OBJECTIVE: To assess the frequency of the multiple organ failure and the prognostic value of multiple organ failure scores in children who have recovered from an in-hospital cardiac arrest. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A single centre, observational, and retrospective study was conducted on children between 1 month and 16 years old who suffered an in-hospital cardiac arrest and achieved return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). In the first 24-48hours and between the fifth and the seventh day after ROSC, a record was made of the scores on paediatric severity (PRISM and PIM II) and multiple organ failure scales (PELOD and P-MODS), along with the clinical and analytical data, and including monitoring and treatment, mortality and cause of death...

Dispatch-assisted bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest has been shown as an effective measure to improve the survival of this process. The development of a unified protocol for all dispatch centers of the different emergency medical services can be a first step towards this goal in our environment. The process of developing a recommendations document and the realization of posters of dispatch-assisted cardiopulmonary resuscitation, agreed by different actors and promoted by the Spanish Resuscitation Council, is presented...

BACKGROUND: Bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a vital link in the chain of survival for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA); however, there are racial/ethnic disparities in the provision of bystander CPR. Approximately 32% of Hispanics perform CPR when confronted with cardiac arrest, whereas approximately 41% of non-Hispanics perform CPR. Public education, via the Internet, may be critical in improving the performance of bystander CPR among Hispanics. The objective of this study was to evaluate the availability and quality of CPR-related literature for primary Spanish-speaking individuals on the Internet...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the results of isolated on-pump coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) in patients > 65 years-old. METHODS: Patients undergoing isolated on-pump CABG from December 1st 2010 to July 31th 2012 were divided in two groups: GE (elderly > 65 years-old, n=103) and GA (adults < 65 years-old, n=150). Preoperative data, intraoperative (as cardiopulmonar bypass time, aortic clamping time, time length of stay in mechanical ventilation--MV--and number of grafts), and postoperative variable (as morbidity, mortality and time length of stay in hospital) were analyzed during hospitalization...

Cardiopulmonar complications in chronic liver diseases were described 100 years ago. Altough both hepatopulmonary sindrome and portopulmonary hypertension originates from liver damage, clinical findings and diagnosis are very different. These complications are important due to the highly deleterous impact on disease evolution and prognosis. Currently, there is not an ideal treatment for these diseases and liver transplantation should be adequately evaluated. In this review we analyze the most important issues on hepatopulmonary sindrome and portopulmonary hypertension...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the factors that influence in the erosion to acetabular in patients with later hemiprosthesis to a fracture of hip with a survival greater to 1 year. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We made retrospective, comparative, descriptive and observational study, in patients who were used hemiarthroplasty for fracture of hip between January of 1997 and January of 2003. We obtained two groups of patients, those that had not undergone erosion and those that had erosion greater to 3 mm looked for similar characteristics, like age, pre passable cane or physical activity, overweight, sex, concomitances disease, degree of osteoporosis, function to cardiopulmonar, survival, size of prosthesis...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the feasibility and accuracy of the sequential segmental analysis (SSA) to diagnose congenital heart diseases. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 100 cardiopulmonar specimens were analyzed according with the sequential segmental analysis. The atrial situs, atrioventricular (AVC) and ventriculoarterial connections (VAC) were defined, finally associated lesions were observed. RESULTS: From 100 specimens, 91 had situs solitus (SS), 6 inversus (SI) and 3 isomerism (2 right isomerism and 1 left isomerism)...

Renal cell carcinoma with inferior vena cava thrombus is relatively uncommon and complicates radical nefrectomy. During the past twenty years our hospital have substantially contributed to the surgical stratification of renal cell carcinoma with extension into inferior vena cava through different techniques. The reason for this article is to discuss the mote efficient and appropiate surgical technique for this pathology. We believe that the diagnosis of vena caval invasion and level of tumoral extension is based on radiological examinations and it is crucial for the success of the surgery...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The PROCES (Programa de Reanimació Cardiopulmonar Orientat a Centres d'Ensenyament Secundari) program is aimed at teaching basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (b-CPR) to teenagers within high school. Our aim was to analyze the results obtained from the pilot program. SUBJECTS AND METHOD: PROCES was splitted in 7 sessions: 5 of them (5 hours) were taught by teachers at high school and 2 of them (4 hours, including how to perform b-CPR) were taught by emergency physicians...

Cardiorespiratory arrest in children with severe disease does not usually present suddenly or unexpectedly but is often the result of a progressive deterioration of respiratory and/or circulatory function. Before failure of these functions occurs, there is a series of clinical signs that serve as a warning. Health professionals should not only evaluate clinical signs of respiratory and/or circulatory insufficiency but should also be able to identify these warning signs as early as possible, preferably in the compensation phase, given that the possibility that this process can be reversed by therapeutic measures decreases as the process progresses...

The recommendations for neonatal resuscitation are not always based on sufficient scientific evidence and thus expert consensus based on current research, knowledge, and experience are useful for formulating practical protocols that are easy to follow. The latest recommendations, in 2000, modified previously published recommendations and are included in the present text.

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: The effect of obesity on cardiac function is still under discussion. The objective of this study was to assess cardiopulmonary capacity in morbidly obese patients. Patients and method. A symptom-limited cardiopulmonary exercise stress test was carried out in 31 morbidly obese patients (BMI 50 9 kg/m2) and 30 normal controls (BMI 24 2 kg/m2. Cardiovascular function was evaluated using the oxygen pulse (oxygen uptake/heart rate). RESULTS: There were no differences in age, sex and height between both groups...

Children who require cardiopulmonary resuscitation present high mortality and morbidity. The few studies that have been published on this subject use different terminology and methodology in data collection, which makes comparisons, evaluation of efficacy, and the performance of meta-analyses, etc. difficult. Consequently, standardized data collection both in clinical studies on cardiorespiratory arrest and in cardiopulmonary resuscitation in the pediatric age group are required. The Spanish Group of Pediatric Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation emphasizes that recommendations must be simple and easy to understand...

OBJECTIVE: Evaluation of a hospital-wide resuscitation program at one year. METHODS: All records of cardiac arrest calls were collected, logged in a database by the same operator, and analyzed. The cardiac arrest teams consist of a physician and a nurse with ALS (Advanced Life Support) training. Each team has a radio that is activated by a single emergency number. Only cardiac arrest calls were analyzed. RESULTS: Between March 1999 and March 2000 there were 173 emergency team calls...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Atheromatous coronary disease (ACD) is the most frequent cause of sudden death (SD) in adults. Few studies have focused in SD due to ACD in those patients under 35 years old. The aim of this study is to analyze the incidence, and clinical and pathological characteristics of ACD as a cause of death in young people. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We reviewed all SD cases in people from 1-35 years old which occurred in Bizkaia and in which there was a legal-medical autopsy from 1991 to 1998...
