In-hospital cardiac arrest in critically ill patients with covid-19: multicenter cohort study

Anecdotal reports of poor outcomes in critically ill patients with covid-19 who have had in-hospital cardiac arrest have prompted discussions on the futility of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in this patient population. However, data to guide these discussions are lacking. Only two limited reports of in-hospital cardiac arrest in patients with covid-19 have been published to date. A single center study from Wuhan, China included 151 patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest and found that only 3% of patients who received cardiopulmonary resuscitation survived to 30 days. A single center study from New York City that included 31 patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest found that no patient survived to hospital discharge.
