CARES can make a difference

CARES helps communities measure performance and identify how to improve cardiac arrest survival rates. By joining CARES, communities gain more than just access to information that will help them improve performance and save lives. They also contribute to one of the largest EMS registries in the world, and one of the few that also includes patient outcome information from hospitals. Those features enable CARES data to be used to conduct vital research that furthers our knowledge of cardiac arrest treatment and saves countless lives for years to come.

Benefits of joining CARES

  • Join a network of communities working together to increase survival from sudden cardiac arrest
  • Compare your community to local, state, and national performance and discover ways to improve your emergency medical system's response to cardiac arrest
  • Use simple, HIPAA-compliant, web-based software to link EMS and hospital data, creating a single record for each OHCA event
  • Access multiple real-time reporting features, including charts, graphs, and tables for use in reports, presentations, and more
  • Receive training and ongoing support from CARES staff to get the most out of participation, including one-on-one consultation to review your community's annual report and comparison to national benchmarks


Quality of Layperson CPR Instructions From Artificial Intelligence Voice Assistants

Abstract: Despite widespread cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) courses, 46% of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest cases have layperson CPR performed. Layperson CPR is associated with an increase survival by 2- to 4-fold. Artificial intelligence (AI) voice assistants (VAs) are becoming ubiquitous and m 

Bystander CPR and Long-Term Survival in Older Adults With Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest

Most studies on bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) have focused on in-hospital or short-term survival. The purpose of this study was to examine the association between bystander CPR and long-term survival outcomes for OHCA. Within the Cardiac Arre
