AIMS Evaluation of school pupils' resuscitation performance after different types of training relative to the effects of training frequency (annually vs. biannually), starting age (10 vs. 13 years) and facilitator (emergency physician vs. teacher). METHODS Prospective longitudinal study investigating 433 pupils in training and control groups. Outcome(More)
Demografische Entwicklungen und ein verändertes Inanspruchnahmeverhalten der Bevölkerung tragen zu stetig steigenden Notarzteinsätzen bei. In der vorliegenden Untersuchung wurde das unterschiedliche Inanspruchnahmeverhalten in Abhängigkeit vom Sozialstatus analysiert und die Veränderung der Patientenaltersstruktur als weitere Einflussgröße überprüft.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Quick initiation of basic life support (BLS) by laypersons is one of the most successful strategies in the fight against sudden cardiac death. In developed countries, cardiac arrest is still a major contributor to avoidable death, and despite the fact that more than 50% of all cardiac arrests are witnessed, layperson BLS is performed in(More)
AIMS Chest compression quality is a determinant of survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). ERC 2005 guidelines recommend the use of technical devices to support rescuers giving compressions. This prospective randomized study reviewed influence of different feedback configurations on survival and compression quality. MATERIALS AND METHODS 312(More)
Sudden cardiac arrest is a major contributor to avoidable deaths in Europe. Immediate initiation of basic life support (BLS) by lay bystanders is among the most successful strategies in its treatment. Despite the fact that more than half of all cardiac arrests are witnessed in a number of European countries, layperson resuscitation is initiated in only(More)
INTRODUCTION Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the most frequent causes of death in the world. In highly qualified emergency medical service (EMS) systems, including well trained emergency physicians, spontaneous circulation may be restored in up to 53% of patients at least until admission to hospital. Compared with these highly qualified EMS systems, in(More)
Medikamentenverwechslungen in der Akutmedizin sind häufig und potenziell tödlich. Dies rechtfertigt Investitionen in Patientensicherheit. Unser Ziel war die Entwicklung und Einführung einer auf die Bedürfnisse des Rettungsdienstes zugeschnittenen Vorhaltung von Spritzenaufklebern nach DIVI/ISO 26825. Befragungen von Rettungsfachleuten ergaben den Rahmen für(More)
Fischer et al. have recently published a training manikin study ith the conclusion that AED feedback led to insufficient compresion depth.1 The manikin used in this study, while an excellent tool for PR training, is not a calibrated measurement tool. Instead, the etermination of chest compression depth via accelerometer (AED eedback) is a validated(More)
Even in the 21st century major trauma still contributes to a svere loss of life in our society. Severly injured victims benefit from prehospital care that both considers tactical and medical aims. Knowledge of major trauma care has grown over the past years. The 2011 german guidelines on multiple- and severe trauma care set a milestone for better treatment(More)
Die Rettungsleitstelle hat die Aufgabe, bei medizinischen Notfällen ein geeignetes Rettungsmittel zu disponieren. Hierbei muss aus den Angaben des Anrufers eine Verdachtsdiagnose formuliert und das geeignete Rettungsmittel entsendet werden. Am Beispiel des akuten Schlaganfalls wurde für einen Zeitraum von 11 Monaten untersucht, inwieweit die Implementierung(More)
