BACKGROUND Several characteristics of the ventricular fibrillation (VF) waveform have been found predictive of successful defibrillation and hypothesized to reflect the myocardial energy state. In an open-chest swine model of VF, we modeled "average CPR" using extracorporeal circulation (ECC) and assessed the time course of coronary blood flow, myocardial(More)
BACKGROUND Effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a critical component of the pre-hospital treatment of cardiac arrest victims. Mechanical chest compression (MCC) devices enable the delivery of MCC waveforms that could not be delivered effectively by hand. While chest compression generated blood flow has been studied for more than 50 years, the relation(More)
