To provide an overview of cadaver models for cardiac arrest and to identify the most appropriate cadaver model to improve cardiopulmonary resuscitation through a systematic review.
This article was published in the following journal.
To perform a systematic review to answer 'In adults with attempted resuscitation after non-traumatic cardiac arrest does care at a specialised cardiac arrest centre (CAC) compared to care in a healthc...
To systematically review the literature on the use of vasopressors during adult cardiac arrest to inform an update of international guidelines.
Cardiac arrest related to accidental hypothermia may occur at temperatures below 32 °C. Our goal was to describe the clinical characteristics and outcomes of patients who suffered from witnessed hy...
In-hospital cardiac arrest is common and associated with a high mortality rate. Despite this, in-hospital cardiac arrest has received little attention compared with other high-risk cardiovascular cond...
The International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation prioritized the need to update the review on the use of targeted temperature management (TTM) in paediatric post cardiac arrest care. In this meta-...
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 ...
The addition of an Extracorporeal-Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (ECPR) service to a region may improve the survival of young patients with sudden unexpected cardiac arrest.The primary aim ...
Several studies show how patients with hyperoxia after cardiac arrest has increased mortality, but the association of hyperoxia before cardiac arrest and myocardial damage has never been i...
Experimental studies and previous clinical trials suggest an improvement in mortality and neurological function with hypothermia after cardiac arrest. However, the accrued evidence is inco...
In this study, we want to find out whether the recognition of cardiac arrest using a smart watch is feasible or not. If this idea is possible, the recognition of cardiac arrest using the s...
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 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.
