    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Background and aim. Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is a leading cause of death in many western countries. Much effort is put in to measures to improve survival. Early cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) significantly increase the chance of survival. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Abstract Background: Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Despite healthcare improvements, prevention for cardiovascular health, training in adult basic life support (BLS) with cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillation (AED), together with increased public awareness of cardiovascular disease, survival from OHCA still remains poor.

  3. 3. Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest : A study on factors associated with cardiopulmonary resuscitation, early defibrillation and survival

    Sammanfattning : p>Cardiac disease is the most common cause of mortality in the Western World and the majority of these cardiac deaths is due to out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). In Sweden, an estimated 5,000-10,000 people suffer an OHCA annually. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Out of hospital cardiac arrest : with focus on bystander CPR and public access defibrillation

    Författare :Mattias Ringh; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) annually affecting hundreds of thousands of pa¬tients in Europe alone. Survival is highly dependent on time to treatment (cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and defibrillation). LÄS MER

  5. 5. Dispatch of lay responders to out-of-hospital cardiac arrests

    Författare :Ellinor Berglund; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Background and aim Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) remains a major public-health problem affecting around 300 000 Europeans each year. If treatment is not started within a couple of minutes the chances of survival are slim. One important predictor of survival is the time from call to start of treatment. LÄS MER
