Abstract

Prognostic tools for decision-making whether to continue advanced life support or limit life sustaining interventions in In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest (IHCA), remain scarce and inconclusive. In this regard it seems intuitive that the presence of aortic stenosis (AS) impacts on both central and peripheral perfusion during resuscitative attempts and might worsen outcome. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the prognostic value of AS on outcome after IHCA.
