Abstract

Cardiac arrest is a sudden stop in effective blood circulation due to failure of the heart to contract effectively or at all. The present study analyses cardiac arrest in Modena during year 2012. 118 has assisted 1142 people in cardiac arrest. 652 patients were in cardiac arrest for a cardiac reason, 172 for trauma, 85 for respiratory reasons, 21 for drugs, 34 for neurologic reasons, 104 for tumoral reasons, 33 for bleeding. In 355 cases cardiac resuscitation was made. 230 were male and 125 female. The median age was 73,8 years old. For 255 patients cardiac arrest happened at home The return to a normal circulation happened in 85 people. 36 patients survived and were discharged from hospital. For the future it is necessary to spread to population basic life support and BLSD to improve the outcome.
