Mechanisms Underlying the Actions of Antidepressant and Antipsychotic Drugs That Cause Sudden Cardiac Arrest A number of antipsychotic and antidepressant drugs are known to increase the risk of ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. Based largely on a concern over the development of life-threatening arrhythmias, a number of antipsychotic drugs have been temporarily or permanently withdrawn from the market or their use restricted. While many antidepressants and antipsychotics have (...) and environmental factors that predispose to, the development of cardiac arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death among patients taking antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs that are in clinical use.

102. Characteristics and Prognosis of Exercise-Related Sudden Cardiac Arrest Full Text available with Trip Pro

Characteristics and Prognosis of Exercise-Related Sudden Cardiac Arrest Introduction: The previous studies about exercise-related sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) have mainly focused on sports activity, but information related to SCA in other forms of physical exercise is lacking. Our aim was to identify characteristics and prognosis of SCA victims in the general population who suffered SCA during physical activity. Methods and results: We collected retrospectively all cases of attempted (...) resuscitation in Oulu University Hospital Area between 2007 and 2012. A total of 300 cases were of cardiac origin. We only included witnessed cases with Emergency Medical System arrival time ≤15 min. Cases of low-intensity physical activity were excluded. A total of 47 SCAs occurred during moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (exercise-group) and 43 cases took place at rest (rest-group). The subjects in exercise-group were younger compared to the rest-group (60 ± 14 years vs. 67 ± 14 years, p = 0.016

103. A Randomized Trial of Epinephrine in Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest. Full Text available with Trip Pro

A Randomized Trial of Epinephrine in Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest. Concern about the use of epinephrine as a treatment for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest led the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation to call for a placebo-controlled trial to determine whether the use of epinephrine is safe and effective in such patients.In a randomized, double-blind trial involving 8014 patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in the United Kingdom, paramedics at five National Health Service (...) in more of the survivors in the epinephrine group than in the placebo group (39 of 126 patients [31.0%] vs. 16 of 90 patients [17.8%]).In adults with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, the use of epinephrine resulted in a significantly higher rate of 30-day survival than the use of placebo, but there was no significant between-group difference in the rate of a favorable neurologic outcome because more survivors had severe neurologic impairment in the epinephrine group.

Oxygen titration after resuscitation from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: A multi-centre, randomised controlled pilot study (the EXACT pilot trial) Recent studies suggest the administration of 100% oxygen to hyperoxic levels following return-of-spontaneous-circulation (ROSC) post-cardiac arrest may be harmful. However, the feasibility and safety of oxygen titration in the prehospital setting is unknown. We conducted a multi-centre, phase-2 study testing whether prehospital titration of oxygen (...) of patients had a SpO2 ≥ 94% (titrated: 90% vs. control: 100%) and all patients had a SpO2 ≥ 90%. One patient (control) re-arrested. Survival to hospital discharge was similar.Oxygen titration post-ROSC is feasible in the prehospital environment, but incremental titration commencing at 4L/min oxygen flow may be needed to maintain an oxygen saturation >90% (NCT02499042).Copyright © 2018 Elsevier B.V.

Out‐of‐hospital cardiac arrests in the toilet in Japan: a population‐based descriptive study This study aimed to reveal the characteristics and outcomes of patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCAs) occurring in the toilet. 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 (...) % [220/733] from January to March). Most OHCAs occurring inside the toilet were of cardiac origin (91.5% [671/733]), and 36.2% (265/733) were witnessed by bystanders. The proportion of patients with ventricular fibrillation was 5.2% (38/733) and those receiving shocks by public-access automated external defibrillators was 0.4% (3/733). The proportion of patients with 1-month survival with favorable neurological outcome was 1.9% (14/733).Out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occurring inside the toilet

Initial Phase NT-proBNP, but Not Copeptin and High-Sensitivity Cardiac Troponin-T Yielded Diagnostic and Prognostic Information in Addition to Clinical Assessment of Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Patients With Documented Ventricular Fibrillation Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) secondary to ventricular fibrillation (VF) may be due to different cardiac conditions. We investigated whether copeptin, hs-cTnT and NT-proBNP in addition to clinical assessment may help to identify the etiology of SCA (...) and yield prognostic information.EDTA-blood was collected prior to or at hospital admission from patients with SCA of assumed cardiac origin. Clinical data were obtained from hospital records. VF was the primary heart rhythm in 77 patients who initially were divided into 2 groups based on whether they had an ischemic or non-ischemic mechanism as the most likely cause of SCA. They were further divided into 4 groups according to whether or not they had a history of previous heart disease. The patients

Successful treatment of pulmonary embolism‐induced cardiac arrest by thrombolysis and targeted temperature management during pregnancy Thrombolysis for pulmonary embolism and targeted temperature management for cardiac arrest are controversial treatments in pregnancy.A 37-year-old woman at 23 weeks gestation presented with persistent dyspnea. She experienced cardiac arrest soon after arrival at the emergency room. Massive right ventricular dilatation on echocardiography during the transient (...) return of spontaneous circulation suggested pulmonary embolism. We administered recombinant tissue plasminogen activator for suspected pulmonary embolism to successfully resuscitate the patient experiencing refractory cardiac arrest despite heparin infusion. After an additional dose of monteplase for persistent shock with remaining right ventricular dilatation on echocardiography, maternal hemodynamics dramatically improved, but fetal heart rate transiently decreased.

Drug therapy in cardiac arrest: a review of the literature. The aim of this study was to review the literature on human studies of drug therapy in cardiac arrest during the last 25 years. In May 2015, a systematic literature search was performed in PubMed, Embase, the Cochrane Library, and CRD databases. Prospective interventional and observational studies evaluating a specified drug therapy in human cardiac arrest reporting a clinical endpoint [i.e. return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC (...) ) or survival] and published in English 1990 or later were included, whereas animal studies, case series and reports, studies of drug administration, drug pharmacology, non-specified drug therapies, preventive drug therapy, drug administration after ROSC, studies with primarily physiological endpoints, and studies of traumatic cardiac arrest were excluded. The literature search identified a total of 8936 articles. Eighty-eight articles met our inclusion criteria and were included in the review. We

119. Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: current concepts. (Abstract)

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
