A project to set up an Irish Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Register (OHCAR) was established in November 2007 in accordance with the recommendations of the Report of the Task Force on Sudden Cardiac Death (2006). The purpose of the Register is to enable further understanding and research into OHCAR in Ireland. By quantifying and describing cardiac arrests that occur in the community the register will enable: - Investigation of the determinations of survival/death from OHCAR - Investigation of the effect of interventions on survival/death - Monitoring of survival from OHCAR and subsequent quality of life.
