Sudden Cardiac Arrest, Defibrillation, Data Analysis


The development of assistance proceedings in an extra hospital scenario can be obtained through a critical analysis of Emergency Medical Services (EMS). We describe a service able to join the management and the analysis of EMS. In particular, we have considered first aids where the patient is in a critical situation as it is Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA): in those situations time aspect takes up a leading role. At present the main purpose of our system is to indicate the improving elements of such essential services by analysing data and generating a final statistical documentation about aids times and procedures.
