Aim of the Study To use the Utstein Templates for Resuscitation Registries to evaluate the outcome and impact factors of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) at Hainan Provincial People's Hospital in China.

Material and Methods According to the “Utstein style” for CPR, a CPR registry form was designed and registry research methods were employed to study the epidemiological characteristics, outcome, and impact factors of CPR in 511 patients presented to the Emergency Department requiring CRP.

Results A total of 511 CPR patients were registered, including 356 males (69.7%). The highest CPR rates were observed for 45–54, 55–64, and 65–74 year old patients. Cardiovascular diseases (190 cases, 36.5%) and cerebrovascular diseases (48 cases, 9.2%) were common in the medical histories of included patients. The ROSC and survival to discharge rates were 46.96% (139 patients) and 13.51% (40 patients) in patients treated only with in-hospital CPR but 16.74% (36 patients) and 4.65% (10 patients), in CPR patients treated prior to presentation to the Emergency Department (p<0.01), respectively.

Conclusions These results are comparable with those of international horizontal studies using the “Utstein style.” Nonetheless, the data collected in this study indicate that the survival to discharge rates for patients treated with in-hospital CPR are low and that the effectiveness of CPR needs to be improved.
