EMS State of the Science 2012
Important advances in prehospital cardiac care & resuscitationEMS State of the Science is an editorial supplement, developed in cooperation with the U.S. Metropolitan Municipalities EMS Medical Directors Consortium and our sponsors, that features articles that address key resuscitation issues.It is sponsored by Advanced Circulatory Systems Inc.; American Heart Association; Laerdal Medical; Medtronic Foundation, Physio-Control, Inc.; Vidacare Corporation; and ZOLL Medical Corporation and published by Elsevier Public Safety.
IntroductionThis EMS State of the Science supplement features articles that address key resuscitation issues.
Trends & Changes in Cardiac CareNew recommendations and studies are showing areas where EMS can make a major impact on its ability to improve resuscitation outcomes.
Study Determines Optimal Chest Compression RateEMS providers have long been told to “push hard, push fast.” But how fast? Dr. Ahamed Idris details a study that attempted to find the ideal rate for chest compressions.
The Merits of Mechanical CPRMechanical CPR devices hold promise for providing greater compression consistency and possibly better resuscitation outcomes.
HeartRescue Project partners plan to develop and expand SCA response systems by coordinating measurement, education, training and the application of evidence-based best practices.
Research is proving that CPR compression depth is just as important as rates. Some devices that provide feedback about compression depth are inaccurate during certain conditions. A new technology from Physio-Control could alleviate this problem.
Intraosseous vascular access has been proven to reduce core body temperature.
Pennsylvania has joined with five other states and AMR to improve SCA survival rates.

Controlling compressible hemorrhage is the highest medical priority for improving survival in trauma cases. Now there is a new, simple and effective tool that will transform the way bleeding, particularly difficult-to-control bleeding, is managed in the field: the iTClamp50.
