Hunt-Hess 5 Subarachnoid Haemorrhage Presenting with Cardiac Arrest is Associated with Larger Volume Bleeds
The mechanism, effects, and outcomes of cardiac arrest (CA) caused by subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) remain unclear. We compared SAH patients presenting with CA to other high-grade SAH patients presenting without CA in order to better understand (1) the cause of CA, (2) cerebral pathophysiology following CA, and (3) outcomes of CA in patients with SAH.

Coronary lesions in refractory Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA) treated by Extra Corporeal Pulmonary Resuscitation (ECPR)
Extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) is a second line treatment for refractory cardiac arrest (R-OHCA). Timing of ECPR before performing coronary angiography (CAG) is still debated. The aim of the study was to describe the clinical and angiographic characteristics of the largest cohort of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients undergoing ECPR. (Source: Resuscitation)

Influence of chest compression artefact on capnogram-based ventilation detection during out-of-hospital cardiopulmonary resuscitation
Capnography has been proposed as a method for monitoring the ventilation rate during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). A high incidence (above 70%) of capnograms distorted by chest compression induced oscillations has been previously reported in out-of-hospital (OOH) CPR. The aim of the study was to better characterize the chest compression artefact and to evaluate its influence on the performance of a capnogram-based ventilation detector during OOH CPR.

Effect of sedation on quantitative electroencephalography after cardiac arrest
Electroencephalography (EEG) has clinical and prognostic importance after cardiac arrest (CA). Recently, interest in quantitative EEG (qEEG) analysis has grown. The qualitative effects of sedation on EEG are well known, but potentially confounding effects of sedatives on qEEG after anoxic injury are poorly characterized. We hypothesize that sedation increases suppression ratio (SR) and decreases alpha/delta ratio (ADR) and amplitude-integrated EEG (aEEG), and that the magnitude of sedation effects will be associated with outcome.

‘She’s sort of breathing’: what linguistic factors determine call-taker recognition of agonal breathing in emergency calls for cardiac arrest?
In emergency ambulance calls, agonal breathing remains a barrier to the recognition of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), initiation of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and rapid dispatch. We aimed to explore whether the language used by callers to describe breathing had an impact on call-taker recognition of agonal breathing and hence cardiac arrest. (Source: Resuscitation)

Variation and correlation of end –tidal CO2 and amplitude spectrum area in a refractory ventricular fibrillation. A case from the ReCaPTa study
A refractory Ventricular Fibrillation (VF) is a challenge for the emergency teams. Hemodynamic monitoring during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) helps to maintain high quality. A retrospective study reported recently that the higher the end-tidal carbon dioxide (ETCO2) was prior to the shock, the higher the chance of success [1]. In another study the Amplitude Spectrum Area (AMSA) of 17 mV-Hz predicted defibrillation success in two thirds of cases [2]. The correlation between ETCO2 and AMSA and its variation has never been described in a long case of refractory VF. (Source: Resuscitation)

Interaction of defibrillation waveform with the time to defibrillation or the number of defibrillation attempts on survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest
Early biphasic defibrillation is effective in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) cases. In the resuscitation of patients with OHCA, it is not clear how the defibrillation waveform interacts with the time to defibrillation to influence patient survival. The second, and any subsequent, shocks need to be administered by an on-line physician in Japan. Thus, we investigated the interaction between the defibrillation waveform and time to or the number of defibrillation on resuscitation outcomes. (Source: Resuscitation)

Hemodynamic effects of IV sodium nitrite in hospitalized comatose survivors of out of hospital cardiac arrest
Patients resuscitated from cardiac arrest have brain and cardiac injury. Recent animal studies suggest that the administration of sodium nitrite after resuscitation from 12minutes of asystole limits acute cardiac dysfunction and improves survival and neurologic outcomes. It has been hypothesized that low doses of IV sodium nitrite given during resuscitation of out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) will improve survival. Low doses of sodium nitrite (e.g., 9.6mg of sodium nitrite) are safe in healthy individuals, however the effect of nitrite on blood pressure in resuscitated cardiac arrest patients is unknown.

Predicting ROSC in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest using expiratory carbon dioxide concentration: Is trend-detection instead of absolute threshold values the key?
Guidelines recommend detecting return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) by a rising concentration of carbon dioxide in the exhalation air. As CO2 is influenced by numerous factors, no absolute cut-off values of CO2 to detect ROSC are agreed on so far. As trends in CO2 might be less affected by influencing factors, we investigated an approach which is based on detecting CO2-trends in real-time. (Source: Resuscitation)
