Survival from out-of-hospital ventricular fibrillation cardiac arrest is extremely variable throughout Europe with high survival rates of more than 50% and low survival rates with single digit percentages. Even more fundamental is the fact that only very few communities in Europe have rigorously measured and reported their survival rates. Most communities have no idea how they are performing in terms of managing sudden cardiac arrest. Why is this? There are answers. As proven in several communities within Europe, like Stavanger/Norway, Canton Ticino/Switzerland, Helsinki/Finland, etc. managers and directors of EMS systems can learn the steps they need to take to improve survival.
The goal of the European Resuscitation Academy is to improve survival from cardiac arrest. This will be achieved through the enrollment of EMS managers, EMS directors and EMS medical directors, in a program conducted by the European Resuscitation Academy and the local host community.
