What is the Utstein criteria?

Utstein-style guidelines use an established consensus process, endorsed by the international resuscitation community, to facilitate and structure resuscitation research and publication. The first “Guidelines for Uniform Reporting of Data From Drowning” were published over a decade ago.

What is Utstein survival rate?

Overall, survival was 29.8% (11,567/38,836): 33.9% (7774/22,918) among current Utstein, 17.2% (1942/11,297) among unwitnessed VF, and 40.1% (1851/4621) among EMS-witnessed VF.

What does Utstein stand for?

The Utstein Style is a set of guidelines for uniform reporting of cardiac arrest. The Utstein Style was first proposed for emergency medical services in 1991.

What are the 5 steps of the cardiac chain of survival?

The chain of survival—early access, early CPR, early defibrillation, early ACLS, and early post-resuscitative care—is an operational framework that can be used to assess the EMS response to OHCA.

What percentage of resuscitations are successful?

Patient and family expectations for CPR can affect the medical care that’s given, according to Dr. Norkamari Shakira Bandolin, of the University of California, Davis, and colleagues. In earlier studies, patients have pegged CPR survival rates at between 19% and 75%.

How often does ROSC happen?

Background: Return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) occurs in 35.0 to 61.0% of emergency medical services (EMS)-treated out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCAs); however, not all patients achieving ROSC survive to hospital arrival or discharge.

Who makes the Dnar decision?

DNACPR is a medical treatment decision that can be made by your doctor even if you do not agree. You must be told that a DNACPR form will be/has been completed for you, but a doctor does not need your consent.

What is the basic cycle of CPR?

Thirty chest compressions followed by two rescue breaths is considered one cycle. Be careful not to provide too many breaths or to breathe with too much force. Resume chest compressions to restore blood flow. As soon as an automated external defibrillator (AED) is available, apply it and follow the prompts.
