    Article - En anglais


    The mortality rate from heroin overdose in Italy between 1977 and 1987 increased significantly.

    However, in the same period, a significant increase was not observed in Tuscany, an administrative region in Italy.

    This study was performed to determine if the prehospital emergency medical system of Florence, the capital of Tuscany (the only one operating in Italy during the study period), affected this lower mortality rate.


    Retrospective study.


    The Florence system consists of 17 mobile ICUs, each of which is staffed by a physician and three paramedics.
