Effects of prehospital epinephrine administration on neurological outcomes in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest
Editor’s opinion: I have always believed epinephrine has a role in cardiac arrest. This study indicates that for short cardiac arrest times it adds little to outcomes which makes sense considering the other resuscitation evidence. It also indicates the longer the arrest time the worse outcomes. Once again totally logical. What it adds is more evidence refuting past studies that neurologic outcomes improve if shorter arrest times and improved ROSC. This is very logical to me.
