Updates:

Thanks to Oregon private and fire agencies, we received over 500 cases for the chart review phase of our study!  We had 12 EMT-Ps and 7 MDs serving as our chart reviewers.  These individuals are experienced providers in the field of emergency medicine, and have been trained using our chart extraction tool.  We are currently finishing the analyses from this chart review and will update this page with findings and any publications soon.
