Factors influencing CPR outcome in Siriraj Hospital

, : Factors influencing CPR outcome in Siriraj Hospital. Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand 81(11): 835-843

This prospective study of cardiopulmonary resuscitation was surveyed in Siriraj Hospital from 1 March 1996 to 31 May 1996. In a 3-month-period, 94 resuscitated patients were reported with initial survivors 31 cases (33%) and 3 patients (3%) were alive until discharged from the hospital. Most of the resuscitated patients belonged to the emergency department (47%) with the lowest survival rate (23%). The common causes of cardiac arrest were heart diseases (31%) and respiratory failure (21%). All survivors who were able to be discharged from the hospital had suffered cardiac arrest from heart diseases. After resuscitation, only half of the initial survivors received postarrest care in the intensive care units, the rest remained in general wards and outpatient department. By using logistic regression for multivariate analysis, the survival rate was correlated with locations of CPR, duration of CPR and duration of attempt endotracheal intubation. The initial survival outcome of CPR was not related to sex, age, time of day of CPR, duration of hospitalization before CPR, types of arrhythmia, delay in doctors' arrival and performers of CPR.
