Core Tip Patients who have an in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA) event often have poor prognosis and their survival to discharge rates are dismal. Despite advancements in resuscitation, including the use of target temperature management, the prognosis for these patients has not improved over the past 30 years. Markers that are inexpensive and easy to use that may provide some prognostic information after an IHCA event are needed. A neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio greater than 4.5 may be a useful prognostic tool and marker for increased risk of death in patients with IHCA. In addition, older age, elevated serum lactate level were also independent predictors of death.
