Background. Transport of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients expeditiously to appropriately equipped hospitals is of paramount importance. Objective. We sought to test the correlation of the centroids of geographic units with the actual transport distance for OHCA patients in order to...
Introduction. Prior to graduation, paramedic students must be assessed for terminal competency and preparedness for national credentialing examinations. Although the procedures for determining competency vary, many academic programs use a practical and/or oral examination, often scored using...
Background. Emergency medical services (EMS) traditionally administer naloxone using a needle. Needleless naloxone may be easier when intravenous (IV) access is difficult and may decrease occupational blood-borne exposure in this high-risk population. Several studies have examined intranasal...
Background. Multiple studies have demonstrated varying rates of successful endotracheal intubation (ETI). Until the application of video laryngoscopy, little information regarding prehospital intubation could be analyzed objectively by individuals other than the provider performing the ETI....
The rate of premature infant mortality has decreased over the last several decades, with an accompanying decrease in the gestational age of premature infants who survive to hospital discharge. Emergency medical services (EMS) providers are sometimes called to provide prehospital care for infants...
Introduction. The prognostic value of emergency echocardiography (EE) in the management of cardiac arrest patients has previously been studied in an in-hospital setting. These studies mainly included patients who underwent cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) by emergency medicine technicians at...
Objectives. The main objective of this study was to establish the spatial variation in ambulance response times for out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCAs) in the city-state of Singapore. The secondary objective involved studying the relationships between various covariates, such as traffic...
Background. The utility of prehospital intubation is controversial, as uncontrolled studies in trauma patients suggest adverse outcomes with prehospital intubation, perhaps secondary to inappropriate ventilation once intubation is accomplished. Objectives. The objectives were 1) to establish,...
Objectives. To examine prehospital emergency medical services (EMS) scope of practice for acute cardiovascular events and characteristics that may affect scope of practice; and to describe variations in EMS scope of practice for these events and the characteristics associated with that...
Objective. To determine the epidemiology and survival of pediatric out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) secondary to trauma. Methods. The CanAm Pediatric Cardiac Arrest Study Group is a collaboration of researchers in the United States and Canada sharing a common goal to improve survival...
