Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, new recommendations

La Presse médicale
Pascal Cassan


A procedure for telephone CPR must be started since the call centres do the diagnosis of cardiac arrest. All the rescuers, trained or not, have to realize quality chest compressions (depths 5 in 6cm, rhythm from 100 to 120 per minute) to the victims of cardiac arrest. Chest compressions must be interrupted only briefly in case of indispensable specific interventions. The trained rescuers have to realize insufflations during the CPR, with a ratio compression-ventilation of 30/2. The development of AE programs is encouraged. A more important deployment of AED is necessary in public places and residential areas. The use of the acetylsalicylic acid by witnesses, in case of cardiac arrest, is authorized with or without the assistance of the medical dispatcher of the EMS. The administration of medicines by endotracheal tube is not any more recommended. If the intravenous access cannot be used, it is the intra-osseous, which would be privileged. In case of children cardiac arrest, the non-professional rescuer have to use a ratio of 30 compressions for two ventilations if he is alone and 15/2 if they are working in team. All the citizens, and all the healthcare providers, should be trained in CPR and to keep their skills should follow ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
