Background

The Howard County Department of Fire & Rescue Services (HCDFRS) has modeled Seattle and King County Washington’s cardiac care methods to study and measure survival from cardiac arrest. After forming a strong relationship with the Resuscitation Academy in Seattle, Washington, HCDFRS implemented what was learned from Seattle and King County EMS to improve survival from Cardiac Arrest in Howard County. Encouraged by substantial increases in survival, Howard County was inspired to share best practices learned from Seattle. HCDFRS partnered with the Seattle Resuscitation Academy and held the first East Coast Resuscitation Academy in May, 2012. Recently partnering with the Maryland Institute of Emergency Medical Services Systems (MIEMSS), this effort is now known as the Maryland Resuscitation Academy. Read More

Academy Goals
  • Learn how to define the cardiac arrest survival rate in the host community.
  • Understand the principles of the Utstein template and how to report data.
  • Develop a concrete plan of action to improve survival.
  • Measure the effect of the plan of action on cardiac arrest survival.
Mission

The goal of the Maryland Resuscitation Academy is to improve survival from cardiac arrest throughout the state of Maryland and its surrounding regions. This will be achieved through the enrollment of EMS managers, medical directors, 911 dispatchers, and EMS field personnel in a program modeled after Seattle's Resuscitation Academy and conducted by The Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services, and MIEMSS.
