Optimal approach to mechanical ventilation after cardiac arrest

2017 05 Dec

Return of spontaneous circulation after cardiac arrest results in a systemic inflammatory state called the post-cardiac arrest syndrome (PCAS), characterised by oxidative stress, coagulopathy, neuronal injury, and organ dysfunction. Further, patients who suffer cardiac arrest are at high risk for pulmonary infection. Meticulous attention to mechanical... Read more

Cerebral Oxyhaemoglobin: a Useful Indicator of Neuroprotection

2014 31 Aug

A prospective, multi-centre, cohort study was conducted to test whether regional cerebral oxygen saturation (rSO2) predicts neurological outcomes after out-of-hospitals cardiac arrest (OHCA). The primary goal of the study was to learn more about oxyhaemoglobin (oxy-Hb) levels in the cerebral tissues during the development of anoxic and ischaemic brain... Read more
