EuReCa Serbia One 2014 - Research Center Sombor: Research results for October 2014. and comparative analysis with results for Republic of Serbia
Dom zdravlja 'Dr Đorđe Lazić' Služba hitne medicinske pomoći, Sombor
INTRODUCTION: The most common cause of the out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is heart disease and then we are talking about sudden cardiac death (SCD), which is manifested by the loss of consciousness within one hour from the begining of the acute changes in the function of the cardiovascular system. Epidemiological data of OHCA in Europe are insufficient, while in Serbia do not exist. From 2014. Resuscitation Council of Serbia provides an opportunity for independent participation of the numeruous environments within EuReCa One Serbia 2014 in order to improve this situation. Data collecting was conducted in the period from 1st until 31st October 2014. with monthly tracking of the survival of the patients with return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). AIM: With the comparative analysis of the obtained data via EuReCa One questionnaires show epidemiological differences of OHCA from our research center in relation to the summary results for the Republic if Serbia. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The prospective study, collecting data through questionnaires related to patients with cardiac arrest during the month of October 2014 in all research centers in the Republic of Serbia, and than comparative analysis of data obtained in the research center of Sombor with summary data from all research centers in Serbia. RESULTS: Incidence of the OHCA in Serbia is almost five times higher than in the municipality of Sombor. Further analysis shows that in the municipality of Sombor, OHCA almost always happened in the presence of bystanders, that the resuscitation was always started and that bystanders were twice as likely to provide basic life support measures until the arrival of the rescue team. Establishing of the ROSC on the field is three times greater in the municipality of Sombor. Also in the municipality of Sombor is higher incidence of the victims that survived OHCA after 30 days than at the national level. The distribution according to etiological causes of the OHCA does not differ significantly from the republic, noting that in the municipality of Sombor most of the OHCA are as consequence of cardiovascular pathology. CONCLUSION: There is a big difference between countries as well as between regions within countries in terms of epidemiology of the OHCA. A small number of respondents, conditioned by time and space limitations in this project prevents from making any relevant conclusion. Because of everything said projects like EuReCa One further on need to provide a better understanding of OHCA and thus better management of this condition, both in our center and at all research centers in the Republic of Serbia.
