AIMS: The introduction of dispatcher assistance (DA) services has led to increased bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) participation rates. However, the extent to which DA improves CPR quality remains unclear. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of DA in improving CPR quality among healthcare professionals and laypersons within a multi-ethnic Southeast Asian population. METHODS: A parallel, randomised controlled, open label trial was performed. Four hundred and twelve participants were recruited via convenience sampling in a public location...

AIM: This study aimed to seek evidence for the usefulness of the procalcitonin as a prognostic blood biomarker for outcomes in post-cardiac arrest patients. METHODS: We systematically searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library (search date: 8 Jan, 2019). Studies on patients who experienced return of spontaneous circulation, who had out of hospital cardiac arrest and had their level of procalcitonin measured and outcomes assessed at and after hospital discharge, were included...

BACKGROUND: Extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) is emerging as a viable rescue strategy for refractory out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. In the U.S., limited training of emergency medicine providers is a barrier to widespread implementation. AIMS: Test the hypothesis that emergency medicine physicians and nurses can acquire and retain the skills to rapidly and safely initiate ECPR using high-fidelity simulation. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective interventional study...

BACKGROUND: Interruptions in compressions reduce the efficacy of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and are inevitable during hands-off periods for shocks. Clinical exam gloves were found to facilitate safe contact with patients during shock delivery but the safety of this practice has been questioned. Polyethylene is of interest because of its safety record in the medical arena and its electrical insulation properties. METHODS: This study measured the current leak through 2 mil (0...

AIM: To assess the use of advanced airway interventions (tracheal intubation (TI) or supraglottic airway (SGA) placement), compared with bag mask ventilation (BMV) alone, for resuscitation of children in cardiac arrest. METHODS: We searched Medline, EMBASE, and Cochrane Controlled Register of Trials (CENTRAL) for human trials and observational studies published before September 24, 2018 for clinical trials and observational studies with a comparison group. Two investigators reviewed studies for relevance, extracted data, and assessed risk of bias using the GRADE and CLARITY frameworks...

PURPOSE: It has previously been shown that continuous intratracheal insufflation of oxygen (CIO) is superior to intermittent positive pressure ventilation (IPPV) regarding gas exchange and haemodynamics. The purpose of this study was to investigate gas exchanged and haemodynamics with a new technique of phase-controlled intermittent insufflation of oxygen (PIIO) compared to CIO. METHOD: Twenty (20) pigs were used, stratified into two groups (CIO, PIIO), with 10 animals each...

BACKGROUND: In Taiwan, emergency department (ED) crowding is inevitable; many studies have investigated the various negative effects of ER crowding on patients. In general, ED crowding reduces patient satisfaction, delays treatment, and increases mortality. However, most studies have focused on the relationship between ED crowding and delay mortality rather than sudden mortality. This study investigates the association of ED crowding with sudden unexpected in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA)...

There is interest in the association between partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PCO2 ) and neurological outcome following cardiac arrest. Extracorporeal life support is increasingly used in the setting of refractory cardiac arrest (ECPR) but there is a lack of standardisation of PCO2 management during ECPR. We prospectively evaluated CO2 values and investigated the importance of blood sampling site in a series of 23 children undergoing ECPR, comparing the patient's arterial PCO2 (PaCO2 ) with samples taken pre- (Ppre-oxyCO2 ), and post- (Ppost-oxyCO2 ) the circuit oxygenator...

BACKGROUND: Dispatcher-assisted cardiopulmonary resuscitation (DA-CPR) has been reported in individual studies to significantly increase the rate of bystander CPR and survival from cardiac arrest. METHODS: We undertook a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the impact of DA-CPR programs on key clinical outcomes following out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. We searched the PubMED, EMBASE, CINAHL, ERIC and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials databases from inception until July 2018...

AIM: "Early" withdrawal of life support therapies (eWLST) within the first 3 calendar days after resuscitation from cardiac arrest (CA) is discouraged. We evaluated a prospective multicenter registry of patients admitted to hospitals after resuscitation from CA to determine predictors of eWLST and estimate its impact on outcomes. METHODS: CA survivors enrolled from 2012-2017 in the International Cardiac Arrest Registry (INTCAR) were included. We developed a propensity score for eWLST and matched a cohort with similar probabilities of eWLST who received ongoing care...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Unsuccessful defibrillation shocks adversely affect survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). Ventricular fibrillation (VF) waveform analysis is the tool-of-choice for the non-invasive prediction of shock success, but surrogate markers of perfusion like end-tidal CO2 (EtCO2 ) could improve the prediction. The aim of this study was to evaluate EtCO2 as predictor of shock success, both individually and in combination with VF-waveform analysis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In total 514 shocks from 214 OHCA patients (75 first shocks) were analysed...

AIM: To compare dyad (training in pairs without an instructor) with resource-intensive instructor-led training for laypersons' paediatric resuscitation skills in a non-inferiority trial and examine cost-effectiveness of the training methods. METHODS: In this randomised parallel group non-inferiority trial, 155 dyad and 175 instructor-led laypersons were trained in Basic Life Support and Foreign Body Airway Obstruction Management. Dyads were given instructional videos, hands-on exercises and provided feedback to their partner for 50 min...

BACKGROUND: Hypoxic liver injury (HLI) is a frequent and life-threatening complication in critically ill patients that occurs in up to ten percent of critically ill patients. However, there is a lack of data on HLI following cardiac arrest and its clinical implications on outcome. Aim of this study was to investigate incidence, outcome and functional outcome of patients with HLI after in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA) and out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). METHODS: We conducted an analysis of a cardiac arrest registry data over a 7-year period...
