Current research highlights the role of microcirculatory disorders in post-cardiac arrest patients. Affected microcirculation shows not only dissociation from systemic hemodynamics but also strong connection to outcome of these patients. However, only few studies evaluated microcirculation directly during cardiac arrest (CA) and cardiopulmonary(More)
Cardiac arrest represents a leading cause of mortality and morbidity in developed countries. Extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) increases the chances for a beneficial outcome in victims of refractory cardiac arrest. However, ECPR and post-cardiac arrest care are affected by high mortality rates due to multi-organ failure syndrome, which is(More)
The effect of pulsatile blood flow on microcirculation during extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) is not elucidated; therefore, we designed an observational study comparing sublingual microcirculation in patients with refractory cardiac arrest (CA) with spontaneously pulsatile or low/nonpulsatile blood flow after treatment with ECPR.(More)
