There is considerable variation in the incidence of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) across Europe. The likelihood of attempted resuscitation also varies. To better understand the factors that contribute to variation, more data on incidence, management and outcomes from OHCA is required. A European, multi-centre study provides the opportunity to uncover differences throughout Europe and may help find explanations for these differences. Results may also have potential to support the development of quality benchmarking between European Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
This prospective European study will involve 27 different countries. It provides a common Utstein-based dataset, data collection methodology and a common data collection period for all participants, thereby potentially increasing comparability.
Study research questions will address the following: OHCA incidence in different European regions; incidence of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) attempted; initial presenting rhythm in patients where bystanders or EMS starts CPR or any other resuscitation intervention; rate of any return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC); patient status at handover to a hospital i.e. ROSC, ongoing CPR, dead; incidence of patients still alive 30 days after OHCA; incidence of patients discharged alive from hospital.

|Actual Primary Completion Date :||December 2014|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||December 2014|
- incidence of patients still alive 30 days after out of hospital cardiac arrest or patients discharged alive from hospital [ Time Frame: 30 days after OHCA ]co primary outcome is ROSC/admission to hospital in cases, victims have no ROSC or died on scene
- patient status at handover to a hospital [ Time Frame: Hospital admission after EMS treatment (within first 24h after OHCA) ]Timepoint/Timestamp within the first 24 hours after EMS treatment started
- return of spontaneous circulation [ Time Frame: during the time period of EMS treatment within the first 24 h after OHCA ]ROSC at any time during the treatment of EMS after OHCA during the first 24 h
