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. ...

Introduction: Burn trauma damages resting cardiac function; however, it is currently unknown if the cardiovascular response to exercise is likewise impaired. We tested the hypothesis that, in children, burn injury lowers cardiac output (Q˙) and stroke volume (SV) during submaximal exercise. Methods: Five children with 49% ± 4% total body surface area (BSA) burned (two female, 11.7 ± 1 yr, 40.4 ± 18 kg, 141.1 ± 9 cm) and eight similar nonburned controls (five female, 12.5 ± 2 yr, 58.0 ± 17 kg, 147.3 ± 12 cm) with comparable exercise capacity (peak oxygen consumption [peak V...

Purpose: To improve the current understanding of the impact of resistance exercise on the heart, by examining the acute responses of left ventricular (LV) strain, twist, and untwisting rate (“LV mechanics”). Methods: LV echocardiographic images were recorded in systole and diastole before, during and immediately after (7–12 s) double-leg press exercise at two intensities (30% and 60% of maximum strength, one-repetition maximum). Speckle tracking analysis generated LV strain, twist, and untwisting rate data. Additionally, beat-by-beat blood pressure was recorded and systemic vascular resistance (SVR) and ...

Conclusions: Using 3-Tesla HR-MRI may allow visualization of the perforating branches presumably related to ALPI. Identification of the relevant cerebral perforating arteries may help us to understand the stroke mechanism in patients with posterior circulation territory infarction.Eur Neurol 2017;78:229 –233

When the population as a whole is aging because of historical changes in birth and mortality rates, meaning that an increasing percentage of people are older rather than younger with each passing year, it is perfectly possible to observe both a growth in the total number of cases of age-related disease and at the same time a reduction in the rate at which individuals develop age-related disease. Both of these trends are underway at the present time. In this context, the short article noted here reviews some of the epidemiological research that indicates the risk of suffering dementia is falling. Numerous studies h...
