We reviewed 32 studies to determine whether patient-related factors predict the effectiveness of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) of hospitalized patients.
Limitations of individual studies are described.
Single factors and multiple factors, as used in the Pre-arrest Morbidity (POM) Index, were examined for their ability to predict CPR outcome.
Although certain clinical conditions appear to predict CPR survival best, other individual patient-related factors influence the effectiveness of CPR.
The POM Index is superior to single factors in predicting survival after CPR in hospitalized patients, possibly because it is multifactorial.
