The authors additionally evaluate the main ongoing study in resuscitation technological know-how that might most probably impact the following set of foreign resuscitation guidance. The layout of scientific trials and the moral concerns surrounding resuscitation of either teenagers and adults are mentioned extensively.

As in CIDS, there was a trend toward increased efficacy of the ICD in higher risk subgroups with lower LVEF and higher New York Heart Association (NYHA) heart failure class. Although neither CIDS nor CASH reached statistical significance, the degree of treatment effect was similar to that seen in AVID and these trials are generally viewed a supportive for ICD treatment in secondary prevention of SCD. 28 Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation ICD FOR PRIMARY PREVENTION IN CAD With the rapid evolution of the ICD and its clear effectiveness in treating VAs, it was reasonable to presume that the ICD might be effective in primary prevention of SCD in high-risk patients.
The disappointing history of anti-arrhythmic drug trials for prevention of SCD make these agents unattractive for primary prophylaxis of SCD in lower risk groups. To be useful for this purpose, an agent should have low cost and side-effect profile and negli- 36 Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation gible proarrhythmic risk.
