Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Diastolic blood pressures produced by manual and then by automated chest compressions will be recorded for each patient [ Time Frame: Instantaneously ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Systolic blood pressures produced by manual and then by automated chest compressions will be recorded for each patient [ Time Frame: Instantaneously ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Mean blood pressures produced by manual and then by automated chest compressions will be recorded for each patient [ Time Frame: Instantaneously ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Intervention Details:
    Device: Automated load-distributing band device
    Blood pressure recording before and after starting up the automated band device
    Other Name: AutoPulse™ 100, Zoll®
Detailed Description:

The protocol compares arterial pressures produced by an automated self-adjusting load-distributing band device (AutoPulse™ 100, Zoll®) with those of manual cardiopulmonary resuscitation in refractory out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Each patient will receive first manual compressions and then automated resuscitation.

Patients presenting with cardiac arrest are treated following standard advanced life support guidelines. They are intubated and ventilated, received epinephrine and defibrillation if appropriate. Manuel chest compressions are continued. An arterial catheter is placed to monitor hemodynamics continuously as we usually do in this case. Patients are included at this stage. Three blood pressure values (every 1 minutes) are recorded. Then, the automated band device is started up without any pause, following our procedure for refractory cardiac arrest. Three blood pressure values are recorded again, during automated cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
