Use, Outcomes and Policy on the Placement of Automated External Defibrillators on Commercial Aircraft for the Management of In-flight Cardiac Arrest; A Scoping Review
Policy regarding AED placement on commercial aircraft is reviewed, summarising reported incidence and outcomes of AED utilisation for individuals experiencing an in-flight cardiac arrest (IFCA).
A review of ventilation in adult out‐of‐hospital cardiac arrest
- MedicineJournal of the American College of Emergency Physicians open
The goals of this narrative review are to evaluate the available evidence regarding the role of ventilation in out‐of‐hospital cardiac arrest resuscitation and to provide recommendations for future directions.
Enhanced external counterpulsation improves cardiac function in Beagles after cardiopulmonary resuscitation
- Medicine, BiologyBrazilian journal of medical and biological research = Revista brasileira de pesquisas medicas e biologicas
EECP improved the hemodynamics of beagle dogs and increased MBF, subsequently improving cardiac function and ultimately improving the survival time of animals after ROSC.
#Epi: There is no place for the use of intravenous epinephrine as a standard component of cardiac arrest resuscitation care.
The CanROC Epinephrine Dose: Optimal versus Standard Evaluation (EpiDOSE) trial is a multicentre, double-blinded RCT across sites in Canada that will compare the current standard dosing of epinephrine to a low cumulative dose (max 2 mg).
A better understanding of ambulance personnel’s attitude towards real-time resuscitation feedback
- MedicineInternational journal for quality in health care : journal of the International Society for Quality in Health Care
Prejudices and concerns seem to decrease with continued use of the real-time feedback system, and the system's use in daily routine results in better evaluation than the expectations of unequipped personnel.

Optimizing Intensive Care in Stroke: A European Perspective
- Medicine, Psychology
The concept of critical care in stroke is a controversial issue. The question of whether full-scale critical care management of stroke improves patient outcome is still open and probably depends on th
Collaborative overview of randomised trials of antiplatelet therapy Prevention of death, myocardial infarction, and stroke by prolonged antiplatelet therapy in various categories of patients
There was no appreciable evidence that either a higher aspirin dose or any other antiplatelet regimen was more effective than medium dose aspirin in preventing vascular events, so in each of the four main high risk categories overall mortality was significantly reduced.
The Composition of Gas Given by Mouth-to-Mouth Ventilation During CPR
The gas given by mouth-to-mouth ventilation is a hypercarbic and hypoxic mixture compared with room air, which is the only circumstance in which a hyper Carbic and Hypoxic gas is given as therapy.
The palpation of pulses
In 554 anaesthetised patients, the times taken to separately palpate and identify each of the carotid, radial, brachial and femoral pulses were recorded and it is demonstrated that in the operating theatre environment the identification of the radial pulse is the most rapid and reliable.
Disinfection and inactivation of the human T lymphotropic virus type III/Lymphadenopathy-associated virus.

The results indicate that alcohols hypochlorite the detergent NP-40 (but not Tween-20) H202 phenolics and paraformaldehyde are all effective inactivators of HTLV-III/LAV at concentrations well below those usually formulated for use as a disinfectant or in laboratories.
Bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation : concerns about mouth-to-mouth contact
Concerns regarding mouth-to-mouth ventilation appear to create substantial barriers to performance of bystander CPR.
