81. Association Between Tracheal Intubation During Pediatric In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest and Survival.

Association Between Tracheal Intubation During Pediatric In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest and Survival. Importance: Tracheal intubation is common during pediatric in-hospital cardiac arrest, although the relationship between intubation during cardiac arrest and outcomes is unknown. Objective: To determine if intubation during pediatric in-hospital cardiac arrest is associated with improved outcomes. Design, Setting, and Participants: Observational study of data from United States hospitals in the Get (...) With The Guidelines-Resuscitation registry. Pediatric patients (<18 years) with index in-hospital cardiac arrest between January 2000 and December 2014 were included. Patients who were receiving assisted ventilation, had an invasive airway in place, or both at the time chest compressions were initiated were excluded. Exposures: Tracheal intubation during cardiac arrest . Main Outcomes and Measures: The primary outcome was survival to hospital discharge. Secondary outcomes included return of spontaneous

85. Early Identification of Patients With Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest With No Chance of Survival and Consideration for Organ Donation.

Early Identification of Patients With Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest With No Chance of Survival and Consideration for Organ Donation. Background: In patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), care requirements can conflict with the need to promptly focus efforts on organ donation in patients who are pronounced dead.
