A meta-analysis for survival found that in-hospital patients have a better chance of survival following cardiopulmonary arrest than out-of-hospital arrests. Better neurological outcome was also seen, but data were too scarce for meta-analysis.
Dr Phillips said "The limitations of the evidence found has highlighted the need to collect potentially predictive data on these rare events so we can understand more clearly the predictors of survival and long-term neurological outcome. We are already planning the next phase of research in this area."
