Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of using a bag-valve-mask (BVM) or endotracheal intubation (EI), and administering epinephrine during the transfer of Out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrests (OHCA) cases, and to show the effects of BVM or EI, and epinephrine use on discharge from the hospital and patient survival.
Material and Methods: Totally 109 OHCA patients were included in the study. Group 1 included patients in whom return of spontaneous circulation was achieved after Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and who were then discharged from the hospital within 30 days. Group 2 included patients who died after emergency CPR or hospitalization. A Student’s t-test was used for normally distributed continuous values, and a Chi-square (χ2) test was used for numerical data.
Results: Sixteen (14.7%) of the OHCA cases survived and were discharged within 30 days, and 93 (85.3%) died. The outcomes were similar between those who received endotracheal intubation (EI) and BVM during hospital transfer (p = 0.569). Epinephrine was administered to 15 (19.2%) patients in group 2 and 5 (45.4%) patients in group 1 during the transfer period, but this difference was not significant (p = 0.167). Logistic regression modelling did not find an association between type of airway management, epinephrine use and 30-day discharge survival.
Conclusion: The results of this study show that epinephrine had no effect on patient survival or hospital discharge in OHCA patients. Additionally, the effects of EI and BVM on 30-day survival and hospital discharge were similar.

Keywords: Out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA); epinephrine; bag-valve-mask (BVM); cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
