Brief description Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is the most common cause of death from heart attacks. Although victims of OHCA typically experience hours of warning symptoms, the majority underestimate their significance and fail to take early action. This research explores whether a public awareness campaign can help to prevent OHCA by increasing public knowledge of the warning symptoms and the importance of accessing ambulance care. The findings will help shape the direction of future campaigns.
