Pre-hospital ECPR: challenges and benefits

2018 10 Apr

Survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) has remained low despite advances in resuscitation science. Hospital-based extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) is a novel use of an established technology that provides greater blood flow and oxygen delivery during cardiac arrest than closed chest compressions. Pre-hospital delivery... Read more

In-hospital cardiac arrest and extracorporeal CPR

2017 17 Oct

A new analysis has identified the predictors of survival to discharge in adults resuscitated with extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) following in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA). The study findings show that, in adult IHCA treated with ECPR, a shockable initial rhythm, a lower low-flow time, lower blood lactate levels before ECPR start... Read more

Extracorporeal Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation: Who Could Benefit?

2017 28 May

This article summarises the current ratio and scientific evidence on which cardiac arrest patients could benefit from extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation.   Acute cardiac arrest has a dismal prognosis even when advanced cardiac life support is initiated without delay. Extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (eCPR) refers to a... Read more
