sup] If the lesion was complicated only with a large amount of pericardial effusion, the fetal pericardio-amniotic shunting could be made to release the cardiac compression
Chronologically speaking, the "electro-pneumatic machine" developed by Harkins and Bramson (20) in 1961; the "portable pneumatic pump" developed by Nachlas and Siedband (21) in 1962; the "Beck-Rand external cardiac compression
machine" developed by Safar et al.
Pre hospital recognition of extent of cardiac injury is important as sometimes resuscitative measures like large volume fluid infusion and external cardiac compressions
can contribute to worsened outcome.
Secondary sternal closure: A method of preventing cardiac compression
This is most often attributed to a report by Criley, Blaufuss and Kissel on self-administered cough-induced cardiac compressions
When VT developed, the surgeons commenced tightening the sublaminar wires as quickly as possible in case cardiac compression
That is, the performance of external cardiac compression
with the following characteristics: continuous, uninterrupted, push hard, push fast, complete chest recoil, and equal time for compression and release.
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.
