Supraglottic Airway with CPR Result In Good Neurologic Outcome

Pre-hospital or emergency use of supra-glottic airway has resulted in good neurological outcome in cardiac arrest victims. The results were also very encouraging for patients who were already receiving CPR. The results and developments made in this study are published in Academic Emergency Medicine journal.

The lead author of the study is Min Ji Park, MD, Department of Emergency Medicine, Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea. Based on their findings, Dr. Park and colleagues recommend further prospective studies to confirm whether the prehospital SGA actually improves oxygenation.

"This study is the first of its kind to take a deeper look on the outcomes of cardiac arrest patients with supra-glottic airways. The authors provide key evidence to support the continued use of supra-glottic airways for EMS as well as sets the stage for further research comparing outcomes of cardiac arrest patients with SGA versus endotracheal intubation," said Daniel P. O'Donnell, MD, associate professor of clinical emergency medicine at Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis.

Dr. O'Donnell is also the deputy medical director for Eskenazi Ambulance Service and the Indianapolis Fire Department as well as medical director for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police S.W.A.T. team and a medical specialist for Indiana Task Force 1, a division of Urban Search and Rescue.
