Abstract

Objective: To analyze the characteristics of patients surviving from a Cardiopulmonary Arrest (CPA) and identify factors related to the survival to hospital discharge in adults. Method: Analytical, prospective, quantitative study, developed in a tertiary public hospital in Campo Grande, the capital of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, in the adult, general and cardiac ICU. Results: 78 survivors of CPA were evaluated, 38.5% had hospital discharge, all showed only one CPA event, while those who evolved to death had two or more events. There was an association between the number of CPA and the outcome, and the relationship between the use of vasoactive drugs and kidney failure with death. Conclusion: CPA remains a survival event and outcome variables. Currently, there are no prognostic models able to identify which patients would not benefit from resuscitation. Studies on this topic must be multiplied to increase knowledge on the subject and contribute to current statistics scarce, and increase understanding of these events.
