OHCA literature review

Examining the evidence for managing intubation attempts, PEA and ETCO2 for out of hospital cardiac arrest

It’s time to review some recent cardiac arrest literature. In this episode of the MCHD Paramedic Podcast, we break down two articles from “Resuscitation” that address predictors of OHCA survival:

  • What about PEA arrest; can ETCO2 help identify pseudo-PEA?

Listen to get some OHCA literature updates.
