Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Problem of sudden cardiac death

Among major causes of cardiac mortality cardiac arrest stands as a cause of death that rivals all other causes in terms of frequency. There has been at best only modest improvement in resuscitation over recent years. No wonder with so little NHLBI funding going into this cause compared to acute MI and heart failure. Hopefully the IOM report on cardiac resuscition will be a call to action that will highlight these NIHBI ...more »

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Pulseless Electrical Activity (PEA) - replacing VF/VT

As VF/VT rates continue to decrease in cardiac arrest to levels below 25%, the importance of understanding the pathways and epidemiology of PEA gains public health importance. Additionally, there is a need to determine the co-morbidities and/or pharmacologic agents that contribute to the causation of this rhythm.

Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC :

Greater understanding of PEA would lead to better treatment (good CPR only treatment currently) and higher survival rate in CA

Feasibility and challenges of addressing this CQ or CC :

How will be treat the majority of cardiac arrest when it becomes PEA?

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Reducing Variability in Outcomes from Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest

Out of hospital cardiac arrest remains a major cause of mortality in the United States and there is a large variability in survival within communities. We need to better understand the reasons for this variability which include patient, event, EMS system and care processes and work as a nation to reduce the variability but adopting best practices and actively addressing the barriers to change which can be social, cultural, ...more »

Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC :

If we could reduce variability, we would save more lives and also enhance the chain of survival in our communities

Feasibility and challenges of addressing this CQ or CC :

will require that we connect multiple parts of the community including the population at risk, public health services and the health care system which is not always easy in silo systems or fragmented health care systems
