Journal of the American Heart Association; Ambinder DI, Patil KD et. al.
Jun 15th, 2021 - Background Pulseless electrical activity (PEA) is a common initial rhythm in cardiac arrest. A substantial number of PEA arrests are caused by coronary ischemia in the setting of acute coronary occlusion, but the underlying mechanism is not well u...

Jan 12th, 2016 - Inhospital cardiac arrest still constitutes an important clinical problem with survival to discharge ranging within 0-42% (most common range = 15-20%). Survival after witnessed, pulseless ventricular fibrillation/tachycardia(VF/VT) that is respons...
Objectives: The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety of an early discharge strategy in patients with low risk ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI), compared...

Apr 14th, 2020 - Among patients who had an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, intravenous sodium nitrite given by paramedics during resuscitation did not significantly improve their chances of being admitted to or discharged from the hospital alive. The study was pre...
Dec 6th, 2018 - Cardiac Arrest in ESRD Patients with ESRD may have sudden cardiac arrest as a result of several etiologies. During the advance cardiac life support algorithm, there is a brief period of evaluation of the electrical rhythm in which echocardiography.
Nov 13th, 2017 - Predictors showing utility Several clinical factors predicted poor cerebral outcome with low false-positive rates: Unwitnessed cardiac arrest had a false-positive rate of only 4%; initial presentation in asystole or with pulseless electrical activ.
