Is Cardiac Arrest Performed Pulmonary Resuscitation Or Need A Pacemaker.?
hello if when cardiac arrest is done cardiac pulmonary resuscitation alone is enough or does a pacemaker have to be done? and what is the percentage of life safety when only doing resuscitation using a pacemaker?
Hello Daeng Aris, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Not all cardiac arrest is performed pacemaker (defibrillation), where electrocardiography (ECG) checks must be performed, if the EKG shows asystole or pulseless electrical activity (PEA), then pacemakers are not needed, but pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) must be performed according to the procedure. If the ECG in a cardiac arrest patient shows a ventricular fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia without pulse, the CPR can be accompanied by defribrilation or pacemaker.
The success rate of pulmonary resuscitation depends on the patient's condition, the cause of cardiac arrest, age, comorbid disease and the speed of response of health personnel to cardiac arrest. The average survival rate for cardiac arrest (outside the hospital) from AHA (American Heart Association) data is 10-11%, while for cardiac arrest in the hospital is 22-25%. However, if the patient's condition is very severe, it does not rule out the patient can fall into recurring cardiac arrest again.
A few of our suggested answers, hopefully useful.
