OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to assess the hemodynamic status of survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). BACKGROUND The global prognosis after successfully resuscitated patients with OHCA remains poor. Clinical studies describing the hemodynamic status of survivors of OHCA and its impact on prognosis are lacking. METHODS Among 165(More)
Constant flow insufflation of oxygen (CFIO) through a Boussignac multichannel endotracheal tube has been reported to be an efficient ventilatory method during chest massage for cardiac arrest. Patients resuscitated for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest were randomly assigned to standard endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation (MV; n = 457) or use of(More)
Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest remains a clinical problem with a survival rate of less than 5%. Prompt initiation of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and rapid delivery of advanced cardiac-life procedures are required. Combined in-hospital management by experienced cardiologists and intensive care specialists is recommended. Acute coronary-artery occlusion is(More)
BACKGROUND Internal cardiac compressions are more efficient than closed chest compressions (CCC) in cardiac arrest (CA). AIM OF THE STUDY To evaluate the prehospital feasibility of performing a new method of minimally invasive direct cardiac massage (MID-CM TheraCardia Inc.). METHODS Prospective non-randomized open study, after ethical committee(More)
OBJECTIVE The clinical features of coronary artery spasm as a cause of cardiac arrest were determined in a prospective study on out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). METHODS Coronary angiography was performed at admission in 300 consecutive patients with no obvious non-cardiac cause of OHCA. In survivors with no or minimal coronary artery stenosis, a(More)
STUDY DESIGN The French system of Samu-Smur allows the admission of patients directly in intensive care unit (ICU). The aim of this study is to examine the utility of the Samu-Smur with regard to such direct admission (DA). PATIENTS AND METHODS This retrospective study was performed by the Samu of Paris. Patient details were gathered from three reports:(More)
