Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To identify potentially preventable prehospital deaths following traumatic cardiac arrest. METHODS: Deaths following prehospital traumatic cardiac arrest during 2003 were reviewed in the state of Victoria, Australia. Possible survival with optimal bystander first-aid and shorter ambulance response times were identified. Injury Severity Scores (ISS) were calculated. Victims with an ISS 10 min might have contributed to five deaths with an ISS
