Abstract

Background: Cardiac arrest is a major global health concern. It accounts for almost 30% of the global mortality rate, with a poor survival rate for In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest, with worse survival rate for Out-Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA). We aimed to establish an OHCA in Saudi Arabia, to provide a benchmark to determine the best practice protocols for out of hospital cardiac arrest in the country. Methods and Analysis: Saudi Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest Registry (SOHAR) collects data in two phases, namely prehospital and receiving hospital, and the data will be linked internally. SOHAR was established a year ago, and the registry already contains more than 1,100 cases and is growing rapidly. The patient data will be entered by the regional coordinators in an on-line data management system, designed exclusively for this project. Ethics and Dissemination: The study was approved and funded by King Abdullah International Medical Research Center (IRBC/0748/20). On completion of the study analysis, we are planning to discuss the findings with the study team and collaborators, and finalize the dissemination strategy of the main findings. Conclusion and Contribution to the field: The first OHCA in Saudi Arabia; Registering the survival rate of OHCA patients; Providing feedback to key stockholder organizations to develop a future plan to adopt an evidence-based policy for OHCA in Saudi Arabia.
