Heart Start

  1. 1. MM Presentations By, Shilpa C September 25, 2008
  2. 2. <ul><li>Client: MS&L </li></ul><ul><li>End Client: Philips Medical Systems </li></ul>
  3. 3. Sudden cardiac arrest <ul><li>Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in the industrialized world and the survival rates are very less. The majority of these deaths are due to ventricular fibrillation (V-fib) secondary to heart attack (or myocardial infarction). During V-fib, cardiac output drops to zero and unless remedied promptly, death usually ensues within minutes. Uncorrected, these cardiac conditions rapidly lead to irreversible brain damage and death. After approximately three minutes, irreversible brain/tissue damage may begin to occur. Every minute lost reduces 10 % chance of survival! </li></ul><ul><li>Cardiac arrest refers to the cessation of cardiac pump function which may be reversible (may not be fatal). </li></ul><ul><li>Sudden cardiac death refers to natural death from cardiac causes , heralded by abrupt loss of consciousness within one hour of the onset of acute symptoms. Sudden cardiac death is natural, rapid and unexpected. It does not specifically refer to the mechanism or cause of death. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Sudden Cardiac Arrest: A leading killer in the United States <ul><li>Majority have no prior symptoms. </li></ul><ul><li>Nearly 80% happen in the home. </li></ul><ul><li>More than 50% of home arrests witnessed. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Fibrillation <ul><li>When ventricles or atria does not show any coordinated contractions but merely show irregular oscillations of the surface, then they are termed as fibrillations. Fibrillations result due to a decrease in the rate of conduction of electrical impulses in atria or ventricles. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Ventricular fibrillation <ul><li>Ventricular fibrillation (V-fib) occurs in the ventricles of the heart and it is always medical emergency. If left untreated, ventricular fibrillation can lead to death within minutes. When a heart goes into V-fib, ventricles fail to pump blood. V-fib is considered as a form of cardiac arrest, and an individual suffering from it will not survive unless cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and defibrillation are provided immediately. </li></ul>
  7. 8. Defibrillation
  8. 9. Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) <ul><li>A combination of rescue breathing (mouth-to-mouth resuscitation) and chest compressions. If a person isn't breathing or circulating blood adequately, CPR can restore circulation of oxygen-rich blood to the brain. Without oxygen, permanent brain damage or death can occur in less than 8 minutes. </li></ul><ul><li>WHEN IS IT NEEDED? </li></ul><ul><li>If the victim does not respond when shaken </li></ul><ul><li>If the victim is not breathing normally </li></ul>
  9. 10. The victim's airway must be open for breathing to be restored. Open the airway using a head tilt lifting of chin. Do not tilt the head too far back. In a CPR course, participants learn how to open the airway and position a person so that the airway is ready for rescue breathing. Check the pulse on carotid artery using fingers of the other hand. A is for airway
  10. 11. Tilt the head back and listen for. If not breathing normally, pinch nose and cover the mouth with yours and blow until you see the chest rise. A person performing rescue breathing is essentially breathing for the victim by forcing air into his or her lungs. This procedure includes breathing into the victim's mouth at correct intervals and checking for signs of life. A CPR course will review correct techniques and procedures for rescuers to position themselves to give mouth-to-mouth breathing a cardio-vascular victim. B is for breathing
  11. 12. C is for circulation <ul><li>If you've properly administered rescue breathing, but still see no other signs of life, chest compressions are needed to start circulation. This procedure involves pushing on the chest to help circulate blood and maintain blood flow to major organs. Chest compressions should be coordinated with rescue breathing. A CPR course will teach you how to perform chest compressions in infants, children, and adults and how to coordinate the compressions with rescue breathing. </li></ul>
  12. 13. <ul><li>An automated external defibrillator or AED is a portable electronic device that automatically </li></ul><ul><li>diagnoses the potentially life threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and </li></ul><ul><li>ventricular tachycardia in a patient, and is able to treat them through defibrillation, the </li></ul><ul><li>application of electrical therapy which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to reestablish </li></ul><ul><li>an effective rhythm. AEDs are designed to be simple to use for the layman, and the use of </li></ul><ul><li>AEDs is taught in many first aid, first responder and basic life support (BLS) level CPR </li></ul><ul><li>classes. </li></ul><ul><li>Typically, an AED kit will contain a face shield for providing a </li></ul><ul><li>barrier between patient and first aider during rescue breathing; </li></ul><ul><li>a pair of nitrile rubber gloves; a pair of trauma shears for </li></ul><ul><li>cutting through a patient's clothing to expose the chest; a </li></ul><ul><li>small towel for wiping away any moisture on the chest, and </li></ul><ul><li>a razor for shaving those with very hairy chests. </li></ul>Automated External Defibrillators
  13. 14. Philips HeartStart Defibrillators Whenever, Wherever !!! <ul><li>With more than 175,000 devices deployed, Philips is the worldwide market </li></ul><ul><li>leader in portable defibrillators on airplanes, and in airports, workplaces, </li></ul><ul><li>communities & homes. The Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator is the first and </li></ul><ul><li>only home defibrillator available without a prescription for use by virtually anyone </li></ul><ul><li>to help save a life when minutes count.

  16. 17. Philips HeartStart FR2+ Defibrillator Featuring SMART CPR and Quick Shock <ul><li>SMART CPR - Research shows that for some patients, especially those in long-duration </li></ul><ul><li>cardiac arrest, CPR prior to defibrillation may provide more benefit. The SMART CPR </li></ul><ul><li>algorithm of the HeartStart FR2+ Defibrillator can be configured to look at characteristics of </li></ul><ul><li>a shockable heart rhythm and advise the user to provide either an immediate defibrillation </li></ul><ul><li>shock or CPR first followed by a shock. </li></ul><ul><li>Quick Shock - Research also suggest that the opportunity for survival can be improved if </li></ul><ul><li>interruptions to CPR are minimized. The Quick Shock capability of the HeartStart FR2+ </li></ul><ul><li>Defibrillator readies the defibrillator within seconds to deliver a shock, reducing the time </li></ul><ul><li>between CPR and defibrillation. No other brand can deliver a shock as quickly after CPR. </li></ul>
