The use of closed chest cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has, since its initial description in 1960, expanded greatly.
Recently, much energy has focused on identifying patients' probabilities of responding to CPR.
The goal of this study was to determine the current rate of successful CPR in two community teaching hospitals and to identify patient characteristics associated with the likelihood of successful resuscitation.
A retrospective review of the medical records of all patients receiving CPR during 1988 and 1989 intwo university-affiliated teaching hospitals.
This review identified 300 patients who experienced in-hospital cardiopulmonary arrest during the study period.
