BACKGROUND Recently, hands only CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) has been proposed as an alternative to standard CPR for bystanders. The present study was performed to identify the effect of basic life support (BLS) training on laypersons' willingness in performing standard CPR and hands only CPR. METHODS The participants for this study were(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of the present study was to investigate whether the combined use of transcricothyroid membrane ultrasonography and ultrasonographic evaluation for pleural sliding is useful for verifying endotracheal intubation in the ED. METHODS We performed a prospective clinical trial in the ED from January to July 2008. All patients enrolled(More)
OBJECTIVES In an attempt to begin ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) treatment more quickly (referred to as door-to-balloon [DTB] time) by minimizing preventable delays in electrocardiogram (ECG) interpretation, cardiac catheterization laboratory (CCL) activation was changed from activation by the emergency physician (code heart I) to(More)
OBJECTIVES This study was designed to assess changes in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) quality and rescuer fatigue when rescuers are provided with a break during continuous chest compression CPR (CCC-CPR). METHODS The present prospective, randomized crossover study involved 63 emergency medical technician trainees. The subjects performed three(More)
The aim of this study was to analyze the characteristics of and responses to a maritime disaster, by reviewing the events surrounding the accidental collision of a high-speed passenger ship in South Korea. Of the 215 boarded passengers on a high-speed passenger ship sailing from Fukuoka to Busan, we retrospectively examined information of 114 victims of the(More)
In a previous study, we examined the physiological responses of male Sprague-Dawley rats over a 4-week exposure to concrete and clay cages. No general toxicological changes were observed in rats exposed to either of the two cage types in summer. Under winter conditions, however, various general toxicological effects were detected in rats housed in concrete(More)
OBJECTIVES When performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), the 2010 American Heart Association guidelines recommend a chest compression rate of at least 100 min, whereas the 2010 European Resuscitation Council guidelines recommend a rate of between 100 and 120 min. The aim of this study was to examine the rate of chest compression that fulfilled(More)

Current guideline recommends that immediate coronary angiography (CAG) should be considered in all postcardiac arrest patients in whom acute coronary syndrome is suspected. In the setting of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), obtaining clinical data such as chest discomfort and medical diseases associated with acute coronary syndrome can be difficult.(More)
OBJECTIVES The hydraulic height control systems of hospital beds provide convenience and shock absorption. However, movements in a hydraulic bed may reduce the effectiveness of chest compressions. This study investigated the effects of hydraulic bed movement on chest compressions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-eight participants were recruited for this(More)
