Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium (ROC) Data Coordinating Center

The aims of this project are 1) to develop and implement a clinical trials consortium to simultaneously study patients with OOH-CA and LTI by providing collaboration, coordination, administration, and support to regional clinical centers, sponsors, and oversight bodies; 2) to develop and implement procedures to rapidly design and implement a series of high-quality randomized trials that have optimal internal and external validity; and 3) to rapidly disseminate the methods and the results of these trials to the research and clinical practice community so as to improve resuscitation outcomes.

Pragmatic Airway Resuscitation Trial

The aim of this study is to plan and conduct a pragmatic trial of endotracheal intubation versus supraglottic airway in patients with out of hospital cardiac arrest.

Simulation Training to Improve Trauma Care

The aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of simulation-based trauma team leadership training on trauma patient care and patient outcomes. Trauma is a major public health burden; it is the fifth most common cause of mortality overall in the US and accounts for the majority of deaths in patients younger than 45. Most trauma resuscitation-related errors are directly related to teamwork failures. Find more information.

Randomized Trial of Nitrite for Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest

The aim of this trial is to assess the safety and efficacy of Na nitrite in patients with cardiac arrest.

Dynamic AED Registry

The goals of this study are to provide reliable, valid, and sustainable post-market surveillance of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) using unique device identifiers and to provide a framework for prospective embedded studies of AED effectiveness.

Patient Health and Resuscitation Surveillance Network

The PHAROS Network is an ongoing public health surveillance and quality improvement program that is focused on guiding providers by using wireless vital sign monitors in the field, emergency departments, and hospital settings on an ongoing basis. This is a public-private partnership between Sotera Wireless Inc. and the University of Washington-Harborview Center for Prehospital Emergency Care. Sotera manufactures and markets the ViSi Mobile System, which is capable of continuous, non-invasive monitoring of heart rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate, and pulse oximetry, with wireless transmission of data and alerts. Sotera and the Center for Prehospital Emergency Care are jointly responsible for operating PHAROS.
