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. ...

Discussion: Physical therapists may be unfamiliar with patients of Amish heritage due to the infrequency of PT services used by these individuals. This case report demonstrates a physical therapist's sensitivity to and acceptance of the Amish cultural beliefs, which ensured appropriate clinical decisions and positive patient- and family-centered outcomes. Engaging the patient's family in dialogue about realistic discharge options early in the acute care stay allowed the family time to understand the complexity of the patient's diagnoses and challenges of the health care environment as well as align decisions with their cultural beliefs.

CONCLUSIONS: Over a 10 year+ follow-up period Asian subjects had a higher risk of stroke than CHD. Contrary to CVD prevention in Western countries, strategies should also consider stroke instead of CHD only. PMID: 29920124 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractIschemic stroke (IS) is the main cause of mortality and disability in China; thus, this study aimed to examine the association between six variants and their haplotypes within the transferrin (TF) gene and the risk of IS in the Southern Chinese Han population. Genotyping was performed using the Sequenom MassARRAY platform for 249 IS patients and 249 age- and sex-matched controls. The association between polymorphisms and IS risk was tested by Chi squared test and haplotype and stratification analysis. Odds ratios (ORs) and confidence intervals (CIs) were estimated by unconditional logistic regression analysis. The ...

Conclusions: In patients with a recent ischemic stroke, a history of stroke or TIA and the subtype large artery atherosclerosis are associated with an increased risk of recurrent ischemic stroke. Predictors evaluated with MRI include multiple ischemic changes and isolated cortical lesions. Predictors of recurrent ischemic stroke concerning CT or ultrasound have not been published.Cerebrovasc Dis 2018;45:279 –287

Aims About one-third of ischemic stroke are cryptogenic. Paradoxical embolism through patent foramen ovale (PFO) has been identified as a possible cause of cryptogenic stroke. Therefore, PFO closure has been considered for secondary prevention of cryptogenic stroke. However, randomized clinical trials (RCTs) comparing PFO closure versus medical therapy led to conflicting results. Our objectives were to examine if PFO closure is superior to medical therapy alone for secondary prevention of cryptogenic stroke and to investigate whether PFO closure is associated with an increased incidence of atrial fibrillation/atrial flut...
