Pediatric cardiac arrest is an uncommon but critical life-threatening event requiring effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). About 16,000 pediatric cardiac arrests occurs in the Un...
The investigators aimed to evaluate the effect of AMCPR (Augmented-Medication CardioPulmonary Resuscitation: administration of additional vasopressin to titrate to arterial diastolic blood...
1. Pre-shock cardiopulmonary resuscitation might benefit the survival of out-of-hospital cardiac patients with ventricular fibrillation / ventricular tachycardia in a post-hoc an...
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 ...
The purpose of this study is to analyse transitions in cardiac rhythm and hemodynamic variables during resuscitation of patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest.
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...
To primarily assess documentation during in-hospital cardiopulmonary arrest resuscitation and to secondarily observe cardiopulmonary resuscitation event and outcome variables.
Although the importance of bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation has been shown in multiple studies, the rate of bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation is still relatively low in many countries. Li...
For an effective dispatcher-assisted cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) program, recognition of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) by a dispatcher is the first step in initiating bystander CPR. Th...
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 ...
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.
Accidental injuries caused by brief high-voltage electrical discharges during thunderstorms. Cardiopulmonary arrest, coma and other neurologic symptoms, myocardial necrosis, and dermal burns are common. Prompt treatment of the acute sequelae, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is indicated for survival.
The use of sophisticated methods and equipment to treat cardiopulmonary arrest. Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) includes the use of specialized equipment to maintain the airway, early defibrillation and pharmacological therapy.
Care of patients with deficiencies and abnormalities associated with the cardiopulmonary system. It includes the therapeutic use of medical gases and their administrative apparatus, environmental control systems, humidification, aerosols, ventilatory support, bronchopulmonary drainage and exercise, respiratory rehabilitation, assistance with cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and maintenance of natural, artificial, and mechanical airways.
Occurrence of heart arrest in an individual when there is no immediate access to medical personnel or equipment.
