Three Practices Have Proven More Effective than Others during In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest

A recent article in Medscape reports that although “not all resuscitation strategies after a patient has an in-hospital cardiac arrest are equally beneficial when it comes to survival rates,” three practices have proven more effective than others. They are “watching closely for chest-compression interruptions,” providing adequate resuscitation training to staff and frequent reviews of previous cardiac arrest cases. These findings were discovered in a study of 131 acute-care hospitals in the United States. The study was published online in JAMA Cardiology.
