PURPOSE: Although guidelines on post-resuscitation care recommend the use of short-acting agents for sedation during targeted temperature management (TTM) after cardiac arrest (CA), the potential advantages of this strategy have not been clinically demonstrated. METHODS: We compared two sedation regimens (propofol-remifentanil, period P2, vs midazolam-fentanyl, period P1) among comatose TTM-treated CA survivors. Management protocol, apart from sedation and neuromuscular blockers use, did not change between the two periods...

BACKGROUND: The highest achievable survival rate following out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is unknown. Data from airports serving international destinations (international airports) provide the opportunity to evaluate the success of pre-hospital resuscitation in a relatively controlled but real-life environment. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study included all cases of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest at international airports with resuscitation attempted between January 1st, 2013 and December 31st, 2015...

AIM: The aim of our study was to assess the impact of coronary angiography (CAG) after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) without ST-elevation (STE). METHODS: Prospective observational study of adult (age ≥ 18) OHCA of presumed cardiac etiology from 1/01/2010-12/31/2014 admitted to one of 40 recognized cardiac receiving centers within a statewide resuscitation network. RESULTS: Among 11,976 cases, 1,881 remained for analysis after exclusions...

AIM: Emergency medicine (EM) trainees often work nightshifts. We sought to measure how this circadian disruption affects EM resident performance during simulated resuscitations. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study enrolled EM residents at a single Canadian academic centre over a six-year period. Residents completed twice-annual simulation-based resuscitation-focused objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs) with assessment in four domains (primary assessment, diagnostic actions, therapeutic actions and communication), and a global assessment score (GAS)...

STUDY A: im Recent investigations have suggested that CPR training rates are low within the U.S and barriers to CPR training are poorly understood. Social media holds great potential for large scale capture of the public's CPR training experiences and may illuminate barriers to CPR training. While studies have examined Twitter data for behaviors associated with cardiovascular health, no investigation has evaluated Twitter data to understand public perception of CPR training. We characterized Tweet content about CPR training and associated sentiment to better understand barriers associated with CPR training...

INTRODUCTION: Loss of pupillary light reactivity (PLR) three days after a cardiorespiratory arrest is a prognostic factor. Its predictive value upon hospital admission remains unclear. Our objective was to determine the prognostic value of the absence of PLR upon hospital admission in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. METHODS: We prospectively included all out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occurring between July 2011 and July 2017 treated by a mobile medical team (MMT) based on data from a French cardiac arrest registry database...

AIM: Early basic life support is crucial to enhance survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest but rates remain low, especially in households. High-risk groups' training has been advocated, but the optimal method is unclear. The CArdiac REhabilitation and BAsic life Support (CAREBAS) project aims to compare the effectiveness of two basic life support educational strategies implemented in a cardiac rehabilitation program. METHODS: A community intervention study including consecutive patients enrolled on an exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation program after acute coronary syndrome or revascularization was conducted...

INTRODUCTION: Understanding the prognosis of elderly out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients is vital to informing resuscitation and advanced care planning decisions. However, short-term outcomes such as survival to hospital discharge do not account for post-arrest quality of life. We describe the 12-month functional recovery and health-related quality of life (HR-QOL) of elderly OHCA survivors, including those arresting in aged care facilities. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of Victorian Ambulance Cardiac Arrest Registry data for all OHCA survivors to hospital discharge aged ≥65 years between 1 January 2010 and 30 June 2016...

BACKGROUND: The Train the Trainer (TTT) model is increasingly used in limited resource settings as a mechanism to disseminate resuscitation knowledge and skills among providers. Anecdotally, however, many resuscitation programs that use this model fail to achieve sustainability. OBJECTIVE: We aim to systematically review the literature to describe the evidence for the TTT method of knowledge dissemination for resuscitation courses in limited resource settings. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review of the literature in accordance with PRISMA guidelines of the PubMed, Cochrane Library, MEDLARS online (MEDLINE), and Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL) databases...

INTRODUCTION: Standardized EEG patterns according to the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ACNS) ("highly malignant", "malignant" and "benign") demonstrated good correlation with outcome after cardiac arrest (CA). However, this approach relates to EEGs after target temperature management (TTM), and correlation to other recognized outcome predictors remains unknown. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the relationship between categorized EEG and other outcome predictors, during and after TTM, at different temperatures...

AIM: To quantify the physiologic effects of pre-arrest bolus dilute epinephrine in the pediatric intensive care unit. METHODS: Patients <18 years old and ≥37 weeks gestation who received an intravenous bolus of dilute epinephrine (10 mcg/mL) in the pediatric intensive care units at our institution from January 2011 to March 2017 were retrospectively identified. Patients were excluded if doses exceeded 20 mcg/kg, or under the following circumstances: orders limiting resuscitation, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, active chest compressions, simultaneous administration of other blood pressure-altering interventions or documented normotension prior to epinephrine...

AIM: Study the incidence and reasons behind in-hospital cardiac arrests (IHCAs) after rapid response team (RRT) reviews. METHODS: We conducted a matched case-control study at Tampere University Hospital, Finland. Data on adult patients who were triaged to remain on general ward after first (index) RRT review without treatment limitations but who suffered an IHCA within the following 48 hours were prospectively collected for 5.3 years. These cases were matched (age +/- 3 years, sex, surgical/medical ward, admission year) at a 1:4 ratio to controls (no ICHA after RRT review)...

AIM OF THE STUDY: To investigate whether pure self-learning without instructor support, resulted in the same BLS-competencies as facilitator-led learning, when using the same commercially available video BLS teaching kit. METHODS: First-year medical students were randomised to either BLS self-learning without supervision or facilitator-led BLS-teaching. Both groups used the MiniAnne kit (Laerdal Medical, Stavanger, Norway) in the students' local language. Directly after the teaching and three months later, all participants were tested on their BLS-competencies in a simulated scenario, using the Resusci Anne SkillReporter™ (Laerdal Medical, Stavanger, Norway)...

AIMS: To compare survival outcomes of Impella support and medical treatment in patients with post-cardiac arrest cardiogenic shock related to acute myocardial infarction (AMI). METHODS: Retrospective single center study of patients resuscitated from out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) due to AMI with post-cardiac arrest cardiogenic shock between September 2014 and September 2016. Patients were either assisted with Impella or received medical treatment only. Survival outcomes were compared using propensity score-matched analysis to account for differences in baseline characteristics between both groups...

BACKGROUND: The survival rate of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) remains extremely low, generally under 10%. Post-resuscitation care, and particularly early coronary reperfusion, may improve this outcome. The main objective of the present study was to determine whether patients with immediate coronary angiography at hospital admission (CAA) had a better outcome than patients without immediate CAA. METHODS: This cohort analysis study was based on data extracted from the French National Cardiac Arrest registry (RéAC)...
