The Evolving Role of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory in the Management of Patients With Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest
Published: February 14, 2019
- Coronary artery disease is prevalent in different causes of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), especially in individuals presenting with shockable rhythms of ventricular fibrillation/pulseless ventricular tachycardia (VF/pVT).
- VF/pVT patients should be considered at the highest severity in the continuum of acute coronary syndromes.
- This report reviews the prevalence and importance of coronary artery disease in patients with OHCA and describes the evolution and benefits of treatment with advanced perfusion/reperfusion techniques.
