Podcast 771: Intubation in Cardiac Arrest

Contributor: Don Stader, MD

Educational Pearls:

  • In a secondary analysis of the PART trial, the mortality effect of timing of airway management for patients in cardiac arrest was examined
  • Study looked at whether timing played a part in both laryngeal tube placement or endotracheal intubation during cardiac arrest
  • Did not find any association of timing and survival to hospital discharge
  • High-quality CPR and defibrillation are the only two things that improve outcomes in cardiac arrest
