ECG rhythm and airway management make all the difference during a heart attack
(Osaka University) Japan-based research examined a large-scale national registry of cardiac arrest cases to measure the effects of advanced airway management (AAM) on one-month outcomes after patients survived. The deep statistical analysis found that patients not needing electrical defibrillation (based on ECG rhythm) and receiving AAM had better outcomes, such as hospital discharge. The results suggest ECG rhythm is a valuable indicator for deciding on whether to use AAM during cardiac arrest. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Extracorporeal Pulmonary Resuscitation (ECPR) of Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest
For decades, extracorporeal life support (commonly referred to as extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, or ECMO) was used in the operating room (OR) and ICU to treat refractory shock, typically after surgery. More recently, ECMO has been used to treat refractory cardiac arrest; in this indication, it takes the name “ECPR.” Today, ECPR is used in many places. Although there are published case reports, series and after/before studies, there have been no randomized controlled trials to illustrate its effectiveness in the resuscitation of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients. However, ECPR is now recommend...

Why Food Could Be the Best Medicine of All
When Tom Shicowich’s toe started feeling numb in 2010, he brushed it off as a temporary ache. At the time, he didn’t have health insurance, so he put off going to the doctor. The toe became infected, and he got so sick that he stayed in bed for two days with what he assumed was the flu. When he finally saw a doctor, the physician immediately sent Shicowich to the emergency room. Several days later, surgeons amputated his toe, and he ended up spending a month in the hospital to recover. Shicowich lost his toe because of complications of Type 2 diabetes as he struggled to keep his blood sugar under control. He wa...
