Out-of-Hospital Transesophageal Echocardiogram for Cardiac Arrest Resuscitation: The Initial Case
TLDR
Further research needs to be performed to determine the clinical benefit, indications, and curriculum for emergency providers to successfully deliver this potentially valuable resource prior to widespread adoption of transesophageal echocardiogram during cardiac arrest.
Ultrasound in Cardiopulmonary Arrest: State of Art
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to provide the state-of-the-art use of the ultrasound in SCA, and to provide a better prognosis in some subgroups.
Prognostic value of point-of-care ultrasound during cardiac arrest: a systematic review
TLDR
Evaluation of cardiac motion on transthoracic echocardiogram is a valuable tool in the prediction of short-term cardiac resuscitation outcomes, and it is reasonable to apply point-of-care ultrasound to cardiopulmonary resuscitation as long as its use does not interrupt resuscitation.
Transesophageal echocardiography in patients with cardiac arrest: from high-quality chest compression to effective resuscitation
TLDR
An echo-guided approach to CPR is proposed that can improve the effectiveness of CPR guiding the rescuer to optimize or correct chest compression and decompression by directly examining the movements of the cardiac walls and valve leaflets.
Point-of-care ultrasound in cardiorespiratory arrest (POCUS-CA): narrative review article
TLDR
A narrative review of the literature aims to expose the usefulness of ultrasound in the setting of cardiorespiratory arrest as a tool that allows making a rapid diagnosis and making decisions about reversible causes of this entity.
Cardiac Thrombus Formation During Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation for Cardiac Arrest: Is It Time for Ultrasound-Enhanced Algorithms?
TLDR
Cardiac ultrasound plays a key role in the management of CA patients, even though cardiac ultrasound is not ready for a routine use during CPR, the present study confirms.
Rhythms and prognosis of patients with cardiac arrest, emphasis on pseudo-pulseless electrical activity: another reason to use ultrasound in emergency rooms in Colombia
TLDR
There is a significant difference for ROSC and survival at discharge prognosis among the cardiac arrest rhythms, with better outcomes for VF/VT and pPEA.

TLDR
There is a significant difference for ROSC and survival at discharge prognosis among the cardiac arrest rhythms, with better outcomes for VF/VT and pPEA.

CRITICAL CARE ECHO ROUNDS: Echo in cardiac arrest
TLDR
The reversible causes of cardiac arrest are reviewed with associated echocardiography findings and a 71-year-old patient underwent right upper lobectomy for lung adenocarcinoma is reviewed.
Outcome in cardiac arrest patients found to have cardiac standstill on the bedside emergency department echocardiogram.
  • M. Blaivas, J. Fox
  • Medicine
    Academic emergency medicine : official journal of the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine
  • 2001
TLDR
Patients presenting with cardiac standstill on bedside echocardiogram do not survive to leave the ED regardless of their electrical rhythms, a finding that may be an additional marker for cessation of resuscitative efforts.
Cardiac Movement Identified on Prehospital Echocardiography Predicts Outcome in Cardiac Arrest Patients

TLDR
The results support the idea of focused echocardiography as an additional criterion in the evaluation of outcome in CPR patients and demonstrate its feasibility in the prehospital setting.
Echocardiographic observations during in hospital cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
TLDR
An echocardiographic examination is feasible during CPR and may offer useful information in the management of the individual patients with cardiac arrest, and the appearance of intracardiac coalescent echo contrast in patients with unrelenting cardiac arrest was associated with a failed outcome.
Echocardiography integrated ACLS protocol versus conventional cardiopulmonary resuscitation in patients with pulseless electrical activity cardiac arrest.
TLDR
Bedside echocardiography can identify some reversible causes of PEA, however, there are no significant changes in survival outcome between the echo group and those with traditional CPR, and no significant difference in resuscitation results between Groups A and B observed.
Benefit of cardiac sonography for estimating the early term survival of the cardiopulmonary arrest patients.
TLDR
Use of USG during CPR in order to evaluate cardiac contractility, increases the success rate of accomplished CPR.
