What is ROC?

The Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium (ROC) was created to conduct clinical research in the areas of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and traumatic injury. ROC consists of 10 Regional Clinical Centers (RCCs) and a Data and Coordinating Center (DCC) that will provide the necessary infrastructure to conduct multiple collaborative trials to aid rapid translation of promising scientific and clinical advances to improve resuscitation outcomes. Trials may evaluate existing or new therapies (such as pharmacologic immune modulators) as well as clinical management strategies (such as new resuscitative fluids, novel hemorrhage control strategies, the use of cerebral protection and neurologic preservation, metabolically directed therapies, and alternative methods of delivering CPR or defibrillation).
