Cardiac arrest study: Basic life support is more effective

ANA SmartBrief | Nov 26, 2014

A study in JAMA Internal Medicine found that cardiac arrest victims survive longer when paramedics perform basic life support, which includes cardiopulmonary resuscitation, compared with advanced life support. Based on a sample of urban Medicare claims for ambulance service from 2009 to 2001, 13% of cardiac arrest patients given basic life support lived to be discharged, compared with 9% of those given advanced life support.
