Emergency vehicle intervals versus collapse-to-CPR and collapse-to-defibrillation intervals : monitoring emergency medical services system performance in sudden cardiac arrest.
Society for Academic Emergency Medicine annual meeting. Toronto ON (CAN), 1992/05.
To compare emergency vehicle response intervals with collapse-to-intervention intervals to determine which of these system data better correlated with survival after prehospital sudden cardiac arrest.
A 22-month case series, collected prospectively, of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests.
Times of collapse, dispatch, scene arrival, CPR, and initial defibrillation were determined from dispatch records, recordings of arrest events, interviews with bystanders, and hospital records.
Southwestern city (population, 400,000; area, 390 km2) with a two-tiered basic life support-advanced life support emergency medical services system.
Emergency medical technician-firefighters without electrical defibrillation capability comprised the first response tier; firefighter-paramedics were the second tier.
