Abstract

During the period 1.2.1988-31.1.1989, a prospective investigation was undertaken of the intensive prehospital treatment in Odense. Comparison was undertaken between a medically staffed ambulance (2 months), a motorized doctor (rendez-vous, model 4 months) and the heart ambulance (recommended by the Danish National Board of Health (6 months]. Out of 28 patients brought in by the medically staffed ambulance, two (7%) were discharged alive. Out of 57 patients brought in the phase with the motorized doctor nine (16%) were discharged alive. Out of 78 patients brought in by heart ambulance one (1%) was discharged alive. The results of this investigation reveal that the prehospital treatment of cardiac arrest in Odense can be improved by participation of a doctor in the treatment, (particularly the rendezvous model). Suggested improvements consist of 1) improved alarm system, 2) intensification of training laymen in treatment of cardiac arrest and 3) increased information to the population.
