Why in-hospital cardiac arrest?
At Nuvara™, we’re focusing our innovation on a significant and persistent clinical challenge: poor and variable outcomes for in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA). Here’s why.
Clinical and technological innovations have elevated outcomes in many areas of the hospital. But the equipment, technology, and operations supporting Code Blue care have remained essentially unchanged for decades.
This is likely one reason IHCA mortality rates remain persistently high, resulting in nearly 216,000 deaths every year.1
Average IHCA survival rate to discharge (Adults)4,5
Limited progress toward AHA goals
For most hospitals, the 2010 American Heart Association (AHA) performance target for IHCA outcomes remains out of reach. Across the U.S., rates of survival to discharge continue to fall short of this critical goal, showing there’s a clear unmet need for new solutions that target the drivers of this deficiency.
