ETI vs. SGA: The Verdict Is In
This study had several important limitations. The EMS agencies that participated in this trial have many years of experience in OHCA research, including additional training on CPR quality performance. As previously noted, due to limitations in funding, we couldn’t assess the influence of CPR quality. We studied a relatively limited number of out-of-hospital and in-hospital adverse events. It also wasn’t possible to blind EMS providers to treatment assignment. Although randomization was uneven in two sites, the overall characteristics of the study groups were similar. We observed a lower than expected ETI success rate; ...
