Acute and fatal cardiac arrest, artificial heart surgery
Acute, fatal heart surgery is not always fatal.
A new study finds that in more than half of the cases, the patients did not need to have surgery.
The study, published online in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, included patients who underwent a cardiac arrest while hospitalized and those who did not.
The patients were aged 18 to 35 years old, and were all from a variety of ethnicities, ages, and incomes.
They had been hospitalized for an unknown condition such as heart failure, congestive heart failure or arrhythmias, the authors write.
The authors found that in the cardiac arrest group, the average age was 38.5 years, and the median age was 39.9 years.
The average duration of stay was 7 days, with an average time from admission to discharge of 7.4 days.
The number of patients receiving surgery was relatively small: just four.
But the average duration was longer, with the average length of stay being 5.6 days.
“This study suggests that the patients with cardiac arrest should not be expected to wait for surgery,” said the study’s senior author, David L. Schumacher, M.D., Ph.
D. “Patients who are admitted to hospital with a cardiac attack will likely require more than a single operation, but the length of time between operations is very short.
In fact, patients who do not require surgery are likely to benefit from additional surgery.”
The authors also note that the average cost of a heart surgery was less than $10,000 in the study.
More: The study authors say they expect that the results of the study will help clinicians in other countries understand the potential benefits of cardiac surgery, and that they hope that the findings will lead to a greater understanding of the benefits of heart surgery.
