Example text

2 mg/kg) adrenaline may further enhance CPP, but does not seem to improve long-term survival after out-of-hospital or in-hospital cardiac arrest. Its use is therefore no longer recommended. Vasopressin During cardiac arrest, plasma concentrations of several endogenous vasopressors increase greatly but there are important differences. In successfully resuscitated patients levels of vasopressin are higher, and adrenaline and noradrenaline levels lower, compared with concentrations in those who die.

However, even in the absence of fibrinolysis, the chances of long-term survival under these circumstances are very poor. Using the Universal Algorithm Each step that follows in the ALS algorithm (Fig. 1) assumes that the preceding one has been unsuccessful. A single precordial thump may be performed by professional healthcare providers, in a witnessed or monitored arrest before the defibrillator is attached and is therefore incorporated into the ERC ALS Universal algorithm. It is unlikely to be successful after more than 30 s of arrest.

Nolan, F. de Latorre cerebral perfusion did not differ significantly during CPR. However, vasopressin produced greater cerebral cortical flow after ROSe. In comparison with placebo, the administration of vasopressin during CPR results in significantly lower plasma levels of endogenous adrenaline and noradrenaline. For this reason, the effect of combinations of adrenaline and vasopressin has been studied in animal models of asphyxial cardiac arrest. In one of these studies, the addition of adrenaline to vasopressin improved left ventricular myocardial blood flow.
