Community socioeconomic status and public access defibrillators: A multilevel analysis
Although current guidelines recommend that distribution of public-access defibrillators (PADs) should take into account area-level risk of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), community socioeconomic status (SES) can unduly influence policy implementation in positioning PADs. Using recent, complete data from Seoul Metropolitan City, Korea, this study aims to examine whether community SES is associated with distribution of PADs, in terms of per capita count and risk-grid coverage.

Evaluation of the Boussignac Cardiac arrest device (B-card) during cardiopulmonary resuscitation in an animal model
The purpose of this study was to examine continuous oxygen insufflation (COI) in a swine model of cardiac arrest. The primary hypothesis was COI during standard CPR (S-CPR) should result in higher intrathoracic pressure (ITP) during chest compression and lower ITP during decompression versus S-CPR alone. These changes with COI were hypothesized to improve hemodynamics. The second hypothesis was that changes in ITP with S-CPR+COI would result in superior hemodynamics compared with active compression decompression (ACD) + impedance threshold device (ITD) CPR, as this method primarily lowers ITP during chest decompression.

Survival of cardiac arrest patients on ski slopes: A 10-year analysis of the Northern French Alps Emergency Network
Intense physical activity, cold and altitude make mountain sports a cause of increased risk of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). The difficulties of pre-hospital management related to this challenging environment could be mitigated by the presence of ski-patrollers in ski areas and use of helicopters for medical rescue. We assess whether this particular situation positively impacts the chain of survival compared to the general population. (Source: Resuscitation)

Ultrasound use during cardiopulmonary resuscitation is associated with delays in chest compressions
High-quality chest compressions are a critical component of the resuscitation of patients in cardiopulmonary arrest. Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is used frequently during emergency department (ED) resuscitations, but there has been limited research assessing its benefits and harms during the delivery of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). We hypothesized that use of POCUS during cardiac arrest resuscitation adversely affects high-quality CPR by lengthening the duration of pulse checks beyond the current cardiopulmonary resuscitation guidelines recommendation of 10s.

Predictive value of EEG in postanoxic encephalopathy: a quantitative model-based approach
The majority of comatose patients after cardiac arrest do not regain consciousness due to severe postanoxic encephalopathy. Early and accurate outcome prediction is therefore essential in determining further therapeutic interventions. The electroencephalogram is a standardized and commonly available tool used to estimate prognosis in postanoxic patients. The identification of pathological EEG patterns with poor prognosis relies however primarily on visual EEG scoring by experts. We introduced a model-based approach of EEG analysis (state space model) that allows for an objective and quantitative description of spectral EEG...

Intubation is not a marker for coma after in-hospital cardiac arrest: a retrospective study
In-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA) strikes over 200,000 people in the United States annually. Targeted temperature management (TTM) is considered beneficial in other settings, but there is no prospective data for IHCA. Recent work on TTM and IHCA found an association between TTM and worse outcome. However, the authors used intubation as a marker for coma to determine eligibility for TTM. The validity of this approach is unexplored. (Source: Resuscitation)

Auditory discrimination improvement predicts awakening of postanoxic comatose patients treated with targeted temperature management at 36 °C
Outcome prognostication in postanoxic comatose patients is more accurate in predicting poor than good recovery. Using electroencephalography recordings in patients treated with targeted temperature management at 33 °C (TTM 33), we have previously shown that improvement in auditory discrimination over the first days of coma predicted awakening.

Feasibility of whole body hypothermia for neonates without congenital heart defects surviving in-hospital cardiac arrest unrelated to perinatal asphyxia
Therapeutic hypothermia is recommended to improve outcomes in neonates with perinatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy [1]. The treatment is best provided by whole-body hypothermia (WBH) using servo-controlled devices [2]. Similarly, hypothermia is recommended to improve outcomes in cardiac arrest-surviving adults [3]. In children beyond the perinatal period available data are conflicting: recent trials enrolled heterogeneous populations and failed to show any significant benefit [4]. Thus, further studies are needed to understand which patients could benefit from WBH. (Source: Resuscitation)
