Survival to hospital discharge after out-of-hospital car- diac arrest (OHCA) varies widely. This study describes short- term survival after OHCA in a region with an extensive care path and a follow-up of 1 year.

Consecutive patients ≥16 years admitted to the emergency department between April 2011 and December 2012 were included. In July 2014 a follow-up took place. Socio-demographic data, characteristics of the OHCA and interventions were described and associations with survival were determined.
