Summary of "A Case of Neurologically Intact Survival after 2 hours and 50 minutes of Euthermic Cardiac Arrest Treated with Mechanical CPR and Intra-arrest Percutaneous Coronary Intervention."

We report a case of a 56 year old male in ventricular fibrillation (VF) cardiac arrest for a total of 2 hours and 50 minutes who was diagnosed with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) during a brief 10 min period of ROSC. The patient underwent successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) while receiving mechanical chest compressions for ongoing VF. Our case demonstrates the potential for neurologically intact survival in VF cardiac arrest patients despite prolonged periods of VF who are treated with mechanical CPR and intra-arrest PCI.

Early On-Scene Management of Pediatric Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Can Result in Improved Chances for Neurologically-Intact Survival.

To evaluate the frequency of neurologically-intact survival (SURV) following pediatric out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (POHCA) when comparing traditional early evacuation strategies to those emphasizin...

Visual and visuomotor processing of hands and tools as a case study of cross talk between the dorsal and ventral streams.

A major principle of organization of the visual system is between a dorsal stream that processes visuomotor information and a ventral stream that supports object recognition. Most research has focused...

Effects of prehospital epinephrine administration on neurologically intact survival in bystander-witnessed out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients with non-shockable rhythm depend on prehospital cardiopulmonary resuscitation duration required to hospital arrival.

The effects of prehospital epinephrine administration on post-arrest neurological outcome in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients with non-shockable rhythm remain unclear. To examine the tim...

Predicting neurologically intact survival after in-hospital cardiac arrest-external validation of the Good Outcome Following Attempted Resuscitation score.

A do-not-attempt-resuscitation order is issued when it is against the wishes of the patient that cardiopulmonary resuscitation is performed, or when the chance of good quality survival is minimal. The...

SIMPLE INTERMITTENT RESISTANCE ACTIVITY MITIGATES THE DETRIMENTAL EFFECT OF PROLONGED UNBROKEN SITTING ON ARTERIAL FUNCTION IN OVERWEIGHT AND OBESE ADULTS.

Prolonged sitting contributes to cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. The underlying mechanisms are unknown, but may include changes in arterial function and vasoactive mediators. We examined the effect...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An acylated inactive complex of streptokinase and human lysine-plasminogen. After injection, the acyl group is slowly hydrolyzed, producing an activator that converts plasminogen to plasmin, thereby initiating fibrinolysis. Its half-life is about 90 minutes compared to 5 minutes for TPA; (TISSUE PLASMINOGEN ACTIVATOR); 16 minutes for UROKINASE-TYPE PLASMINOGEN ACTIVATOR and 23 minutes for STREPTOKINASE. If treatment is initiated within 3 hours of onset of symptoms for acute myocardial infarction, the drug preserves myocardial tissue and left ventricular function and increases coronary artery patency. Bleeding complications are similar to other thrombolytic agents.

The duration of a surgical procedure in hours and minutes.

The administration of liquid medication or nutrients under the skin, usually over minutes or hours.

The administration of liquid medication, nutrient, or other fluid through some other route than the alimentary canal, usually over minutes or hours, either by gravity flow or often by infusion pumping.

The long-term (minutes to hours) administration of a fluid into the vein through venipuncture, either by letting the fluid flow by gravity or by pumping it.
