Resumen

HERRADA, Luis; SANTELICES, José Luis; ORREGO, Rodrigo  y  DIAZ, Rodrigo. Extracorporeal cardiopulmonay resuscitation: case report on an out-of-hospital cardiopulmonary arrest. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2018, vol.146, n.2, pp.260-265. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/s0034-98872018000200260.

Out-of-hospital cardiopulmonary arrest (OHCA) is highly lethal. Although overall survival is increasing, hospital discharge with good neurological prognosis remains low and highly variable. In some countries, protocols are being implemented, which include techniques in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, allowing a better neurological prognosis for those patients who undergo an OHCA. Following these new techniques and the incorporation of these new protocols already accepted in the guidelines of advanced cardiopulmonary resuscitation, we report a 54 years old male who presented an OHCA and received advanced cardiopulmonary by a professional team in situ. He was transferred to the emergency department, where optimal advanced resuscitation was continued, until the connection to extracorporeal cardiopulmonary support, with the aim of reestablishing blood flow, a technique known as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR: extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation). The patient was discharged from the hospital 25 days later.
