Open cardiac massage in asthmatic arrests? |

This idea was provoked by a colleague some years ago who could not achieve a palpable pulse during CPR of an arrested asthmatic child. He wondered whether the severe hyperinflation was rendering external cardiac compressions ineffective and whether he should have done a (prehospital) thoracotomy.

Delivering thrombectomy for acute stroke using cardiology services

Evidence is mounting for the supplementary benefit over thrombolysis of endovascular therapy in selected patients with acute stroke. Mechanical percutaneous removal of intracerebral clot using an aspiration catheter ensures that the artery is recanalised. Like thrombolysis, the benefits are greater with early treatment, and we need to think about how to achieve this. Evidence on the benefits of rapid primary percutaneous coronary intervention in patients presenting with ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) led to a network being set up in the United Kingdom to provide 24 hour care.1 Teams staffing these networks, skilled in opening arteries quickly, could also provide endovascular therapy to selected patients with acute stroke.
