ABSTRACT
Artificial respiration and cardiac massage were successful in tile resuscitation of 4 out of 11 surgical patients who had cardiac arrests. More patients were successfully resuscitated by means of closed-chest cardiac massage than by direct cardiac massage. Four patients received closed-chest cardiac massage; three survived. Of the six patients who received direct cardiac massage, only one patient survived. The one patient given both closed-chest and direct cardiac massage did not survive. There was no clinical evidence of traumatic injury to the hearts of the three patients who received closed-chest cardiac massage.

    Purpose: To evaluate the outcomes, including long-term survival, after cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in mechanically ventilated patients. Methods: We analyzed Medicare data from 1994 to 2005 to identify beneficiaries who underwent in-hospital CPR. We then identified a subgroup receiving...

    Sudden cardiac death is a major clinical problem, causing 300 000 to 400 000 deaths annually and 63% of all cardiac deaths. Despite the overall decrease in cardiovascular mortality, the proportion of cardiovascular death from sudden cardiac death has remained constant. Survival rates among...

    Cardiopulmonary resuscitation success rates have not changed in 30 years. Patient outcomes may improve if changes in a patient's condition are addressed at the onset of subtle deteriorations, rather than at the point of cardiac arrest. The rapid response team involves early intervention that...

    We examined the relation between age and outcomes in patients treated for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in Seattle, Wash. Considering all out-of-hospital cardiac arrests treated by paramedics over a recent 5-year period, 386 (27%) of 1405 consecutive patients aged 70 years or older were...

    Assisted (interactive) breathing is generally preferred to controlled breaths in patients on mechanical ventilators. Assisted breaths allow the patient's respiratory muscles to be used, and ventilatory muscle atrophy can be prevented. Moreover, the respiratory drive of the patient does not have...
