            Bystanders can help more cardiac arrest victims survive 5

            Only 8% of Americans survive cardiac arrest outside a hospital, but that percentage could increase significantly if bystanders recognize cardiac arrest and perform simple lifesaving tasks, says UVA Health physician William J. Brady, MD. Credit: UVA Health Only 8% of Americans survive cardiac arrest outside a hospital, but that percentage …

              Risk factors of MA in patients treated with therapeutic hyperthermia after cardiac arrest

              Risk factors of MA in patients treated with therapeutic hyperthermia after cardiac arrest 6

              Credit: CC0 Public Domain Researchers showed that 20-50% of patients developed an irregular heartbeat that required defibrillation during the active cooling phase of therapeutic hypothermia following an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Only patients with cardiogenic shock developed malignant arrhythmias (MA), and the use of epinephrine in the context of intense cooling …

                Optimized placement of defibrillators may improve cardiac arrest outcomes

                Optimized placement of defibrillators may improve cardiac arrest outcomes 7

                Credit: CC0 Public Domain Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are often placed in areas of low risk and may be unavailable during certain times of the day. Determining the optimal location for AEDs may lead to increased defibrillation by bystanders and increased survival in those experiencing out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), according …
