Why Do Women Live Longer Than Men?
The numbers don’t lie: women tend to live longer than men. The average American man will live to age 76, according to the latest CDC figures, while the average woman in America will live to age 81. And a woman’s extra years tend to be healthy ones. The World Health Organization’s HALE index, which calculates the number of years a man or woman can expect to live without a major disease or injury, finds that American men can look forward to 67 healthy years, while American women will enjoy 70 years of “full heath.” This male-female lifespan gap is not a new phenomenon; experts have known about i...

Three Pillars for Pediatric Resuscitation Success
Data from the American Heart Association and the Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) guidelines consistently report neurologically intact survival from pediatric cardiac arrest to be 3% for infants and 10% for children. This pediatric survival data has remained unchanged for decades without a clear vision or path to improved survival statistics. Change is needed, and we recommend focusing on the following three pillars in order to achieve success in pediatric cardiac arrest: 1) bystander CPR; 2) telecommunicator CPR (TCPR); and 3) on-scene EMS resuscitation. Using a different lens to evaluate these links in the chain of...

Transesophageal Echocardiography During Cardiac Arrest
Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) has been endorsed by international guidelines as a potentially useful diagnostic modality for the evaluation of patients in cardiac arrest.1,2 Echocardiography can identify organized cardiac activity vs. standstill, predict the likelihood of survival,3–5 and may be used to establish the cause of the arrest and guide treatment, such as in the case of pericardial tamponade or massive pulmonary embolus. However, the process of TTE image acquisition has been observed to cause prolonged pauses in the delivery of vital chest compressions and reduce hands-on time.6,7 A structured protoco...

Active Intrathoracic Pressure Regulation During Resuscitation
Active intrathoracic pressure regulation (aIPR) is a novel therapy approved for the treatment of low blood flow states, such as cardiac arrest. This therapy is delivered with a device called the CirQPOD that’s inserted into a standard respiratory circuit between the patient and a means to provide positive pressure ventilation (e.g., bag-valve balloon or mechanical ventilator). Between each positive pressure ventilation, aIPR decrease intrathoracic pressure to subatmospheric levels, which subsequently enhances blood return to the heart and increases stoke volume, cardiac output, arterial blood pressures and coronary p...

Neuroprotective Effects of Targeted Temperature Management
Hypothermia has a number of potential neuroprotective effects; however, they can be broken down into two main properties: metabolic and neuronal protection. When mammals hibernate, they experience acidosis both from lactate and carbon dioxide, resulting in hypoxia and hypoglycemia. These conditions are not unlike those that occur post-cardiac arrest: Hypothermia decreases metabolic rate by about 6% per 1 degree C reduction in brain temperature. If blood flow and demand are coupled, it’s possible to see a 50% decline in cerebral metabolic after cooling the brain to 32 degrees C. The protective effects occur via reduct...

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...

Initially described during the Korean War, aortic balloon occlusion for hemorrhage control in trauma was reported sporadically over the ensuing decades without general adoption into clinical practice.

Epinephrine has been a key component of ALS since the first CPR guidelines were published in the early 1960s, and its use has continued with little change in dose or timings over the past 60 years. As well as its positive inotropic and chronotropic properties mediated through beta-agonist properties, the demonstration that epinephrine’s alpha-agonist effects increased aortic diastolic pressure to increase both coronary blood flow (associated with an increased chance of return of spontaneous circulation [ROSC]) and cerebral blood flow was also thought to be of benefit.1,2 However, there have been concerns about potent...
