This cohort study uses Get With the Guidelines–Resuscitation registry data to evaluate the association between use of therapeutic hypothermia and survival after in-hospital cardiac arrest.
This Viewpoint argues that rapid expansion of programs that protect patients from unwanted resuscitation has outpaced the evidence supporting the programs and may compromise patient-centered decision making more broadly.
This study of patients successfully resuscitated after an inpatient cardiac arrest assessed whether their postevent do-not-resuscitate staus was appropriate given their neurological prognosis.
This study uses data for pediatric patients from the Get With the Guidelines–Resuscitation registry to report associations between delay in epinephrine and survival and neurological outcome after pediatric in-hospital cardiac arrest.
This randomized trial reports that among patients with severe trauma and major bleeding, early administration of plasma, platelets, and red blood cells in a 1:1:1 ratio compared with a 1:1:2 ratio did not result in significant differences in mortality at 24 hours or at 30 days.
Kim and coauthors report on the effect of prehospital induction of mild hypothermia on survival and neurological status among adults with cardiac arrest. In an accompanying Editorial, Granger and Becker discuss the use of prehospital and immediate cardiac therapies.
To examine temporal changes in bystander resuscitation attempts and survival during a 10-year period in which several national initiatives were taken to increase rates of bystander resuscitation and improve advanced care, Wissenberg and coauthors assessed Danish Cardiac Arrest Registry records from 19 468 patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
Mentzelopoulos and coauthors conducted a randomized clinical trial among 268 patients to investigate survival to hospital discharge with favorable neurological status after treatment with combined vasopressin-epinephrine and methylprednisolone during cardiopulmonary resuscitation and stress-dose hydrocortisone in postresuscitation shock.
