OBJECTIVES Little is known about the factors that influence survival following in-hospital resuscitation, but previous investigations have suggested that in-hospital resuscitations outside of regular working hours are associated with worse survival rates. MATERIAL AND METHODS In-hospital cardiac arrest teams at our hospital were instructed to complete a(More)
Es wird über den Fall eines 76-jährigen Patienten berichtet, der den ersten Schock seiner tragbaren Defibrillatorweste erhalten hat. Aufgrund einer Endokarditis war 4 Wochen zuvor die vor Jahren bei fortgeschrittener systolischer Herzinsuffizienz implantierte kardiale Resynchronisationstherapie mit integriertem Defibrillator (CRT-D) explantiert worden.

BACKGROUND Little is known about the incidence and risk factors for progression to pacemaker dependency or the need for cardiac resynchronization in typical patients with an implanted defibrillator with regard to an alternative implantation of a subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD). STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS After retrospective analysis of 291 patients with first(More)
INTRODUCTION It still remains unknown why there are so poor rates of lay-resuscitation in Germany. We wanted to find out who observes the out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA) in Germany. PATIENTS AND METHODS All patients who were admitted in our hospital between January, 1st 2008 and December, 31st 2013 following non-traumatic OHCA were identified and(More)
OBJECTIVES AND BACKGROUND Despite a generally broad use of vascular closure devices (VCDs), it remains unclear whether they can also be used in victims from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) treated with mild therapeutic hypothermia (MTH). METHODS All victims from OHCA who received immediate coronary angiography after OHCA between January 1(st) 2008(More)
INTRODUCTION Despite an increasing attention to living wills, the effects of such living wills on patient care in the emergency departments remains unknown. MATERIAL AND METHODS All patients who were admitted to our emergency department between September 24th, 2014 and November 23th, 2014 were asked, whether they have signed living wills previously and if(More)
Background There is hardly any evidence about the influence of living wills on acute life-threatening disease like out-of-hospital cardiac-arrest (OHCA). We therefore initiated this study to quantify the percentage of victims of OHCA who's living wills are available during post-resuscitation care. Methods All victims of OHCA who were admitted to our(More)
