  1. NS not statistically significant (P > 0.05)
  2. 1Simplified WHO/ECOG-classification before cardiac arrest
  3. 2Not shockable, initial cardiac rhythm during resuscitation not shockable (asystole/pulseless electrical activity)
  4. 3ROSC delay, time from collapse to return of spontaneous circulation
  5. 4Not witnessed, collapse not witnessed
