Table 4 Patient history, concomitant diseases, smoking habits and previous coronary interventions. Indication for referral to the coronary catheterization laboratory, culprit lesion, circulatory state at arrival to the coronary catheterization laboratory, rhythm at the time of the cardiac arrest. Coronary catheterization laboratory procedural data. Comparing those treated with Mechanical CPR and those treated with manual CPR

From: Mechanical chest compressions in the coronary catheterization laboratory to facilitate coronary intervention and survival in patients requiring prolonged resuscitation efforts
