From: Caring for the Ages
Patient survival after in-hospital cardiac arrest improved substantially in recent years, including in patients older than 65, according to a report from a large registry published online in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Moreover, the rate of clinically significant neurologic disability among survivors has not risen correspondingly; in fact, it also decreased during the same time period, said Dr. Saket Girotra of the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Iowa City, and his associates.
