Abstract: 

Establishment of coronary care units (CCU) causes decreasing in hospital's mortality after cardiac arrest, because life threatening arrhythmias could be reversible by effective measures. The aim of this study was ascertainment of short term (in hospital) prognosis of patients who admitted in Hamadan's Ekbatan Hospital's CCU and experienced cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) after cardiac arrest.
This study was descriptive, cross-sectional and prospective and included 101 patients who admitted in CCU since 1997 to 1998 and experienced at least one CPR.
In present study the most common mechanism of cardiac arrest in successful CPR was ventricular fibrillation and in unsuccessful CPR was asystol and bradycardia. 20. 8% of patients who experienced cardiac arrest had successful CPR and discharged from hospital.
20.8% of patients had successful CPR and hospital discharge which in comparison to the same studies is acceptable and indicate good quality of aforementioned CCU.
