9 Different Approach to OHCA OHCA is a major public health problemWe SHOULD maximize our resources and collaborations with the goal of improving survivalWe NEED to have a REALISTIC idea of what happens in the field where the battle is foughtEmergency medicine leaders MUST guide the community on how to bridge the gap between current knowledge and practiceAs each of us is well aware, out of hospital cardiac arrest is a major public health problem in our country.Survival rates in my community of metropolitan Phoenix, as determined by our statewide database, are dismal, averaging less than 3%.This is similar to most other large cities in our country.

This was left up to the paramedics discretion depending on how many providers were responding to the arrest.Paramedics administer one milligram of epinephrine Intravenously as early as possible and again with each cycle of chest compression and rhythm analysis.After 3 cycles of chest compressions and rhythm analysis, providers returned to their standard ACLS protocol consisting of endotracheal intubation and ACLS drugs.Administer 1 mgIV EpinephrineResume Standard ACLSConsider EndotrachealIntubationIf adequate bystander chest compressions are provided, EMS providersperform immediate rhythm analysis

22 HypothesisOHCA victims in Arizona receiving Cardiocerebral Resuscitation would have higher survival rates than victims receiving routine Advanced Life SupportWe hypothesized that OHCA victims in Arizona receiving Cardiocerebral Resuscitation would have higher survival rates than victims receiving routine Advanced Life Support, as defined by what each EMS agency would traditionally provide.
23 Methods: Data Collection and Training Utstein style databaseOctober 2004 to August 200711 of 61 (18%) elected to change to CCRTrain-the-trainer programJanuary 2005 to April 2007~3,000 EMT (B) and (P) trained(CLICK)In October 2004 we initiated an Utstein style database for the participating EMS agencies.The Cardiocerebral Resuscitation protocol was presented to EMS Medical Directors through the State EMS Council and approved as an acceptable alternate protocol.11 of the 61 EMS agencies elected to change their protocol. (CLICK)Between January 2005 and April 2007, we conducted a train-the-trainer program that consisted of a 2 hour presentation with printed material along with hands-on skills training. These trainers then trained all the providers in each agency.Approximately 3000 EMT Basics and Paramedics were trained in total.

37 HOW DO WE FURTHER IMPROVE SURVIVAL? Therapeutic Hypothermia
39 Therapeutic hypothermia had been advocated for decades as a treatment to improve neurologic outcome after cardiac arrest. The early studies focused on moderate hypothermia, which was associated with complications and was not clearly beneficial. Over the past decade, studies focused on mild hypothermia with target temperatures of 32ºC – 34ºC. Two recent multi-centered, randomized, controlled trials have demonstrated improved neurologic outcome with mild therapeutic hypothermia applied to comatose survivors after cardiac arrest compared to a normothermic control group.
41 Reperfusion InjuryReperfusion injury is defined as “damage observed after restoration of blood flow to ischemic tissues”There are three potential treatment modalities to counteract the untoward effects of reperfusion:Increased ICU care and length of stayAntioxidantsHypothermia inductionThe use of antioxidants has been studied extensively in animals and has not been favorable. The antioxidants must be administered exactly when blood flow reperfusion begins for it to be effective (useful in cath lab)4141
42 Clinical Hypothermia Mechanism of Action There are three distinct stages of cerebral injury after hypoxic insultEarlyIntermediateLateTherapeutic hypothermia is considered to be neuroprotective by acting at each of the three stages of injury42
43 Mechanism of Hypothermia Decrease in cerebral metabolism6% reduction for every 10C drop in temperatureSuppression of reperfusion injuryDecreased free radical productionReduction in excitatory neurotransmittersSuppression of Ca+2 mediated cell deathAnti-inflammatory effectsNolan et al.

45 Mild Therapeutic Hypothermia to Improve the Neurologic Outcome After Cardiac Arrest (HACA) Patients with witnessed cardiac arrest from VF or pulseless VT, years of age, estimated 5-15 minutes to attempted resuscitation, and less than 60 minutes from collapse to restoration of spontaneous circulation275 patients of 3,551 cardiac arrests studied137 patients received hypothermiaDr. Fritz Sterz, Vienna, Austria, and The Hypothermia After Cardiac ArrestStudy Group, N Engl J Med 2002; 346:

55 Conclusions“In patients who have been successfully resuscitated after cardiac arrest due to ventricular fibrillation, therapeutic mild hypothermia increased the rate of a favorable neurologic outcome and reduced mortality.”-from The Hypothermia After Cardiac Arrest Study Group“…treatment with moderate hypothermia appears to improve outcomes in patients with coma after resuscitation from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.”-from SA Bernard et al
57 RecommendationsUnconscious adult patients with return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) after out-of hospital cardiac arrest should be cooled to 32°C to 34°C (89.6°F to 93.2°F) for 12 to 24 hours when the initial rhythm was ventricular fibrillation. Class IIaSimilar therapy may be beneficial for patients with non-VF arrest out of hospital or for in-hospital arrest. Class IIbAmerican Heart Association 2005 Guidelines57

Title 36, Chapter In January 2005, the SHARE program was designated a public health program by the Arizona Department of Health Services.
90 Summary Hypothermia is part of a total care package A protocol for therapeutic hypothermia and PCI is necessary to assure efficient treatment and optimal results.TH should be initiated ASAP after ROSC, but appears successful even if delayed 4-6 hours.System-wide implementation of standardized post resuscitation care is feasible and will save lives.
