Mechanical Versus Manual Chest Compression

2019-09-02 23:47:52 | BioPortfolio


In this study, the investigators compared mechanical and manual chest compressions in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest cases.


In this study, the investigators retrospectively analyzed resuscitations performed over a 2-year period and compared manual and mechanical chest compressions in terms of return of spontaneous circulation, 30-day survival, and hospital discharge parameters.

Chest Compression During Resuscitation

The aim of the study was to evaluate the new mechanical chest compression machine LifeLine ARM in healthcare professionals in simulated model of cardiac arrest.

Estimation of CPR Chest Compression Depth

Optimal chest compression depth during CPR is 4.56cm which is at variance with the current guidelines of 5.0-6.0cm. A change in guidelines is only worthwhile if healthcare professionals ca...

Effectiveness of Chest Compressions Under Mild Hypoxia

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of breathing a slightly reduced amount of oxygen will have on a rescuer's ability to provide chest compressions during CPR.

Combining Performance of Call EMS and Simultaneous Chest Compressions in a Lone Rescuer CPR

Investigators designed the novel combining technique that rescuer start the chest compression with one hand during calling for help to the Emergency Medical System (EMS) via a cell phone w...

Pressure Support During Chest Wall Compression

The purpose of this study is to compare two physiotherapy techniques: chest wall compression versus chest wall compression plus increase of 10 cmH2O in inspiratory pressure.

Acute Chest Pain: A Stepwise Approach To Diagnosis.

Acute chest pain is one of the most important cardinal symptoms in medicine. There are several important differential diagnoses for chest pain. Therefore, a thorough history and physical examination, ...

Chest Compression Release Velocity Factors During Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Resuscitation.

Higher chest compression release velocity (CCRV) has been associated with better outcomes after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), and patient factors have been associated with variations in chest...

Real-time feedback improves chest compression quality in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: A prospective cohort study.

Current guidelines underline the importance of high-quality chest compression during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), to improve outcomes. Contrary to this many studies show that chest compression...

Synchronized Chest Compressions for Pseudo-PEA: Proof of Concept and a Synching Algorithm.

The two objectives of this report are: first, to describe a comparison of chest compressions unsynchronized or synchronized to native cardiac activity in a porcine model of hypotension, and second, to...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A respiratory support system used to remove mucus and clear airway by oscillating pressure on the chest.

Respiratory syndrome characterized by the appearance of a new pulmonary infiltrate on chest x-ray, accompanied by symptoms of fever, cough, chest pain, tachypnea, or DYSPNEA, often seen in patients with SICKLE CELL ANEMIA. Multiple factors (e.g., infection, and pulmonary FAT EMBOLISM) may contribute to the development of the syndrome.

Pressure, burning, or numbness in the chest.

The posture of an individual supported by the knees and chest resting on a table.

X-ray screening of large groups of persons for diseases of the lung and heart by means of radiography of the chest.
