Recent studies reported survival was higher among patients who received bag-valve-mask (BVM) than those receiving endotracheal intubation (ETI) or supraglottic airway (SGA). The aim of this study was to compare neurologically favorable survival outcomes among adult nontraumatic OHCA patients by prehospital airway.
