BACKGROUND Various studies have indicated that glucocorticoid supplementation during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), in conjunction with vasopressors, may improve outcomes in instances of cardiac arrest. However, further population-based analysis is warranted with respect to resuscitative and long-term survival benefits conferred by administering glucocorticoids in this setting. METHODS A total of 145,644 adult patients who experienced non-traumatic, cardiac arrest occurred at emergency… CONTINUE READING
