Approximately 1.5 million people in the United States have an acute coronary syndrome (ACS), which account for 500,000 deaths yearly. Over 350,000 of these patients with ACS present with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Although diagnostic and therapeutic modalities for ACS have continued to evolve leading to improved survival rates, the same cannot be said for those who experience sudden death. At present, only 10% CPR attempts whether in-hospital or out-of-hospital result in survival. This has lead to continued examination of old and new methodologies of artificial circulation in cardiac arrest.
