Out-of-Hospital Resuscitation in Winterthur - an Outcome Study

2015-12-10 02:38:21 | BioPortfolio


The investigators will retrospectively examine all patients with out-of-hospital resuscitation by the emergency medical Team (EMT) from the Kantonsspital Winterthur in the year 2013 with a one year follow-up and a structured interview about Quality of life. Furthermore, the costs generated by the local health system are analysed.


The Primary objective of this study is to evaluate the Quality of out-of-Hospital resuscitation by the ambulance Service from the Kantonsspital Winterthur including a 1-year follow-up of the survivors. In this follow-up we evaluate the Quality of life by a validated questionnaire.

The following endpoints will be retrospectively analysed:

time-to-Response Interval; Initial cardiac rhythm; medications given; number of Defibrillations; return of spontaneous circulation, Overall costs for the local health System

Furthermore length of hospital-stay, survival until Hospital discharge, one-year survival, Quality of life one year after resuscitation and total costs will be analysed.

A directed conversation aimed at eliciting information for psychiatric diagnosis, evaluation, treatment planning, etc. The interview may be conducted by a social worker or psychologist.

The expenses incurred by a hospital in providing care. The hospital costs attributed to a particular patient care episode include the direct costs plus an appropriate proportion of the overhead for administration, personnel, building maintenance, equipment, etc. Hospital costs are one of the factors which determine HOSPITAL CHARGES (the price the hospital sets for its services).

The artificial substitution of heart and lung action as indicated for HEART ARREST resulting from electric shock, DROWNING, respiratory arrest, or other causes. The two major components of cardiopulmonary resuscitation are artificial ventilation (RESPIRATION, ARTIFICIAL) and closed-chest CARDIAC MASSAGE.

The prices a hospital sets for its services. HOSPITAL COSTS (the direct and indirect expenses incurred by the hospital in providing the services) are one factor in the determination of hospital charges. Other factors may include, for example, profits, competition, and the necessity of recouping the costs of uncompensated care.

A cardiac arrhythmia that is caused by interaction of two independently initiated cardiac impulses of different rates from two separate foci. Generally one focus is the SINOATRIAL NODE, the normal pacemaker. The ectopic focus is usually in the HEART VENTRICLE but can be in the HEART ATRIUM or the ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE. Modulation of the parasystolic rhythm by the sinus rhythm depends on the completeness of entrance block surrounding the parasystolic focus.
