A Multicenter Evaluation of Survival After In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest in Coronavirus Disease 2019 Patients

From Critical Care Explorations.  In-hospital cardiac arrest survival among coronavirus disease 2019 patients has been reported to range from 0% to 12% -- significantly lower than reported prepandemic in-hospital cardiac arrest survival rates of approximately 20% to 25% in the United States for non–coronavirus disease 2019 patients. In this multi-center study, the authors report a 22% survival to discharge after in-hospital cardiac arrest in coronavirus disease 2019 patients, a survival rate similar with before the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic.
