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). The... Read more

In-Hospital Cardiac Arrests and Resuscitation

2017 31 Jan

A multi-centre observational study was conducted to report the duration of resuscitation for patients after an in-hospital cardiac arrest as well as to examine the relationship between resuscitation and neurologically intact survival to discharge. See Also: ESA2016: Death by Resuscitation?For the purpose of the study, the authors collated data from... Read more

ESA2016: Death by Resuscitation?

2016 07 Jun

When anaesthesiologist Sharon Einav took her car to be repaired on the way to hospital one day, she wondered why the mechanic was just leaning on his car. It took a while to realise he was having a heart attack, she related at Euroanaesthesia 2016 in London in May. This lack of situational awareness was an example she used to show how the chain of survival... Read more

Dedicated Resuscitation Unit Improves Transfer Times

2016 30 May

A critical care resuscitation unit (CCRU) at the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) has significantly improved transfer times for non-trauma critically ill patients, according to a recent study (Scalea et al. 2016). In its first full year of operation, for the subset of adult patients admitted for critical care, transfers increased 64.5 percent... Read more

Chain of Survival after Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest

2016 30 May

The Final Link The "Chain of Survival" Concept After Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest To overcome a time-sensitive and severe condition with a low survival rate—out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA)—the following four links of the “chain of survival” concept were introduced by Newman in the 1980s (Newman 1989): Early access to emergency medical care; Early...
