Steve Bernard – FIRST, DO NO OXYGEN

Observational clinical studies that the administration of 100% oxygen during the first few hours following resuscitation may increase both cardiac and neurological injury. The JAMA (The Journal of the American Medical Association) explains “Association Between Arterial Hyperoxia Following Resuscitation From Cardiac Arrest an In-Hospital Mortality” that you can find here.

Clinical trials are underway to test whether titrated oxygen to a target oxygen saturation of 90-94% in the immediate hours after ROSC results in improved outcomes compared with 100% oxygen.
