Abstract
This book presents a valuable new perspective on Post-Cardiac Arrest Syndrome (PCAS), which was defined as system failure following whole-body ischemia-reperfusion injuries by the 2008 International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation. Recently, improving the survival rate of PCAS has become a major priority all over the world. A Perspective on Post-Cardiac Arrest Syndrome addresses various aspects, including: neurological outcomes in non-convulsive status epilepticus, target temperature management, interventions for PCAS after acute coronary syndrome, the significance of measuring lactate clearance, a specific scoring system in prognostication for PCAS, therapeutic indications for suicide hanging cases. This book will help a broad readership, including emergency physicians, intensivists, cardiologists and neurologists treating PCAS patients, to understand the history, current issues and future challenges in PCAS, presented by respected experts in this field.
Contents
1. A single center study on the nonconvulsive status epilepticus after cardiac arrest -- 2. Comparision of neurological outcomes between PCI-first and TTM-first strategies in OHCA patients -- 3. Early lactate clearance is associated with improved outcomes of post-cardiac arrest syndrome -- 4. Indication for target temperature management in patients after choking or suicide hanging -- 5. Prediction in nuerological outcomes in cardiac arrest patients before inducing target temperature management -validation of CAST or cCAST Score.

Abstract
Resuscitation is a two-stage process comprising the achievement/maintenance of spontaneous circulation and post-resuscitation management. The approach is complex and multifaceted and entails the integration of new physiological insights, pharmacological options, and technological advances. The purpose of this volume, written by top experts in the field, is to promote, share, and disseminate new advances in resuscitation and post-resuscitation care. The issues addressed are wide ranging and of great topical interest or controversy. They include priorities of intervention, quality of resuscitation, use of mechanical supports, new defibrillation strategies, prevention of organ damage, strategies in cases of sudden cardiac death, new pharmacological treatments, and post-resuscitation care, including temperature management and prediction and improvement of outcome after cardiac arrest. Particular attention is devoted to up-to-date evidence from the most recent experimental and clinical trials on resuscitation science and to gold standard evidence-based resuscitation and post-resuscitation treatments and interventions. In addition, organizational models and integrated care systems for trauma are considered, and critical care education and the process of guideline development are reviewed.

Abstract
Therapeutic hypothermia (TH) has emerged as an important treatment option for patients resuscitated from cardiac arrest as it provides significant protection from developing neurologic injury. Although hospitals and medical centres have become familiar with this intervention, it still remains greatly under-utilized due to a lack of experience and resources to deploy such a program safely and effectively. Therapeutic Hypothermia After Cardiac Arrest provides an evidence-based approach to identifying and managing cardiac arrest patients who are appropriate for TH. The Editor has assembled a team of prominent experts in the field to provide a practical "how-to" book that presents the reader with the necessary tools to design, apply and successfully manage a TH program at their institution. As such, this book will address the needs of emergency medicine physicians and staff, intensivists, internists, cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, interventionalists and nursing staff.
Contents
1. Introduction -- 2. Pre-hospital therapeutic hypothermia -- 3. Molecular Mechanism of Reperfusion Injury -- 4. Cardiac Arrest: Who Should Be Cooled? -- 5. Hypothermia: How to Cool -- 6. How to Implement Therapeutic Hypothermia in the Hospital -- 7. Post-Cardiac Arrest: How to Develop and Implement a Standard Therapeutic Hypothermia Protocol? -- 8. Complications of Therapeutic Hypothermia Following Cardiac Arrest -- 9. Pharmacology & Therapeutic Hypothermia -- 10. Determination of Neurological Prognosis -- 11. Therapeutic hypothermia as a treatment of myocardial infarction and cardiogenic shock -- Index.
