Resuscitation Ventilation with CCSV – Experience the Innovation at ERC Congress in Freiburg

(Hamburg) – Medical device manufacturer WEINMANN Emergency has developed a ventilation mode specially designed for resuscitation, Chest Compression Synchronized Ventilation (CCSV). CCSV applies a pressure-controlled mechanical breath synchronously with each chest compression, avoiding the disadvantages of conventional ventilation forms during resuscitation, while simultaneously improving gas exchange and hemodynamics. For the first time, mechanical breaths with a regulated peak pressure are delivered synchronously with chest compressions – a revolution that could replace volume-controlled ventilation as the gold standard for resuscitation! Be curious and learn more about CCSV at this year´s ERC Congress, 28th to 30th September, in Freiburg. With CCSV, WEINMANN Emergency introduces a ventilation mode for the emergency medical device MEDUMAT Standard² that can be fully integrated into today's resuscitation process and is compatible with existing automatic chest compression devices. During chest compression, the heart and the pulmonary vessels in the lung are compressed, which also results in gas volume escaping from the lung below. Surrounded by soft tissue, the heart can thus compress only to a limited extent. The CCSV ventilation mode revolutionizes this decades-old procedure. CCSV modifies the principle of resuscitation as follows: The synchronized stroke causes the thoracic pressure to additionally increase during the compression phase. ...

Authors: de Gregorio C Abstract Regardless of advances in medical and interventional treatment of cardiovascular disease (CVD), a limited number of patients attend a cardiac rehabilitation (CR) programme on a regular basis. Due to modern therapies more individuals will be surviving an acute cardiovascular event, but the expected burden of chronic heart failure will be increasing worldwide.However, both in high- and low-income countries, secondary prevention after an acute myocardial infarction or stroke has been implemented in less than a half of eligible patients.Combined interventions are still needed to reduce d...

Authors: Gale RP, Hochhaus A Abstract Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) can be cured using tyrosine kinase-inhibitors (TKIs) when cure is defined as achieving a life-expectancy similar or even better than sex- and age-matched persons without CML. Most deaths in persons with CML are now from non-leukemia-related causes including heart disease, diabetes other cancers and stroke. Contrary to expectation, 40-50 percent of persons with CML treated for a few years with TKIs and who achieve a deep molecular response can stop TKI-therapy without leukemia recurrence for several years, some possibly indefinitely. Consequently, ...

CONCLUSIONS: To our knowledge, this is the first study to explore the effects of CRP on PSCI in Han Chinese with ICAS. Our findings indicate that higher CRP levels at admission are associated with subsequent cognitive decline in Han Chinese patients with ICAS following ischemic stroke. Further studies in other ethnic groups are needed to validate the use of CRP to predict dementia in ICAS patients. PMID: 29451096 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Viz.Ai has just received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance to market its artificial intelligence application that can alert a neurovascular specialist if their patient is possibly suffering a stroke. When the app detects large vessel blockage, it sends the physician a text message who can then review the patient ’s brain images at their computer station. This alert system can expedite treatment procedures and potentially delay the stroke’s progression. More young adults are being hospitalized for strokes. Although there has been an increase in stroke survival rates,as of 2013, stroke is the fifth lea...

CONCLUSIONS: Addition of carotid ultrasonography measures to conventional risk factors significantly improved the stratification of patients by cardiovascular risk. Changes over time in carotid ultrasonography measures may be used as therapeutic outcome measures. PMID: 29445076 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Boggs JM, Beck A, Hubley S, Peterson EL, Hu Y, Williams LK, Prabhakar D, Rossom RC, Lynch FL, Lu CY, Waitzfelder BE, Owen-Smith AA, Simon GE, Ahmedani BK Abstract OBJECTIVE: Mitigation of suicide risk by reducing access to lethal means, such as firearms and potentially lethal medications, is a highly recommended practice. To better understand groups of patients at risk of suicide in medical settings, the authors compared demographic and clinical risk factors between patients who died by suicide by using firearms or other means with matched patients who did not die by suicide (control group). METHODS: I...

(Georgetown University Medical Center) A stroke in a baby -- even a big one -- does not have the same lasting impact as a stroke in an adult. A study led by Georgetown University Medical Center investigators found that a decade or two after a 'perinatal' stroke damaged the left 'language' side of the brain, affected teenagers and young adults used the right sides of their brain for language.
