Within the Get With The Guidelines–Resuscitation registry, Chan and coauthors identified 42 957 patients who were successfully resuscitated from an in-hospital cardiac arrest. They developed a simple prediction tool for favorable neurological survival in patients successfully resuscitated from an in-hospital cardiac arrest using multivariate logistic regression. Also see the 2279.
