Cardiac Arrest Is Most Likely at Race Tracks; Defibrillators Are Most Common at Schools

n the study region (urban Toronto).

Put another way, it would take just two race tracks to yield one cardiac arrest per year, while it would take 264 elementary schools to yield one cardiac arrest per year.

In addition, some other higher risk locations have relatively poor AED coverage: Hotels/motels and hostels/shelters are ranked 3rd and 4th in risk of cardiac arrest, but ranked only 23rd and 24th in location coverage.

"Location-specific estimates of cardiac arrest risk from this study may guide AED deployment in other similar urban settings," said Dr. Brooks. "A comprehensive solution to the problem of AED underuse must include strategies to optimize placement in the community. Ultimately, we need to ensure that AEDs are not only well-placed but linked to the 911 system so they can be rapidly located and used when needed."

Dr. Brooks was supported with a Jumpstart Resuscitation Scholarship from the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada for his work on this study.
