Remote Ischemic Conditioning to Enhance Resuscitation (RICE) Pilot

2020-02-16 17:40:49 | BioPortfolio


Following resuscitation from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), reperfusion injury can cause cell damage in the heart and brain. Remote ischemic conditioning (RIC) consists of intermittent application of a device such as a blood pressure cuff to a limb to induce non-lethal ischemia. Studies in animals with cardiac arrest as well as in humans with acute myocardial infarction suggest that RIC before or after restoration of blood flow may reduce injury to the heart and improve outcomes but this has not been proven in humans who have had OHCA. The RICE pilot study is a single-center study to assess the feasibility of application of RIC in the emergency department setting for patients transported to the hospital after resuscitation from OHCA.

The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.

Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy.
