Abstract: Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is a leading cause of death in the US, unpredictably affecting some 300,000 citizens annually. Of these patients, about 40,000 OHCA victims annually require post-cardiac arrest care, a statistic that is likely to increase. Recent studies have shown that early implementation of a post-cardiac arrest care bundle can improve survival and neurologic function.
