European Registry of Cardiac arrest (EuReCa) is an international European project for collecting and analyzing out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). The European Resuscitation Council (ERC) initiated a campaign in 2007 for a Europe-wide collaboration. The establishment of a European cardiac arrest registry is intended to allow international analysis of resuscitation treatments in different emergency service systems. EuReCa is intended to offer both existing and new registries an option to collaborate internationally, providing a platform for joint scientific activities.
So far EuReCa has resulted in two major publications:
Participating countries have a great responsibility for the overall project and have to cover all expenses from their own funds. Only very limited overall financial resources are available for EuReCa.
