Sudden cardiac arrest survivors are invited to participate in ongoing research by the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation that aims to identify variables and trends related to cardiac arrest survival among its members.
The brief online survey asks questions about the location of the event, underlying causes, types of interventions, and outcomes. It also asks whether survivors are interested in participating in other research, such as studies led by hospitals and universities. In addition, it asks whether survivors would like to participate in media interviews, community outreach, and speaking opportunities.
Summary reports about the characteristics of survivors in our database are made from time to time, but patient information is de-identified and information is reported only in the aggregate (e.g. percentage of survivors who are male). No personal information is shared with anyone.
