Survival Trends for In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest | News Brief

At hospitals participating in the Get With the Guidelines–Resuscitation registry, survival and neurologic outcomes following in-hospital cardiac arrest appear to have improved between 2000 and 2009. During a study, rates of survival to discharge increased from 13.7% to 22.3% for hospitals participating in the program. Rates of clinically significant neurologic disability among survivors decreased from 32.9% to 28.1%. These improvements were attributable to enhanced acute resuscitation survival and post-resuscitation survival.
