Aim: The paper aims to analyze the outcome of emergency medical intervention by the Emergency medical sevices (EMS) in out of hospital cardiac arrest, with a non-shockable rhytms of PEA / Asystole. Methodology Data was collected during the prospective clinical trial of EuReCa_ONE and through a single questionnaire related to the out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) in the period of September 2014 June 2017 - Clinical Trial NCT02236819. The collected datas were analyzed by the use of a standard statistical methods (SPSS). Results In mentioned period 4172 EuReCa events – OHCA occurred. In 1618/4172 (38%), the EMS initiated CPR . The initial non-shockable rhythm (PEA / asystole) were recorded on the monitor by the EMS in 1279/1618 (79%) cases. Return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) was recorded in 170/1279 (13%) patients. Conclusion The non-shockable rhytms (PEA / asystole) as the first detected rhythm in patients with cardiac arrest recorded outside the hospital is not a good prognostic sign and is associated with the survival rate. Although the rate is low, a number of patients survived and there is no a reason to withhold any resuscitation measures by the EMS.
