The level of coronary perfusion generated during resuscitation of cardiac arrest is, clearly, an important determinant of resuscitation success. Therefore, optimizing the components of coronary perfusion-the pump and the load-is key to improving patient survivability following cardiac arrest. Research that fully characterizes these components and perfects current techniques and develops new ones is clearly needed and is, in part, underway.
