Improving survival from cardiac arrest

The European Society of Cardiology’s annual congress highlighted the importance of early diagnosis of cardiac issues, providing essential guidance on detecting common symptoms of cardiac arrest, as well as optimising treatment to improve outcomes.

The European Society of Cardiology’s annual congress highlighted the importance of early diagnosis of cardiac issues, providing essential guidance on detecting common symptoms of cardiac arrest, as well as optimising treatment to improve outcomes. High on the agenda were the missed opportunities for early intervention for many patients and the need to raise awareness of key warning signs. 

Cardiac arrest is a life-threatening condition where the heart suddenly stops. It is fatal without cardiopulmonary resuscitation and an electric shock from an automated external defibrillator (AED). Each minute without treatment decreases the chance of survival. A key issue raised at the European Society of Cardiology’s annual congress was the need to tackle missed opportunities for early intervention to improve survival in patients – from faster recognition of the warning signs to faster delivery of life saving interventions.
