  1. 'Nonshockable' was defined as asystole or pulseless electrical activity. AUROC, area under the receiver operating characteristic curve; CI, confidence interval; CPR, cardiopulmonary resuscitation; NPV, negative predictive value; PetCO2, partial pressure of end-tidal carbon dioxide; PPV, positive predictive value; ROSC, restoration of spontaneous circulation; SD, standard deviation.
