In this episode, Steve, Dan, and Holly talk about cardiac arrest response with the EMS coordinator at Rialto Fire, Joe Powell. After looking at Rialto Fire departments stats, Joe realized they had to do something different. At Rialto Fire, they have committed to the ‘wheel of survival’ which is a regularly evolving set of steps designed to maximize the interventions of EMS personnel with their patients who are experiencing cardiac arrest. Their stats on cardiac survivability have improved significantly since implementing this and they have multiple studies published in JEMS.
