Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cardiac arrest is a life-threatening condition that requires immediate treatment with a multidisciplinary approach based on the famous concept of the "life support chain". In recent decades, great efforts have been made to improve outcomes for patients with cardiac arrest; however, survival rates for both in-hospital and out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA and OHCA) remain very low.

This Special Issue provides an overview of the current treatment option for cardiac arrest and summarises the state of the art for post-procedure management, including medical therapy, with a combination of original research and review papers.

Topics will include:

- The epidemiology of cardiac arrest and its outcomes;

- The predictors of successful CPR;

- The use of mechanical circulatory supports for refractory cardiac arrest;

- Acute post-resuscitation care and follow-up.
