NC EMS Cardiac Arrest Care ToolKit - $150,000

Sponsored by Duke Endowment, led by Charles Cairns, MD

The goal of this grant is to improve the outcome of patients who are at risk for or experience an out of hospital cardiac arrest. The use of 12 lead ECG and waveform capnography devices has been shown to improve patient monitoring, resuscitation, and the rapid identification of patients who would benefit from a hospital with specific post cardiac arrest, ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), or intensive care capabilities.
