Concise Critical Appraisal: ARREST Trial: ECMO Versus Advanced Cardiac Life Support

The ARREST Trial compared extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO)-facilitated resuscitation to advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) treatment in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). This month’s Concise Critical Appraisal takes a deep dive into the trial, published in The Lancet.


SCCM Pod-430 Optimal Bundle of Management for Cardiac Arrest

Sudden cardiac arrest remains a leading cause of premature death worldwide and survival with favorable neurologic function is less than 10%. Review a practical, attainable roadmap for enhancing the likelihood of neurologically intact survival in this podcast.


Concise Critical Appraisal: Effect of a Resuscitation Strategy Targeting Peripheral Perfusion Status Versus Serum Lactate

Hernández et al (JAMA. 2019;321:654-664) set out to address that question with a multicenter randomized trial in which they compared two resuscitative targets: the normalization of blood lactate and the normalization of peripheral perfusion as quantified by capillary refill time.


SCCM Pod-VCCR10 Pathophysiology and Management of AKI

Richard Iuorio, MD, speaks with Kianoush Kashani, MD and Jim Reilly, MD about the pathophysiology and management of acute kidney injury.


Concise Critical Appraisal: Is CPR Futile for COVID-19 Patients?

Is cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) futile in hospitalized patients with COVID-19 experiencing cardiac arrest? A study recently published in Critical Care Medicine sought to answer this question and provide more data around outcomes of in-hospital cardiac arrest in patients with COVID-19.


SCCM Pod-VCCR11 Workup, Management, and Critical Sequelae of Burn Injuries

Richard Iuorio, MD speaks with Laura Johnson, MD, and Jim Reilly, MD, about the workup, management, and critical sequelae of burn injuries.


Concise Critical Appraisal: Ultra-Low Tidal Volume Ventilation During CPR

Ruemmler et al (Resuscitation. 2018;132:56-62) set out to compare intermittent positive pressure ventilation to passive oxygenation (continuous positive airway pressure) and a novel ultra-low tidal volume ventilation (ULTVV) regimen.
