Objectives: The hypothermic to ischemic ratio (HI Ratio) has been previously identified as a potential predictor of survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). We investigated its association with functional outcome in the Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium (ROC) Amiodarone, Lidocaine, or Placebo Study (ALPS). Methods: We included adult, non-traumatic, witnessed, OHCA patients screened for ROC-ALPS who survived to hospital between May 2012 and October 2015. Structured data were… CONTINUE READING
