Insurance type and the transportation to emergency departments of patients with acute cardiac ischemia: the ACI-TIPI Trial Insurance Study. (1/370)

The relationship of insurance type to treatment-seeking behavior (ie, the transportation to emergency departments of patients with symptoms suggestive of acute cardiac ischemia) was evaluated. The focus was on comparing patients belonging to a health maintenance organization (HMO) with patients who had indemnity insurance. Data were collected prospectively on 10,783 patients presenting to emergency departments of 10 adult care hospitals in the Eastern and Midwestern United States between April and December 1993 as part of a clinical trial. A total of 6,604 patients presented within 24 hours of symptom onset. Although these patients as a group had a wide range of demographic and clinical characteristics, persons belonging to an HMO and those with indemnity insurance were very similar. The main outcome measures were whether the patient was transported by ambulance and the duration of time from symptom onset to emergency department arrival. A hospital-matched sample of HMO-insured and indemnity-insured patients allowed multivariable regression: HMO membership was not associated with a different rate of ambulance use (odds ratio = 1.0; 95% confidence interval = 0.73, 1.35) or duration of time from symptom onset to emergency department presentation (6 minutes less, P = 0.8). HMO participation was not related to treatment-seeking behavior, as reflected by ambulance use and duration of time from symptom onset to emergency department arrival. However, studies of more constrained managed care organizations and of broader ranges of patients are needed.  (+info)

Older people's use of ambulance services: a population based analysis. (2/370)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the use of emergency and non-urgent ambulance transport services by people aged 65 years and over. SETTING: The study was undertaken in Queensland where the Queensland Ambulance Services (QAS) is the sole provider of emergency pre-hospital and non-urgent ambulance services for the entire state. METHODS: The age and sex of 351,000 emergency and non-urgent cases treated and transported by the QAS from July 1995 to June 1996 were analysed. RESULTS: People aged 65 years and over who comprise 12% of the population utilise approximately one third of the emergency and two thirds of the non-urgent ambulance resources provided in Queensland. While the absolute number of occasions of service for females for emergency services is higher than for males, when the data are stratified for age and sex, males have higher rates of emergency ambulance service utilisation than females across every age group, and particularly in older age groups. Gender differences are also found for non-urgent ambulance usage. The absolute number of occasions of service for older females aged 65 and over using non-urgent ambulance transport is high, but utilisation patterns on stratified data reveal similar gender usage patterns across most age groupings, except at the older age groupings where male usage greatly exceeds female usage. CONCLUSIONS: As the aged are disproportionately high users of ambulance services, it will become increasingly important for ambulance services to plan for the projected increase in the aged population. Emergency pre-hospital care is one of the few health services along the continuum of care where male usage patterns are higher than those of females. More information needs to be obtained on the age and presenting characteristics of those people who are multiple users of the ambulance service. Such information will assist service planners.  (+info)

Analysis of the treatment of acute myocardial infarction using ambulance records in Japanese cities. (3/370)

By means of ambulance records, the current state of medical services for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) was investigated in Chiba City and Ichihara City, Japan. From all patients transported by ambulance personnel in 1992 (n=31,191), 388 patients who were admitted within 2 weeks after the onset were studied. Types of admitting institution, diagnoses, medical treatments and prognoses were investigated. According to medical records, 168 patients fulfilled the criteria of definite AMI and were admitted alive. Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) and recanalization (PTCR) were performed on 54 and 6 patients, respectively. The hospital case-fatality rates were lower in the patients who underwent emergency PTCA or PTCR than in the others. Emergency PTCA or PTCR, and admission to coronary care units (CCU) or institutions equipped with coronary angiography, decreased the fatality risk, even after considering age, sex, and disease severity. These results show the importance of the selection of institutions for AMI patients. Because 40% of definite AMI patients were sent to institutions without CCU, it is essential that enough CCU are available through an improvement in cooperation between the various types of institutions, and in the proper transfer of AMI patients to CCU  (+info)

Resuscitation from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: is survival dependent on who is available at the scene? (4/370)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is influenced by the on-scene availability of different grades of ambulance personnel and other health professionals. DESIGN: Population based, retrospective, observational study. SETTING: County of Nottinghamshire with a population of one million. SUBJECTS: All 2094 patients who had resuscitation attempted by Nottinghamshire Ambulance Service crew from 1991 to 1994; study of 1547 patients whose arrest were of cardiac aetiology. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Survival to hospital admission and survival to hospital discharge. RESULTS: Overall survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest remains poor: 221 patients (14.3%) survived to reach hospital alive and only 94 (6.1%) survived to be discharged from hospital. Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that the chances of those resuscitated by technician crew reaching hospital alive were poor but were greater when paramedic crew were either called to assist technicians or dealt with the arrest themselves (odds ratio 6.9 (95% confidence interval 3.92 to 26.61)). Compared to technician crew, survival to hospital discharge was only significantly improved with paramedic crew (3.55 (1.62 to 7.79)) and further improved when paramedics were assisted by either a health professional (9.91 (3.12 to 26.61)) or a medical practitioner (20.88 (6.72 to 64.94)). CONCLUSIONS: Survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest remains poor despite attendance at the scene of the arrest by ambulance crew and other health professionals. Patients resuscitated by a paramedic from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest caused by cardiac disease were more likely to survive to hospital discharge than when resuscitation was provided by an ambulance technician. Resuscitation by a paramedic assisted by a medical practitioner offers a patient the best chances of surviving the event.  (+info)

Influence of ambulance crew's length of experience on the outcome of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. (5/370)

AIMS: To investigate whether an ambulance crew's length of experience affected the outcome of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. METHODS AND RESULTS: This was a population-based, retrospective observational study of attempted resuscitations in 1547 consecutive arrests of cardiac aetiology by Nottinghamshire Emergency Ambulance Service crew. One thousand and seventy-one patients were managed by either a paramedic or a technician crew without assistance from other trained individuals at the scene of arrest. Overall, the chances of a patient surviving to be discharged from hospital alive did not appear to be affected by the paramedic's length of experience (among survivors, 18 months experience vs non-survivors 16 months experience, P = 0.347) but there appears to be a trend in the effect of a technician's length of experience on survival (among survivors, 60 months experience vs non-survivors 28 months experience, P = 0.075). However, when a technician had 4 years of experience or more and a paramedic 1 year's experience, survival rates did improve. Logistic regression analysis, adjusted for factors known to influence outcome, revealed that chances of survival increased once technicians had over 4 years of experience after qualification (odds ratio 2.71, 95% CI 1.17 to 6.32, P = 0.02) and paramedics after just 1 year of experience (odds ratio 2.68, 95% CI 1.05 to 6.82, P = 0.04). CONCLUSIONS: Survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest varies with the type of ambulance crew and length of experience after qualification. Experience in the field seems important as paramedics achieve better survival rates after just 1 year's experience, while technicians need to have more than 4 years' experience to improve survival.  (+info)

Major incidents: training for on site medical personnel. (6/370)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the present levels of training for the medical incident officer (MIO) and the mobile medical team leader (MMTL) throughout the UK. METHOD: Postal questionnaire to consultants in charge of accident and emergency (A&E) departments seeing more than 30,000 patients a year. Information regarding MIO staffing and training and MMTL training and provision requested. RESULTS: A&E provides the majority of both MIOs and MMTLs in the event of a major incident. Virtually all MIOs are consultants or general practitioners. However, 63% of MMTLs are from hospital training grade staff. One third of hospitals required their designated MIO to have undertaken a Major Incident Medical Management and Support course and a quarter had no training requirement at all. Two thirds of MMTLs were expected to have completed an Advanced Trauma Life Support course, but in 21% there was no minimum training requirement. Training exercises are infrequent, and hence the exposure of any one individual to exercises will be minimal. CONCLUSION: There has been some improvement in major incident training and planning since 1992, but much remains to be done to improve the national situation to an acceptable standard.  (+info)

Study of early warning of accident and emergency departments by ambulance services. (7/370)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the warning time given to accident and emergency (A&E) departments by the ambulance service before arrival of a critically ill or injured patient. To determine if this could be increased by ambulance personnel alerting within five minutes of arrival at scene. METHODS: Use of computerised ambulance control room data to find key times in process of attending a critically ill or injured patient. Modelling was undertaken with a scenario of the first responder alerting the A&E department five minutes after arrival on scene. RESULTS: The average alert warning time was 7 min (range 1-15 min). Mean time on scene was 22 min (range 4-59 min). In trauma patients alone, the average alert time was 7 min, range 2-15 min, with an average on scene time of 23 min, range 4-53 min. There was a potential earlier alert time averaging 25 min (SD 18.6, range 2-59 min) if the alert call was made five minutes after arrival on scene. CONCLUSIONS: A&E departments could be alerted much earlier by the ambulance service. This would allow staff to be assembled and preparations to be made. Disadvantages may be an increased "alert rate" and wastage of staff time while waiting the ambulance arrival.  (+info)

Ambulance notes of a Bellevue Hospital intern: May 1938. (8/370)

In 1938, as a New York University/Bellevue Hospital intern, I recorded notes on the 384 cases I saw during my 1-month ambulance duty. Although I intended to use them to follow up the clinical course of patients I admitted to Bellevue, the long hours and pressure of work made this ambitious goal unachievable. Sixty years later, after retirement from academic medicine and medical practice at New York University School of Medicine, I found the long-lost notes among my papers. They are of historic interest since they provide insight into aspects of primary and emergency medicine of the era when the therapeutic efficacy of the sulfanilamide class of agents was under investigation, a unique view of the life of an intern just before interns were replaced on ambulances by technicians, and a glimpse of the surprising character of several neighborhoods of pre-World War II Manhattan. The notes also provide the basis for a current analysis of case incidence and treatment by disease category. A description of the confluence of social, economic, and political forces that led to the establishment of the Bellevue Hospital Ambulance Service, the first such urban service in the world, is included.  (+info)

Andy Irving, Research Associate at the University of Sheffield and lead for patient and public involvement within the PhOEBE project, said: "Nowadays people call 999 for many different reasons and health problems.. "In recognition of this, ambulances in England have been changing the way they work. However, many people still hold a fairly traditional view of the ambulance service simply transporting patients to hospital.". The PhOEBE programmes patient and public advisors felt important messages from the project around the changing nature of ambulance services and the problems with simple time targets were unlikely to reach beyond a limited academic and NHS professional audience. Together, they created an animation to provide a clear explanation about the pioneering project and an overview of the range of responses ambulance services now offer, so they can provide the most appropriate care for a wide range of problems. "Essentially everyone is a potential recipient of ambulance service care and ...
OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the setting of priorities and patients need for the ambulance service. METHODS: A prospective, consecutive study was conducted during a 6-week period. The ambulance staff completed a questionnaire assessing each patients need for prehospital care. In addition to the questionnaire, data were extracted from the ambulance medical records for each case. RESULTS: The study included 1977 ambulance assignments. The results show that there is a substantial safety margin in the priority assessments made by the emergency medical dispatch operators, where the ambulance staff support the safety margin for initial priorities, despite the lack of at-the-scene confirmation. At-the-scene assessments indicated that 10% of all patients had potentially life-threatening conditions or no signs of life, but the advanced life support units were not systematically involved in these serious cases. The results even showed that one-third of the patients for whom an ambulance was assigned did not ...
St Johns latest Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA) report confirms the emergency ambulance service has maintained a strong 16% survival rate for patients who are treated for cardiac arrest.. Numbers to survive a cardiac arrest are universally low. Of the approximately 40 people treated for cardiac arrest by St John each week, 12 are successfully resuscitated and transported to hospital and only six will later survive to be discharged. The new OHCA data confirms St Johns clinical processes continue to be of a high standard and compare favourably with similar ambulance services internationally. St John measures its performance against its previous data and other ambulance services including Wellington Free Ambulance Service which has a 14% survival rate, Ambulance Victoria in Australia with 10%, and London Ambulance Service in the United Kingdom, which has a 9% survival rate.. "This is positive for New Zealanders and reflects highly on the skills of our ambulance officers," says St John ...

Background Concern over the adverse effects of heat on human health has led to numerous studies assessing the relationship between heat and mortality. Few studies have quantified the impact of heat on morbidity, including ambulance response calls. This study describes the association between temperature and ambulance response calls for heat-related illness (HRI) in Toronto, Ontario, Canada during the summer of 2005. ...
OBJECTIVE. To determine whether ambulance crew triage trauma patients appropriately. DESIGN. A retrospective descriptive study. SETTINGS. Cornwall County Ambulance Service. VARIABLES STUDIED. On-scene times, injury severity, establishment of intravenous infusion and time from scene to A&E department. SUBJECTS. Patients with compound fracture of the lower limb taken to Truro Accident and Emergency department. OUTCOME MEASURES. Ambulance service on-scene times and mission times. RESULTS. Ambulance crew do not appear to be triaging patients appropriately. Excessive time is being spent on pre-hospital stabilization. Delivery of patients to a casualty department is delayed. CONCLUSION. At present the activities of paramedics are poorly supervised, and pre-hospital management by paramedics may be jeopardizing patient care.. ...
The town also is the base for the Upper Kennebec Valley Ambulance Service, which attends to people in six towns and 11 unorganized townships in northern Somerset County. As in many rural areas in Maine, services such as the ambulance are shared among communities.. Trying to figure out how to pay for shared services can be a challenge in rural communities.. While facing rising costs, the ambulance service here is considering changing the way it is paid in the communities it serves. Yet because the areas population is so small and spread out, the cost of services is higher than in other local districts. In those areas, services can be shared at lower costs to taxpayers or provided by hospitals or private companies.. HIGH COST IN A RURAL AREA. Communities that use Upper Kennebec Valley Ambulance pay based on their population, with residents in Bingham paying about half the money collected. Some think the way costs are shared is unfair because Bingham has a nursing home, which accounts for many of ...
Figures uncovered last week by the Liberal Democrats have shown that ambulance services are at breaking point due to chronic underfunding, with a 20% increase in serious incidents involving ambulance crews over the last two years.. Between April 2015 and March 2016, 448 serious incidents were reported including severe delays and poor patient care. 232 were complaints about delays answering emergency calls and delivering patients to hospital, 62 were about sub-optimal care of patients and 28 concerned delays in diagnosis of a patient or failure to act on test results.. Liberal Democrat Health Spokesperson Norman Lamb said:. "The alarming rise in serious incidents adds to the growing evidence that ambulance services are at breaking-point due to chronic underfunding.. "This is a staggering record for a government which bangs on about patient safety, but still they do nothing to address the situation.. Tom Brake added: "These national figures are worrying. Behind each of these figures is a person ...

The project was as a result of collaboration between the University of Hertfordshire, Andy Newton, Clinical Director and Consultant Paramedic of South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Trust and former Paramedic Professional Lead at UH, and Professor David Barker, Consultant Medical Adviser, Smiths Medical International.. The team identified that ambulance staff are not sufficiently trained and encouraged to use an automatic ventilator. They went on to develop training materials for a ventilation course which could be adopted within the University courses such as the Paramedic BSc or Post-Graduate Critical Care Paramedic programmes.. The course content includes theory, demonstrations and practice time with different types of automatic ventilators on simulation mannequins. The aim is to train ambulance crews to apply automatic ventilators safely and effectively, thereby increasing patient safety and the quality of care provided and reducing possible errors.. "The feedback we received about this ...
On Friday 26 February the UK national newspaper The Independent covered the just-released report on the London Ambulance Service debacle very fully - it was the main story on the front page (entitled "Report Prompts Departure of Ambulance Boss"), with three more stories taking up a significant fraction of page 3. These are entitled "Managers `created an atmosphere of mistrust", "[Secretary of State for Health] Bottomley condemns `catalogue of errors", and "Father grieved for asthmatic son who died in his arms". The first of these three has the most detail, and is quoted below in its entirety. Brian Randell ========== The London Ambulance Service Crisis MANAGERS "CREATED AN ATMOSPHERE" OF MISTRUST, By Susan Watts, Technology Correspondent, The Independent, 26 February 1993 It would be hard to paint a more damning picture of failed management than that which emerged from the inquiry into the London Ambulance Service yesterday. The report said that the LAS management "created an atmosphere of ...

Dear Scottish Ambulance Service,. Please could you provide a description of how ambulance crews book on and off the ACC system at the start and end of their shifts. For example, do they press a specific button on their radio or do they call in to a control room by radio or by phone?. Please describe how BASICS responders mark their availability. Do they use a button on their radio/smartphone/vehicle locator system unit or do they call in to a control room by radio or telephone?. In remote locations many doctors (or nurse responders) will be available for long periods (several days at a time). Do they need to re-book onto the system each day or do they stay booked on until they book off even if that is several days later.. Yours faithfully,. Dr Robert S. Coull. ...
More than 40 percent of people aged 65 years or older experience one or more falls each year, often resulting in injuries [1, 2]. Consequences of falls include a reduction in physical activity and functional decline which in turn can lead to a poorer quality of life and social isolation. All these factors increase the risk of dependency and institutionalisation [3-5].. Many older people do not seek medical attention after a fall [6] but a significant and increasing number require paramedic attendance as a consequence of a fall. In the period July 2008 - June 2009, the Ambulance Service of New South Wales (ASNSW), Australia attended to 42,331 fallers aged 65 years and older which constitutes approximately 5.1% of all emergency ambulance responses [7]. This proportion is similar to the 7.5% reported in an urban Emergency Medical Service system in the USA [8]. The demand for emergency services to assist older fallers is likely to increase with population ageing.. In most countries, the current ...

This recommendation built upon the Francis reports recommendation that all patients discharged from NHS Care have their discharge overseen by a registered healthcare professional..

Please note that I am interested in unique numbers of patients, and not necessarily the number of 999 calls received. Please could I ask you to include only patients categorized as an emergency (for example those who have called 999/112), and not urgent cases or routine transfers (for example GP Admissions).. 2) How many of those emergency patients were seen face-to-face by a registered paramedic ...

By JEFF SCHULTZ Porter County will spend $300,000 less per year on ambulance service after the Board of Commissioners agreed 3-0 Tuesday to amend the contract it has with Porter Regional Hospital. The Commissioners in November 2014 extended the contract for five years at a cost of $750,000 annually. Commissioner President Jeff Good, R-Center, said on Tuesday that Hospital officials reached out a few months ago to collaborate further on the service and ultimately decided to reduce the amount to $450,000 per year and even more costs savings are possible in a new contract that will be coming in the next six to twelve months.. There has been a lot of discussions and a lot of information shared with us on how our whole ambulance and dispatching works, Good said. With knowing the direction we are heading in, some of the things will be changing in the future, nothing significant, but basically between the (Commissioners) and Porter Hospital I think it was a good opportunity to relook at where we stand ...

ANAHEIM - Physicians and staffers at Kaiser Permanente in Anaheim said goodbye to a family member Wednesday - their old hospital.. More than 60 patients were taken by ambulance to the new 262-bed, $425 million Anaheim Medical Center on La Palma Avenue as the old Lakeview Avenue facility closed after 33 years as a Kaiser hospital.. "The building grew up, and we grew with it," said Christy Hartman, the lead respiratory therapist, with the hospital during its entire Kaiser run.. In the old hospitals parking lot, about 10 ambulances lined up outside the emergency room at 7 a.m. to wait for patients to be wheeled out on gurneys, flanked by nurses and emergency technicians.. A tiny, wrinkled baby wrapped in blankets and sealed in a neonatal intensive-care chamber was carted out and into an ambulance.. Dr. Joshua Cain, an anesthesiologist overseeing the move, said babies in the intensive-care unit, women in labor and emergency-room patients were transported first to avoid keeping the old hospital open ...

Now a recent study in the Annals of Emergency Medicine casts further doubt to the concept of the golden hour for patients with severe injury. The authors studied more than 3,000 trauma patients-those with low blood pressures from bleeding, head injuries, and difficulty breathing-and looked at various time intervals after a 9-1-1 call. The times were compared with outcomes for the patients in the hospital. The result: shorter intervals did not appear to improve survival. These results are fascinating, in part because the principal question-how important is speed in the care of trauma patients before they get to the hospital?-has never been so elegantly explored. Previous efforts to measure the effect of ambulance time on survival have been plagued by the fundamental problem that medics may behave differently, like driving faster or spending more time working on patients, depending on the severity of the condition, making it impossible to tease out the effect of time on survival. While some of ...
Background: There are three different types of ambulance systems, all of which can manage the same secondary intensive care patient transport mission: road ambulance, rotor-wing ambulance, and fixed-wing ambulance. We hypothesized that costs for specific transport distances would differ between systems. We aimed to analyze distances and observed times for ambulance intensive care secondary transport missions together with system costs to assess this. Methods: We prospectively collected data for consecutive urgent intensive care transports into the regional tertiary care hospital in the northern region of Sweden. Distances and transport times were gathered, and a cost model was generated based on these together with fixed and operating costs from the three different ambulance systems. Distance-cost and time-cost estimations were then generated for each transport system. Results: Road ambulance cost relatively less for shorter distances (within 250 kilometers/155 miles) but were relatively time ...

The response time of emergency services can reach 10 or 15 minutes in many cities with heavy traffic, but thats not good enough when someone is suffering a heart attack. A student at the Netherlands Delft University of Technology has unveiled a possible solution. The ambulance drone designed by Alec Momont can fly at 60 miles per hour (100 kph) to deliver a defibrillator to a patient in mere minutes.. The ambulance drone is a hexacopter painted in emergency services yellow. It can be dispatched to a location within 4.6 square miles (12 square kilometers) in about a minute. Upon landing, anyone able to help the victim will be talked through using the attached defibrillator by an operator. The operator will also have access to a live camera feed from the drone to make sure everything is done correctly. Luckily, defibrillators are fairly easy to use.. When someone suffers a heart attack, time is of the essence. If normal cardiac rhythm can be reestablished quickly, survival and complication rates ...

Using data from 30 years of research evidence on ambulance services around the world, Dr Matthew Booker and colleagues from Bristols Centre for Academic Primary Care carried out a systematic literature review to explore why patients with primary care sensitive problems seek help from ambulance services.. They found that, while there is evidence that the total number of calls to emergency services is increasing, they could not clearly conclude whether there is an increase in inappropriate calls because these calls had not been measured and recorded in a consistent way.. Dr Booker said: "When people call the emergency services they are usually genuinely worried. It can be difficult for the public to know exactly how urgently their medical problem needs attention.. "In many research studies, calls are labelled as inappropriate only after a clinician has made an assessment. For example, someone calling emergency services with symptoms of an infection may be very anxious and in distress when ...
2 Robinson and Mitchell (1993)12-conducted an evaluation of the impact of debriefings carried out by an Australian team. A total of 288 welfare and health personnel had been debriefed by the team, and of these 60% responded. On average, the debrief was reported as valuable for oneself and others. However, the questionnaire was crudely designed with no negative values in the scale. This paper is coauthored by one of the original proponents of CISD that may also be a source of bias.. 3 Jenkins (1996)15-evaluated debriefing conducted among emergency workers involved in a mass shooting. Data were collected 8-10 days and 29-31 days after incident. At 8-10 days, a response rate of 87% was achieved. About half of the sample attended CISD, and the strongest recovery effects appeared to be in this group. Those who had less social support available to them were more likely to state that CISD helped them to cope. However, as CISD attendance was a matter of personal choice rather than random allocation, ...
In 2014, one in four patients transported by AMR waited on an ambulance gurney for more than 30 minutes before a hospital took over care, costing AMR more than 14,000 hours, county officials said. AMR is bound by its county contract to meet response time goals or it can be fined.. AMR spokesman Jason Sorrick said his company thinks offload delays are a significant issue.. WHERES THE WAIT? Of the hospitals surveyed by the county, those in the desert - Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs; Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage and John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital in Indio - had the fewest delays between January and April of this year.. Riverside County Regional Medical Center in Moreno Valley had one of the better compliance rates, meeting the 30-minute standard 73 percent of the time. Keven Porter, nurse manager for the county-run hospitals ER, said the department is focused on saving space for patients arriving by ambulance.. "To create treatment space we focus on promptly ...
Although musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and other health complaints are an occupational problem for ambulance personnel, there is a lack of knowledge regarding work-related factors associated with MSDs and other health complaints. The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate the relationships between occupational demands, individual characteristics and health-related outcomes among ambulance personnel.. A random sample of 234 female and 953 male ambulance personnel participated in a national questionnaire survey on work-related factors, and musculoskeletal and other health complaints. Physical demands was associated with activity limitation due to neck-shoulder and low-back complaints among the female personnel. Among the male personnel, physical demands was associated with low-back complaints and activity limitation due to low-back complaints. Psychological demands was significantly associated with neck-shoulder complaints, sleeping problems, headache and stomach symptoms among both ...

UPn 05/12/93 Police arrest three for hauling marijuana with patient in ambulance SAN ANTONIO, Texas (UPI) -- The dog knew something was amiss. Police said the driver of an ambulance from Laredo told officers Wednesday afternoon he was carrying a female patient to Santa Rosa Hospital in Antonio. On the seat next to him was a woman dressed as a nurse. Officers at a Border Patrol checkpoint waved the ambulance through -- but a drug-sniffing dog alerted them that something was wrong. After the vehicle, owned by Medic Ambulance Service of Laredo, pulled up to the hospital -- and after doctors determined there was nothing wrong with the "patient," -- police alerted by the Border Patrol uncovered 200 pounds of marijuana hidden in compartments that normally carry oxygen and other emergency equipment, officials said. The ambulances driver, "nurse" and "patient" were arrested and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, police said. But police said the driver did not use the ...

The call on our screen was from Greater Manchester Ambulance Service, and there was a lot of detail crammed into a short space.. "30yof ? mental breakdown. Has just had daughter taken away from her. ? suicidal. Sister in Manchester concerned for her safety. Sent text saying goodbye. Patients name Anna, sisters name Jenny.". A lot of the time, we get calls like this, turn up, find the patient drowning their sorrows but otherwise okay and make a reassuring call to the concerned relative. Other times, we find the house locked, with no answer at the door, call the police round with their enforcers to break it down… just at the point the patient returns from shopping. Such patients are rarely impressed.. On this occasion, however, the ambulance crew found the door wide open, and the flat empty. The ambulance crew called me on the radio to ask what they should do next. I called Jenny, the sister, to explain what wed found.. "Shes gone somewhere to kill herself!" sobbed Jenny. "Do you ...
it was more of a design flaw than anything. the clinic isnt really set up for ambulance care - they had to park across the street and go thru the crowd on the sidewalk - because the parking lot is A) tiny and B) restricted. as in, you have to have an appointment, go thru a guard area [and the entrance was too small for the ambulance to go thru - too short. theyve changed it, since, done a re-model and have an area set aside for ambulances, now - i was one of the first that it happened to, being mobbed when coming by ambulance - but i was also one of the LAST.] they get maybe 3 or 4 people in an ambulance a YEAR, but those people are fucking CRAZY.

The key untestable assumptions for valid IV analyses are that the instrument affects the dependent variable only through the variable being instrumented for and is uncorrelated with omitted predictors of the outcome (1, 2). These assumptions are probably satisfied in our study. Although the variation across counties in the proportion of ALS ambulances is not randomized, it does appear to be idiosyncratic, driven in part by local political decisions. Thus, our IV analysis approximates a randomized trial with multiple groups that vary the proportion of ALS ambulances. One must assume that neither the severity (within diagnosis) of emergent conditions across counties (within states) leading to ambulance transport nor the quality of hospital care is associated with ALS penetration. The former assumption is plausible but untestable for 4 of the diagnoses; we control for severity in the case of trauma. The latter assumption is testable and is not rejected ...

It has been my view that this cant be the relevant definition for the Road Rules because, on that basis, an ambulance responding to a heart attack victim is not responding to an emergency as they there is not a significant and co-ordinated response. That is of course arguable, even one intensive care ambulance is providing a significant response - the crew are well trained and there is much behind them to allow them to provide the response, and they are coordinated by the service that is managing competing demands, but even so it does seem a bit of a stretch to fit a single ambulance response into that definition but still we expect them to respond with lights and sirens.. Murray v McMurchy [1949] 2 DLR 442 was a Canadian case, dealing with a surgeon who was performing a caesarean section. During the procedure he observed that the patient had a tumour and further pregnancies would be life threating. He therefore permanently sterilised her. He informed her of what he had found, and done, ...

Background: Threats and violence in emergency care is a serious problem that is increasing both in Sweden and in the rest of the world. The ambulance service is an area of health care where the prevalence of threats and violence are most prominent. Ambulance staff workplace varies and therefore it can be a challenge to create a safe work environment. Purpose: The aim was that from a prehospital perspective describe what measures can be taken to prevent threats and violence in emergency care. Method: A literature review with systematic search and descriptive design was used. The search resulted in 14 articles from three databases. In the analysis, the authors made use of qualitative content analysis. Results: The result describes the importance of being able to identify risks, to use preventive strategies and to optimize the conditions in order to prevent threats and violence. Identifying the risks involved in order to identify risk behaviours, risk patients, vulnerable groups of staff, critical ...
A week ago, you may well have noticed some rather small scale rioting going on Londons financial districts. Had you been anywhere near the London Ambulance Control room, you might have also noticed some small scale panicking coming from the East Central Allocator (me) too. The area of the protests was slap bang in the middle of the area I cover, and if it all kicked off, it was going to be a very busy day.. When a major incident occurs, we open up another, smaller, control room (known as ICR - Incident Control Room) next to the main control room. It has its own allocators, radio operators, etc. Any call related to the incident is transferred out there. Because we had prior knowledge that the G20 protests were happening, the room was already set up and ready to go, with the computer system automatically transferring any calls within the relevant areas to ICR. Control staff and ambulance crews were in on overtime to cover it. The ambulances had special callsigns starting with a V to distinguish ...

Emily was playing with her playmobil this morning, the rescue helicopter and hospital set, what a fiasco though! First the helicopter landed on the casualty, then the ambulance turned up with another patient on board who just got thrown out and then Ambulance had no crew so had to go back to hospital to fetch them and no one bothered to look at the casualty! Then the hospital ran out of beds and people were having to lie on the floor!! They only had one bed and a baby incubator that doubled up as an xray machine. A baby got sent home and left in an empty house, the ambulance knocked someone over! But then people got taken by ambulance for check ups! The next thing the hospital was closed and a vets opened up and treated a hedgehog that had been knocked down and hurt its nose, it had to stay in for 3 months because it had a temperature, I wont tell you where she took its temperature! Well they call it imaginative play, but it all seemed a bit realistic to me!! ...
The aim of the steering group is to improve survival from OHCA by strengthening the Chain of Survival across Ireland. National and international evidence and experience will be assessed for applicability in an Irish setting. A framework will be developed whereby members/members organisations can present ideas and proposals for improvement, for each link of the Chain of Survival. An important objective of the Group will be to ensure that the impact of the Strategy can be monitored through effective and accurate data recording and data reporting. The most important challenge for the Group will be to make sure that the recommendations of the Strategy are implemented. This is why the Strategy will include an implementation plan with planned activities, timelines and responsibilities. There are currently examples of excellent resuscitation practice across our nation. The group will review these practices with the view to national implementation, with the ultimate aim of improving OHCA survival ...
Published: 24 Aug 2011. The survival rate of patients brought to St Georges Hospital having suffered a cardiac arrest is in the top two in London, according to statistics published by London Ambulance Service in August.. The annual study examines survival rates across the capital and found that between August 2010 and July 2011 the survival rate of patients brought to St Georges Hospital was 15.4 per cent (16/104). This is the second year running that the hospital has been in the top two out of more than 30 hospitals included in the report.. Paula McLean, resuscitation service manager, said: "These statistics are encouraging and demonstrate that the service provided at St Georges is among the best anywhere. The figures represent patients who have suffered a cardiac arrest outside of hospital - at home or at work, for instance - so their hearts stopped beating prior to getting into hospital, which is very serious.. "The survival rate at St Georges is the result of complex teamwork between ...

Witness/es: Dr. Naim Sabna, director of Salfit Emergency Medical Hospital, Salfit residents including 12 year old boy who witnessed shooting of Moath. At approximately 2:30 p.m. on Friday, July 15 two Apache helicopters fired rockets and opened fire on three men in an olive grove east of the town of Salfit. Two men, Samer Abdulhadi Dawhqa and Mohammad Ahmed Marri, were killed instantly. The third man, Mohammad Yusef Ayash, was gravely injured with multiple injuries to the chest and head. He was taken to the Emergency Medical Hospital in Salfit, where he was given emergency treatment and sent by ambulance to the hospital in Ramallah. On the way to the hospital, the ambulance was stopped by Israeli soldiers. The soldiers took the keys to the ambulance and beat the doctor on his shoulder and foot with the butt of their gun. Mr. Ayash was taken away by an Israeli military ambulance. His location and condition are not known at the time of this writing.. At about 3 p.m. army jeeps entered the town ...
The first baby known to be born on a motorway hard-shoulder in the East of England sparked a major "incident" after her arrival on the M11 near Cambridge.. Mother Caroline Dethridge of Cottenham had just given birth to 7lb 4oz Rosie when traffic officers Rob Clarke and Karl Hensel leapt into action.. After alerting the Eastern Regional Control Centre, and ensuring the ambulance service knew their precise location, they set up emergency cones and arrows to protect the scene.. And when the ambulance arrived, they made sure paramedics could lift the family into the ambulance in safety.. Proud father Steven Dethridge said: "The Traffic Officers were brilliant. The baby came so quickly, she was already on the back seat by the time I pulled over.". Jane Kelly, duty operational manager said: "The M11 hard-shoulder is not the best maternity hospital, but we were all thrilled to hear the baby arrived safely. Our whole team came into the control room to find out the latest. It brightened up our ...
PARAMEDICS reported problems with a Dublin Fire Brigade ambulance days before it broke down on its way to hospital - leaving an ill child trapped on board for 40 minutes.
Last week, there was a news story about emergency vehicles for which queue modelling is relevant. In the United Kingdom, there are about 30 air ambulances, mostly helicopters, which provide rapid transport of patients from their point of need to a hospital. As my house is close to the hospital in Exeter, we frequently see one of the two air ambulances that fly in our county of Devon from our garden. I am not sufficiently familiar with the air ambulances from the neighbouring counties to be able to recognise them, but I know that there are times when "Our" ambulances will cross the border and vice versa, so the Dorset ambulance sometimes comes to Exeter, and - rarely - that from Cornwall flies here, though that generally only visits the west and the north of Devon. So, essentially, the emergency service in Devon might be modelled as a queue with two servers. Or, you could model the emergency service in Dorset, Devon and Cornwall as a queue with four servers. However, as soon as you allow the ...
Consultants and critical care practitioners will now fly on board all of Wales Air Ambulances HEMS aircraft, as the Welsh flying medics expand into North Wales..

Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is a common medical emergency with significant mortality and significant neurological morbidity. Helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) may be tasked to OHCA. We sought to assess the impact of tasking a HEMS service to OHCA and characterise the nature of these calls. Retrospective case review of all HEMS calls to Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance, United Kingdom, over a 1-year period (1/9/2010-1/9/2011). All missions to cases of suspected OHCA, of presumed medical origin, were reviewed systematically. HEMS was activated 89 times to suspected OHCA. This represented 11% of the total HEMS missions. In 23 cases HEMS was stood-down en-route and in 2 cases the patient had not suffered an OHCA on arrival of HEMS. 25 patients achieved return-of-spontaneous circulation (ROSC), 13 (52%) prior to HEMS arrival. The HEMS team were never first on-scene. The median time from first collapse to HEMS arrival was 31 minutes (IQR 22-40). The median time from HEMS activation to
BACKGROUND: Mechanical chest compression devices have the potential to help maintain high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), but despite their increasing use, little evidence exists for their effectiveness. We aimed to study whether the introduction of LUCAS-2 mechanical CPR into front-line emergency response vehicles would improve survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. METHODS: The pre-hospital randomised assessment of a mechanical compression device in cardiac arrest (PARAMEDIC) trial was a pragmatic, cluster-randomised open-label trial including adults with non-traumatic, out-of-hospital cardiac arrest from four UK Ambulance Services (West Midlands, North East England, Wales, South Central). 91 urban and semi-urban ambulance stations were selected for participation. Clusters were ambulance service vehicles, which were randomly assigned (1:2) to LUCAS-2 or manual CPR. Patients received LUCAS-2 mechanical chest compression or manual chest compressions according to the first trial

Canadian trauma units have relatively little experience with major cardiac trauma (disruption of a cardiac chamber) so injury outcome may not be comparable to that reported from other countries. We compared our outcomes to those of other centers. Records of patients suffering major cardiac trauma over a nine-year period were reviewed. Factors predictive of outcome were analyzed. Twenty-seven patients (11 blunt and 16 penetrating) with major cardiac trauma were evaluated. Injury severity scores (ISS) were similar for blunt (49.6 ± 16.6) and penetrating (39.5 ± 21.6, p = 0.20) injuries. Five of 11 blunt trauma patients, and 9 of 16 penetrating trauma patients, had detectable vital signs on hospital arrival (p = 0.43). Ten patients underwent emergency department thoracotomy and 11 patients had cardiac repair in the operating theatre. Eleven patients survived and 16 died. Survivors had a lower ISS (33.7 ± 15.4) than non-survivors (50.4 ± 20.4; p = 0.03). Two of 11 blunt trauma patients and 9 of 16
