regression procedures. Fourth, the neurologic outcome in the database was not defined by pediatric Cerebral Performance Category. The universal emergency telephone number of 119 directly connects to the regional fire defense headquarters. Bardy GH, Ivey TD, Allen MD,. No significant differences in neurologic outcomes was found between the pediatric ohca patients who were shocked with a biphasic defibrillator and those who were shocked with a monophasic defibrillator. The recommended adult dose of the monophasic defibrillator was initially 200 J, and thereafter, 360. Direct current cardioversion does not cause cardiac damage: evidence from cardiac troponin T estimation. For example, to detect the true difference in 1-month survival with minimal neurologic impairment (17.5 versus.4 the necessary sample size was estimated to be 1,321 on the basis of a two-sided value.05 and a error.20. All tests were two-tailed, and a P value.05 was regarded as significant. We resolved any disagreements by discussion and consensus. Regarding language restrictions, we did not apply any.

Rao AC, Naeem N, John C,. Secondary outcomes included risk of failure to revert VF to an organised rhythm following the first shock or up to three shocks, survival to hospital admission and survival to discharge.

Initial energy setting, outcome and efficiency in direct current cardioversion of atrial fibrillation and flutter. In recent years, biphasic waveforms have become more commonly used for defibrillation than monophasic waveforms. In pediatric patients, no studies compared biphasic and monophasic waveforms, even in controlled laboratory or in-hospital settings.
