Out-of-hours service in Denmark: the effect of a structural change. (1/2311)

BACKGROUND: In Denmark, the provision of out-of-hours care by general practitioners (GPs) was reformed at the start of 1992. Rota systems were replaced locally by county-based services. The new out-of-hours service resulted in a considerable reduction in the total number of GPs on call. AIM: To describe how the patients experienced the change from a satisfaction point of view, and how the pattern of patient contact and the fee for GPs changed with the new system. METHOD: The county of Funen was chosen as the geographical area where data were collected. A questionnaire measuring patient satisfaction was posted before the change, immediately after the change, and three years later to a random selection of patients who had been in contact with the out-of-hours service within two weeks before the mailing date. All primary care services for the Danish population are stored in a database (National Health Service Registry). From this continuously updated database, the contact pattern and the fee for GPs were extracted for 1991, 1992, and 1995. RESULTS: The total number of patient contacts was reduced by 16% in the first year, but by only 6% three years later. Three years after the change, there were more than twice as many telephone consultations as before the change, and there were only a third as many home visits. After three years, the GPs' fees were reduced by 20%. There was a significant decrease in patient satisfaction, although the overall level remained high. This decrease was lower three years after the change than immediately after the new system was introduced. CONCLUSION: The new service had a major cost-effectiveness benefit, but there was a price to pay in patient satisfaction.  (+info)

Delay in presentation of patients with acute stroke to hospital in Oxford. (2/2311)

We identified prospectively all patients (181 patients, 183 episodes) admitted to hospital in Oxford with acute stroke from 1 January to 30 June 1997. Data were inadequate in 30, leaving 153 episodes in 151 patients (63 men, 90 women). Structured interviews were used to investigate the timing of events preceding admission. Most strokes (91%) occurred at home, and 36% of patients were alone. After a median delay of 15 min, 56% called a GP (median 30 min response), 41% an ambulance (median 48 min to admission), and 3% went directly to A&E. Median time from hospital admission to doctor assessment was 69 min. Factors reducing delay were: initially calling an ambulance rather than a GP (p < 0.0001); onset not at home (p < 0.001); symptoms improving between onset and admission (p < 0.002); and altered consciousness (p < 0.002). The stroke was not recognized by 44% of patients, but no significant delay resulted. Overall, 31% were admitted within 3 h of onset, 46% within 6 h. Initial contact with the GP is a major determinant of delay. If acute therapies for stroke become available, GPs should be the primary targets for an educational initiative.  (+info)

Rider injury rates and emergency medical services at equestrian events. (3/2311)

BACKGROUND: Horse riding is a hazardous pastime, with a number of studies documenting high rates of injury and death among horse riders in general. This study focuses on the injury experience of cross country event riders, a high risk subset of horse riders. METHOD: Injury data were collected at a series of 35 equestrian events in South Australia from 1990 to 1998. RESULTS: Injury rates were found to be especially high among event riders, with frequent falls, injuries, and even deaths. The highest injury rates were among the riders competing at the highest levels. CONCLUSION: There is a need for skilled emergency medical services at equestrian events.  (+info)

Where do people go for treatment of sexually transmitted diseases? (4/2311)

CONTEXT: Major public health resources are devoted to the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) through public STD clinics. However, little is known about where people actually receive treatment for STDs. METHODS: As part of the National Health and Social Life Survey, household interviews were performed from February to September 1992 with 3,432 persons aged 18-59. Weighted population estimates and multinomial response methods were used to describe the prevalence of self-reported STDs and patterns of treatment utilization by persons who ever had a bacterial or viral STD. RESULTS: An estimated two million STDs were self-reported in the previous year, and 22 million 18-59-year-olds self-reported lifetime STDs. Bacterial STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia, nongonococcal urethritis, pelvic inflammatory disease and syphilis) were more common than viral STDs (genital herpes, genital warts, hepatitis and HIV). Genital warts were the most commonly reported STD in the past year, while gonorrhea was the most common ever-reported STD. Almost half of all respondents who had ever had an STD had gone to a private practice for treatment (49%); in comparison, only 5% of respondents had sought treatment at an STD clinic. Respondents with a bacterial STD were seven times more likely to report going to an STD clinic than were respondents with a viral STD--except for chlamydia, which was more likely to be treated at family planning clinics. Men were significantly more likely than women to go to an STD clinic. Young, poor or black respondents were all more likely to use a family planning clinic for STD treatment than older, relatively wealthy or white respondents. Age, sexual history and geographic location did not predict particular types of treatment-seeking. CONCLUSIONS: The health care utilization patterns for STD treatment in the United States are complex. Specific disease diagnosis, gender, race and income status all affect where people will seek treatment. These factors need to be taken into account when STD prevention strategies are being developed.  (+info)

Time course of respiratory decompensation in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a prospective, double-blind study of peak flow changes prior to emergency department visits. (5/2311)

The aim of this study was to look at changes in peak expiratory flow rates (PEFR) prior to emergency department visits for decompensated chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Twelve patients with an irreversible component of airflow obstruction on pulmonary function tests were assessed. At entry, all subjects were instructed in the use of a mini-Wright peak flow meter with electronic data storage. They then entered a 6-month monitoring phase in which they recorded PEFR twice daily, before and after bronchodilators. The meter displays were disabled so that the patients and their physicians were blinded to all values. Medical care was provided in the customary manner. Patients were considered to have respiratory decompensation if they required treatment for airflow obstruction in the Emergency Department (ED) and no other causes of dyspnea could be identified. Simple linear regression was used to model changes in PEFR over time. The 12 subjects had 22 episodes of respiratory decompensation during 1741 patient-days of observation. Two episodes could not be analysed because of missing values. Ten episodes in seven subjects were characterized by a significant linear decline in at least one peak flow parameter prior to presentation. The mean rates of change for the four daily parameters varied from 0.22% to 0.27% predicted per day (or 1.19 to 1.44 1 min-1 day-1). The average decrement in these parameters ranged from 30.0 to 33.8 1 min-1 (or 18.6%-25.9% of their baseline values). No temporal trends were found for the 10 episodes occurring in the other five subjects. We concluded that respiratory decompensation is characterized by a gradual decline in PEFR in about half of cases. Future studies should be done to elucidate the mechanisms of respiratory distress in the other cases.  (+info)

Older people's use of ambulance services: a population based analysis. (6/2311)

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)

Delphi study into planning for care of children in major incidents. (7/2311)

This paper describes a Delphi study used to identify and improve areas of concern in the planning of care for children in major incidents. The Delphi was conducted over three rounds and used a multidisciplinary panel of 22 experts. Experts were selected to include major incident, immediate care, emergency medicine, and paediatric specialists. This paper presents a series of consensus statements that represent the Delphi group's opinion on the management of children in major incidents. The statements cover all phases of major incident planning and response. Paediatric services may play a vital role in the preparation and response to a major incident involving children. This paper represents a consensus view on how best to plan and respond to major incidents involving children. An accompanying paper describes the practical implementation of this guidance.  (+info)

BACKGROUND: In pre-hospital Emergency Medical Services (EMS) more research is needed to direct and underpin care delivery and inform policy. To target future research efforts, this study aimed to determine future research priorities with representatives of the EMS field.. METHODS: A four-round online Delphi survey was used to discuss different viewpoints and reach consensus on research priorities. A multidisciplinary panel of experts was recruited in the field of pre-hospital EMS and adjoining (scientific) professional organisations (n = 62). 48 research topics were presented in Delphi I, and the panel was asked to rate their importance on a 5-point scale. In Delphi II and III the panel selected their priority research topics, and arguments why and suggestions for research questions were collected and reported back. In Delphi IV appropriateness of the remaining topics and agreement within the expert panel was taken into account to make up the final list of research priorities.. RESULTS: The ...

The return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) after cardiac arrest (RACA) score may have implications as a quality indicator for the emergency medical services (EMS) system. We aimed to validate this score externally in a physician staffed urban EMS system. We conducted a retrospective cohort study. Data on resuscitation attempts from the Helsinki EMS cardiac arrest registry from 1.1.2008 to 31.12.2010 were collected and analyzed. For each attempted resuscitation the RACA score variables were collected and the score calculated. The endpoint was ROSC defined as palpable pulse over 30 s. Calibration was assessed by comparing predicted and observed ROSC rates in the whole sample, separately for shockable and non-shockable rhythm, and separately for resuscitations lead by a specialist, registrar or medical supervisor (i.e., senior paramedic). Data are presented as medians and interquartile ranges. Statistical testing included chi-square test, the Mann-Whitney U test, Hosmer-Lemeshow goodness of fit test and
We conducted a comprehensive and systematic review of the available literature describing prehospital identification or management of patients with sepsis and retrieved only observational studies and no randomised controlled trials. Our review shows that sepsis is a common condition for EMS patients, with an estimated incidence ranging from 1% to 8% among EMS-transported patients. However, only a few studies of moderate quality have evaluated the accuracy of prehospital identification of sepsis, and randomised controlled trials describing potential treatment strategies are lacking.. Our review provides the first comprehensive review of the identification and management of patients with sepsis by EMS providers in the prehospital setting. The most common approaches applied by EMS providers to identify sepsis are a variation of SIRS criteria or screening tools that include aspects of SIRS. Our findings suggest that EMS providers abilities to correctly identify this condition vary considerably ...

STEMI patients can be diagnosed in the pre-hospital phase in two ways. The first option is diagnosis in the ambulance via an emergency medical services (EMS) call (118 or 911) by the patient or by a general practitioner. The second option is diagnosis at a referral non-PCI centre after self-referral of the patient or when no pre-hospital ECG is performed by EMS in the ambulance. Pre-hospital diagnosis in the ambulance gives the best outcomes for STEMI patients, since pre-hospital treatment can be started directly in the ambulance after diagnosis and triage.2 ,3 Subsequently, these patients are directly transferred in an ambulance from the pick-up place to the nearest PCI centre with 24/7 service, bypassing the emergency departments of the nearby referral non-PCI centres. The second option, diagnosis at a non-PCI centre, also occurs often, especially in rural areas. These patients are transported to a PCI centre, following diagnosis and triage of STEMI, preferably … ...
Hospital officials from Lourdes Health System and Virtua are united in opposing pending state legislation they say would undermine the regional Emergency Medical Services system.. At press, state lawmakers were set to vote on Senate Bill 2980 and Assembly Bill 4526 June 25 that would allow Cooper University Hospital to take over Emergency Medical Services for the City of Camden, including the Advanced Life Support (paramedic) service which has been provided by Virtua for 38 years.. On June 24 Lourdes and Virtua held a joint press conference at the New Jersey State House to voice strong opposition to the bill. At the press conference, the CEOs cited examples of how this legislation would undermine what they described as a well-established, high-quality regional EMS system and does not represent a movement toward a better-coordinated system.. The fact is that the existing system established in 1977 provides a high-quality service to the residents of the City of Camden and has saved thousands of ...

Objective: This study aims to analyse the number and characteristics of calls made to the Málaga Prehospital Emergency Service (PES) for suicidal behavior based on sociodemographic, temporal, and health care variables.Method: This is a retrospective, descriptive study that records all calls made to the PES due to suicidal behavior (suicide attempts and completed suicides) in 2014. Sociodemographic variables (age, sex, and health district), variables related to the calls (time-slot, degree of sunlight, type of day, month, season of the year, prioritization, and number of resources mobilized) were extracted from these calls. The number of cases and percentages were presented for the qualitative variables. The rates per 100,000 were calculated by sex and health district and presented with the corresponding 95% confidence interval (CI).Results: Of the total valid calls to PES (n = 181,824), 1,728 calls were made due to suicidal behavior (0.9%). The mean age was 43.21 (±18) years, 57.4% were women, and the

The early recognition of severe sepsis is important; however, early identification of severe sepsis can be challenging, especially in the prehospital setting. As previous research has shown, advanced notification of time-sensitive disease states by prehospital personnel can improve outcomes and time to initiation of treatments. Prehospital personnel can potentially impact outcomes in sepsis through early identification and treatment implementations, improving processes of care and transition of care. Further research is needed for a full evaluation of prehospital treatment effects of identification of sepsis and treatment by prehospital personnel and the impact on outcomes.

Introduction: Although pain management in EDs has been fully addressed in clinical trials, prehospital settings have rarely been investigated. Objective: The present study was conducted to compare the effectiveness of intravenous acetaminophen with that of ketorolac in pre-hospital pain control. Method: This randomized clinical trial (RCT) was performed at a prehospital setting during EMS missions in Tehran, Iran. The eligible candidates comprised all patients over the age of 7 years with a complaint of moderate to severe pain. The patients were randomly assigned to two groups, one receiving 30 mg of intravenous (IV) ketorolac and the other 1 g of IV acetaminophen. The pain intensity was measured using a visual analog scale (VAS) before administering the analgesic and upon admission to the ED. Results: The present study was conducted on 150 patients aged 8-81 years with a mean age of 40.4 ± 17.7, including 84 (56%) males. The mean reduction in the pain score was 14.9±8.6 in the acetaminophen ...

Results-During a 12-month period, 441 EMS-transported patients were enrolled; of which, 371 (84.1%) were EMS-suspected strokes and 70 (15.9%) were EMS-missed strokes. Overall, 264 cases (59.9%) were confirmed as either ischemic stroke (n=186) or transient ischemic attack (n=78). The sensitivity of EMS stroke recognition was 73.5% (95% confidence interval, 67.7-78.7), and PPV was 52.3% (95% confidence interval, 47.1-57.5). Sensitivity (84.7% versus 30.9%; P,0.0001) and PPV (56.2% versus 30.4%; P=0.0004) were higher among cases with Cincinnati Prehospital Stroke Scale documentation. In multivariate analysis, Cincinnati Prehospital Stroke Scale documentation was independently associated with EMS sensitivity (odds ratio, 12.0; 95% confidence interval, 5.7-25.5) and PPV (odds ratio, 2.5; 95% confidence interval, 1.3-4.7).. ...
With the increasing of the population of elderly people in recent years, the need of emergency medical services is also growing. Emergency medical service (EMS) is the first defense line when people encounter diseases and injuries. The purpose of EMS is to reduce patients secondary damage in patients and increase the survival rate or have better prognosis. The EMS procedures must be closely and appropriately integrated in the courses at the accident place, on route to the emergency department, and the medical care after arriving emergency department. In the past four years, we committed to the study of pre-hospital emergency medical decision Model (NSC 99-2221-E-038-009-MY2 01-2221-E-038-005- and 102-2221-E-038 -002 -). We have established an emergency decision-making model by using 11 factors of Emergency Medical Services (EMS). The AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process, AHP) was used to calculate the weighting of the factors to complete the models objective function. The model can be used as a ...

Rapid access to medical treatment is a key determinant of outcomes for cardiovascular events. Emergency medical services (EMS) play an important role in delivering early treatment for acute cardiovascular events. Attention has increased on the potential for EMS data to contribute to our understanding of prehospital treatment. Maine recently began to explore the possible role of EMS data in cardiovascular disease surveillance and cardiovascular health program planning and evaluation. We describe the Maine EMS data system, discuss findings on ease of data use and data quality, provide a sample of findings, and share how we plan to use EMS data for program planning and evaluation of community-level interventions and to partner with EMS provider organizations to improve treatment. Our objective is to increase understanding of the promise and limitations of using EMS data for cardiovascular disease surveillance and program planning and evaluation ...
Emergency Medical Services, more commonly known as EMS, is an essential public service. You can easily recognize EMS when you see ambulances and medical helicopters responding to incidents in our community, but EMS is much more than emergency medical response and transport. EMS is part of an intricate system of agencies and organizations; communications and transportation networks; trauma systems, as well as hospitals, trauma centers, and specialty care centers; rehabilitation facilities; and highly trained professionals -including volunteer and career prehospital personnel, physicians, nurses, therapists, administrators, government officials and an informed public that knows what to do in a medical emergency. Each player in the EMS system has an essential job to perform as part of a coordinated system of care. -Adapted from NHTSA. ...

OBJECTIVE On 10/11/08, the Cleveland Clinic Heart and Vascular Institute (HVI) initiated a dedicated Cardiac Medical Emergency Team (CMET) for all cardiovascular patients requiring emergency cardiac care (ECC) including urgent medical evaluation and resuscitation for cardiopulmonary arrest (CPA) or acute respiratory compromise (ARC). CMET consists of a Critical Care Staff, Cardiology Fellow, Cardiothoracic Surgical Fellow, Respiratory Therapist, and 2 Critical Care Nurses. All CMET members have current ACLS training. Monthly ACLS Mock Codes are performed on individual units for systematic integration of ACLS into HVI care. The purpose of this study was to characterize CPA in-hospital outcomes after resuscitation by a dedicated CMET.. METHODS In this prospective study of adult (,18 yo) HVI in-patients from 10/11/08 to 6/1/09, CPA was defined as resuscitation requiring chest compressions or defibrillation. ARC and pre-CPA Do Not Resuscitate patients were excluded.. RESULTS During the study ...
During a three-year period in seven metropolitan areas in the western United States, the emergency medical services system sent more than 85,000 injured patients to major trauma hospitals who didnt need to go there - costing the health care system more than $130 million per year, according to an Oregon Health & Science University study published today in the journal Health Affairs. The study gathered data from emergency services calls from 94 EMS agencies in the seven metropolitan areas from January 2006 through December 2008. The agencies were using national trauma triage guidelines to decide where to transport the injured patients, so the studys findings are likely representative of what happens across the United States. What our study shows is there are huge cost implications in how EMS systems work to get injured patients to the appropriate hospitals, said Craig Newgard, M.D., an associate professor of emergency medicine at OHSU who is director of the OHSU Center for Policy and Research ...
Todays prehospital care provider will be confronted with a wide variety of medical and traumatic emergencies, will need to possess a strong foundation of medical knowledge, and will be using a large armamentarium of interventions and treatments. It is with this in mind that we have prepared this book. Prehospital Care-Pearls and Pitfalls, is a unique, stimulating, and easy-to-read way, provide practical information applicable to the prehospital setting and to help the prehospital emergency care provider be prepared to manage the myriad of emergency and non-emergency situations that he or she will be called upon to assist. The past four decades have seen a remarkable evolution in the delivery of prehospital care. Where once the only therapy available for an out-of-hospital emergency medical situation was a ride to the hospital at a speed limited only by the vehicle you were in and the driving conditions at the time, now much of the interventional capability of the emergency department has been ...
Brazilian emergency medical service is locally called SAMU (Serviço de Atendimento Móvel de Urgência (Mobile Emergency Attendance Service)).[6] Emergency medicine (EM) is not a new field in Brazil. In 2002, the Ministry of Health outlined a document, the Portaria 2048, which called upon the entire health care system to improve emergency care in order to address the increasing number of victims of road traffic accidents and violence, as well as the overcrowding of emergency departments (EDs) resulting from an overwhelmed primary care infrastructure. The document delineates standards of care for staffing, equipment, medications and services appropriate for both pre-hospital and in-hospital. It further explicitly describes the areas of knowledge that an emergency provider should master in order to adequately provide care. However, these recommendations have no enforcement mechanism and, as a result, emergency services in Brazil still lack a consistent standard of care. Pre-hospital emergency ...
The findings of this study suggest that ECG abnormalities are an early manifestation of acute coronary ischemia and can be readily identified by prehospital electrocardiography. Such changes were commonly observed early (mean ∼60 to 90 min) after symptom onset in patients with acute myocardial ischemia or infarction.. During the treatment phase of the MITI prehospital trial (1), early electrocardiography did not hamper diagnosis in patients eligible for thrombolysis. In those with prehospital thrombolysis, the prehospital ECG was, as expected, more likely to be abnormal than their initial hospital ECG. Even in patients who were not allocated to receive thrombolysis until after hospital admission, the prevalence of ST segment elevation on the prehospital ECG was higher than that on the hospital ECG obtained ∼20 to 30 min later (p = 0.03) (Table 2). On the basis of serial changes, the vast majority of patients who were eligible for thrombolysis before hospital admission by clinical and ECG ...

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

The National centre for emergency primary health care has initiated an enterprise called The Watchtowers, comprising emergency primary health care districts, to provide routine information (patients way of contact, level of urgency and first action taken by the out-of-hours services) over several years based on a minimal dataset. This will enable monitoring, evaluation and comparison of the respective activities in the emergency primary health care services. The aim of this study was to assess incidence of emergency contacts (potential lifethreatening situations, red responses) to the emergency primary health care service. Methods: A representative sample of Norwegian emergency primary health care districts, The Watchtowers recorded all contacts and first action ...

Dear Sirs, We have previously expressed concerns about the validity of the clinical bottom line published alongside the popular Best BETS. (1) Best BETS should be based on specific clinical scenarios and should aim to provide a clinical bottom line which indicates, in the light of the evidence, what the clinician would do if faced with the same scenario again. (2) The report by Olaussen and Williams serves to remind us, again, that unless Best BETS are rigorously conducted their conclusions may be highly inappropriate.(3) Olaussen and Williams wonder how different intraosseous (IO) access techniques and devices compared in the pre-hospital setting. Their review of the literature to May 2010 concluded that: Traditional manual intraosseous infusion devices have better success rates and faster insertion times compared with semi-automatic intraosseous infusion devices in the prehospital setting. Evidence based medicine is the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in ...

N2 - Background: The large geographic variation in outcome after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is not well explained by traditional patient and emergency medical services (EMS) characteristics. A culture of excellence in resuscitation within an EMS is believed to be an important factor that influences quality of care and outcome in patients with OHCA. However, whether a culture of excellence is associated with improved survival after OHCA is not known. Methodology: We linked survey responses from EMS agency medical directors related to resuscitation ...
AIM: To investigate the association of temperature on arrival to hospital after out-of-hospital-cardiac arrest (OHCA) with the primary outcome of mortality, in the targeted temperature management (TTM) trial.. METHODS: The TTM trial randomized 939 patients to TTM at 33 or 36°C for 24h. Patients were categorized according to their recorded body temperature on arrival and also categorized to groups of patients being actively cooled or passively rewarmed.. RESULTS: OHCA patients having a temperature ≤34.0°C on arrival at hospital had a significantly higher mortality compared to the OHCA patients with a higher temperature on arrival. A low body temperature on arrival was associated with a longer time to return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) and duration of transport time to hospital. Patients who were actively cooled or passively rewarmed during the first 4h had similar mortality. In a multivariate logistic regression model mortality was significantly related to time from OHCA to ROSC, time ...

AU - Morales, Gabriela. AU - Quezada, Arturo. PY - 2018/7/1. Y1 - 2018/7/1. N2 - The measure of ambulance cycle time is of particular interest in the performance of Emergency Medical Systems (EMS). Its value determines the ambulance capacity of the operations system of an EMS institution. For a given number of ambulances in operation, as the value of the average ambulance cycle time increases, total ambulance capacity for the system is reduced. Additional impacts resulting from this situation are; an increase on the average ambulance response time and patients health risk due to the unavailability of ambulances; and a greater need of ambulance replacement investment requirements and operating cost. This work suggests an improvement approach based on Theory of Constraints (TOC) and elimination of waste ...
STASSEN, W and WELZEL, T. The prevalence of hypotension and hypoxaemia in blunt traumatic brain injury in the prehospital setting of Johannesburg, South Africa: A retrospective chart review. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2014, vol.104, n.6, pp.424-427. ISSN 2078-5135.. BACKGROUND: Each year, ~89 000 (180/100 000) new cases of head injury are reported in South Africa (SA), with the majority of patients being in the economically active population. Hypotension and hypoxaemia significantly increase the morbidity and mortality in patients who have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Background: Survival after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) varies between emergency medical service (EMS) systems, but the contribution of different receiving hospital (RH) characteristics to this variability is unknown.. Objectve: To examine whether survival after OHCA is related to RH characteristics.. Material and Methods: We did a prospective 4-year observational study of adult non-traumatic OHCA in an urban EMS. RH characteristics were Critical Care Level (CCL- high, middle, general), teaching status, public or private, and yearly OHCA volume. CCL was nationally categorized by their expertise of providing emergency cardiac catheterization, 24-hour emergency physicians and intensivists, post-arrest protocol, and timely thrombolysis for stroke. Other potential prognostic factors for regression analysis included age, sex, arrest witnessed, bystander CPR, initial cardiac rhythms, EMS time intervals, advanced level paramedics (ALS), and with malignancy. The primary endpoint was survival to ...

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 ...

BACKGROUND: Patient expectation survey at the Emergency Medical Services can improve patient satisfaction. A need was established to conduct such a survey in order to recommend its use as a quality improvement tool. METHODS: The study was conducted on patients visiting the Emergency Medical Services, Aga Khan University, Karachi. A questionnaire was used to collect information on the demographic profile, and expectations of patients. The ethical requirements for conducting the study were met. RESULTS: A hundred patients were surveyed. The majority was relatively young, married men and women, well educated and better socio-economically placed. The majority of the patients expected a waiting time and a consultation time of less than 30 minutes and 20 minutes, respectively. The majority of respondents expected and agreed to be examined by a trainee but there were reluctant to be examined by the students. There was an expectation that the consultant will examine patients and not advice the attending team
Background: Prehospital perimortem caesarean delivery (PCD) is a rarely performed procedure. In this study, we aimed to examine all PCDs performed by the four Helicopter Emergency Medical Services in the Netherlands; to describe the procedures, outcomes, complications, and compliance with the recommended guidelines; and to formulate recommendations. Methods: We performed a population-based retrospective cohort study of all consecutive maternal out-of-hospital cardiac arrests that underwent PCD in the prehospital setting between May 1995 and December 2019. Registered data included patient demographics, operator background, advanced life support interventions, and timelines. Resuscitation performance was evaluated according to the 2015 European Resuscitation Guidelines. Results: Seven patients underwent a prehospital PCD. Three mothers died on the scene, while four were transported to a hospital but died in the hospital. Seven neonates were born by PCD. One neonate died on the scene and six were ...

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 ...

In patients presenting with acute dyspnea in a pre-hospital setting, the early and correct diagnosis may present a significant clinical challenge. Physical examination, chest radiography, electrocardiography, and standard biological tests often fail to accurately differentiate heart failure (HF) from pulmonary causes of dyspnea. Timely differentiation of HF from other causes of dyspnea may permit the early institution of appropriate medical therapy. Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) and amino-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) have been proposed as early markers of HF and demonstrated to be useful for diagnosing and excluding HF in the emergency department. A combination of BNP or NT-proBNP testing and standard clinical assessment has been suggested to be superior to either tool used in isolation. Some previous studies have also suggested that quantitative capnometry (QC) may be useful in differentiating between cardiac and obstructive causes of respiratory distress. Therefore, the ...

Emergency medical services (EMS) personnel are an integral component of the health care framework and function to transport patients from various locations to and between care facilities. In addition to physical injury, EMS personnel are expected to be at high risk to acquire and transmit health care-associated infections (HAIs) in the workplace. However, currently, little is known about EMS biosafety risk factors and the epidemiological contribution of EMS to pathogen transmission within and outside the health care sector. Health care facility microbiomes contain diverse bacterial, fungal, and viral pathogens that cause over 1.7 million HAIs each year in the United States alone. While hospital microbiomes have been relatively well studied, there is scant information about EMS infrastructure and equipment microbiomes or the role(s) they play in HAI transmission between health care facilities. We review recent literature investigating the microbiome of ambulances and other EMS service facilities ...

Emergency medical services (EMS) play a vital role in responding to requests for assistance, triaging patients, and providing emergency medical treatment and transport for ill persons, including suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patients. However, unlike patient care in the controlled environment of a health care facility, care and transports by EMS present unique challenges because of the nature of the setting, proximity to patients in an enclosed space during transport, limited airflow, limited information about their patients, frequent need for rapid medical decision-making, and a varying range of patient acuity and jurisdictional health care resources. EMS also face significant risk of virus transmission during aerosol-generating procedures (AGPs), such as airway management and non-invasive ventilation (NIV). For example, a US study reported that EMS personnel are at a higher risk of dying from COVID-19 than other health care or emergency services professionals. The study estimated the number ...
