Cochrane review of adrenaline
Aus-ROC Director Professor Judith Finn has led the Cochrane Review of Adrenaline for cardiac arrest. The review concluded: ..”that standard-dose adrenaline compared to placebo improves return of spontaneous circulation, survival to hospital admission and survival to hospital discharge, but low-quality evidence that it did not affect survival with a favourable neurological outcome”.
