Invasive coronary treatment strategies for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: a consensus statement from the EAPCI and Stent for Life group
Due to significant improvement in the pre-hospital treatment of patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), an increasing number of initially resuscitated patients are being admitted to hospitals. Because of the limited data available and lack of clear guideline recommendations, experts from the EAPCI and “Stent for Life” (SFL) groups reviewed existing literature and provided practical guidelines on selection of patients for immediate coronary angiography (CAG), PCI strategy, concomitant antiplatelet/anticoagulation treatment, haemodynamic support and use of therapeutic hypothermia.

This initiative aims to improve the delivery of care and patient access to the life saving indications of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (p-PCI), thereby reducing mortality and morbidity in patients suffering from acute coronary syndromes (ACS).
Poised to become the reference for interventional practioners, the PCR-EAPCI Textbook offers four volumes dedicated to diagnosis, coronary interventions, structural heart disease, peripheral interventions and perspectives. Both clinically and practically oriented, the Textbook covers everything today‘s interventional needs to know. 10 chapters of the Textbook have been accredited by EBAC (European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology) for a total of 20 External CME credits* All versions available on our online bookstore
