Selective application of cardiopulmonary resuscitation improves survival rates.
This study is a retrospective review of all patients who died without cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) or who sustained a sudden cardiopulmonary arrest in the hospital and received CPR during a 2-yr period at a large medical center.
Based on a review of Current Procedural Terminology codes, patients were classified into one of the ten disease categories: multiple medical problems, acute disease, procedure-related, congenital disease, neoplasm, metastatic neoplasm, trauma, burn, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, and dementia.
A total of 1206 patient deaths without a CPR effort were identified.
CPR was administered to another 550 patients who had a sudden cardiopulmonary arrest, of which 71% survived the resuscitative attempt initially, but only 25% survival CPR until discharge from the hospital.
