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 bett...
The project will evaluate a standardized testing protocol in detecting the cause of cardiac arrest and familial sudden death in patients with apparently unexplained cardiac arrest. The testing is directed at the detection of rare genetic conditions that result in palpitations, blackouts and sudden death in patients and their family members. Genetic testing will be performed to validate the clinical findings.
This study will evaluated the epidemiology and the outcome of patients suffering out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in 27 european nations. The special focus in the EuReCa TWO study is on bystander CPR.
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a sudden, unexpected loss of heart function. It is a leading cause of death, and more than 400,000 people in the United States die each year as a result of SCA. This study will analyze genetic samples of people who have experienced SCA and people who have not experienced SCA to determine if there is a genetic basis for SCA.
In this study, we want to find out whether the recognition of cardiac arrest using a smart watch is feasible or not. If this idea is possible, the recognition of cardiac arrest using the smart watch is easy and fast to the witness, like a general person. By using the smart watch, the emergency response system for cardiac arrest and the bystander CPR or BLS is beginning earlier than using conventional cardiac arrest recognition method in field.
Cardiac arrest is a sudden, unexpected loss of heart function. Therapeutic hypothermia, in which the body's temperature is lowered and maintained several degrees below normal for a period of time, has been used to successfully treat adults who have experienced cardiac arrest. This study will evaluate the effectiveness of therapeutic hypothermia at increasing survival rates and reducing the risk of brain injury in infants and children who experience a cardiac arrest while out of...
Recently, early defibrillation and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for sudden onset of cardiac arrest are advancing, however, survival rate is still very low in the world. Furthermore, post-cardiac arrest brain injury is a common cause of morbidity and mortality after successful resuscitation which is urgent issue to be solved. Therapeutic hypothermia is part of a standardized treatment strategy for comatose survivors of cardiac arrest in the metabolic phase usually about 1...
Sudden cardiac death (SCD) remains a major cause of mortality within developed nations despite aggressive efforts to reduce its societal burden. Despite extensive clinical and genetic investigations, a subgroup of cardiac arrests remain unexplained, highlighting the potential contribution of additional cardiac conditions that may not be identified with contemporary diagnostic algorithms. The EPS ARREST study aims to evaluate the role of invasive electrophysiology study within t...
To compare home use of an automatic external defibrillator (AED) to the use of local emergency medical system in treating survivors of sudden cardiac arrest.
The addition of an Extracorporeal-Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (ECPR) service to a region may improve the survival of young patients with sudden unexpected cardiac arrest.The primary aim of this study is to determine the benefit of the systematic integration of ECPR services into the out-of-hospital cardiac arrest management algorithm. This study is a controlled parallel group design with group allocation based on region of treatment. The investigators will compare the outcome...
Sudden cardiac death remains one of the major leading causes of death. Therapeutic hypothermia is a validated standard procedure to avoid or minimize cognitive deficits after cardiac arrest. To assess the efficiency of different cooling methods and further improve these methods, the investigators collected blood samples to measure the neuron specific enolase (NSE) in patients treated with invasive cooling as compared to patients treated with non-invasive cooling.
The objective of ESCAPE-SCD Study is assessment of the effect of sleep apnea on sudden cardiac death risk and cardiovascular outcomes in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy. The ESCAPE - SCD Study will address following specific study questions: - Is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and/or central sleep apnea (CSA) an independent risk factor of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy (ICM) indicated for ICD/CRT-D implant based on curren...
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) remains one of the major leading causes of death. Cognitive deficits are common in survivors of SCA. Postresuscitative mild induced hypothermia (MIH) lowers mortality and reduces neurologic damage after cardiac arrest. The investigators evaluated the long term neurological outcome after mild hypothermia after restoration of spontaneous circulation.
The aim of this study is to investigate the predictive value of the presence or absence of cardiac activity by bedside ultrasound during cardiac arrest. The investigators anticipate based on previous research that patients who suffer a cardiac arrest and have cardiac activity on bedside ultrasound will have a greater chance of surviving to hospital admission. The investigators hypothesis is that the mortality rate in patients in cardiac arrest with no cardiac activity by ultra...
Unexpected cardiac arrest involves approximately 0.5 to 5% of patients admitted in Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Even if they have a technical environment conducive to prompt diagnosis and prompt treatment, patients hospitalized in ICU suffer from chronic illnesses and organ failure(s) that obscure the prognosis of cardiac arrest. Although extra cardiac arrhythmias or intra-hospital arrests are the subject of numerous publications, few studies specifically focus on unexpected card...
This study will evaluated the epidemiology and the outcomes of patients suffering out-of-hospital cardiac arrest with presumed cardiac etiology in Korea.
Observational study of all out-of-hospital cardiac arrest during 6 months in regional areas of Helsinki University Hospital and Kuopio University Hospital from activation of EMS system until follow up to 6 months of survival.Simultaneous observation of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest primary survivors admitted to all Finnish ICUs.
XePOHCAS: Prospective, randomized, multicenter interventional trial in adult subjects with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest comparing treatment with standard-of-care post-cardiac arrest intensive care (which is targeted temperature management [TTM]) to xenon by inhalation plus standard-of-care post-cardiac arrest intensive care (including TTM).
The investigators will examine whether an educational video increases patient knowledge about heart failure and the risk of sudden cardiac arrest and leads to greater satisfaction with information provided as compared to usual care. Additionally, the investigators will look at whether racial concordance (physician and patient being of the same race) improves satisfaction with the patient's treatment decision and disease knowledge. Our hypothesis is that a video in which parti...
Cardiac arrest is a major health problem reaching 375000 cases in Europe each year. Only 5 to 31 % survive after an out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). The main complication after OHCA is the anoxic encephalopathy. Recently mild hypothermia has shown a beneficial effect on survival. But the mechanisms underlying these therapy are not clear. Cardiac arrest is an example of ischemia reperfusion of the entire body. And it is well demonstrated that reperfusion generates an oxid...
The aim of the study is to identify prognostication predictors of 6-months neurological outcome in survivors at day 3 after cardiac arrest (CA) treated with therapeutic hypothermia (TH).
This study seeks to evaluate, whether patients suffering from cardiac arrest, that can be successfully resuscitated, can be differentiated from those, that cannot be resuscitated, using arterial blood pressure values.
In the U.S. alone, over 300,000 people per year have sudden out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), and less than 1 out of 10 survive. The current standard practice for treating OHCA is to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) at the scene until either the heart is restarted or resuscitation efforts are considered hopeless and discontinued. An alternative strategy for those with refractory OHCA is expedited transport with ong...
The overall goal of this study is to better understand the factors leading to successful dispatch-assisted CPR instructions and to ultimately save the lives of more cardiac arrest patients. Specific objectives are to: 1) Determine the ability of 9-1-1 dispatchers to make the diagnosis of cardiac arrest over the phone; 2) Quantify the frequency and impact of perceived agonal breathing on cardiac arrest diagnosis; 3) Measure the frequency with which dispatch-assisted CPR instruct...
This study aims to examine whether P30 wave of somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) is related with outcome after cardiac arrest. The study design is a prospective, multicenter-observational study. Patients survived after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest undergoing hypothermic-targeted temperature management will participate in the study. Relationship of P30 wave of SEP with the neurologic outcome on hospital discharge will be evaluated.
