J M Asencio-Gutiérrez, I Reguera-Burgos
BACKGROUND: The latest recommendations from the American Heart Association and the European Resuscitation Council invite allowance for the presence of relatives (PR) during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) as an extra measure of family care. OBJECTIVE: To discover the opinion of health professionals on the PR during CPR. METHOD: Cross-sectional observational study through an online survey in Spain, based on a non-probability sample (n=315)...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to investigate reliability and accuracy of the information on YouTube videos related to CPR and BLS in accord with 2010 CPR guidelines. METHODS: YouTube was queried using four search terms 'CPR', 'cardiopulmonary resuscitation', 'BLS' and 'basic life support' between 2011 and 2013. Sources that uploaded the videos, the record time, the number of viewers in the study period, inclusion of human or manikins were recorded. The videos were rated if they displayed the correct order of resuscitative efforts in full accord with 2010 CPR guidelines or not...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the short- and long-term outcome of infants<or=1250 grams who have received delivery room cardiopulmonary resuscitation (DR-CPR). METHODS: In a cohort of infants<or=1250 grams born between 01/2000 and 12/2003, we compared the rates of death, severe intraventricular hemorrhage (S-IVH), periventricular leukomalacia and combined poor short-term outcome (CO). At 18 months post- conception age (PCA) we compared DR-CPR and non-DR-CPR groups on the Bayley II Mental and Psychomotor Developmental Indices (MDI and PDI)...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The aims of the present study were to analyze the prognosis after resuscitation from out-of-hospital sudden cardiac death in patients admitted to the coronary care unit, and to identify the predictor variables of morbi-mortality. PATIENTS AND METHOD: From November 1999 to January 2004 we analyzed 63 patients (47 males) aged 61 +/- 12 years who were admitted to the coronary care unit following successful resuscitation from sudden cardiac death...

Amiodarone is recommended by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation and has been adapted by the Resuscitation Council (UK) and the Advanced Life Support Group for use in paediatric advanced life support and advanced paediatric life support for the treatment of refractory supraventricular tachycardia. The International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation has stated that resuscitation guidelines should be evidence based. We present a case report of a cardiovascularly stable infant with supraventricular tachycardia who had a variety of arrthymias requiring cardiopulmonary resucitation for a prolonged period of time after loading with intravenous amiodarone...

We report a case of fatal anaphylactoid shock caused by a CT examination using nonionic contrast medium. A 79-year-old female patient was diagnosed with right recurrent nerve plasy. There was no known history of drug allergy or exposure to contrast medium. Approximately 50 seconds after contrast medium bolus injection began, the patient was noted to be apneic. Despite cardiopulmonary resucitation, the patient died. An autopsy demonstrated marked laryngeal edema and showed extensive mast cell infiltration.

The present clinical study was designed to investigate the effectiveness of epinephrine when administered endobronchially (e. b.) in patients undergoing out-of-hospital cardiopulmonary resucitation (CPR). Plasma catecholamine measurements during and following CPR in 30 patients revealed plasma levels of epinephrine and norepinephrine with tremendous variations and elevated, sometimes, for nearly 1,000 fold when compared to normal resting levels. In patients with ventricular fibrillation (VF) native epinephrine concentrations (23...

Authors present 7 cases of spontaneous congenital chylothorax, all of them diagnosed antepartum echographycally. Six of them needed cardiopulmonary resucitation but none presented fetal anoxia. Three cases had associated malformations. Treatment included thoracocenthesis, pleural drainage, assisted ventilation and appropriate nutrition. Pleural effusion lasted from 14 days to 6 months. Complications were: pneumothorax, metabolic acidosis and bacterial infections. Three patients died by respiratory failure. Pulmonary hypoplasia was present in two of them, and suspected in the third one...

A 25-year-old woman with cerebral palsy of spastic quadriplegia and athetosis showed typical cardiac arrest encephalopathy on neuropathology. The etiology of cerebral palsy was perinatal origin including prematurity, asphyxia and hyperbilirubinemia. Ventricular premature beats had developed since about 20 years of age. Muscle tone also increased with aging and symptoms of vago-vagal reflex were occasionally observed after eating. At 25 years, cardiac arrest occurred and cardiopulmonary resucitation was done immediately...
