Abstract

Background: During recent years, in-hospital cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), management has received much attention. However, the rate of survival after in-hospital resuscitation in Nemazee Hospital is not known. Therefore, this study was designed to evaluate the outcome of in-hospital cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in Shiraz, Iran.

 

Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted on all cases of in-hospital cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Age and sex of patients, shift, time from the onset of cardiac arrest to the initiation of CPR, and also defibrillation, duration and result of CPR were recorded in a checklist.

 

Results: 459 cases of CPR (62.3% males and 37.7% females) were enrolled. The survival rate was similar for both sexes. 1st hr survival was observed in 10.6% of cases and only 0.4% survived to discharge. The key predictors of survival to hospital discharge were CPR duration, time from the onset of cardiac arrest to the initiation of CPR, and defibrillation within the first few minutes of cardiac arrest.

 

Conclusions: More attention must be paid to cardiopulmonary resuscitation managements to promote the survival after cardiopulmonary resuscitation and provide accurate data on our performance with regards to the chain of survival.
