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)..

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

We performed computer-controlled closed-loop resuscitation using invasive cardiac output (CO) or noninvasive skeletal muscle oxygen saturation (SkMusSO2) via near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS). Methods: Conscious sheep received a 4.0-mm aortotomy and uncontrolled hemorrhage at t = 0 min (TO) while resuscitation started at T20 using lactated Ring. ers solution. Results: The aortotomy rapidly decreased the mean arterial pressure (MAP) to approximately 30 mm Hg and CO to 20% to 30% of baseline. The SkMusSO2 endpoint group required only half as much fluid through 4 hours of resuscitation as the CO endpoint group (34.9 ± 8.4 ...
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
Since the 1980s, significant advancements have been made in pediatric resuscitation training in the United States. In 1988, the American Heart Association (AHA) offered the first course in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS).
When a cardiac arrest occurs it is vital that bystanders act immediately. As a minimum bystanders should be able to check consciousness, call 112 and perform chest compression of sufficient depth and speed until an ambulance or other professional support arrives. The majority of people however do not have these skills. Courses in Basic Life Support are available in all European countries on average 2 hour including a practice session. Research shows (1) these courses are effective and both immediate and short-term (4-6 months) retention is high. These courses are however a too time-consuming and costly option when our aim is to train the vast majority of people and maintain their skill level. In this presentation we present a minimal online resuscitation training ...

Resuscitation of the critically ill trauma patient involves a myriad of high-stakes, time-sensitive management decisions. The landscape is shifting rapidly: new evidence on hemostatic resuscitation and component therapy in hemorrhagic shock, peri-arrest point-of-care ultrasound, novel approaches to resuscitative thoracotomy and trauma RSI have at once clarified and muddied the waters. In this rapid-fire, case-based session, Petro and Hicks will debate some of the recent and potentially practice changing literature to assist with key inflection points in the care of the sickest -- and sometimes deadest -- trauma patients, and engage in some trauma dogmalysis in the process.. ...

The 2015 Surviving Sepsis Campaign Bundle. We all know the rules for sepsis resuscitation - fluids, early antibiotics, MAP , 65, lactate normalization, culture every orafice you can find, etc. But its important to remember that ticking the boxes does not translate to adequate resuscitation and high quality patient care. But how did a patient whos management seemed so straightforward turn out to be a set-up for disaster left on the medical ward?. One of the most important concepts that is often left out of the commonly quoted early antibiotics mantra is appropriate antibiotic therapy.

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. ...

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 resuscitation room guide is designed to be a portable, accessible, and practical guide to the various conditions that present in the resuscitation room. It covers their recognition, assessment and management, and the equipment and investigative procedures used.
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 ...
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.

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 ...
The International Guidelines 2000 Conference on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Emergency Cardiac Care (ECC) formulated new evidenced-based recommendations for neonatal resuscitation. These guidelines comprehensively update the last recommendations, published in 1992 after the Fifth National Conference on CPR and ECC. As a result of the evidence evaluation process, significant changes occurred in the recommended management routines for: * Meconium-stained amniotic fluid: If the newly born infant has absent or depressed respirations, heart rate ...

In all of the CICM past exams, the topic of haemostatic resuscitation has only come up once, as part (b) of Question 20 from the first paper of 2011. The main message is the management of the lethal triad - correction of hypothermia, acidosis and coagulopathy. At the same time, it is important to limit the total amount of infused crystalloid, so as to avoid excessive organ oedema.

A convenience sample of cardiac arrest patients prospectively underwent bedside cardiac sonography at 4 emergency medicine residency-affiliated EDs as part of the Sonography Outcomes Assessment Program. Cardiac arrest patients in pulseless electrical activity (PEA) and asystole underwent transthoracic cardiac ultrasound B-mode examinations during their resuscitations to assess for the presence or absence of cardiac kinetic activity. Several end points were analyzed as potential predictors of resuscitations: presenting ...
Perfusion-related variables exhibit markedly different normalization rates in septic shock survivors, most of them exhibiting a biphasic response with an initial rapid improvement, followed by a much slower trend thereafter. This fact should be taken into account to determine the most appropriate criteria to stop resuscitation opportunely and avoid the risk of over-resuscitation.. Central venous oxygen saturation, P(cv-a) CO2, and CRT values were already normal in the majority of patients at ICU admission after some previous volume loading, and it appears that these variables are particularly responsive to DO2 increasing maneuvers. In a previous study, ScvO2, increased from 49% to 77% in septic shock patients subjected to early aggressive DO2 optimization [3]. The sensitivity of ScvO2 to pre-ICU fluid loading probably explains the almost negligible incidence of low ScvO2 values in the ICU setting [25],[26]. CRT may also improve rapidly after fluid resuscitation, and we found that normality of ...
Swift and adequate fluid loading is a cornerstone of septic shock therapy. Yet, careful assessment of volume responsiveness and volume amount during the resuscitation process is a prerequisite. Both overzealous initial fluid administration and late fluid overload are harmful and may be associated with increased mortality. Static (i.e., central venous or pulmonary artery occlusion) pressure readings are erroneous for monitoring fluid resuscitation and should be abandoned. Dynamic measurements (i.e., stroke volume and pulse pressure variation) better predict fluid responsiveness than static filling pressures but the conditions necessary for these parameters to correctly evaluate preload dependency are frequently not met. The passive leg raising maneuver as a means to alter biventricular preload in combination with real-time measurement of cardiac output changes is an easy-to-use, fast, relatively unbiased, and accurate bedside test to guide fluid management and to avoid fluid overload during early septic
Resuscitation Council UK recognises the importance of diversity, both in our organisation and in wider society. We understand the value of encouraging and championing diversity among the people involved with our organisation, all of whom bring with them a diversity of thinking, perspective and insight.. It is this diversity and inclusion that will help us to further our core mission of ensuring appropriate resuscitation for all. In 2020, Resuscitation Council UK developed a diversity and inclusion policy. We have committed to a series of actions that will ensure diversity and inclusion is at the forefront of how we operate.. Our board of Trustees have committed to an ambition that by 2025, a quarter of people serving as Trustees - and on the Executive Committee, Subcommittees and Working Groups - should be women, and that by 2030, those in all staff and voluntary roles, and those who engage with our training and services, should reflect the diversity of the wider clinical and care professions ...
Controversy: whether or not aggressive fluid resuscitation is beneficial in the setting of hypotensive trauma. Hypovolemic trauma patients do reliably respond to volume infusion, thus in the past ATLS recommended administration of 2L IVF as rapidly as possible. This recommendation has recently been questioned, as the downsides of dilutional anemia in the trauma setting (namely decreased O2 delivery, hypothermia, coagulopathies, and electrolyte abnormalities) and hypertension in the setting of hemorrhage (increased bleeding) the have come to light. Aggressive fluid administration often leads to a transient rise in BP which leads to increased bleeding and another episode of hypotension, producing a vicious cycle. For this reason, resuscitation has been divided into two phases: early (during active hemorrhage) and late (when hemorrhage has been controlled)..

N2 - OBJECTIVE: To determine the rates of immediate survival and survival to discharge for adult patients undergoing in-hospital cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and to identify demographic and clinical variables associated with these outcomes. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: The MEDLARS database of the National Library of Medicine was searched. In addition, the authors extensive personal files and the bibliography of each identified study were searched for further studies. Two sets of inclusion criteria were used, minimal (any study of adults undergoing in-hospital cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and strict (included only patients from general ward and intensive care units, and adequately defined cardiopulmonary arrest and resuscitation). Each study was independently reviewed and abstracted in a ...
Traumatic injury is a common problem, with over five million worldwide deaths from trauma per year. An estimated 10 to 20% of these deaths are potentially preventable with better control of bleeding. Damage control resuscitation involves early delivery of plasma and platelets as a primary resuscitation approach to minimize trauma-induced coagulopathy. Plasma, red blood cell and platelet ratios of 1:1:1 appear to be the best substitution for fresh whole blood; however, the current literature consists only of survivor bias-prone observational studies.

Dear Anonymous. Here is the best article I have found on the subject of DO NOT RESUSCITATE orders:. Note that it says in part. This principle [excessive burden or not] can be expressed as follows: "A do-not- resuscitate order is morally permissible if one can judge that CPR is excessively burdensome for this patient, taking into account his situation and his physical and moral resources, or that CPR imposes excessive expense on the family or community.". CPR can be administered either in a hospital to a patient who suffers cardiac arrest or outside a hospital by a rescue team to a person who stops breathing because of cardiac arrest. Examples illustrating how the moral principle justifying a "do-not-resuscitate order" in a hospital or outside a hospital will now be given.. Judie ...

  • A student is not required to earn certification in cardiopulmonary resuscitation to successfully complete the instruction for the purposes of this section. (
  • The legislature finds that more than three hundred sixty thousand people in the United States experience cardiac arrest outside of a hospital every year, and only ten percent survive because the remainder do not receive timely cardiopulmonary resuscitation. (
  • When administered immediately, cardiopulmonary resuscitation doubles or triples survival rates from cardiac arrest. (
  • Washington state has a long-standing history of training members of the public in cardiopulmonary resuscitation with community-based training programs. (
  • Therefore, the legislature intends to create a generation of lifesavers by putting cardiopulmonary resuscitation skills in the hands of all high school graduates and providing schools with a flexible framework to prepare for an emergency. (
  • These poor outcomes may be attributable in part to the fact that only one third to one half of these patients receives bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). (

  • The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Division administers Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Education Programs to provide CPR education and training to targeted groups. (
  • Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique useful in many emergencies, including a heart attack or near drowning, in which someone's breathing or heartbeat has stopped. (
  • Clinical research should focus on improved cardiopulmonary resuscitation, re-oxygenation/ reperfusion strategies, therapeutic hypothermia, neuroprotection, neurorehabilitation, and consideration of drowning in advances made in treatment of other central nervous system disorders. (
  • Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is given when someone's breathing or pulse unexpectedly stops. (
  • During neonatal cardiopulmonary resuscitation , early establishment of vascular access is crucial. (
  • It just got a whole lot easier to keep up with the latest clinical and basic science research relating to acute care medicine and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. (
  • The papers published deal with the aetiology, pathophysiology and prevention of cardiac arrest, resuscitation training, clinical resuscitation, and experimental resuscitation research, although papers relating to animal studies will be published only if they are of exceptional interest and related directly to clinical cardiopulmonary resuscitation. (

  • Outcome of OHCA and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is very poor: Less than 1/3 of the victims regain spontaneous circulation (ROSC), 40-60% of those achieving ROSC suffer significant neurological disability due to brain hypoxia and only 1.7-6.4% are discharged from the hospital. (
  • [2] The rescuer may also provide artificial ventilation by either exhaling air into the subject's mouth or nose ( mouth-to-mouth resuscitation ) or using a device that pushes air into the subject's lungs ( mechanical ventilation ). (
  • CPR uses heart massage and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to get the heart or lungs working again. (
  • A disposable mouth to mouth resuscitation device includes a one way valve for preventing the victim's breath, saliva, mucus or disease agents from contact with the resuscitator's mouth or respiratory tract. (
  • The invention relates to mouth to mouth resuscitation equipment, and more specifically to a disposable resuscitation device which protects the resuscitator from contamination while permitting him freedom of movement and use of at least one hand for other life saving functions. (
  • Conventional mouth to mouth resuscitation equipment exhibits several problems. (
  • No. 3,957,046 disclosed a mouth to mouth resuscitation device of simple design and construction, inexpensive in cost so as to be disposable after use. (
  • These advantages are accomplished by a disposable mouth to mouth resuscitation structure comprising a flexible air tube for reaching from the victim to the resuscitator, with a mouth piece for the resuscitator connected to one end of the flexible air tube, and a valve body connected at its other end to the opposite end of the air tube. (

  • It is a standardised national course teaching evidence-based resuscitation guidelines and skills to healthcare professionals in the United Kingdom. (
  • 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). (
  • Resuscitation guidelines from the USA, UK and Europe suggest that sustained inflations should be researched further. (
  • The updated guidelines also provide indications for chest compressions and for the use of intravenous epinephrine, which is the preferred route of administration, and recommend not to use sodium bicarbonate or naloxone during resuscitation. (
  • The Neonatal Resuscitation Program was developed by the American Heart Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics to teach an evidence-based approach to newborn care. (
  • She has numerous publications and has served as a consultant and editor for the American Academy of Pediatrics Neonatal Resuscitation Program since 1998. (
  • Neonatal resuscitation also known as newborn resuscitation is an emergency procedure focused on supporting the approximately 10% of newborn children who do not readily begin breathing, putting them at risk of irreversible organ injury and death. (
  • These infrequent, high-risk deliveries may present challenges to community hospitals less familiar with advanced newborn resuscitation interventions. (
  • The enhanced access to neonatologists, who could remotely assess the newborn and guide the local care team through the resuscitation, allowed one-third of the babies to stay with their families in the local hospital," says Dr. Fang. (

  • Your donation can help us to achieve our goal: to preserve human life by making high-quality resuscitation available to all. (
  • 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. (
  • This is believed to be attributable to earlier recognition and management of critical conditions, earlier CPR, and the implementation of medical emergency teams with specialists trained in the acute resuscitation of pediatric patients using the PALS and APLS algorisms. (
  • Acute hemorrhage is the leading cause of acute life-threatening intravascular volume loss requiring aggressive fluid resuscitation to maintain tissue perfusion until the underlying cause can be corrected. (
  • Disturbances between the intravascular and extravascular volumes or acute blood loss are all indications for fluid resuscitation. (
  • According to a study by Christopher Moir, M.D. , a pediatric surgeon at Mayo Clinic's campus in Minnesota, and colleagues - published in the July 2018 issue of the Journal of Trauma Acute Care Surgery - children who received a second bolus of crystalloid often proceeded to need blood, providing supporting evidence for the current change of moving to administering blood earlier in resuscitation.

  • The flexible tube, the mouth and nose seal and the location of the exhaust port allow the resuscitator to have one hand free to perform, when necessary, cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, monitoring of vital signs, or steps for stemming the flow of blood. (
  • Although the vast majority of newly born infants do not require intervention to make the transition from intrauterine to extrauterine life, because of the large number of births, a sizable number will require some degree of resuscitation. (
  • This study compares a fifteen second sustained inflation (SI) to five repeated two - three second 'inflation breaths' during resuscitation at delivery of infants born prematurely. (
  • 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. (
  • Nearly 10 percent of the more than 4 million infants born in the United States annually need some assistance to begin breathing at birth, with approximately 1 percent needing extensive resuscitation 1 , 2 and about 0.2 to 0.3 percent developing moderate or severe hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy. (
  • Signs of orthostatic or persistent hypotension should prompt the provider to begin resuscitation as well. (
  • In contrast, the need for active resuscitation specifically signals delayed onset of respiration. (
  • The objective is to delay tissue death and to extend the brief window of opportunity for a successful resuscitation without permanent brain damage . (
  • Several studies have shown that for several lengths of inflation breaths, the expired tidal volume achieved is higher if the baby makes respiratory effort during the inflation (active inflation) and that stimulation of spontaneous respiratory effort is a key part in establishing an FRC, enabling spontaneous breathing, and increasing the likelihood of successful resuscitation. (
  • Hospitals that have been hesitant to set policies that allow families to be in the room during resuscitation should be encouraged that this didn't lead to worse outcomes or errors," said Dr. Zachary Goldberger, the study's lead author from the University of Washington Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. (
  • If the out-of-hospital arrest is due to massive myocardial infarction, then resuscitation may not accomplish much, but if the underlying cause is another condition, such as infection, then the outcomes could be more favorable, he explained. (
  • The AirLife Resuscitation devices are manual resuscitation devices that are used to provide positive pressure ventilation to patients who are not breathing or cannot adequately breathe on their own. (
  • This person must be capable of initiating resuscitation, including administration of positive-pressure ventilation and chest compressions. (
  • Doctors will apply cardiopulomary resuscitation to patients whose hearts stop suddenly. (
  • Fluid resuscitation of trauma patients has been an ongoing challenge, constantly reviewed and debated, resulting in recommendations changing for the use of crystalloids/colloids/packed red blood cells/warm fresh whole blood and clotting factors. (
  • Of those, 80 hospitals that treated 13,470 patients had policies allowing families to observe resuscitation. (
  • Hospital policies on family presence during resuscitation had no impact on whether patients survived to leave the hospital. (
  • The study is limited by its lack of data linking results for individual patients to whether their family members were present during resuscitation, Goldberger said. (
  • Resuscitation procedures can be quite violent, and more research is needed on how watching them might impact families and patients who survive the incident, said Lisa Salberg, founder and chief executive of the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Association, a patient advocacy group. (
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate prospectively seriously ill patients' characteristics, perceptions, and preferences associated with discussing resuscitation (CPR) with their physicians. (
  • Two month follow-up surveys of patients' communication of resuscitation preference. (
  • RESULTS: Thirty percent of patients communicated their resuscitation preference to their physician during a 2 month-period following hospital admission. (
  • CONCLUSIONS: Communication about resuscitation preferences occurred infrequently after hospital admission for a serious illness, even among patients wishing to forego resuscitation. (
  • Dr. Klinkner explains that the concern with the previous resuscitation scheme was giving pediatric patients, whose blood volume is typically around 80 cc/kg, about half of their total blood volume in crystalloid, which does not give them oxygen-carrying capacity. (
  • The new ATLS resuscitation scheme should prompt low-volume trauma centers to provide blood to injured children as they would for adult patients. (
  • Resuscitation should be part of broader discussions around advance care planning with patients and their families. (
  • 1] Another study found that the provision of written information about resuscitation was acceptable to patients but needed to be accompanied by a discussion regarding prognosis. (
  • Explain to patients that the findings came from an observational study and therefore cannot prove the association between infant resuscitation and low IQ. (
  • This organization has conducted case study on global need of resuscitation devices by neonatal patients. (
  • The one-page form is signed by a physician and spells out patients' wishes on medical interventions, including resuscitation, intubation and artificial nutrition or hydration, Pope said. (
  • Assessment of the need for fluid resuscitation begins with the clinical history. (
  • It should be remembered, however, that clinical scenarios are often complicated, and blood pressure goals should be individualized according to patient physiology, comorbidities and physiological compensation to shock during the time of resuscitation. (
  • Although many methods have been proposed to assess clinical performance during resuscitation, robust and generalizable metrics are still lacking. (
  • We aimed to establish evidence for validity of a previously published scoring instrument--the Clinical Performance Tool (CPT)--designed to evaluate clinical performance during simulated pediatric resuscitations. (
  • These decisions and management strategies appear relevant for further discussion and research, as this fluid resuscitation attempts to provide adequate organ perfusion and oxygen delivery in a system compromised by the physiological consequences of injury. (
  • For example, Medical Equipment & Gases Australia Pty Ltd offers Oxy-Viva 3 Resuscitator Kit that provides suction, resuscitation and oxygen therapy kit in one compact kit. (
  • In the resuscitation of an infant, initial oxygen concentration of 21 percent is recommended. (

  • For example, ZOLL Medical Corporation provides a comprehensive set of resuscitation technologies and devices that helps clinicians and healthcare professionals. (
  • These devices provide clinicians and healthcare professionals comprehensive support for resuscitation. (
  • It is sated by the case study that there will be high demand of resuscitation devices among healthcare providers and facilities in near future. (
  • This program is planed for neonatal resuscitation, which is similar to ACLS in adult. (
  • In select circumstances, naloxone hydrochloride, sodium bicarbonate, and volume expanders may be used to aid in neonatal resuscitation, although research is varied on the effectiveness of these medications. (
  • Naloxone and sodium bicarbonate are rarely needed and are not recommended during neonatal resuscitation. (

  • HOUSTON, April 20 -- Babies who needed resuscitation at birth had an increased risk of low IQ eight years later, whether the child had encephalopathy in the neonatal period or not, according to a large-scale British study. (
  • The study group comprised 815 children who needed resuscitation at birth but were asymptomatic for encephalopathy, 58 children who needed resuscitation and had symptoms of encephalopathy, and a reference group of children who had normal births. (
  • During resuscitations, medical personnel may place a large monitor/infusion catheter, such as Swan-Ganz or triple-lumen catheter, to assess a patient's state of hydration, heart functioning, and the amount of fluid in the lungs. (
  • Without adequate fluid resuscitation, tissue hypoperfusion leads to lactate production and metabolic acidosis. (

  • The ALS course has also been adopted by the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) and the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC). (
  • ALS courses are held at centres throughout the UK and are approved and certified by the Resuscitation Council (UK). (
  • Successful candidates receive a Resuscitation Council (UK) ALS provider certificate, which is valid for 4 years. (
  • the Resuscitation Council (UK) only charges the course centre £26 per candidate registration and £28 per ALS manual. (
  • Resuscitation Council UK outline their stance on PPE during COVID-19. (
  • I am happy for Resuscitation Council UK to send me regular newsletters by email. (
  • Resuscitation Council (UK) is a registered Charity No. 1168914. (
  • Resuscitation Council (UK) Trading Ltd is registered as a Company limited by guarantee in England & Wales No. 0299414. (
  • Efforts of many organizations such as Resuscitation Council of Southern Africa and United Nations Foundation in order to increase the awareness and knowledge about these devices will further drive the market growth. (
  • A case-control study was designed to determine if immediate resuscitation by rescuers or bystanders reduces the frequency of severe neurological damage or death in children with a documented submersion event. (
  • Immediate resuscitation before the arrival of paramedical personnel is associated with a significantly better neurological outcome in children with submersion injury. (
  • When it first dropped in 2001, Resuscitation served as a de facto introduction to the duo, collecting a bunch of songs on CD that had only previously been available on hard-to-find singles and EPs. (
  • Professor Emeritus Leonard Cobb was honored for his pioneering work in prehospital care in the July issue of the journal Resuscitation . (
  • Women had a significantly lower chance of successful survival after a resuscitation attempt than men (13 percent women vs. 20 percent men). (
  • Current resuscitation methods yield an average survival rate to hospital discharge with intact neurological function that approaches only 5 percent nationwide. (
  • 2 ) Although this failure to document a DNR preference is concerning, the absence of a DNR order did not result in resuscitation being performed against a person's wishes in SUPPORT. (
  • The other problem with the past resuscitation scheme was that the lungs, while trying to heal, would get extra volume, which the lungs can't tolerate and leads to longer intubation. (
  • Either that person or someone else who is immediately available should have the skills required to perform a complete resuscitation, including endotracheal intubation and administration of medications. (
  • Note that intubation should only be performed by proficient personnel and should not delay other resuscitation efforts. (
  • A team or persons trained in neonatal resuscitation should be promptly available at all deliveries to provide complete resuscitation, including endotracheal intubation and administration of medications. (
  • The mask component on various lots of the resuscitation devices have been identified as having the potential to exhibit a sticking condition which may result in a difficult to/unable to disconnect condition of the mask from the elbow of the resuscitator. (
  • A mouth and nose mask is connected to the plastic body, adjacent to the curved airway tube, for sealing over the nose and mouth of the victim during resuscitation. (
  • 2. The resuscitation device of claim 1, further including a mouth and nose mask connected to the lower end of the valve body, for sealing off the victim's mouth and nose by downward pressure on the mask during resuscitation. (
  • Primary Survey: Initial Priorities Resuscitation.Definitive Airway Management.Intravenous Access Considerations. (
  • Following initial stabilization, victims should be transferred to centers with expertise in age-specific post-resuscitation neurocritical care. (
  • The initial steps of resuscitation are to provide warmth by placing the baby under a radiant heat source, position the head in a "sniffing" position to open the airway, clear the airway with a bulb syringe or suction catheter, and dry the baby and stimulate breathing. (
