  • Models were simplified by sequential elimination of terms and interactions that were not significant for at least one of the two outcomes. Significant covariate estimates are denoted in bold assuming a significance level of 5% and estimates are log odds.

  • CPR, cardiopulmonary resuscitation; NTCA, non-traumatic cardiac arrest.
