AMBULANCE QUALITY INDICATORS
Why were those complaints chosen?
What does ‘STEMI’, ‘ROSC’ and ‘Utstein’ mean?
How is the NEAS performing?

Quality of Care/Outcomes
All three complaints are life threatening, require treatment as soon as possible and have registries planned to report on patient outcomes in the near future…
2. A Sub-Group
1. The Whole Group
Patient has received CPR following Cardiac Arrest
Patient regains a heart beat on scene
Patient is transported to hospital and retains a ROSC at hospital doors
ROSC on arrival at hospital
ROSC on arrival at hospital = X
Patient is alive according to NHS Spine
Hospital can verify that patient was discharged
Survival to Discharge nominator
* Survival Rate is as a proportion of total cardiac arrest sample, e.g. if 5 patients survive out of a total of 100 patients, rate = 5%
Measures the time it takes from the 999 call to the arrival at a specialist stroke centre so that they can be rapidly assessed for treatment called thrombolysis.
Measures the time it takes from the 999 call to the patient receiving angioplasty at a PPCI Centre. Data extracted from MINAP.
STEMI is an acronym meaning 'ST segment elevation myocardial infarction', which is a type of heart attack
“A Care Bundle is a group of interventions related to a condition that, when delivered together, result in better outcomes than when implemented individually.”
