b'16100% of patients were successfully cannulated, with no identified safety issues; and Of the 58 patients treated, 43% were discharged from the hospital with either a return to normal daily living or with minimal disruption to their daily life. The MMRC mobile ECMO program relaunched in September 2020, following disruptions caused by COVID-19. Since then, the MMRC SUV response team has continued to serve cardiac arrest patients and expand the number of centers where cannulation services are provided. They are looking forward to the launch of the first truck in the late spring.We are so appreciative of the support of the Helmsley Charitable Trust that allows us to participate in this incredible and innovative work and we look forward toMinnesota Mobile Resuscitation Consortium team doing a test continuing to use CARES data to monitor the impact of thisrun with a manikin. collaborative effort says Dr. Demetris Yannopoulos, Director of the Center of Resuscitation Medicine and a Professor in the Medical School. CARES Telecommunicator CPR for Hearts in Texas By Micah Panczyk, Texas CARES State Coordinator Telecommunicator CPR (T-CPR), or Dispatch-Assisted CPR, has been linked to improved patient outcomes across the world and is extremely cost-effective, requiring almost no capital expense. The value in lives saved cannot be overstated. A three-stage process where telecommunicators identify potential out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA), provide pre-arrival CPR instructions, and coach callers to perform continuous CPR until professional rescuers assume care, T-CPR produces forward blood flow and can prolong ventricular fibrillation, increasing the likelihood first responders are able to shock the heart back into a normal rhythm.Optimal T-CPR, however, can only be achieved when 9-1-1 agencies measure the care they provide. In the words of the British mathematician Lord Kelvin, If you cannot measure it, you cannot improve it. The CARES dispatch data collection module is a means to this end. The module allows 9-1-1 centers dispatching for CARES EMS agencies to extract key data points from OHCA audio recordings and to benchmark performance against the American Heart Association T-CPR Performance Standards. For any given event, users can track whether telecommunicators recognize OHCA and whether bystanders start chest compressions. Users can also track the time from call receipt to recognition and to first chest compression, in addition to documenting common barriers to T-CPR (e.g., a caller is not with the patient, or is unable to get the patient from a bed to 9-1-1 telecommunicators can have a profound impact onthe floor for CPR).patient outcomes after OHCA.Our service strongly believes in clinical excellence, said Dr. Veer Vithalani, Chief Medical Officer at MedStar Mobile Healthcare in Fort Worth, Texas. We use the CARES Dispatch Module because the only way to know how you are performing is to measure and improve. The T-CPR module allows us to collect objective data on our performance for our first contact with potential cardiac arrest patients.The module anchors MedStars integrated T-CPR quality-improvement program. In addition to monthly and quarterly reports that document aggregate process measures, telecommunicators receive retrospective review of individual calls where care was superior or could be improved. We get individual feedback to staff members within a week, said Lindy Curtis, the agencys T-CPR audit supervisor. They love getting feedback that quicklythey remember the call and can really reconnect with it. Its a great learning opportunity.'
