Intubation in Arrest

SCANCRIT -  June 25, 2017 By Thomas D
"Another study on airway management in cardiac arrest was just published in JAMA. The study was done in Denmark, where all intubations elective and emergency are done by anaesthestetists. It was a retrospective study, where they matched intubated patients with historical arrest patients not intubated at that same point in resus time. Intubation lowered the pt’s chance of survival to discharge with CPC. So, another study against intubation in cardiac arrest. Or?...
The real conclusion
From the studies we have now, we can confidently say that intubation with or without CPR pauses still harms the patient with a standard ventilation strategy, which often is hyperventilation by hand. Ventilation should be low and slow."
