Recruitment status was: Recruiting
Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest
Sudden Cardiac Death
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Ecologic or Community
Time Perspective: Retrospective
|Official Title:||The Effect of Pre-arrival Instructions on the Rate of Bystander Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) for Patients in "Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA)".|
- Incidence of bystander Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) in Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA) [ Time Frame: January, 01 2009 - December, 31 2013 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The overall goal of this study is to determine the rate of bystander Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) before and after implementation of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) pre-arrival instructions program in Milwaukee County
- Survival to hospital discharge or to December, 31 2013 whichever comes first [ Time Frame: January, 01 2009 - December, 31 2013 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Explore any relationship to age and gender of the patient, location of arrest, time of year, and other indicators known to affect survival on the overall difference in patient discharge.

Cardiac Arrest, Out of hospital
Pre-arrival Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) instruction for bystander.
The City of Milwaukee and surrounding communities combine to form Milwaukee County covering 241 square miles and serving approximately 959,521 people. Milwaukee County includes 19 separate municipalities. Community demographics and other characteristics have remained largely stable for the past decade.
The study will take place in Milwaukee County from 2009 - 2013 in the communities providing Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) pre-arrival instructions: West Allis and Oak Creek.
In Milwaukee County Basic Live Support (BLS) shall be started on all patients in cardiac arrest with the exception of victims with: decapitation; rigor mortis; evidence of tissue decomposition; dependent lividity; presence of a valid Do-Not-Resuscitate (DNR) or Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST); fire victim with full thickness burns to 90% or greater body surface area; hypothermic patients with signs of frozen tissue, rigid airway, ice formation in mouth, or chest noncompliant for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). The system standard is: Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) will be provided whenever patient is pulseless; compressions at least 100/minute; hands on chest more than 75% of time; minimum compression depth of 2 inches in adults 75% of the time.
Therefore, the investigators will analyze data to assess how Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) pre-arrival instructions may have affected the probability of receiving bystander Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
