Summary of "Predicting outcomes in traumatic out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: the relevance of Utstein factors."

Given low survival rates in cases of traumatic out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), there is a need to identify factors associated with outcomes. We aimed to investigate Utstein factors associated with achieving return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) and survival to hospital in traumatic OHCA.

Traumatic cardiac arrest is associated with lower survival rate vs. medical cardiac arrest - results from the French national registry.

The survival from traumatic vs. medical out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) are not yet well described. The objective of this study was to compare survival to hospital discharge and 30-day survival ...

Arrest etiology among patients resuscitated from cardiac arrest.

Cardiac arrest etiology is often assigned according to the Utstein template, which differentiates medical (formerly "presumed cardiac") from other causes. These categories are poorly defined, contain ...

Trends Over Time in Drug Administration During Adult In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest.

Clinical providers have access to a number of pharmacologic agents during in-hospital cardiac arrest. Few studies have explored medication administration patterns during in-hospital cardiac arrest. He...

Implementation of a Bundle of Utstein Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Programs to Improve Survival Outcomes after Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest in a Metropolis: A Before and After Study.

The study aimed to determine the effect of community implementation of a bundles of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) programs on outcomes in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA).

Lived experiences of surviving in-hospital cardiac arrest.

Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survivors suffer from psychological distress and cognitive impairments. They experience existential insecurity and vulnerability and are striving to return to a life in ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Occurrence of heart arrest in an individual when there is no immediate access to medical personnel or equipment.

The omission of atrial activation that is caused by transient cessation of impulse generation at the SINOATRIAL NODE. It is characterized by a prolonged pause without P wave in an ELECTROCARDIOGRAM. Sinus arrest has been associated with sleep apnea (REM SLEEP-RELATED SINUS ARREST).

Cessation of heart beat or MYOCARDIAL CONTRACTION. If it is treated within a few minutes, heart arrest can be reversed in most cases to normal cardiac rhythm and effective circulation.

A potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia that is characterized by uncoordinated extremely rapid firing of electrical impulses (400-600/min) in HEART VENTRICLES. Such asynchronous ventricular quivering or fibrillation prevents any effective cardiac output and results in unconsciousness (SYNCOPE). It is one of the major electrocardiographic patterns seen with CARDIAC ARREST.

The hospital department responsible for the administration and provision of diagnostic and therapeutic services for the cardiac patient.
