Sudden death is a major problem in industrially developed countries. Despite a decline in ischemic heart disease mortality and the progress has been made in resuscitation, treatment of sudden death victims is frequently unsuccessful. the ideal solution would be to prevent the disease process that causes the initial episode of cardiac arrest. Parental sudden death is an independent risk factor for sudden death. So, detect a gene predisposing to sudden death may help provide better identification of subjects at high risk of cardiac arrest. This research is a genetic study of sudden cardiac death, recruited 2000 subjects in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

This study will evaluated the epidemiology and the outcomes of patients suffering out-of-hospital cardiac arrest with presumed cardiac etiology in Korea.
Out of hospital cardiac arrest is associated with a poor prognosis. The aim of this study is to provide a better understanding of perturbations of iron metabolism after cardiac arrest and ...
The primary aim of this study is to investigate the feasibility and complications of inserting a REBOA-catheter to patients suffering from non-traumatic out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, by ...
Early-onset pneumonia after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is frequent. An association between early-onset pneumonia and an increase in morbidity has been reported in this population. The ...
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...
Most interventional and observational studies include cardiac arrest from cardiac origin. However, an increasing proportion of cardiac arrest results from an extra-cardiac origin, mainly respiratory. ...
Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is a global public health issue. There is wide variation in both regional and inter-hospital survival rates from OHCA and overall survival remains poor at 7%. Reg...
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Recent findings suggest that AF is also associated with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. However, whether that association...
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).
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.
A potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia that is characterized by uncoordinated extremely rapid firing of electrical impulses (400-600/min) in HEART VENTRICLES. Such asynchronous ventricular quivering or fibrillation prevents any effective cardiac output and results in unconsciousness (SYNCOPE). It is one of the major electrocardiographic patterns seen with CARDIAC ARREST.
The hospital department responsible for the administration and provision of diagnostic and therapeutic services for the cardiac patient.
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
