I would like to start with a few questions in general about out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Heart disease is the primary cause of death in the US and Hasselqvist-Ax et al. in the Early CPR paper note that annually, there are approximately 420,000 cases in the US and 275,000 cases in Europe of OHCA. This is a huge problem spanning multiple disciplines, including Emergency Medicine, Cardiology, Neurology, Public Health, and Emergency Medical Services. There is significant room for improvement in identifying and treating cases of OHCA with the goal to decrease the time to treatment, with CPR and defibrillation. How do you encounter this problem in your line of work? What are some of the biggest challenges or pain points we face with improving outcomes in OHCA?
