Cardiac Studies

Rescu conducts many cardiac research trials throughout Ontario, and in the United States from 2006-2015 with the Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium (ROC). These trials study a wide range of topics, from resuscitation in cardiac arrest and myocardial infarction to post-arrest care. There has been a six-fold increase in cardiac arrest survival from a historical low of less than 2% in 2006 to 12% in 2015 in our trial participation regions, while adjacent non-participating regions have remained unchanged.
