Delayed and intermittent CPR for severe accidental hypothermia

Resuscitation

Mar 1, 2015

Les GordonKen Zafren

Abstract

Cardiac arrest (CA) in patients with severe accidental hypothermia (core temperature <28 °C) differs from CA in normothermic patients. Maintaining CPR throughout the prehospital period may be impossible, particularly during difficult evacuations. We have developed guidelines for rescuer...read more

Ischemia & Reperfusion

Ischemia and reperfusion is a pathological condition characterized by an initial restriction of blood supply to an organ followed by the subsequent restoration of perfusion and concomitant reoxygenation. Restoration of blood flow and reoxygenation is frequently associated with an exacerbation of tissue injury and a profound inflammatory response (called ‘reperfusion injury’). Discover the latest research on ischemia and reperfusion here.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.
