Dear Friends and Colleagues, Please find here the final version of our very recently published article on the „World Restart a Heart“ (WRAH) initiative. Following our first attempt in 2012 in Europe, where we were able to get the signatures from 400 Members of the European Parliament for a „Restart a Heart“ day, we are now going worldwide. Our aim is to improve survival following out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, - which ist as you know the third leading cause of death in developed countries – by increasing the rates of lay bystander resuscitation. We have convinced the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) with all its seven regional councils (American Heart Association (AHA), European Resuscitation Council (ERC), and the Asian, Australiazien, Canadian, Inter-American and African Councils) to install an annual WRAH day from 2018 on, every year on October 16. This topic is unique and positive in all aspects. All information about WRAH (f.e. activities, partners) are presented on the ILCOR webpage. For your further information, I have attached our actual WRAH article and the WRAH logo. The ERC Research NET is mentioned in the Acknowledgement section. The LINK to the PDF of our article is via Sciencedirect. This LINK can and should be spread as widely as possible. So please feel free to distribute it further, if you like: https://www.sciencedirect.com/ science/article/pii/ S030095721830176X Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions and/or suggestions. With very best regards Bernd Böttiger
