cpr pregnant

Benjamin Cobb, Steven Lipman
In contrast with other high-resource countries, maternal mortality has seen an increase in the United States. Caring for pregnant women in cardiac arrest may prove uniquely challenging given the rarity of the event coupled by the physiological changes of pregnancy. Optimization of resuscitative efforts warrants special attention as described in the 2015 American Heart Association's "Scientific Statement on Maternal Cardiac Arrest." Current recommendations address a variety of topics ranging from the basic components of chest compressions and airway management to some of the logistical complexities and operational challenges involved in maternal cardiac arrest...

BACKGROUND: Cardiotocography (CTG) is the most widely used procedure despite its low specificity for fetal acidosis and poor perinatal outcome. Fetal electrocardiography (fECG) with transabdominal electrodes is a new, non-invasive and promising method with greater potential for detecting impairment of fetal circulation. This study is the first that attempts to assess the usefulness of fECG in comparison to CTG during antepartum period. OBJECTIVES: To determine if a single fECG examination along with CTG tracing and Doppler flow measurement in the fetal vessels has any additional clinical value in normal and intrauterine growth restricted (IUGR) fetuses...

STUDY QUESTION: Does the timing of the first frozen embryo transfer (FET) after gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist triggering with the elective cryopreservation of all embryos affect pregnancy outcome? SUMMARY ANSWER: FETs performed immediately after a freeze-all cycle did not vary significantly from delayed FETs in terms of pregnancy rates. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: As interest in, and use of, the freeze-all strategy expands in the field of reproductive medicine, the optimal timing to perform the subsequent FET has become increasingly important...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary embolism (PE) can occur when a thrombus (blood clot) travels through the veins and lodges in the arteries of the lungs, producing an obstruction. People who are thought to be at risk include those with cancer, people who have had a recent surgical procedure or have experienced long periods of immobilisation and women who are pregnant. The clinical presentation can vary, but unexplained respiratory symptoms such as difficulty breathing, chest pain and an increased respiratory rate are common...

INTRODUCTION: The current approach to, cardiopulmonary resuscitation of pregnant women in the third trimester has been to adhere to the "four-minute rule": If pulses have not returned within 4min of the start of resuscitation, perform a cesarean birth so that birth occurs in the next minute. This investigation sought to re-examine the evidence for the four-minute rule. METHODS: A literature review focused on perimortem cesarean birth was performed using the same key words that were used in formulating the "four-minute rule...

INTRODUCTION: Centiles of middle cerebral artery pulsatility index and cerebroplacental ratio are useful for predicting adverse perinatal outcomes. A 'conditional centile' is conditioned by a previous measurement reflecting degree of individual change over time. Here we test whether such centiles are independent predictors and whether their combination improves prediction. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This prospective longitudinal study included 220 pregnant women diagnosed with or at risk of having a small-for-gestational-age fetus...

The management of cardiac arrest in pregnancy is an important task for the emergency physicians. Some reasons for cardiac arrest are reversible and should be recognized and managed promptly. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation follows general advanced cardiac life support guidelines with several modifications for pregnant women, taking into account the lives of both mother and fetus. Here, we present the case of 23-year-old pregnant patient who came to Guru Nanak Dev Hospital, Amritsar; in shock, had a cardiac arrest, successfully resuscitated in Intensive Care Unit (ICU), delivered by emergency cesarean section and was discharged from ICU on 9(th) day in healthy state...

BACKGROUND: High-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) by laypersons is a key determinant of both outcome and survival for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Dispatcher-assisted CPR (telephone-CPR, T-CPR) increases the frequency and correctness of bystander-CPR but results in prolonged time to first chest compressions. However, it remains unclear whether instructions for rescue ventilation and/or chest compressions should be recommended for dispatcher-assisted CPR. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate both principles of T-CPR with respect to CPR quality...

A pregnant, non-Japanese-speaking Peruvian, and, thus, with communication difficulty, suffered hyperemesis gravidarum and had respiratory arrest, requiring cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The obese pregnant woman (prepregnancy weight: 107 kg) had vomited and lost 15 kg in bodyweight over appropriately 2 weeks prior to the arrest but had not complained due to communication difficulty, which, together with her obesity, prevented a Japanese obstetrician from noticing her severe condition. 1,000 mL of low potassium fluid plus thiamine was administered...

Cardiac arrest during pregnancy is a rare event but it needs rapid and effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation to prevent loss of two lives. In this questionnaire survey, G2010 AHA-BLS Healthcare Provider Course participants answered four questions about CPR caveats which should be considered during pregnancy. The correct answer ratio is generally low among the four questions. Special situation explanation addition such as left uterine displacement in the AHA-BLS healthcare provider course may be needed for the empowerment of knowledge about cardiopulmonary resuscitation during pregnancy...

OBJECTIVE: High quality chest compressions are the cornerstone of effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). There is no available method of real time noninvasive hemodynamic measurement and feedback to inform rescuers of the efficacy of compressions. Ultrasound-based measures of blood flow may provide immediate, noninvasive hemodynamic information. Our objective was to determine the feasibility and safety of using ultrasound to measure blood flow on patients with cardiac arrest. METHODS: Study design This was a prospective cohort study in an emergency department setting...
