MONDAY, May 4, 2015 – New research from Denmark finds that more cardiac arrest survivors are returning to work, because more bystanders are performing CPR. "We already know CPR helps save lives – and now our findings suggest there is even more benefit in performing it," study author Dr. Kristian Kragholm, a clinical assistant at Aalborg University Hospital and Aarhus University in Aalborg, said in an American Heart Association (AHA) news release. He is also a fellow at the Duke Clinical Research Institute in Durham, N.C. For the new study, researchers tracked over 4,300 people in Denmark who had jobs prior to experiencing cardiac arrest between 2001 and 2011. The study only included people who were not in a hospital at the time of their cardiac arrest. More than 75 percent of the survivors were capable of returning to work, and their chances of doing so were about 40 percent higher in ... Read more

FRIDAY, May 1, 2015 – Many rural residents with severe heart attacks drive or are driven to the hospital, but they have a better chance of survival if they call 911, a new study finds. Researchers looked at 774 people in rural Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota who suffered a severe type of heart attack in 2013 and 2014. Fifty-two percent of them arrived at the hospital in their own vehicles, rather than calling 911. The average time it took to get to the hospital was 38 minutes for patients who traveled in their own vehicles and 26 minutes for those brought by ambulance. The average time it took from arriving at the hospital to receiving heart artery-opening treatment was 57 minutes for those who traveled in their own vehicles and 42 minutes for those who arrived by ambulance. The study was published April 29 in the American Heart Association (AHA) journal Circulation: ... Read more
