Predictors of In-Hospital Mortality after Recovered Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest in Patients with Proven Significant Coronary Artery Disease: A Retrospective Study

Introduction Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA) remains one of the most challenging health care problems, despite recent efforts to improve cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) with the development of evidence-based guidelines and care-bundle systems. The number of patients who achieve return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) and survive to hospital discharge varies from 7 to 40% depending on the clinical setting [ 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 ]. The bulk of the available data reporting survival predictors, comes from studies addressing the overall OHCA

Cerebellar Haemorrhage Leading to Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Introduction Intracranial haemorrhage (ICH) is a known, but a rare cause of out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) leading to the development of non-shockable rhythms such as asystole or pulseless electrical activity (PEA). The incidence of ICH causing OHCA is unclear but 4-18% of OHCA are caused by subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) [ 1 ]. Fatal cerebellar haemorrhage leading to a cardiac arrest is very rare compared to SAH. Case Report A 77-years old Caucasian male with a history of coronary artery triple bypass surgery, atrial fibrillation and aortic
