AIM Resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) increases coronary and cerebral perfusion pressure, which might improve neurologically intact survival after refractory cardiac arrest. We investigated the feasibility of REBOA during CPR in the emergency department. METHODS Patients in refractory cardiac arrest not qualifying for extracorporeal CPR were included in this pilot study. An introducer sheath was placed by ultrasound-guided puncture of the femoral artery, and a REBOA catheter was...
