Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest: Amiodarone and Lidocaine May Improve Survival Outcomes
There were no significant differences in survival to hospital discharge among the amiodarone, lidocaine, and placebo groups.
In a recent study, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators treated sustained ventricular arrhythmias, including shocks and antitachycardia.
The International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation released an updated consensus on cardiopulmonary resuscitation and emergency cardiovascular care.
Early ventricular arrhythmias are linked to significantly reduced survival for patients post contemporary continuous flow left ventricular assist device implantation.
