Cardiac arrest : science and practice of resuscitation medicine by Norman A Paradis( )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cardiac Arrest is the definitive and most comprehensive reference in advanced life support and resuscitation medicine. This new edition brings the reader completely up-to-date with developments in the field, focusing on practical issues of decision making, clinical management and prevention, as well as providing clear explanations of the science informing the practice. The coverage includes information on the latest pharmacotherapeutic options, the latest chest compression techniques and airway management protocols, all backed by clearly explained, evidence-based scientific research. The content is consistent with the latest guidelines for practice in this area, as detailed by the major international governing organisations. This volume is essential reading for all those working in the hospital environments of emergency medicine, critical care, cardiology and anesthesia, as well as those providing care in the pre-hospital setting, including paramedics and other staff from the emergency services

Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Targeted temperature management and early coronary angiography have become the standard of care for postcardiac arrest patients remaining comatose and with ST-segment elevation on the ECG. Less clear is the optimal approach for similar patients without ST-segment elevation on the postresuscitation ECG. However, current data from nonrandomized cohort studies suggest that many of these patients also benefit from an aggressive approach to postresuscitation care. Recent reports of increased stent thrombosis in the postarrest population need further exploration

Neurologic Outcomes and Postresuscitation Care of Patients With Myoclonus Following Cardiac Arrest*( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

<Title><x>Abstract</x></title><sec><title>Objectives:</title>To evaluate the outcomes of cardiac arrest survivors with myoclonus receiving modern postresuscitation care.</sec><sec><title>Design:</title>Retrospective review of registry data.</sec><sec><title>Setting:</title>Cardiac arrest receiving centers in Europe and the United States from 2002 to 2012.</sec><sec><title>Patients:</title>Two thousand five hundred thirty-two cardiac arrest survivors 18 years or older enrolled in the International Cardiac Arrest Registry.</sec><sec><title>Interventions:</title>None.</sec><sec><title>Measurements and Main Results:</title>Eighty-eight percent of patients underwent therapeutic hypothermia and 471 (18%) exhibited myoclonus. Patients with myoclonus had longer time to professional cardiopulmonary resuscitation (8.6 vs 7.0 min;<italic>p</italic><0.001) and total ischemic time (25.6 vs 22.3 min;<italic>p</italic><0.001) and less often presented with ventricular tachycardia/ventricular fibrillation, a witnessed arrest, or had bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Electroencephalography demonstrated myoclonus with epileptiform activity in 209 of 374 (55%), including status epilepticus in 102 of 374 (27%). Good outcome (Cerebral Performance Category 1-2) at hospital discharge was noted in 9% of patients with myoclonus, less frequently in myoclonus with epileptiform activity (2% vs 15%;<italic>p</italic><0.001). Patients with myoclonus with good outcome were younger (53.7 vs 62.7 yr;<italic>p</italic><0.001), had more ventricular tachycardia/ventricular fibrillation (81% vs 46%;<italic>p</italic><0.001), shorter ischemic time (18.9 vs 26.4 min;<italic>p</italic>= 0.003), more witnessed arrests (91% vs 77%;<italic>p</italic>= 0.02), and fewer "do-not-resuscitate" orders (7% vs 78%;<italic>p</italic><0.001). Life support was withdrawn in 330 of 427 patients (78%) with myoclonus and poor outcome, due to neurological futility in 293 of 330 (89%), at 5 days (3-8 d) after resuscitation. With myoclonus and good outcome, median ICU length of stay was 8 days (5-11 d) and hospital length of stay was 14.5 days (9-22 d).</sec><sec><title>Conclusions:</title>Nine percent of cardiac arrest survivors with myoclonus after cardiac arrest had good functional outcomes, usually in patients without associated epileptiform activity and after prolonged hospitalization. Deaths occurred early and primarily after withdrawal of life support. It is uncertain whether prolonged care would yield a higher percentage of good outcomes, but myoclonus of itself should not be considered a sign of futility.</sec>
