Review and Outcome of Prolonged Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

Critical Care Research and Practice

Feb 18, 2016

Houssein YounessJean Keddissi

Abstract

The maximal duration of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is unknown. We report a case of prolonged CPR. We have then reviewed all published cases with CPR duration equal to or more than 20 minutes. The objective was to determine the survival rate, the neurological outcome, and the ch...read more

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.

Myocarditis

Myocarditis is an acute or chronic inflammatory disease of the myocardium which can be viral, postinfectious immune or primarily organ-specific autoimmune. Discover the latest research on myocarditis here.

Heart Rhythm & Arrythmias

Heart arrhythmias, also known as irregular heartbeat or cardiac dysrhythmia, are a group of conditions where the heartbeat is irregular (dysrhythmia), too slow (bradycardia), or too fast (tachycardia). Discover the latest research on heart rhythm and arrythmias here.

Complications of Diabetes

This feed focuses on the complications of diabetes, including diabetic nephropathy, ketoacidosis, cardiomyopathy, and neuropathy.

Neuropeptides

There are >50 peptides released by neurons that function as neuromodulators, neurotransmitters, neurohormones, and hormones. Here is the latest research on the systemic function of neuropeptides in the body.

Ventricular Arrhythmias

Ventricular arrhythmias are abnormal heart rhythms that originate in the lower part of the heart. Find the latest research on ventricular arrhythmias here.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.

Embolic Disease

Embolic diseases can result in serious complications, depending where the emboli travels and organs that it affects. Thromboembolisms arise from pieces of a blood clot breaking free. Treatment and prevention involves anticoagulants for the different types of embolic diseases. Here is the latest research on embolic diseases.
