Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest data linkage project: 2017-2018 results

Third report on Scottish Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA) data linkage project tracks key patient outcomes as strategy partners attempt to optimise implementation of the 'Chain of Survival' across Scotland.


The data contained in this report sits in the context of our previous OHCA work and was collated using the same methodology[2].

This report presents results for 2017/18 analysis including data from 1st April 2017 to 31st March 2018. Findings for the 2017/18 period have been put in the context of data from previous years including 2011/12 to 2016/17. This innovative work has linked complex datasets in order to report on OHCA in Scotland. As such, the results should be treated as provisional whilst the data and methodology are still in development. It should be noted for time series analysis that 2013/14 data has been excluded from the analysis due to incomplete data. This data will be updated in due course.
