Body mass index and outcome of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients not treated by targeted temperature management
BackgroundObesity has been demonstrated to increase the risk of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) and may influence the quality and effectiveness of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Our aim was to investigate the association ...
Development and Testing of a Novel Anaesthesia Induction/Ventilation Protocol for Patients With Cardiogenic Shock Complicating Acute Myocardial Infarction
BackgroundCardiogenic shock is a life-threatening condition and patients might require rapid sequence induction (RSI) and mechanical ventilation. In this study, we evaluated a new RSI/mechanical ventilation protocol in ...
Intraoperative initiation of a modified ARDSNet protocol increases survival of septic patients with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome
PurposeTo assess the intraoperative initiation and feasibility of a modified NIH-NHLBI ARDS Network Mechanical Ventilation Protocol (mARDSNet protocol) in septic patients with severe ARDS. Materials and methodsThis prospective ...
The impact of body mass index on post resuscitation survival after cardiac arrest: A meta-analysis
Summary BackgroundObservational studies examining the association between body mass index (BMI) and the outcome of cardiac arrest (CA) shows controversial results. MethodsWe reviewed literature for studies assessing the ...
Airway pressure and outcome of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: A prospective observational study
AimTo assess the usefulness of airway pressure as predictor of return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC), as well as to investigate the optimized ventilation compression strategy during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). ...
Identifying the role of cytochrome c in post-resuscitation pathophysiology
Cytochrome c, an electron carrier that normally resides in the mitochondrial intermembrane space, may translocate to the cytosol under ischemic and hypoxic conditions and contribute to mitochondrial permeability transition ...
