And now for something completely different… A peek into some fascinating information regarding CPR and resuscitation research Most information is preliminary, and not quite ready for primetime Practical aspects may be easily adopted Suggests what we may see in as the future of CPR, ACLS, and resuscitation care.
Pressure Manipulation Manipulation of intrathoracic pressure results in significant improvements in cerebral flow. Enhancement of vacuum in the chest result in better blood return and better forward flow Flow is more important than pressure
ST (9/23/09) Tracheal Pressure Aortic Pressure Intracranial Pressure Effect of IPR on Tracheal, Aortic, Intracranial Pressures in Apneic Pigs Immediately post ROSC 30 sec. IPR On
Better Advanced Life Support (ALS) Improving ALS by Enhancing Circulation with Intrathoracic Pressure Regulation (IPR) Objective: Improve chances for survival when Basic Life Support (BLS) fails Problem: Current Advanced Life Support (ALS) often fails as circulation is too low and drugs not been shown to be effective Hypothesis: Improved brain circulation during ALS will improve likelihood for better neurologically-intact survival Comparison: ALS with standard CPR (S-CPR) vs methods to enhance cerebral perfusion based upon improve circulation with IPR
ACD + ITD (BLS phase) Standard CPR (BLS phase)ACD + ITPR (ALS phase) mmHg cm Airway Pressure Aortic Pressure Right Atrial pressure Compression Depth Representative Hemodynamics
Coronary Perfusion Pressure and ETCO2 during the ALS phase Circulation is significantly improved during ALS with ACD/IPR
Effect of ALS Protocol of Heart and Brain Blood flow
1 2 3 4 5 dead Group A BLS: Standard CPR ALS: Standard CPR Group B BLS: Standard CPR ALS: ACD/ITPR Group C BLS: ACD/ITD ALS: ACD/ITPR Good neurologic outcome CPC Cerebral Performance Category (CPC) Scores with 3 ALS Protocols after 12 minutes of untreated VF 24 hour survival with favorable neurological function significantly improved with ALS using ACD/IPR
1 2 3 4 5 dead Group A BLS: Standard CPR ALS: Standard CPR + *ACD/IPR as rescue therapy Group B BLS: Standard CPR ALS: ACD/ITPR Group C BLS: ACD/ITD ALS: ACD/ITPR Good neurologic outcome CPC ** * Cerebral Performance Category (CPC) Scores with 3 ALS Protocols after 12 minutes of untreated VF
Intrathoracic Pressure Regulation during CPR in Patients in Prolonged Arrest ETCO2 values increased from 20.1 mmHg at baseline to 43.6 mmHg during Intrathoracic Pressure Regulation (IPR) treatment ROSC rate was 73% v. 46% for control; mean BP 3 minutes after ROSC in the IPR group was 133/79 mmHg 19 Segal et al, Resuscitation, 2013 Apr;84(4):450-3.
Conclusions ALS protocols utilizing ACD+IPR significantly improved heart and brain perfusion and the likelihood improved neurologically intact survival Use of ACD+IPR in humans looks promising and may provide an additional approach to help ‘save the brain’ after cardiac arrest and failure of immediate defibrillation
Gravity Assist CPR – A Discovery and Solution Or how Elevators in Korea may enhance CPR outcomes 21
Background Connections between thorax and brain instantaneously transmit pressure (respiratory variation in ICP with spinal tap) Guerci et al: positive pressure ventilation
Intrathoracic pressure regulation for intracranial pressure management in normovolemic and hypovolemic pigs Yannopoulos, McKnite, Metzger, Lurie Critical Care Medicine 2006
Fundamental Flaw of Supine S-CPR? Chest compressions simultaneously increase arterial and venous pressure in the brain compressing the already ischemic brain within the closed space of the skull with a high intensity pressure wave with each compression 24
Hypothesis In cardiac arrest, elevation of the head with simultaneous use of CPR technologies that provide enhanced circulation to the heart and brain compared with S-CPR will reduce cerebral venous pressure, lower ICP, and improve outcomes 25
Head Up CPR in a Pig with LUCAS+ITD 26 Evaluation of CPR effectiveness with Head up, Supine, and Head down

Gravity-Assisted Head-Up CPR: Effect on Heart and Brain Perfusion Pressures
Gravity-Assisted Head-Up CPR: Effect on Heart and Brain Flow Blood flow to brain significantly increased with +30 o head-up CPR
Gravity-Assisted Head-Up CPR: Effect on compression and decompression phase perfusion pressures Cerebral Perfusion Pressure during compression and decompression systole diastole compression decompression
Gravity-Assisted Head-Up CPR: Importance of the Combination of LUCAS + ITD The combination of ITD+LUCAS is needed to optimize gravity-assisted CPR
Conclusions: Gravity-Assisted Head Up CPR A potential breakthrough in understanding how to save the brain during CPR. Many new questions: optimal angle? head and neck up only? how long does effect last? does this improve survival? improved with ACD+ITD?
Saving the Brain: Conclusions The brain may be more resilient than the heart, in the absence of the TBI induced by CPR Efforts to reduce ICP during and after CPR may provide novel ways to enhance brain preservation We may be inadvertently creating concussion physiology with every supine compression Improved brain perfusion without increases in ICP, together with other means to preserved brain integrity and healing (eg. TH and P-188) should help save more intact lives
The Future Heads Up CPR? Elevate Head after ROSC? Similar to how TBI, intubated patients are treated Active Compression-Decompression CPR? Stutter CPR/ Ischemic Conditioning SNaPE CPR Nitroprusside, low dose Epi
