This thesis examines the burden of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) of non-cardiac aetiologies in Victoria, Australia. In this region, the majority of OHCA will be precipitated by non-cardiac aetiologies by 2052. This finding suggests that there is a need for cause-specific prevention interventions to counteract the increase in incidence of non-cardiac OHCA cases. Additionally, survival in non-cardiac OHCA is modestly improving in Victoria, Australia, and resuscitation efforts in some non-cardiac populations are not necessarily futile. These findings suggest that there is some potential for improvement in existing treatment interventions in these populations.
