Coordinating a Cardiac Arrest Response

A coordinated and practiced response to cardiac arrest is essential to improving patient outcomes. Dispatch (PSAP) services, EMS, critical access hospitals and tertiary care (PCI) facilities must all work together efficiently to be effective. A coordinated response is even more challenging when different agencies and health systems must communicate with each other using different information and communication systems to share patient information. This video shows how law enforcement, an independent hospital, two major competing hospitals, and emergency medical services can work cooperatively toward a common goal: saving a life. We are indebted to The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust for providing the funding necessary to identify and overcome these challenges. View transcript.
