National cardiac arrest registry

Cardiac arrest registries are needed to measure and improve the process and outcome of resuscitation care and provide a platform for exploring insight into risk factors, prognosis, and the effectiveness of interventions for out-of-hospital (OHCA) and in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA).

What is the optimal way to improve cardiac arrest resuscitation?

Sudden Death from cardiac arrest and gaps in knowledge of emergency cardiovascular care are the #1 killer of more than 400,000 Americans each year. This epidemic of death and disability is largely ignored and underfunded by NIH and all funding agencies and kills more than HIV, Cancer, Diabetes, and infectious diseases. There is no national registry of cardiac arrest, no mandatory reporting, and poor funding for both fundamental, ...more »

Problem of sudden cardiac death

Among major causes of cardiac mortality cardiac arrest stands as a cause of death that rivals all other causes in terms of frequency. There has been at best only modest improvement in resuscitation over recent years. No wonder with so little NHLBI funding going into this cause compared to acute MI and heart failure. Hopefully the IOM report on cardiac resuscition will be a call to action that will highlight these NIHBI ...more »

Paradigm shift in cardiac arrest rhythm and resuscitation

What resuscitation strategies targeted toward pulseless electrical activity (PEA)/asystole would be successful in preventing cardiac arrest (CA)? Furthermore, what are animal models of PEA/asystole, what is responsible of this major shift in the underlying rhythm of CA, and what is the phenotype?
