A 84-year-old man who had experienced cardiac arrest in the ambulance was brought to the emergency room. He had been followed at outpatient after surgery for colon cancer and known to be suffered from mild renal impairment. The cardio pulmonary arrest was likely to be caused by acute exacerbation of that. He was resuscitated and immediately recovered without severe hypoxic encephalopathy or deterioration of renal function. However, the flail chest by manual cardiac compression sustained. It urged him to be managed under the ventilator and he seemed difficult to leave from that within a couple of weeks...

OBJECTIVE: Our asphyxia cardiac arrest (ACA) rat model is well established. The original model was designed in the 1990(th) using halothane and nitrous oxide for pre-insult anesthesia. Because of its hepato-toxicity and its potential to induce severe liver failures, halothane is no longer used in clinical anesthesia for several years. In order to minimize the health risk for our laboratory staff as well as to keep the experimental settings of our model on a clinically oriented basis we decided to replace halothane by sevoflurane...

BACKGROUND: Massive pulmonary embolism (PE) is associated with significant mortality, especially if compounded by haemodynamic instability, right ventricular (RV) dysfunction and right atrial (RA) thrombus. Thrombolysis can be lifesaving in patients with major embolism and cardiogenic shock, and accelerates the resolution of thrombus. Only three fibrinolytic agents-namely streptokinase, urokinase, and recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (alteplase) have been approved in the treatment of PE, with studies demonstrating similar safety profiles...

A 69-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with cardiopulmonary arrest. Percutaneous cardio-pulmonary support (PCPS) using the right femoral artery and vein was initiated, because ventricular fibrillation continued. Although we succeeded in defibrillation after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), a chest radiograph indicated a pneumothorax in the right lung and a pulmonic contusion in the left lung caused by cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Two days after PCI, partial pressure of arterial oxygen (PaO2) from the right radial artery suddenly decreased, and his cardiac function showed improvement on an echocardiogram...

Serum N-terminal pro b-type natriuretic peptide (NT-pro-BNP) testing is recommended in the patients with heart failure (HF). We hypothesized that NT-pro-BNP, in combination with other clinical factors in terms of a novel NT-pro BNP-based score, may provide even better predictive power for in-hospital mortality among patients with HF. A retrospective study enrolled adult patients with hospitalization-requiring HF who fulfilled the predefined criteria during the period from January 2011 to December 2013. We proposed a novel scoring system consisting of several independent predictors including NT-pro-BNP for predicting in-hospital mortality, and then compared the prognosis-predictive power of the novel NT-pro BNP-based score with other prognosis-predictive scores...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: When a person with dementia (PWD) has lost the ability to make treatment decisions, clinicians often rely on family carers to know and articulate these preferences with assumed accuracy. This study used the Life Support Preferences Questionnaire (LSPQ) to explore whether family carers' choices show agreement with the end of life care preferences of the person with dementia for whom they care and what factors influence this. METHODS: A cross-sectional study interviewing 60 dyads (a person with early dementia and preserved capacity and their family carer) each completing a modified LSPQ...

Critically ill newborns, whether term or preterm, are at great risk for developing symptomatic thromboembolic disease. Comorbidities like inflammation, DIC, fluctuations in cardiac output, congenital heart disease, as well as central venous or arterial catheters, are the predisposing risk factors. Clinically symptomatic or asymptomatic cases are usually picked up by echocardiography, usually done for other indications. Management usually comprises of observation, heparin therapy, thrombo-embolectomy, and catheter directed revascularization...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a procedure which was done both in hospital or pre-hospital in order to return life after clinical death. Although the most cardiac attacks happen out of hospital, but there are lack of existing studies related to CPR assessment in pre-hospital conditions. Then this study carried out in order to show the outcome of pre-hospital CPR procedures and its related factors in Medical Emergency Centers of Ardebil city. METHOD: This descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted on 272 CPR cases in the Emergency Medical Center (EMS) in Ardabil, between 2012 and 2013...

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...
