I read with interest the article by Goto et al.  assessing whether bystander compression-only cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is equivalent to conventional CPR in children with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). The study reports that conventional CPR was associated with improved outcomes compared to compression-only CPR in the majority of the subgroups following pediatric (1 –17 years old) OHCA. However, I have some concerns about the conclusion of this article.
Authors: Korkmaz A, Sahin D, Guray U Abstract AIM: Recently fragmented QRS (fQRS) on ECG has been introduced as a predictor of myocardial scarring and myocardial ischemia in coronary artery disease. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between fQRS and fractional flow reserve (FFR) results in patients with the intermediate degree of coronary artery stenosis. METHODS: A total of 301 consecutive patients who underwent coronary angiography and FFR measurement for intermediate coronary artery stenosis were included in the study. The study patients were divided into two ...
