AIMS: Patients in a coma after cardiac arrest may have adversely affected drug absorption and metabolism. This study, the first of its kind, aimed to investigate the early pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic effects of ticagrelor administered through a nasogastric tube (NGT) to patients resuscitated after an out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) and undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI). METHODS AND RESULTS: Blood samples were drawn at baseline and at two, four, six, eight, 12, and 24 hours and then daily for up to five days after administration of a 180 mg ticagrelor loading dose (LD), followed by 90 mg twice daily in 44 patients...

AIM: Early invasive strategy, including percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), may improve survival in out-of-hospital-cardiac-arrest (OHCA) due to coronary artery disease but selection of suitable patients is challenging. Differences and results across gender remain unknown. We aimed to assess the relationship between gender and the use of an early invasive strategy after OHCA, and the relationship with outcome according to gender. METHODS: All patients admitted after OHCA were prospectively included (2000-2013)...

Survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) have high mortality and morbidity. An acute coronary event is the most common cause of sudden cardiac death. For this reason, coronary angiography is an important diagnostic and treatment strategy for patients with postcardiac arrest. This study aimed to identify the correlation between postreturn of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) on an electrocardiogram (ECG) and results of coronary angiography of OHCA survivors.We collected data from our OHCA registry from January 2010 to November 2014...

BACKGROUND: Even if a large majority of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) survivors appear to have a good neurological recovery with no important sequellae, whether health-related quality of life (HRQOL) is altered is less explored. PATIENTS AND METHODS: HRQOL was evaluated by telephone interview using SF-36 questionnaire. Each OHCA case was age and gender-matched with 4 controls from the French general population. Association between current condition of the survivors with the 8 dimensions of the SF-36 questionnaire was investigated using MANCOVA...

: Most survival outcomes in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) are provided by emergency medical services (EMS) without a doctor on board. Our objective was to determine such outcomes in a whole country with public physician-led EMS. METHODS: We analyzed data from a nationwide prospective registry of OHCA cases attended by emergency medical teams (EMS) of 19 Public EMS in Spain, covering the period from 1 October, 2013 to 30-October, 2014 (13 months). RESULTS: Advanced life support (ALS) was initiated in 9347 cases (incidence of 18...

BACKGROUND: Wide variation exists in inter-hospital survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). Regionalisation of care into cardiac arrest centres (CAC) may improve this. We report a pilot randomised trial of expedited transfer to a CAC following OHCA without ST-elevation. The objective was to assess the feasibility of performing a large-scale randomised controlled trial. METHODS: Adult witnessed ventricular fibrillation OHCA of presumed cardiac cause were randomised 1:1 to either: (1) treatment: comprising expedited transfer to a CAC for goal-directed therapy including access to immediate reperfusion, or (2) control: comprising current standard of care involving delivery to the geographically closest hospital...

AIM: Early prediction of prognosis after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) remains difficult. High blood lactate or low pH levels may be associated with poor prognosis in OHCA patients, but these associations remain controversial. We compared blood lactate and pH levels in OHCA patients transferred to our hospital to measure their prognostic performance. METHODS: We investigated the associations between blood lactate and pH levels on admission and neurological outcomes in 372 OHCA patients who had a return of spontaneous circulation...

Children and young adults tend to have reduced mortality and disability after acquired brain injuries such as trauma or stroke and across other disease processes seen in critical care medicine. However, after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), outcomes are remarkably similar across age groups. The consistent lack of witnessed arrests and a high incidence of asphyxial or respiratory etiology arrests among pediatric and young adult patients with OHCA account for a substantial portion of the difference in outcomes...

PURPOSE: Patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) more likely survive when emergency medical services (EMS) arrive quickly. We studied time response elements in OHCA with attention to EMS intervals before wheels roll and after wheels stop to understand their contribution to total time response and clinical outcome. METHODS: We analyzed EMS responses to OHCA from 2009-2014 in an urban, fire department based system. The Call-to-Care Interval, from call receipt to hands-on EMS care, was comprised of four time intervals: 1) call received to EMS notification (Activation), 2) EMS notification to vehicle wheels rolling (Turnout), 3) wheels rolling to arrival at scene (Travel), and 4) arrival at scene to hands-on EMS care (Curb-to-Care)...

BACKGROUND: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation-induced consciousness (CPRIC) is a phenomenon that has been described in only a handful of case reports. In this study, we aimed to describe CPRIC in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients and determine its association with survival outcomes. METHODS: Retrospective study of registry-based data from Victoria, Australia between January 2008 and December 2014. Adult OHCA patients treated by emergency medical services (EMS) were included...

In this review, the author summarizes the incidence, causes, and survival associated with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) and in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA). The resuscitation guideline process is outlined, and the impact of resuscitation interventions is discussed. The incidence of OHCA treated by emergency medical services varies throughout the world, but is in the range of 30 to 50 per 100,000 of the population. Survival-to-hospital-discharge rates also vary, but are in the range of 8 to 10% for many countries...

BACKGROUND: The medical dispatcher plays an essential role as part of the first link in the Chain of Survival, by recognising the out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) during the emergency call, dispatching the appropriate first responder or emergency medical services response, performing dispatcher assisted cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and referring to the nearest automated external defibrillator. The objective of this systematic review was to evaluate and compare studies reporting recognition of OHCA patients during emergency calls...

BACKGROUND: Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), confirmed absence of cardiac mechanical activity, is the leading cause of heart-related death in the US. Almost 85% of SCA occur out-of-hospital (OHCA), with very poor rates of return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) and survival to hospital discharge. We sought to determine if diabetes status was associated with survival or ROSC following an OHCA. METHODS: We completed a retrospective cohort study using data from the Toronto Regional RescuNet Epistry dataset, based upon data definitions defined by the Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium (ROC) Epistry-Cardiac Arrest and the Strategies for Post Arrest Resuscitation Care (SPARC) network datasets...

BACKGROUND: Although several studies have reported the impacts of extremely high temperature on cardiovascular diseases, few studies have investigated the spatiotemporal variation in the incidence of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) due to extremely high temperature in Japan. METHODS: Daily OHCA data from 2005 to 2014 were acquired from all 47 prefectures of Japan. We used time-series Poisson regression analysis combined with a distributed lag non-linear model to assess the temporal variability in the effects of extremely high temperature on OHCA incidence in each prefecture, adjusted for time trends...
