TL;DR: The issue of healthcare inequity is to be discussed based on the authors’ analysis of the literature and the current clinical practice, in addition to making proposals to cope with inequity and reduce the considerable social gap in this area.

TL;DR: The community needs greater awareness about of preserving brain function and systemic protection due to ischemia-reperfusion syndrome, which occurs after of the Cardiac Arrest or when the heart circulation has recovered spontaneously, without to limit efforts of an apparently successful resuscitation.
Abstract: Brain cardiopulmonary resuscitation maneuvers are effective in long term only when there is a brain function preserved. The community has made progress in the knowledge of the survival chain, yet need greater awareness about of preserving brain function and systemic protection due to ischemia-reperfusion syndrome, which occurs after of the Cardiac Arrest or when the heart circulation has recovered spontaneously, without to limit efforts of an apparently successful resuscitation.

TL;DR: A lo largo de la historia han existido distintas formas de comprension del mundo, diferentes acercamientos al conocimiento, and dueno de la verdad, que "transmite" a sus alumnos una informacion como si se tratase de ir llenando vasijas vacias as discussed by the authors.
Abstract: A lo largo de la historia han existido distintas formas de comprension del mundo, diferentes acercamientos al conocimiento, donde el profesor es el centro del sistema educativo, y dueno de la verdad, que “transmite” a sus alumnos una informacion como si se tratase de ir llenando vasijas vacias Se representan concepciones mecanicistas que no logran tener incidencia en la comprension mental ni en la codificacion del conocimiento en la memoria de largo plazo, lo cual genera un culto a la memoria no al pensamiento critico Otros profesores brindan un escenario diferente, de “acompanar” el proceso de aprendizaje, lo cual implica cambiar el paradigma hacia el estudiante, que pasa a ser el centro del proceso del aprendizaje, reivindicando su autonomia, donde cabe la controversia y donde el conocimiento no se transmite sino que se construye

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors analyzed 30,381 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests witnessed in Sweden from January 1, 1990, through December 31, 2011, to determine whether CPR was performed before the arrival of emergency medical services (EMS) and whether early CPR was correlated with survival.

TL;DR: In this paper, a prospective and comprehensive national survey was performed throughout France from 2005 to 2010, involving subjects 10 to 75 years of age, and the overall burden of sports-related sudden death was 4.6 cases per million population per year, with 6% of cases occurring in young competitive athletes.
Abstract: Background— Although such data are available for young competitive athletes, the prevalence, characteristics, and outcome of sports-related sudden death have not been assessed previously in the general population. Methods and Results— A prospective and comprehensive national survey was performed throughout France from 2005 to 2010, involving subjects 10 to 75 years of age. Case detection for sports-related sudden death, including resuscitated cardiac arrest, was undertaken via national ambulance service reporting and Web-based screening of media releases. The overall burden of sports-related sudden death was 4.6 cases per million population per year, with 6% of cases occurring in young competitive athletes. Sensitivity analyses used to address suspected underreporting demonstrated an incidence ranging from 5 to 17 new cases per million population per year. More than 90% of cases occurred in the context of recreational sports. The age of subjects was relatively young (mean±SD 46±15 years), with a predominance of men (95%). Although most cases were witnessed (93%), bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation was only commenced in 30.7% of cases. Bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (odds ratio 3.73, 95% confidence interval 2.19 to 6.39, P<0.0001) and initial use of cardiac defibrillation (odds ratio 3.71, 95% confidence interval 2.07 to 6.64, P<0.0001) were the strongest independent predictors for survival to hospital discharge (15.7%, 95% confidence interval 13.2% to 18.2%). Conclusions— Sports-related sudden death in the general population is considerably more common than previously suspected. Most cases are witnessed, yet bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation was only initiated in one third of cases. Given the often predictable setting of sports-related sudden death and that prompt interventions were significantly associated with improved survival, these data have implications for health services planning.
