Abstract 109: The Comparison The Artifact By The Usual Electrocardiogram Versus The Dynamic Monitorlizer ( RadarcircTm) During Chest Compressions Of Cardiac Arrest Patients
[Background] The 2005 American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and emergency cardiovascular care (ECC), increased emphasis on importance of the chest compressions. These guidelines developed that rhythm checks should be very brief. The dynamic monitorlizer (RADARCIRC™) was developed to reduce the artifact, but there is no study for the artifact during chest compressions of cardiac arrest patients. Our purpose was to compare the effect of the artifact by the usual electrocardiogram versus RADARCIRC™.
[Materials and methods] We observed rhythms during chest compressions of 20 cardiac arrest patients by the usual electrocardiogram and the RADARCIRC™.
[Results] Almost of all rhythm by the RADARCIRC™ reduced artifact. Image-1 is a typical rhythm (asystole) by the usual electrocardiogram. Image-2 is a typical one by the RADARCIRC™.
[Conclusions] RADARCIRC™ will be able to shorten the time checking rhythm, because of reduce the artifact during CPR. Image-1: A typical rhythm (asystole) by the usual electrocardiogram Image-2: A typical rhytum (asystole) by the RADARCIRC™.
