An Ebp Approach To Managing Post Cardiac Arrest Interdisciplinary Care, Mary Kay Bader, Teresa Wavra, Tauseef Qureshi, Jon Cline, Marne Andersen

2022 Southern California Nursing Research Conference

The Joint Commission (TJC) published new performance standards on Post Cardiac Arrest (PCA) care that went into effect on Jan 1, 2022. The new standards encourage hospitals to review and synthesize current scientific literature on Post Cardiac Arrest Syndrome (PCAS) and analyze current hospital practice. Following a review of the evidence, hospitals are guided to create a multidisciplinary protocol and education that facilitates training of personnel, implementation of the evidence into clinical practice, data collection, and case review processes. The intent of the standard is to bring hospital based clinical practice in line with the established standards to improve patient ...

Journal of the Saudi Heart Association

Background: The burden of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and heart failure (HF) remains high in Saudi Arabia. Biomarkers can greatly improve the management and outcomes of these conditions, but no official guidance is available on their use in Saudi Arabia. Consensus panel: An expert panel of cardiologists, interventional cardiologists and cardiac surgeon reviewed available evidence and formulated recommendations relevant to clinical practice in Saudi Arabia. Consensus findings: high-sensitivity cardiac troponins play a major role in the diagnosis of ACS and the exclusion of myocardial infarction in patients with HF. Natriuretic Peptides are recommended to determine the likelihood of a diagnosis ...


Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Therapy In Covid-19 Patients With Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, Joseph B. Zwischenberger, Katherine Breetz 2022 University of Kentucky College of Medicine

Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Therapy In Covid-19 Patients With Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, Joseph B. Zwischenberger, Katherine Breetz

Journal of Shock and Hemodynamics

Patients with coronavirus disease of 2019 (COVID-19) may present with a wide range of symptoms ranging from asymptomatic to critically ill. Approximately 10-14% of patients require hospitalization. Those individuals requiring hospitalization can deteriorate rapidly with worsening hypoxemia or new-onset pneumonia, resulting in 20-30% of patients developing acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).

When refractory to medical management, severe ARDS secondary to other illnesses has been successfully treated with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). We completed a comprehensive literature review of ECMO utilization for patients with severe COVID-19 who were unresponsive to critical care management. Of the 1419 patients with a reported diagnosis ...

Journal of the Saudi Heart Association

Background and aim of the work: Pediatric cardiac patients often undergo non-cardiac surgical procedures and many of these patients would require intensive care unit admission, but can we predict the need for ICU admission in pediatric cardiac patients undergoing non-cardiac procedures. Numerous preoperative and intraoperative variables were strongly associated with ICU admission. Given the variations in the underlying cardiac physiology and the diversity of non-cardiac surgical procedures along with the scarce predictive clinical tools, we aimed to develop a simple and practical tool to predict the need for ICU admission in pediatric cardiac patients undergoing non-cardiac procedures. Material and Methods ...
