Abstract

It is estimated that about 30 000 people a year are successfully resuscitated after having suffered an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in Europe. The number of patients that are successfully resuscitated after an in-hospital cardiac arrest is not known, but it can be assumed that this figure is even higher than that after an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. The aim of the Swedish Resuscitation Council is to gather together people with specific skills in the field of cardiac arrest in a single organisation. The council has five specific aims: 1) To develop guidelines for the treatment of cardiac arrest, 2) To develop specific educational programmes for the treatment of cardiac arrest, 3) To develop ethical guidelines for the treatment of...

It is estimated that about 30 000 people a year are successfully resuscitated after having suffered an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in Europe. The number of patients that are successfully resuscitated after an in-hospital cardiac arrest is not known, but it can be assumed that this figure is even higher than that after an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. The aim of the Swedish Resuscitation Council is to gather together people with specific skills in the field of cardiac arrest in a single organisation. The council has five specific aims: 1) To develop guidelines for the treatment of cardiac arrest, 2) To develop specific educational programmes for the treatment of cardiac arrest, 3) To develop ethical guidelines for the treatment of cardiac arrest, 4) To spread knowledge in the community and in health care about the treatment of cardiac arrest and 5) To follow the effect of these efforts in terms of survival and cerebral function after cardiac arrest. In the present article, the Swedish Resuscitation Council is presented in greater detail.
