Abstract

Background: Withdrawing life-sustaining therapy because of perceived poor neurological prognosis (WLST-N) is a common cause of hospital death after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). Although current guidelines recommend against WLST-N before 72. h (WLST-N. 1. h after hospital admission. Propensity score modeling the probability of exposure to WLST-N.
