Effects of prehospital epinephrine administration on neurological outcomes in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest

20130801-060427.jpg

Just released online a retrospective study of prehospital epinephrine/adrenaline on neurologic outcomes in OHCA! Showing benefit in sub group with CPR 15-19 min duration

Read and decide for yourself!

Effects of prehospital epinephrine administration on neurological outcomes in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest

Editor’s opinion: I have always believed epinephrine has a role in cardiac arrest. This study indicates that for short cardiac arrest times it adds little to outcomes which makes sense considering the other resuscitation evidence. It also indicates the longer the arrest time the worse outcomes. Once again totally logical. What it adds is more evidence refuting past studies that neurologic outcomes improve if shorter arrest times and improved ROSC. This is very logical to me.
