OBJECTIVE: Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) emerges as a salvage option in therapy refractory cardiogenic shock but is limited to highly specialized tertiary care centers. Critically ill patients are often too unstable for conventional transport. Mobile ECLS programs for remote implantation and subsequent air or ground-based transport for patient retrieval could solve this dilemma and make full-spectrum advanced cardiac care available to patients in remote hospitals in whom shock otherwise might be fatal...

INTRODUCTION: Yew plants are evergreen shrubs which are widely spread throughout the northern hemisphere. Taxane alkaloid derivatives, mainly taxine B, represent the main toxins of Taxus baccata and are highly cardiotoxic. Due to the lack of randomized clinical trials, case reports on accidental or suicidal yew intoxications build the only source of knowledge of clinical treatment options. CASE REPORT: We report the case of a suicidal yew ingestion admitted to our hospital under prolonged cardiopulmonary resuscitation due to pulseless electrical activity...

Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) has shown benefits in the management of refractory in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA) by improving survival. Nonetheless, the results concerning out-of-hospital refractory cardiac arrests (OHCA) remain uncertain. The aim of our investigation was to compare survival between the two groups. We realized a single-center retrospective, observational study of all patients who presented IHCA or OHCA treated with ECLS between 2011 and 2015. Multivariate analysis was realized to determine independent factors associated with mortality...

INTRODUCTION: Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) has been reported to be more effective than conventional cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). In ECLS, a shorter time from arrival to implantation of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO; door-to-ECMO) time was predicted to be associated with better survival rates. This study aimed to examine the impact of the physician-based emergency medical services (P-EMS) using a rapid response car (RRC) on door-to-ECMO time in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA)...

INTRODUCTION: The often-unexpected necessity of extracorporeal life support (ECLS) implies that information on patients and end-organ functions at time of implantation is scarce. However, there is a need for early prognostic indicators and a score predicting the outcome. Therefore, we evaluated established laboratory parameters and widely used intensive care scores - cardiac surgery score (CASUS) and sequential organ failure assessment (SOFA) after ECLS implantation. METHODS: In this retrospective analysis, 90 consecutive adult patients with veno-arterial ECLS were included...

Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) provides mechanical support following cardiac surgery when respiratory or cardiac failure occurs. The aim of this study was to analyze the safety and feasibility of the Medos Deltastream diagonal pump (DP3) ECLS system in pediatric cardiac patients. We described the technical considerations and risk factors related to the survival outcomes in 102 pediatric cardiac patients who received ECLS support between March 2011 and April 2016. We switched from the DP2 system, which was used for the initial 25 patients, to the DP3 system after November 2012...

BACKGROUND: Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) is widely used in refractory cardiac or pulmonary failure. Because complications of general thoracic surgery frequently involve the heart or lungs, ECLS can be a useful option. Therefore, we retrospectively reviewed our experience with ECLS after general thoracic surgery. METHODS: There were 17,185 adult general thoracic surgery procedures between 2005 and 2013 at our institution, including resection of the lung (n = 10,434; 60...

BACKGROUND: Extra corporeal life support (ECLS) is presently first line therapy for refractory cardiogenic shock. Mobile circulatory support teams implant ECLS or extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in patients in the hospital without circulatory support. These patients are then transported to specialized centers. Here we report a case of sending a mobile circulatory support team abroad, followed by air ambulance evacuation, which, to our knowledge, has never been used as part of medical assistance abroad...

AIMS: Elevated levels of plasma free hemoglobin (fHb) indicate red blood cell (RBC) damage. The aim of this study was to analyze the prevalence of hemolysis and metabolic acidosis in patients on extracorporeal life support (ECLS) and to investigate whether it is a marker for outcome. METHODS AND RESULTS: This retrospective analysis included 215 adult patients with cardiac failure treated with ECLS. The cohort was divided into three groups: ECLS (1) during ongoing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR, n = 110); (2) after CPR with return of spontaneous circulation and sustained cardiogenic shock (n = 45); (3) in severe cardiogenic shock without previous CPR (n = 60)...

Accurate analysis of specific biomarkers in clinical serum is essential for early diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Here, a surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS)-based immunoassay, using magnetic beads and SERS nano tags, was developed for the determination of free to total (f/t) prostate specific antigen (PSA) ratio to improve the diagnostic performance of prostate cancer. To assess the clinical applicability of the proposed method, SERS-based assays for the simultaneous detection of dual PSA markers, free PSA (f-PSA) and complexed PSA (c-PSA), were performed for clinical samples in the gray zone between 4...
