The fact that early intravenous drug use showed improved ROSC and survival to hospital admission but no difference in survival to discharge could provide an impetus for better postresuscitation care of the so-called 'post-cardiac arrest syndrome'. Improved postresuscitation care, strategies for neuro- and cardio-protection, including therapeutic hypothermia, early cardiac catheterization and attention to glucose and other metabolic abnormalities, could result in improved longer-term survival.[94–101]
