PURPOSE: Arrhythmia and sudden cardiac decompensation (AMI or acute heart failure) are the most often causes of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). Emergency cardiac catheterization for resuscitated OHCA patients with one or more cardiac risk factors followed by coronary revascularization (PCI or CABG) or valvular surgery is a life saving procedure. However, the result of these ER resuscitated OHCA patients (pts) underwent cardiac invasive procedure was not well defined.
