Percutaneous cardiopulmonary support (CPS) was initiated in 9 patients to provide haemodynamic stability after failure of conventional resuscitation. 4 patients were in cardiogenic shock and 4 remained in asystole, with 1 in resistant ventricular fibrillation, after cardiac arrest. During CPS for those in cardiogenic shock, the mean intra-arterial pressures ranged from 65 to 100 mm Hg (mean 84), at flow rates of between 3 to 5 l/min (mean 3.9). 2 patients underwent technically successful coronary angioplasty. No patient in this group survived. In the cardiac arrest group, acceptable mean intra-arterial blood pressures were achieved (mean 95, range 90-100 mm Hg) at flow rates of between 2 to 3 l/min (mean 2.6). All 5 subjects underwent technically successful coronary angioplasty whilst on CPS. 4 survived. 2 were alive and well at 12 months follow-up, 1 of whom had returned to work; the third is alive and well at 4 months.
