Cardiac Arrests and Highrises - a deadly combination - ALL IN ONE MEDICAL CLINIC INC.

"They all died," said Dr. Laurie Morrison, a scientist at St. Michael's Hospital and one of the study's authors.
"It doesn't matter whether you're poor, middle class or high class, it's just the vertical that makes a difference," said Morrison, who is also director of Rescu - a group that studies out-of-hospital emergency health care. "Time is life," Morrison said. Improving outcomes The study's authors suggest a few interventions that may increase survival rates in highrise buildings. Apartment and condo residents should lobby for their building to have at least one automated external defibrillator device on site, registered with EMS, and make sure security staff or even residents are trained in using it. Use of AEDs across Toronto and Peel was "pathetically low," Morrison said. The device was used just seven times during the study's five-year period. The Chase McEachern Act, established in 2007, protects anyone who attempts to use the device to save a life from civil liability highrise residents, particularly the elderly, should think about forming community check-in groups "so they provide an immediate community that saves itself," Morrison said.

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.
