Society for Academic Emergency Medicine. Annual Meeting. Toronto ON (CAN), 1992/05.
To develop and validate a new time interval model for evaluating operational and patient care issues in emergency medical service (EMS) systems.
Design/setting/type of participant
Prospective analysis of 300 EMS responses among 20 advanced life support agencies throughout an entire state by direct, in-field observation.
Mean times (minutes) were response, 6.8; patient access, 1.0; initial assessment, 3.3; scene treatment, 4.4; patient removal, 5.5; transport, 11.7; delivery, 3.5; and recovery, 22.9. The largest component of the on-scene interval was patient removal.
