BACKGROUND: Palliative care (PC) services are integral to the care of patients with advanced medical illnesses. Given the significant morbidity and mortality associated with cardiac arrest, we sought to measure the use and impact of PC in the care of patients treated with therapeutic hypothermia (TH). METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study of 317 consecutive patients undergoing TH after cardiac arrest. We compared intensive care unit (ICU) characteristics and clinical outcomes of subjects who received PC consultation (n=125) to those who did not (n=192)...

Post cardiac arrest, neuroprognostication remains a complex and clinically challenging issue for critical care providers. For this reason, our primary objective in this study was to determine the frequency of survival and favorable neurological outcomes in post-cardiac arrest patients with delayed time to awakening. To assess whether early withdrawal of care may adversely impact survival, we also sought to describe the time to withdrawal of care of non-surviving patients. We performed a retrospective study of patients resuscitated after cardiac arrest in two large academic community hospitals...

AIMS: Heart rate variability (HRV) is a measure of the balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic autonomic nervous system and lack thereof an ominous sign in many cardiac and neurological conditions including post-cardiac arrest syndrome. Whole body periodic acceleration (pGz) has been shown to be cardio protective when applied prior to during and after cardiac arrest (CA). Here, we investigate whether or not pGz pre or post treatment after CA preserves HRV. METHODS: Eight min of unsupported ventricular fibrillation followed by CPR and defibrillation was carried out in 32 anesthetized and paralyzed male swine who were randomized to pretreatment (1h pGz prior to CA, pre-pGz [n=8]) or post-treatment (pGz beginning at 30min after return of spontaneous circulation ([ROSC], post-pGz [n=8]) or none (CONT [n=8])...

AIMS: to explore the association between post return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) hemoglobin level and survival with good neurological outcome following out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. METHODS: We studied adults with non-traumatic out-of-hospital cardiac arrest who achieved ROSC within 50min of collapse. We quantified the association between post ROSC hemoglobin level and good neurological outcome (defined as Cerebral Performance Category score of 1or 2), using multivariate logistic regression analyses...

BACKGROUND: Systemic hypertension and left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) are major risk factors of cardiac arrest. However, the impacts of hypertension and LVH on the outcome of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and post-resuscitation hypothermia are still undetermined. METHODS: After 4 min of untreated ventricular fibrillation (VF) and 4 min of CPR, defibrillation was attempted in 16 male spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) with LVH and 16 male normotensive Wistar Kyoto (WKY) rats...

OBJECTIVE: Determination of clinical outcomes following resuscitation from cardiac arrest remains elusive in the immediate post-arrest period. Echocardiographic assessment shortly after resuscitation has largely focused on left ventricular (LV) function. We aimed to determine whether post-arrest right ventricular (RV) dysfunction predicts worse survival and poor neurologic outcome in cardiac arrest patients, independent of LV dysfunction. METHODS: A single-center, retrospective cohort study at a tertiary care university hospital participating in the Penn Alliance for Therapeutic Hypothermia (PATH) Registry between 2000 and 2012...

INTRODUCTION: Recent studies have brought to question the efficacy of the use of prehospital therapeutic hypothermia for victims of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). Though guidelines recommend therapeutic hypothermia as a critical link in the chain of survival, the safety of this intervention, with the possibility of minimal treatment benefit, becomes important. Hypothesis/Problem This study examined prehospital therapeutic hypothermia for OHCA, its association with survival, and its complication profile in a large, metropolitan, fire-based Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system, where bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and post-arrest care are in the process of being optimized...

BACKGROUND: Therapeutic hypothermia (TH) is a standard strategy to reduce brain damage in post-cardiac arrest syndrome (PCAS) patients. However, it is unknown whether the target temperature should be adjusted for PCAS patients in different states. METHODS: Participants in the J-PULSE-Hypo study database were divided into lower (32.0-33.5 °C; Group L) or moderate (34.0-35.0 °C; Group M) temperature groups. Primary outcome was a favourable neurological outcome (proportion of patients with a Glasgow-Pittsburgh Cerebral Performance Category [CPC] of 1-2 on day 30)...

BACKGROUND: In spite of the introduction of mild therapeutic hypothermia (MTH), mortality rates remain high in patients with return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) after cardiac arrest (CA). To date, no accurate and independent biomarker to predict survival in these patients exists. B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) was found to provide both prognostic and diagnostic value in various cardiovascular diseases, including survival to hospital discharge in patients with ROSC. However, the biologically inactive counterpart of BNP, NT-proBNP, was found to be a more stable and accurate analyte...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the prognostic potential of serum C-terminal provasopressin (CT-proAVP or Copeptin) and midregional pro-A-type natriuretic peptide (MR-proANP) to predict neurological outcome following resuscitation from cardiac arrest. METHODS: In this prospective observational study, we employed novel ultra sensitive immunoassay technology to examine serial serum samples from 134 cardiac arrest patients. Patients were either allocated to mild therapeutic hypothermia using an endovascular device or normothermia...

OBJECTIVES: Survival following sudden cardiac arrest is poor despite advances in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the use of therapeutic hypothermia. Dynamin-related protein 1, a regulator of mitochondrial fission, is an important determinant of reactive oxygen species generation, myocardial necrosis, and left ventricular function following ischemia/reperfusion injury, but its role in cardiac arrest is unknown. We hypothesized that dynamin-related protein 1 inhibition would improve survival, cardiac hemodynamics, and mitochondrial function in an in vivo model of cardiac arrest...

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is a significant issue affecting national health policies. The National Emergency Department Information System for Cardiac Arrest (NEDIS-CA) consortium managed a prospective registry of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) at the emergency department (ED) level. We analyzed the NEDIS-CA data from 29 participating hospitals from January 2008 to July 2009. The primary outcomes were incidence of OHCA and final survival outcomes at discharge. Factors influencing survival outcomes were assessed as secondary outcomes...

Although improvement in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) performance and the increasing success at achieving return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) have been possible in recent years, the survival and discharge rates of post-cardiac arrest (CA) patients remain disappointing. The high mortality rate is attributed to whole-body ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) induced multi-organ dysfunction that is well known as post-cardiac arrest syndrome. Post-cardiac arrest myocardial dysfunction and brain injury are the main clinical features of this complex pathophysiological process...

INTRODUCTION: Therapeutic hypothermia (TH) after cardiac arrest (CA) resuscitation is the first therapy proven to increase survival to discharge and neurologic recovery. Methods for neurologic and mortality prognostication after CA resuscitation have been called into question because they were developed based on evidence that was developed prior to the advent of TH. This study examines the relationship between electroencephalogram (EEG) patterns and mortality and neurologic outcomes in post-CA patients undergoing TH...

INTRODUCTION: Time to achieve target temperature varies substantially for patients who undergo targeted temperature management (TTM) after cardiac arrest. The association between arrival at target temperature and neurologic outcome is poorly understood. We hypothesized that shorter time from initiation of cooling to target temperature ("induction") will be associated with worse neurologic outcome, reflecting more profound underlying brain injury and impaired thermoregulatory control. METHODS: This was a multicenter retrospective study analyzing data from the Penn Alliance for Therapeutic Hypothermia (PATH) Registry...
