Every year a large number of patients suffer from cardiac arrest and must be reanimated. The German Resuscitation Registry was founded in 2007 in order to analyze and optimize these measures. The registry documents the course of reanimated patients at the time points first aid, further management and long-term outcome and can thus provide a complete presentation of the procedures and the quality of the outcome. Furthermore, important scientific questions can be answered from the database containing at present details of 24,000 resuscitations: for example, a score for benchmarking the outcome quality after out-of-hospital resuscitation (the so-called RACA score) has been developed. In addition, the major significance of percutaneous catheter interventions and active cooling after cardiac arrest has been demonstrated. In future, the platform of the German Resuscitation Registry will be further expanded to enable an interdisciplinary exchange of information as well as scientific research.
