Abstract

Katherine Pemberton studied adults who suffered out-of-hospital cardiac arrest over a 13-year period in Queensland and investigated survival. She identified some important population subsets at risk of reduced survival and identified factors to predict increased survival. Her work will be used by Ambulance Services to inform ways to improve resuscitation practices and policy.
