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 United States annually. Only 8% of the patients survive to hospital discharge and of these, up to two-thirds have neurological sequelae. Majority of pediatric cardiac arrest are below age of two and have poorer chance of survival versus older children

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...
Participants were 45 first-year medical students randomly assigned to cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) self-training using either a video-based presentation or a serious game developed ...
The investigators aimed to evaluate the effect of AMCPR (Augmented-Medication CardioPulmonary Resuscitation: administration of additional vasopressin to titrate to arterial diastolic blood...
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) occurs approximately 200,000 times/yr in hospitals in the UnitedStates, with 18% of patients surviving to discharge. Just over half of these survivors a...
Children's education students are able to identify a possible emergency and in their case act appropriately. The authors think that the propsed training will improve the knowledge, change...
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a method to improve survival of patients with cardiac arrest. This study aimed to identify the key genes affected five minutes after cardiac arrest, hoping to el...
Cardiac arrest is an event with a limited prognosis which has not substantially changed since the first description of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in 1960. A promising new treatment approach m...
Bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has increased in several countries following nationwide initiatives to facilitate bystander resuscitative efforts in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA)...
Extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) is a resource-intensive tool that provides haemodynamic and respiratory support in patients who have suffered cardiac arrest. In this study, we inve...
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is often started irrespective of comorbidity or cause of arrest. We aimed to determine the prevalence of perception of inappropriate CPR of the last 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.
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.
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.
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.
Diversion of the flow of blood from the entrance of the right atrium directly to the aorta (or femoral artery) via an oxygenator thus bypassing both the heart and lungs.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
