Hospitals with more-active participation in conducting standardized in-situ mock codes have improved survival after in-hospital cardiopulmonary arrest.


AIM:The American Heart Association (AHA) and the Institute of Medicine have published a national "call-to-action" to improve survival from in-hospital cardiopulmonary arrest (IHCA). Our aim was to determine if more-active hospital participation in standardized in-situ mock code (ISMC) training is associated with increased IHCA survival. METHODS:We performed an ecological study across a multi-state healthcare system comprising 26 hospitals. Hospital-level ISMC performance was measured during 2016-2017 and IHCA hospital discharge survival rates in 2017. We performed univariate and multivariate analysis of the hospital-level association between more-active ISCM participation and IHCA survival, with adjustment for hospital expected mortality as determined by a commercial severity scoring system. Other potential confounders were analyzed using univariate statistics. RESULTS:Hospitals with more-active ISMC participation conducted a median of 17.6 ISMCs/100 beds/year (vs 3.2/100 beds/year in less-active hospitals, p = 0.001) in 2016-2017. 220,379 patients were admitted and 3289 experienced IHCA in study hospitals in 2017, with an overall survival rate of 37.4%. Hospitals with more-active ISMC participation had a mean IHCA survival rate of 42.8% vs. 31.8% in hospitals with less-active ISMC participation (p < 0.0001), and a significantly reduced odds ratio (OR) of 0.62 for IHCA mortality (95% CI: 0.54-0.72; p < 0.0001) which was unchanged after adjustment for hospital-level expected mortality (adjusted OR: 0.62; 95% CI: 0.54-0.71; p < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS:Hospitals in our healthcare system with more-active ISMC participation have higher IHCA survival. Prospective trials are needed to establish the efficacy of standardized ISMC training programs in improving patient survival after cardiac arrest.
