of cardiac systolic function. [ ] Causes What causes it? The main underlying causes of cardiacarrest include: Ischaemic heart disease (62.2%). Cardiovascular disease (12.1%). Cardiomyopathy/dysrhythmias (9.3%). Cardiacarrest is the result of four specific cardiac rhythm disturbances: Ventricular fibrillation (VF). Pulseless ventricular tachycardia (VT). Torsades de pointes is a sub-group of polymorphic VT in people with an underlying prolonged QT interval. Pulseless electrical activity. Asystole. VF (...) and VT are the most common causes of cardiacarrest, and are a result of ischaemic heart disease and acute myocardial ischaemia. Potential causes or aggravating factors during cardiacarrest include: Hypoxia. Hypovolaemia. Hyperkalaemia, hypokalaemia, hypocalcaemia, acidaemia, and other metabolic disorders. Hypothermia. Tension pneumothorax. Tamponade. Toxic substances. Thromboembolism. [ ; ] Prevalence How common is it? The UK ambulance service responds to around 60,000 cases of suspected cardiac
Treatment of a patient with acute aortic dissection using extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation after an outâ€ofâ€hospital cardiacarrest: a case report Circulatory support using veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation for aortic disease is conventionally contraindicated. In this case, a 66-year-old man experienced cardiopulmonary arrest caused by acute aortic dissection. When exercising in the gym, he experienced chest discomfort, so the staff immediately called an ambulance (...) . While in the ambulance, he experienced cardiopulmonary arrest. His initial electrocardiogram showed ventricular fibrillation. At the emergency department, we immediately performed extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation. We suspected acute coronary syndrome, so coronary angiography was carried out. Enlargement of ascending aorta was noted. Whole-body enhanced computed tomography was subsequently performed, leading to a final diagnosis of acute aortic dissection.Emergency ascending aorta
Case Report: Toxin-Induced CardiacArrest in Game of Thrones Case Report: Toxin-Induced CardiacArrest in Game of Thrones - CanadiEM Case Report: Toxin-Induced CardiacArrest in Game of Thrones In , by Will Wu December 12, 2017 King Joffrey I Baratheon was found in respiratory distress by his mother, Cersei Lannister, and Jaime Lannister during his wedding to Margaery Tyrell. As this was the wedding for the King of the Seven Kingdoms, numerous guests and bystanders were present. The patient (...) the specific management strategies of toxin-induced cardiacarrest and why we believe the resuscitative attempt (or lack thereof) for Joffrey demonstrated in this case was poor, even for a peasant, let alone the King of the Seven Kingdoms. He would have benefited from receiving proper supportive care with support from a Maester at King’s Landing and from emergency consultation with a Maester with expertise in posions. While the epidemiology of toxin-induced cardiacarrest (TICA) is understudied
Prehospital cooling to improve successful targeted temperature management after cardiacarrest: A randomized controlled trial Targeted temperature management (TTM) improves survival with good neurological outcome after out-of-hospital cardiacarrest (OHCA), but is delivered inconsistently and often with delay.To determine if prehospital cooling by paramedics leads to higher rates of 'successful TTM', defined as achieving a target temperature of 32-34°C within 6h of hospital arrival.Pragmatic (...) RCT comparing prehospital cooling (surface ice packs, cold saline infusion, wristband reminders) initiated 5min after return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) versus usual resuscitation and transport. The primary outcome was rate of 'successful TTM'; secondary outcomes were rates of applying TTM in hospital, survival with good neurological outcome, pulmonary edema in emergency department, and re-arrest during transport.585 patients were randomized to receive prehospital cooling (n=279) or control
A user-friendly risk-score for predicting in-hospital cardiacarrest among patients admitted with suspected non ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome - The SAFER-score To develop a simple risk-score model for predicting in-hospital cardiacarrest (CA) among patients hospitalized with suspected non-ST elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS).Using the Swedish Web-system for Enhancement and Development of Evidence-based care in Heart disease Evaluated According to Recommended Therapies (...) of in-hospital CA for NSTE-ACS and non-ACS was lower in the SWEDEHEART-derivation cohort than in MINAP (1.3% and 0.5% vs. 2.3% and 2.3%). A seven point, five variable risk score (age ≥60 years (1 point), ST-T abnormalities (2 points), Killip Class >1 (1 point), heart rate <50 or ≥100bpm (1 point), and systolic blood pressure <100mmHg (2 points) was developed. Model discrimination was good in the derivation cohort (c-statistic 0.72) and temporal validation cohort (c-statistic 0.74), and calibration

, the incidence of sudden cardiacarrest during participation in competitive sports was 0.76 cases per 100,000 athlete-years. The occurrence of sudden cardiacarrest due to structural heart disease was uncommon during participation in competitive sports. (Funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and others.). (...) Sudden CardiacArrest during Participation in Competitive Sports. The incidence of sudden cardiacarrest during participation in sports activities remains unknown. Preparticipation screening programs aimed at preventing sudden cardiacarrest during sports activities are thought to be able to identify at-risk athletes; however, the efficacy of these programs remains controversial. We sought to identify all sudden cardiacarrests that occurred during participation in sports activities within
Association of Public Health Initiatives With Outcomes for Out-of-Hospital CardiacArrest at Home and in Public Locations Little is known about the influence of comprehensive public health initiatives according to out-of-hospital cardiacarrest (OHCA) location, particularly at home, where resuscitation efforts and outcomes have historically been poor.To describe temporal trends in bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and first-responder defibrillation for OHCAs stratified by home vs (...) public location and their association with survival and neurological outcomes.This observational study reviewed 8269 patients with OHCAs (5602 [67.7%] at home and 2667 [32.3%] in public) for whom resuscitation was attempted using data from the CardiacArrest Registry to Enhance Survival (CARES) from January 1, 2010, through December 31, 2014. The setting was 16 counties in North Carolina.Patients were stratified by home vs public OHCA. Public health initiatives to improve bystander and first
Continuous versus intermittent neuromuscular blockade in patients during targeted temperature management after resuscitation from cardiacarrest-A randomized, double blinded, double dummy, clinical trial Current guidelines recommend targeted temperature management to improve neurological outcome after cardiacarrest. Evidence regarding an ideal sedative/analgesic regimen including skeletal muscle paralysis is limited.Patients were randomized to either a continuous administration of rocuronium (...) (continuous-NMB-group) or to a continuous administration of saline supplemented by rocuronium bolus administration if demanded (bolus-NMB-group). The primary outcome was the number of shivering episodes. Secondary outcomes included survival and neurological status one year after cardiacarrest, time to awakening, length of stay as well as required cumulative dose of rocuronium, midazolam and fentanyl.Sixty-three patients (32 continuous-NMB-group; 31 bolus-NMB-group) were enrolled. Differences in baseline
in neurobehavioural functioning at 1 year. Conclusion: in comatose children that survived in-hospital cardiacarrest, therapeutic hypothermia did not confer a significant benefit with respect to survival with a good functional outcome at 1 year compared with therapeutic normothermia. Conflicts of interest: several authors disclosed having receiving funds during the study. Funding sources: grants from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute and other institutions Critical Commentary Justification: based (...)

Barriers and facilitators to public access defibrillation in out-of-hospital cardiacarrest: a systematic review. Public access defibrillation initiatives make automated external defibrillators available to the public. This facilitates earlier defibrillation of out-of-hospital cardiacarrest victims and could save many lives. It is currently only used for a minority of cases. The aim of this systematic review was to identify barriers and facilitators to public access defibrillation
Association of Neighborhood Demographics With Out-of-Hospital CardiacArrest Treatment and Outcomes: Where You Live May Matter We examined whether resuscitation care and outcomes vary by the racial composition of the neighborhood where out-of-hospital cardiacarrests (OHCAs) occur.To evaluate the association between bystander treatments (cardiopulmonary resuscitation and automatic external defibrillation) and timing of emergency medical services personnel on OHCA outcomes according (...) nonsignificant association between racial composition in a neighborhood and survival.Those with OHCA in predominantly black neighborhoods had the lowest rates of bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation and automatic external defibrillation use and significantly lower likelihood for survival compared with predominantly white neighborhoods. Improving bystander treatments in these neighborhoods may improve cardiacarrest survival.
Sudden cardiacarrest in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with dynamic cavity obstruction: The case for a decatecholaminisation strategy Catecholamines are entrenched in the management of shock states. A paradigm shift has pervaded the critical care arena in recent years acknowledging their propensity to cause harm and fuel a 'death-spiral'. We present the case of a 21-year-old male following a witnessed out-of-hospital cardiacarrest who received high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation
Temporal Changes in the Racial Gap in Survival After In-Hospital CardiacArrest Previous studies have found marked differences in survival after in-hospital cardiacarrest by race. Whether racial differences in survival have narrowed as overall survival has improved remains unknown.To examine whether racial differences in survival after in-hospital cardiacarrest have narrowed over time and if such differences could be explained by acute resuscitation survival, postresuscitation survival (...) , and/or greater temporal improvement in survival at hospitals with higher proportions of black patients.In this cohort study from Get With the Guidelines-Resuscitation, performed from January 1, 2000, through December 31, 2014, a total of 112 139 patients with in-hospital cardiacarrest who were hospitalized in intensive care units or general inpatient units were studied.

Perimortem cesarean delivery and subsequent emergency hysterectomy: new strategy for maternal cardiacarrest Perimortem cesarean delivery (PMCD) is the only way to resuscitate pregnant women in cardiacarrest, and has been found to increase maternal resuscitation rate by increasing circulating plasma volume. However, many obstetricians have not experienced a case of PMCD, as situations requiring it are rare. We report our strategy for cases of maternal cardiacarrest, on the basis of a review
My Heart Goes Boom… ß-Blockers in CardiacArrest My Heart Goes Boom… ß-Blockers in CardiacArrest - CanadiEM My Heart Goes Boom… ß-Blockers in CardiacArrest In , by Sameer Sharif August 15, 2017 A 52-year-old male presents with chest pain. He arrests upon arrival to the Emergency Department and is found to be in ventricular fibrillation. You provide good CPR and defibrillate the patient, and treat him with doses of epinephrine and amiodarone in keeping with the ACLS algorithms. The patient (...) of Ventricular Fibrillation in CardiacArrest Ventricular fibrillation (VF) is the most common arrhythmia associated with out-of-hospital cardiacarrest. 1 Myocardial oxygen consumption increases more than 4-fold in ventricular fibrillation relative to rest. 2 Furthermore, during cardiacarrest and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), coronary blood flow may be reduced to levels as low as 20-40% of resting values. 3 Epinephrine has been a longstanding treatment for these patients, however, the literature has
Effectiveness of dispatcher training in increasing bystander chest compression for outâ€ofâ€hospital cardiacarrest patients in Japan The Japanese government has developed a standardized training program for emergency call dispatchers to improve their skills in providing oral guidance on chest compression to bystanders who have witnessed out-of-hospital cardiacarrests (OHCAs). This study evaluated the effects of such a training program for emergency call dispatchers in Japan.The analysis
