Trauma and nontrauma cardiopulmonary arrest: a national survey

, : Trauma and nontrauma cardiopulmonary arrest: a national survey. Air Medical Journal 14(2): 61-64

This survey attempts to identify the current standard of care for the air medical transport of the patient in cardiopulmonary arrest. An Association of Air Medical Services/National Flight Nurses Association-approved survey by a single mailing with an anonymous response. All rotor-craft programs with current memberships in AAMS. Fifty-three of the 178 questionnaires mailed were returned. Program demographics, crew composition and transport volumes were typical of other reported national experiences. The majority of programs (84%) had standing operational protocols for trauma and non-trauma cardiopulmonary arrests. The indications for not initiating or discontinuing CPR, the transport of the patient in cardiopulmonary arrest, triage and financial considerations varied widely between air medical programs. This study provides some insight on the current air medical management of the patient in cardiopulmonary arrest. National practice guidelines should be developed and tested prospectively in future studies.
