Authors' recomendations: The ResQPOD has shown some promise in early trials improving surrogate markers of survival. As so few patients in either normal or ResQPOD treated groups survive to hospital discharge, the studies reviewed here lack the power to elucidate any long term survival changes. Due to the lack of evidence supporting any long term benefits of the ResQPOD, HealthPACT has recommended that further assessment of this technology is no longer warranted.
