The Effect of Chest Compression Location and Aortic Perfusion in a Traumatic Arrest Model
59th Medical Wing San Antonio United States
Pagination or Media Count:
Recent evidence demonstrates that closed chest compressions directly over the left ventricle LV in a traumatic cardiac arrest TCA model improve hemodynamics and return of spontaneous circulation ROSC when compared to traditional compressions. Selective aortic arch perfusion SAAP also improves hemodynamics and controls hemorrhage in TCA. We hypothesized that chest compressions located over the LV would result in improved hemodynamics and ROSC in a swine model of TCA using SAAP.
