QUO VADIS is a national observational study with the aim to describe clinical intervention and utilization of neuroprognostication tools in the management of patients admitted to ICU following cardiac arrest
Despite recent improvements in post-resuscitation care, about 50% of patients resuscitated from cardiac arrest die or have poor neurological prognosis. Post-anoxic brain injury is common after cardiac arrest and is a major cause of post-resuscitation mortality. Since there has been a significant investment in improving the emergency response to both in-hospital ad out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA and OHCA, respectevly) patients and reported improvements in short-term survival outcomes, the long-term neurological state and quality of life of survivors and their caregiver is of growing significance.
QUO VADIS is a national observational study created to describe clinical interventions and utilization of neuroprognostication tools in the management of patients admitted to ICU following cardiac arrest.
The aims of the study are:
- To create an Italian Registry that describes clinical interventions and neuroprognostication tools used in the management of patients admitted to ICU following cardiac arrest
- To evaluate, after one year from the cardiac arrest, the neurological outcome and the quality of life of the patients;
- To evaluate, after one year from the cardiac arrest, the quality of life of caregivers;
- To identify the most effective clinical intervention in the management of post-cardiac arrest patients admitted to ICU;
- To create a prognostic model for patients admitted to ICU after cardiac arrest.

Each year around 2000 children have a cardiac arrest in the United Kingdom (UK) and approximately one fifth are admitted to Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. Many of these children eventually...
Cardiac arrest in the intensive care unit (ICU-CA) is a common and highly morbid event. We investigated the preventability of ICU-CAs and identified targets for future intervention.
Elevated cardiac troponin levels have been shown to be associated with a poor prognosis under some intensive care conditions. This study investigated whether inclusion of high-sensitivity troponin T (...

Recent research has demonstrated value in selected therapeutic and prognostic interventions delivered to patients following cardiac arrest. The aim of this work was to determine if the implementation ...
The probability of surviving a cardiac arrest remains low. International resuscitation guidelines state that extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) may have a role in selected patients su...

Hospital units providing continuous surveillance and care to acutely ill infants and children. Neonates are excluded since INTENSIVE CARE UNITS, NEONATAL is available.
Organization of medical and nursing care according to the degree of illness and care requirements in the hospital. The elements are intensive care, intermediate care, self-care, long-term care, and organized home care.
Occurrence of heart arrest in an individual when there is no immediate access to medical personnel or equipment.
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).
