Secondary sternal closure: A method of preventing cardiac compression
provide an adequate number and depth of external cardiac compressions
I think there are really good data that [show] we're not doing a great job on cardiac compression
Triggered by compression of the great vessels and cardiac compression
from large tumors, it is a strong predictor of fetal death and may lead to "maternal mirror syndrome," a potentially devastating complication in which the mother develops the same symptoms as her critically ill fetus.
After realising what he had done, Skinner said he attempted to save the dog by trying mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and cardiac compression
Another research study found that a modified AT-101 as a stand alone CPR device was superior to closed chest cardiac compression
in terms of post-resuscitation cardiac function despite significantly less myocardial blood flow during CPR with the AT-101.
The large patient caseload -- estimated at 5 million Americans and growing -- and progressive nature of the disease have generated substantial interest in new, device-based technologies, including rhythm management, mechanical cardiac support, ventricular reconstruction, device-based diuretic therapy, and cardiac compression
and counterpulsation, among others.
The study, conducted in coordination with Columbia Presbyterian Hospital's Divisions of Circulatory Physiology and Thoracic Surgery, was designed to examine the hemodynamic benefits, in terms of pressure and flow augmentation, of CSS's bi-ventricular direct cardiac compression
in the setting of acute heart failure in canine models.
