Practice-Changing Evidence for the Cardiac Arrest Airway

nextgen learning designed to elevate your airway practice

Here are some of the key studies related to this learning space. Take some time to review to be up to date on all of it, and understand the data driving practice.

Use of a Supraglottic Airway in Cardiac Arrest


Benger JR, Kirby K, Black S, et al. Effect of a Strategy of a Supraglottic Airway Device vs Tracheal Intubation During Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest on Functional Outcome: The AIRWAYS-2 Randomized Clinical Trial. JAMA. 2018;320(8):779-791. doi:10.1001/jama.2018.11597

bottom line

Endotracheal intubation is unlikely to provide additional benefit over using a supraglottic airway device in most cases of cardiac arrest. Individual judgment on a case-by-case basis is recommended.
