A potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia that is characterized by uncoordinated extremely rapid firing of electrical impulses (400-600/min) in HEART VENTRICLES. Such asynchronous ventricular quivering or fibrillation prevents any effective cardiac output and results in unconsciousness (SYNCOPE). It is one of the major electrocardiographic patterns seen with CARDIAC ARREST.
A federation of seven states on the southeast portion of the Arabian peninsula: Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm al-Qaiwain. In 1820 a treaty of peace was concluded between Great Britain and native rulers. During the 19th century the rulers agreed to suppression of the slave trade and restriction of foreign relations to Great Britain. The Trucial Council was established in 1952 and defense treaties with Great Britain terminated. In 1971 an independent six-member federation was formed, with Ras al-Khaimah joining the federation in 1972. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p1250)

Hypothermia after cardiac arrest: feasibility and safety of an external cooling protocol. (1/55)

BACKGROUND: No proven neuroprotective treatment exists for ischemic brain injury after cardiac arrest. Mild-to-moderate induced hypothermia (MIH) is effective in animal models. METHODS AND RESULTS: A safety and feasibility trial was designed to evaluate mild-to-moderate induced hypothermia by use of external cooling blankets after cardiac arrest. Inclusion criteria were return of spontaneous circulation within 60 minutes of advanced cardiac life support, hypothermia initiated within 90 minutes, persistent coma, and lack of acute myocardial infarction or unstable dysrhythmia. Hypothermia to 33 degrees C was maintained for 24 hours followed by passive rewarming. Nine patients were prospectively enrolled. Mean time from advanced cardiac life support to return of spontaneous circulation was 11 minutes (range 3 to 30); advanced cardiac life support to initiation of hypothermia was 78 minutes (range 40 to 109); achieving 33 degrees C took 301 minutes (range 90 to 690). Three patients completely recovered, and 1 had partial neurological recovery. One patient developed unstable cardiac dysrhythmia. No other unexpected complications occurred. CONCLUSIONS: Mild-to-moderate induced hypothermia after cardiac arrest is feasible and safe. However, external cooling is slow and imprecise. Efforts to speed the start of cooling and to improve the cooling process are needed.  (+info)

Delphi type methodology to develop consensus on the future design of EMS systems in the United Kingdom. (2/55)

OBJECTIVE: To develop consensus opinion on future design characteristics of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) systems in the UK with particular regard to advanced life support skills (ALS). DESIGN: A Delphi questionnaire design with two rounds to gain a consensus of opinion. Investigation of four aspects of EMS design is reported-type of response to a priority based dispatch category, transportation options, enhancement of paramedic skills, and structure of a first responder system. SUBJECTS: Chief executives, directors of operations, and medical directors of Ambulance Trusts in the United Kingdom. OUTCOME MEASURES: Likert scales (0-9) to score opinion on a series of statements with achievement of inter-round consistency. A median score of 0-4 was classified as disagreement and 6-9 as agreement. RESULTS: A 65% response to the first questionnaire and with iteration, 52% response to the second questionnaire was attained. A tiered response (paramedics, technicians, and basic life support first responders) with technicians responding to selected category A and B calls and all category C calls (median score (MS) 7.5, interquartile range (IQR) 4), was recommended. Inter-unit handover of selected calls to maintain paramedic availablity ( MS 7.5, IQR 3.75) and enhancement of paramedic skills (MS 7.0, IQR 4.0) was also proposed. Finally, the development of a first responder system fully integrated into the EMS (MS 8.0, IQR 2.75) involving other agencies including the police force, fire service, and trained members of the local community was agreed. CONCLUSIONS: Senior expert staff from Ambulance Trusts in the UK achieved consensus on certain design characteristics of EMS systems. These are significantly different from the present EMS model.  (+info)

Stress during ACLS courses: is it important for learning skills? (3/55)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the influence of stress on teaching medical emergencies in an Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) course and to verify this influence on learning, and the efficiency of emergency care training. METHODS: Seventeen physicians signed up for an ACLS course. Their pulses were taken and blood pressure (BP) verified on the first day, before the beginning of the course, and on the second day, during the theoretical and practical test (TPT). Variations in pulse rates and BP were compared with students' test grades. Then, students answered a questionnaire of variables (QV) about the amount of sleep they had during the course, the quantity of study material and the time spent studying for the course, and a stress scale graphic. RESULTS: Seven students had a pulse variation less than 10% between the 2 periods and 10 had a 10% or more variation. Grades on TPT were, respectively, 91.4+/-2.4 and 87.3+/-5.2 (p<0.05). Six students had a BP variation less than 20 mmHg, and in 11 it varied more than 21 mmHg. Grades on the TPT were 92.3+/-3.3 and 86.2+/- 8.1, respectively (p<0.05). The QV dates did not significantly influence grades. CONCLUSION: Stress, as an isolated variable, had a negative influence on the learning process and on the efficiency of emergency training in this situation.  (+info)

Multicenter Canadian study of prehospital trauma care. (4/55)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate whether the type of on-site care a trauma patient receives affects outcome. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: The controversy regarding the prehospital care of trauma patients between Advanced Life Support (ALS) and Basic Life Support (BLS) is ongoing. Due to this unresolved controversy, as well as historical, cultural, and political factors, there are significant variations with respect to the type of prehospital care available for trauma patients. METHODS: This prospective cohort study compared three types of prehospital trauma care systems: Montreal, where physicians provide ALS (MD-ALS); Toronto, where paramedics provide ALS (PMD-ALS); and Quebec City, where emergency medical technicians provide BLS only (EMT-BLS). The study took advantage of this variation to evaluate the association between the type of on-site care and mortality in patients with major life-threatening injuries. All patients were treated at highly specialized tertiary (level I) trauma hospitals. The main outcome measure was death as a result of injury. Follow-up was to hospital discharge. RESULTS: The overall mortality rates by type of on-site personnel were physicians 35%, paramedics 24%, and EMTs 18%. For patients with major but survivable trauma, the overall mortality rates were physicians 32%, paramedics 28%, and EMTs 26%. The overall mortality rate of patients receiving only BLS at the scene was 18% compared to 29% for patients receiving ALS. For the subgroup of patients with major but survivable injuries, the mortality rates were 30% for ALS and 26% for BLS. The adjusted increased risk for mortality in patients receiving ALS at the scene was 21%. CONCLUSIONS: In urban centers with highly specialized level I trauma centers, there is no benefit in having on-site ALS for the prehospital management of trauma patients.  (+info)

Prehospital cardiac arrest outcome is adversely associated with antiarrythmic agent use, but not associated with presenting complaint or medical history. (5/55)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: This study associated survival from prehospital cardiac arrest to patient historical variables including presenting complaint, medications used, and medical history as a secondary end point in a trial evaluating the effect of bicarbonate administration. This raises issues concerning extensive prehospital historical assessment that may potentially delay care and transport. METHODS: This prospective multicentre trial enrolled 874 prehospital cardiac arrest patients encountered by urban, suburban, and rural emergency medical services. This group underwent conventional ACLS intervention followed by empiric early administration of sodium bicarbonate (1mEq/l). Survival was measured as the presence of vital signs on emergency department arrival. Data analysis used Student's t test, Fisher's exact test, chi2 with Pearson correlation, and logistic regression (p<0.05). Secondary end points were analysed including an association with common historical variables such as medical history, presenting complaint, or drugs used. RESULTS: The overall survival rate was 13.9% (110 of 793) of prehospital arrest patients. There was no correlation between historical factors, such as chief complaint or history of present illness (p = 0.277), medical history (p = 0.425), presence of specific disease conditions (p = 0.1125-0.956), or overall drug use (p = 0.002-0.9848). However, there was an adverse association between specific antiarrhythmic use (p = 0.003) and outcome. CONCLUSION: There is little relation of patient historical factors on the outcome from prehospital cardiac arrest raising issues of efficiency with history taking in prehospital care and transport.  (+info)

Prehospital advanced trauma life support: how should we manage the airway, and who should do it? (6/55)

Adequate oxygenation at all times is of paramount importance to the critically injured patient to avoid secondary damage. The role of endotracheal intubation in out-of-hospital advanced trauma life support, however, remains controversial. Initiated by a recent observational study, this commentary discusses risks and benefits associated with prehospital intubation, the required personnel and training, and ethical implications. Recent evidence suggests that comprehensive ventilatory care already initiated in the field and maintained during transport may require the presence of a physician or another adequately skilled person at the scene. Benefits of such as service need to be balanced against increased costs.  (+info)

Clinical review: Reappraising the concept of immediate defibrillatory attempts for out-of-hospital ventricular fibrillation. (7/55)

Despite well developed emergency medical services with rapid response advanced life support capabilities, survival rates following out-of-hospital ventricular fibrillation (VF) have remained bleak in many venues. Generally, these poor resuscitation rates are attributed to delays in the performance of basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation by bystanders or delays in defibrillation, but recent laboratory data suggest that the current standard of immediately providing a countershock as the first therapeutic intervention may be detrimental when VF is prolonged beyond several minutes. Several studies now suggest that when myocardial energy supplies begin to dwindle following more prolonged periods of VF, improvements in coronary artery perfusion must first be achieved in order to prime the heart for successful return of spontaneous circulation after defibrillation. Therefore, before countershocks, certain pharmacologic and/or mechanical interventions might take precedence during resuscitative efforts. This evolving concept has been substantiated recently by clinical studies, including a controlled clinical trial, demonstrating a significant improvement in survival when basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation is provided for several minutes before the initial countershock. Although this evolving concept differs from current standards and may pose a potential problem for automated defibrillator initiatives (e.g. public access defibrillation), successful defibrillation and return of spontaneous circulation have been rendered more predictable by evolving technologies that can score the VF waveform signal and differentiate between those who can be shocked immediately and those who should receive other interventions first.  (+info)

Review of guidelines for pediatric advanced life support. (8/55)

Most of the 2000 Guidelines related to PALS remain unchanged. The changes that were made are based on a review of the literature and were made to simplify the overall management of the critically ill child. Despite these changes, the primary goals of PALS--early recognition of respiratory failure and shock and prevention of cardiopulmonary arrest--remain unchanged.  (+info)

Given improvement in test scores, we advocate for and support the AHA decision to incorporate FC and TBL techniques in the educational program for the 2015 ACLS guidelines. Evaluation methods for mastery of ACLS course, per the AHA include both content (written) and performance assessments. Successful students must demonstrate team leadership and psychomotor skills in managing cardiac arrest and peri-arrest scenarios. Though evidence for content and construct validity for the written portion of ACLS assessment is largely lacking, and some evidence is to the contrary, both written and performance assessments have been shown to correlate moderately. A previous study advocated for dual evaluation methods as complementary, demonstrating different psychomotor and cognitive skills [8,9]. Given delivery of similar content in our course, improvements in test scores indicate further mastery of the required material. In the highest-stakes environment of cardiac arrest, demonstration of mastery at an ...

Many healthcare providers are trained to administer some form of ALS. In out-of-hospital settings trained emergency medical technicians, paramedics or medics typically provide this level of care. Canadian paramedics may be certified in either ALS (Advance Care Paramedic-ACP) or in Basic Life Support (Primary Care Paramedic-PCP) (see paramedics in Canada). Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) are often skilled in ALS, although they may employ slightly modified version of the Medical algorithm. In the United States, Paramedic level services are referred to as Advanced Life Support (ALS). Services staffed by basic EMTs are referred to as Basic Life Support (BLS). Services staffed by Advanced Emergency Medical Technicians can be called Limited Advanced Life Support (LALS) Intermediate Life Support (ILS), or simply Advanced Life Support (ALS), depending on the State.

Epinephrine hydrochloride produces beneficial effects in patients during cardiac arrest, primarily because of its α-adrenergic receptor-stimulating properties.1 The adrenergic effects of epinephrine increase myocardial and cerebral blood flow during CPR.2 The value and safety of the β-adrenergic effects of epinephrine are controversial because they may increase myocardial work and reduce subendocardial perfusion.3 Although epinephrine has been used universally in resuscitation, there is a paucity of evidence to show that it improves outcome in humans. For a number of years researchers and clinicians have also questioned the optimal dose of epinephrine. The standard dose of epinephrine (1.0 mg) is not based on body weight. Historically a standard dose of 1 mg epinephrine was used in surgical operating rooms for intracardiac injections.4 5 6 Surgeons observed that 1 to 3 mg of intracardiac epinephrine was effective in restarting the arrested heart.6 7 When these and other experts first ...
In the absence of a protected airway, providing adequate lung inflations may require pharyngeal pressures sufficient to cause gastric inflation, subsequent regurgitation, and the potential for aspiration of gastric contents into the lungs.48 49 50 51 In extreme cases, gastric inflation may elevate the diaphragm sufficiently to interfere with lung inflation.52 53 Therefore, as soon as practical during the resuscitative process, trained personnel should intubate the trachea or insert an alternative airway (LMA or ETC).. Tracheal intubation should be preceded by preoxygenation of the patient. If the patient is ventilating spontaneously, preoxygenation is achieved by providing 3 minutes of high-flow oxygen. If spontaneous ventilation is insufficient, assist ventilation with a bag-mask device.54 Currently the tracheal tube is considered the ventilation adjunct of choice because it keeps the airway patent, permits suctioning of airway secretions, ensures delivery of a high concentration of oxygen, ...
