Effect of Bag-Mask Ventilation vs Endotracheal Intubation During Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation on Neurological Outcome After Out-of-Hospital Cardiorespiratory Arrest

Jabra P, Penaloza A, Pinero D, et al. Jama 2018;319(8):779-787
      Airway management during cardiopulmonary arrest is a contentious issue and subject to great debate. Previous retrospective studies have identified associations between endotracheal intubation (ETI) during CPR and increased mortality. Many pre-hospital clinicians would argue that bag-mask ventilation (BMV) is superior in terms of survival during advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) because it is a less complex technique with fewer complications that does not interfere with administration of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
