According to this study:

  • Administration of epinephrine to adults who'd had out-of-hospital cardiac arrest resulted in a significantly higher 30-day survival rate than the use of placebo.
  • A higher proportion of patients who survived in the epinephrine group, however, had severe neurologic impairment.
