Post-Arrest Care Updates – Are Mild Hypercapnia and a Pan-CT Protocol Useful?


Care of the patient with ROSC following OHCA can be complex and typically includes a protocolized approach to optimizing oxygenation, ventilation, hemodynamics, early cardiac catheterization for patients with STEMI, seizure detection, and possibly TTM.  In this podcast, we review two recent articles that focused on the use of mild hypercapnia compared with normocapnia in post arrest patients and the use of a pan-CT protocol to detect critical time sensitive conditions and complications.
