CARES, the Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival led by Dr. Bryan McNally

CARES, the Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival led by Dr. Bryan McNally of Emory Emergency Medicine, has been singled out by a newly released Institute of Medicine report as potentially "providing a strong foundation" for a national registry to track out-of-hospital cardiac arrests. The IOM report recommends the establishment of such a registry as part of an initiative to "significantly improve the likelihood of survival and favorable neurologic outcomes following a cardiac arrest." The related CARES Report on the Public Health Burden of Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest was commissioned by the IOM Committee on Treatment of Cardiac Arrest. See the Emory Health Sciences News release for more details.
