Bag-Mask Ventilation Fails to Improve on Endotracheal Intubation in Cardiac Arrest

BARCELONA, SPAIN--Bag-mask ventilation fails to improve on endotracheal intubation in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients, according to late-breaking results from the CAAM trial presented today at the European Society of Cardiology Congress.

“Sudden cardiac arrest is the main cause of death worldwide in previously healthy people,” said principal investigator Prof Frederic Adnet, an emergency physician at Avicenne Hospital in Bobigny, France. “Each year it causes 300,000 deaths in the US and more than 200,000 in Europe. Less than 10% of patients survive out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.”

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
