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

Many regions in the world have seen mortality rates level off or improve; this is not the case for Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). With only modest reductions in age-adjusted cardiovascular mortality, overshadowed by a blossoming... Read more

2017 28 May

Everyone who is active in resuscitation teams will admit: treating a patient in cardiac arrest is a challenge and often things will not go as you would like them to. This can lead to negative feelings when the resuscitation attempt has ended, either because the patient did not regain return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) or the patient is transported...

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)....

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... Read more
