  • Community first responders for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in adults and children. [Review]
  • CDCochrane Database Syst Rev 2019 Jul 19; 7:CD012764
  • Barry T, Doheny MC, … Bury G
  • CONCLUSIONS: Moderate-certainty evidence shows that context-specific CFR interventions result in increased rates of CPR or defibrillation performed before EMS arrival. It remains uncertain whether this can translate to significantly increased rates of overall patient survival. When possible, further high-quality RCTs that are adequately powered to measure changes in survival should be conducted.The included studies did not consider survival with good neurological function. This outcome is likely to be important to patients and should be included routinely wherever survival is measured.We identified one ongoing study and one planned trial whose results once available may change the results of this review. As this review was limited to randomized and quasi-randomized trials, we may have missed some important data from other study types.
  • Epidemiology of Prehospital Care at the San Diego (USA) - Tijuana (Mexico) International Border Crossing. [Journal Article]
  • PEPrehosp Emerg Care 2019 Jul 05; :1-7
  • Farah J, Goebel M, … Donofrio JJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: This was the first study of PHP assessment and care at the San Diego-Tijuana border crossings. We found a large diversity in patient ages. Respiratory distress and blunt trauma were the most frequent complaints and oxygen was the most frequent treatment. The busiest day of the week was Sunday, and the busiest month of the year was July. Our newly described findings may assist EMS agencies with optimizing staff, equipment, and training at international border crossings.
  • Association of Ambulance Use in New York City With the Implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. [Journal Article]
  • JNJAMA Netw Open 2019 Jun 05; 2(6):e196419
  • Courtemanche C, Friedson AI, Rees DI
  • CONCLUSIONS: There was a significant increase in use of ambulance transport for minor injuries in NYC after the ACA insurance expansion, suggesting that the change in health insurance structure was associated with increased use of emergency medical services in nonemergent situations. Future reforms to the US health insurance system should take into account the potential for increased use of emergency medical services in nonemergent situations, which the literature suggests may lead to congestion and slower response times.
