Successful cardiopulmonary resuscitation in prone position.
Summary of "Successful cardiopulmonary resuscitation in prone position."
In certain surgical positions standard cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) cannot be carried out. It is sometimes impossible or time-consuming to establish a supine position without increasing the no-flow-time and therefore creating a negative outcome of the patient. The case of CPR in a prone position during an emergency evacuation of a cerebellar hematoma is reported. The resuscitation was initiated in the prone position to decrease the no-flow-time. This was very effective because the return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) started before turning the patient to the supine position. Resuscitation in the prone position in this case was equally as effective as in the traditional supine position.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The artificial substitution of heart and lung action as indicated for HEART ARREST resulting from electric shock, DROWNING, respiratory arrest, or other causes. The two major components of cardiopulmonary resuscitation are artificial ventilation (RESPIRATION, ARTIFICIAL) and closed-chest CARDIAC MASSAGE.
Accidental injuries caused by brief high-voltage electrical discharges during thunderstorms. Cardiopulmonary arrest, coma and other neurologic symptoms, myocardial necrosis, and dermal burns are common. Prompt treatment of the acute sequelae, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is indicated for survival.
Care of patients with deficiencies and abnormalities associated with the cardiopulmonary system. It includes the therapeutic use of medical gases and their administrative apparatus, environmental control systems, humidification, aerosols, ventilatory support, bronchopulmonary drainage and exercise, respiratory rehabilitation, assistance with cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and maintenance of natural, artificial, and mechanical airways.
The posture of an individual lying face down.
The restoration to life or consciousness of one apparently dead. (Dorland, 27th ed)
