Defibrillation performed by the emergency medical technician.


Eisenberg MS, Cummins RO.
PMID: 3779936
Circulation. 1986 Dec;74(6):IV9-12.

As a means of providing defibrillation as soon as possible for those suffering out-of-hospital ventricular fibrillation, numerous communities have trained and authorized emergency medical technicians (EMTs) to provide defibrillatory shocks (EMT-D). The findings of four controlled studies and the...

Reporting and treating gonorrhea: results of a statewide survey in Alaska.

Journal of the American Venereal Disease Association

Eisenberg MS, Wiesner PJ.
PMID: 1010773
J Am Vener Dis Assoc. 1976 Dec;3(2):79-83.

Two hundred physicians, public health nurses, medics, and physician's assistants, comprising 92% of health care providers treating gonorrhea in Alaska, were interviewed to determine the number of cases seen during a 12-month period and to determine the adequacy of...

Cardiac arrest and resuscitation: a tale of 29 cities.

Annals of emergency medicine

Eisenberg MS, Horwood BT, Cummins RO, Reynolds-Haertle R, Hearne TR.
PMID: 2301797
Ann Emerg Med. 1990 Feb;19(2):179-86. doi: 10.1016/s0196-0644(05)81805-0.

Published reports of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest give widely varying results. The variation in survival rates within each type of system is due, in part, to variation in definitions. To determine other reasons for differences in survival rates, we reviewed...

Incidence of agonal respirations in sudden cardiac arrest.

Annals of emergency medicine

Clark JJ, Larsen MP, Culley LL, Graves JR, Eisenberg MS.
PMID: 1443844
Ann Emerg Med. 1992 Dec;21(12):1464-7. doi: 10.1016/s0196-0644(05)80062-9.

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To discover the frequency of agonal respirations in cardiac arrest calls, the ways callers describe them, and discharge rates associated with agonal respirations.DESIGN: We reviewed taped recordings of calls reporting cardiac arrests and emergency medical technician and...

Dispatcher-assisted telephone CPR: common delays and time standards for delivery.

Annals of emergency medicine

Culley LL, Clark JJ, Eisenberg MS, Larsen MP.
PMID: 2003662
Ann Emerg Med. 1991 Apr;20(4):362-6. doi: 10.1016/s0196-0644(05)81655-5.

STUDY OBJECTIVES: To determine the rate of bystander CPR before and after implementation of a telephone CPR program in King County; to determine the reasons for dispatcher delays in identifying patients in cardiac arrest in delivering CPR instructions over...

Cardiac resuscitation in the community. Importance of rapid provision and implications for program planning.


Eisenberg MS, Bergner L, Hallstrom A.
PMID: 430772
JAMA. 1979 May 04;241(18):1905-7. doi: 10.1001/jama.241.18.1905.

Several time-related variables involving resuscitation from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest were studied. Short time intervals from collapse to initiation of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and to provision of definitive care were significantly associated with survival from cardiac arrest. The two times...

The epidemiology of cardiac arrest in young adults.

Annals of emergency medicine

Safranek DJ, Eisenberg MS, Larsen MP.
PMID: 1514721
Ann Emerg Med. 1992 Sep;21(9):1102-6. doi: 10.1016/s0196-0644(05)80651-1.

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To describe the epidemiology of cardiac arrest in young adults and to determine if there are characteristics unique to this group in terms of etiology, rhythm, and outcome.DESIGN: Retrospective, case review.SETTING: King County, Washington.TYPE OF PARTICIPANTS: All...

A community survey of the potential use of thrombolytic agents for acute myocardial infarction.

Annals of emergency medicine

Eisenberg MS, Ho MT, Schaeffer S, Litwin P, Larsen MP, Hallstrom AP, Weaver DW.
PMID: 2757280
Ann Emerg Med. 1989 Aug;18(8):838-41. doi: 10.1016/s0196-0644(89)80207-0.

We surveyed all patients admitted to nine community hospital coronary care units to determine what proportion could be candidates for thrombolytic therapy. During the 12-month study period, there were 4,115 admissions for possible acute myocardial infarction, and 1,076 (26%)...

Enantiomers of phenylpropanolamine suppress food intake in hyperphagic rats.

Pharmacology, biochemistry, and behavior

Eisenberg MS, Maher TJ.
PMID: 2189144
Pharmacol Biochem Behav. 1990 Apr;35(4):865-9. doi: 10.1016/0091-3057(90)90372-o.

Phenylpropanolamine (PPA, d,l-norephedrine), available in many over-the-counter nasal decongestants and appetite suppressants, is a racemic mixture of the enantiomers d- and l-norephedrine. The present study evaluates the effects of the individual PPA enantiomers on a variety of nondrug (food...

Automatic external defibrillation: evaluations of its role in the home and in emergency medical services.

Annals of emergency medicine

Cummins RO, Eisenberg MS, Bergner L, Hallstrom A, Hearne T, Murray JA.
PMID: 6476545
Ann Emerg Med. 1984 Sep;13(9):798-801. doi: 10.1016/s0196-0644(84)80441-2.

Many recent efforts to improve emergency medical services (EMS) and increase survival rates are simply efforts to get defibrillation to patients as rapidly as possible. In the 1960s physicians traveled in mobile coronary care units to bring the defibrillator...
