Approach to cardiopulmonary resuscitation induced consciousness, an emergency medicine perspective
Awareness of CPR-induced consciousness by UK paramedics
TLDR
There is a clear need for further education on CPR-IC in order for paramedics to better manage it when presented with it in practice, and nearly half of the study participants were not aware of the phenomenon, and few have had formal training on the phenomenon.
onsciousness induced during cardiopulmonary resuscitation : An bservational study
TLDR
Although CPRIC is uncommon, its occurrence is increasing and may be associated with improved outcomes and the appropriate management of CPRIC requires further evaluation.
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Induced Consciousness: A Case Report
TLDR
A 49-year-old man who presented with ischemic chest pain, and then had a witnessed in-hospital cardiac arrest, gave intermittent signs of consciousness despite the absence of return of spontaneous circulation during the CPR.
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Induced Consciousness A Case Report in an Elderly Patient
TLDR
The case of an 89-year-old male patient who received CPR after a cardiac arrest is presented, and the use of sedative and analgesic drugs such as ketamine may be the best choice to manage cardiopulmonary resuscitation-induced consciousness, as an alternative to physical restraint.

TLDR
A case study done by paramedics in the field illustrating the need for sedation in a patient whose presentation was consistent with CPR induced consciousness, challenging providers of high quality CPR during cardiac arrest resuscitation.

Prolonged Retention of Awareness During Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation for Asystolic Cardiac Arrest
TLDR
It is possible to retain a high level of awareness following cardiac arrest, particularly with effective CPR, and appropriate decisions to be made regarding the use of sedation and the length of resuscitative efforts are made.

TLDR
There is insufficient evidence to support or refute the use of mechanical CPR devices in settings of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest and during ambulance transport, and while there is some low quality evidence suggesting that mechanical CPR can improve consistency and reduce interruptions in chest compressions, there is no evidence that Mechanical CPR devices improve survival.

TLDR
The case of a 57-year-old man with a history of ischemic heart disease who presented to the emergency department with an acute myocardial infarction and hypotension, who required physical restraints, sedation, and paralysis for personnel to perform endotracheal intubation and facilitate treatment.
Abstract 236: A Multi Center Study of Awareness During Resuscitation
TLDR
Auditory and/or visual experiences during unconsciousness may be a relatively common phenomenon and may indicate that consciousness may not cease as expected with cessation of heartbeat during CA.
A hemodynamic profile for consciousness during cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
TLDR
A 62-yr-old man experienced cardiac arrest while being evaluated for heart failure after heart transplantation and his mean arterial blood pressure and heart rate were correlated with consciousness during cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
Is there a role for adrenaline during cardiopulmonary resuscitation?
TLDR
Appropriately powered prospective, placebo-controlled trials of adrenaline in cardiac arrest are essential if the role of this drug is to be defined reliably.
