Who calls 999 and why? A survey of the emergency workload of the London Ambulance Service. (1/121)

BACKGROUND: In 1996-97 there were 623,000 emergency (999) calls made to the London Ambulance Service (LAS) and this represents a 30% increase over the previous five years. The reasons for this increase, which is also observed nationally, remain unknown. It has been suggested that some callers may be using the 999 service "inappropriately" but no data are available from the ambulance service. OBJECTIVE: To describe the workload of the emergency ambulance service in London with specific reference to the nature and characteristics of 999 calls, to determine who dials 999 and why, and to establish the number and types of calls that could most appropriately be dealt with by other agencies. DESIGN: A one week census of all emergency calls responded to by the LAS. SETTING: Sixty eight LAS stations. METHODS: Collation of all routine LAS incident forms (LA4) including the classification of the crews' free text description of the incident. This was supplemented by a detailed workload questionnaire for 25% of calls. RESULTS: There were 10,921 calls responded to from 29 April to 5 May 1996. The census showed that the daily number of calls was highest on Saturday and lowest on Wednesday with about half being made during normal general practitioner (GP) working hours. Half of all calls were for women and one third were for people aged > or = 65. Accidents were the commonest type of incident (24%). The remainder comprised various medical conditions such as respiratory, cardiac, and obstetric problems. In 1.5% of calls there was no illness, injury, or assistance required and 5% were for "general assistance" and mostly concerned people aged > or = 65. The workload survey indicated that two thirds of incidents occurred at home and 70% of callers had not tried to contact a GP before dialing 999. In the professional opinion of the responding crew, 60% of calls required a 999 response, with the remainder thought more appropriately dealt with by other services such as primary care, psychiatric services, and social services. CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that while the majority of 999 calls were "appropriate", part of the 999 workload could be dealt with by other services. More research is required to clarify why people contact the 999 service for non-emergency incidents and also to establish the views of GPs and other agencies as to the role and function of the IAS.  (+info)

Study of early warning of accident and emergency departments by ambulance services. (2/121)

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)

Blue calls--time for a change? (3/121)

Prior alert via a landline telephone ("blue call") is commonly used to warn accident and emergency (A&E) departments of the impending arrival of a seriously ill or injured patient. There are no published indications for making such calls or validated protocols on message content. Submitted telephone information has the potential for distortion as it is passed through the control centre resulting in inappropriate resource allocation. This study focuses on the quality and content of the message in the context of the available patient details as well as reviewing the clinical indications for the call. Data were collected on patients for whom "blue calls" were made to an A&E department over three months of 1998. Patients with life threatening conditions who were brought by non-blue light ambulance were identified during the same period. Similar details were collected on these critical patients. Of the 189 "blue calls" with complete details, 73% were admitted, (12% to ITU) and 18% died. Sixty nine per cent of cases were medical, 26% trauma and 5% obstetric. Pre-hospital observations were missing for 25% of patients (excluding patients in cardiac arrest), suggesting that the decisions to make a pre-alert call may have been based on subjective criteria in a significant minority. Information given over the telephone invariably included age, sex and presenting complaint but details of the current condition of the patient were included in only 11%. On reviewing pre-hospital information, a consultant in A&E and an ambulance paramedic judged that a prior alert was justified in 93% but additional information would be helpful in 52% of cases to correctly mobilise resources. Seventy five "clinically critical" patients were found in the three months of the study. Clinically critical patients were patients who had no prior alert, transported by ambulance, who were subsequently admitted to intensive care, theatre, or other high dependency areas. They included 27 patients with symptoms of a myocardial infarction. These patients may have benefited from prior alert. A protocol is suggested to provide criteria for making a prior alert to the A&E department via a landline connection. A standardised message structure would be used using vital signs and mechanism of injury or type of illness to assist in hospital preparation.  (+info)

An analysis of calls referred to the emergency 999 service by NHS Direct. (4/121)

INTRODUCTION: NHS Direct was launched in West Yorkshire in April 1999. A 999 ambulance can be dispatched to the patient as a result of a call to NHS Direct. The aim of this study is to compare cases that had been referred by NHS Direct via the 999 service, with those who had dialled 999 themselves. METHODS: The study was carried out in three accident and emergency (A&E) departments in West Yorkshire, between 1 April 1999 and 21 August 1999. NHS Direct generated 999 calls were identified. The comparison group was selected at random from a list of all other 999 cases attending the three departments. The study involved retrieving basic demographic data, as well as duration of symptoms before dialling 999, triage category on arrival in A&E and disposal of patient. Ethical approval and statistical advice were obtained. RESULTS: 91 NHS Direct generated 999 calls were identified. Of the comparison group (260 cases), 28 were excluded from the study. There were no differences in the triage categories assigned to the two groups on arrival in A&E. There were notable differences in presenting complaint between the two groups and in particular, trauma was less common among the NHS Direct patients (6.6%) compared with those who had self dialled (37.5%). Patients who had first called NHS Direct were younger (p=0.033) and had endured their symptoms for longer (p<0.001); they were less likely to be admitted, and if discharged, were less likely to have follow up arranged (p=0.014). CONCLUSIONS: Both groups received similar triage categories suggesting that severity of illness is equally well assessed by self as by NHS Direct. There are large differences in case mix between the two groups studied and these almost certainly explain the differences in outcome.  (+info)

Transporting the incubator: effects upon a region of the adoption of guidelines for high-risk maternal transport. (5/121)

OBJECTIVE: To inventory maternal transport practices and develop regional transport guidelines. STUDY DESIGN: A survey was administered to perinatal nursing directors of nine community hospitals in a rural region of Virginia. Items included personnel, training, equipment, vehicle, communication, and protocols. Following the survey, regional guidelines were developed using a collaborative process. Their use was promoted in the region. A post-intervention survey documented changes in transport practices. RESULTS: The pre-intervention survey showed wide variability in training and number of personnel and in availability of emergency equipment. Communication was via radio to a dispatcher. No hospital had standing orders or protocols for transport. Guidelines were developed, which included recommendations for personnel, equipment, vehicle, communication methods, and care protocols. Eight of nine hospitals endorsed the guidelines. A follow-up survey revealed practice changes for standing orders/protocols, communication, and equipment. CONCLUSION: Regionwide practice changes can be successfully implemented. Guidelines may be helpful for other regions using primarily one-way maternal transports.  (+info)

Out-of-hours emergency dental services--development of one possible local solution. (7/121)

This paper describes the development of a local solution to the problem of the provision of out-of-hours dental care in Newcastle and North Tyneside in the north east of England. Focus groups were used to review the current provision of, and problems with, dental out-of-hours emergency provision. A consensus conference involving both general dental and medical practitioners, was subsequently used to develop possible alternative methods for the provision of out-of-hours emergency dental services. A centralised service delivered from a secure location in conjunction with general medical practitioners was developed which was dependent on a nurse-led triage. The linkage with NHS Direct may be an opportunity, in some locations, to integrate dental services more fully with other out-of-hours primary care services. The method described allowed a solution to be generated by practitioners themselves, thus giving ownership and acceptance to the chosen option.  (+info)

Emergency ambulance dispatch: is there a case for triage? (8/121)

Emergency telephone calls for an ambulance (999 calls) are usually dealt with first-come first-served. We have devised and assessed criteria that ambulance dispatch might use to prioritize responses. Data were collected retrospectively on consecutive patients presenting to an accident and emergency (A&E) department after a 999 call. An unblinded researcher abstracted data including age, date, time, caller, location, reason for call and A&E diagnosis and each case was examined for ten predetermined criteria necessitating an immediate ambulance response--namely, cardiac arrest; chest pain; shortness of breath; altered mental status/seizure; abdominal/loin pain >65 years old; fresh haematemesis; fall >2m; stabbing; major burns. 471 patients were recruited, 55% male, median age 50 years. 406 calls came from bystanders or the patients themselves, 36 from general practitioners, 8 from other hospitals and 21 from the police. 52% of patients were admitted. 44% met at least one of the above criteria. Most patients did not meet the criteria for an immediate ambulance response but might nonetheless be suitable for an urgent response. The criteria used in this study have the advantage of being based on the history provided by the caller. The introduction of a priority-based dispatch system could reduce response times to those who are seriously ill, and also improve road safety.  (+info)

A criteria-based nationwide Emergency Medical Dispatch (EMD) system was recently implemented in Denmark. We described the system and studied its ability to triage patients according to the severity of their condition by analysing hospital admission and case-fatality risks. This was a register-based follow-up study of all 1-1-2 calls in a 6-month period that were triaged according to the Danish Index - the new criteria-based dispatch protocol. Danish Index data were linked with hospital and vital status data from national registries. Confidence intervals (95%) for proportions with binomial data were computed using exact methods. To test for trend the Wald test was used. Information on level of emergency according to the Danish Index rating was available for 67,135 patients who received ambulance service. Emergency level A (urgent cases) accounted for 51.4% (n = 34,489) of patients, emergency level B for 46.3% (n = 31,116), emergency level C for 2.1% (n = 1,391) and emergency level D for 0.2% (n = 139).

An emergency medical dispatcher is a professional telecommunicator, tasked with the gathering of information related to medical emergencies, the provision of assistance and instructions by voice, prior to the arrival of emergency medical services (EMS), and the dispatching and support of EMS resources responding to an emergency call. The term "emergency medical dispatcher" is also a certification level and a professional designation, certified through the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials-International (APCO), the National Academies of Emergency Dispatch, and PowerPhone, Inc. Many dispatchers, whether certified or not, will dispatch using a standard Emergency Medical Dispatch protocol. A dispatch function of sorts has always been a feature of both emergency medical service and its predecessor, ambulance service. The information processing, if only to identify the problem and the location of the patient, has always been a logical part of the process of call completion. Prior ...
What does this all mean for investors? The obvious concern is that removal of priority dispatch and exposure to balancing markets will increase revenue risk for renewables generators.. So, why is the EU removing these rules on priority dispatch once the mainstay of the Commissions wholesale market rules? The main argument is to help reduce the costs of balancing supply and demand, and managing network constraints. Generally, it is most economic to dispatch renewables first because their running costs are close to zero regardless of whether they have priority dispatch.. But, when there is surplus generation, the most economic option is sometimes to curtail renewables ahead of other plant. For example, turning down an inflexible gas plant only to restart and ramp it up a few hours later can be expensive and inefficient. By contrast, wind generators can be turned down relatively easily.. Therefore, giving renewables priority dispatch can sometimes increase the overall costs of managing the system. ...

AIM: The aim of this study was to evaluate (a) the differences between men and women in symptom profile, allocated life support level (LSL), and presence of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), life-threatening condition (LTC), or death and (b) whether a computer-based decision support system could improve the allocation of LSL. PATIENTS: All patients in Göteborg, Sweden, who called the dispatch center because of chest pain during 3 months (n = 503) were included in this study. METHODS: Age, sex, and symptom profile were background variables. Based on these, we studied allocation of LSL by the dispatchers and its relationship to AMI, LTC, and death. All evaluations were made from a sex perspective. Finally, we studied the potential benefit of using a statistical model for allocating LSL. RESULTS: The advanced life support level (ALSL) was used equally frequently for men and women. There was no difference in age or symptom profile between men and women in relation to allocation. However, the ...

Click image to hear a recent example of a Last Call, broadcast by a dispatcher for the Omaha (NE) Police Department on May 26, 2015, in honor of detective Kerrie Orozco, gunned down while serving a warrant on May 20th.. As with many "high risk/low frequency" incidents, to cite Gordon Graham, there seems to be a large inconsistency in Americas 9-1-1 dispatch centers as to how these calls should be handled. Given the extremely stressful, emotional environment during which a Last Call broadcast is to be made, trying to come up with what to say, when, and by whom from scratch, in the immediate aftermath of a death can be problematic, to say the least. Having a procedure in place - just as many public safety agencies have Standard Operating Procedures for funeral and Honor Guard protocols - is a kind of procedural insurance policy that pays its dividends in having mapped out in advance how you should proceed, during a time of extreme grief, in formulating the what/when/how/etc. considerations needed ...

We have scientific consensus that global temperatures are rising. Despite this, debate and argument continues about whether global warming is occurring, the extent, possible causes and potential solutions to the problem.. In early January 2013, as this debate continued to rage, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology was confronted with a dilemma. Forecast temperatures were so extreme that they exceeded the colour range available for its isotherm charts. Isotherm charts are used to indicate temperature across the continent, and have lines that join points of equal temperature. Different colours, starting with cool ...
Call-takers tethered to phone headsets are typing vital information into computers and tossing it to others who assign police, fire and medical rescue units. A Chronicle investigation of San Franciscos 911 dispatch system found that 27 percent of first responders arrive late on the scene of high-priority medical emergencies - increasing the medical risks to the stricken. The newspapers review of about 200,000 emergency medical calls during the past four years found that at least 439 people died while waiting for a late ambulance or after delayed medical help arrived. According to 911 medical experts, the elements of a model system include well-trained dispatchers, a sufficient number of ambulances and medics, efficient record-keeping, prompt responses to all neighborhoods, systemwide accountability, and a high rate of success in saving victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Experts also recommend the hiring of additional paramedics for early morning and peak hours when delays are worse, and more
A device for identifying a specific station, among a plurality of geographically-dispersed stations represented by a common phone number and serviced by a common PBX, which has initiated an emergency 9-1-1 telephone call. The specific station having initiated the call is identified to the appropriate public safety answering point (PSAP) which is connected in an enhanced 9-1-1 emergency call network. Typically, the PSAP and PBX have different protocols. The device functions to convert the protocol of the PBX to the protocol of the emergency call network. Further, it assigns an arbitrary designation representing the specific station identified as having initiated the emergency call. Further, the invention transmits the arbitrary designation to the appropriate PSAP for responding to the call.
Introduction: Survival of people in cardiac arrest depends on EMS response time. Laypeople may use both national (155) and European (112) phone numbers for requesting EMS in the Czech Republic. The 155 medical dispatchers deal with the request directly while 112 fire-brigade operators have to transfer the call to EMS. It was unclear, whether use of the different systems may cause any delay when calling for help. This study was aimed to compare times needed for contacting medical dispatch.. Methods: A prospective observational study was performed during a 1-month period in the Hradec Kralove region (0.55 mil.) as a part of the EUROCALL study conducted on behalf of ERC. The 180 test calls (6 per day) were simulating request for EMS and randomly distributed to follow diurnal distribution, day of the week, use of a landline or a mobile phone, and 155 or 112 numbers. Multiple successive time intervals were recorded with an online timer. Data analysis was performed using Prism 6.0 for Mac OS X ...
A quick update on the Columbus Dispatch poll: The folks at the Dispatch have kindly provided the full text of the questions asked on their final pre-election survey on Ohio Issues 1 through 5. The full text appears on the jump. The language used for the Dispatch poll was greatly condensed as compared to the actual ballot language (as described by Dispatch reporter Darrel Rowland), but not nearly as condensed as I had guessed. Looking only at the text of the descriptions (and excluding the titles) the poll questions varied in length from 64 to 128 words while the actual language varied from 210 to 932 words. In my original post, I had guessed incorrectly that the poll had used the even more condensed language that appeared in the graphic sidebar alongside the original poll story.

To dispatchers the guys and girls that are on the calls are our responsibility. My job every day is to get each and every one of my girls and guys and patients home safely. We want everyone to return home to their families and loved ones, and sadly on September 11th, 2001 that did not happen. The dispatchers could not have imagined it would have turned out that way.. and the first responders that were sent into the towers did so willingly. It was their job to try to- and they succeeded in- saving many lives. At the same time so many lost their own lives. So many were forever effected.There is no doubt in my mind that it sticks with the dispatchers every single day of their lives. ...
What really made the dispatch gross was the resident mice. Id experienced one of the furballs run over my shoe while I was taking a call one night. I felt the sensation and looked down, only to see a tail disappearing under my console desk. We had traps set up through-out the room. Arguments ensued when we heard the snap, knowing a mouse had been caught in one of our traps. No one wanted to dig around between equipment to retrieve the trap, much less dispose of the carcass. Over the shift the verbal sparring continued until one brave soul finally gave in and found the trap, with the now stiff, and sometimes bloody, remains. He, or she, would stomp out of dispatch and head out ot the bathroom, where the tiny carcass would be placed in a trashcan. The trap would then be reset in the same spot as before ...
Downloadable! This paper describes three approaches to assigning tasks to earth observing satellites (EOS). A fast and simple priority dispatch method is described and shown to produce acceptable schedules most of the time. A look ahead algorithm is then introduced that outperforms the dispatcher by about 12% with only a small increase in run time. These algorithms set the stage for the introduction of a genetic algorithm that uses job permutations as the population. The genetic approach presented here is novel in that it uses two additional binary variables, one to allow the dispatcher to occasionally skip a job in the queue and another to allow the dispatcher to occasionally allocate the worst position to the job. These variables are included in the recombination step in a natural way. The resulting schedules improve on the look ahead by as much as 15% at times and 3% on average. We define and use the window-constrained packing problem to model the bare bones of the EOS scheduling problem.

John Schnizlein questioned the need to worry about wrong locaiton information in an emergency phone call. Steve Norris noted that it is quite common in certain jurisdictions to fake incidents that require police reaction just to give neighbors a bad reputation. Stuart Goldman noted that fake location information in an emergency call could be used by terrorists to dispatch first responders to the wrong location. Randy Gellens noted that it may be easier to trust location information from a SIP proxy than from a call originator, but sophisticated attackers can stand up a SIP proxy. Andrew Newton and John Schnizlein noted that emergency call takers usually ask callers for information in addition to what they get from the network ...
Jeff J. Clawson, MD. Dispatch Priority Training: Strengthening the weak link. In the last ten years, the EMS response in this country has undergone an incredible evolution. Improvement has been the general trend, exemplified by the move from untrained mortuary services and first aid vehicles, to EMT ambulances, and finally ALS paramedic systems. Responders expertise has been upgraded, and the fact that EMTs now receive hundreds of hours and paramedics over a thousand hours of intensive emergency training indicates the importance of such training in EMS. But at the center of this well-trained, specialized, and expensive EMS configuration deciding whether or not to respond, who responds, and how they respond, is the emergency dispatcher, who likely has not been given even a single hour of emergency medical instruction. For many years, emergency dispatchers have remained the weakest link in the EMS chain of response.. In November, 1976, the Department of Transportation developed a program for ...

As with the Emergency Stroke Calls: Obtaining Rapid Telephone Triage (ESCORTT) study16 and that of Ramanujam et al,17 in the USA, little difference has been found in the time from ambulance dispatch to arrival in hospital regardless of presumed diagnosis (by ambulance dispatcher and emergency medical staff) with median transit times in both studies of the order of 40 min. However, in keeping with previous work, assessment and communication of that presumed diagnosis does seem to affect subsequent management. Studies from Australia,18 ,19 the USA,10 ,20 ,21 Korea22 and Singapore11 have all found that prealerting reduces both door-to-imaging and door-to-needle times, although this is the first study to identify these associations in a UK setting. One striking feature of these previous studies is the wide variation in proportion of stroke cases which were prealerted, varying from 22% to 67%,11 ,18 with the current study falling somewhere in between at 44%. It is not clear from these studies what ...

My definition of risk taker may be different than yours.. I dont jump out of planes, I am not a world traveler, I dont have any tattoos or piercings (beyond the basic holes in my ears), and for some reason, my wardrobe is filled with a lot of grey and black (Im working on this one).. But I definitely believe in emotional risk taking - noticing myself on a daily basis - my challenges, my issues, my triggers. Its not always pretty, but I notice.. I watch myself closely. When I feel fear, anxiety, defensiveness, envy, all the normal human emotions, my first question is, why? What am I afraid of, what do I think it means, where does it all stem from? And usually the answer goes something like this: Im afraid of being rejected, Im afraid that who I am is wrong, Im afraid Ill be alone.. Yikes, and yikes, but thats usually the bottom-line truth for me. At the same time, I know its not "the truth" at all, these are just old wounds and pain that started as love and got all tangled up in ...

Introduction Early recognition of an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) can increase the patients likelihood of survival. As the first point of contact for patients accessing medical care through emergency services, emergency medical dispatchers (EMDs) represent the earliest potential identification point for AMIs. The objective of the study was to determine how AMI cases were coded and prioritized at the dispatch point, and also to describe the distribution of these cases by patient age and gender. Hypothesis/Problem No studies currently exist that describe the EMDs ability to correctly triage AMIs into Advanced Life Support (ALS) response tiers ...

With the use of scheduling software, we were able to streamline internal communication of work schedules. Software can be accessed from any workstation, providing the entire staff an easy access to schedule information. They can view open slots for taking time-off, or print their individual schedules. Our shift supervisors can easily add any shift annotations, like no-shows due to sickness, or other unexpected circumstances. This allows schedule coordinators to adjust the schedule on the fly. The system also gives the management team instant access to scheduling data allowing them to monitor daily operations of the dispatch center. Access to the system is protected with passwords, giving the ability to change the schedule only to authorized personnel.. Using scheduling software also helps RRRDC to respond instantly and effortlessly to any reporting requests, as all scheduling information is transparent and easy to retrieve. With the use of scheduling software we do not need to waste our valuable ...
Before I talk about these numbers in detail, let me give you a quick primer on some of the terminology.. Standardized tests do not report scores as simple percentages of right answers. Instead, a students Raw Score (the number of questions that were answered correctly on each subtest) is transformed into a Standard Score. A Standard Score of 100 is considered Average. Standard Scores can run high or low, in either direction.. If you want to compare a score to other test takers of the same age or grade, you can look at the Percentile Rank. For example, a Standard Score of 100 equates to a 50th Percentile Rank. Put another way, if you lined 100 kids up with highest to lowest Standard Scores, someone with a 100 would be right in the middle of the line - with half the students achieving less than them and the other half achieving more. Grade Equivalent scores, on the other hand, allow us to compare the total number of correct answers the average test taker got. For example, an average 12-year old ...
We live in a culture that drives us to consumerism and external fulfillment from the moment we can watch TV. Which is not to say that we arent made that way to begin with. The "mine" stage of a toddler is certainly about getting what I need from outside myself, and rightfully so. Its a good survival mentality for a 2 year old. The thing is, when we mature, when we realize that we wont always get what we think we need from outside ourselves, then we learn that our needs are not so plentiful to begin with. We learn to back away from always looking out there with expectation and, hopefully, we realize, that all we need is right here, right now. We draw our expectations into the presence of Now, a time/space intersect. Kairos, the "moment of opportunity," that graced moment (moment used figuratively here) when, if we open ourselves fully to life, we realize the paradox of being empty and full at the very same time ...

The town also wants to know how the Public Works Departments communications could, and should, fit into a new system.The council last month gave that task to the consultants.It is proper for an ad hoc committee to meet with, and coordinate the needs of, first responders -- the police, fire and ambulance departments.It is proper for the committee to seek comment from the public.But all of this should not take a year.The consultants already have been paid nearly $20,000; the committee does not need to spend precious time redoing that work.The Town Council did ask for updates at the three- and six-month intervals, but it must give the committee a much tighter deadline for completion.Public safety is too vitally important to let a year go by without fulfilling corrective action.It simply is unacceptable for emergency services communication coverage to be at only 60 percent in New Milford.|br/||br/|
Beyond being a lover of all Gods creatures, this request is personal for me. While on a weekend getaway our dog of 13 years managed to get through the gate of a fenced in back yard and go for a run. While not unusual, she did slip her collar before getting out. After awhile she still had not returned and this was definitely odd. Shes always ran around for a bit and came straight back wanting to be let back in the gate. We arrived back from our trip on Monday & started calling the pound since Lady had been missing overnight and there was no sign of her anywhere. No answer, the pound was closed. Tuesday: No answer, the pound was closed. Wednesday: Dispatch was called to see why no one was at the pound for 2 consecutive days & we were told no one was there today either so we should call back tomorrow and ask if someone was there. Thursday: Same response from the dispatcher informing us we had to call back the next day. At this point my dad became angry and asked to speak to an officer to ...
If words dont work, perhaps pictures will. That could very well be the City of Terraces strategy as it joins in the call for the province to replace the aging Mills Memorial Hospital.

While I was in junior high school, I could sometimes overhear the boys conversations when they were talking about the latest porn videos theyd been watching at home, comments such as "You seen that girl in the porn movie; she had one dick in her pussy and another in her ass." And they were all laughing. Other times, boys were using pornographic scenarios to terrorize us as girls - and, in some cases, to "shut us up." This went from telling us what they had seen in a porn movie - things like "Hey, I saw this film yesterday. In it, there was a girl with a cock in her cunt, one in her ass, and one in her mouth at the same time." - to telling us pornographic stories they invented with us and them included in this stuff they were saying, like "You suck my dick," "I take you up the ass," etc… This was pretty degrading but, still, the only word I could think of was "dirty ...

This 85 pound lady was carried from the mountain by her son and daughter. It took them hours to get here.. She got sick today.. She was cold and restless and I could only feel her carotid pulse at the base of her neck…not near her jaw.. Two little IVs woke her us as she continued to have watery diarhea on the blue mattress. Her daughter kept cleaning it up and kept her head down. She cleaned things as fast as possible because I am sure she thought her mom may get thrown out of the clinic. Actually we wouldnt have thrown her out, but her mom and her family have never been included in much of anything except the Exceptionally Poor Society (EPS). And I am sure they feel like they deserve nothing.. John A. Carroll, MD. www.haitianhearts.org. ...

I will not bother to find out where the break-even point on my system lies. As chromatic says, the milliseconds saved are unimportant.

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 ...

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 ...
The Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) is the chief provider of out-of-hospital emergency care and ambulance transport in the state of Queensland, Australia. It falls under the control of the Government of Queensland and is one of the largest ambulance services in the world. The service provides a high level of emergency care and transport services to the entirety of Queensland (typical population 4.3 million people, covering an area of 1.77 million square kilometres. The Queensland Ambulance Service provides emergency response services, pre-hospital patient care, specialised transport services, coordination of aero-medical services and inter-hospital transfers. Approximately 4000 FTE staff are employed by QAS, with approximately 87% as front-line operatives, who together deliver their services from 290 response locations across the state. In the 2015/16 financial year, the service handled over 946,000 cases, answered 737,803 triple zero calls and had an overall patient satisfaction rating of ...
Determining optimal surveillance networks for an emerging pathogen is difficult since it is not known beforehand what the characteristics of a pathogen will be or where it will emerge. The resources for surveillance of infectious diseases in animals and wildlife are often limited and mathematical modeling can play a supporting role in examining a wide range of scenarios of pathogen spread. We demonstrate how a hierarchy of mathematical and statistical tools can be used in surveillance planning help guide successful surveillance and mitigation policies for a wide range of zoonotic pathogens. The model forecasts can help clarify the complexities ofmore » potential scenarios, and optimize biosurveillance programs for rapidly detecting infectious diseases. Using the highly pathogenic zoonotic H5N1 avian influenza 2006-2007 epidemic in Nigeria as an example, we determined the risk for infection for localized areas in an outbreak and designed biosurveillance stations that are effective for different ...
Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is a major cause of death worldwide. This systematic review aimed to assess the effects of continuous chest compression CPR (with or without rescue breathing) versus conventional CPR plus rescue breathing (interrupted chest compression with pauses for breaths) of non-asphyxial OHCA. It identified 4 randomized controlled trials. Three studies assessed CPR provided by untrained bystanders and 1 assessed CPR provided by trained professionals. When CPR was performed by bystanders, survival to hospital discharge was higher with chest compression alone than with interrupted chest compression with pauses for rescue breathing. When CPR was performed by professionals, survival to hospital discharge was slightly lower with continuous chest compressions plus asynchronous rescue breathing compared with interrupted chest compression plus rescue breathing. The number of people who survived to hospital admission was slightly higher in those treated with interrupted chest ...
Kentenha/ October 19, 2015. TERRITORY OF AKWESASNE - The Joint Emergency Response Team is continuing to provide information to local residents in regards to asbestos material that was detected on Lot #7 in Kana:takon (St. Regis) and extends into Lot #360 in the southern portion of Akwesasne. The Joint Emergency Response Team; comprised of environmental, emergency measures/planning and health technicians from the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne and the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe; are monitoring the situation and are able to provide the following update: During the summer of 2015, a local contractor was hired to spread land fill that was deposited on the property approximately 15 years ago and left undisturbed. A second contractor was employed to further grade the surface using a power rake.. The above work revealed suspicious materials that were submitted by MCAs Environmental Health Officer to Pinchin Ltd. Laboratory for a bulk sample analysis on September 18, 2015.

August 31, 2017 Two hundred Friedrich Chill room air conditioners, totaling 10,400-pounds of window A/C units worth an estimated $55,000, will be delivered by Friedrich employees tomorrow to Rockport, a Texas coastal town that has been devastated by Hurricane and Tropical Storm Harvey.. The donated Friedrich A/C units will be used by the Rockport Volunteer Fire Department, which is struggling to provide shelter for emergency responders in the area, including law enforcement officers, volunteer firefighters and emergency medical personnel and dispatchers, after many have lost their own homes and businesses. As a result, nearly 100 emergency responders are currently camped out in the tiny Rockport fire station, where conditions are exhausting, uncomfortable and cramped. The situation is similar across the county, in fire stations and police stations alike.. "The destruction is unfathomable and the community desperately needs help, so were doing everything we can to keep our local emergency ...
