Recently published Scottish study (Cokljat M et al. 2022) found up to 30% of people who experienced an out-of-hospital arrest had 3 or more SPICT indicators of advanced illness. 80% with 3+ indicators died en route to hospital or soon after.
SPICT can be used to identify people who will benefit from opportunities to talk about CPR decisions as part of a wider ACP conversation.
Using REDMAP can help with these discussions.
