Infant Chest Compression

2018-08-08 16:21:11 | BioPortfolio


our aim was to quantitatively compare the quality of chest-compression of the new two thumb chest compression (nTTT) versus the current standard techniques: two finger technique (TFT), two thumb technique (TTHT) as defined by systolic-, diastolic-, mean arterial- and pulse-pressures. Our hypothesis is that nTTT generates higher arterial blood pressures compared to the established TFT and TTHT in an infant manikin model.


To simulate the scenario of infant CPR, an ALS Baby trainer manikin (Laerdal Medical, Stavanger, Norway) simulating a 3-month-old infant. The manikin was connected with a fixed-volume arterial system attached to a monitor (Draeger Infinity® Delta; Draegerwerk AG & Co. KGaA, Luebeck, Germany) via an arterial pressure transducer (Edward Lifesciences: TruWave Disposable Pressure Transducer; Irvine, CA, USA). The arterial circuit composed of a 50-mL bag of normal saline solution (air removed) attached to the manikin chest plate and connected to the transducer with a 20-gauge intravenous catheter and tubing. The manikin was placed on a high adjustable hospital stretcher. The bed was leveled to the iliac crest of each rescuer for standardization. The manikin was previously intubated and ventilation was performed using a resuscitator bag.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
