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.

"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.
