These traits provide useful clues for the prevention (...) of OHCAs and the improvement of prehospital care for these patients. Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest data were obtained from the population-based, Utstein-style registry in Osaka City, Japan, between 2009 and 2015. This study identified patients with OHCAs that occurred inside the toilet. The primary end-point was 1-month survival with favorable neurological outcome after OHCA. During the 7-year study period, a total of 18,458 OHCAs were identified. Of these cases, 849 (4.6%) occurred inside the toilet

The UK survival rate is around 8%, which is lower than in other developed countries. This review found that bystander assistance through cardiopulmonary resuscitation and attaching a defibrillator increased it to 32%, compared to 12% for police or firefighters. Survival rates were even higher for people who had a cardiac arrest that required a shock from the defibrillator, at 53% following intervention by bystanders.

33. Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: current concepts.

Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: current concepts. Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is a leading cause of global mortality. Regional variations in reporting frameworks and survival mean the exact burden of OHCA to public health is unknown. Nevertheless, overall prognosis and neurological outcome are relatively poor following OHCA and have remained almost static for the past three decades. In this Series paper, we explore the aetiology of OHCA. Coronary artery disease remains the predominant (...) cause, but there is a diverse range of other potential cardiac and non-cardiac causes to be aware of. Additionally, we describe how investigators and key stakeholders in resuscitation science have formulated specific Utstein data element domains in an attempt to standardise the definitions and outcomes reported in OHCA research so that management pathways can be improved. Finally, we identify the predictors of survival after OHCA and what primary and secondary prevention strategies can be instigated

34. Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: prehospital management.

Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: prehospital management. Sudden out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is the most time-critical medical emergency. In the second paper of this Series on out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, we considered important issues in the prehospital management of cardiac arrest. Successful resuscitation relies on a strong chain of survival with the community, dispatch centre, ambulance, and hospital working together. Early cardiopulmonary resuscitation and defibrillation has (...) the greatest impact on survival. If the community response does not restart the heart, resuscitation is continued by emergency medical services' staff. However, the best approaches for airway management and the effectiveness of currently used drug treatments are uncertain. Prognostic factors and rules for termination of resuscitation could guide the duration of a resuscitation attempt and decision to transport to hospital. If return of spontaneous circulation is achieved, the focus of treatment shifts

35. Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: in-hospital intervention strategies.

Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: in-hospital intervention strategies. The prognosis after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) has improved in the past few decades because of advances in interventions used outside and in hospital. About half of patients who have OHCA with initial ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation and who are admitted to hospital in coma after return of spontaneous circulation will survive to discharge with a reasonable neurological status. In this Series paper (...) we discuss in-hospital management of patients with post-cardiac-arrest syndrome. In most patients, the most important in-hospital interventions other than routine intensive care are continuous active treatment (in non-comatose and comatose patients and including circulatory support in selected patients), cooling of core temperature to 32-36°C by targeted temperature management for at least 24 h, immediate coronary angiography with or without percutaneous coronary intervention, and delay of final

The most common underlying causes are ischaemic heart disease and myocardial infarction. Presentation is usually sudden and manifests (...) as loss of consciousness but can be preceded by chest pain or dyspnoea. Treatment is through implementing the algorithms for basic and advanced cardiac life support, depending on the provider’s level of training. The overall survival from cardiac arrest, especially unwitnessed, is poor and, among early survivors, is fraught with complications of many organ systems due to ischaemic injury (i.e., multisystem organ failure).
