducted using subjects identified from the UCSD Medical Center Trauma Registry. Cases with EOP were matched on extent of head injury and date of admission (±6 months), in a one-to-three ratio where possible, to controls without pneumonia. Data were abstracted from the Trauma Registry and subject medical records, and conditional logistic regression used to identify significant risk factors. A second analysis was conducted with LOP cases and controls. The results of this analysis were compared to those of the EOP analysis to determine unique risk factors for EOP. Variables significant in both analyses were likely to be risk factors for pneumonia in general. Misclassified subjects were identified and further analyses conducted with misclassified subjects removed. After misclassified subjects were removed 80 EOP cases and 87 LOP cases were matched to 166 and 182 controls respectively. When head trauma was controlled for by matching, aspiration (OR 4.34, 95% CI 1.47 to 12.75), intubation in the field (OR 6.78, 95% CI 1.529 to 28.86), use of paralytic drugs (OR 3.67, 95% CI 1.20 to 11.24), and enteral feeding (OR 7.38, 95% CI 2.22 to 22.57), were identified as risks factors for the development of EOP when Glasgow Coma Score and intubation were controlled. In comparing EOP and LOP analysis results, it appears that intubation in the field is a unique risk factor for EOP. The risks identified in this study may be modified by carefully evaluating the need for intubation in the field, increased vigilance for aspiration, and limiting the duration of paralysis and enteral feeding.
