Should we delay EKG post-ROSC? The PEACE study

What if we could change the timing of our post-ROSC ECG and better select those who warrant emergent catheterization?


There has been significant development and change surrounding which patients are best served by immediate revascularization post-ROSC over the past 12-18 months.

On that note, we’ve discussed the COACT study previously on the MCHD Paramedic Podcast, but uncertainty still exists.

OHCA and post-ROSC patients are wildly heterogenous, and one size will never fit all. What if we could simply change the timing of our post-ROSC ECG and better select those with true acute coronary occlusions that warrant emergent catheterization?

That’s the topic of our journal review on this episode – a simple, logical idea that has potentially powerful ramifications. Listen in for the details.
