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)

South Central Ambulance Service NHS Trust was formed on 1 July 2006, following the merger of the Royal Berkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust, the Hampshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust, the Oxfordshire Ambulance NHS Trust, and part of the Two Shires Ambulance NHS Trust. The Trust achieved Foundation status on 1 March 2012, becoming known as South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS).[7]. In June 2011 it was named Englands top performing ambulance service, managing to respond to 77.5% of Cat A calls within the 8 minute target time, compared to the national average of 74.9%.[8] In October 2011 the BBC discovered that SCAS spent more on private ambulance services to cover 999 calls than any other service in the country.[9]. On 1 March 2012, the Trust became an NHS Foundation Trust.[10]. In October 2013 the Trust accidentally published on its website a document listing the age, sexuality and religion of all its 2,826 staff members.[11]. SCAS took over patient transport services in ...
We conducted a retrospective analysis of emergency ambulance despatches using a random sample of records held by Wiltshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust. From each year in nine years records (1988-96) we sampled 14 days, stratified by season, providing a dataset of 126 days of calls. Data were drawn from AS1 forms (completed by call takers) and from patient report forms (completed by paramedics). We used the system of call classification used by the trust to categorise data on the nature of incidents for analysis. We used indirect age standardisation based on the year with the most complete age data (1994) to account for demographic changes over the nine years (see methodological supplement on bmj.com). We calculated significance of trends with EpiInfo 6.03, using χ2 for trend.. Our sample contained details of 6100 calls relating to 5821 incidents. For 1225 (21%) of these, patient report forms rather than AS1 forms had been filled in. The table shows the numbers of vehicles despatched, ...
A 16-year-old boy received an award at the House of Commons on Friday (3 May) for his quick thinking in helping staff from the London Ambulance Service to resuscitate a man whose heart had stopped beating.. Aron Wimsett, from Bexleyheath, was honoured in the Ambulance Service Institute Public Spirited Awards 2007, hosted by Jacqui Lait MP, for his help when an 84-year-old man suffered a cardiac arrest outside his home.. Aron, who had received first-aid training as a cadet in the Air Training Corps, immediately assessed that the patients heart had stopped beating, asked his mother to dial 999 for an ambulance and began to give him cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR).. Paramedic Daniel Barnwall, who travelled to the patient in a fast-response car, said: I arrived to find Aron in full control of the situation. He was giving CPR to good effect and had even laid a blanket on the pavement to stop the patient from getting wet.. Daniel and an ambulance crew gave the patients heart four shocks with ...
The Minister of State for Primary Care Róisín Shorthall has failed to provide any answers on the ongoing impasse over permanent accommodation for Edenderry Ambulance Service. She was questioned by Offaly Fianna Fáil TD Barry Cowen, who raised a special Dáil debate on the matter this week (Thursday, 23 February). Deputy Cowen said: The temporary accommodation for the ambulance services in Edenderry is totally unacceptable and simply does not meet the standards required. It is crucial that permanent facilities are found immediately.. Edenderry Ambulance service has been seeking a permanent ambulance bay for a long number of years. After numerous representations the bay was received two years ago, by providing accommodation in what used to be the Matrons living quarters in Ofalia House. This consists of 1 room, a storage unit and one toilet to be used by male and female ambulance staff. These facilities are totally inadequate. Where an ambulance needs to be cleaned after a call, it must be ...
The British Columbia Ambulance Service (BCAS) is the sole ambulance service and provider of pre-hospital emergency care in the province of British Columbia. BCAS is managed by British Columbia Emergency Health Services (BCEHS) and falls under the jurisdiction of the Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA).

Keith Grey, 41, was working out in his gym when he suffered a cardiac arrest in October last year.. Luckily for primary schoolteacher Keith, the staff at the Central YMCA Club, Bloomsbury, had been trained by the London Ambulance Service in basic life support and how to use a defibrillator.. The gym has a public-access defibrillator which was partly funded by the British Heart Foundation.. Gym staff immediately recognised Keiths symptoms, called 999 for an ambulance and began basic life support.. They shocked his heart with the defibrillator and his heartbeat returned.. A motorcycle paramedic, ambulance crew and single responder arrived soon afterwards and provided advanced life support. Keith was taken to University College Hospital for further treatment.. Keith was diagnosed with an irregular heart rhythm and fitted with an internal cardioverter defibrillator. He was back at work in the New Year.. Central YMCA Club Director Barry Cronin said: With an average of 1,000 people using Central ...
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 ...
LEXINGTON, Ky. - The Lee County Fiscal Court (Lee County) and the former director of its ambulance service, Joseph Broadwell, have agreed to resolve civil allegations that Lee County Ambulance violated the False Claims Act, a federal law that prohibits the submission of false or fraudulent claims, agreeing to pay $253,930 to the federal government.. The agreement resolves a civil lawsuit that was filed by the United States against Lee County and Broadwell, on September 14, 2018. In the lawsuit, the United States alleged that the ambulance service, at Mr. Broadwells direction, submitted over one thousand false claims to Medicare, seeking payment for unnecessary non-emergency ambulance transports, from January 2013 to June 2016. Medicare pays for non-emergency ambulance transports only if the patients condition is such that taking other forms of transportation would endanger the patients health. The United States alleged that Lee County and Broadwell knowingly disregarded the Medicare rules ...
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 ...

PhD student Caroline Jagtenberg of CWI has executed research focused on reducing response time of ambulances. In her thesis Efficiency and Fairness in Ambulance Planning she presents new statistical models and methods, verified by realistic case studies for a Dutch ambulance provider. In emergency situations where every second counts, the timely presence of an ambulance can be a matter of life or death. This research to improve the logistics of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) can contribute to improving the response times of ambulances.
Jockey Leonel Camacho Flores was waiting to enter the starting gate for Turf Paradises final race on March 26 when the filly he was riding suddenly flipped over on top of him. According to azcentral.com, the rider suffered multiple fractures to his pelvis in the accident and underwent surgery; he may not be able to ride for as long as a year.. Paramedics attended Flores quickly, but then stood waiting for an ambulance to arrive. One of those paramedics was supposed to call the local dispatcher, but failed to follow protocol and has since been fired. Once the dispatcher was contacted, the closest ambulance was not on call and one had to be sent from a more distant location. Overall, estimates place the ambulance arrival time at over 30 minutes after Flores fall.. Administrative Code in Arizona stipulates that racing licensees shall provide an ambulance for morning training and races, but only an unmarked SUV was available that afternoon at Turf Paradise. General manager Vince Francia said ...

A cardiac arrest is when a patients heart stops suddenly. Every year, London Ambulance Service treats over 4,000 patients who have had a cardiac arrest, managing, on average, to get to a patient in 7 minutes following a 999 call. Less than 1 in 10 patients survive to get home. The risk of a patient dying or suffering brain damage increase the longer it takes to restart the heart, particularly after 20-30 minutes. An ECMO machine may reduce these risks by pumping a patients blood through an artificial lung and to their vital body organs - temporarily replacing the function of the heart and lungs.. The study is a collaboration between Barts Health NHS Trust, Londons Air Ambulance, London Ambulance Service NHS Trust and Queen Mary University London. It will assess patients who suffer an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest and remain in cardiac arrest 20 minutes later despite the efforts of the ambulance service. We will test whether ECMO can be established within 30 minutes of the patients collapse. ...

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.

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 ...

The northern Minnesota ambulance company involved in a crash that killed a patient last May has been cited for unsafe tires. An assistant St. Louis County attorney said Med-1 ambulance was issued two misdemeanor citations. A Med-1 ambulance was transporting Iven Othoudt, 76, from a hospital in Deer River to one in Duluth for a medical procedure when the ambulance hit an icy area on U.S. 2, sideswiped a sport utility vehicle on the shoulder of the road, then clipped a guardrail and rolled in the ditch.

Results Overall, 30 (2.6%) of the 1161 patients with cardiac arrest survived to hospital discharge. If the patient arrested while the paramedics were on scene, survival to hospital discharge was 14%. The most important predictive factors for survival were response time, initial presenting heart rhythm in ventricular fibrillation and whether the arrest was witnessed. The estimated effect of a 1 min reduction in response time was to improve the odds of survival by 24% (95% CI 4% to 48%). The costs of reducing response times across the board by 1 min at the time of this study were estimated at around £54 million. ...

Background: In the isolated and dynamic health-care setting of critical care air ambulance transport, the quality of clinical care is strongly influenced by non-technical skills such as anticipating, recognising and understanding, decision making, and teamwork. However there are no published reports identifying or applying a non-technical skills framework specific to an intensive care air ambulance setting. The objective of this study was to adapt and evaluate a non-technical skills rating framework for the air ambulance clinical environment.. Methods: In the first phase of the project the anaesthetists non-technical skills (ANTS) framework was adapted to the air ambulance setting, using data collected directly from clinician groups, published literature, and field observation. In the second phase experienced and inexperienced inter-hospital transport clinicians completed a simulated critical care air transport scenario, and their non-technical skills performance was independently rated by two ...
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 ...

Our study of the factors affecting utilization of motorcycle ambulances by pregnant women in Mbale district, Uganda, found that utilization of motorcycle ambulances is associated with older age of the mother (aged 35+ years), involvement of the male partner in the discussion of whether or not to use a motorcycle ambulance, women sharing birth plans with their husbands, and women consulting traditional birth attendants before using the motorcycle ambulances. These findings are consistent with those from other studies [31-34] and suggest that interventions aimed at improving utilization of motorcycle ambulances should focus on reaching younger women (i.e. below 35 years) and husbands of women in reproductive age as well as involving traditional birth attendants in birth preparedness.. The finding that women who used the ambulances were more likely to be aged 35 years or more suggests that many of the young mothers (,35 years) either did not deliver at the health facilities or if they did, they ...
Elizabeth Dutschak and James Kavanagh Dutschak from Jesmond were involved in a head-on collision on Sandy Lane in Gosforth last year.. The pair were travelling home after visiting family when a drink driver careered over a roundabout and smashed into their car which rolled over, leaving James trapped.. James, 19, said: After being hit, we skidded and were thrown into the air. I was told I was trapped for around an hour.. Elizabeth, in her forties, said: I was upside down and a passer-by pulled me from the car. It was horrendous..

The first MICA shift ran on September 9, 1971 with two paramedics and a doctor based at the Royal Melbourne Hospital as part of a three-month trial. During the pilot, the crew responded to 93 cases, mainly coronary care and road trauma patients.. The Minister for Health officially commissioned MICA as a permanent 24-hour component of the ambulance service following the success of the trial.. The first MICA vehicle was a reconditioned Dodge 129 known as Car 208. The hospital clinic bus was converted for the purpose and carried a stretcher, defibrillator and electrocardiography (ECG) machine.. Ambulance officers chosen for MICA undertook a short coronary care course that had previously only been run for specialist nurses.. Within a few years, the MICA unit was attending 250 cases a month and three other MICA units were established at the Alfred Hospital, Frankston Hospital and the Western General Hospital.. It was later decided paramedics were accomplished enough to respond without a doctor and ...
One minute, Michael Hallas and partner Gemma Turnbull were planning a cinema trip. The next, Michael was gripped by the frightening medical episode which nearly killed him.. The incident happened in October last year. Michael had been suffering headaches two weeks prior to the seizure, but nothing that could have forewarned what was to happen next.. Gemma, who made the 999 call, said: I was at home with Michael and everything was normal. We were sat talking about going to the cinema when suddenly he just started having a seizure.. The North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) responded but requested the assistance of a GNAAS doctor due to Michaels agitation.. This is a common reaction of patients experiencing a seizure and is often most effectively controlled by a powerful sedation administered by a doctor.. Gemma added: When the ambulance came, Michael didnt know where he was and couldnt talk. The paramedics tried to keep him calm but it wasnt working. Thats when GNAAS were called ...
