Aim Comparison of gathered data of project Eureca conducted during 2015. and 2016. as well as their mutual analysis. Method: Prospective study, observational trial of the European Resuscitation Council registered in the trial database - NCT02236819 and approved by health authorities in USA. Collected data from the EMS of Subotica, Sombor, Zrenjanin, Kanjiža, Bačka Palanka, Kragujevac and Niš were analyzed. The data were gathered throughout the whole 2015. and 2016. by the main researcher of every institute and filled into the unique base. The import was online. Application is located on the web address Results: Out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) has been affirmed, by the EMS physicians, in 2015, 160 cases on 100.000 inhabitants, while in 2016, OHCA has been recorded 122/100.000. Cardiopulmonal resuscitation was initiated at 63,3/100.000 in 2015, in 2016, 60/100.000. The most common etiological cause of OHCA is cardiology in both observed years, 27,2/100.000 in 2015, and 36,5/100.000 in 2016. The place of occurrence of OHCA is mostly at home 48/100.000 u 2015. and 43/100.000 in 2016 in observed period. In 1,9/100.000 cases CPR has been guided through the telephone in 2015, in 2016 the number is 4,9/100.000. Bystanders have been present 45,5/100.000 in 2015, while in 2016, bystanders that have been present was 42,5/100.000. CPR was started by bystander 5,0/100.000 in 2015, whilst in 2016, that number is slightly higher 6,7/100.000. Initial rhythm was shockable in 12/100.000 in 2015, while 33,2/100.000 in 2016. AED has not been used in any cases in 2015, and 2016, before EMS arrival. ROSC has been achieved at 10,78/100.000 inhabitants in 2015. That number was 17,6/100.000 in 2016. Conclusion: With the help of two year observation in 2015, and 2016, the number a patients with shockable rhythm and achieved ROSC has increased significantly. Invested effort and more frequent educations of employees in EMS bring us to better results and improved quality of work.
