DANARREST (Registration of cardiac arrest in hospital) is a clinical quality database that registers cases of cardiac arrest in Danish hospitals. All cases of cardiac arrest in hospital with an in-hospital cardiac arrest team are registered and the team is responsible for registration. The database also includes information about procedures carried out in resuscitation, reason(s) for cardiac arrest, department and a range of demographic variables.

Cardiac arrest in hospital has a poor prognosis with high mortality and significant risk of complications amongst surviving patients. Establishing registration for cardiac arrest in hospital is critical for improving the quality of treatment and hence the potential for better survival.

Application requirements

The Regional Clinical Quality Databases

Data about clinical quality are collected with the purpose of monitoring and raising the quality of patient treatment in the Danish health-care system. These data can, as well as all other public registers, be made accessible for research projects based on systematic protocols and approved according to the relevant legislations.

Applying for access to data from a regional clinical database requires a list of demands to be obtained. A project description should be attached containing a description of the project explaining the rationale, purpose, methods, budget, publication plan etc.

Furthermore, The Danish Data Protection Agency must approve the project.

Application process

  • Apply via research access (Danish: forskeradgang), an online application system
  • Submit the protocol to The Danish Clinical Registries (RKKP)
  • RKKP registers the application
  • The application is forwarded to the relevant clinical database
  • Potential dialog about adjustment to the protocol
  • Approval and extradition of data (expected 6 months after application)



The Regional clinical quality databases subject to rules for treatment of personal data, that should secure high quality of patient treatment in Denmark.
