Extracorporeal Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation in OHCA

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...

Best airway and ventilation strategy during CPR and after resuscitation

2018 22 Aug

After cardiac arrest a combination of basic and advanced airway and ventilation techniques are used during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and after a return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). Current guidelines are based predominantly on evidence from observational studies and expert consensus; thus, the optimal combination of airway techniques... Read more

Cardiac arrest is one of the major causes of death worldwide. It occurs either in hospital and out of hospital situations with a common variable in the decision making process: time. Each year, according to the AHA (American Heart Association) statistical report , more than 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests per year occur in the United States... Read more

LUCAS-2 in Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest: Cost Analysis

2017 17 Jul

The use of the mechanical chest compression device LUCAS-2 represents poor value for money when compared to standard manual chest compression in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, according to a new study published in the journal Resuscitation. A critical step of the resuscitation process is early cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) – i.e., the combination... Read more

Cardiac Arrest: Bystander CPR's Impact on Survival, Cost

2017 16 May

Bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is crucial to successful resuscitation following out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). Now new research shows that bystander CPR was positively associated with long-term survival and appears cost-effective with an incremental cost-effectiveness ratio of USD48,044 per quality-adjusted life year (QALY)....
