Episode 21 - IHCA during the COVID-19 pandemic: Implications of COVID-19 for resuscitation care

November 14, 2020

Critical illness from COVID19 remains a major challenge to health systems worldwide. When patients progress to in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA), what is the chance of survival?  Studies have so far revealing conflicting answers to this important question.  What is the role of post-arrest care bundles, including TTM, in the care process?  Dr. Felipe Teran will lead a conversation with Dr. Oscar Mitchell, who served as the lead author in a new multicenter study of COVID19 IHCA survival, to be presented as a late-breaking abstract at the Resuscitation Science Symposium.
