PART (Pragmatic Airway Resuscitation Trial)
Effectiveness of Airway Interventions in Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA)
The objective of this multi-center pragmatic trial is to compare the effectiveness of primary (initial) endotracheal intubation (ETI) versus primary (initial) laryngeal tube (LT) airway management strategies upon 72-hour survival after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA).
The primary null hypothesis is that 72-hour survival is similar between primary Laryngeal Tube (LT) SGA and primary ETI airway management strategies. Evaluated secondary outcomes will include return of spontaneous circulation, survival to hospital discharge, neurologically intact survival at hospital discharge, airway management performance, and clinical adverse events.
