B.C. Ambulance chief defends changes to dispatch system
from The Vancouver Sun
There are only three medical emergencies for which rapid ambulance responses are proven to make a difference to the life or death of a patient, according to B.C. ambulance leaders: cardiac arrest, respiratory arrest, and total airway obstruction. "Those are the big three where you can get big saves," says Dr. William Dick, an emergency room physician at Surrey Memorial who is vice-president of medical programs for B.C. Emergency Health Services (B.C. Ambulance).
