The authors of this review utilize the term dual sequential defibrillation DSD. They present a case of RVF in a patient with cardiac arrest, on whom DSD was successful in reversion to sinus rhythm and provide a thorough review of similar cases in the literature.

Given the duration of a defibrillation waveform, I suspect true simultaneous defibrillation is hard to impossible to achieve without some form of automatic synchronising of devices. May also get some odd surface current paths.

Intervention: Does any specific alteration in treatment algorithm eg, fibrinolytics, or any other intervention.

Focused cardiac ultrasound FoCUS is emerging in emergency medical systems, particularly in the context of prognostication in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Furthermore, concerns have been raised that FoCUS can distract people from providing other essential and evidenced elements of care. This broad literature search aims to shed light on the practice of FoCUS in cardiac arrest by reviewing articles related to in-hospital and out-of-hospital practice.
Metrics details. In-hospital cardiac arrest IHCA is a major adverse event with a high mortality rate if not treated appropriately. Evidence pertaining to neurological outcomes after ECPR is still scarce. We performed a comprehensive systematic search of all studies up to December 20, A score of 1 or 2 was defined as favourable outcome.
