Abstract / Description: 

 A substantial reduction in racial differences in survival after in-hospital cardiac arrest has occurred that has been largely mediated by elimination of racial differences in acute resuscitation survival and greater survival improvement at hospitals with a higher proportion of black patients. Further understanding of the mechanisms of this improvement could provide novel insights for the elimination of racial differences in survival for other conditions.
