Women have a dramatically lower risk of sports-related sudden cardiac arrest (Sr SCA)

1. More people are taking up sports, however, there is a concern about Sr-SCA. A recent study compared the rates of Sr-SCA in women & men in Europe.
#cardiacarrest #MedTwitter #sports
2. Out of 34,826 sudden cardiac arrests (SCA) between 2006 and 2017, 760 (2.2%) were sports-related.
Only 54 (7.1%) incidents of SCA occurred in women as compared to 706 in men.
Men had >13 times higher incidence of Sr-SCA as compared to women (0.19 vs 2.63 cases per million).
3. In addition, women seem to have a lower risk of incident atrial fibrillation (AF) at moderate or vigorous levels of physical activity, as compared to men… Image

Realized friends are your strength and support system no matter how far and wide they maybe spread. Talking to a friend or chatting to them even briefly can greatly reduce stress levels! #friendship
Twitter became a source of dissipating health information and education which is a favorite thing for me to do. Grew a good number of followers over the last 3 years. #heartattack , #cardiacarrest, #prevention of heart disease being the major topics. Hoping to make a difference!

A survivor of #cardiacarrest. 61y old guy. Post angioplasty and stenting, May, 2022. He said..
"I want to make sure I don't get into trouble again Dr! I've seen how much stress you and your team were under when I was on Cath lab table to save my life" #MedTwitter #HeartAttack
When a patient comes in with heart attack and cardiac arrest or cardiogenic shock, the entire cardiac team is put into test. Reviving the patient, talking and explaining to relatives, quickly shifting to cath lab, doing an emergency angiogram and angioplasty. Making sure the……
Despite all valiant efforts, both cardiac arrest and cardiogenic shock have poor survival. Out of hospital cardiac arrests have the worst outcome. Hence the need to learn #CPR with which atleast some people can be saved.

Why the number of cases of #HeartAttack have increased significantly ?

A man died of #CardiacArrest during a Haldi ceremony at Kalapathar area.

A police constable Vishal (24) died, allegedly due to a #cardiac arrest during a workout at a gym in Bowenpally area.

A 19 yr old Muthyam died, reportedly of #CardiacArrest, collapsed while he was dancing in a wedding reception at Pardi K village in Kubeer mandal of #Nirmal dist.

Another #HeartAttack,
A 38 yr old Shyam collapsed while playing badminton, in #Hyderabad.
In visuals people take turns to check if he is breathing, If life-saving #CPR had been administered early, he would have probably been alive.
Need awareness on CPR for all.

#Pfizer lied to people all along. They documented 1290 distinct adverse events during clinical trials of the COVID vaccines.

#VaccineSideEffects were real and they were massive.

AV dissociation, capture beats and fusion beats are all hallmarks of ventricular tachycardia

A simple understanding 👇

#CardioTwitter #Cardiology #Medtwitter
What’s a “capture beat” ?

During ventricular tachycardia, sometimes the SA nodal firing takes control of independent ventricular depolarization for brief moment, as this happens, “CAPTURE BEATS” appear. They are nothing but a brief moment of normal looking P-QRS pattern Image
Whats a “fusion beat” ?

During ventricular tachycardia, sometimes the SA nodal impulse and the independent ventricular impulse combine together to create a mix looking P-QRS pattern called fusion beats.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) during Sports Activity in Older adults

1. We occasionally hear about apparently healthy people collapsing and dying while running, cycling or working out at gym.
A recent study looked at the prevalence of sports-related SCA in people aged >65 years.
2. Salient findings of the study and their implications
#gym #running #fitness #sports #cardiacarrest
#MedTwitter #CardioTwitter
3. Of 4,078 SCAs among people ≥65 years of age, 77 were Sports-related SCA (1.9%; 91% men).
The annual Sport-related SCA incidence among ≥65 years was 3.3/100,000 in Portland and 2.1/100,000 in Ventura. The most common associated activities were cycling, gym, and running.

As part of the @ILCOR_org Pediatric life support taskforce we reviewed evidence for accuracy of tests for predicting GOOD neurological outcome following #Cardiacarrest in children
🧵of key DRAFT recommendations.

#Pedsicu #NeuroPICU
#Prediction of good neurological outcome is a key role for #PedsICU clinicians in #postarrestcare phase of #chainofsurvival.
Improving prognostic #uncertainty may help clinicians choose treatments, counsel families, and answer accurately, "Will my child be OK?“
The #PLS taskforce conducted a #systematicreview of literature reporting prognostic tests used in children after cardiac arrest.
Four types of tests were evaluated:
*Clinical examination
*Blood biomarkers
*Brain Imaging

Having received a number of texts and calls tonight....

as a emergency doc who studies cardiac arrest for a living: a mini thread on CPR and #cardiacarrest

#hamlin #CPR #BuffaloBills #emergencymedicine

cardiac arrest is when the heart stops - abruptly and with little warning

this is different than a "heart attack" when there is a blockage to a coronary artery, and USUALLY the heart doesn't stop

cardiac arrest is 100% fatal UNLESS actions are taken immediately - those actions include CPR and the use of a defibrillator

माननीय प्रधानमंत्री जी,
आज कल अचानक हार्ट फेलियर के कारण काफी लोग,खास कर युवाओं की आकस्मिक/असमय मृत्यु हो रही है।
1)ऐसी असमय मृत्यु का कारण ढूंढने के लिए एक रिसर्च टीम गठित करे जो इन मृत्यु का कारण ढूंढे ओर साथ ही सभी हॉस्पिटल्स को एडवाइजरी जारी करे।
2)एक नेशनल पोर्टल बनाये जो ऐसी आकस्मिक मृत्यु को दर्ज करे।
3)देशवासियो से अपील है कि ऐसी घटनाओं को एक जगह एकत्रित करके लगातार सरकार और सोशल मीडिया पर शेयर करे ताकि जागरूकता फैल सके,साथ ही डॉक्टर्स,हॉस्पिटल,रिसर्चर्स,रिसर्च संस्थानों को भी टैग करे ।
4)कोरोना वैक्सीन ओर कोरोना का इंसान पर क्या प्रभाव पड़ा है इसकी भी रिसर्च होनी चाहिए।
ये रिसर्च जल्द से जल्द प्रकाशित करनी चाहिए।

@ESICM 2020 ILCOR consensus : strong recommendation to use "ADRENALINE" in cardiac arrest, if you dont have it "LIDOCAINE".

Adrenaline to placebo comparison is mainly 1 older trial with latest PARAMEDIC 2
@ESICM PARAMEDIC 2 - big study
8007 pts, adrenaline 4000, placebo 3999
- a lot of discussion post trial
- need a nuanced interpretation.

5 Critical Mental Models for Performing Under Pressure

It’s dangerous to go alone! Take these:

- The Yerkes Dodson Curve
- The ITSO Matrix
- The Wedge Model
- The Island Chain Approach
- The Prepare - Perform - Recover - Evolve Cycle

🧵+ Video ⬇️
The Yerkes Dodson Curve

Inverse U or Bell-Curve relationship between performance and stress.

Figure out and leverage your optimal amount of stress - not too little, not too much.

If overloaded ("right shifted"), deploy tactics to bring you back to optimal ("left shift").
How much stress is “optimal”?

What does being right shifted feel like?

What left shifts you back to center?

All these questions require experimenting on/with yourself - there’s no one-size fits all answer.

Start by looking inward: when you're overloaded, how do you know?

“Doctor why do I need to take this letter to my physician? It’s just a tooth l! Just take it out! What does my heart have to do with it?”

If you are a dentist, you have heard this line many many times!

Here’s why:

Old family friend.

Wife passed away many years ago due to

Son in the US!

Not much going on for him other than a job!

Over the last few years, ended up neglecting his health!

His diabetes was through the roof!

The 3 month average, HbA1C, was around 10 for years! (Even for diabetics it should be under 7)
Tried very hard to motivate him to address it! No change!

Wears an upper complete denture and has a few broken teeth in the lower jaw!

Met someone who got a full mouth implant rehabilitation done and so now wanted the same!

FINALLY got it to 7.5ish in December!

Sudden deaths and the fear among doctors
I was forced to post this write up for some of my students who wanted me to comment on sudden death of a few of the young and energetic people, including doctors, due to massive myocardial infarction- obviously everyone is upset about this issue now.
It is frightening, especially when we hear that at least a few of them were fitness freaks too- that further heightened the fear psychosis to newer levels in the Covid scenario.

Timely CPR saved Chris Eriksen's life.
The match footage shows
-how immediate collapse is after #CardiacArrest
-how quickly we need to respond
In Cardiac Arrest the heart stops while other organs are healthy: rapid CPR response saves lives.
Learn CPR: see @ResusCouncilUK
There has been criticism of TV companies broadcasting footage of Eriksen's on-pitch collapse. I wonder what he will say when he is ready to comment.
I hope the footage drives better public understanding of CPR & a wider uptake of CPR training.
CPR training must include info on success rates, & explain when NOT to attempt it. CPR is entirely appropriate when the heart stops first: it gives brain & other organs their best chance of preserving function. Early, effective CPR by trained people may save 1 in 5.
Learn CPR!

Whilst the new #RESUS21 guidelines don’t introduce any significant changes, here are some take homes that I believe are worth highlighting. A thread....

#FOAMed #FOAMems #cardiacarrest #resuscitation
“Ambulance services should monitor staff exposure to resuscitation and low exposure should be addressed to increase experience”

It will be interesting to see if, and how, ambulance trusts follow this guidance.
“Adult patients with non-traumatic OHCA should be considered for transport to a cardiac arrest centre”

Pathways for OHCA in the U.K. have been variable. Will this stimulate more standardisation? Prehospital staff need to nail the post-ROSC care bundle. Transport times longer?

BREAKING: Data analysts found a THIRTY PERCENT (30%) overall excess death mortality in 25-44 yro's in Tennessee. It hints STRONGLY That they died of #coronavirus #CardiacArrest like what we saw in this age group in Italy and China & the deaths were covered up. Just like in China!
@Trinitydraco1 This has legs. I bet the same bump is in Florida and Texas, too.
These are YEAR TO DATE, too... if we extend it another 5 months, you're looking at 70%+ excess mortality...

(1/3) Timeline of a #covidiot.

37 yro Richard Rose of Ohio said he thought #coronavirus was "a hoax" and was very pro-Trump and very strong anti-masker, like @SarahConner39.

April 28th: he said this: Image
(2/3) July 1st he became symptomatic and got tested with a rapid test. Confirmed #coronavirus positive.

On 2 July 2020, he posted this: Image
(3/3) The next day, July 3rd he posted this.

But by July 4th, he was *DEAD*! #CardiacArrest, probably from #CytokineStorm.
