Brief Summary:

Near-Hanging is a catastrophic event that has been merely studied in the literature. We aimed to report the outcomes, and early predictors of hospital survivors in critically ill patients with near-hanging.

Patients admitted to 31 university or university-affiliated participating ICUs in France and Belgium between 1992 and 2014 were studied retrospectively. Hospital survival was the main judgment criterion.

Ages Eligible for Study:   Child, Adult, Older Adult
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
All eligible cases extracted from the participation ICUs hospital registries were included in the present study if they were older than 18 years, with in- or out-of-hospital near-hanging self-arm, and if they required ICU management.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • any of the following code corresponding in the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, 10th Revision: Intentional self-harm by hanging, strangulation and suffocation (X70). Local investigators reviewed the medical records of the patients thus identified to select adults admitted to the ICU after successfully resuscitated near-hanging injury.
  • older than 18 years
  • requiring ICU management
