To further understand the relationship between partial complex seizures and ictal asystole
, we review three case studies of near-SUDEP.
Diltiazem and verapamil may lead to a severe clinical picture characterized with bradicardia, conduction disorders (sinus arrest, asystole
, AV block), vasodilatation and hypotension (5).
Considering diagnosis and treatment in turn, they examine such topics as new onset focal and generalized epilepsy in an elderly patient, epileptic falling seizures associated with seizure-induced cardiac asystole
in drug-resistant temporal lobe epilepsy, epileptic negative myoclonus in benign rolandic epilepsy, carefully combining medications for women with gastric reflux, and functional hemispherotomy for drug-resistant post-traumatic epilepsy.
During injection induced hypotension and transient cardiac asystole
are sometimes employed to reduce flow through the AVM and improve the accuracy of placement of the embolic material.
049), while there was a trend towards significance in terms of the time from asystole
to flush (p = 0.
during hypobaric chamber training/Alcak basinc ortaminda olusan hipokside uzamis asistoli.
There are various clinical algorithms in which ultrasound is used during cardiac arrest to confirm asystole
or pulseless electrical activity (PEA).
Hyperkalaemia can induce life-threatening cardiac dysrhythmias--ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation, bradycardia, complete heart block or asystole
On the tenth post-operative day, she became suddenly unresponsive due to a bradyarrhythmia that progressed to asystole
A list of the circumstances under which paramedics can forgo an attempt at resuscitation for adults included the following: (1) a valid DNAR; (2) a valid AHCD with one of the following present at scene: (a) an AHCD with written DNAR instructions, or (b) the agent identified in the AHCD requesting no resuscitation; (3) immediate family member present at scene: (a) with a Living Will or DPAHC on scene requesting no resuscitation, or (b) without said documents at scene, with full agreement of others if present, requesting no resuscitation; or (4) patient in asystole
without cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and the estimated time from collapse to bystander CPR or EMS initiating BLS measures is greater than 10 minutes.
Recipients of kidney transplants from donors in asystole
and brain death: differences in nursing care
Cardiac arrhythmias required intervention in more than 22% of cases, and included asystole
(12%), ventricular tachycardia/fibrillation/flutter (8%), paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (2%), sinus bradycardia (46%), and sinus tachycardia (75%).
The evidence showed that defibrillation is not indicated for a patient in an asystolic state and that shocking a patient in asystole
could, in fact, be detrimental to the heart muscle.
The case he makes is quite clear: given a DCD policy of two human bodies suffering asystole
, having exactly the same physiological conditions, one might be recognized as not dead and resuscitated (because he had no do-not-resuscitate order), while the other is declared dead (because he had a DNR and consented to DCD).
Ten percent isopropanol also brought about marked irregularities in rhythm, brief periods of asystole
, and proved fatal to one animal out of the eight tested.
