Partnering with survivors & families to determine research priorities for adult out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: A James Lind Alliance Priority Setting Partnership.

Resusc Plus 2021 Sep 7;7:100148. Epub 2021 Jul 7.

Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Background: Research priority setting in health care has historically been done by expert health care providers and researchers and has not involved patients, family or the public. Survivors & family members have been particularly absent from this process in the field of resuscitation research and specifically adult out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). As such, we sought to conduct a priority setting exercise in partnership with survivors, lay responders and their families in order to ensure that their priorities were visible. Read More

Open Access Emerg Med 2021 12;13:305-310. Epub 2021 Jul 12.

Emergency and Disaster Medicine, University of Toyama, Toyama, Japan.

Purpose: To obtain effective systemic blood flow and coronary perfusion by chest compressions during cardiopulmonary resuscitation, it is recommended that the interruption time of chest compressions be kept to a minimum, and that the chest compression fraction (CCF) should be kept high. In this study, we examined the effects of advanced airway management by paramedics in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) cases on CCF and on return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) before arrival at the hospital.

Participants And Methods: A total of 283 adult, non-traumatic OHCA cases who were in cardiopulmonary arrest at the time of EMS contact between April 2015 and March 2017 were registered for this study. Read More

New volumetric capnography-derived parameter: a potentially valuable tool for detecting hyperventilation during cardiopulmonary resuscitation in a porcine model.

J Thorac Dis 2021 Jun;13(6):3467-3477

Emergency Department, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, Beijing, China.

Background: Volumetric capnography is increasingly being applied in cardiopulmonary resuscitation. However, during cardiopulmonary resuscitation, the abnormal ventilation state affects the monitoring effect of the most commonly used capnography-derived parameter, the partial carbon dioxide end-tidal pressure (PetCO). In this study, we evaluated the ability of a new volumetric capnography-derived parameter, the ratio between the PetCO and the volume of carbon dioxide (CO) eliminated per min and per kilogram of body weight, for detecting hyperventilation during cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
