Day 4: Great questions, Steven. I hope to see some responses to these over the weekend and encourage more questions from all! I'd like to ask a spin-off from your adverse events question: What are ways that you could envision programs integrating mobile dispatch technology, EMS dispatch, and AED locations going wrong? The mobile dispatch paper stated that there were no major adverse events reported. However, one could imagine rogue responders driving recklessly through the streets causing more harm than good trying to get to the scene of a reported OHCA (this was an actual concern posed by Boston EMS dispatch). Or one could imagine that with enough responders, one might see a bystander effect or bystander apathy where the probability of help is inversely related to the number of bystanders. I experienced that in internship when all interns would rush to code blues leading to delay in figuring out who would do what and who would run the code compared to designated code teams.
