ABSTRACT

This study verified the “golden time” in cardiac arrests, one of the 55 disaster types identified by Seoul. 4,055 cases from the rescue and EMS data maintained by Seoul Metropolitan Fire & Disaster Headquarters (2010~2012) were used to verify the effectiveness of CPR performed by paramedics within 4 minutes. A regression analysis was conducted for each of the 8 response time sections and the post-verification was carried out through SUEST (Seemingly Unrelated Estimation). The average arrival time was found to be 5.7 minutes and the response time appeared to improve gradually. The analysis of the relationship between response time and the effectiveness of first aid showed that “within 4 minutes” is the most appropriate golden time for treatment of cardiac arrests. This study has great implications for the field of rescue and EMS as it made the first attempt to confirm a statistical significance of “within 4 minutes” as the golden time in cardiac arrests.
