EAAA publish first medical paper on cardiac arrest outcomes

29 July 2019

We were delighted when the Emergency Medical Journal published a research paper written in March 2019 alongside our colleagues at the Ambulance Trust, entitled; “Prehospital determinants of successful resuscitation after traumatic and nontraumatic out-of-hospital cardiac arrest”

Authors Dr Ed Barnard, Daniel Sandbach, Tracy Nicholls, Alastair Wilson and Dr Ari Ercole reviewed data gathered between the 1 January 2016 and 31 July 2017 to review the outcomes of over 9,000 patients who had suffered an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Reported survival rates in countries with comparable healthcare systems are higher than the UK and the EAAA team hoped that by reviewing two areas in particular (survival to hospital admission and hospital discharge) it might help us and the Ambulance trust save more lives.
