Study compares the survival rates of cardiac arrest in catheterization lab, versus the OR and ICU

People who went into cardiac arrest in the cardiac catheterization lab were more likely to survive to hospital discharge than those who had a cardiac arrest in the intensive care unit (ICU), yet less likely to survive than those who had an arrest in the operating room (OR), according to preliminary research to be presented at the American Heart Association’s Resuscitation Science Symposium (ReSS) 2021.
