The aim of the Hospital workgroup of SaveMIHeart is to advocate for an organized, evidence-based approach to post-resuscitation care. Without quality inpatient care and key hospital-based interventions for resuscitated patients, all of the efforts on behalf of the community, 911 dispatchers, and prehospital providers will never come to fruition. To this end, we have outlined a guide to the key components of robust hospital-based post-cardiac arrest care. We have also collected resources and protocols from hospitals across the state of Michigan, and compiled links to important guidelines, best practices, and reference materials.
