AIM There is little data to inform the appropriate duration of resuscitation attempts for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). We assessed the relationship of elapsed duration since commencement of resuscitation and outcomes, highlighting differences between initial shockable and non-shockable rhythms. METHODS We examined consecutive adult non-traumatic EMS-treated OHCA in a single health region. We plotted the time-dependent accrual of patients with ROSC, as well as dynamic estimates of… CONTINUE READING
