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 ...
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 ...

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 ...
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 ...

The project was as a result of collaboration between the University of Hertfordshire, Andy Newton, Clinical Director and Consultant Paramedic of South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Trust and former Paramedic Professional Lead at UH, and Professor David Barker, Consultant Medical Adviser, Smiths Medical International.. The team identified that ambulance staff are not sufficiently trained and encouraged to use an automatic ventilator. They went on to develop training materials for a ventilation course which could be adopted within the University courses such as the Paramedic BSc or Post-Graduate Critical Care Paramedic programmes.. The course content includes theory, demonstrations and practice time with different types of automatic ventilators on simulation mannequins. The aim is to train ambulance crews to apply automatic ventilators safely and effectively, thereby increasing patient safety and the quality of care provided and reducing possible errors.. "The feedback we received about this ...

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 ...

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

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. ...

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

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

Military jeep blocks ambulance. [Balata Refugee Camp, Nablus] - Saturday morning an Israeli soldier firing from inside a military jeep shot dead seven year old Khaled Maher Walweel. When shot, Khaled was in his home near a 2nd story window. The bullet pierced the window hitting the boy in the neck. In the street below two military jeeps were making their way out of the camp under a barrage of stones.. Moments later the boys uncle was seen carrying a severely bleeding Khaled into the street, where he first held the boy up at the window of an army jeep and then walked towards a waiting ambulance.

As the ambulance approached, it too was blocked.. One jeep maneuvered behind the ambulance while the first jeep moved to block the ambulances front. Khaled was able to be slipped inside the ambulance, but the two jeeps in ...

The response time of emergency services can reach 10 or 15 minutes in many cities with heavy traffic, but thats not good enough when someone is suffering a heart attack. A student at the Netherlands Delft University of Technology has unveiled a possible solution. The ambulance drone designed by Alec Momont can fly at 60 miles per hour (100 kph) to deliver a defibrillator to a patient in mere minutes.. The ambulance drone is a hexacopter painted in emergency services yellow. It can be dispatched to a location within 4.6 square miles (12 square kilometers) in about a minute. Upon landing, anyone able to help the victim will be talked through using the attached defibrillator by an operator. The operator will also have access to a live camera feed from the drone to make sure everything is done correctly. Luckily, defibrillators are fairly easy to use.. When someone suffers a heart attack, time is of the essence. If normal cardiac rhythm can be reestablished quickly, survival and complication rates ...
A study has observed that paramedics with extended skills will be a safe and an effective alternative to standard ambulance transfer and hospital treatment for older people.
Using data from 30 years of research evidence on ambulance services around the world, Dr Matthew Booker and colleagues from Bristols Centre for Academic Primary Care carried out a systematic literature review to explore why patients with primary care sensitive problems seek help from ambulance services.. They found that, while there is evidence that the total number of calls to emergency services is increasing, they could not clearly conclude whether there is an increase in inappropriate calls because these calls had not been measured and recorded in a consistent way.. Dr Booker said: "When people call the emergency services they are usually genuinely worried. It can be difficult for the public to know exactly how urgently their medical problem needs attention.. "In many research studies, calls are labelled as inappropriate only after a clinician has made an assessment. For example, someone calling emergency services with symptoms of an infection may be very anxious and in distress when ...
Although musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and other health complaints are an occupational problem for ambulance personnel, there is a lack of knowledge regarding work-related factors associated with MSDs and other health complaints. The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate the relationships between occupational demands, individual characteristics and health-related outcomes among ambulance personnel.. A random sample of 234 female and 953 male ambulance personnel participated in a national questionnaire survey on work-related factors, and musculoskeletal and other health complaints. Physical demands was associated with activity limitation due to neck-shoulder and low-back complaints among the female personnel. Among the male personnel, physical demands was associated with low-back complaints and activity limitation due to low-back complaints. Psychological demands was significantly associated with neck-shoulder complaints, sleeping problems, headache and stomach symptoms among both ...
UPn 05/12/93 Police arrest three for hauling marijuana with patient in ambulance SAN ANTONIO, Texas (UPI) -- The dog knew something was amiss. Police said the driver of an ambulance from Laredo told officers Wednesday afternoon he was carrying a female patient to Santa Rosa Hospital in Antonio. On the seat next to him was a woman dressed as a nurse. Officers at a Border Patrol checkpoint waved the ambulance through -- but a drug-sniffing dog alerted them that something was wrong. After the vehicle, owned by Medic Ambulance Service of Laredo, pulled up to the hospital -- and after doctors determined there was nothing wrong with the "patient," -- police alerted by the Border Patrol uncovered 200 pounds of marijuana hidden in compartments that normally carry oxygen and other emergency equipment, officials said. The ambulances driver, "nurse" and "patient" were arrested and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, police said. But police said the driver did not use the ...
The passive visual warnings are usually part of the design of the vehicle, and involve the use of high contrast patterns. Older ambulances (and those in developing countries) are more likely to have their pattern painted on, whereas modern ambulances generally carry retro-reflective designs, which reflects light from car headlights or torches. Popular patterns include checker board (alternate coloured squares, sometimes called Battenburg, named after a type of cake), chevrons (arrowheads - often pointed towards the front of the vehicle if on the side, or pointing vertically upwards on the rear) or stripes along the side (these were the first type of retro-reflective device introduced, as the original reflective material, invented by 3M, only came in tape form). In addition to retro-reflective markings, some services now have the vehicles painted in a bright (sometimes fluorescent) yellow or orange for maximum visual impact, though classic white or red are also common. Fire ...

Some (but not all) hospitals have Accident and Emergency departments. These departments are open 24 hours a day. If you need immediate medical assistance (for example, because of an accident), telephone 999. The call is free including from mobile phones. An operator will ask you which emergency service you need (Fire, Police or Ambulance). For urgent medical assistance ask for the ambulance service. Be ready to tell the emergency services what has happened and exactly where you are, especially the street name.. Once you are connected to the Emergency Medical Dispatcher, she or he will ask you questions about the condition of the patient and may offer advice on what to do until the ambulance arrives. If the person is badly injured and needs to go to hospital, an ambulance will be dispatched to take the person to a hospital Accident and Emergency (A&E) department.. If you need urgent treatment, but you are well enough to travel, you should make your own way by bus or taxi to an Accident and ...
The call on our screen was from Greater Manchester Ambulance Service, and there was a lot of detail crammed into a short space.. "30yof ? mental breakdown. Has just had daughter taken away from her. ? suicidal. Sister in Manchester concerned for her safety. Sent text saying goodbye. Patients name Anna, sisters name Jenny.". A lot of the time, we get calls like this, turn up, find the patient drowning their sorrows but otherwise okay and make a reassuring call to the concerned relative. Other times, we find the house locked, with no answer at the door, call the police round with their enforcers to break it down… just at the point the patient returns from shopping. Such patients are rarely impressed.. On this occasion, however, the ambulance crew found the door wide open, and the flat empty. The ambulance crew called me on the radio to ask what they should do next. I called Jenny, the sister, to explain what wed found.. "Shes gone somewhere to kill herself!" sobbed Jenny. "Do you ...
it was more of a design flaw than anything. the clinic isnt really set up for ambulance care - they had to park across the street and go thru the crowd on the sidewalk - because the parking lot is A) tiny and B) restricted. as in, you have to have an appointment, go thru a guard area [and the entrance was too small for the ambulance to go thru - too short. theyve changed it, since, done a re-model and have an area set aside for ambulances, now - i was one of the first that it happened to, being mobbed when coming by ambulance - but i was also one of the LAST.] they get maybe 3 or 4 people in an ambulance a YEAR, but those people are fucking CRAZY. IIRC, i was the second to last straw - i didnt just have the two paramedics with me, but also the ER doc. a woman a couple months later ONLY had the paramedics, and one was a smallish woman, and said woman was knocked down and trampled [broke her arm] and the woman coming in [for a D&C, like me, NOT an actual abortion - although i almost never say ...
Public health advocates have lobbied hard in recent years to clear restaurants, bars and other workplaces of tobacco smoke, and the winds seem to be at
The key untestable assumptions for valid IV analyses are that the instrument affects the dependent variable only through the variable being instrumented for and is uncorrelated with omitted predictors of the outcome (1, 2). These assumptions are probably satisfied in our study. Although the variation across counties in the proportion of ALS ambulances is not randomized, it does appear to be idiosyncratic, driven in part by local political decisions. Thus, our IV analysis approximates a randomized trial with multiple groups that vary the proportion of ALS ambulances. One must assume that neither the severity (within diagnosis) of emergent conditions across counties (within states) leading to ambulance transport nor the quality of hospital care is associated with ALS penetration. The former assumption is plausible but untestable for 4 of the diagnoses; we control for severity in the case of trauma. The latter assumption is testable and is not rejected ...

St John Ambulance is providing emergency support to affected areas during the cold weather conditions. The nations leading first aid charity is working with the ambulance service by deploying 4x4 ambulances to hard to reach roads, particularly in the home counties, where regular ambulances are unable to get through and setting up first aid tents where they are most needed.
We serve the community 24/7. On occasions in which Ambulance 3 is committed to one emergency call and another emergency call is received, an available ambulance from a neighboring towns fire department is requested to respond to provide patient transport to a local hospital. Likewise, Ambulance 3 is occasionally requested to respond to out-of-town emergencies (reciprocal mutual aid ...
It has been my view that this cant be the relevant definition for the Road Rules because, on that basis, an ambulance responding to a heart attack victim is not responding to an emergency as they there is not a significant and co-ordinated response. That is of course arguable, even one intensive care ambulance is providing a significant response - the crew are well trained and there is much behind them to allow them to provide the response, and they are coordinated by the service that is managing competing demands, but even so it does seem a bit of a stretch to fit a single ambulance response into that definition but still we expect them to respond with lights and sirens.. Murray v McMurchy [1949] 2 DLR 442 was a Canadian case, dealing with a surgeon who was performing a caesarean section. During the procedure he observed that the patient had a tumour and further pregnancies would be life threating. He therefore permanently sterilised her. He informed her of what he had found, and done, ...

Background: Threats and violence in emergency care is a serious problem that is increasing both in Sweden and in the rest of the world. The ambulance service is an area of health care where the prevalence of threats and violence are most prominent. Ambulance staff workplace varies and therefore it can be a challenge to create a safe work environment. Purpose: The aim was that from a prehospital perspective describe what measures can be taken to prevent threats and violence in emergency care. Method: A literature review with systematic search and descriptive design was used. The search resulted in 14 articles from three databases. In the analysis, the authors made use of qualitative content analysis. Results: The result describes the importance of being able to identify risks, to use preventive strategies and to optimize the conditions in order to prevent threats and violence. Identifying the risks involved in order to identify risk behaviours, risk patients, vulnerable groups of staff, critical ...
NEED STATEMENT Poor health care for poor Philadelphians gets poorer. Federal, state and local subsidy for Philadelphias 200,000 un-insured declines as need increases. Our States Medicaid waiting list is 350,000. Our Citys ten free clinics are understaffed and underfunded, with three-month waiting lists. Medical centers are closing. Emergency room diversions are more frequent. Ambulance response time drags. Families who choose between heating and eating become ill and contagious. Food pantries run short. 60,000 children here are chronically hungry. Gas shut-off rates are increasing. An estimated 450 Philadelphians die yearly from lack of health insurance. These Philadelphians, and millions of Americans, cannot wait for the success of a century-old campaign for universal coverage. To survive, they need to take control. They need to build and manage their health system. They need to own rather than depend. The Patch Adams Free Clinic is reviving the American traditions of mutual aid. RETURN TO ...
A week ago, you may well have noticed some rather small scale rioting going on Londons financial districts. Had you been anywhere near the London Ambulance Control room, you might have also noticed some small scale panicking coming from the East Central Allocator (me) too. The area of the protests was slap bang in the middle of the area I cover, and if it all kicked off, it was going to be a very busy day.. When a major incident occurs, we open up another, smaller, control room (known as ICR - Incident Control Room) next to the main control room. It has its own allocators, radio operators, etc. Any call related to the incident is transferred out there. Because we had prior knowledge that the G20 protests were happening, the room was already set up and ready to go, with the computer system automatically transferring any calls within the relevant areas to ICR. Control staff and ambulance crews were in on overtime to cover it. The ambulances had special callsigns starting with a V to distinguish ...
Factors such as medical cost, ambulance response time and the lack of awareness on the need for immediate hospital care influences whether they call 911 immediately.
Arkansas largest ambulance service has doubled the percentage of patients it revives from cardiac arrest since altering its treatment protocol in November. Metropolitan Emergency Medical Services (MEMS) of Little Rock said that performing uninterrupted CPR on the scene has returned cardiac activity to almost 33 percent of patients. That figure hovered around 15 percent before the new guidelines took effect Nov. 23.. The agency, which responds to more than 700 cardiac arrest calls per year, is among many in the country that now favor extended CPR at the scene instead of quick transport. Ambulance services in Maine, Arizona and Washington state have seen similar increases in the number of revived patients, according to the Journal of Emergency Medical Services.. Cardiologist Dr. Doug Holloway, with the Baptist Health Heart Institute, agrees that the new protocol is showing positive results.. ...

Emily was playing with her playmobil this morning, the rescue helicopter and hospital set, what a fiasco though! First the helicopter landed on the casualty, then the ambulance turned up with another patient on board who just got thrown out and then Ambulance had no crew so had to go back to hospital to fetch them and no one bothered to look at the casualty! Then the hospital ran out of beds and people were having to lie on the floor!! They only had one bed and a baby incubator that doubled up as an xray machine. A baby got sent home and left in an empty house, the ambulance knocked someone over! But then people got taken by ambulance for check ups! The next thing the hospital was closed and a vets opened up and treated a hedgehog that had been knocked down and hurt its nose, it had to stay in for 3 months because it had a temperature, I wont tell you where she took its temperature! Well they call it imaginative play, but it all seemed a bit realistic to me!! ...
The aim of the steering group is to improve survival from OHCA by strengthening the Chain of Survival across Ireland. National and international evidence and experience will be assessed for applicability in an Irish setting. A framework will be developed whereby members/members organisations can present ideas and proposals for improvement, for each link of the Chain of Survival. An important objective of the Group will be to ensure that the impact of the Strategy can be monitored through effective and accurate data recording and data reporting. The most important challenge for the Group will be to make sure that the recommendations of the Strategy are implemented. This is why the Strategy will include an implementation plan with planned activities, timelines and responsibilities. There are currently examples of excellent resuscitation practice across our nation. The group will review these practices with the view to national implementation, with the ultimate aim of improving OHCA survival ...

Published: 24 Aug 2011. The survival rate of patients brought to St Georges Hospital having suffered a cardiac arrest is in the top two in London, according to statistics published by London Ambulance Service in August.. The annual study examines survival rates across the capital and found that between August 2010 and July 2011 the survival rate of patients brought to St Georges Hospital was 15.4 per cent (16/104). This is the second year running that the hospital has been in the top two out of more than 30 hospitals included in the report.. Paula McLean, resuscitation service manager, said: "These statistics are encouraging and demonstrate that the service provided at St Georges is among the best anywhere. The figures represent patients who have suffered a cardiac arrest outside of hospital - at home or at work, for instance - so their hearts stopped beating prior to getting into hospital, which is very serious.. "The survival rate at St Georges is the result of complex teamwork between ...

The first baby known to be born on a motorway hard-shoulder in the East of England sparked a major "incident" after her arrival on the M11 near Cambridge.. Mother Caroline Dethridge of Cottenham had just given birth to 7lb 4oz Rosie when traffic officers Rob Clarke and Karl Hensel leapt into action.. After alerting the Eastern Regional Control Centre, and ensuring the ambulance service knew their precise location, they set up emergency cones and arrows to protect the scene.. And when the ambulance arrived, they made sure paramedics could lift the family into the ambulance in safety.. Proud father Steven Dethridge said: "The Traffic Officers were brilliant. The baby came so quickly, she was already on the back seat by the time I pulled over.". Jane Kelly, duty operational manager said: "The M11 hard-shoulder is not the best maternity hospital, but we were all thrilled to hear the baby arrived safely. Our whole team came into the control room to find out the latest. It brightened up our ...

I told her about the healing at the store and asked if I could pray for her. She was delighted. She had limited range of motion in her left knee with severe pain when she flexed the joint. I had her relax and placed my hand on her knee and commanded it to be healed. I asked if she felt anything. She said it felt very warm. I didnt have to ask her to flex the knee, she did and her jaw dropped open. All she could say was "how did you do that?" She had full range of motion with no pain. She grabbed my hands and thanked me repeatedly. After a short celebration in the back of the rig, I asked about her back. She told me about the chronic back pain and that she used to be 4 inches taller than she is now. I asked if I could pray and she agreed, so I placed my hand on her back and commanded it to be healed. She felt heat going down her back. She was on the way to having that healed, too. She talked about the goodness of God all the way to the hospital ...
