Sudden cardiac arrest
is lethal within minutes if left untreated and rapid initiation of CPR improves survival.
[ClickPress, Tue Aug 13 2019] This report analyzes the current and future scenario of the global Cardiac Arrest
Treatment Market .
Holmberg, M.D., M.P.H., from the Aarhus University Hospital in Denmark, and colleagues estimated the incidence of index pulseless in-hospital cardiac arrest
based on hospital-level characteristics in all U.S.
Although cardiac arrest
in children is far less common than in adults, each year about 7,000 children in the United States experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest
, according to the American Heart Association.
According to a new https://academic.oup.com/eurheartj/advance-article/doi/10.1093/eurheartj/ehz297/5492041#135856443 by the https://www.escardio.org/The-ESC/Press-Office/Press-releases/Women-are-less-likely-to-be-resuscitated-and-survive-a-cardiac-arrest-than-men, women are less likely to receive help from bystanders if they suffer from a cardiac arrest
outside of a hospital environment.
A study published in the journal, 'European Heart Journal', found that people did not recognise women who collapsed were having a cardiac arrest
, leading to delays in calling the emergency services and delays in providing resuscitation treatment.
According to (https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/03/190317150427.htm) research presented by the European Sudden Cardiac Arrest
network (ESCAPE-NET) at the EHRA 2019 conference, high doses of nifedipine (60 mg per day and up) were linked to an increased risk of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest
I was speaking to one of the doctors at the RVI and he said not many people survive that kind of cardiac arrest
- even if they're being treated in hospital."
Studies from developed countries suggest a higher number of victims were saved after suffering a cardiac arrest
due to the availability of early emergency care provided by either ambulance services or laypersons trained to perform CPR.
"Getting a defibrillator to someone in cardiac arrest
quickly significantly increases their chance of survival.
The true incidence of paediatric cardiac arrest
is unknown, but out-of-hospital cardiac arrest
(OHCA) events are estimated at 9 per 100 000 person years, whereas arrest within intensive care units is thought to occur 0.94 times per 100 admissions.
The BHF says if you witness a cardiac arrest
then it's crucial to start CPR immediately.
