Paramedic Medical Director's Update
 

Regional Council received an update from Dr. Cheskes, Medical Director, Sunnybrook Osler Centre for Pre-Hospital Care. Dr. Cheskes outlined a number of innovations taking place with Emergency Medical Services (EMS) in the Region of Peel. With respect to improving cardiac arrest survival rates, the Region partnered with the Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium (ROC) to develop a large multi-centre trial focussed on improving the survival rates for people requiring cardiac arrest and trauma care. The Region of Peel was the first municipality in North America to enrol in the ROC Primed study and the first to use the Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) feedback as standard operating procedure. The research consortium has provided both fire and EMS with the most up-to-date defibrillators available; as a result, the median survival rate for people suffering cardiac arrest in the Region of Peel is 25 per cent compared to the North American median survival rate of 15 per cent.
