    INSTRUCTIONS

    Use pre-arrest information to calculate.

    Pearls/Pitfalls
    Why Use

    Derived on registry-based data split into derivation and validation sets.

    Patients and families sometimes have unrealistic expectations of quality of life after surviving in-hospital cardiac arrest. The GO-FAR Score may help in discussions regarding code status and prognosis.
