ABSTRACT

This research analyzed the effects on Recovery of Spontaneous Circulation of 222 cardiac arrest patients transported to hospital that can be defibrillated from January 1st 2010 to December 31st 2011. The results are as followed. Males accounted for majority, numbering 162 (73.0%) and females accounted for 60 (27.0%) out of cardiac arrest patients. As for the age, patients of age between 50~59 were the highest with 54 cases (24.3%). Patients below 29 had lowest frequency with 4 cases (1.8%). The effect on spontaneous circulation recovery before hospitalizing showed more significant difference the shorter the response time and site arrival time were from the 119 emergency call, and there also was significant difference on spontaneous circulation recovery when the 119 emergency team arrived the site within 3 minutes than 4 minutes. Among the first-aids performed by the 119 emergency team, frequency of advanced cardiac life support was low and out of this, securing vein showed significant difference in spontaneous circulation recovery. Through this study, in order to raise the spontaneous circulation recovery of cardiac arrest patients before hospitalizing who can be defibrillated, witness’ resuscitation should be performed on site and rapid defibrillation should be applied be shortening response time and site arrival time of 119 emergency team.
