Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Witnessing by a Relative

2014-08-27 03:18:08 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The bereavement generated by the loss of a family member can induce pathological situations: depressive state, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and complicated grief. These morbid factors can be influenced by the death circumstances and in particular by the possibility given to the family to attend the medical management of the patient. This clinical trial aims to evaluate the psychological consequences of bereavement on the relatives according to the possibility of witnessing the cardiopulmonary resuscitation of a family member. This possibility lies within the scope of a strategy of global management of the relatives.

Description

This clinical trial aims to compare the presence of post-traumatic stress disorder on a relative related to the death of a family member:

Test group: the medical team will propose to the relative to witness the cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

Control group: the medical team will not modify its usual management of care.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A strategy for purchasing health care in a manner which will obtain maximum value for the price for the purchasers of the health care and the recipients. The concept was developed primarily by Alain Enthoven of Stanford University and promulgated by the Jackson Hole Group. The strategy depends on sponsors for groups of the population to be insured. The sponsor, in some cases a health alliance, acts as an intermediary between the group and competing provider groups (accountable health plans). The competition is price-based among annual premiums for a defined, standardized benefit package. (From Slee and Slee, Health Care Reform Terms, 1993)

A class of traumatic stress disorders that is characterized by the significant dissociative states seen immediately after overwhelming trauma. By definition it cannot last longer than 1 month, if it persists, a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder (STRESS DISORDERS, POST-TRAUMATIC) is more appropriate.

Strategy for the analysis of RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIALS AS TOPIC that compares patients in the groups to which they were originally randomly assigned.

Occurrence of heart arrest in an individual when there is no immediate access to medical personnel or equipment.

Syndromes which feature DYSKINESIAS as a cardinal manifestation of the disease process. Included in this category are degenerative, hereditary, post-infectious, medication-induced, post-inflammatory, and post-traumatic conditions.
