Cardiac arrest PGY1 PGY2 PGY3 PGY4

NEJM study in 2016 showed no survival benefits or favorable neurological outcome regarding use of Amiodarone vs Lidocaine vs placebo in OHCA. In a recent publication by Acad Emerg Med, a post hoc analysis of original study was done and the authors found time to Amiodarone in OHCA could be associated with better survival to discharge if it was given within 8 minutes.
