About

What is NCAA?

The National Cardiac Arrest Audit (NCAA) is the national clinical audit of in-hospital cardiac arrests in the UK and Ireland.

It is a joint initiative between the Resuscitation Council (UK) and ICNARC.



All acute hospitals in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Ireland are welcome to join NCAA.

We welcome enquiries from interested international hospitals who may wish to take advantage of the services we offer via NCAA.

Aims

The aims of the audit are to:

  • improve patient outcomes;
  • decrease incidence of avoidable cardiac arrests;
  • decrease incidence of inappropriate resuscitation; and
  • promote adoption and compliance with evidence-based practice.

Scope of data collection

Any resuscitation event commencing in-hospital where an individual receives chest compression(s) and/or defibrillation and is attended by the hospital-based resuscitation team (or equivalent) in response to a 2222 call.
