INTRODUCTION Endotracheal intubation (ETI) is currently considered superior to supraglottic airway devices (SGA) for survival and other outcomes among adults with non-traumatic out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). We aimed to determine if the research supports this conclusion by conducting a systematic review. METHODS We searched the MEDLINE, Scopus and(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to investigate the effect of known heart disease on post-out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) survival outcomes, and its association with factors influencing survival. METHODS This was an observational, retrospective study involving an OHCA database from seven Asian countries in 2009-2012. Heart disease was defined as a documented(More)

Magnesium is the 4th most abundant intracellular cation in the body. Normal adult plasma concentration ranges from 1.7 to 2.5 mg/dL. Most of the body’s reserves are found in the skeletal bone mass. Hypomagnesaemia is a common electrolyte abnormality seen in around 12% hospitalized patients and has an incidence as high as 60 to 65 % in Intensive Care Unit(More)
