Quick action by medics was key to Christian Eriksen ’s survival

Footballer ’s cardiac arrest highlights importance of immediate use of CPR and defibrillation in saving livesSwift action was crucial to Christian Eriksen ’s survival when themidfielder collapsed during the first half of Denmark ’s opening game in the Euro 2020 championship against Finland.Denmark ’s team doctor, Morten Boesen, confirmed that the 29-year-old hadgone into cardiac arrest on the pitch and was brought back through a combination of CPR – the manual cardiopulmonary resuscitation that involves repeated pushing down on the chest – and an electric shock from a defibrillator.Continue reading...

In reply to Jamal et al., our study did not aim to demonstrate the non-superiority of fibrinolysis to primary PCI. It is noteworthy that delayed primary PCI if the symptoms persisted and elective PCI if stabilized were integral parts of the fibrinolysis-first strategy. We aimed to stress the overall in-hospital effect of such a ‘retrograde’ pattern of management (not fibrinolysis only) driven by extreme times when the COVID-19 pandemic hit China first at the beginning of 2020 [1]. Among those patients in whom fibrinolysis was not contraindicated, many refused fibrinolysis therapy for its potential bleeding risk.

Objective: To determine the association between surgical timing and short-term morbidity and mortality in elderly patients who sustain hip fractures using a national trauma database (OTA/AO 31A1-3, 31B1-3). Design: Retrospective cohort study. Setting: Level I–IV trauma centers in the United States. Patients/Participants: All patients ≥65 years of age who underwent surgery for hip fracture from 2011 to 2013. Intervention: Time to surgery of 48 hours from admission. Main outcome measurements: Primary outcome was mortality by hospital discharge. Secondary outcomes were complicat...

CONCLUSIONS: The duration between MI and CABG has a direct influence on outcomes after CABG. While it is clear that the longer the duration between MI and CABG, the lower the mortality risk, it is however difficult to decide on an exact cut-off time frame.PMID:34552641 | PMC:PMC8442093 | DOI:10.5114/kitp.2021.105184

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVE: Circulating progenitor cells possess immune modulatory properties and might mitigate inflammation that is characteristic of patients with coronary artery disease. We hypothesized that patients with fewer circulating progenitor cells (CPCs) will have higher inflammatory markers and worse outcomes. Approach and Results: Patients with stable coronary artery disease were enrolled in a prospective study enumerating CPCs as CD (cluster of differentiation)-34-expressing mononuclear cells (CD34+) a...

This study aimed to analyze whether comorbidities impact postoperative complication rate or survival after anatomical lung resection for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).MethodsA retrospective analysis of 1219 patients who underwent NSCLC resection between 2000 and 2015 was performed. Analyzed comorbidities included chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD), hypertension, coronary artery disease (CAD), peripheral artery disease, myocardial infarction history, diabetes mellitus, renal insufficiency and other malignancies.ResultsMost patients (78.9%) had comorbidities, most commonly hypertension (34.1%) followed by COPD (26....

In conclusion, RV parameters significantly improved in patients with acute or chronic RCA occlusion, but not in no-RCA patients. RV FWLS was the only RV parameter able to discriminate between acute ischemic and non-ischemic myocardium. Moreover, RV GLS was independently predictiv e for functional status.
