This important study helps us to understand the outcomes of in-hospital CPR from a Medicare registry in US adults receiving maintenance hemodialysis.  The annual incidence of CPR for the overall cohort was 1.4 events per 1000 in-hospital days with a  total of 21.9% CPR recipients surviving to hospital discharge.  The median post discharge survival was 5 months.
