Important adverse effects of bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) are well known. We describe the number of nonmedical professional CPR-related complications in patients surviving cardiac arrest, as assessed by chest radiograph. Within 2 yr, all consecutive patients admitted to the department of emergency medicine at a university hospital who had a witnessed, nontraumatic, normothermic cardiac arrest were studied. Radiologically evaluated adverse effects were compared with Mann-Whitney… Expand

ConditionsSudden Cardiac Arrest
InterventionOther
The utility of computed tomography to evaluate thoracic complications after cardiopulmonary resuscitation
TLDR
Complications from OHCA CPR were high with 29.2% of CT imaged patients having rib fractures and 8.8% having pneumothoraces, and CT imaging of the chest should be considered for detecting post-CPR complications. Expand
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) complications encountered in forensic autopsy cases
TLDR
This study offers a proposal aiming at making a contribution to develop Guidelines specifying whether a particular CPR-related complication is in all likelihood unavoidable or not, and the findings are in accordance with other similar studies reported in the literature referring to the classic external CPR. Expand
Early whole-body CT for treatment guidance in patients with return of spontaneous circulation after cardiac arrest
TLDR
An early WBCT is feasible and provides added diagnostic value for patients with ROSC after non-traumaticCA and return of spontaneous circulation after cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Expand
CPR-related injuries after manual or mechanical chest compressions with the LUCAS™ device: a multicentre study of victims after unsuccessful resuscitation.
TLDR
In patients with unsuccessful CPR after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, rib fractures were more frequent after mechanical CPR but there was no difference in the incidence of sternal fractures. Expand
Chest Compression Injuries Detected via Routine Post-arrest Care in Patients Who Survive to Admission after Out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrest
TLDR
In patients who survived OHCA to admission, longer duration of compressions and use of CT during the post-arrest course were associated positively with documented compression injury, which is likely to be largely insignificant in terms of length of recovery. Expand
[Frequency of skeletal chest injuries associated with cardiopulmonary resuscitation: forensic autopsy].
TLDR
This study shows a low incidence of rib and sternal fracture after closed-chest compression in the treatment of cardiac arrest in forensic autopsy cases. Expand
Alternative ventilation strategies in cardiopulmonary resuscitation
TLDR
The laryngeal mask airway and esophageal Combitube proved to be effective alternatives in providing oxygenation and ventilation to the patient in cardiac arrest in the prehospital arena in North America, and a recent device that affects the relative influence of positive pressure ventilation on the hemodynamics during cardiac arrest has been introduced. Expand
Chest wall injuries following cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
TLDR
This study incorporates all cases of in and out-of-hospital CPR and does not discriminate for the CPR provider or technique employed, therefore, providing a current and representative overview of the incidence of rib and sternal fractures in non-survivors of CPR. Expand
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation and management of cardiac arrest
TLDR
Care after cardiac arrest includes controlled reoxygenation, therapeutic hypothermia for comatose survivors, percutaneous coronary intervention, circulatory support, and control of blood-glucose levels and seizures. Expand
Airway techniques and ventilation strategies
TLDR
Supraglottic airway devices are a logical alternative to tracheal intubation when cardiopulmonary resuscitation is undertaken by individuals who are not highly skilled and experienced intubators. Expand

Bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Concerns about mouth-to-mouth contact.
TLDR
Concerns regarding mouth-to-mouth ventilation appear to create substantial barriers to performance of bystander CPR, and intensified educational efforts and investigations of new approaches to bystanding CPR are warranted. Expand
Effect of out-of-hospital pediatric endotracheal intubation on survival and neurological outcome: a controlled clinical trial.
TLDR
The addition of out-of-hospital ETI to a paramedic scope of practice that already includes BVM did not improve survival or neurological outcome of pediatric patients treated in an urban EMS system. Expand
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation by chest compression alone or with mouth-to-mouth ventilation.
TLDR
The outcome after CPR with chest compression alone is similar to that after chest compression with mouth-to-mouth ventilation, andchest compression alone may be the preferred approach for bystanders inexperienced in CPR. Expand
Efficacy of daily routine chest radiographs in intubated, mechanically ventilated patients
TLDR
These data demonstrate that, while a large percentage of radiographs will not disclose new findings, routine daily studies have a substantial impact on the management of intubated, mechanically ventilated patients in the ICU. Expand
Standards and guidelines for cardiopulmonary resuscitation and emergency cardiac care.
TLDR
The integration of scientists, researchers, clinicians, and program implementors during the past 25 years in the interest of saving lives has made possible the broad national acceptance and uniformity of teaching and performance of CPR. Expand

In a prospective study of the complications of cardiac resuscitation, 705 cases were autopsied to identify the cause of death and the pathologic findings attributable to cardiac resuscitation.Expand
Prediction of Difficult Mask Ventilation
TLDR
Being able to more accurately predict DMV may improve the safety of airway management and prevent or reverse signs of inadequate ventilation during positive-pressure mask ventilation under general anesthesia. Expand
Risk factors for developing pneumonia within 48 hours of intubation.
TLDR
It is emphasized that risk factors for pneumonia change during the intubation period, and preventing pneumonia requires a combined approach. Expand
Accuracy and efficacy of chest radiography in the intensive care unit.
In summary, the chest radiograph has only moderate accuracy in visualizing opacification caused by cardiopulmonary abnormalities and may be quite nonspecific as to etiology, whereas it has highExpand
Decay in quality of closed-chest compressions over time.
TLDR
Because CPR providers could not recognize their inability to provide proper compressions, cardiac arrest team leaders should carefully monitor compression adequacy during CPR to assure maximally effective care for patients receiving CPR. Expand
