1 A single center study on the nonconvulsive status epilepticus after cardiac arrest.- 2 Comparision of neurological outcomes between PCI-first and TTM-first strategies in OHCA patients.- 3 Early lactate clearance is associated with improved outcomes of post-cardiac arrest syndrome.- 4 Indication for target temperature management in patients after choking or suicide hanging.- 5 Prediction in nuerological outcomes in cardiac arrest patients before inducing target temperature management -validation of CAST or cCAST Score
This book presents a valuable new perspective on Post-Cardiac Arrest Syndrome (PCAS), which was defined as system failure following whole-body ischemia-reperfusion injuries by the 2008 International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation. Recently, improving the survival rate of PCAS has become a major priority all over the world. A Perspective on Post-Cardiac Arrest Syndrome addresses various aspects, including: neurological outcomes in non-convulsive status epilepticus, target temperature management, interventions for PCAS after acute coronary syndrome, the significance of measuring lactate clearance, a specific scoring system in prognostication for PCAS, therapeutic indications for suicide hanging cases.
This book will help a broad readership, including emergency physicians, intensivists, cardiologists and neurologists treating PCAS patients, to understand the history, current issues and future challenges in PCAS, presented by respected experts in this field.
