BACKGROUND: Performing advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) in the cardiac catheterization laboratory (CCL) is challenging. Mechanical chest compression (MCC) devices deliver compressions in a small space, allowing for simultaneous percutaneous coronary intervention and reduced radiation exposure to rescuers. In refractory cases, MCC devices allow rescuers to initiate percutaneous mechanical circulatory support (MCS) and extracorporeal life support (ECLS) during resuscitation. This study sought to assess the efficacy and safety of MCC when compared to manual compressions in the CCL...

Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) is a very effective bridging therapy in patients with refractory ventricular tachycardia (VT) associated with cardiogenic shock. A moribund patient in extremis, is not amenable to optimization by standard ACC/AHA guidelines. New approaches and novel salvage techniques are necessary to improve outcomes in patients with refractory clinical settings such as malignant ventricular arrhythmias, cardiac arrest, cardiogenic shock and/or pulmonary failure until further management options are explored...

Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) is an important device in the management of children with severe refractory cardiac and or pulmonary failure. Actually, two forms of ECLS are available for neonates and children: extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and use of a ventricular assist device (VAD). Both these techniques have their own advantages and disadvantages. The intra-aortic balloon pump is another ECLS device that has been successfully used in larger children, adolescents, and adults, but has found limited applicability in smaller children...

The number of patients who are in the "Transplant Waiting List" is increasing each year. At the same time, as a result of the significant shortage of donor organs, part of the patients dies without waiting till surgery. According to the Maastricht classification for non-heart beating donors, the patients, who had cardiac arrest outside the hospital (in the uncontrolled by medical staff conditions) should be considered as a potential donors of category II. For these patients, the most effective resuscitation is recommended...

OBJECTIVES: The feasibility and outcomes of 35 consecutive patients subjected to eCPR in the tertiary cardiology center were investigated. BACKGROUND: While conventional cardiopulmonary-resuscitation (cCPR) often times achieves only mediocre outcomes extracorporeal cardiopulmonary-resuscitation (eCPR) increasingly shifts into the focus of interest. However, the scientific evidence for eCPR is sparse, particularly in the cardiological setting. METHODS: Retrospective chart analysis of 35 patients treated with eCPR between 01/2014 and 10/2015...

INTRODUCTION: During out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), chest compression interruptions or hands-off time (HOT) affect the prognosis. Our aim was to measure HOT due to the application of an automated chest compression device (ACD) by an advanced life support team. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a prospective observational case series report since the introduction of a new method of installing the ACD. Inclusion criteria were patients over 18 years old with OHCA who were treated with an ACD (Lucas 2(TM), Physio-Control)...

AIMS: Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) has shown encouraging survival rates in patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest; however, its routine use is still controversial. We compared the survival of patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest receiving conventional cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CCPR) to that of patients with ECLS as an adjunct to cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR). METHODS: A total of 353 patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest (272 CCPR and 52 ECPR) were included in this retrospective, propensity score-adjusted (1:1 matched), single-centre study...

OBJECTIVE: Extracorporeal Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (E-CPR) is the initiation of extracorporeal life support during active chest compressions. There are no studies describing detailed neurocognitive outcomes of this population. We aim to describe the survival and neurocognitive outcomes of children who received E-CPR. METHODS: Prospective cohort study. Children who received E-CPR at the Stollery Children's Hospital between 2000 and 2010 were included. Neurocognitive follow-up, including Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scales of Intelligence, was completed at the age of 4...

OBJECTIVES: Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) is an emerging option to treat selected patients with cardiac arrest refractory to cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Our primary objective was to determine the mortality at 30 days and at hospital discharge among adult patients receiving veno-arterial ECLS for refractory cardiac arrest. Our secondary objectives were to determine the 1-year survival and the health-related quality of life, and to examine factors associated with 30-day mortality...

OBJECTIVES: No guidelines for mechanical circulatory support in patients with therapy-refractory cardiogenic shock and multiorgan failure including ongoing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) exist. To achieve immediate cardiopulmonary stabilization, we established an interdisciplinary concept with on-site percutaneous extracorporeal life support (ECLS) implantation. METHODS: From February 2012 to November 2014, 96 patients were deemed eligible for ECLS implantation...

BACKGROUND: Interhospital transfer of patients experiencing circulatory failure and shock has a significant risk of cardiovascular deterioration and death. Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) is a rescue tool for hemodynamic stabilization that makes patient transportation much safer. METHODS: Demographic data, clinical course, and outcome data were reviewed for patients who underwent placement of a venoarterial ECLS in a remote hospital and were transported to our tertiary care facility...

In recent years, an increasing number of papers have been published on the use of extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) in adult patients, but, although promising results have been reported in patients with in-hospital refractory cardiac arrest supported by extracorporeal life support (ECLS), data on patients with out-of-hospital (OHCA) cardiac arrest are scarce and conflicting. The present study aims at summarizing the available evidence on the use of ECPR in adult patients with OHCA, clinically focusing on the factors most often associated with outcome in these patients...

BACKGROUND: Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) devices maintain the circulation and oxygenation of organs during acute right ventricular failure and cardiogenic shock, bypassing the lungs. A pulmonary embolism can cause this life-threatening condition. ECLS is a considerably less invasive treatment than surgical embolectomy. Whether to bridge embolectomy or for a therapeutic purpose, ECLS is used almost exclusively following failure of all other therapeutic options. METHODS: From January 1, 2008 to June 30, 2014, five patients in cardiac arrest and with diagnosed pulmonary embolism (PE) were cannulated with the ECLS system...

BACKGROUND: The outcome of patients after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is poor and gets worse after prolonged resuscitation. Recently introduced attempts like an early installed emergency extracorporeal life support (E-ECLS) in patients with persisting cardiac arrest at the emergency department (ED) are tried. The "Vienna Cardiac Arrest Registry" (VICAR) was introduced August 2013 to collect Utstein-style data. The aim of this observational study was to identify the incidence of patients which fulfil "load&go"-criteria for E-ECLS at the ED...
