2021 SAEMF Research Large Project Grant - $150,000
"Resuscitation Culture of EMS Systems for Out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrest”
The overarching goal of this SAEMF Research Large Project Grant is to identify and measure prehospital resuscitation culture that contributes to variations in survival and functional outcome after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) across emergency medical services (EMS) agencies in the United States. OHCA is a major public health problem worldwide, annually affecting over 356,000 Americans with substantial regional variation in survival and functional recovery.
