The Evolving Role of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory in the Management of Patients With Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest

Senior-Couple-Talking-with-doctor_750x500
  • 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.
