A clinical score for outcomes of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest treated with extracorporeal CPR


  • The TiPS65 scoring system developed may predict favorable neurological outcome after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) with shockable rhythm (SR) treated with extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR).

Why this matters

    While ECPR has been shown to be a good option for patients with OHCA and ventricular fibrillation, it is invasive, expensive, and resource-laden; understanding which patients will best benefit from ECPR will allow for more targeted resource allocation and improved treatment outcomes.
