The National Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Register (OHCAR) The National Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Register (OHCAR) project was established in June 2007 in response to a recommendation in the “Report of the Task Force on Sudden Cardiac Death”.
The need for OHCAR has been reinforced in the policy document “Changing Cardiovascular Health” and the “Emergency Medicine Programme Strategy”. Since 2012, OHCAR has become one of a small number of OHCA registries in Europe with national coverage.
Many other European countries operate out of hospital cardiac (OHCA) arrest registers with partial geographical and/or intermittent coverage.
