ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00173615
First received: September 12, 2005
Last updated: January 16, 2009
Last verified: January 2009
  Purpose

Analysis of the patients' data who were rescued with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and without ECMO. The survival rate and the weaning rate were analyzed to see the effect of ECMO on the prolonged CPR.


Condition Intervention
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation
Cardiac Arrest
Ventricular Tachycardia
Ventricular Fibrillation
Procedure: Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 85 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • CPR > 10 min without return of spontaneous circulation

Exclusion Criteria:

  • CPR with traumatic origin unless bleeding was under control, previous irreversible brain damage, terminal status of malignancy, and the age over 75 years. For the patients with post-cardiotomy shock requiring ECLS in the operating theater because of an inability of weaning from cardiopulmonary bypass, they were excluded as well from this ECPR cohort since they did not receive cardiac massage. The patients that had signed "Do-Not-Resuscitate" (DNR) consent were also excluded from ECLS deployment.
