2 CPR Update RECOVER REassessment Campaign On VEterinary Resuscitation.
Series of 7 articles in Journal of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care GOALS evaluate the scientific evidence relevant to small animal CPR compose consensus-based clinical CPR guidelines for dogs and cats

3 CPR Update RECOVER – 7 Parts 1 ABOUT “RECOVER” – Materials & Methods 2

4 Part 1 RECOVER Materials & Methods
Wendy Blount, DVM Part 1 RECOVER Materials & Methods

5 CPR Update RECOVER Systematic evaluation of 74 questions having to do with small animal CPR Generated 101 CPR Guidelines Completed by more than 80 specialists in academia (48%) and private practice (52%) mostly Anesthesia and Critical Care Modeled after International Liaison Committee On Resuscitation (ILCOR) evidence analysis for in human CPR since 1992 Endorsed by ACVECC and VECCS Many knowledge gaps identified – may guide research Will reconvene every 5 years

6 RECOVER Introduction CPA = Cardiopulmonary Arrest
CPR = Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation PCA = Post Cardiac Arrest PICO = Population-Intervention-Comparison-Outcome (Q format) <6% of dogs and cats that experience CPA in the hospital survive to discharge. 20% of people who suffer in-hospital CPA are discharged CPA outcomes could be considerably improved in veterinary patients Current veterinary CPR recommendations have been derived from guidelines for humans Disagreement about how to best perform CPR even among boarded emergency and critical care veterinary specialists

7 Domain 1 Preparedness and Prevention
Wendy Blount, DVM Domain 1 Preparedness and Prevention

8 Pre-Stocked Arrest Areas
Crash Carts use of both pre-stocked arrest stations and cognitive aids improves compliance with CPR protocols 80% of GPs and 98% of specialists in VECC & anesthesia have a regularly maintained crash cart Most problematic are: missing equipment due to lack of return to the cart incomplete stocking Inability to identify or locate needed medications Failure to have drugs and syringes in a quick, usable form Deficiencies and defects in resuscitation equipment

9 Pre-Stocked Arrest Areas
Crash Carts Retrospective study on cardiac arrest in human hospital: Delay in CPR due to equipment failure 18% of the time 9% of carts had significant deficiencies Inaccessible location Infrequent assessment of cart content Too much variation in carts when there are more than one What is the crash cart deficiency rate in vet medicine? SOLUTIONS: Checklists and dated log sheet for restocking Regular re-training of staff Cognitive Aids improve outcome flow charts check lists Dose charts or calculators

10 Arrest Etiology & Outcome
Preparedness Prevention Arrest Etiology & Outcome anesthesia-related CPAs are associated with increased survival compared to arrests from other causes. Survival rate of dogs and cats for CPA is between 4 and 9.6% Survival rate in human hospitals for CPA is 10-20% Veterinary studies 36-55% of CPAs occurring under anesthesia survive to discharge 0-3% of other CPAs survive to discharge Survive to discharge is much more important than successful CPA resuscitation Drug reactions resulting in CPA also have a relatively favorable outcome

11 Arrest Etiology & Outcome
Preparedness Prevention Arrest Etiology & Outcome Human studies – operating room CPAs Death rate % for all etiologies of CPA Death rate 5.5% for anesthesia related CPAs Human error is noted in 91% of anesthesia related deaths Post resuscitation debriefing soon after the episode detects and corrects human error.

12 Preparedness & Prevention
CPR Training CPR skills begin to decay within weeks of training, no matter the learning method used By 1-2 years after training, skills return to re-training level Annual CPR training is crucial Semi-annual CPR training is even better. American Hospital Association (AHA) Cognitive performance completing steps of CPR in an orderly and rapid fashion Psychomotor skills for BLS Proper hand position, adequate rate and depth, adequate recoil for chest compressions Minimizing interruptions Avoiding excessive ventilation in rate and volume

13 Preparedness Prevention CPR Team Leadership
Presence of physician at human CPR does not necessarily improve outcome Some studies show improved outcome, some no difference and a few worse outcome when a doctor is present for CPR The flaw might be in assuming that physicians are actually more experienced (skilled) than nurses or paramedics at CPR Survival rates not affected by experience of the first responder No veterinary studies comparing outcomes of vets vs. techs for CPR CPR Leadership Training definitely improves outcome of human CPR

14 Preparedness Prevention CPR Team Leadership
Rapid intervention of the first responder and application of ALS is crucial to improving survival for human CPR Leadership instruction coordinates the group CPR effort Technical instruction teaches the mechanics of CPR CPR Leadership Training improves: Time to initiate CPR Percentage of defibrillation within the recommended time window “hands on time” maximizing CPR time during the emergency Chest compression rate Improves cognitive skills Does not necessarily improve all psychomotor skills

15 Preparedness Prevention CPR Team Leadership
CPR Leaders are more effective if they do not participate in the resuscitation CPA simulation is the ideal tool for teaching CPR Leadership High fidelity manikins with immediate feedback are the best equipment for teaching CPR Leadership skills

16 Preparedness & Prevention
Team Size Veterinary CPR – Leader (vet or tech) plus three 1 kennel attendant or tech to ventilate 1 kennel attendant or tech to do chest compressions 1 technician to be directed by the leader – intubate, establish IV line, help with cut downs, get supplies and special need items, clean up, etc. Leader keeps the records and coordinates, doesn’t do anything that takes more than a few seconds Clear the room of other people, leave the door open, and have others stand by if needed

17 Standardized Training
Preparedness Prevention Standardized Training Many studies show improved outcome in CPA after standardized training for BLS and/or ALS are implemented Not widely available in Veterinary Medicine Case based learning tends to be more effective than text-book training alone TAMU does provide a first responder paramedical course for veterinary professionals and staff CPR Guidelines put forth by VECC July 2012

18 Preparedness & Prevention
Debriefing When high fidelity immediate feedback manikins are not available, post episode debriefing is the next best thing for learning psychomotor skills Debrief after each real time CPR Drill, debrief, drill, debrief, drill, debrief significant improvement in survival in human pediatric patients (33–50%) over time with the use of mock codes and debriefing integrated into a resident teaching program Patient survival in simulations increased from 0% to 89% during a re-training for ALS certified health care workers, using mock codes and debriefing

19 Preparedness & Prevention
Debriefing Debriefing is more effective in learning CPR than any other teaching modality used alone Debriefing can take many forms: Verbal debriefing Audio-visual playback and discussion Review of immediate feedback devices that can record Computer interactive audio-visual learning modules

20 Post-Training Assessment
Preparedness Prevention Post-Training Assessment A test at the end of the CPR training session improves learning retention weeks to months later Reviewing test results can be a learning tool as well.

21 Preparedness & Prevention
Conclusions In light of the higher survival in dogs and cats following CPA while under anesthesia, consideration should be given to placement of arrest and algorithms in areas where animals are routinely anesthetized anesthesia induction/prep areas Surgical suites Anesthetic recovery areas At our HQHVSN Clinic, we have 2 surgery tables and one prep table One table is always open That table is the arrest station Crash box is mobile Emergency drugs are the only drugs not kept in the lock box Anesthetic arrests most often occur during recovery

22 CPR Update RECOVER Key Preparedness and Prevention recommendations for canine and feline CPR Organized, pre-stocked arrest stations improve performance Located where animals are routinely anesthetized Post-CPR debriefing improves future performance. Standardized training programs should be developed. have improved adherence to guidelines in human medicine are needed in veterinary medicine. High fidelity manikins are effective in human medicine. Leadership and team communication training increase effectiveness.

23 Domain 2 BLS – Basic Life Support
Wendy Blount, DVM Domain 2 BLS – Basic Life Support

24 Basic Life Support ABC Establish airway Ventilation (breathing)
8-10 breaths per minute if intubated Up to 20 mm H20 on the manometer C:V ratio of 30:2 if not intubated (compression:ventilation ratio) Chest compressions (circulation) 100 per minute or faster 1/3 to ½ the width of the chest Full recoil between compressions (press hard and fast) Minimize interruptions (no more than 1 every 2 minutes)

25 Basic Life Support ABC Numerous studies have shown that the quality of BLS performed is associated with return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) and survival in arrest victims. Minimal equipment Can be started immediately at onset of CPA Every staff member should be trained in BLS At least chest compressions and breathing All may not be able to intubate

26 Basic Life Support Training Rapid recognition of CPA
Rapid initiation of CPR Immediate chest compressions Begin intubation and ventilation simultaneously

27 Basic Life Support Training Rapid recognition of CPA
Incidence of CPA during anesthesia 0.17% in dogs, 0.24% in cats Patient is unresponsive Absence of breathing (agonal does not count) Absence of palpable pulses or auscultable heart sounds ECG confirms lack of effective circulation If in doubt, do chest compressions <2% adverse effects when done when not in CPA Rib fracture, tracheal bleeding, soreness

28 Basic Life Support Training ECG Confirms lack of effective circulation
Asystole Pulseless ventricular tachycardia Other pulseless electrical activity Ventricular fibrillation

29 Basic Life Support Training Rapid initiation of CPR
One person is the CPR Leader & record keeper One person does chest compressions unless directed to stop by the Leader One person establishes the airway and ventilates unless directed to stop by the leader One person begins ALS, attaches monitors and carries out other tasks as instructed by the CPR Leader

30 Basic Life Support Training Ventilation
Hypoxia and hypercapnea reduce likelihood or ROSC Establishing oxygenation may prevent respiratory arrest from progressing to cardiac arrest When intubation is not available, rescue breathing 30:2 V:C is indicated Mouth to snout AmbuBag and snug fitting anesthetic mask Or anesthetic mask attached to oxygen tank MAKE SURE VAPORIZER IS OFF Watch for gastric distension and relieve with manual pressure Take the manometer to 20 cm H20

31 Basic Life Support Training Ventilation – Ambu Bags

32 Basic Life Support Training Ventilation – Ambu Bags

38 Basic Life Support Training
Ventilation – Tips for endotracheal intubation Visualize the arytenoid cartilages If you didn’t see it go in, assume it’s not in Use polypropylene catheter stylet for cats (biggest that moves freely in the ET tube – 5Fr, 8Fr, 10Fr) Use the biggest tube that passes without too much resistance Fill the cuff, but do not overfill it Tie the tube in place Set oxygen flow rate at 1 L/min for circle system (>15 lbs) and 1.5 L/min for non-rebreathing circuits (<15 lbs)

40 Basic Life Support Training
Ventilation – Tips for endotracheal intubation Fiberoptic Laryngoscopes are much superior to bulb laryngoscopes (Miller blades preferred) Green plastic base on blade, green stripe on handle Different size attachment than standard laryngoscopes

41 Basic Life Support Training Chest Compressions
Achieve cardiac output of 25-30% normal If they generate a pulse, technique is good circumferential compression vests are not superior to manual compressions at the sternum Hand placement over the heart for lateral compressions No evidence that dorsal recumbency is superior to lateral recumbency “Given the lack of high-quality evidence, no evidence based recommendation regarding the best body position for chest compressions in dogs and cats can be made at this time.”

42 Basic Life Support Training Chest Compressions
Higher compression rates ( /min) are associated with better outcome than 60/minute Do not “lean” on the chest between compressions, to allow full recoil between compressions Compressions should be fast, as should the release If you have an extra person, interposed abdominal compressions do improve circulatory resuscitation Interruptions to check ECG should happen no more often than every 2 minutes

43 Basic Life Support Training (CPR Flow Sheet Form)

44 Domain 3 ALS – Advanced Life Support
Wendy Blount, DVM Domain 3 ALS – Advanced Life Support

45 Advanced Life Support Defibrillation (BLS in CPR for people)
IV fluid therapy to correct metabolic disturbances Drug therapy, including anesthetic reversal drugs Open chest CPR Strong support for epinephrine at 0.01 mg/kg Strong support for early defibrillation of Vfib or pulseless Vtach IF BLS and ALS performed promptly, ROSC can be as high as 50%

46 Advanced Life Support ALS Steps
Apply and respond to Monitors & Vital Signs HR, RR, temp, ECG, BP, spO2, ETCO2 IV fluid bolus 10 ml/lb over minutes Contraindicated for congestive heart failure or oliguria/anuria Reassess and repeat as necessary Add colloids or hypertonic fluids PRN Collect blood samples for Quick Assessment Tests Glucose, BUN, creat, PCV/TS Run CBC, panel, electrolytes if life can be prolonged Respond to abnormalities, reassess and respond again

47 Advanced Life Support Drugs vasopressors vagolytics antiarrhythmics
Glucocorticoids pH buffers Reversal agents

48 Advanced Life Support Drugs Epinephrine – (0.01 mg/kg IV or IT)
Raise blood pressure (pressor) Improve myocardial perfusion Increase tissue perfusion Increase cardiac output (increase SV, increase HR) This dose is preferred to higher doses

49 Advanced Life Support Drugs Is Vasopressin preferred to epinephrine?
Dose – 0.8 U/kg IV or IT Vasopressin causes no additional harm No studies in dogs and cats to show that vasopressin is better than epinephrine Vasopressin has an advantage for resuscitation of certain categories of people who suffer CPA Asystole Prolonged CPA Hypovolemia as a cause of CPA

50 Advanced Life Support Drugs Atropine 1:20 Dose – 0.4 mg/kg IV or IT
Data using atropine without a pressor are lacking Reasonable to use when bradycardia or brief asystole occurs due to increased vagal tone brachycephalics Ileus, vomiting or other severe GI disease Respiratory distress Traumatic intubation Increased CSF pressure

51 Advanced Life Support Drugs Atropine 1:20
Unclear role for prolonged asystole These need a shock as a last resort Take care giving atropine when alpha agonists are on board (xylazine, dexdomitor) Pulmonary hypertension and pulmonary edema Atropine is not indicated for tachyarrhythmias: Ventricular fibrillation Ventricular tachycardia

52 Advanced Life Support Drugs Antiarrhythmics Lidocaine** Procainamide
Amiodarone Bretylium Magnesium

53 Advanced Life Support Drugs Antiarrhythmics
No compelling evidence for routine use Use only if arrhythmia of increased automaticity is present Ventricular tachycardia Ventricular fibrillation – after defibrillation fails Pulseless vtach – after defibrillation fails Contraindicated for lack of electrical activity Asystole bradyarrhythmias

54 Advanced Life Support Drugs Antiarrhythmics
Amioderonemight be the most effective antiarrhythmic for shock resistant vfib and pulseless vtach I dogs Anaphylaxis has been reported Lidocaine is the next best choice Bretylium and magnesium play no role in treating these shock resistant arrythmias Amioderone has not been evaluated in cats

55 Advanced Life Support Drugs Lidocaine Cheat Sheet
3 IV boluses over 10 minutes 2 mg/kg (1cc/10lbs) IV over 1 minute x 2 4 mg/kg (2cc/10lbs) IV over 1 minute If not effective, then start IV CRI (40-80 ug/kg/min) (CPR Drug Dose Chart)

56 Advanced Life Support Drugs Lidocaine CRI Recipe (40-80 ug/kg/min IV)
If using an IV pump (36-72 ug/kg/min IV) Add 50cc 2% lidocaine to 1L fluids to make a 1 mg/ml solution Set IV pump at Body Weight in pounds per hour for low end Double fluid rate for upper end of dose range If using drip rate (40-80 ug/kg/min IV) Mix as above if >30 lbs in body weight Make stronger solution if <30 lbs If <5 lbs - 20cc 2% lidocaine in 100c fluid in the Buretrol (4 mg/ml) If 5-30 lbs - 10cc 2% lidocaine in 100c fluid in the Buretrol (2 mg/ml) Use 60 drop/ml IV set (use drops/ml for lb pets) Count seconds per drop if <30 lbs Count drops/sec if >30 lbs (drip rate chart)

57 Advanced Life Support Drugs Buretol Dial-A-Flow

58 Advanced Life Support Drugs Corticosteroids
No evidence that it helps, unless indicated for underlying process Septic shock Anaphylaxis Addisonian crisis No evidence that it causes harm Not currently recommended

59 Advanced Life Support Drugs Reversal agents Naloxone (0.04 mg/kg IV)
Reverses opiates on board Effects on endogenous endorphins Positive inotrope, antiarrhythmic More studies need to recommend for routine use Flumazenil (0.01 mg/kg IV) Reverses benzodiazepines on board Atimepazole (0.1 mg/kg IV) Reverses dexdomitor or amitraz no board Yohimbine (0.125 mg/kg IV) Reverses xylazine or amitraz no board Reversing other sedatives exacerbates ketamine dysphoria

60 Advanced Life Support Drugs Lipid therapy Lipophilic drugs
If CPA during anesthesia is resuscitated, lipid therapy to clear lipophilic anesthetic drugs faster should be considered Lipophilic drugs Propofol, diazepam, ketamine, opiates beta blockers, calcium channel blockers parasiticides, herbicides psychotropic agents Intralipid® (Baxter) 20% lipid emulsion 1.5 mL/kg over 5–15 min then 0.25 mL/kg/min over 1–2 hrs repeated in several hours if clinical signs of toxicity return, and there is no lipemia Use aseptic technique

61 (Bicarbonate administration handout)
Advanced Life Support Drugs Buffers - bicarbonate Preponderance of evidence recommends against routine use of bicarbonate without confirming severe acidosis Could be considered in prolonged CPA Fewer harmful effects in dogs as compared to other species Indicated for confirmed metabolic acidosis (Bicarbonate administration handout)

62 Advanced Life Support Drugs Calcium
Routine use is not warranted or recommended Indicated for: Hypocalcemia calcium channel blocker overdose Severe hyperkalemia

63 Advanced Life Support Drugs
Correcting Electrolyte/Metabolic Disturbances Hyperkalemia – see section 5 Case Study “Tom” Hypokalemia (Potassium Supplementation Handout) Hypocalcemia Calcium gluconate 10% cc IV slowly Recheck calcium in 15 minutes, re-dose PRN Hypoglycemia Dilute 1-3cc 50% Dextrose, qs to 10cc Administer IV over 1-3 minutes Serial reassessment of blood glucose and re-treat PRN Can use glucagon for insulin overdose

64 Advanced Life Support Drugs IV vs. IT drug administration
Atropine, epinephrine, vasopressin Use high dose (10x) for IT epinephrine (Drug Dose Chart) Technique Mark catheter at end of ET tube when end is at base of heart Draw dose and dilute qs to 3-10cc with sterile water or saline attach dose to 5-8F polypropylene catheter Disconnect endotracheal tube from ventilation (oxygen tank of ambu bag) Pass catheter to mark, inject drug Detach syringe, fill with air, and inject again to clear drug Resume ventilation

65 Advanced Life Support Defibrillation
Electrical defibrillation is without question the most effective therapy for sudden cardiac death due to VF Defibrillation should pre-empt CPR as soon as Vfib is identified, if Vfib has been present for less than 4 minutes If Vfib more than 4 minutes, do 30 compressions and ventilate prior to defibrillation Bipolar defibrillation is preferable to monophasic most evidence supports prompt resumption of cardiac compressions, so single shock every 2 minutes is preferable to several in immediate succession USE ECG cream rather than alcohol for lead contacts

66 (CPR Drug Dose Handout)
Advanced Life Support Defibrillation Increasing Defibrillator Energy Excessively high defibrillation energy may be associated with increased myocardial damage However, failure to successfully defibrillate is inevitably associated with death. For monophasic defibrillators, increasing energy doses are associated with increased success For BP defibrillators, the evidence is less clear an escalating protocol could be considered for both types defibrillators (increase by 50% each time) (CPR Drug Dose Handout)

67 Advanced Life Support Defibrillation Internal Cardiac Compressions
Open-chest CPR is more effective than closed-chest CPR in restoring ROSC and promoting a good outcome in canine models of VFib (can visualize efficacy) open-chest CPR requires significant resources, is a procedure that requires a skillful veterinary team, and demands advanced post-cardiac arrest supportive care. In cases of significant intrathoracic disease it may be advisable to promptly perform open-chest CPR and defibrillation. tension pneumothorax Pericardial effusion

72 Wendy Blount, DVM Domain 4 Monitoring

73 Monitoring Confirming CPA and intubation
Assessing adequacy of CPR and detecting ROSC Continued monitoring after ROSC

74 Monitoring Monitoring recommendations - Summary
Time spent verifying absent pulse may delay onset of CPR; chest compressions should be initiated immediately for apneic, unresponsive patients. ECG analysis of an unresponsive patient may help to rule out CPA, or be used to evaluate for rhythms requiring specific therapy End-tidal CO2 (EtCO2) should not be used as the sole confirmation of endotracheal intubation Pauses in chest compressions to evaluate the ECG rhythm should be minimized

75 Monitoring Monitoring recommendations - Summary
EtCO2 monitoring is useful to identify ROSC, and may be prognostic for the likelihood of ROSC Patient monitoring following ROSC should be directed at identifying abnormalities that may portend another CPA, and should be tailored to each patient

76 Monitoring BSL - Rapid recognition of CPA
Patient is unresponsive, pupils unresponsive Absence of breathing (agonal does not count) Absence of heart beat No palpable pulses No auscultable heart sounds No Doppler activity at pulse points or on the cornea Doppler assessment takes time, and might be more appropriate after CPR has been started, or ROSL Start cardiac compressions here ECG checks confirm lack of effective circulation ETCO2 falls to near zero

77 Monitoring BSL - Rapid recognition of CPA

78 Monitoring BSL - How to Assess Breathing
Watch for chest excursions for at least 1 minute One hand lightly on the costochondral junction Fingers of the other hand in front of the nose at the same time Need to see chest movement more than once There should be clocks on the walls in all areas that are high risk for CPA Surgery prep OR and areas for other anesthetic procedures Anesthesia Recovery ICU Clock on the crash cart is good

79 Monitoring BSL – Pulse Palpation to Detect CPA
Femoral pulse is preferred lay rescuers and healthcare professionals are often unable to accurately and swiftly determine the presence or absence of a pulse Need corroborating evidence Lack of apical beat Apnea agonal breathing lack of an auscultable heartbeat Presence of dorsal pedal pulse (metatarsus) confirms MAP >80mmHg

80 Monitoring ECG to Detect CPA
Pulseless electrical activity (PEA) can give a false negative for CPA Relatively normal ECG must be corroborated by other evidence of spontaneous circulation ECG does reliably identify arrhythmias Vfib – defibrillate Vtach making pulses – drugs Pulseless Vtach – consider defibrillation then drugs ECG can confirm bradyarrhythmia and asystole – atropine for both (defib not indicated for asystole) ALL CPA victims get epinephrine

81 Monitoring ECG to Detect CPA ECG can identify collapse without CPA
Respiratory arrest Start IPPV and assess for impending CPA Vagal surge Atropine, ventilate, assess for impending CPA Hypoglycemia IV dextrose and reassess Anaphylaxis Epinephrine, corticosteroids, antihistamines, IV fluids Internal hemorrhage IV fluids, transfusion Severe hypokalemia or acidosis Supplement potassium first, then correct acidosis only if severe

82 Monitoring ETCO2 to Detect CPA
At constant ventilation, a rapid decline in ETCO2 value is expected during the evolution of CPA sudden decrease of ETCO2 to near zero is a strong indicator of CPA In nonintubated patients, asphyxial CPA may elevate ETCO2 immediately prior to CPA Subsequent ETCO2 will rapidly decrease after the first few delivered breaths unmasking the presence of CPA Asphyxia without CPA might show improvement in ETCO2 after intubation and oxygenation ETCO2 cannot be used alone to diagnose CPA Rising ETCO2 during resuscitation may indicate ROSC

83 Monitoring Confirmation of Endotracheal Intubation
direct visualization of the ETT between the arytenoid cartilages is important Palpate tube in the trachea auscultation of air movement in both hemithoraces rules out bronchial intubation observation of chest wall motion, or ETT condensation are supportive evidence high ETCO2 immediately following intubation means endotracheal intubation is likely, due to the low amount of CO2 in the stomach and esophagus low ETCO2 isn’t helpful

84 Monitoring ECG Monitoring During CPR
ECG can identify arrhythmias amenable to defibrillation (pulseless VT and VFib) primary VFib remains a rare cause of CPA in veterinary patients Most animals have initial arrest rhythm of PEA or asystole that may convert to VFib during CPR ECG monitoring should be weighed against the risk of interrupting chest compressions for ECG rhythm check resume chest compressions as soon as possible after defibrillation and rhythm check

85 Monitoring ETCO2 Monitoring During CPR
EtCO2 serves as a noninvasive surrogate measurement of CO and myocardial perfusion during CPR EtCO2 is frequently used as a reflection of quality of CPR when comparing approaches or devices. alter circulatory support methods to optimize EtCO2 EtCO2 rises steeply when ROSC occurs continued low EtCO2 predicts nonsurvival EtCO2 less than 10 mm Hg over several minutes during CPR is a poor prognostic indicator for ROSC

86 Monitoring ETCO2 Monitoring During CPR
Use caution when interpreting a rise in EtCO2 after using either sodium bicarbonate or epinephrine during CPR Increase in EtCO2 from <10 to >14 mm Hg should prompt evaluation for return of a heartbeat Rise in EtCO2 an be used to distinguish PEA from ROSC

87 Monitoring Ventilation Monitoring During CPR
High ventilation rates (>10–12 breaths/min) should be avoided increased time of positive intrathoracic pressure has negative effect on hemodynamics Excessive ventilation during CPR commonly occurs, even with trained personnel

88 Monitoring Blood Gas and Electrolyte Assay During CPR
Venous blood gas values have better predictive value for ROSC than arterial blood gas values Venous blood gasses are directly related to cardiac output and tissue perfusion When cause of CPA is due to electrolyte abnormalities, electrolyte assay may allow directed therapy Ionized hypocalcemia may be prognostic for ROSC Identifying and correcting abnormalities may promote ROSC

89 Monitoring Vfib Waveform During CPR
coarse VF is more likely to respond with ROSC following defibrillation than fine VF Asystole is unlikely to respond to defibrillation, despite this being commonly portrayed in medical dramas On the other hand, little is lost by attempting to defibrillate prolonged asystole

90 Monitoring Monitoring after ROSC To prevent re-arrest
treat precipitating disease treat short term sequellae of CPA Treat longer term sequellae of CPA Brain hypoxia and ischemia Cardiac ischemia and dysfunction Reperfusion injury Two types of post ROSC monitoring Intensive continuous monitoring Intermittent monitoring

91 Monitoring Monitoring after ROSC Parameters monitored
ECG - Myocardial hypoxia can result in post-resuscitation arrhythmia BP - Episodes of hypotension following ROSC are associated with a worse outcome Temperature – thermoregulation is a good prognostic indicator spO2, +ETCO2 – hypoxic injury to the lungs can result in refractory pulmonary edema (ARDS) Glucose - severity of post ROSC hyperglycemia is correlated with worse outcome Post ROSC seizures worsen prognosis

92 Domain 5 Post-Arrest Care
Wendy Blount, DVM Domain 5 Post-Arrest Care

93 Post Arrest Care In humans, 60-70% of sudden CPA victims do not survive to hospital discharge despite having achieved ROSC initially survival to discharge rates for dogs and cats range from 2-10%, despite initial ROSC of 35–45% these patients succumb to post-cardiac arrest (PCA) syndrome multiorgan failure cardiogenic shock anoxic brain injury Sequellae of preexisting diseases

94 Post Arrest Care Post-Arrest Recommendations – Summary
fluid therapy adjusted according to monitoring is reasonable Monitor and establish normoxemia neurologic benefit of gradual rewarming after hypothermia Conservative fluid resuscitation until cats are rewarmed no evidence to support routine administration of corticosteroids, antiseizure meds, mannitol, or metabolic protectants Low-dose corticosteroid treatment of patients with persistent hypotension requiring sympathomimetic support may be considered

95 Post Arrest Care Post-Arrest Recommendations – Summary
Hypertonic saline (HS) may be considered for cerebral edema as evidenced by coma, obtundation or dysphoria Bundled therapy may have outcome benefit. Hypothermia Hypertension Normocapnia (as opposed to hypocapnia) Thiopental, methylprednisolone, phenytoin, antioxidants More comprehensive PCA care in a specialty with ICU may have an outcome benefit
