Patients in the Emergency Preservation and Resuscitation for Cardiac Arrest from Trauma (EPR-CAT) trial must have at least one sign of life present within the 5-minute period prior to ED arrival or in the ED, and have no response to open-chest

The new procedure offers a promising option for people who are not candidates for conventional open-chest

Available in three sizes, the microbial sealant provides a suitable option for locking skin flora out of any surgical site, from the smallest incisions to open-chest
surgery in the lateral position may be expected to alter renal, hepatic and pulmonary perfusion through several mechanisms, including gravity-induced alterations in blood flow through the dependent and non-dependent pulmonary circulations, movement of abdominal contents into the non-dependent hemithorax, surgical retraction of thoracic organs, alterations in cardiac output during the procedure and through activation of the sympathetic nervous system.
Lyrical arms, open-chest
