Favorable neurological survival in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OOHCA) may be influenced by cerebral perfusion during resuscitation. Cerebral oximetry (COx) provides a portable, noninvasive, real-time index of cerebral perfusion that has not been studied in OOHCA. This study examined the feasibility of using COx to measure cerebral perfusion during(More)

During August through September 2009, a surge in emergency department (ED) visits for 2009 pandemic influenza A (pH1N1) illness occurred in Georgia, particularly among children. To understand surge preparedness and capacity, we obtained influenza-like illness (ILI) ED visit data from the Georgia State Electronic Notifiable Disease Surveillance System(More)
Thrombolytic agents may have clinically significant beneficial effects in cardiac arrest. The application of thrombolytic drugs in the setting of current and antecedent cardiopulmonary resuscitation is well documented; however, it has not been systematically studied nor has it been widely considered. We provide a literature review of thrombolytic agents and(More)
