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.

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 ...
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 ...
Due to collapse and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) maneuvers, major traumatic injuries may complicate the course of resuscitation for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients (OHCA). Our goals wer...
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).
Most interventional and observational studies include cardiac arrest from cardiac origin. However, an increasing proportion of cardiac arrest results from an extra-cardiac origin, mainly respiratory. ...
The primary aim of this study is to investigate the feasibility and complications of inserting a REBOA-catheter to patients suffering from non-traumatic out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, by ...
Out-of-hospital and in-hospital cardiac arrest (CA) requiring intensive care unit management. Data collection using a standardized form : demographic data and data related to the CA accor...
Observational study of all out-of-hospital cardiac arrest during 6 months in regional areas of Helsinki University Hospital and Kuopio University Hospital from activation of EMS system unt...
This study was performed to determine the prognosis of patients after cardiac arrest using serum markers called NGAL. The initial NGAL values of patients with post-cardiac arrest syndrome ...
Objective: To assess neurologic prognostication by early Transcranial Doppler Sonography (TCD) in comatose survivors after cardiac arrest. Design: Prospective study between May 2016 and N...
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.
Anxiety is caused by stress. It is a natural reaction, and is beneficial in helping us deal with tense situations and pressure. It is deterimental when is becomes an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations. The most common types of anxiety di...
