Gasping during cardiac arrest linked to improved survival, brain function
from Cardiovascular Business
Gasping during cardiac arrest was associated with a nearly four-fold increase of one-year survival with favorable brain function, according to a study of 1,888 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCAs). When combined with an initial shockable rhythm, gasping was linked to a 57-fold higher rate of one-year survival with favorable neurological function than victims displaying neither characteristic.
