Show Notes

In a recent podcast we reviewed the ARREST Trial, which demonstrated significant improvement in survival among OHCA patients at a single center randomized to ECPR and early coronary angiography upon arrival.  In this podcast we discuss the latest trial to investigate whether a bundle of early transport, ECPR, and coronary angiography improves favorable neurologic survival in patients with refractory OHCA.
