They're not situated in the hot spots where people spend most of their time," says Laurie Morrison, a professor of emergency medicine at U of T and an emergency medicine doctor at St. Michael's Hospital.
From December 2005 to July 2010, Morrison and her U of T colleagues tracked the locations of the 1,310 cardiac arrests that occurred in public locations in Toronto and their proximity to registered defibrillators.
Morrison acknowledges that defibrillator use during cardiac arrests is influenced by other factors: if more defibrillators were registered, emergency services could locate them quickly when needed; many are stored in inaccessible locations, and building staff don't know where they are; and there are no government policies or guidelines on the optimal number and placement of most defibrillators. Finally bystanders tend to be reluctant to use them. The researchers say any initiative to promote public defibrillator use should include a public awareness campaign focusing on using the device in conjunction with CPR.
Morrison and co-researchers Timothy Chan and Steven Brooks are now continuing their research by studying how placing defibrillators in areas such as chain stores, bus stops and outdoor swimming pools would further improve the chances that one will be nearby for someone in need.
Ultimately, Morrison says, a data-driven approach to placing defibrillators is what's needed to reduce the cardiac arrest death toll.

Some paramedics with advanced training - those who can give drugs and start IVs - already are allowed to stop giving CPR if their efforts fail and they have consulted a doctor, said lead researcher Dr. Laurie J. Morrison of the University of Toronto and Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.But 60 per cent of Americans and Canadians, mostly in rural areas, are served by rescue workers who only have basic skills and don't have that option, she said."Now they make no decisions whatsoever," Morrison said."They just start the resuscitation, put them in the back of the ambulance and drive."Taking such lost causes to the hospital ties up ambulances and emergency departments and the race to get there is hazardous for rescue workers and other motorists, researchers said.Morrison said her group studied the issue after she was approached by two frustrated paramedics.
