A resuscitated case from asphyxia by large bronchial cast. (1/1070)

A 62-year-old woman with bronchiectasis suffered from asphyxia due to a large bronchial cast that obstructed the bronchial tree. Immediate bronchoscopic suction of a bronchial cast of 17 cm in length through the intubated tube relieved the patients without any complications. Large bronchial casts appear to be rare in this century but it should be considered in patients with acute exacerbation of excessive sputa not only in patients with asthma or allergy but also in patients with respiratory tract infection.  (+info)

Intraosseous lines in preterm and full term neonates. (2/1070)

AIM: To evaluate the use of intraosseous lines for rapid vascular access in primary resuscitation of preterm and full term neonates. METHODS: Thirty intraosseous lines were placed in 27 newborns, in whom conventional venous access had failed. RESULTS: All the neonates survived the resuscitation procedure, with no long term side effects. CONCLUSION: Intraosseous infusion is quick, safe, and effective in compromised neonates.  (+info)

Should doctors practise resuscitation skills on newly deceased patients? A survey of public opinion. (3/1070)

Trainee doctors must acquire skills in resuscitation, but opportunities for learning on real patients are limited. One option is to practise these skills in newly deceased patients. We sought opinions from 400 multiethnic guests at an open-access dinner dance for members of a local community. The questionnaire could elicit the responses strongly agree, agree, unsure, disagree or strongly disagree. 332 (83%) guests responded. For non-invasive techniques, 32% of responders supported practice without consent, 74% with consent. Support diminished with increasing invasiveness of procedure. 91% of the sample were uncomfortable about the procedures, the commonest reason being 'respect for the body' (264/302). 86% of responders felt that practice should last for no more than 5 minutes. The most popular solutions were for people to carry a personal card giving consent (89%) and establishment of a central register of individuals consenting to be practised upon after death (79%).  (+info)

Survival after cardiac arrest or sustained ventricular tachycardia in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. (4/1070)

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate the survival of patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) after resuscitated ventricular fibrillation or syncopal sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT/VF) when treated with low dose amiodarone or implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs). BACKGROUND: Prospective data on clinical outcome in patients with HCM who survive a cardiac arrest are limited, but studies conducted before the widespread use of amiodarone and/or ICD therapy suggest that over a third die within seven years from sudden cardiac death or progressive heart failure. METHODS: Sixteen HCM patients with a history of VT/VF (nine male, age at VT/VF 19 +/- 8 years [range 10 to 36]) were studied. Syncopal sustained ventricular tachycardia/ventricular fibrillation occurred during or immediately after exertion in eight patients and was the initial presentation in eight. One patient had disabling neurologic deficit after VT/VF. Before VT/VF, two patients had angina, four had syncope and six had a family history of premature sudden cardiac death. After VT/VF all patients were in New York Heart Association class I or II, three had nonsustained VT during ambulatory electrocardiography and 11 had an abnormal exercise blood pressure response. After VT/VF eight patients were treated with low dose amiodarone and six received an ICD. Prophylactic therapy was declined by two patients. RESULTS: Mean follow-up was 6.1 +/- 4.0 years (range 0.5 to 14.5). Cumulative survival (death or ICD discharge) for the entire cohort was 59% at five years (95% confidence interval: 33% to 84%). Thirteen (81%) patients were alive at last follow-up. Two patients died suddenly while taking low dose amiodarone, and one died due to neurologic complications of his initial cardiac arrest. Three patients had one or more appropriate ICD discharges during follow-up; the times to first shock after ICD implantation were 23, 197 and 1,124 days. CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that patients with HCM who survive an episode of VT/VF remain at risk for a recurrent event. Implantable cardioverter defibrillator therapy appears to offer the best potential benefit regarding outcome.  (+info)

Outcome of very severe birth asphyxia. (5/1070)

The aim of this study was to establish the outcome of very severe birth asphyxia in a group of babies intensively resuscitated at birth. 48 infants, born between 1966 and 1971 inclusive, were selected; 15 were apparently stillborn and 33 had not established spontaneous respirations by 20 minutes after birth. One-half of them died, but 3 to 7 years later three-quarters of the survivors are apparently normal. Later handicap was associated with factors leading to prolonged partial intrapartum asphyxia, while acute periods of more complete asphyxia were not necessarily harmful.  (+info)

Systemic and microcirculatory effects of autologous whole blood resuscitation in severe hemorrhagic shock. (7/1070)

Systemic and microcirculatory effects of autologous whole blood resuscitation after 4-h hemorrhagic shock with a mean arterial pressure (MAP) level of 40 mmHg were investigated in 63 conscious Syrian golden hamsters. Microcirculation of skeletal skin muscle and subcutaneous connective tissue was visualized in a dorsal skinfold. Shed blood was retransfused within 30 min after 4 h. Animals were grouped into survivors in good (SG) and poor condition (SP) and nonsurvivors (NS) according to 24-h outcome after resuscitation and studied before shock, during shock (60, 120, and 240 min), and 30 min and 24 h after resuscitation. Microvascular and interstitial PO2 values were determined by phosphorescence decay. Shock caused a significant increase of arterial PO2 and decrease of PCO2, pH, and base excess. In the microcirculation, there was a significant decrease in blood flow (QB), functional capillary density (FCD; capillaries with red blood cell flow), and interstitial PO2 [1.8 +/- 0.8 mmHg (SG), 1.3 +/- 1.3 mmHg (SP), and 0.9 +/- 1.1 mmHg (NS) vs. 23.0 +/- 6.1 mmHg at control]. Blood resuscitation caused immediate MAP recompensation in all animals, whereas metabolic acidosis, hyperventilation, and a significant interstitial PO2 decrease (40-60% of control) persisted. In NS (44.4% of the animals), systemic and microcirculatory alterations were significantly more severe both in shock and after resuscitation than in survivors. Whereas in SG (31.8% of the animals) there was only a slight (15-30%) but still significant impairment of microscopic tissue perfusion (QB, FCD) and oxygenation at 24 h, SP (23.8% of the animals) showed severe metabolic acidosis and substantial decreases (>/=50%) of FCD and interstitial PO2. FCD, interstitial PO2, and metabolic state were the main determinants of shock outcome.  (+info)

Early experience with simulated trauma resuscitation. (8/1070)

Although trauma resuscitation is best taught through direct exposure with hands-on experience, the opportunities for this type of teaching in Canada are limited by the relatively low incidence of serious injury and the consolidation of trauma care to a small number of centres. Simulators have been used extensively outside the health care environment and more recently have been used by anesthetists to simulate intraoperative crises. In this paper early experience using a realistic mannequin, controlled by a remote computer, that simulates a variety of physiologic and injury specific variables is presented. The resource implications of simulated resuscitation are reviewed, including one-time and operating costs. Simulated trauma resuscitation may be an educational alternative to "real-life" trauma resuscitation, but careful evaluation of the benefits and resource implications of this type of teaching through well-designed research studies will be important.  (+info)

This course has been designed to teach an evidence-based approach to resuscitation of the newborn. The causes, prevention, and management of mild to severe neonatal asphyxia are carefully explained so that health professionals may develop optimal knowledge and skill in resuscitation.. The Neonatal Resuscitation Program is an educational program that introduces the concepts and basic skills of neonatal resuscitation. Completion of the program does not imply that an individual has the competence to perform neonatal resuscitation. Each hospital is responsible for determining the level of competence and qualifications required for someone to assume clinical responsibility for neonatal resuscitation.. Register Today. ...
Appropriate resuscitation must be available for each of the more than 4 million infants born annually in the United States. Ninety percent of infants transition safely, and it is up to the physician to assess risk factors, identify the nearly 10 percent of infants who need resuscitation, and respond appropriately. A team or persons trained in neonatal resuscitation should be promptly available to provide resuscitation. The Neonatal Resuscitation Program, which was initiated in 1987 to identify infants at risk of needing resuscitation and provide high-quality resuscitation, underwent major updates in 2006 and 2010. Among the most important changes are to not intervene with endotracheal suctioning in vigorous infants born through meconium-stained amniotic fluid (although endotracheal suctioning may be appropriate in nonvigorous infants); to provide positive pressure ventilation with one of three devices when necessary; to begin resuscitation of term infants using room air or blended oxygen; and to have a
Globally, about one quarter of all neonatal deaths are caused by birth asphyxia. In this document, birth asphyxia is defined simply as the failure to initiate and sustain breathing at birth. Effective resuscitation at birth can prevent a large proportion of these deaths. The need for clinical guidelines on basic newborn resuscitation, suitable for settings with limited resources, is universally recognized. WHO had responded to this need by developing guidelines for this purpose that are contained in the document Basic newborn resuscitation: a practical guide. As this document is over a decade old, a process to update the guidelines on basic newborn resuscitation was initiated in 2009. The objective of these updated WHO guidelines is to ensure that newborns in resource-limited settings who require resuscitation are effectively resuscitated. These guidelines will inform WHO training and reference materials, such as Pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum and newborn care: a guide for essential practice; ...
The International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation uses the Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) working group method to evaluate the quality of evidence and the strength of treatment recommendations. This method requires guideline developers to use a numerical rating of the importance of each specified outcome. There are currently no uniform reporting guidelines or outcome measures for neonatal resuscitation science. We describe consensus outcome ratings from a survey of 64 neonatal resuscitation guideline developers representing seven international resuscitation councils. Among 25 specified outcomes, 10 were considered critical for decision-making. The five most critically rated outcomes were death, moderate-severe neurodevelopmental impairment, blindness, cerebral palsy and deafness. These data inform outcome rankings for systematic reviews of neonatal resuscitation science and international guideline development using the GRADE methodology. ...

Specific Aim: To determine if prehospital administration of 7.5% hypertonic saline /6% Dextran-70 (HSD) OR 7.5% hypertonic saline alone (HS), compared to current standard therapy with normal saline (NS), as an initial resuscitation fluid, affects survival following traumatic injury with hypovolemic shock.. Trauma is the leading cause of death among North Americans between the ages of 1 and 44 years. The majority of these deaths result from hypovolemic shock or severe brain injury. Patients in hypovolemic shock develop a state of systemic tissue ischemia then a subsequent reperfusion injury at the time of fluid resuscitation. Conventional resuscitation involves the IV administration of a large volume of isotonic or slightly hypotonic (lactated ringers, LR) solutions beginning in the prehospital setting. Although not conclusive, prior studies have suggested that alternative resuscitation with hypertonic saline (7.5%) solutions may reduce morbidity or mortality in these patients. Furthermore, ...
Around 10% of newborns will require some form of assistance after delivery, with babies born more prematurely more likely to require resuscitation. Current UK guidelines advise initial resuscitation with the delivery of five inflation breaths lasting 2-3 seconds with peak inflation pressure of 30cmH2O (20-25cm H2O in premature neonates). Previous studies have shown that despite resuscitation training, clinicians in both simulated and real resuscitation scenarios do not deliver the recommended duration of inflation breaths. This, combined with leaks around the facemask often being as large as 50% or greater, contributes to low expired tidal volumes during resuscitation, thus increasing the likelihood of hypoxia and delay in establishing effective respiration.. The use of sustained inflations (up to 15 seconds), rather than intermittent shorter inflation breaths, has shown promising results, with reduction in the need for intubation, and the need for and duration of mechanical ventilation. ...
Introduction: Fetal hypoxia from intrapartum events can lead to absent heart rate (HR) or bradycardia (BC) at birth requiring neonatal resuscitation. Neonatal resuscitation guidelines do not differentiate infants with BC (HR,100/min) from absent HR at birth;. Hypothesis: As HR is the primary determinant of resuscitation, we hypothesize that infants with no HR at 1min [determined by Apgar score (AS) of 0 @ 1min] would require more extensive resuscitation with worse clinical outcomes compared to infants with BC at 1min (determined by AS=1 @ 1 min).. Methods: A retrospective analysis was done on infants born from 1/1/00 - 12/31/15 with AS of 0 (ASZ grp) or AS of 1 (ASN grp) at 1min. Patient demographics, resuscitation characteristics & clinical outcomes were analyzed in both the groups. Descriptive statistics & logistic procedure was performed (SAS System, Cary, NC)..

N2 - Birth asphyxia accounts for nearly one million deaths worldwide each year, and is one of the primary causes of early neonatal morbidity and mortality. Many aspects of the current neonatal resuscitation guidelines remain controversial given the difficulties in conducting randomized clinical trials owing to the infrequent and often unpredictable need for extensive resuscitation. Most studies on neonatal resuscitation stem from manikin models that fail to truly reflect physiologic changes or piglet models that have cleared their lung fluid and that have completed the transition from fetal to neonatal circulation. The present protocol provides a detailed step-by-step ...
by Sharon Jordan, Labour Ward Co-ordinator, North Bristol Trust.. I have been training midwives, obstetricians and anaesthetists in Neonatal Resuscitation for the last 11 years, and it is rewarding to see how confidence grows in a skill that is not practiced frequently. As Labour Ward Co-ordinator you are often first on the scene to answer an emergency bell and initiate resuscitation of a compromised baby, but midwives only really gain practice in this area if the baby they deliver themselves is sick, and even then, may hand over the resuscitation to the help that has arrived, as they need to attend to the womans care, usually to manage the third stage of labour. In the training sessions, role-play is used but the resuscitation is not carried out in real time. This enables the midwives to develop a deeper understanding of the physiological process in each step of the resuscitation. There is always an initial hesitation when a volunteer is requested to step forward to show how they would ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Lactate as a hemodynamic marker in the critically ill. AU - Fuller, Brian M.. AU - Dellinger, R. Phillip. PY - 2012/6. Y1 - 2012/6. N2 - Purpose of review: An early quantitative resuscitation strategy improves outcome in critically ill patients. The hemodynamic endpoints of such a strategy have been a topic of debate in the literature. This review focuses on the use of lactate as a marker for risk stratification, lactate clearance as a hemodynamic endpoint, and its use compared to mixed venous oxygenation as a resuscitation goal. Recent findings: Lactate clearance is associated with improved outcome across several cohorts of critically ill patients. Lactate levels and central venous oxygen saturations are frequently discordant. Targeting lactate clearance as part of a quantitative resuscitation strategy may be as effective as targeting central venous oxygen saturation. Summary: Resuscitation of the critically ill patient should be aimed at the reversal of tissue hypoxia. The use ...

AU - Henning, Robert H. AU - Bouma, Hjalmar R. PY - 2019/7/10. Y1 - 2019/7/10. N2 - Recent Advances: Mitochondrial dysfunction is emerging as a key process in the induction of organ dysfunction during sepsis, and metabolic resuscitation might reveal to be a novel cornerstone in the treatment of sepsis. Critical Issues: Here, we review novel strategies to maintain organ function in sepsis by precluding mitochondrial dysfunction by lowering energetic demand to allow preservation of adenosine triphosphate-levels, while reducing free radical generation. As the most common strategy to suppress metabolism, that is, cooling, does not reveal unequivocal beneficial effects and may even increase mortality, caloric restriction or modulation of energy-sensing pathways (i.e., sirtuins and AMP-activated protein kinase) may ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Role of albumin, starches and gelatins versus crystalloids in volume resuscitation of critically ill patients. AU - Zazzeron, Luca. AU - Gattinoni, Luciano. AU - Caironi, Pietro. PY - 2016. Y1 - 2016. N2 - PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The review focuses on fluid resuscitation of critically ill patients with either colloid or crystalloid solutions. RECENT FINDINGS: In healthy patients, the volume expanding effect of colloids is greater than that of crystalloids. However, in critically ill patients, a similar amount of crystalloids and colloids is required for fluid resuscitation, suggesting a lower efficiency of colloids when capillary permeability is increased, and endothelial glycocalyx disrupted. Recent studies on synthetic colloids in surgical patients confirmed the increased risk of renal failure reported in large clinical trials performed in critically ill patients. Experimental studies suggest that albumin maintains plasma volume expansion efficiency even when the capillary ...

Venous-to-arterial carbon dioxide difference (Pv-aCO2) may reflect the adequacy of blood flow during shock states. We sought to test whether the development of Pv-aCO2 during the very early phases of resuscitation is related to multi-organ dysfunction and outcomes in a population of septic shock patients resuscitated targeting the usual oxygen-derived and hemodynamic parameters. We conducted a prospective observational study in a 60-bed mixed ICU in a University affiliated Hospital. 85 patients with a new septic shock episode were included. A Pv-aCO2 value ≥ 6 mmHg was considered to be high. Patients were classified in four predefined groups according to the Pv-aCO2 evolution during the first 6 hours of resuscitation: (1) persistently high Pv-aCO2 (high at T0 and T6); (2) increasing Pv-aCO2 (normal at T0, high at T6); (3) decreasing Pv-aCO2 (high at T0, normal at T6); and (4) persistently normal Pv-aCO2 (normal at T0 and T6). Multiorgan dysfunction at day-3 was compared for predefined groups and a
BACKGROUND: Competence in neonatal resuscitation, which represents the most urgent pediatric clinical situation, is critical in delivery rooms to ensure safety and health of newly born infants. The challenges experienced by health care providers during this procedure are unique due to different causes of cardio respiratory arrest. This study aimed at assessing the knowledge of health providers on neonatal resuscitation. METHODS: Data were gathered among 192 health providers drawn from all counties of Kenya. The clinicians were asked to complete questionnaires which were in two parts as; demographic information and assessment of their knowledge by different scenarios which were formatted in the multiple choice questions. Data were analyzed using SPSS version 15.0 for windows. The results are presented using tables. RESULTS: All the participants were aged 23 years and above with at least a certificate training. Most medical providers had heard of neonatal resuscitation (85.4%) with only 23 receiving
For patients who are already suffering unmanageable pain or face diminished quality of life, the pain and recovery of resuscitation may not be worth the suffering. Even elderly clients in good heath may choose to decline resuscitation out of concerns that, even if successful, the changes of their being on extended life support or living in a nursing home with major neurological damage is inconsistent with their choices about end of life. In such cases resuscitation may also be hard on the patients families as well. Declining resuscitation can be honestly thought of as letting the patient die a natural death without in anyway being the cause of it. Once resuscitation is performed and the patient is on life support machines and there is not open of their living without them, the family must make the choice to affirmatively end treatment which often feels very different ...

At the 2013 Academic Emergency Medicine global health consensus conference, a breakout session to develop a research agenda for resuscitation was held. Two articles are the result of that discussion. This second article addresses data collection, management, and analysis and regionalization of postresuscitation care, resuscitation programs, and research examples around the world and proposes a strategy to strengthen resuscitation research globally. There is a need for reliable global statistics on resuscitation, international standardization of data, and development of an electronic standard for reporting data. Regionalization of postresuscitation care is a priority area for future research. Large resuscitation clinical research networks are feasible and can give valuable data for improvement of service and outcomes. Low-cost models of population-based research, and emphasis on interventional and implementation studies that assess the clinical effects of programs and interventions, are needed to ...
After failure of external defibrillation, return of cardiac activity with spontaneous circulation is contingent on rapid and effective reversal of myocardial ischemia. Closed-chest cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) evolved about 30 years ago and was almost universally implemented by both professional providers and lay bystanders because of its technical simplicity and noninvasiveness. However, there is growing concern since the limited hemodynamic efficacy of precordial compression accounts for a disappointingly low success rate; especially so if there is a delay of more than 3 minutes before resuscitation is started. There is also increasing concern with the lack of objective hemodynamic measurements currently available for the assessment and quantitation of the effectiveness of resuscitation efforts. Accordingly, the resuscitation procedure proceeds without confirmation that it increases systemic and myocardial blood flows to levels that would be likely to restore spontaneous circulation.

Responses were received from 439 hospitals (Table) with the same distribution of volume and teaching status as the sample population (p = 0.50). Resuscitation committees were more common in both teaching and higher volume hospitals, and when present, were chaired most commonly by pulmonary/critical care (29%) or emergency medicine (26%) clinicians. Hospitalists chaired 9% of the committees. Hospitals were more likely to routinely review cardiac arrest data, if they had a resuscitation committee (78.0% vs 49.3%; P , 0.001) or dedicated staff time for resuscitation (78.8% vs 58.4%, P , 0.001). These results were independent of teaching status and volume, the latter of which (intermediate or high volume) was an independent predictor for both having dedicated staff time and tracking resuscitations. Eighty nine percent of respondents reported that there was room for improvement in resuscitation practice at their institution and 77% reported at least one barrier to quality, of which lack of a ...

Making a choice: initial fraction of inspired oxygen for resuscitation at birth of a premature infant less than 32 weeks gestational age Gregory P Moore,1-3 Behdad Navabi2 1Department of Pediatrics, Division of Neonatology, Childrens Hospital of Eastern Ontario, 2Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Division of Newborn Care, The Ottawa Hospital General Campus, 3Department of Pediatrics, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, ON, CanadaAs briefly noted by Abdel-Hady and Nasef in their 2012 publication in Research and Reports in Neonatology,1 the best initial fraction of inspired oxygen (FiO2) to use during resuscitation of preterm neonates |32 weeks gestational age (GA) has not been clearly elucidated. Most recent neonatal resuscitation guidelines leave the difficult choice of the actual FiO2 in the hands of individual physicians. We believe that this letter, through review and discussion of the recent published literature, will aid physicians in this choice and confirm that, as per the opinion of Abdel-Hady
Background: Nowadays, families expect that they should participate in their own care and decision in health care management. Traditionally, resuscitation is done by health care personnel where family members are excluded from witnessing of this procedure. However, in the last few decades, this idea has been changed into an offering support by allowing family members to be present during resuscitation. The presence of the family members during resuscitation remain controversial. Therefore, there is needed to analysis and argue that some opinions which are associated with the effects of family allowance during resuscitation. Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to discuss the current evidence that the systematic offering of family presence during resuscitation (FPDR) is an ethically sound practice, with minimal demonstrable harms to patients and family members. Methods: By reviewing the related data sources of family presence during resuscitation(FPDR), extensive review of the opinion of family ...

OBJECTIVE--To determine the circumstances, incidence, and outcome of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in British hospitals. DESIGN--Hospitals registered all cardiopulmonary resuscitation attempts for 12 months or longer and followed survival to one year. SETTING--12 metropolitan, provincial, teaching, and non-teaching hospitals across Britain. SUBJECTS--3765 patients in whom a resuscitation attempt was performed, including 927 in whom the onset of arrest was outside the hospital. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE--Survival after initial resuscitation, at 24 hours, at discharge from hospital, and at one year, calculated by the life table method. RESULTS--There were 417 known survivors at one year, with 214 lost to follow up. By life table analysis for every eight attempted resuscitations there were three immediate survivors, two at 24 hours, 1.5 leaving hospital alive, and one alive at one year. Survival at one year was 12.5% including out of hospital cases and 15.0% not including these cases. Each hospital year ...
Administration of large volumes of fluid deficient in platelets and clotting factors will predictably lead to the development of a coagulopathy as a consequence of dilution. There has been much research into whether patients first become deficient in platelets of clotting factors during massive volume resuscitation. In the end, this question is not likely to be important. What is important is that after massive volume resuscitation, whether it be with PRBCs, crystalloid or colloid, your patient is likely to be thrombocytopenic and or deficient in clotting factors.. Most of the clotting factors are stable in stored blood except for factors V and VIII. These tend to decrease by up to 50% after 21 days of blood storage. PRBCs have fewer of all the clotting factors.. Total platelet activity is only 50% to 70% of the original in vivo activity after 6 hours of storage in bank blood at 4°C. After 24 or 48 hours of storage, platelet activity is only about 10% or 5% of normal, respectively. Infusion of ...

Quality CPR, Optimal Resuscitation. Cardiovascular disease is the single greatest cause of death in the United States. Each year, upwards of a quarter of a million persons receive attempted resuscitation from cardiac arrest by Emergency Medical Services (EMS). The prognosis for the majority of these arrests remains poor.. Quality CPR is a means to improving survival from cardiac arrest. Scientific studies demonstrate when CPR is performed according to guidelines, the chances of successful resuscitation increase substantially. Minimal breaks in compressions, full chest recoil, adequate compression depth, and adequate compression rate are all components of CPR that can increase survival from cardiac arrest.. In order to have effective HP CPR ALL involved must work as a team, not as separate entities.. The Kitsap Resuscitation is about one unified team with one unified goal - Optimal Resuscitation!. ...

Abstract:. Background: Hypertensive disorders in pregnancy (HDP) are the common cause of maternal, fetal and neonatal morbidity and mortality world over. Recent global estimates reported that their incidence is on decline, but in developing countries like India they rank second only to anemia. Objectives: Study the incidence of Hypertensive disorders in pregnancy and requirement of immediate postnatal resuscitation and outcome in babies born to these mothers. Materials and methods: Design: Cross sectional study. Setting: Tertiary care teaching hospital. Patients and methods: 778 neonates with maternal history of hypertensive disorders in pregnancy formed the study group and equal numbers of babies born to normotensive mothers were taken as controls. Relevant maternal and neonatal data was recorded in a structured proforma. Number of neonates who required resuscitation were identified and resuscitated as per neonatal resuscitation protocol by American Heart Association. Type of resuscitation ...

The meta-analysis by Schierhout and Roberts addresses the long-standing debate about colloids compared with crystalloids for fluid resuscitation. Strong features of the review include the comprehensive search strategy, evaluation of publication bias, critical appraisal of the primary studies, and exploration of heterogeneity of results using methodologic quality and patient characteristics. Different colloids (blood products, synthetic starches, dextrans, and gelatins) were compared with various crystalloids (isotonic and hypertonic solutions). Similar to previous meta-analyses (1, 2), this study detected no difference in mortality, despite pooling data from , 1300 patients from 19 trials. These findings do not suggest that fluid choice for resuscitation is unimportant. However, it is plausible that such factors as comorbid conditions, acute illness severity, and iatrogenic complications have a greater influence on mortality than does the choice of resuscitative fluid. Selection of crystalloids ...
The need for effective team leadership is probably one of the most important aspects of running a successful medical, trauma, & cardiac arrest resuscitation. The primary literature is littered with research aimed at describing effective leadership strategies during high-quality resuscitation teams. But at the end of the day, the key word here is… team.. Now I have to say, the ResCCU nurses, techs, and physicians are by far some of the most talented clinicians Ive ever worked along side. Our debriefings often highlight minor details that we all recognize collectively are important - but in general our teams work together very effectively. But in an effort to constantly be improving, this past year we regularly collected team feedback after acute medical resuscitations, and one common theme arose from the discussions - members frequently cited an inadequate understanding of their role during the resuscitation.. As a result, last month, our ResCCU reinvigorated our approach to team resuscitation ...

Background. Resuscitation of patients occurs daily in emergency departments. Traditional practice entails family members remaining outside the resuscitation room. Objective. We explored the introduction of family-witnessed resuscitation (FWR) as it has been shown to allow closure for the family when resuscitation is unsuccessful and helps them to better understand the last moments of life. Results. Attending medical doctors have concerns about this practice, such as traumatisation of family members, increased pressure on the medical team, interference by the family, and potential medico-legal consequences. There was not complete acceptance of the practice of FWR among the sample group. Conclusion. Short-course training such as postgraduate advanced life support and other continued professional development activities should have a positive effect on this practice. The more experienced doctors are and the longer they work in emergency medicine, the more comfortable they appear to be with the concept of

Anesthetized swine were instrumented with a gastric near-infrared spectroscopy probe (GStO2), a jejunal tonometer (PrCO2), a portal vein catheter (SpvO2, lactate), and an ultrasonic blood flow probe on the superior mesenteric artery. The liver was lacerated to produce uncontrolled hemorrhage and a shock state characterized by a 40-60% decrease in cardiac output and a decrease in mean arterial pressure (MAP) to 42 +/- 1 mmHg. Animals were randomly assigned to either delayed resuscitation (n = 6); hypotensive ...
Despite less prior experience with the Broselow color-coded resuscitation cart, the pediatric health care providers in our study found it easier to use and preferred it over the standard resuscitation cart. In addition, the subjects retrieved intubation equipment, nasogastric tubes, and suction catheters faster from the Broselow cart and provided the resuscitation leader with the appropriately sized equipment 99% of the time. These data suggest that sites caring for pediatric patients should consider modeling their resuscitation equipment carts on the Broselow color-coded system to improve the response time of health care providers in pediatric arrest situations.. The Broselow color-coded resuscitation cart has intuitive advantages over the historically used, intervention-based standard resuscitation cart. In the field of pediatrics in which medication dosing and equipment size is determined by patient size, it seems logical that medications and equipment in a pediatric resuscitation cart also ...

Methods. A retrospective review of a resuscitation registry between January 1999 and June 2001 was conducted. Results. Of 37 972 infants, 23 received CPR, including 13 with VI. Ten of 13 received VI for persistent bradycardia despite CPR, and only 3 of 13 received VI for suspicion of hypovolemia with poor perfusion. More VI versus no VI infants had Apgar scores ≤2 at 5 and 10 minutes. VI versus no VI infants had lower cord arterial pH, had higher ...

N2 - Hemorrhagic shock (HS) is associated with low blood pressure due to excessive loss of circulating blood and causes both macrocirculatory and microcirculatory dysfunction. Fluid resuscitation after HS is used in the clinic to restore tissue perfusion. The persistent microcirculatory damage caused by HS and/or resuscitation can result in multiple organ damage, with the kidney being one of the involved organs. The kidney microvasculature consists of different segments that possess a remarkable heterogeneity in functional properties. The aim of this study was to investigate the inflammatory responses of these different renal microvascular segments, i.e., ...

Using an uncontrolled hemorrhagic shock rat model, we compared the resuscitative effects of infusion of LR solution, 6% HES130, LR + 6% HES130 (2:1), or LR+ whole blood to a target pressure of 50 (underresuscitation), 70 (mildly hypotensive resuscitation), and 90 (normotensive- resuscitation) mmHg after bleeding had stopped. The results showed that resuscitation at a target pressure of 50 mmHg, irrespective of whatever solution was used, did not maintain hemodynamic stability and did not maintain sufficient perfusion of tissue. A target resuscitation pressure maintained at 70 mmHg with LR solution, 6% HES130, LR + 6% HES130, or whole blood could better maintain hemodynamic stability and prolong the survival time than a target resuscitation pressure maintained at 50 and 90 mmHg. LR + 6% HES130 and whole blood had a better effect than LR solution and HES alone. LR+whole blood at 70 mmHg had the best effect. Resuscitation at a target pressure of 90 mmHg did not further improve the resuscitative ...

Poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP-1) over-activation may lead to depletion of NAD+ and ATP within the cell and proceed to necrotic cell death. Recently, published reports demonstrate high levels of PARP-1 activity in a model of porcine hemorrhagic shock. There is also increased interest in hypotensive resuscitation used for battlefield-wounded soldiers and trauma patients. We wished to evaluate PARP-1 activity during a model of porcine hemorrhagic shock with the hypothesis that PARP-1 activity will be increased using a hypotensive resuscitation strategy. ...
Explosion is responsible for almost 80% of Coalition injuries in todays conflicts. Haemorrhage is the leading cause of death and blast lung injury is evident in 11% of Coalition casualties surviving to reach the (UK) Field Hospital. Military prehospital evacuation times can be prolonged and the combined insults of haemorrhage and blast injury present a double hit to oxygen delivery. Resuscitation strategies must be capable of preserving life from such trauma for several hours. Alongside fluid therapy, adjuncts to resuscitation might improve battlefield survival. This randomized controlled animal trial assessed two adjuncts: supplemental inspired oxygen and recombinant activated Factor VII (rFVIIa). Neither adjunct is currently available in the far-forward military echelon, but with modern technology, both are potentially deployable. 18 terminally anaesthetized swine were exposed to blast, controlled haemorrhage and grade IV liver laceration (uncontrolled haemorrhage). Animals were allocated ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Small-volume resuscitation using hypertonic saline improves organ perfusion in burned rats. AU - Kien, Nguyen D.. AU - Antognini, Joseph F.. AU - Reilly, Debra A.. AU - Moore, Peter G.. PY - 1996. Y1 - 1996. N2 - Resuscitation using small volumes (3-5 mL/kg) of 7.5% hypertonic saline (HTS) is effective for hemorrhagic shock. Whether HTS is beneficial for the initial resuscitation of burn injury is not clear. We compared the hemodynamic effects of HTS versus lactated Ringers solution (LR) and examined organ tissue perfusion during burn resuscitation (R). Full thickness scald burn (35% of total body surface area) was induced in pentobarbital- anesthetized rats. Regional blood flows were measured using radioactive microspheres before and 30 min after burn, and after R with either HTS (4 mL/kg) or LR (at a dose required for equivalent restoration of arterial blood pressure). Data from the HTS-or LR-resuscitated groups were compared to those from a nonresuscitated group (n = 10 in ...
In a system and a method of testing a person in the performance of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and for evaluating training exercises therein, a training device simulating a patient includes sensors for detecting various resuscitation procedures performed thereon. Parameter signals from the sensors are fed to a computer including a series of counters, a timing means and various memories, for analyzing the parameter signals and assessing whether the corresponding operations have been correctly or incorrectly performed. The values processed by the computer are then displayed on a display providing a clear moving representation of the procedures performed on the training device, the representation taking place in real time on the basis of corresponding signals from the timing means, whereby, by viewing the display, the trainee operator can directly check and if appropriate correct the resuscitation procedures he is performing. The display can display the whole of the cardiopulmonary resuscitation

This brief update reviews the recent literature available on fluid resuscitation from hemorrhagic shock and considers the applicability of this evidence for use in resuscitation of combat casualties in the combat casualty care (CCC) environment. A number of changes need to be incorporated in the CCC guidelines: (1) dried plasma (DP) is added as an option when other blood components or whole blood are not available; (2) the wording is clarified to emphasize that Hetastarch is a less desirable option than whole blood, blood components, or DP and should be used only when these preferred options are not available; (3) the use of blood products in certain tactical field care settings where this option might be feasible (FSC, GH) is discussed; (4) 1:1:1 damage control resuscitation (DCR) with plasma: packed red blood cells (PRBC): platelets is preferred to 1:1 DCR with plasma: PRBC when platelets are available; and (5) the 30-min wait between increments of resuscitation fluid administered to achieve clinical

Objective: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique useful in the prevention of death or delaying it in a person with cardiac arrest. In this regard, demographic information about patients who need CPR is vital. Methods: In this cross-sectional study patients with cardiopulmonary arrest or arrhythmias admitted to Imam Reza and Sina educational hospitals of Tabriz University of Medical Sciences from 22 December 2013 to 21 December 2014 entered the study. Demographic information such as age, sex, cardiopulmonary resuscitation time, the place of cardiopulmonary arrest (outside or inside the hospital), the duration of resuscitation process, success or failure of the resuscitation process and the mechanism of cardiopulmonary arrest were obtained. Results: From a total of 354 cases of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, 281 cases (79%) were unsuccessful and 73 cases (21%) were successful. The average age of patients was 59 ± 22 years. The average time of the resuscitation process was 31 ± 12
Background-Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) claims millions of lives worldwide each year. OHCA survival from shockable arrhythmias (ventricular fibrillation/tachycardia) improved in several communities after implementing American Heart Association resuscitation guidelines that eliminated stacked shocks and emphasized chest compressions. Non-shockable rhythms are now the predominant presentation of OHCA, upon which the benefit of such treatments is uncertain. Methods and Results-We studied 3960 patients with nontraumatic OHCA from non-shockable initial rhythms treated by pre-hospital providers in King County, WA over a 10 year period. Outcomes during a 5 year intervention period after adoption of new resuscitation guidelines were compared to the previous 5 year historical control period. The primary outcome was 1-year survival. Patient demographics and resuscitation characteristics were similar between control (n=1774) and intervention (n=2186) groups, among whom 471/1774 (27%) versus ...
Patients with burn shock can be challenging to resuscitate. Burn shock produces a variety of physiologic derangements: Patients are hypovolemic from volume loss, have a increased systemic vascular resistance, and may have a depressed cardiac output depending on the extent of the thermal injury. Additionally, the burn wound produces a significant inflammatory cascade of events that contributes to the shock state. Fluid resuscitation is foundational for the initial treatment of burn shock. Typical resuscitation is with intravenous lactated Ringers in accordance with well-established formulas based on burn wound size. In the past century, as therapies to treat thermal injuries were being developed, plasma was the fluid used for burn resuscitation; in fact, plasma was used in World War II and throughout the 1950s and 1960s. Plasma was abandoned because of infectious risks and complications. Despite huge strides in transfusion medicine and the increased safety of blood products, plasma has never ...
© 2016 Haemorrhagic and severe hypovolaemic shock can be rapidly fatal unless identified and resuscitated quickly. Monitoring of haemodynamic and cellular end points is crucial in guiding treatment and improving outcomes. This review therefore focuses on the pathophysiology of hypovolaemic shock, volume resuscitation, haemostasis and approaches to management. Fluid resuscitation saves lives but considerable debate remains regarding the ideal fluid type and strategy to use. Blood transfusion is also a critical therapy in the shocked, bleeding patient with a lower threshold for transfusion being appropriate in the elderly patient with less physiological reserve. Reversal of anticoagulant medications and the administration of coagulation products should support both fluid and red cell therapy to counteract the multifactorial coagulopathy that can accompany severe trauma, haemorrhage and shock. The aim is to stabilize the patient such that any interventional strategies (both percutaneous and surgical) can
The most relevant results of this small phase II trial include (A) time to spontaneous breathing and total ventilation time were significantly shorter in the LMA arm than in FM arm; (B) almost half (44%) of the neonates who did not respond to FMV were successfully rescued with the LMA; (C) use of neonatal LMA was safe, even in the hands of inexperienced health staff.. A few observational studies and RCTs have evaluated the use of cuffed laryngeal masks during neonatal resuscitation and have unanimously concluded that laryngeal mask allowed effective PPV in most of the treated patients (range 95%-99%).11 13 14 One quasirandomised study showed that successful resuscitation with the laryngeal mask was significantly higher, and the total ventilation time with the laryngeal mask was significantly shorter than with FMV. The authors concluded: the laryngeal mask is safe, effective and easy to implement for the resuscitation of neonates with a gestational age of 34 or more weeks.15 Another recent ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Hydrogen inhalation protects against acute lung injury induced by hemorrhagic shock and resuscitation. AU - Kohama, Keisuke. AU - Yamashita, Hayato. AU - Aoyama-Ishikawa, Michiko. AU - Takahashi, Toru. AU - Billiar, Timothy R.. AU - Nishimura, Takeshi. AU - Kotani, Joji. AU - Nakao, Atsunori. PY - 2015/8/1. Y1 - 2015/8/1. N2 - Introduction Hemorrhagic shock followed by fluid resuscitation (HS/R) triggers an inflammatory response and causes pulmonary inflammation that can lead to acute lung injury (ALI). Hydrogen, a therapeutic gas, has potent cytoprotective, antiinflammatory, and antioxidant effects. This study examined the effects of inhaled hydrogen on ALI caused by HS/R. Methods Rats were subjected to hemorrhagic shock by withdrawing blood to lower blood pressure followed by resuscitation with shed blood and saline to restore blood pressure. After HS/R, the rats were maintained in a control gas of similar composition to room air or exposed to 1.3% hydrogen. Results HS/R ...
