Cardiopulmonary resuscitation in prone position: a simplified method for outpatients.

Prone cardiopulmonary resuscitation: Relevance in current times

It seems to be a reliable method of providing resuscitation and all health-care workers should be well versed with it.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation in the Prone Position in the Operating Room or in the Intensive Care Unit: A Systematic Review

Data from reviewed clinical studies confirm that CPR in the prone position is a reasonable alternative to supine CPR when the latter cannot be immediately implemented, and the airway is already secured.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation in prone position: A scoping review

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation during the COVID-19 pandemic in Spain

Reanimación cardiopulmonar en prono a propósito de un caso

The case of a 72-year-old patient with history of stage IV breast cancer who presented acute spinal cord compression due to a vertebral fracture at T10 level is reported, and prone CPR manoeuvres were started with recovery of spontaneous circulation.

Optimizing hemodynamic function during cardiopulmonary resuscitation

Head-up CPR and the use of REBOA during CPR are novel methods that might improve cerebral perfusion during CPR; both techniques do not yet await clinical testing.



Cardiopulmonary resuscitation in prone position: a simplified method for outpatients.

Resuscitating an idea: prone CPR.

A preliminary study of cardiopulmonary resuscitation by circumferential compression of the chest with use of a pneumatic vest.

In this preliminary study, vest CPR, despite its late application, successfully increased aortic pressure and coronary perfusion pressure, and there was an insignificant trend toward a greater likelihood of the return of spontaneous circulation with vest CPR than with continued manual CPR.

CPR: the P stands for plumber's helper.

A 65-year-old Iranian man with severe triple-vessel coronary artery disease documented by cardiac catheterization in Iran in 1985 is described, who collapsed in front of his family and remained pulseless and breathless for several hours.

Phased chest and abdominal compression-decompression. A new option for cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

Phased chest and abdominal compression-decompression substantially increased hemodynamic efficacy of CPR and outcome in terms of successful resuscitation, 48-hour survival, and cerebral recovery.


Cardiac arrest in Ontario: circumstances, community response, role of prehospital defibrillation and predictors of survival.

To improve survival rates after cardiac arrest ambulance response times must be reduced and the frequency of bystander-initiated CPR increased, once these changes are in place a beneficial effect from advanced manoeuvres such as prehospital defibrillation may be seen.

Closed-chest cardiac massage.

Anyone, anywhere, can now initiate cardiac resuscitative procedures to give not only mouth-to-nose artificial respiration but also adequate cardiac massage without thoracotomy.
