  Survival among patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is typically quite low. Survival in OHCA is dependent on several factors, including the performance of early bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), the use of public automatic external defibrillators (AEDs), and the performance of high-quality CPR or the post-resuscitation...Read more

Findings from a new survey published in the European Heart Journal show that sudden cardiac arrest is more often fatal in people with COVID-19. These results should be a wake-up call for the public as well as care providers.  The survey covered 3026 cases of sudden cardiac arrest reported to the Swedish Registry for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation...Read more

2019 14 Nov

Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) without return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) despite conventional resuscitation is common and has poor outcomes. Adding extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) to cardiopulmonary resuscitation (extracorporeal-CPR) is increasingly used in an attempt to improve outcomes. A new study analysed a prospective...Read more
