The aim of ARREST is to determine the best post-resuscitation care pathway for out of hospital cardiac arrest patients without ST-segment elevation. The investigators propose that changes ...
The purpose of this study is to look at two different treatments during a cardiac arrest that occurs outside of the hospital and whether either or both treatments will increase the number ...
Observational study of all out-of-hospital cardiac arrest during 6 months in regional areas of Helsinki University Hospital and Kuopio University Hospital from activation of EMS system unt...
Silesian Registry of Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest (SIL-OHCA) which is an initiative of the Voivodeship Rescue Service in Katowice in cooperation with the Silesian Center for Heart Diseas...
The purpose of this study is to analyse transitions in cardiac rhythm and hemodynamic variables during resuscitation of patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest.
Clinical providers have access to a number of pharmacologic agents during in-hospital cardiac arrest. Few studies have explored medication administration patterns during in-hospital cardiac arrest. He...
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...
Bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has increased in several countries following nationwide initiatives to facilitate bystander resuscitative efforts in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA)...
Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survivors suffer from psychological distress and cognitive impairments. They experience existential insecurity and vulnerability and are striving to return to a life in ...
The targets for vital parameters following return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) from an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) are based on studies carried out predominantly in intensive care units...
Occurrence of heart arrest in an individual when there is no immediate access to medical personnel or equipment.
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.
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.
A procedure to stop the contraction of MYOCARDIUM during HEART SURGERY. It is usually achieved with the use of chemicals (CARDIOPLEGIC SOLUTIONS) or cold temperature (such as chilled perfusate).
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).
