Background—Acute coronary occlusion is the leading cause of cardiac arrest. Because of limited data, the indications and timing of coronary angiography and angioplasty in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest are controversial. Using data from the Parisian Region Out of hospital Cardiac ArresT prospective registry, we performed an analysis to assess the effect of an invasive strategy on hospital survival. Methods and Results—Between January 2003 and December 2008, 714 patients with out…

Early Coronary Angiography and Survival After Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest

Among initial survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest caused by VF or pulseless VT, early coronary angiography was associated with higher odds of survival to discharge and favorable neurological outcome.

The role of coronary angiography in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients in the absence of ST-segment elevation: A literature review

This literature review will provide the current knowledge and gaps in the literature regarding optimal care for patients successfully resuscitated from OHCA in the absence of ST-segment elevation and will primarily focus on the role and timing of coronary angiography in this high-risk patient population.

Distance to invasive heart centre, performance of acute coronary angiography, and angioplasty and associated outcome in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: a nationwide study

Admission to an invasive heart centre and regional performance of acute CAG/PCI were associated with improved survival in OHCA patients, whereas distance to the invasive centre was not, and these results support a centralized strategy for immediate post-resuscitation care inOHCA patients.

Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survivors sent for emergency angiography: a clinical score for predicting acute myocardial infarction

It is suggested that fewer than half of patients with OHCA undergoing emergency coronary angiography present with AMI, which might be improved by a simple score using post-resuscitation ECG and simple clinical criteria.

Six-Month Outcome of Emergency Percutaneous Coronary Intervention in Resuscitated Patients After Cardiac Arrest Complicating ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction

In patients with resuscitated cardiac arrest complicating acute myocardial infarction, prompt pre Hospital management and early revascularization were associated with a 54% survival rate at 6 months, and a strategy including adequate prehospital management, early rev vascularization, and specific care in dedicated intensive care units should be strongly considered.

Review of A Large Clinical Series: Coronary Angiography Predicts Improved Outcome Following Cardiac Arrest: Propensity-adjusted Analysis

CATH is more likely to be performed in certain patients and identifies a significant number of high-grade stenoses in this population of patients and was independently associated with good outcome.

Predicting survival with good neurological recovery at hospital admission after successful resuscitation of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: the OHCA score.

The outcome can be accurately predicted after OHCA using variables that are readily available at ICU admission and predictive of poor outcomes (death or severe neurological impairment), according to a simple tool for predicting survival with good neurological function.

Prehospital termination of resuscitation in cases of refractory out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

In this validation study, the BLS and ALS termination- of-resuscitation rules performed well in identifying patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest who have little or no chance of survival.

Long-term outcomes of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest after successful early defibrillation.

Long-term survival among patients who have undergone rapid defibrillation after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is similar to that among age-, sex-, and disease-matched patients who did not have out- of- hospital cardiac arrest, and the quality of life among the majority of survivors isSimilar to that of the general population.

Regional variation in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest incidence and outcome.

In this study involving 10 geographic regions in North America, there were significant and important regional differences in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest incidence and outcome.
