Objective: evaluate the effectiveness of epinephrine used during cardiac arrest and its effect on the survival rates and neurological condition. Method: systematic review of scientific literature with meta-analysis, using a random effects model. The following databases were used to research clinical trials and observational studies: Medline, Embase and Cochrane, from 2005 to 2015. Results: when the Return of Spontaneous Circulation (ROSC) with administration of epinephrine was compared with ROSC without administration, increased rates were found with administration (OR 2...

INTRODUCTION: Little is known about the prevalence of electrical storm, baseline characteristics and mortality implications of patients with implantable cardioverter defibrillator in primary prevention versus those patients without electrical storm. We sought to assess the prevalence, baseline risk profile and survival significance of electrical storm in patients with implantable defibrillator for primary prevention. METHODS: Retrospective multicenter study performed in 15 Spanish hospitals...

Experience on the treatment of 85 ventricular fibrillation in 20 children by transthoracic electric shock with continuous electrical current is studied. Initially an energy level of 2 W./sec./Kg., was used and obtained 95% of effectivity. 50% of patients were dead because they did not recover effective cardiac rhythm, in spite of the effectivity of desfibrillation. Authors evaluate the importance of correction of metabolic disturbances and hipoxemia as predisposing factors of ventricular fibrillation and success of treatment...
