The scientific not not agreed on the optimal energy for initial and subsequent biphasic shocks.

Best settings for Biphasic Automated Defibrillators InvestigatedAs the use of automated external defibrillator devices outside of hospital settings increases, the scientific not not agreed on the optimal energy for initial and subsequent biphasic shocks. A study at the 2006 Society for Academic Emergency Medicine Annual Meeting, May 18-21, presented in 2006 in San Francisco investigated both fixed and escalating biphasic energy schemes for out-of – hospital cardiac arrest.

Abstracts of the papers will be published in the May issue of the official journal of the SAEM, Academic Emergency Medicine.. In the first shock, the prices of termination and conversion for for the two regimens. For subsequent shocks, however, the rates were higher in both termination and transition regime for the escalating than the fixed energy. The study does not demonstrate a difference in other outcomes between the two regimens was , however,, however, This is the first do so. This is the first randomized trial of fixed and escalating biphasic energy to compare treatments, and it was a successful termination of VF and conversion to an organized rhythm for secondary shocks with the escalating regimen -. A much larger study will be necessary to determine whether these differences in electrical results translate to a difference in the survival rate. Continue reading

5 micrometers in diameter as PM2.

But, despite a huge improvement in air quality since the fifties using this method scientific studies show that long-term exposure to fine particulate matter – less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter as PM2.5 – are risk of death from risk of death from heart disease in all grown. And in March, the government reported Environmental Audit Committee that a long-term exposure to air pollution may be a factor in the deaths of 35,000 to 50,000 people each year in the UK to be[1]. MORE.

It was in the fifties different when the direct links between air pollution and mortality were much more clearly – for example, the 1952 Great Smog of London, the city wrapped in a four days ‘pea souper ‘ was estimated caused 4,000 deaths. This led directly to the Clean Air Act of 1956. Continue reading
