Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Surveillance — Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival (CARES), United States, October 1, 2005–December 31, 2010

This report provides surveillance data on out-of-hospital cardiac arrest events that occurred in the United States during October 1, 2005–December 31, 2010. This is the first report to provide summary data from an OHCA surveillance registry in the United States. Each year, approximately 300,000 persons in the United States experience an OHCA; approximately 92% of persons who experience an OHCA event die. The majority of persons who experience an OHCA event do not receive bystander-assisted cardiopulmonary resuscitation or other timely interventions that improve the likelihood of survival to hospital discharge (e.g., defibrillation). Efforts to increase survival rates should focus on timely and effective delivery of interventions by bystanders and emergency medical services (EMS) personnel.
