Extracorporeal Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation for Cardiac Arrest: A Systematic Review.

To assess the use of extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR), compared with manual or mechanical cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) and in-hospi...

Capnography during cardiac arrest.

Successful resuscitation from cardiac arrest depends on provision of adequate blood flow to vital organs generated by cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Measurement of end-tidal expiratory pressure ...

Comparison of presumed cardiac and respiratory causes of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

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. ...

Implementation of the Cardiac Arrest Sonographic Assessment (CASA) protocol for patients with cardiac arrest is associated with shorter CPR pulse checks.

We aim to evaluate whether implementation of the "Cardiac Arrest Sonographic Assessment" (CASA) protocol reduces the duration of interruptions in CPR during resuscitation of cardiac arrest (CA) compar...

Duration of CPR and impact on 30-day survival after ROSC for in-hospital cardiac arrest-a Swedish cohort study.

Resuscitation on in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA) is estimated to occur in 200,000 hospitalised patients annually in the US. The duration of the resuscitation attempt, measured as minutes of cardiopu...

Prospective Assessment Project About Cardiac Arrest Resuscitation

In case of a cardiac arrest it is very important to quickly provide high quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). For reasons of patient safety the investigators want to assess the fre...

Emergency Preservation and Resuscitation (EPR) for Cardiac Arrest From Trauma

The goal of this study is to rapidly cool trauma victims who have suffered cardiac arrest from bleeding with a flush of ice-cold sodium chloride to preserve the patient to enable surgical ...

Multicenter Registry Study With Therapeutic Hypothermia After Cardiac Arrest in Japan

Recently, early defibrillation and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for sudden onset of cardiac arrest are advancing, however, survival rate is still very low in the world. Furthermore,...

In-hospital Cardiac Arrest - Dynamics and State Transitions

The purpose of this study is to analyse transitions in cardiac rhythm and hemodynamic variables during resuscitation of patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest.

Cardiac Arrest Survival Score (CRASS)

Survival following cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) depends on numerous prehospital and in-hospital variables and interventions. The aim of th...

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.

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.
