In out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) on scene occurs only in a minority of patients. The optimal duration of resuscitation on scene before transport with ongoing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is unknown.

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...
Although patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) have a lower survival rate during night-time than during day-time, the cause of this difference remains unclear. We aimed to assess CPR par...
Hypoxic liver injury (HLI) is a frequent and life-threatening complication in critically ill patients that occurs in up to ten percent of critically ill patients. However, there is a lack of data on H...
Regionalization of care for out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA) may improve patient outcomes. We evaluated inter-hospital variations in post-arrest care provision and the relation between hospital ...
Only up to 20% of patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) receive immediate and optimal initial cardiac resuscitation and consequently regain consciousness soon after return of spontaneous...
Cardiac arrest occurs frequently and the outcome after out-of-hospital resuscitation is often fatal. Disturbing is that more than half of the surviving patients suffer from permanent impai...
In the U.S. alone, over 300,000 people per year have sudden out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), and less than 1 out of 10 survive. The current standard practice for treating OHCA is to ...
The purpose of this study is to analyse transitions in cardiac rhythm and hemodynamic variables during resuscitation of patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest.
In Ontario, most people who experience a cardiac arrest at home (when their heart stops beating) only receive basic life support from Primary Care Paramedics (PCPs) and all are transported...
This study will evaluated the epidemiology and the outcomes of patients suffering out-of-hospital cardiac arrest with presumed cardiac etiology in Korea.
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).
Interactions between hospital staff or administrators and patients. Includes guest relations programs designed to improve the image of the hospital and attract patients.
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.
