|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Cardiac Arrest||Drug: Epinephrine|
The aim of out study is to determine the pharmacokinetics in humans during cardiac arrest, following a single dose of epinephrine. Venous samples will be withdrawn every minute the first five minutes following a single dose.
The aim of the study is to determine T1/2 in a clinical setting and to determine time to peak concentration.
|Study Type :||Observational|
|Actual Enrollment :||8 participants|
|Official Title:||Pharmacokinetic Study of Epinephrine During Cardiac Arrest Determining T1/2 and Time to Peak Concentration|
|Actual Study Start Date :||June 26, 2017|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||July 12, 2018|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||October 12, 2018|
All patients treated for cardiac arrest, meeting our inclusions criteria will be enrolled in the study. No interventions regarding the national guidelines will be jeopardized, as the plasma concentration following a single dose of epinephrine will be measured in all patient.
This is truly an observational study to determine T1/2 for epinephrine and time to peak concentration following a single dose of epinephrine in a cardiac arrest setting
Other Name: Adrenaline
- Concentration of epinephrine (ng/mL) as a function of time the first five minutes following administration [ Time Frame: Blood samples will be drawn within minutes, and the survivors transported to hospital. The data according to Utstein-style, will also be collected. Blood samples will be analysed within weeks.Total timeframe for the study is estimated to one year. ]Blood concentration of epinephrine will be determined the first five minutes following administration. For every minute starting With administration of epinephrine, blood samples will be drawn to determine the concentration (ng/mL). In total, six samples will be drawn. The administered dose (1 mg) will also be related to the patients weight, either estimated, or for those survivors admitted to hospital, measured in the Intensive Care Unit. Further, data according to the Utstein-template will be recorded.However, the primary outcome is to determine the plasma concentrations in every patients the first five minutes.
Biospecimen Retention: Samples Without DNA
