Ryan Coute

NIH-Funded Cardiac Arrest Research: A 10-Year Trend Analysis
Ryan A Coute | University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI

RESULTS: Even though there has been some increase in cardiac arrest funding, more needed. Currently cardiac arrest funding ranks lower than funding for stroke and heart disease.

Impact of Changes in the Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care on Neurologically Intact Survival
Ken Nagao | Nihon University Hospital, Tokyo, Japan

RESULTS: For adults with out of hospital cardiac arrest, utilization of guideline recommendations has increased 3-day neurologically intact survival in this Japan registry analysis.

Daniel W. Spaite

Evaluation of Prehospital Hypotension Depth-duration Dose and Mortality in Major Traumatic Brain Injury
Daniel W. Spaite | University of Arizona, Phoenix, AZ

RESULTS: Mortality risk from hypotension in the prehospital setting for severe traumatic brain injury is probably not a result of single measurement, but likely to be more complex than originally thought. The depth and dose appear to be important considerations for mortality risk in this setting.

Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta versus Aortic Cross Clamping Among Patients With Critical Trauma: A Nationwide Cohort Study in Japan
Toshikazu Abe | Tsukuba Medical Center Hospital, University of Tsukuba, Tsukuba, Japan

RESULTS: For patients with critical trauma resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) may be a better approach than aortic cross clamping in reducing mortality risk.

Increase in Bystander Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation in Sweden During the Last 15 Years is Mainly Attributed to Increased Rates of "Chest Compression Only" CPR
Gabriel Riva | Karolinska Institute, Stockhom, Sweden

RESULTS: Compression-only CPR (CO-CPR) is credited with the increase in bystander CPR seen in Sweden in the past 15 years.

Statin Use is Associated With Better Outcomes in Patients With Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest in a Nationwide Cohort Study
Ping-Hsun Yu | Taipei Hospital, Ministry of Health and Welfare, Taiwan, R.O.C., New Taipei City, Taiwan

RESULTS: In patients where statins were used before out of hospital cardiac arrest outcomes, including survival to admission, survival to discharge, and survival at one-year were improved in this Japanese cohort.

Session ReSS.AOS.13A - Concurrent Session: Oral Abstracts - Cardiac Arrest Epidemiology

Sunday, Nov. 13 | 3:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m. | Room 203-205

Comparison of Conventional and Compression Only Bystander CPR Following Pediatric Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest in the United States: A Study From the Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival (CARES)
Maryam Y Naim, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA

RESULTS: Infants received bystander CPR more often than compression only CPR. Children >1 – 18 received Co-CPR more often. Improved survival overall was associated with conventional CPR in infants and black children compared to Co-CPR.
