Immediate epinephrine administration is associated with better rates of ROSC for up to 24-h for in-hospital cardiopulmonary arrests with non-shockable rhythms. This is achievable in the in-hospital setting. Therefore, we encourage initiating immediate CPR in conjunction with immediate epinephrine administration. Larger studies are required to investigate on the benefits of immediate epinephrine administration.
