Show Notes

A critical component to post-arrest care for the patient with ROSC following out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is early coronary angiography. Current guidelines recommend immediate cardiac angiography for patients with evidence of a STEMI on their post-arrest ECG. For the more common scenario of non-diagnostic ECGs, the role of early coronary angiography remains uncertain. In this podcast, superstar Amal Mattu joins us to discuss an article just published in the New England Journal of Medicine on early coronary angiography for patients without evidence of STEMI following ROSC.

ECMO for Cardiac Arrest and Massive PE

Despite continued advances in resuscitation, favorable outcomes for patients with OHCA who receive standard resuscitation remain dismal.  In recent years there has been significant interest in the use of ECMO for OHCA.  However, the evidence demonstrating the efficacy of ECMO in OHCA remains limited.  In this podcast we review the recent ARREST Trial, which evaluated ECMO-facilitated resuscitation in OHCA.  In addition, we also discuss a recent systematic review on VA-ECMO for massive PE.
