EuReCa is a project of the European Resuscitation Council (ERC).
EuReCa One is an international European
project for collecting and analysing
resuscitation events during October 2014.
All registries throughout Europe, able to
provide at least the core data demanded, were invited to participate in study. (EuReCa One Dataset)
The aim of the study was to determine the incidence, process, and outcome for OHCA throughout Europe. A total of 27 countries provided data to the project 1.
The authors concluded, the study demonstrated marked differences in the processes for data collection and reported outcomes following OHCA across Europe. Using the data and analyses, different countries, regions, systems, and concepts can benchmark themselves and may learn from each other to further improve survival following one of the major health care events.
