121. Use of Epinephrine in Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest

Part Question In [adults with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest] does [pre-hospital epinephrine] affect [long-term morbidity or mortality]? Clinical Scenario A 74-year-old male presents to the emergency department with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Paramedics administered epinephrine prior to arrival to the hospital. The patient is unresponsive but has a faint pulse. You wonder about the long-term benefits of epinephrine which is still recommended by the American Heart Association. Search Strategy (...) % CI 2.36 to 3.54) Based on many observational studies Overall ROSC Survival to discharge RR 0.93 (95% CI 0.5 to 1.74) RR 0.69 (95% CI 0.48 to 1) Comment(s) Epinephrine is a fundamental part of advanced cardiac life support. It is said to increase coronary and cerebral perfusion. This alpha-adrenergic-mediated process is thought to contribute to ROSC in arrested patients. However, despite epinephrine's integral part in standard resuscitation protocols, there remains little evidence that epinephrine

Association Between Tracheal Intubation During Adult In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest and Survival. Tracheal intubation is common during adult in-hospital cardiac arrest, but little is known about the association between tracheal intubation and survival in this setting.To determine whether tracheal intubation during adult in-hospital cardiac arrest is associated with survival to hospital discharge.Observational cohort study of adult patients who had an in-hospital cardiac arrest from January 2000 (...) through December 2014 included in the Get With The Guidelines-Resuscitation registry, a US-based multicenter registry of in-hospital cardiac arrest. Patients who had an invasive airway in place at the time of cardiac arrest were excluded.

). The incidences of blood-product use, infection, and serious adverse events, as well as 28-day mortality, did not differ significantly between groups.Among comatose children who survived in-hospital cardiac arrest, therapeutic hypothermia, as compared with therapeutic normothermia, did not confer a significant benefit in survival with a favorable functional outcome at 1 year. (Funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute; THAPCA-IH ClinicalTrials.gov number, NCT00880087 .). (...) Therapeutic Hypothermia after In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest in Children. Targeted temperature management is recommended for comatose adults and children after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest; however, data on temperature management after in-hospital cardiac arrest are limited.In a trial conducted at 37 children's hospitals, we compared two temperature interventions in children who had had in-hospital cardiac arrest.

“Freeze, Don’t Move”: How to Arrest a Suspect in Heart Failure – A Review on Available GRK2 Inhibitors Cardiovascular disease and heart failure (HF) still collect the largest toll of death in western societies and all over the world. A growing number of molecular mechanisms represent possible targets for new therapeutic strategies, which can counteract the metabolic and structural changes observed in the failing heart. G protein-coupled receptor kinase 2 (GRK2) is one of such targets (...) for which experimental and clinical evidence are established. Indeed, several strategies have been carried out in place to interface with the known GRK2 mechanisms of action in the failing heart. This review deals with results from basic and preclinical studies. It shows different strategies to inhibit GRK2 in HF in vivo (βARK-ct gene therapy, treatment with gallein, and treatment with paroxetine) and in vitro (RNA aptamer, RKIP, and peptide-based inhibitors). These strategies are based either

135. Public-Access Defibrillation and Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest in Japan. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Public-Access Defibrillation and Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest in Japan. Early defibrillation plays a key role in improving survival in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrests due to ventricular fibrillation (ventricular-fibrillation cardiac arrests), and the use of publicly accessible automated external defibrillators (AEDs) can help to reduce the time to defibrillation for such patients. However, the effect of dissemination of public-access AEDs for ventricular-fibrillation cardiac (...) arrest at the population level has not been extensively investigated.From a nationwide, prospective, population-based registry of patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in Japan, we identified patients from 2005 through 2013 with bystander-witnessed ventricular-fibrillation arrests of presumed cardiac origin in whom resuscitation was attempted. The primary outcome measure was survival at 1 month with a favorable neurologic outcome (Cerebral Performance Category of 1 or 2, on a scale from 1

140. Induction of Therapeutic Hypothermia During Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Using a Rapid Infusion of Cold Saline: The RINSE Trial (Rapid Infusion of Cold Normal Saline) Full Text available with Trip Pro

Induction of Therapeutic Hypothermia During Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Using a Rapid Infusion of Cold Saline: The RINSE Trial (Rapid Infusion of Cold Normal Saline) Patients successfully resuscitated by paramedics from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest often have severe neurologic injury. Laboratory and observational clinical reports have suggested that induction of therapeutic hypothermia during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) may improve neurologic outcomes. One technique for induction (...) of mild therapeutic hypothermia during CPR is a rapid infusion of large-volume cold crystalloid fluid.In this multicenter, randomized, controlled trial we assigned adults with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest undergoing CPR to either a rapid intravenous infusion of up to 2 L of cold saline or standard care. The primary outcome measure was survival at hospital discharge; secondary end points included return of a spontaneous circulation. The trial was closed early (at 48% recruitment target) due
