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)...

One of the ways to develop health simulations is through the use of computers. This paper presents the use of Intelligent Computer-aided Instruction (ICAI) for the development of an interactive simulator for learning Cardio Pulmonary Resucitation (CPR) which incorporates online tutorials, training and evaluation.

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...

A variety of point-of-care monitors for the measurement of hematocrit, hemoglobin, blood gas with electrolytes, and lactate can be used also in the prehospital setting for optimizing and individualizing trauma resuscitation. Point-of-care coagulation testing with activated prothrombin test, prothrombin test, and activated coagulation/clotting time tests is available for prehospital use. Although robust, battery driven, and easy to handle, many devices lack documentation for use in prehospital care. Some of the devices correspond poorly to corresponding laboratory analyses in acute trauma coagulopathy and at lower hematocrits...

BACKGROUND: Recent interferon gamma (IFN-γ)-based studies have identified novel Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M.tb) infection phase-dependent antigens as diagnostic candidates. In this study, the levels of 11 host markers other than IFN-γ, were evaluated in whole blood culture supernatants after stimulation with M.tb infection phase-dependent antigens, for the diagnosis of TB disease. METHODOLOGY AND PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Five M.tb infection phase-dependent antigens, comprising of three DosR-regulon-encoded proteins (Rv2032, Rv0081, Rv1737c), and two resucitation promoting factors (Rv0867c and Rv2389c), were evaluated in a case-control study with 15 pulmonary TB patients and 15 household contacts that were recruited from a high TB incidence setting in Cape Town, South Africa...

The current guidelines for resucitation following hypothermia and submersion with cardiac arrest state that rewarming should be continued until a core temperature of 32-34°C is achieved, after which death can be declared if no return of spontaneous circulation has occurred. As no randomized, controlled trials exist, these treatment guidelines are mostly based on a pragmatic approach. Wheater to start or stop resuscitation is notoriusly difficult. Submersion time, water temperature, and prompt resuscitation seem to be crucial factors for outcome...

A case report of a primigravida, who was admitted with severe pregnancy induced hypertension (BP 160/122 mmHg) and twin pregnancy, is presented here. Antihypertensive therapy was initiated. Elective LSCS under general anaesthesia was planned. After the birth of both the babies, intramyometrial injections of Carboprost and Pitocin were administered. Immediately, she suffered cardiac arrest. Cardio pulmonary resucitation (CPR) was started and within 3 minutes, she was successfully resuscitated. The patient initially showed peculiar psychological changes and with passage of time, certain psycho-behavioural patterns emerged which could be attributed to near death experiences, as described in this case report...

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.

We report a case of cardiac arrest associated with cisapride in combination with itraconazole and provide a brief review of pertinent literature. Cisapride (Propulsid; Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Titusville, NJ), a gastrointestinal prokinetic drug, has recently been reported to prolong the QT interval. Itraconazole, an oral antifungal agent, is an inhibitor of cytochrome P450 (CYP3A4) metabolism and may elevate serum drug levels of compounds metabolized by this pathway. A 31-year-old woman had a witnessed cardiac arrest while taking the combination of cisapride and itraconazole...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of oxygen free radical on the enhancement of IL-1 activity in vivo and in vitro on hemorrhagic and resuscitated rat. METHODS: 30% of rats total blood volume was withdraw by carotid artery catheter and resuscitated with 2 times of lost blood volume 1 h later. RESULTS: Plasm IL-1 activity and MDA content increased and SOD activity decreased significantly 1-4 hours after resuscitation. There was a marked correlation between IL-1 activity and MDA content as well as SOD activity...
